Oddsmakers make Super Bowl overtime a 6-to-1 shot

Super Bowl Football AP

There has never been overtime in a Super Bowl.

And if you believe this is the year for bonus football, well, get on out to Las Vegas already.

The LVH SuperBook in Las Vegas and the William Hill U.S. sports books throughout Nevada have installed overtime in Sunday’s Super Bowl at MetLife Stadium as a 6-to-1 shot (+600), as has oddsmaker William Hill U.S.

Bettors pessimistic about overtime can take “No” at 1-to-9 (-900) at both books.

Overtime at the Super Bowl would be played under the revised rules that allow for both teams to possess the ball unless 1) the team receiving the kickoff scores a TD on its first possession or 2) the defense scores a safety on the first possession.

For the record, a safety is a 5.5-to-1 (+550) shot at the SuperBook, with no safety at 1-to-8 (-800).

There has been a safety in each of the last two Super Bowls, which has caused some chagrin among oddsmakers.

    As a Titans fan, I have two Super Bowl regrets: coming up 1 yard short and losing and coming up 1 yard short of giving football fans the excitement of an overtime for all the marbles.

    I would like to see it end in a TIE!
    How many overtime periods can they have?
    It would be historic!
    And Seattle still wouldn’t have won a SB!
