Odds of Scoring a Safety 2015 Super Bowl – Like Taking Candy From a Baby

Skybook.ag had odds of NOT scoring a safety in the 2015 Super Bowl set at -1000.  You would have to bet $100 to win $10 (the $100 will be returned assuming there is no safety scored along with your $10 winnings).

Crazy odds you say, but yet this is probably one Super Bowl 49’s biggest “locks”.  No way does a safety occur in four straight Super Bowls.

For starters, oddsmakers have always offered the “no safety” price right around -1000 odds for each Super Bowl and typically 6/1 if a safety was scored.

Last year shocked everyone.  Not only did we have a safety scored, it was the first score in the initial few seconds of the game.  A few books actually offered odds on whether a safety would be the first score at much more generous odds than 6/1.

There were only 20 safeties scored in the entire 2014 regular season.  New England did not score any safeties while Seattle scored one and that was in last year’s Super Bowl.  The Patriots have not scored a safety over their last two seasons. 

The odds are just so against a 4th straight safety we say take the enormous risk and get some easy money.  You can always hold back a bit and bet $20 to win $2.  $200 pays $20, enough to fill a tank of gas for some of you this Super Bowl.
