How Do Super Bowl Squares Work - Step By Step Guide

Have you ever used the Super Bowl square template to bet on the big game?

If you have not participated yet in a football betting pool we got your back. We have a step by step guide to how to play Super Bowl squares.

Our printable version of the Super Bowl LIV squares is down below ready to go. Just print it and have it ready to fill out at the office or at a Super Bowl party.

But before you do that, let's review a few basics rules on how this works.

How Do Super Bowl Squares Work?

Step 1 - Our printable Super Bowl squares template version is a 10-by-10 grid with 100 individual boxes. Assign the two Super Bowl teams to the blank grid, the first team on the top and the second one on the side of the template. 

Step 2 - You will need to assign a price per square. This will determine the prize pool. Start with $1 per square up to as much as your participants are willing to pay to get in on the action, and allow players to buy multiple squares to fill out the board.  

Step 3- Once the entry fee is determined, decide on your payouts. Most pools declare winners for the score at the end of the first three quarters in addition to the final whistle, though some pay out at just halftime and at the end of the game. Prizes for the winners vary depending on your setup but usually, the first and third quarters will have matching payouts with an increase for halftime and an even larger boost for the final score of the game. 

Step 4- Long before the game kicks off, the players will write their names down in the boxes of their choosing until the entire grid is full. Let each player pick whichever square they want, so long as it hasn't been chosen by another player. 

Step 5- Use a random number generator to pick numbers from 0 to 9 and list them at the edges of the grid to cover all columns and rows, which will assign a digit for each team to each of the 100 boxes.

Step 6- Gather as many people as you can together to watch the big game in Miami. Football squares are meant to be a fun and interactive game, so it's best played at a watch party with some of the other players involved.

Strategy In Super Bowl Square Betting

There is a Super Bowl squares betting strategy. Football squares odds prediction is close to impossible so the only viable strategy is a lot of luck but there is definitely an edge. Office football pools or Super Bowl parties are usually filled with folks betting for fun and not really having good knowledge of football rules in particular how scoring works. These people want to get involved in Super Bowl 54 square betting mostly for the thrill of winning. They are amateurs with no understanding of the game. There’s your first edge. 

What Are The Best football Squares To Have?

The best squares to have will generally be some combination of zeroes and/or sevens. The Harvard Sports Analysis Collective wrote that the single best square to have is seven on the favorite's axis and zero on the underdog's, with the 0-0 square a close second. Three, four and one also aren't bad numbers to have from an odds standpoint.

What Are The Worst Football Squares To Have?

Any combination of twos or fives. According to the aforementioned Harvard Sports Analysis Collective post, the 2-2 square and 2-5 square are among the worst because it usually takes some combination of safeties, missed extra points or other general strangeness to get there.
