Step right up, folks! It's time to talk about the Super Bowl, the star-studded championship match that crowns the annual NFL season with all the razzle-dazzle you'd expect. Each year, on the first Sunday of February, Americans across the country gather around their TVs for what we call "Super Bowl Sunday".

We've been doing this dance since 1967 when the Super Bowl first burst on the scene, electrifying the nation. Born from the AFL-NFL merger, it's a showdown between the champions of the NFL conferences. Now, let's crunch some numbers. The National Football Conference (NFC) is sitting pretty with 29 Super Bowl victories. Their latest triumph? Why, that would be the Los Angeles Rams, who snatched victory from the Cincinnati Bengals in Super Bowl 56 for the 2021/22 NFL season.

On the other side of the fence, we have the American Football Conference (AFC) with 27 wins under their belt. Their recent victory lap was led by the Chiefs, who ousted the Eagles in Super Bowl 57 for the 2022/23 NFL season.

Let's take a little stroll down memory lane to Super Bowl I when the Green Bay Packers (NFL) trounced the Kansas City Chiefs (AFL) in a decisive 35-10 victory. Now, Super Bowl isn't just about the game, oh no. It's a betting bonanza! NFL Championship odds are open nearly all year round.

Plus, who could forget the world-famous Super Bowl half-time show that often inspires novelty bets on the entertainment act? Every Super Bowl preview includes the best part of the game: commercials. Ads at the Super Bowl are all but expected, and advertising slots have become a hot commodity over the years!
