The big game is just around the corner. It won't be long before you sit in front of your TV watching the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Kansas City Chiefs at Super Bowl LV to see who becomes the 2021 champion. You may even have put together a pool to play with for money or alternative prizes for extra fun. Here's how to win Super Bowl squares (or at least improve your chances of winning).
How Super Bowl Squares Work
If you are part of the Super Bowl Football Squares Pool and it is done correctly, there is really no way you can improve your chances of winning. This is because the numbers for the game are randomly assigned after all the fields in the game are filled. This means that no one knows what numbers they have until they have already selected squares. This ensures that those who get the most desirable spots do so by chance.
How to Win Super Bowl Squares
The key is that there is no way you can improve the odds of winning if the game is set up properly. The reason it is often possible to improve your chances of winning is because these games are often not set up properly. You can do this by understanding the likelihood of which number combinations from previous Super Bowls are most likely to appear. Knowing the combinations of numbers with the greatest likelihood of occurrence can help you choose those slots that give you a distinct advantage over those who later join the pool or fail to understand that some squares are much more likely to win than others.
If the soccer fields are set up correctly, all participants must select their square (under the white squares from the image above) before writing the 0-9 numbers for both teams (the gray squares in the image above). The mistake that is more common than it should be is that the 0-9 numbers are filled in before people choose their squares. In this case, you can choose squares that are much more likely to pay than those that don't because you know exactly where they are. Even if you don't know anything about soccer, you have a good chance of winning if you know the numbers that are most likely to appear. Here are the numbers you need to know:
The simple rule of thumb is that you want squares with the numbers 0, 7, 3, and 4 and avoid squares with the numbers 2 or 5. When given a choice, you'll want to choose one of the following five combinations:
If you look at the past Super Bowls, this is how many times all the numbers have appeared: "0" has appeared 101 times (26.9%), "7" has appeared 78 times (20.7%), "3" has appeared 58 times (26.7%). 15.4%), "4" is 39 times (10.4%), "6" is 31 times (8.2%), "1" is 23 times (6.1%), "9" is 17 Times (4.5%), "8" was published 10 times (2.7%), "5" was published 10 times (2.7%) and "2" was published 9 times (2.4%).
Take note of this and good luck!
Understanding that the 0-0 square (or any of the other squares mentioned above) seems much more likely than the 2-2 square (or any other square not mentioned above) at some point during the game, you can significantly increase the probability You win one of the prizes. It is important to note that these are the odds, and it does not mean that the above numbers are guaranteed to win. They simply suggest going past past Super Bowl games, which numbers seem much more likely and which don't.
With the above knowledge, you can take advantage of any game where the 0-9 numbers have already been written on the sheet before filling out your fields and increase the probability of winning. A better course of action, at least in my opinion, would be to point out the bug in the way the game was set up. The game can then be set up properly so that it is random and no one has an advantage over others when the numbers are chosen.
