  • The odds of Super Bowl 54 going to overtime were +1000 at DraftKings Sportsbook as of Sunday afternoon.
  • Before the Chiefs and 49ers kicked off, Evan Abrams examined the history and numbers of betting "yes" on the Super Bowl OT prop bet.

During Wild Card weekend, two of the four games went to overtime. Since then, the four Divisional Round games and two Conference Championship games ended in regulation.

So what are the odds we get another overtime game in Miami? Let’s take a look at the history of overtime and its correlation to the playoffs and the Super Bowl.

History of Overtime

Only one of the past 53 Super Bowls have gone to overtime: When the Patriots trailed the Falcons, 28-3, in Super Bowl 51 late in the third quarter then scored 25 unanswered points — including a game-tying touchdown and two-point conversion to force overtime.

Tom Brady and the Patriots won the coin toss and drove down the field, without even facing a third down. Then James White scored the game-winning touchdown to complete the biggest comeback in Super Bowl history.
