If you’re excited about the quickly approaching Super Bowl 51 showdown and you’re looking for more ways than ever to cash in on the final game of the 2016 NFL season, then you need to know about the simple, yet, fun-filled game called Super Bowl squares.

First, let’s get started with a definition of just what this game is.

## 2017 NFL Super Bowl Squares Strategy And How To Play Online

Super Bowl Squares is a game where each player picks one or more squares in a 10 x 10 grid. Each row and column corresponds to the home and visiting teams respectively. After the squares are selected by writing names in each of the 100 squares, every row and each column is assigned a unique digit, chosen at random, from 0-9. Squares become winning squares after the first three quarters and after the final score by using the ending digit of the score.

So, if after the first quarter, the score is Home Team 14 Visiting Team 3, then the square identified by the row with the number “4” and the column with the number “3” is the winning square for that quarter. Now, let’s get into possible strategies that you can use for Super Bowl Squares.

First and foremost, you should know that the most popular numbers are 0 and 7, with the least likely numbers being 2 and 8, making the most obvious strategy one where you pick the squares where a combination includes the numbers 0 and 7. If you can pick a combination that includes the numbers 0,7,3,4, then you’re well on your way toward being successful at Super Bowl Squares.

However, over time, you’ll come to find that Super Bowl Squares is a lot like Bingo in the sense that a player that has no knowledge of football is likely to win just as many squares as even the most ardent football enthusiast that is picking the same number of squares. Still, this fact doesn’t mean that you can’t use a strategy. One such extreme strategy includes a player selecting a specific row and column in an effort to maximize the chance of winning a single square, though this minimizes your chances of winning two or more squares in a single game.

The other extreme strategy also maximizes your chance of winning two or more squares, but gives you the chance to go home as the ‘big’ winner for the night.

This strategy says that you should select as many squares as allowed along the row/column corresponding to the visiting team or underdog in a contest that looks like a low-scoring affair waiting to happen. The first ‘extreme’ strategy maximizes winning something while the second maximizes winning two or more squares.
