In some years, the outcome of the Super Bowl is almost set before the game starts. In Super Bowl XX, when the 15-1 Chicago Bears took the field against the New England Patriots, things seemed almost unfair. Led by quarterback Jim McMahon and running the vaunted 46 defense, the Bears had their way with the Patriots, turning the league’s title game into a laugher from start to finish, as lineman William “The Refrigerator” Perry ended up scoring a touchdown for the Monsters of the Midway. However, there are other years when the online sports betting underdog ends up carrying the day. When the Seattle Seahawks lined up against the Denver Broncos in early 2014 for the Super Bowl, many thought that Peyton Manning and the Broncos would cruise against the Seahawks, who had a reputation for a much balkier offense. However, the shock of a missed shotgun snap that became a safety never quite faded for the Broncos, who fell to the Seahawks in a lopsided rout.
Many times, the Super Bowl ends up a victory for the underdog. Take a look at some of the most noteworthy instances throughout the history of the league.
