By now, you should have your numbers for your Super Bowl Square Pools.
You know the good numbers – 0, 3, 7 – and you know the bad ones – 2, 5, 9.
But just how good are the good numbers and how bad are the bad ones?
What about the average numbers?
And what exact boxes give you the best chances at winning?
There are multiple different formats for Square Pools – some pay every score, some pay every minute.
But most pay at the end of each quarter.
Here’s a look at your overall chances of winning at least one quarter during Sunday’s game based on your numbers with data based on 10,000 simulations of Super Bowl LVI courtesy of The Action Network.
It’s an interesting breakdown that takes into account each team’s likelihood of scoring, so the numbers aren’t perfect mirrors of each other.
Not surprisingly, 0-0 and 7-0 (either way) are among the best numbers along with 3-0 (either way), 7-3 (favoring Rams) 3-3, 7-7, 7-4 (either way) and 4-0 (either way).
You’re not dead if you pulled a 2, 5 or 9, but…well good luck.
Check out the The Action Network’s piece for a more in-depth breakdown that includes which numbers are best for which quarterrs.
