As a site that specializes in Super Bowl prop bets, we understand how difficult it can sometimes be to track down what you would think were simple facts. The Super Bowl is the largest sporting event in the country (world?) and yet there is a general lack of historical information. Information such as the all-time results of the Super Bowl coin toss/flip.

This information is useful for everyone paying attention to the game before the game. The only true 50-50 proposition you'll find: the ever-popular coin toss.
