Download this free printable 2018 Super Bowl Betting Squares grid from Stylish Spoon with the New England Patriots and the Philadelphia Eagles on the grid for your 2018 Super Bowl party. Betting Squares are my favorite way to get everyone, even those who are only there for the food/commercials (my hand is raised high!) into the game. Use the free printable 2018 Super Bowl Betting Squares template, or make a large 2018 super bowl betting squares version on poster board or kraft paper by drawing a 10-by-10 grid and writing the name of one team on the top of the grid and the other team on the left-hand side.
Here’s how to play: Invite everyone to buy squares for $1 to $5 per square ($1 per square puts $100 in the pool; $5 per square makes it $500), filling in their chosen squares with their name or initials. After all the squares are filled, draw numbers (0 to 9) out of a hat and assign each number one at a time, moving from the left to right along the top of the grid, and top to bottom down the side of the grid.
The object of this pool is to have the combination of numbers that match the last numbers in the score of the game (i.e., if the score was 21-17, then the person whose square is located at the intersection of 1 and 7 would win). Give payouts at the end of the first quarter (10 percent of the pool amount), at half time (15 percent), at the end of the third quarter (10 percent), and at the end of the game (65 percent).
