Football enthusiasts don’t want to miss the start of the Super Bowl and might be asking, “When does the Super Bowl start?” Here’s the answer. On February 11, 2024, millions of football fans will tune in to watch Super Bowl 58, which will be held at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas, Nevada, and broadcast live on CBS Sports. There won’t be a repeat of last year’s memorable Super Bowl between the Chiefs and Eagles, as Philadelphia was eliminated by Tampa Bay in the Wild Card round. However, the Chiefs still have a shot at winning again, having secured their Super Bowl spot after victories over the Buffalo Bills and Baltimore Ravens following a Wild Card round win over the Dolphins. The 49ers are returning to the Super Bowl for the first time since the 2019 season when they also played against the Chiefs. They defeated the Green Bay Packers and Detroit Lions on their way to their eighth Super Bowl appearance in team history. The top Super Bowl betting sites are expected to handle over $8 billion in bets, making it the largest event in US sports betting history. In 2023, more than $16 billion was bet on the Super Bowl. Keep reading to find out when Super Bowl 58 starts, when the Super Bowl halftime show will be, and other important details.
When does the Super Bowl start?
The 2024 Super Bowl is set to kick off at around 6:30 p.m. ET, which will be 3:30 p.m. local time in Las Vegas and for viewers on the West Coast. It now takes place on the second Sunday in February, following a one-week extension of the regular season in 2021. The 2023 Super Bowl, which took place on Sunday, February 12 at State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona and featured the Philadelphia Eagles vs the Kansas City Chiefs for Super Bowl 57, kicked off right at 6:30 p.m. ET (3:30 p.m. PT). You can watch all the action on CBS Sports, which has secured live coverage rights for the big game this NFL season as part of its three-year rotation with FOX Sports and NBC. Jim Nantz will provide the play-by-play, with former Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo serving as analyst. You can also stream the game live on the CBS Sports app, NFL Game Pass, Hulu Plus, and Sling TV. The first major event will be the coin toss, with millions of dollars bet on the outcome, making it one of the most popular Super Bowl 58 prop bets. Last year in Super Bowl LVII, the Kansas City Chiefs won the coin toss with tails (and won the game over the Philadelphia Eagles in State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Ariz.). This was the second time in six years that tails landed, though it has landed 54% of the time in Super Bowl history, although this trend does not affect the Super Bowl 58 odds. The Dallas Cowboys (6), San Francisco 49ers (5), Miami Dolphins (4), Raiders (3), New England Patriots (3), and Seattle Seahawks (3) have the most coin toss wins in Super Bowl history.
2024 Super Bowl Location
The 2024 Super Bowl, also known as Super Bowl LVIII, will be held at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas, Nevada. This is the home stadium of the Las Vegas Raiders, marking the first time the Super Bowl will be held in this city. NFL owners decided in December 2021 to give Las Vegas the 2024 Super Bowl, as the Raiders had just opened a new stadium in the city and the league has become more accepting of a clear relationship with legal betting. Before the Chiefs’ victory at State Farm Stadium in 2023, the previous two Super Bowls were won by teams playing in their home stadiums – the Los Angeles Rams and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. However, this trend will not continue this season as the Raiders did not make it to the postseason.
The Super Bowl is set to kick off at 6:30 p.m. ET, but betting will continue. As with all recent Super Bowls, you will have thousands of different pregame betting options on NFL betting apps before the estimated 6:30 p.m. ET kickoff on February 11, 2024, for Super Bowl 58. These will include a wide variety of team props, player props, and exotic props, including the coin toss. Make sure you’ve registered at the legal sportsbooks in your state, used the correct Super Bowl betting promo codes to unlock the best welcome bonuses, and placed your bets before the game starts. However, the fun doesn’t stop there. All major sportsbooks will offer hundreds of markets on their live betting sites on Super Bowl LVIII, allowing you to keep betting on the action until just seconds remain in the game. The point spread, moneyline, and totals will be continuously updated throughout the game. Unique live bets focus on short-term markets, like whether the next offensive play will be a run or a pass. If you can think of it, chances are your online sportsbook will have it as an option to bet on during the big game. And while you’re watching the Super Bowl halftime show, look out for sportsbooks that offer odds boosts on the second half. It’s an easy way to increase your potential payouts on bets, and they should be available on a variety of different markets, such as whether a player will score in the second half or updated Super Bowl MVP odds on the Super Bowl.
Super Bowl Halftime Show Start Time
The average Super Bowl lasts 3 hours and 12 minutes. This means the halftime show is expected to start sometime between 7:50 p.m. ET and 8:20 p.m. ET at Super Bowl LVIII, assuming the Super Bowl start time is indeed 6:30 p.m. Note that Super Bowl LVII kicked off at 6:44 p.m., so the time is a bit flexible. Usher will be the main performer at the Super Bowl LVIII halftime show, marking his second appearance at the Super Bowl. He also performed with the Black Eyed Peas in 2011. Last year, the Super Bowl LVII halftime act was Rihanna, who featured a baby bump that had the internet talking. Other notable entertainment for the Super Bowl this year includes Reba McEntire singing the National Anthem, Post Malone performing America the Beautiful, and Andra Day performing Lift Every Voice and Sing.
The halftime show is always one of the most anticipated events among Super Bowl viewers. It started as a relatively modest event, with the Grambling College Band performing at Super Bowl I and Super Bowl II, but it now attracts the most famous acts in the world. We have seen all sorts of iconic performances, from U2 at Super Bowl XXXVI to Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, Kendrick Lamar, Mary J. Blige, Eminem, and 50 Cent at Super Bowl LVI. Famous singers usually perform the national anthem, too, including Whitney Houston at Super Bowl XXV, Billy Joel at Super Bowl XXIII, and Christina Aguilera at Super Bowl XLV, when the Green Bay Packers beat the Pittsburgh Steelers.
