Super Bowl LV: Tampa Bay Buccaneers vs. Kansas City Chiefs

It’s official: The Tampa Bay Buccaneers will be the first team in NFL history to play in a Super Bowl game in their home stadium. They’ve been overcoming their underdog status on the NFL betting lines throughout most of the playoffs and are once again underdogs on the NFL odds board against the defending champion Kansas City Chiefs for the big game on February 7. With Tom Brady taking on Patrick Mahomes, we’re expecting a wild ride to the Vince Lombardi trophy, so tune in at 6:30 PM ET to see how it unrolls.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Entering the postseason as a fifth seed in the NFC, Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers have had an impressive playoff run thus far. They overcame the tough defensive units of the Washington Football Team and New Orleans Saints, scoring a combined 61 points in those two games. Following that, they found a way to stop this season’s most productive QB, Aaron Rodgers, from winning the NFC Championship at Lambeau Field, sacking him five times and intercepting him once. 

Brady has vacillated between greatness and adequacy during these playoffs, and fortunately for the Bucs, when he’s struggled, the defensive unit has picked up the slack. This was the case in the NFC Championship game that saw two versions of Brady; one in the first half where he orchestrated three impressive touchdowns, with the third being a 39-yard laser pass to Scotty Miller as time expired. In the second half, however, Brady threw three interceptions as Green Bay attempted but failed to mount a comeback. 

Which Brady suits up for the Super Bowl remains to be seen. He has faced KC QB Patrick Mahomes only four times in his career, splitting the games 2-2. The most recent matchup was in Week 12 of the 2020 regular season and it ended poorly for Brady. Kansas City’s star receiver, Tyreek Hill had the game of his life that evening, catching 13 passes for 269 yards and three touchdowns. KC walked away with a 27-24 victory that contributed to their 10-game win streak and solidified their status as top contenders on the NFL Vegas odds. 

Kansas City Chiefs

Led by an ultra-talented quarterback, the defending champions are back and hungry for another ring after a wildly successful 14-2 campaign—their best regular season record to date. As top seeds in the AFC, they skipped the Wild Card round and joined the action at the Divisional Round, which required them to dispatch the Cleveland Browns 22-17 as hefty 10-point favourites. Their odds shrunk to —3 when they went up against the Josh Allen-led Buffalo Bills, who had the unfortunate challenge of having to defend against TE Travis Kelce. The 6X Pro Bowler had an incredible game, putting up 118 receiving yards on 13 receptions, while scoring two straight touchdowns in the second half. Mahomes had a big night too, throwing for 325 yards and three touchdowns, with a 76.3% completion rate. 

If KC’s dominant offense weren’t enough (and it usually is), every time possession returned to the Bills, the KC defensive unit smothered them, sacking Allen four times and intercepting him once. His attempted escapes from the persistent KC pass rush resulted in a cringeworthy -53 yards lost through sacks—the second-most in a single game in his career.

But despite Allen having an incredible season and vying for MVP, he is no Tom Brady in the playoffs, and the Bucs are far better at protecting their QB against the blitz than Buffalo; Brady gave up just five yards on one sack to the Green Bay Packers in their NFC Conference game. Beyond enjoying a high level of pass protection, Brady is perhaps best known for his big-game potential. The Chiefs’ defense will need to be on guard and ready to block Brady from executing deep passes when it matters most. No other team had more 40-plus yard plays than the Bucs this season, which is part of the reason why they’re so effective at mounting comebacks under pressure. 

Do you think Brady has it in him for one more Super Bowl ring, or will KC become the ninth team to win back-to-back Super Bowls? Get your bets in before the game starts for the most value on the Super Bowl odds board. Once the game begins, the live odds will follow the action.

Super Bowl Point Spread Betting

 

In most games, there’s one team that has greater odds of winning: the favourite. In order to even the playing field between the favourite and the underdog, point spreads establish a margin of victory that the favourite must win by. The underdog can lose by this spread and still win the bet. In the event of a 3.5-point spread, the favourite must win by at least 4 points to cover the spread, and the underdog can lose by 3 or fewer points and still pay its backers.

Super Bowl Moneyline Betting

 

The moneyline lets you simply pick the winner of a game, with no spread attached. The odds attached to each team are the odds you’ll be paid out with if your team wins.

Super Bowl Totals Betting

 

Instead of predicting the game winner, like you’d do on the moneyline and spread, totals betting lets you bet on how offensive or defensive a game will be. Pre-game, oddsmakers pick a total number of points to be scored between both teams; you guess if the actual number of points will go over or under that number.

Super Bowl Prop Betting

 

Another way to bet on NFL beyond picking the winning team of a game is through prop betting. Proposed by oddsmakers, props are side bets that enrich the betting experience. These bets could be based on something that happens throughout the entire season, like whether or not a team will make the playoffs. They can also be based on individual player stats, like will a star quarterback break passing records this season or whether or not he'll throw for at least one touchdown in a game. When the Super Bowl approaches, the props market explodes with options, so be sure to keep an eye on it to scoop up some value bets.

NFL Parlay Betting

 

There are two types of people in NFL wagering: those who prefer the safety of making individual bets, and those who like to link bets together for a chance to win a massive payout. People in the latter group look to parlays for their bets. A parlay lets you link together up to 12 different lines. They have to all come through for you to win the monster payout in the end.

Super Bowl Futures Betting

 

Delayed gratification certainly pays out in the NFL betting world. Trying to predict a long-term outcome in the futures market, like which team will win the Super Bowl, requires patience, but there’s a lot more value than if you try to pick the winner the day of The Big Game.

Super Bowl Teaser Betting

 

If you like the idea of parlaying lines together, but want the comfort of reduced risk, teasers are for you. This “add on” feature lets you shift the point spread in your favour by 6, 6.5 or 7 points. For example, a 7-point teaser applied to a line where the New England Patriots are 12-point favourites on the spread would make them 5-point favourites, which is much more attainable.  Just keep in mind, in addition to reducing the risk, it also reduces the payout.

Buying Points on the Super Bowl

 

Like teasers, buying points reduces risk by shifting the spread in your favour. But instead of systematically shifting all the lines in a parlay by 6 to 7 points, you are buying a half-point at a time on individual bets. You could take the Atlanta Falcons for —7.5 on the spread, and change it to—7 by buying a half-point.

NFL Round Robin Betting

 

Round robin betting covers all possible outcomes for the lines you want to bet by breaking them into parlays. For example, if you want to include the following three lines on your bet slip: Atlanta Falcons —7, Seattle Seahawks —3, and Cincinnati Bengals —6, you can improve your chances of success by using a round robin. This popular bet breaks the lines into three two-team parlays:

TEAM SPREAD
Atlanta Falcons -7
Seattle Seahawks -3

 

 

Atlanta Falcons -7
Cincinnati Bengals -6

 

Seattle Seahawks -3
Cincinnati Bengals -6

 

With this round robin, hitting just one winning parlay would almost make your money back.
