Super Bowl week is upon is and we have the Super Bowl 55 Betting Preview for you. The Tampa Bucs will be the home team technically and figuratively. The Kansas City Chiefs will be the road time. The Super Bowl is the biggest bet game of the season and sportsbooks tend to offer more betting options for that reason. There are so many betting options! Moneyline, spread, over under, team totals, teasers, player props, game props, and exotics. It’s ONLY Monday but let’s take a look at this Super Bowl 55 betting preview.
Super Bowl 55 Betting Lines
The Kansas City Chiefs are favored by -3.5 as of Monday and the over under is set at 56.5. If you think the Chiefs will win but not cover the -3.5 you could take them on the moneyline at -165 or buy a half a point and get -3 at -125 odds. Lots of options and plenty of things to consider before making your Super Bowl 55 bets. Let’s take a look at each team and how they have performed this season.
Kansas City Chiefs Super Bowl Preview
The Kansas City Chiefs finished the regular season 14-2 and one of those losses came in Week 17 in a game where they rested their starters. Not taking anything away from the greatness of the Chiefs but they only played four teams that made the playoffs all season. They had a scare in their Divisional Round game against the Cleveland Browns. After taking a 19-3 lead into halftime, Mahomes was injured and the Browns made a strong push in the second half but came up short – final score 22-17. Kansas City got Mahomes back for the AFC Championship game and that was a good game for about one quarter before the Chiefs ran away with it. The Chiefs finished the regular season averaging 29.6 points per game on offense and allowing 22.6 points per game on defense. The Chiefs ranked #13 in the league against the pass and #19 in the league against the run this season. Kansas City was just 7-9 against the spread and 8-8 on over/under totals.
Tampa Bay Bucs Super Bowl Preview
The Bucs were 7-5 at one point and all the experts were doubting them. Not only the Bucs but Tom Brady who these experts continue to doubt even when he’s proven them wrong time and time again. The Bucs went from 7-5 to now winning 7 straight games. They went on the road and won all three of their playoff games. Two of those games came against Drew Brees and Aaron Rodgers. It’s been an impressive run for these Bucs to get back to the Super Bowl for the first time since the 2002 season. But the Chiefs already beat them this season and things won’t be any easier this time around. The Bucs averaged 30.8 points per game on offense and allowed 22.2 points per game on defense. The Bucs ranked #21 against the pass and #1 against the run this season. Tampa Bay went 9-7 against the spread and 9-7 against over/under totals.
Super Bowl 55 Weather
The weather isn’t always a factor in the Super Bowl because 8 of the last 10 Super Bowls have been played in stadiums with a roof. The weather could be a major factor on Sunday if it doesn’t change. As of Monday morning, there’s a 60% chance of rain. We won’t know if it’s just a passing shower or steady rain until we get closer to Sunday. If it’s going to be steady rain, that’s a major advantage for the Bucs. If Mahomes can’t throw the ball as much or effectively as usual and the Chiefs have to try running the ball against this #1 ranked Bucs run defense that helps the Bucs. BE SURE TO CHECK THE WEATHER BEFORE YOU LOCK IN YOUR BETS. More than 70% of the public have placed their early bets without checking the weather. Good luck!
Chiefs vs Bucs Review
These two played each other back on November 29th. The Chiefs got out to a quick start in that game with a 27-10 lead before the Bucs made a late push but came up short losing 27-24. The big performers in that game were 1. Pat Mahomes 462 passing yards 2. Tyreek Hill and his 269 yards for 3 touchdowns. 3. Tom Brady 345 yards, 3 touchdowns, but 2 interceptions. I think Tyreek Hill player props need to be considered this Sunday based on his performance against the Bucs back in November. Which Bucs defense will show up? Will it be the one that got absolutely torched early or the one that played great defense in the second half of that game?
