Super Bowl Betting Lines
Bettors can make an array of different bets when betting on the Super Bowl in Kansas.
Just like any regular season NFL game, the most common Super Bowl bets are on moneylines, spreads, and totals. However, a big part of Super Bowl betting is the massive array of prop bets with odds extending well beyond just the action on the field.
The moneyline is the most straightforward. It involves simply picking the winner of the game. Odds are adjusted based on the perceived quality between the two teams. Since the Chiefs are a slight underdog in Super Bowl LVII you can bet them to win at more favorable odds than the Philadelphia Eagles.
With Point spread, sportsbooks identify the margin of victory for the favored team. The larger the spread, the heavier the favorite one side is. Because the two sides in Super Bowl LVII are relatively even the spread is small (i.e. KC +2). This means for the Chiefs to cover the spread they need to win the game out right or loss by just a single point.
Point totals distinguish themselves from moneylines and spreads in that they’re only concerned with the total points the two teams combine to score. If you expect a lot of offense back the over. If you think it will be more of a defensive grind take the under.
Prop bets are side bets on the game. These usually don't correlate to the overall outcome of the game. They are more concerned with specific milestones a player/team will hit during the game. Bettors can find odds and bet on
- Over/unders on Patrick Mahomes passing yards
- Odds of Travis Kelce scoring a touchdown
- Kansas City Chiefs to record more than 1.5 sacks
The Super Bowl lends itself to several props that aren’t available for any other NFL games. Many have little to do with the actual game itself. Examples include:
- Odds of the broadcasters mentioning gambling odds
- Over/under times of a players spouse being shown
- The color of the Gatorade poured on the winning coach
