Super Bowl Bets 2021

Leave it to the former New England Patriots superstar to step up big for the Buccaneers when the franchise needed it most. No, I’m not talking about Tom Brady, whose 201 passing yards and three touchdowns helped lead the Buccaneers to a 31-9 Super Bowl 55 victory over the Chiefs, but rather his tag-team partner, tight end Rob Gronkowski who posted his best stat line of the season when he hauled in six receptions for 67 yards and two touchdowns and raised the Lombardi Trophy once again. As for Brady, he now has seven Super Bowl rings, more than any one NFL franchise.

While there will be time to reflect on the G.O.A.T.’s career at a later date, the veteran quarterback is looking ahead to the 2021 season as too are bookmakers at our top-rated NFL online sportsbooks. The good people over at Bovada posted their way-too-early Super Bowl 56 odds and would you look at that, the favorites to win would mean a Super Bowl 55 rematch next February.

Super Bowl 55 Betting Odds

If defense truly wins championships, the Chiefs and Buccaneers didn’t get the memo. Your Super Bowl 55 matchup features two hyper-offenses which average more than 60 points per game combined in addition to an iconic duel between the NFL’s old quarterback guard, Tom Brady, and rising star signal caller, Patrick Mahomes.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers VS Kansas City Chiefs

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are the first team in NFL history to host the Super Bowl on their home field. Despite the perceived Super Bowl 55 advantage, the Kansas City Chiefs opened and remain 3-point road favorites at most of our recommended online sportsbooks. The Buccaneers could be found at +3.5 for most of last week, however the spread now sits at 3 at all the books we can find. The Chiefs may have covered -3 in their AFC Championship win over the Bills, but remain just 1-8-1 against the spread over their past 10 games, while Tom Brady and the Buccaneers are 7-3 ATS over their past 10 and 7-0 since their regular season BYE week.

Super Bowl 55 Game Info

Through the first 54 Super Bowls, the state of Florida has hosted 16 of the big game. So, more than 37% of all Super Bowls have been played in the Sunshine State. While Miami earned the nod in 2020, Tampa Bay will play Super Bowl host this year and for the first time since 2009 when many vividly recall Santonio Holmes catching the game-winning touchdown from Ben Roethlisberger with just 35 seconds remaining to hand the Steelers their sixth Lombardi Trophy.

Super Bowl Betting Tips

With so many of us glued to our televisions on Super Bowl Sunday, the idea of NOT placing a little wager creates a sense of extreme FOMO or fear of missing out. Just remember, betting on the Super Bowl is suppose to be a fun source of entertainment. Here are some helpful tips to consider before placing your Super Bowl bet this February.

Non-Game Prop Bets

Typically a Super Bowl features two, somewhat evenly matched teams, right? So, if you’re looking to avoid making an educated bet on the point spread, moneyline or point total before the game, stay focused on the non-game / entertainment prop bets. These include the outcome of the opening coin toss, what product the first commercial will be promoting, certain phrases Jim Nantz and Tony Romo might say while calling the game, halftime show wardrobe malfunctions and who the Super Bowl MVP thanks first after the game. These prop bets are perfect for the casual Super Bowl bettors.

LIVE Betting

LIVE betting a sporting event is great because you get a better feel of the game flow after it’s started. Our recommended online sportsbooks will offer LIVE betting during Super Bowl 55. So, if the underdog jumps ahead in the first quarter and you still like the favorite to rally back to win, LIVE betting allows you to place a wager at a cheaper price after the game has started. LIVE odds change frequently so you have to be quick with your betting trigger finger.

Player Prop Bets

Who will score the game’s first touchdown, how many receptions will the top receiver have at game’s end and will a kicker connect on more than 3 field goals in Super Bowl 55 are all examples of player props you should look into. Also, because this game will be played in Tampa Bay, always be cognizant of the weather forecast because that could impact some of your player prop bets, too.

Bankroll Management

If we’ve said it once, we’ve said it a million times: bet within your means and that goes for the Super Bowl, too. It’s wise to set aside a pool of money you plan on wagering on the NFL championship game before opening kickoff. If you run out, don’t worry the next NFL season and Super Bowl will be here before you know it.

Top 5 Super Bowls All Time

While your favorite Super Bowl memories may hinge on how many hot wings and malted beverages you consumed, the league has served up some iconic on-the-field moments that we’ll never forget.

Here are our top games played on Super Sunday:

Patriots Fans Super Bowl 51 Scoreboard
01

Super Bowl 51

Falcons fans look away. The Patriots entered the game as 3-point Super Bowl favorites, but fell behind 28-3 midway through the third quarter. All Tom Brady did was engineer the biggest comeback in Super Bowl history to tie the game late and win the championship in overtime, 34-28. Of their six Lombardi Trophies, Patriots fans will remember this one as “unequivocally, the sweetest” thanks in large to Brady fighting back from a four game suspension at the start of the season. When the New England Patriots were down 28-3 midway through the third quarter in Super Bowl 51, a $100 bet would have paid out $1600 at a live sports book.

Super Bowl 43 Harrison Interception return
02

Super Bowl 43

A game that was full of big plays, from James Harrison’s 100 yard interception return for a touchdown to Ben Roethlisberger finding Santonio Holmes in the back of the end zone with only 35 seconds left. The eventual game-winner muted Arizona’s 16-point fourth quarter, but Pittsburgh’s 27-24 victory was enough to hand Cardinals +7 backers a Super Bowl cover.

Super Bowl 13 Stallworth TD grab
03

Super Bowl 13

Back when the National Anthem was delivered by acts like “The Colgate 13”, halftime entertainment was a “Salute to the Caribbean,” and a 30-second commercial cost less than $200,000, Super Bowl 13 is well-known for costing Las Vegas an arm and a leg. Known as “Black Monday” in Sin City, fluctuating points spreads saw the Steelers favored by as many as 4.5 points, which Cowboys backers hammered, and as low as 3.5 points, which Pittsburgh slip holders enjoyed. As “luck” should have it, Terry Bradshaw’s Steelers won by 35-31 and sportsbooks got hammered on both sides as the public beat Vegas.

Super Bowl 42 Tyree Helmet Catch
04

Super Bowl 42

New England’s pursuit of perfection in Super Bowl 42 was stymied, in part, by Eli Manning, David Tyree and Tyree’s helmet as the New York Giants upset the undefeated Patriots who were favored by 12 points. A 21-point fourth quarter was highlighted by Eli Manning’s game-winning touchdown strike to Plaxico Burress to hand the Giants a 17-14 Super Bowl victory.

Super Bowl 49 Butler Interception
05

Super Bowl 49

When Russell Wilson connected with Jermaine Kearse for a 33-yard gain, down to the Patriots 5-yard line, New England could feel their all-but-certain Super Bowl 49 victory fading away. However, after handing the ball off to Marshawn Lynch on first down to advance just inches from the goal line, Pete Carroll elected to pass on second, which resulted in one of the most dramatic interceptions in Super Bowl history and made Malcom Butler a hero and household name in an instant. Plus, what many probably forget, the Pats pulled off a slight upset as the Seahawks were 1-point favorites heading in to the big game.
