Super Bowl LV SBG Odds Overview
Cause of their defending champion status, the Chiefs are favored. Kansas City became too popular with the masses this season. As a result, their sports betting value precipitously declined.

Traditional Side Betting
Super Bowl side betting remains the most common form. Accordingly, gamblers can take the Chiefs -3 points or the Buccaneers at +3 points.
Money Line Betting
Fans wanting to pick the straight-up winner prefer the money line. Kansas City backers can bet $170 to win $100. Counter to that is a $100 bet on Tampa Bay to win $150. Should Kansas City win, 21-20, the money line bet would win. However, a KC point spread wager would lose. The opposite would hold for the Bucs in this example. They would cover a 21-20 loss as 3-point dogs. But they would lose the money line bet.
Over/Under Totals Betting
Fashion that wagering on the total pertains to the final combined score. Opening odds have the total at 56.5. The winner of the game is irrelevant. A final score of 31-27 would be a combined total of 58. That means over the total pays. But a final score of 28-27 would be a combined score of 55. Meaning under the total wins the bet.
Betting on Halves
Extending the fun with Super Bowl betting lines is betting on halves. You can bet on the first and or second halves of the Super Bowl. Or bet on both, for that matter. There are point spreads and money lines available for each half. If you bet on one half, the other half of the game is irrelevant in deciding the wager.
Live In-Game Betting
In comparison, live in-game betting is the most exciting. Live betting means that you bet throughout the game on lines continuously updated as the game progresses.
On the whole, “prop” betting ranges from the opening coin toss to which team will score first or last. Additionally, you can bet on how many yards or touchdowns each quarterback will throw. Total yards and touchdowns for receivers and rushers are standard options too. But there is so much more to Super Bowl Props. The list is length and fun!
