RELATED: HOW CHIEFS & BUCCANEERS GOT HERE
There is a lot to go over from a betting standpoint in advance of the Super Bowl between the Kansas City Chiefs and Tampa Bay Buccaneers, which is why David Tuchman is here: To provide daily Super Bowl 2021 betting updates leading to Super Bowl LV on Sunday, February 7.
RELATED: FULL LIST OF CHIEFS-BUCCANEERS ODDS
As of now, Kansas City is -3 (-120) meaning you risk $120 to win $100 or simply put, risking 6 to win 5. Tampa Bay is +3 (+100) which is an even-money bet. Bet $1 win $1. This implies that more money has been going on the Chiefs, but the books are hesitant to move off the all-important 3 number. Books will adjust the odds before they move off a pivotal number. Going from 1 to 1.5, not such a big deal, but moving off the 3 or the 7 is still big news.
And as I typed this, we’ve already seen Super Bowl 2021 betting updates, as it’s now the Chiefs -3.5 (+100) and the Buccaneers +3.5 (-121).
As for the total, it’s moved up to 56.5 so if you like offense, the game should be right up your alley.
The one thing that is uniquely fun about the Super Bowl is the ability to bet on almost anything in relation to it.
Taking a quick glance at Betrivers.com. I noticed there are 308 bets related to the Super Bowl.
Lets go over a few of them.
- Chiefs to win the game: -167
- Buccaneers to win the game +145
If you’re feeling strong conviction with regards to who will win the game, but you want to get a better price, take a look at the MVP odds.
The MVP almost always comes from the winning team. In fact, the only player to have ever lost the game, but win the MVP honors was Dallas Cowboys linebacker, Chuck Howley. This hasn’t happened in decades. The current odds on the MVP award to go to a player on the losing team is +5000.
In addition, the MVP is almost always the quarterback (-305 QB to win MVP) from the winning team. Now, that’s certainly not a lock, but when the QBs are high profile and as talented as Patrick Mahomes and Tom Brady are, it’s certainly more likely than not.
So, if you like the Chiefs to win, but want to get better odds than -167, you might want to bet on Patrick Mahomes to win the MVP (+100). This implies that there’s an 80% chance Mahomes wins the MVP when the Chiefs win. There’s always a risk because Tyreek Hill (+1200) or Travis Kelce (+1300) could take over a game, but if you like the Chiefs, here’s a way for you to get better odds.
As for the Buccaneers, you can get them at +145 to win the game or bet on Tom Brady to win the MVP at +210.
I would never suggest this if the QBs weren’t such high profile stars. The MVP is more likely to go to some random dude when the perception is that the QB is just part of the team and not the main reason why that team is there.
If you’re looking for a longshot on Tampa Bay, how about linebackers Shaquil Barrett +(5000) or Jason Pierre-Paul (+7000) to win the MVP. They combined for five sacks in the NFC Championship Game and if the Buccaneers are going to win Super Bowl LV, it’ll probably be because they were able to get a pass rush and disrupt that Chiefs offense.
For Kansas City, Tyreek Hill had 13 receptions, 269 yards receiving and 3 touchdowns the last time these two faced off. He’s at +1200. Tyrann Mathieu (+4000) has six interceptions this season and a nose for the big play when playing under the bright lights.
By the way, if you’re not sure who is going to win the game, but you’re confident that a QB will win the MVP award, you can bet on that at -305. If you’re correct 76% of the time, you make a profit on that bet.
Some fun interesting bets to consider:
- Buccaneers to Score in Both Halves: Yes (-3335), No (+950).
Now, you’re not going to get a good price on this one, but do we think there’s a chance that Brady and company get shut out in a half? You can bet on them scoring in each half at -3335 or if you think they could get shutout, +950 is the price.
- Either Team to Convert Two-Point Conversion: Yes (+230), No (-305)
Yes is at +230 and I kinda like it. Now, first, we need a team to attempt a two-point conversion and then we need it to be successful hence the reason we’re getting a good price. Neither the Buccaneers or the Chiefs attempt the 2 point conversion very often (each at only .2 per game), The league wide conversion rate is just a tad under 50% but I’m willing to bet these offenses will convert at a slightly higher rate. I’m also betting that these teams might be a bit more aggressive. It is the Super Bowl after all.
- Any Ruling on the Field Overturned By a Coaches Challenge: Yes (+120), No (-150)
I’m leaning “no” on this one. While the line is correct with regards to how often a ruling is overturned, this is the Big game. And while we’re all guilty of being critical of the referees normally, the big game brings the best officiating crew. Notice the wording is that it needs to be a coaches challenge as opposed to the plays that are reviewed automatically. I say NO!
I’ll be updating this blog over the next week or so as the game grows nearer.
