American football betting action is coming to a close with the Super Bowl LV and what a way to end this 2020-21 season with a superb matchup featuring the best football player over the past 20 years and his possible heir apparent. NFC champions, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers will meet their AFC counterparts, the Kansas City Chiefs. It will happen in a one-off showdown on who is the best National Football League team this season.
Among the sidelights of this big event is the proposition bets. Any bettor must take advantage of to earn tons of money. Prop bets such as ‘’Will there be a safety?’’ or ‘’How long will the national anthem last?’’ has been a part of the Super Bowl LV betting scene over the past few years. First, let’s take a look at some basic information that we should take note of.
Chiefs vs. Buccaneers Betting Information
Kansas City Chiefs vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers CashBet Betting Lines
Proposition bets, or prop bets, give diehard NFL viewers and betting fanatics some spice to an already exciting Super Bowl matchup between the best of the American Football Conference and the top team in the National Football Conference. Guessing the prop right will give you cash just before the end of the encounter. There are hundreds of props that you can choose from but here are some of the popular prop bets that have come up before the Super Bowl LV betting and their current odds.
Will Bucs WR Mike Evans score a TD?
Evans has become Brady’s scoring wizard when Tampa Bay needs a touchdown, especially when the Bucs are inside the 20-yard line. During the regular season, the wide receiver scored a TD in nine out of 19 opportunities that Brady decided to release the ball toward Evans’ direction. In a loaded receiving corps composed of Chris Godwin, Rob Gronkowski, Antonio Brown, and Cameron Brate, Evans’ elusiveness with the defense counts as an advantage.
Overall, Evans caught 70 passes for 1,006 yards and 13 TDs, nearly doubling the production of Gronkowski and Godwin. With the excellent capability of both teams to fling the football within the red zone betting for a wide receiver TD in Super Bowl LV seems to be easy. Opening odds suggest a +120 for Evans, who has received a TD in the past two games, to score anew in the grandest stage. Super Bowl simulation games also favor Evans to score a TD with a 52% frequency rate.
Tom Brady Goes Over/Under 290.5 Passing Yards
The moneyline for Brady going under 290.5 passing yards is -110 and it’s just the same as going over the 290.5-yard mark. Over the past two games, he has passed a combined 479 pass yards. He had 199 against the New Orleans Saints in the divisional playoffs and had a slight uptick of 280 against the Green Bay Packers in the AFC Championship. But there is a possibility that the Buccaneers quarterback will be vintage Tom like he did when the two teams met in Week 12 action. Brady passed for 345 yards against the Chiefs in a 24-27 defeat.
Will Mahomes Score the First TD?
The possibility that a quarterback would score the first touchdown is also a side bet with the propensity of Kansas City signal-caller Patrick Mahomes to perform such duty to invigorate the team’s spirit early on. Opening odds give Mahomes a 16-1 chance to open the Super Bowl LV floodgates with a TD. So look out, pro-Mahomes betting fans and those who want to earn early income during the game.
Will There Be a Missed Extra Point?
According to NFL online betting picks and parlays, a missed extra point is +250 compared to a -300 for a ‘’no.’’ Over the past six years, kickers have successfully connected 93.8% of their extra-point attempts during the regular season since the distance on extra points was pushed back in 2015. In the playoffs, it slightly improved to 94.7%. However, the two kickers who will battle in Super Bowl LV are ranked low in terms of extra point connections with Tampa Bay’s Ryan Succop managing just 92% of converted extra points while Kansas City kicker Harrison Butker is worse with a 90% success rate. Betting lines suggest a +250 ML for a “yes” while a “no” merits a -300 ML.
Will the Buccaneers-Chiefs Showdown Go to OT?
Over the past 19 years, there is an 11% chance that a postseason game needed an extension to decide on who will win and make it to the next round. It is also interesting to note that only one Super Bowl LV betting game has gone into overtime over the past 18 seasons. Betting odds suggest it is a longshot with a +575 line for those who will pick ‘’yes’’ and -850 for a ‘’no.’’
