Super Bowl 55 Odds in 2021: Chiefs and Buccaneers The Last Two Remaining

After 20+ weeks of an abnormal year, we have our Super Bowl matchup. Tom Brady has reached his tenth Super Bowl, while Patrick Mahomes is now in his second in a row. Heading into last weekend, the Packers and Chiefs were the favorites but it was Tampa Bay who moved on in that NFC Championship matchup. The total is very high for a Super Bowl, but with these offenses and how overs have hit this season, it makes a lot of sense. Kansas City is field goal favorites and I would have been surprised to see anything else. The odds on this page are from DraftKings Sportsbook. We will be updating this page throughout the year and also have our real-time NFL Super Bowl Odds page where you can shop lines from the top US Sportsbooks.

Super Bowl Moneyline

kansas city chiefsNow that we are down to a final two, we are strictly betting on the odds of this game alone. All the value of a Super Bowl winner is out the window. The Chiefs were +650 to win the Super Bowl before the season and the Buccaneers were +1200. Now we are looking at the Chiefs as -175 favorites and the Buccaneers as +145 underdogs. The Chiefs played the Buccaneers earlier this season and won 27-24 and the lines were very similar. Kansas City has been favorable in terms of a moneyline, given they are 16-2 in all games this season. Tampa is 14-5 in all games this season. Now the moneyline actually is a decent value on the Chiefs, given they are now -103 to cover a -3.5 spread.

Super Bowl Spread

Kansas City struggled to cover this season going 7-10-1 and it had a lot to do with them not putting teams away or the defense not playing up to par as we know they can. However, they have been lights out in the postseason beating the Bills and covering but did fail to cover against the Browns. They failed to cover against the Buccaneers last time out, where they were -3.5 favorites. Public money is coming in on the Chiefs to cover at a heavy rate, and that is to be expected. Tampa was 11-8 ATS this season and while they are loaded with playmakers, the Chiefs are still the better team here and the public views them as such.

Super Bowl Total

Back when the Chiefs and Buccaneers played earlier this season the total was set at 56 and the under hit. It was a 27-24 game, so not off by that much. The over has been pretty pedestrian for both sides this season. The Chiefs have hit the over in just nine of their 18 games this season, while the Buccaneers have hit the over 11 times in 19. The two teams have averaged a combined 59 points per game this season and over six yards per play. There will be plenty of playmakers in this one but defenses have stepped up for both sides in the postseason and especially dialing up the blitz.
