Following Sunday’s NFL conference championships, bettors now know that the NFC’s San Francisco 49ers will face the AFC’s Kansas City Chiefs in Super Bowl LIV.
The game will be played on Sunday, Feb. 2 at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami. Kickoff on FOX is set for 6:30 p.m. and the Chiefs have been opened as slight 1.5-point favorites. The total line for the game has been set at 53.5 points.
The spread and total line are just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to betting on the single-biggest game of the year for online sportsbooks. Everyone brings their A Game to this event with a full board of Super Bowl betting options.
Finding the right online book to bet the game is worth a bit more time and effort to close out the NFL season with a bang. Every book will be taking action on Super Bowl LIV and the spread and total line are likely to remain rather consistent across all the top-ranked betting sites.
Given just how close this year’s matchup is, betting the game straight-up on the moneyline is a very viable option. You can get Kansas City at -125 with the betting odds on the 49ers set at +105.
You can probably find a lower number for the Chiefs if you shop that line and there are a few one-point spreads out there as well.
The main attraction of betting the big game is the extended list of Super Bowl prop bets.
By the time game day rolls around, there will be pages and pages of props covering every single aspect of this game both on and off the field. You should actually formulate a separate betting strategy for Super Bowl LIV props along with a set betting budget.
It is very easy to get carried away since there are two full weeks ahead of this game. However, a carefully thought-out plan can yield a positive return on your investment.
Successfully betting Super Bowl props is all about visualizing the game in your head.
Both of these teams have shown the ability to put quite a few points on the board. They combined for 72 points in the conference championships after San Francisco averaged 29.9 points a game in the regular season closely followed by Kansas City with 28.2 PPG.
If you see Super Bowl LIV turning into a shootout, then check the online books for the best numbers for their scoring props. There are some carry-over similarities with any type of props from one online book to the next. Yet, it is easy to find a number of different variations in the way they are presented along with the actual posted odds.
Individual player prop are another good way to find the best value in the numbers. It is safe to assume that Patrick Mahomes for Kansas City and Jimmy Garoppolo for San Francisco will have the best odds to win Super MVP honors as their team’s starting quarterback.
If you have the Chiefs winning the game, then looking for the best odds for Mahomes makes all the sense in the world given that team’s high-powered passing game. The 49ers take a more balanced approach to moving the ball down the field, so there may be some better value to be found further down the MVP prop list if you are leaning towards San Francisco.
Finding the best online sports betting sites to bet Super Bowl LIV may actually come down to multiple choices. Using more than one online betting outlet to wager on the biggest game of the year could be the best way to cash in.
