Super Bowl LV Betting Preview
The kickoff of Super Bowl LV is scheduled for Sunday at 6:30 pm ET. The game will be played in Tampa, Fla., inside Raymond James Stadium.
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Kansas City Chiefs will face off in Super Bowl LV. This is a rematch of Week 12 when the Chiefs bested the Buccaneers, 27-24.
The Chiefs enter Super Bowl LV as a three-point favorite over the Buccaneers. Kansas City is -165 to win, while Tampa Bay is +145 to pull off the upset. The over/under has been set at 56 points.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers Preview
The Buccaneers couldn’t be hotter entering Super Bowl LV. The team has won seven games in a row. Tampa Bay defeated Washington and New Orleans in the Wild Card and divisional rounds, respectively.
Tampa Bay then went on the road and took down the Green Bay Packers, who were the top seed in the NFC. The Buccaneers did not play their best game against Green Bay, but they found a way to win.
Tom Brady threw three interceptions against Green Bay, but he made the big throws when necessary. The Packers were unable to recover after their slow start in the NFC Championship Game.
Our AFC Championship Game betting preview didn’t go as planned. Take a look and see.
Kansas City Chiefs Preview
The Chiefs cruised to victory in the AFC Championship Game over the Buffalo Bills. The Chiefs defeated the Bills 38-24. Patrick Mahomes played in this game with turf toe, but the reigning Super Bowl MVP was still spectacular.
Mahomes completed 29-of-38 passes for 325 yards with three touchdowns. With two weeks between games, Mahomes should be totally recovered from his injury.
Kansas City was the best team in football this year at 14-2. The Chiefs will play for their second straight Super Bowl title on Sunday.

Super Bowl LV Picks
When the Chiefs and Buccaneers met in Week 12, Tampa Bay covered the 3.5-point line that Kansas City was favored by. The game went under 56 points. I believe the Super Bowl will follow this same trajectory.
I like the Buccaneers at +3. It’s very tough to beat a team twice in one season.
Tampa Bay has not lost since this matchup with the Chiefs. I think the Buccaneers at +3 is a great bet. Some sportsbooks have the Buccaneers listed at +3.5.
If you can find this line, bet Tampa Bay at +3.5. This way, the Buccaneers could be within a field goal, and they would still cover. On the moneyline, I think the Buccaneers will prevail.
Tampa Bay is playing really good football. The Chiefs are beat up on the offensive line, which massively helps Tampa Bay.
Left tackle Eric Fisher will not play because of an Achilles injury. This should open up Devin White, Jason Pierre-Paul, and Shaquil Barrett to torment Mahomes.
If the secondary can limit Tyreek Hill and tackle Travis Kelce, I like the Buccaneers straight up on Sunday. These teams are a combined 20-17 against the over in 2020.
However, the last time these two franchises met, the game went under. The total amount of points scored in Super Bowl LV will be similar to Week 12.
I’m taking the Buccaneers moneyline, Buccaneers +3 and under 56 points.
