Super Bowl LV Betting: Buccaneers Win & Cover


What a performance from Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, who dominated Kansas City en route to a 31-9 victory at Super Bowl 55. The Bucs cashed in as a 3-point underdog and at about +140 on the moneyline, while the game stayed well under the total of 55.5.

The Super Bowl is the single most bet-on event in the North American sporting calendar and wagering on the Big Game is becoming more and more popular each year. A whopping 26 million Americans wagered approximately $6.8 billion on Super Bowl LIV last year and you can safely assume that these numbers will be even bigger in 2021 as more states legalize sports betting.
