Super Bowl 55 Parlay Picks
Rob Hansen, Content Coordinator (@Mookie_45)
There once was a quarterback named Tom,
Who was old—like Gronkowski's mom.
The Chiefs seem like a bit much,
But never bet against Brady in the clutch.
Load up on the Bucs this Sunday and remain calm.
PICK: Tampa Bay moneyline (+145), Brady longest completion Over 39.5 yards (-120), Brady MVP (+185) (+1,180)
Andrew Caley, Senior Editor (@Covers_Caley) ***2020 Champion***
The Champ is back where he belongs – The Super Bowl. And The Champ is backing the Champs in what should be a high scoring Big Game. So, give me the Chiefs ATS, the Over, Patrick Mahomes to throw a bunch of bombs, and Travis Kelce to keep being a catching machine. Don't bother with parlays from these other jabronis, stick with the Champ and cash one more time!
PICK: Four-play parlay (Chiefs -3, Over 56, Patrick Mahomes Over 2.5 TDs, Travis Kelce Over 8.5 Receptions) +995

I’m going to keep this short and sweet for this one. Tampa Bay is playing unreal football right now and that should bring the best out of Kansas City. I’m backing them to cover the 3.5 points and for this game to go Over.
For the last leg of this prop, I’m going with a Tavis Kelce anytime TD. In his last 10 games, Kelce has scored a TD in 7 of them, including 2 vs Buffalo 2 weeks ago.
PICK: KC -3.5, KC/TB Over 56, Travis Kelce anytime TD (+531)

Our last staff parlay picks of the season, happening on the biggest game of the year—how can we not make a true spectacle with our picks!
Travis Kelce has been on an absolute tear all year and has turned it up in the playoffs. He’s going to be a nightmare for Tampa from start to finish. The Chiefs’ other dynamic pass catcher, Tyreek Hill, is not to be outdone though. “Cheetah” torched the Bucs in week 12 and I expect him to go over the top on Tampa’s CBs again on Sunday.
On the flip side, all the hype is on Brady and Tampa’s passing attack, but don’t count out Playoff Lenny showing up in the biggest game of his career.
Wait? What? I should pick a winner for the game too? Well then, Chiefs it is.
PICK: Travis Kelce score 1st half + 2nd half TD, Tyreek Hill longest reception Over 27.5 yards, Leonard Fournette Over 46.5 rushing yards, Kansas City -3 (+3,268)
AJ Salah, Publishing Editor (@Salas42_)
Gonna keep this brief so I can get back to prepping my smoked gouda-chorizo jalapeno poppers.
The Bucs seem to have all the momentum here, and betting against Brady in the Super Bowl would feel like sacrilege. Also feeling an Over, and for Leonard Fournette to find the endzone at plus money.
Let's find a win and freeroll this weekend's food budget!
PICK: Tampa Bay +3.5, Over 56, Leonard Fournette anytime touchdown (+605)

It wouldn’t be the Big Game without taking a big swing with a parlay, so we’re tying together a few of my favorite bets for Super Bowl LV in hopes of a huge payday (or at least enough to cover my chicken wings/beer costs from the NFL season). I’m grabbing the half-point hook on Tampa +3.5 and love the Over even more now that the total is ticking down to 56 points. To make things a little spicier, I’m tossing in a couple plus-money props: “Yes” on 2-point conversion attempt and Bucs TE Cameron Brate to find the end zone.
PICK: Tampa Bay +3.5, Over 56, “Yes” 2-point conversion attempts, Cameron Brate TD score anytime (+3,024)
Brandon DuBreuil, Content Manager (@CoversBD)
I just don’t understand the love for the Under on this game. Perhaps because the total landed on 51 back in Week 12? Well, there were 960 yards of total offense in that game, meaning there should have been a lot more than 51 scored — and I expect a lot more to be scored this time around. So, let’s parlay the Over with a few touchdown scorers.
PICK: Over 56, Travis Kelce anytime TD, Tyreek Hill anytime TD, Mike Evans anytime TD, Mecole Hardman anytime TD (+3,211)
Patrick Everson, Senior Writer (@Covers_Vegas)
I’ve had awful results all season long on these, as the dictionary-definition example of why you shouldn’t bet parlays. But in the spirit of good fun for Super Bowl Sunday, let me offer up the following monetary sacrifice:
- Chiefs alternate point spread -7.5. I just think that if the game is decided by a larger margin, it’ll be Kansas City doing that deciding. But then, I’ve thought a lot of things this season, and we’ve seen how that’s worked out.
- Over 2.5 players to throw a pass. Just give me one gadget play, and we’re there. That’s all I need, as Navin Johnson said in “The Jerk.”
- Over 3 first-half touchdowns. This opened Over +115 at The SuperBook, and a sharper player I know loved it. I didn’t get in at as good a price, but it’s still at 3, which beats 3.5. And of course, the fine print: Your mileage may vary. Past performance is likely a guarantee of future results. So follow/fade accordingly. Happy Super Bowl!
PICK: Kansas City alternate point spread -7.5, Over 2.5 players to throw a pass, Over 3 first-half touchdowns (+1,282)
