The Super Bowl is finally here. This evening from Miami, the Kansas City Chiefs and San Francisco 49ers will play the single most-watched annual sporting event in the world.
Of course, that means big money at the sportsbooks. This year, the spread has held at around Chiefs -1.5 across the board at most legal online books across the US. However, there’s more to this game than the point spread.
The Super Bowl is like Christmas for prop bettors. So much money goes into the game’s player props, team props, and even the result of the coin toss. And with increasing competition between operators to attract bettors, the bonuses and promotions available to you — the bettor — are better than ever.
In this article we point out the very best odds boosts available on Super Bowl Sunday to help you decide where to put your money on Super Bowl 54.
Best Super Bowl odds boosts 2020
It’s been fun to see some of the ideas DraftKings has rolled out this season. For the big game, they’ve even got a contest for prop bets: each $10 bet is a chance for a $200K prize pool, while every $50 bet earns a $10 free bet.
A lot of attention has been paid online to the handle on the coin toss. DK has turned that into a three-leg parlay for each team to win and the under of 54.5 to hit. Those prices have been boosted to +650 for the Chiefs and +700 on the Niners.
The young QBs in the game are also on the prop board. For Jimmy G to throw over 2.5 TDs, that’s up to +315, while for him to throw for less than 100 yards is +1500. For Patrick Mahomes, over 1.5 INTs is boosted to +700.
Think Tyreek Hill will get the game’s first TD? That’s now up to +850 odds. For both stars tight ends to score (George Kittle and Travis Kelce), that’s up to +400.
The DFS powerhouse has become top dog in NJ and PA for sports betting. For the Big Game, they’re working for players expecting a shootout.
Twenty-eight players and both defensive/special teams units are eligible for an anytime touchdown bet. Put $25 or more on any of those props, and FanDuel will pay out $1 for every point that team scores, up to $25.
The lowest prices are on feature backs like Raheem Mostert (-140) and Damien Williams (-130). Take a look at the menu, and take a shot.
Your home for the Super Bowl LIV broadcast could also be your home for great game action. This is a fairly novel concept in the US, but FoxBet has been churning out odds boosts all season.
The Fox personalities each came up with two prop boosts. The main ones are fairly straightforward like Jimmy G over 19.5 pass completions at +100, or Mahomes to rush for a score in a win to +650.
There’s another level called Memory Lane bets where things get interesting. Hall of Fame tight end Shannon Sharpe has his own prop bet on Kelce and Kittle to score (also +400). A TD thrown by a non-QB (Philly Special anyone) is worth +1000. For San Fran to lead at the half and KC to come back and win, that’s bumped up to +700.
There are more than a dozen odds boosts on the board at FOX Bet. It’s certainly worth taking a look.
Aussies like football, I think. They make pretty good punters — like the players, not the slang for bettors. PointsBet makes some pretty good odds boosts.
There are over 20 options for odds boosts for the Big Game on PointsBet. They focus on player totals for the big stars of the game.
Patrick Mahomes rushing and throwing for a touchdown will get +350. A Deebo Samuel TD for the Niners is worth +170, while Kittle scoring is up to +155.
For KC’s speedy wideouts, Tyreek Hill is +100 to collect 80 or more receiving yards and +105 to reach the endzone. Sammy Watkins is +215 to eclipse 75 receiving yards and +270 to score.
BetMGM has done really well to get players in the door this year with the “Bet $1, Win $200” offers to build bankrolls. For the Super Bowl, players can make some of that money grow.
BetMGM has the most audacious odds boosts across the board for this game. If you like the Niners to win, they’re worth +200 for bets $20 and under.
The site also has done well to partner with other brands for promotional pricing. Barstool Sports has odds boosts for a fullback TD (Anthony Sherman or Kyle Juszcyck are worth +600 to score), a lineman TD (offensive or defensive linemen can get you +900), and a 70-yard TD (up to +350). Buffalo Wild Wings has overtime bumped up to +1400.
