Super Bowl LVI Betting Odds - Football Lines

Super Bowl Betting Odds

Attention has already turned ahead to the 2021 NFL season and Super Bowl LVI. At the onset, gamblers are in a forgiving mood towards the Kansas City Chiefs. Despite getting beaten badly by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers 31-9 as 3-point chalks, the public has picked the Chiefs to make it back to a third consecutive Super Bowl appearance and winning the game itself. The Green Bay Packers and Tampa Bay Buccaneers are the next two gambling preferences. Usually, when gamblers look into the future for their Super Bowl selections, they base their wagers on the past. That is certainly the case here.

Super Bowl LV Recap

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers were the first-ever team to play a Super Bowl on their home field. Of course, the downside of that was COVID-19 forced a limited crowd at Raymond James Stadium. The CBS announcing tandem of Jim Nantz and Tony Romo expected an instant classic. Instead, they and the national TV audience witnessed one of the most dominant Super Bowl history performances.

The Kansas City offense, led by quarterback Patrick Mahomes, was touted as unstoppable. Yet Tampa Bay suffocated the Chiefs attack. Kansas City was incredibly shut out of the end zone, instead settling for three field goals. Mahomes was under intense Tampa Bay pressure all game as his offensive line was rendered helpless against the Buccaneers. Tampa intercepted Mahomes twice and limited him to 26/49 passing for a pedestrian 270 yards. In comparison, Tom Brady was 21/29 for 201 yards and three touchdowns in the win. Brady was named the game’s MVP, but the reality is that the entire Tampa Bay defense could share that honor.

Super Bowl LVI

The Super Bowl for the 2021 NFL season will be the 56th in history. SOFI Stadium in the Los Angeles suburb of Inglewood, California, will be the venue. SOFI Stadium is home to the Los Angeles Rams and Los Angeles Chargers and opened in the 2020 season, albeit with no fans allowed in the venue. Hopes are high that sellout crowds will enjoy this new and unique structure for the 2021 NFL season and Super Bowl LVI. It will be NBC’s turn in the rotation to broadcast the event. The popular team of Al Michaels and Chris Collinsworth are expected to call the action.

Looking Ahead to Super Bowl LVI

The Kansas City Chiefs were exposed in the Super Bowl as a team that lacked sufficient structure and balance. Kansas City’s defense paled in comparison to Tampa Bay’s. Tom Brady and the Bucs probed the Chiefs defense throughout the day for weaknesses they found after losing to KC last November. Kansas City is the Super Bowl LVI futures favorite based on Mahomes and having played in the previous two Super Sundays. That has nothing to do with the need for the Chiefs to improve their lineup in the offseason.

The Green Bay Packers were the top seed in the NFC and are much more popular with the masses than Tampa Bay. That is why the Pack is a second choice to win Super Bowl LVI. But Green Bay, like Kansas City, was exposed by the Buccaneers in the NFC Championship Game. The Packer defense, while improved from 2019, was nowhere near championship caliber. And Aaron Rodgers did not have an MVP performance against Tampa Bay, calling into question his ability to carry a Super Sunday team.

Finally, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers could make the most sense of the top tier favorites. Tampa Bay showed all that defense still matters in this score-happy era of pro football. In fact, the Bucs played the best version of complementary football of any team in the final two months of the 2020-21 season.
