FanSided breaks down the five best bets for Super Bowl 55.
The big game is finally here as the Tampa Bay Buccaneers take on the Kansas City Chiefs for the Lombardi Trophy on Sunday. Super Bowl LV promises to be a fun matchup as the greatest quarterback of all time faces off against the likeliest contender to take the crown in the future.
The early odds in this game favor the Chiefs but the best thing about betting the Super Bowl is the various ways you can make money on the game. Let’s take a look at the five best bets for the action, with all lines provided courtesy of the FanDuel Sportsbook.
5. Super Bowl 55 best bets: Rob Gronkowski anytime TD scorer
Let’s kick off the best bets section with a prop on Buccaneers’ tight end Rob Gronkowski. FanDuel has Gronk at +220 to score a touchdown at any point in the game, which would offer a $320 return on a $100 bet.
The Chiefs haven’t been great at covering tight ends this season, giving up ten touchdowns on the year to the position, with seven of those scores coming after the team’s Week 10 bye. Tampa Bay’s plentiful outside weapons should also draw a lot of attention from the Chiefs, leaving room for Tom Brady to operate in the middle of the field with Gronkowski.
Other good values in the anytime TD scorer category on Tampa Bay are Cameron Brate at +260 or Scotty Miller at +380, but Brady’s history with Gronkowski will be meaningful in this game. Lock in this wager early.
