Super Bowl Betting Tips:

After 284 games in the regular season and the playoffs, we are down to two teams to fight it out to win Super Bowl LVIII. 

The San Francisco 49ers are looking to win their sixth Super Bowl, while the Kansas City Chiefs can win a fourth Vince Lombardi Trophy in Las Vegas on Sunday. 

Betting sites have the 49ers as favourites to win at the Allegiant Stadium on Sunday. 

There are hundreds of other markets available for the game including handicap, moneyline, touchdown scorers, to Super Bowl MVP and how long the National Anthem will take.

There’s such a wide selection of odds and lines that you might not know where to start.

That’s why we’re going to take a look at some of the in-game and off-the-field unique betting opportunities offered for the biggest game of the season...

What Is The Super Bowl?

Played every year since 1967, the Super Bowl is the clash between the winner of the National Football Conference and the American Football Conference to decide the champion team of the NFL.

The New England Patriots have played in the most Super Bowls (11), winning six of them, all since 2001. Along with the Pittsburgh Steelers, they share the record for the most league titles.

The Kansas City Chiefs are the defending champions and they are looking to be the first team since the 2004 Patriots to win back-to-back Super Bowls. 

The 49ers have revenge on their mind after losing Super Bowl LIV by 11 points to the Chiefs four years ago, despite leading by 10 points with just over six minutes to play. 

Will It Be The 49ers Or Chiefs Celebrating?

Leading NFL betting sites have every market covered as the Chiefs and 49ers battle it out.

The 49ers are slight favourites, but the Chiefs have thrived on being the underdogs in their last two playoff games at Buffalo and Baltimore. 

Like most games, this one could come do to the performances of the two quarterbacks and which one looks after the ball the best.

Patrick Mahomes

Patrick Mahomes is at his best in big games as he has proved by leading the Chiefs to their fourth Super Bowl appearance in five seasons. 

The experience of having played in three Super Bowls is certainly an advantage for Mahomes and the AFC champions.

For Brock Purdy, this is his first trip to the Super Bowl in his fairytale career. Selected 262nd and last in the 2022 Draft, Purdy is 24-6 as the 49ers starting quarterback. 

Mahomes and the Chiefs enjoy proving people wrong and they will look to do so again on Sunday night.

Any time the Chiefs can be backed at 21/20 to win a Super Bowl, the opportunity should be taken. 

Super Bowl LVIII Is Taylor-Made For Kelce

If Mahomes has a good game statistically, then there is a very good chance tight end Travis Kelce will put up big numbers too. 

In his previous three Super Bowls, Kelce has figures of 22 catches for 257 yards and two touchdowns, and he is among the favourites on betting apps to be named MVP.

With his girlfriend Taylor Swift set to be watching on in the Allegiant Stadium, the stage is set for Kelce to have another big game. 

In this season's playoff run, Kelce has similar figures - 23 catches for 259 yards and three touchdowns. 

When Mahomes is in trouble, Kelce almost always finds space for his quarterback to find him and keep a drive alive.

Kelce had 11 catches as the Chiefs beat the Ravens in the AFC Conference Championship game and over 8.5 catches at 9/4 with BetMGM cannot be ignored.

Kelce can also be backed at 17/2 to be the first touchdown scorer. 49ers running back Christian McCaffrey is favourite at 4/1 to find the end zone first on Sunday.

McCaffrey has scored 25 touchdowns this season, including four in his two playoffs games. 

Running back Isiah Pacheco is Chiefs favourite at 13/2 to find the end zone first.

Purdy's Legs Can Help 49ers Out

Purdy will be tired of hearing he is not as good as Mahomes when it comes to leading their respective offenses. 

But for 60 minutes on Sunday, that does not matter. Purdy has a chance to write his name in Super Bowl history. 

Purdy has plenty of weapons around him to help him move the chains and find the end zone. 

He needs to know, he doesn't need to win the game on his own by throwing for 350 yards and four touchdowns.

Of course, that will help, but he can help lead San Francisco to their sixth Super Bowl success by playing sensibly. 

In the 49ers' two playoffs games, Purdy ran the ball 11 times for 62 yards, and crucially five first downs.

Averaging 31 yards in his last two games, Purdy is 29/10 with Bet365 to rush for 25 yards or more against the Chiefs, who have allowed opposition quarterbacks to run for 151 yards in their three playoff games.
