Super Bowl Bet Builder: Tampa Bay on Money Line, Cameron Brate any time TD scorer and First Quarter Points Total to be Under 10.5 points

It’s a close game to call, but Tampa Bay’s rampant defensive line going up against Kansas City’s banged up offensive line could be the key to this game.

Tom Brady is playing in his 10th Super Bowl and this will be a very rare occasion that he starts as underdog. The value is with the Buccaneers and this would be a great start to the Bet Builder.

 

Cameron Brate scored a touchdown in the NFC championship game and I think he can do it again here. He has taken over from Rob Gronkowski as the main receiving tight-end and he is a serious red zone target. Chris Godwin, Mike Evans and possibly Antonio Brown will all need to be covered and Brate could be seeing a lot of one-on-one coverage.

 

Finally, I will be backing the total points in the first quarter to be under 10.5. Brady has never started off fast in any of his previous Super Bowls and I expect both teams to get off to a slow start.

NFL tips: Super Bowl Sunday’s best side market bets from our traders

Travis Kelce receiving yards to be under 98.5 points

Travis Kelce put in a huge performance in the NFC championship game, but I think the line may be too high at 98.5. Kelce doesn’t really break out for huge gains and instead chips away with short and medium range gains. The line for a tight-end is big here and Kelce needs everything to go his way if he is to go over. The value surely has got to be going under in this market.

Total sacks in game to be over 4.5

The Chiefs are missing their left tackle Eric Fisher, and the loss of such a key player makes the sack total in the game to be over 4.5 very appealing. The Bucs have one of the best defensive lines in the league, and Vita Vea and Ndamukong Suh might cause carnage up the middle. That could set up Shaq Barrett and Jason Pierre-Paul for a big game – I can see them getting to Mahomes plenty of times.

Kansas City also have a good defensive line, with Chris Jones and Frank Clark more than capable of getting to Brady so they should help get this bet over the line.

NFL tips: Super Bowl novelty picks for Kansas City v Tampa Bay on Sunday

Tampa Bay team sacks over 2.5

As we’ve discussed, Kansas City have problems along the offensive line while the Bucs defensive line have been superb throughout the playoffs. This is my favourite bet of the two and I can see the Bucs getting constant pressure on Mahomes and exceeding this 2.5 total.

What will happen first in game – sack or TD? Sack

We have a huge variety of bets for the big game and this is one that I really like. There’s the potential for lots of sacks in this game and I can see both these teams bringing the heat early. It is currently a great price for there to be a sack in this game before a touchdown is scored.
