- The Chiefs closed on the Super Bowl line as three-point favorites over the Buccaneers.
- The first half started out with Patrick Mahomes unable to do much damage.
- Props and odds are still available on the online sportsbooks.
TAMPA, Fla. - Super Bowl LV is underway, and while The Weeknd performs in the Super Bowl LV halftime show, many bettors will be flocking to the online sportsbooks to wager on the second half.
The second half of the game features many of the same props as the first half, so let’s look at some ways to double down and perhaps hedge on Super Bowl bets made before the game.
First things first, here’s what the opening spread for the game was:
Super Bowl LV Opening Line
- Kansas City Chiefs -155
- Tampa Bay Buccaneers +135
And here’s what it looks like now after the Super Bowl second half betting line sees the Chiefs as the favorite by 7.5 points.
Live Super Bowl LV Moneyline At Halftime
- Kansas City Chiefs +225
- Tampa Bay Buccaneers -300
Patrick Mahomes had a slow opening to the game, and here’s what his odds for yardage looked like before the game:
Patrick Mahomes Passing Yards
- Over 331 -125
- Over 341 -111
- Over 351 +100
Mahomes didn’t come close to that in the first half, but one must remember the last time Tom Brady matched up against Patrick Mahomes in the playoffs.
This was in the AFC Championship game two years ago, and Mahomes was fully shut down in the first half only to explode in the second half.
With that in mind, bettors could take a look at live Super Bowl lines at online sportsbooks on Mahomes’ second-half yards - it’s hard to keep him down for long.
