One of the many ways to bet on Super Bowl 55, comes from the alternate lines, offered to draw the attention of bettors.
Placing a wager on the alternate lines gives Super Bowl bettors a chance to bet on the game using their own points selection which could in some cases provide a better return on a win at sportsbooks.
If you believe an outcome will happen in the Super Bowl, like the Chiefs winning by covering a spread of 12.5-points for example, then the alternate lines represent the best way to put your own spin on a bet. The most important thing about betting on alternate lines is that any line is a good play as long bettors find value in those odds.
Bovada has numerous alternate lines for bettors to select from as there is certainly a wide range of outcomes that could happen.
Alternate Spreads For Super Bowl LV
The game line has the Kansas City Chiefs beating the Tampa Bay Buccaneers by three points. Those odds are juiced at -125 but the alternate lines provide a better return on a Chiefs’ win. When the Chiefs played the Buccaneers in Week 12, Kansas City came out of that game victorious but failed to cover the 3.5-point spread set at sportsbooks.
If the first game reflects the Super Bowl and a tight game is in the cards these alternate lines for Kansas City would be solid plays.
KC Alt Lines: Under A Field Goal
- -2.5 (-145)
- -2 (-150)
- -1 (-165)
On the opposite side, the alternate line with the longest odds for the Kansas City Chiefs is a two-touchdown win ATS at -13.5 points that comes with +255 odds.
The previous two Super Bowls have been decided by 10 points and 11 points. Those alternate lines especially for a Chiefs win bring a nice return for NFL bettors on Sunday.
Chiefs Alt Lines: By Double Digits
- -10 +190
- -10.5 +205
- -11 +225
On the other side, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ longest odds for the alternate spread reside with a 7.5-point win for them that would net a return on +305 odds.
In that Week 12 matchup, the Bucs were able to cover the 3.5 point spread and betting on them to do so again comes with -125 odds. Two out of Tom Brady’s last three Super Bowl victories have been decided by six points or less. The Buccaneers alternate lines for a win at six points or better are intriguing.
TB At Lines: By A Touchdown
- -6 (+250)
- -6.5 (+265)
- -7 (+285)
