Super Bowl Betting In Ireland

Introduction to the Super Bowl

The Super Bowl is an annual event that determines the National Football League’s champion for each given season. Before the term “Super Bowl” was created, the American Football League and the National Football League would battle it out for supremacy in a game previously known as the AFL-NFL World Championship. The term “Super Bowl” was coined as part of the AFL-NFL merger in 1970. After the merger was complete, each league was separated into different conferences. The winners of the AFC (formally known as the AFL) and the NFC (formally the NFL) meet up on Super Bowl Sunday to determine the NFL Champion for each season.

Super Bowl 2021 Predictions

Who is the Super Bowl LV Favorite?

Current Super Bowl odds place defending champions Kansas City Chiefs (3/5) as the firm favorites to become Super Bowl 2021 champions. Tampa Bay Buccaneers are clear outsiders (133/100) but that leaves some attractive options away from the standard two-way bet.

Who Will Play in Super Bowl 2021?

Kansas City Chiefs Vs Tampa Bay Buccaneers. And so it comes down to a shoot-out between two of the most iconic quarterbacks in the game: young gun Patrick Mahomes versus the old master himself Tom Brady. While nobody is surprised Mahomes and the Chiefs are back to defend the crown they won a year ago, to see the 43-year-old Brady lead Tampa to their first Superbowl appearance in 18 years in his first season with the franchise is a football fairytale. It’s all set for one of the most intriguing finals in years, although Mahomes and the Chiefs are firm favorites, and for good reason.

The Chiefs started the season as many people’s tip for the title and that confidence proved correct as the team went 14-2 in the regular season. In contrast, no one expected the Buccaneers to get this far, even with the addition of arguably the greatest quarterback the league has ever seen to the team’s roster. But Tom Brady has done what Tom Brady does, and now the team stand on the brink of a first title in 18 years. Brady will run out in his tenth Super Bowl in search of his seventh ring – both records. But it is the Chiefs that remain heavy favorites.

Who Has a Chance to Shock the World?

Kansas City Chiefs:
It would hardly be a shock if the Chiefs reclaim a title they won a year ago. In Patrick Mahomes the franchise possess the closest there is to another Tom Brady. The reigning Super Bowl MVP and league MVP from 2019 is probably the hottest property in the NFL right now, and threw three touchdown passes in his team’s AFC Championship win over Buffalo Bills. And that was all after the 25-year old recovered from a concussion he received in the playoff victory over Cleveland the week before. But the job is not yet done for Mahomes and the Chiefs. “When we went into the season we weren’t talking about going to the Super Bowl, we were talking about winning it again,” Mahomes said.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers:
The Buccaneers getting this far has certainly shocked the world. But the fact that Tom Brady has, even at the age of 43, proved himself to once again be what many suspect him to be – the NFL’s GOAT – has not. And Mahomes is relishing his chance to take down the master. “Being able to go up against one of the greatest if not the greatest quarterback of all time, it’s going to be a great experience for me,” the Chiefs quarterback said of Brady. But having not been to the Super Bowl since 2002 and not made the post-season since 2007, no one expected this of the Bucs – Brady or no Brady.

Betting on Super Bowl 2021 - How to Get Started

Choose the Market

Outright Markets – Outright Markets are when you place a bet on the winner of an entire league or competition instead of a single matchup. These bets can be placed before the season starts and remain open through the completion of the Super Bowl.

Prop Bets – Prop Bets or Proposition Bets are a bet placed on an individual player or event. Prop Bets can be placed on anything from how many touchdowns a specific player will score, to whether the coin flip will result in heads or tails.
Example: Which Conference will produce the winning team – AFC or NFC?

Other Markets – Other betting markets such as over/under, point spread, and outright winners and more, will be available the closer we get to the kick-off of the big game.

Do Your Research

Don’t go into a bet blind. Before putting your money down on something, make sure to do your research. The sports world is ever-changing, lines and predictions are constantly on the move. Make sure to continuously check the odds, markets, and bookmakers. Have a good understanding of what you are betting on. For instance, visiting sites with Super Bowl predictions and Super Bowl tips will help further your knowledge on specific Super Bowl betting lines or prop bets to heighten your chances at a more probable and lucrative payout.

Popular Betting Markets

Outright Winner – The winner of an entire competition rather than a single event. In this case, you would place your bet for who you predict to win Super Bowl 2021.

Point Spread – The point spread is a figure set by oddsmakers to provide an advantage/disadvantage based on a margin of victory/defeat for a given team. The team designated as the “favorite” (likely to win), will be given a negative point spread. This means they would have to win the game by the given points to earn you a payout. The “underdog” is given a positive point spread. Meaning the team can lose a game, but as long as it is within the given positive point spread, they would still be considered winners against the spread.

Example 1: Seattle Seahawks (+4) vs. Green Bay Packers (-4)

The Packers enter the game as 4-point favourites, meaning they would have to win the game by more than four points to win the bet. The Seahawks are rated as 4-point underdogs, meaning they could either win or lose the game, but by under four points to win the bet. For instance, let’s say the Packers defeat the Seahawks 20-17. The Packers win the game, but the Seahawks win the bet due to not losing by more than four points – they have effectively “covered the spread.”

Example 2: Total (Over/Under – 40 points)

The total is a marker set by oddsmakers to determine the combination of points scored by both teams. You can place your bet on whether you believe the total will be over or under the set total. In this scenario the Packers win 20-17, giving a total of just 37 points scored between the two teams. Since 37 is less than 40, the game went UNDER.

About the Super Bowl

The winner of the Super Bowl is awarded the Lombardi trophy. The trophy is named in honor of Hall of Fame coach Vince Lombardi, who led the Green Bay Packers to victories in the first two inaugural Super Bowl games ever played. The Super Bowl takes place at the culmination of the NFL football season for the calendar year prior. Super Bowl Sunday has blossomed into something of an unofficial national holiday, becoming hands down, one of the biggest events in pro sports.

Super Bowl LV

Super Bowl 55, the 51st modern-era NFL Championship game, will occur on February 7, 2021, to determine the league champion for the 2020 NFL season. Super Bowl LIV will take place at the Raymond James Stadium, Tampa Bay, Florida, the first time one of the teams involved (the Buccaneers) will be playing in their home stadium.

The Super Bowl half-time show, one of the biggest events of the year, should once again be a smash hit. It has been confirmed that Canadian superstar the Weeknd will perform, following in the footsteps of the likes of Justin Timberlake, Michael Jackson, Lady Gaga, and Beyonce. The show is one of the biggest US TV spectacles of the year: A 30-second half-time commercial spot is expected to cost companies $5.6 million.

The half-time show has historically provided numerous moments of controversy, most famously when Timberlake ‘accidently’ exposed Janet Jackson’s breast in the 2004 edition. The Federal Communications Commission charged broadcaster CBS with indecency and fined them $550,000 for the incident.

Beyonce’s appearance alongside Coldplay and Bruno Mars also attracted plenty of attention as she offered her support to the Black Lives Matter movement. She wore a bullet belt outfit to highlight the killing of black men by police in America – a move that New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani described as ‘outrageous’.

This year’s game – and the half-time show – will be played in front of only 22,000 spectators in the Raymond James Stadium due to Covid restrictions.
