One team is known for its high-scoring offense while the other is know for having a shutdown defense of the highest order. Will the high-scoring Kansas City Chiefs put a ton of points on the board to send the final Super Bowl 54 score soaring over the 54-point total or will the San Francisco 49ers’ stout defense keep the game’s final score under the O/U total? If you’re looking for some expert insight into how to bet the Super Bowl LIV Over/Under total, then look no further.
How to Bet the Super Bowl LIV Over/Under
- Super Bowl LIV Over/Under Total: -54
Kansas City Chiefs Over/Under Trends
The Chiefs are Super Bowl 54 favorites mostly because they can put points on the board in their collective sleep. The Over is 7-2 in Kansas City’s last 9 games against a team with a winning record and that means the Over is looking good as they get st to face San Francisco. The Over is also a consistent 10-4 in the Chiefs last 14 games after racking up more than 350 yards of total offense in their previous game and 7-2 in their last nine games against a team with a winning record.
The Over is also 10-4 in the Chief’s last 14 games after putting up at least 350 yards of total offense in their previous game. The Over is also 5-2-1 in the Chiefs last 8 games after allowing less than 90 yards rushing in their previous game and Kansas City comes into Super Bowl 54 off a fantastic defensive effort that limited ‘runaway train’ league rushing leader Derrick Henry to just 69 yards and once score on 19 carries in the AFC Championship game. Strangely enough, the Under is 4-1 in Kansas City’s last 5 games after racking up more than 250 passing yards in their previous game.
San Francisco 49ers Over/Under Trends
The 49ers might be known for their powerful defense, but Frisco also finished in scoring in the regular season (29.9 ppg) and they’ve scored 64 combined points in two playoff games this postseason. With that said, the Over is 4-0 in Frisco’s last four games after rushing for at least 150 yards in their previous game. The Over is also 3-0-1 in the 49ers’ last four games after putting up more than 350 total yards in their previous game.
That’s not all, there’s even more evidence for an over outcome in Super Bowl LIV. The Over is 4-1-1 in San Francisco’s last six games, 3-1-1 in 49ers last 5 games against a team with a winning record and 8-3-1 in the Niners’ last dozen games after giving up more than 250 passing yards in their previous game. Last, but not least, the Under is 4-1 in San Francisco’s last 5 playoff games, though they haven’t been in the postseason prior to this season since 2013.
Super Bowl Over/Under History
The ‘over/under’ has gone 27-25 in the first 53 Super Bowl matchups. No total was posted on Super Bowl I between the Green Bay Packers and Kansas City Chiefs. A year ago, New England’s 13-3 Super Bowl win over the Los Angeles Rams produced the lowest ‘over/under’ result in Super Bowl history.
The Niners have an elite defense, but Kansas City has scored a whopping 86 points in two playoff games this postseason, including their 35-point effort against a very good Titans defense in the AFC title tilt. Again, Frisco is known for their defense, but they can clearly score the ball as well, having put 64 points on the board in two games this postseason.
Even though I’m not real fond of the high, 54-point O/U total in Super Bowl LIV, all signs are pointing to an Over outcome and I believe that’s just what will happen in Super Bowl 54.
