3 Reasons to Bet the Under for Super Bowl 57

3 Reasons to Bet the Under for Super Bowl 57

We are now just a matter of days away from Super Bowl 57, which means it’s really time to get down to the business of deciding where your betting dollars are going to go. As is the case with every Super Bowl, there are a multitude of options, not all of which can be considered smart bets. Mainly, though, we are talking about the prop bets here, which we will dove deeper into in another article this week. If you are looking to keep it simple, then the straight up, spread, and point total bets are the way to go. For the purposes of this piece, we are going to focus on the point total, and specifically the UNDER. Let’s take a closer look at this Super Bowl wager and find the reasons why it might be the way to go.


Why Bet the Under for Super Bowl 57?


Historical Results

We are all very aware that the bookies are great at setting the lines, so it should come as no great surprise that there is no real edge one way or the other with the point total going back through the years. The UNDER has hit 28 times in previous Super Bowls, while the OVER has hit 27 times, with 1 push.

While that doesn’t really help. We do have a trend going at the moment, with each of the last 4 championship games. The total right now is set at 51, which is a higher total than the result of 3 of the last 4, with the 4th in that group actually being 51. Since this doesn’t really help that much, let’s look at each individual team.


The Kansas City Chiefs and the UNDER

We know that the Chiefs have a great offense, although given the injuries they have on that side of the football, you do wonder how powerful they will be on Sunday. That aside, there are certainly reasons why the UNDER seems like a good pick, starting with the fact that 6 of their last 7 games versus a team with a winning record have gone UNDER. They have also seen 4 of their last 5 overall go UNDER and are 4-1 O/U in their last 5 games after a straight up win. Certainly, you have to say that a lot of the signs point one way, but there is another team involved, so let’s look at them.


The Philadelphia Eagles and the UNDER

Like the Chiefs, the Eagles can pile on the offense as needed, but that said, they haven’t really needed to in these playoffs, as they have surrendered just 14 points in their previous 2 postseason outings. In fact, they have seen the UNDER hit in each of their last 4 games. If we stick with just playoff games for the Eagles, they are also a good bet with the UNDER, with 16 of their last 22 games in the postseason going that route.

Right now, with the trends that we have just talked about and the injuries to the Chiefs, this feels like a game that might be a bit of a defensive struggle. Like we mentioned, though, these offenses can score at will, so we will also make a case for the OVER in a separate piece.
