Betting on which team wins Super Bowl LIV between the San Francisco 49ers and Kansas City Chiefs on Feb. 2 in Miami is just the tip of the iceberg. Sports Interaction has hundreds of prop options with more added each day. Here’s a look at a few team props and some picks.

Betting Super Bowl Props 

Just one Super Bowl has ever gone to overtime and that was when the New England Patriots rallied from a 28-3 late third-quarter deficit against the Atlanta Falcons in SB LI, and the Pats won 34-28 in OT. That this game goes to OT is +600 with no at -1400. Kansas City has not played an overtime game this season. San Francisco has played a ton of close games this year – just not in the playoffs – and had one to go overtime with a few more nearly so.

Believe it or not, no Super Bowl has featured one team being shut out. The fewest points scored is three by two teams, most recently the Los Angeles Rams in last year’s 13-3 loss to the Patriots in the lowest-scoring Super Bowl ever. That there’s a shutout in this game is yes-only at +4000. So it would take a $100 bet to return $4000.

A majority of the NFL teams didn’t have a safety during the regular season and there have been just seven of them in Super Bowl history, most recently by the Seattle Seahawks on the first play against the Denver Broncos in SB XLVII. That set the tone for the game as the Seahawks won in a rout. That there is a safety in 49ers-Chiefs is +500 with no -995.

Will there be a special teams or defensive touchdown? Yes is +400 and no -750. Most kickoffs aren’t even returned these days because kickers boot the ball so deep into the end zone that they are usually touchbacks. There hasn’t been a kickoff return score in the Super Bowl since Seattle’s Percy Harvin in XLVIII against Denver. There has NEVER been a punt-return touchdown.

Defensive touchdowns are certainly more common. San Francisco has none this post-season but had five during the regular season with one of the NFL’s best defences. Kansas City had three in the regular season and none in the playoffs.

The Chiefs are -140 to score the longest touchdown and the Niners +100, with the longest TD of the game given an over/under of 44.5 yards (both -120). Makes complete sense Kansas City is favoured because it has the NFL’s ultimate game-breaker in wideout Tyreek Hill. Sammy Watkins is no slouch, either. The 49ers don’t have anyone like that and are much more of a conservative running team.

The record for most field goals made by both teams in one Super Bowl is a surprisingly low five. The over/under for SB LIV is 3.5, with the under a -130 favourite. The longest is set at over/under 47.5, with both at -120. The record is 54 yards by Buffalo’s Steve Christie in XXVIII vs. Dallas.

The Rams’ Greg Zeurlein hit a 53-yarder last year vs. the Patriots for L.A.’s only points. The long this season for Kansas City’s Harrison Butker is 56 yards and for San Francisco’s Robbie Gould 47. The Chiefs are -125 to kick the longest field goal and Niners -115.

Super Bowl Team Prop Predictions

Bet Chiefs for longest field goal because Butker has a big leg, while Gould is very accurate but doesn’t have 50-yard range. Under 3.5 total field goals and under 47.5 yards (likely would go over if game were in a dome). Worth a few dollars on the OT prop at that +600 price. The Chiefs will have the longest touchdown play but under 44.5 yards. There will be a defensive/special teams TD.
