After spending most of the week at -3, the Kansas City Chiefs spread against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for Super Bowl LV has ticked up to -3.5, per BettingPros consensus odds.
With the opening line falling right on the key number of three, it was always going to take a lot of betting action on either side to move it off the key number. As expected, the first move went in favor of the Chiefs who have won 23 of their last 24 games as favorites. However, the -3.5 might not last long at many sportsbooks given how much betting attention the Buccaneers are likely to receive now they they are getting the "hook." BetMGM has already reported a bettor placed a $2.3M bet on the Buccaneers +3.5, which would pay out two million dollars if the Buccaneers cover. No matter how much money is bet on either side from here out at BetMGM, that $2.3 million bet is likely to have that specific sportsbook rooting for the Chiefs.
