Tom Grossi’s Super Bowl Pick

San Francisco 49ers

"Super Bowl Pick: 49ers. With a suffocating pass rush and a balanced offense, the 49ers should be up to the challenge to slow down Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs' dynamic pass attack."

"MVP: Nick Bosa. Jimmy Garoppolo has been serviceable this post-season. The real star of the show has been 2019 2nd round pick Nick Bosa. If the 49ers win, look for him to get the MVP nod."

    Super Bowl LIV – Tom Grossi’s Top Pick

    What’s going on everybody, Tom Grossi here with an exclusive video for OnlineGambling.com to break down the Super Bowl 54 matchup between San Francisco 49ers and the Kansas City Chiefs.

    So, the first question of course, is who’s going to win this game? You look at the Kansas City Chiefs and how they are able to hold Derrick Henry to just 69 yards and one touchdown and an impressive showing in the in the AFC Championship game, while Patrick Mahomes after the, who over the past two games, have us thrown eight touchdowns and 615 yards. So obviously, if the Kansas City Chiefs hope to win that is going to come off the arm of Patrick Mahomes.

    Meanwhile, the San Francisco 49ers have been able to bulldoze their way through the NFC playoffs with their, suffocating, pass rush and their ability to really just move the ball from all points of the field whether its George Kittle in for blocking and allowing Mostert to get four touchdowns in over 200 yards in the NFC Championship game, or its Jimmy Garoppolo who literally just had the throw the ball six times to beat the Packers.

    But don’t worry I’m not bitter. I think that the 49ers are the more balanced football team here, they do have a better defense and I think that’s what its going to come down to. If the old saying of defense wins championships, then I think the 49ers are going to be able to, to take this one.

    But as we’ve seen during the regular season, you’ve also seen the 49ers give up a ton of points against teams like the New Orleans Saints so that being said I am going to be picking the San Francisco 49ers to take this one and looking at the MVP I’m going to go on the defensive side of the ball and go with Nick Bosa, Bosa has been on a tear, terrorizing quarterbacks all season long and I expect that to continue, on Super Bowl Sunday.

Betting on the Super Bowl

With so many available markets, betting on the Super Bowl can be as simple or complex as you like. The most popular is a simple prediction on which team will win, but it’s also possible to bet on things such as the final score, the total number of points, and many different prop bets (these are discussed in detail further down this page).

According to the American Gaming Association, Americans bet nearly $5 billion on the Super Bowl alone. More states have started to offer legal sports betting since they came up with this figure though, so the actual amount wagered on Super Bowl 2020 is likely to be even more.

Year Wagered Money

2018 $158,586,934
2017 $138,480,136
2016 $132,545,587
2015 $115,986,086

Super Bowl Betting Tips

1
High Scoring

Both teams averaged over 28 points per game throughout the season. Last year’s Super Bowl wasn’t the most exciting at 13-3, but with an over/under set at 54 points at bookmakers, it’s well worth a punt on this being one of the event’s highest scoring games.

2
Rushing Mahomes

While Patrick Mahomes is a beast with his arm, his 27 yard touchdown in the AFC Conference Championship showed he can rush too. He’s an outside bet as first/last touchdown scorer, but don’t count him out to run the ball again.

3
MVP Bosa

We’re going to agree with Tom Grossi on this one and say a pick for Nick Bosa as MVP is a great choice. He’s part of a formidable 49ers defensive line who have been dominant in the pass rush. Nine sacks for Bosa so far this year and more to come on February 2nd.

If you have a good understanding of the game, bet in-play. This will allow you to get a good feeling for the game, and you can then use your knowledge and intuition to make accurate bets on what will happen next.

The Super Bowl can be an emotional affair, especially if your team is playing. Don’t let your heart rule your head though, and instead make bets based on facts and knowledge, even if that means betting against your team.

Remember that many sports betting websites will offer fantastic promotions for Super Bowl, such as free bets and enhanced odds. You should search for these before placing your bets on the game.

Super Bowl Prop Bets

Prop bets are extremely popular with those betting on the Super Bowl, bringing an extra level of entertainment to the match, while also leading to huge payouts.

While many will place prop bets before the Super Bowl, with such a great range of markets open for the event, placing live prop bets is also huge part of Super Bowl betting. Here are some of the most popular prop bets you can make on the Super Bowl.

What is a Prop Bet?

Prop bets are individual bets on specific events surrounding the game, which do not directly affect the result.

Most Popular
Prop Bets

  • Super Bowl MVP
    One of the most popular prop bets is on which player will be awarded the title of Super Bowl’s Most Valuable Player. Those looking to play it safe should pick a quarterback, although correctly predicting a player from a different position can lead to a nice payout.
  • Leading Rusher
    This is easy, as you simply have to predict which player will rush for the highest number of yards throughout the game. This is an especially fun bet if both teams are known for their ground game. Will the star running back come through, or will a new name shine on the biggest stage of them all?
  • Number of Touchdowns
    This bet doesn’t need explaining, as you simply have to bet on how many touchdowns will be scored throughout the game. Some will prefer to bet over or under a set number, while more adventurous gamblers will instead bet on the exact number of touchdowns.
  • Return of Net Play
    This is one for those who like to bet in-play. You’ll need to read the game and decide what the result of the next play will be. Will they manage to punch the ball into the end zone, or will they end up punting the ball back down the pitch? These bets are resolved quickly, so you can keep making them for the whole game.
  • Coin Toss
    While betting on the coin toss might sound pretty mundane, many love to start off their night of betting by predicting whether it will be heads or tails. As you can probably work out, you’ve got a 50/50 chance of being right. Some sites instead offer odds on the team that will win the coin toss.
  • QB to Throw an Interception
    Before a game, why not have a bet on how many passing yards will be thrown by a quarterback? This can be as an over/under bet, or you try to be exact with the figure. It’s also often possible to bet on the combined number of yards thrown by all QBs in the game.
  • Total Passing Yards
    With this bet, you’ll simply be betting on whether a quarterback will throw an interception during the game. Most will throw at least one, so the riskier bet is on none being thrown. You could also bet live on whether the current play will end with an interception.
  • Retirement After Game
    Super Bowl is often the final game for a player, as they bid to go out on a high. You can bet on whether a certain player will retire, and the odds can be good if you manage to predict a retirement nobody else saw coming. Remember that players keep playing for much longer nowadays though – just look at Tom Brady!
  • Color of Gatorade
    In a Super Bowl tradition, the coach of the winning team is usually covered in Gatorade at the end of the match. Gatorade afficionados will know that the drink comes in many different colors though, so what will the color of the Gatorade poured over the coach be?
  • Half Time Show
    The half time show is usually one of the highlights of the Super Bowl. Many people bet on this event, and perhaps the most popular bet is whether an act will perform a certain track. It’s often possible to also find some really obscure markets when looking to bet on the half time performance.
