It’s almost obvious.
Every weekend in winter has plenty of games. There are hockey and basketball, college and pro. But this weekend, there’s only one game that matters.
San Francisco vs. Kansas City.
The Super Bowl.
So in this week’s PennSportsbooks Pick Play, we’re focusing on the different stages of the Super Bowl — the biggest game there is — and will cover all the corresponding odds at your favorite online Pennsylvania sportsbook.
The action will air at 6:30 p.m. Sunday on Fox.
Let’s start with a coin flip.
Pregame: The coin toss
Those looking for even more pregame action in other states may be able to find over/unders on the length of the national anthem. But the coin toss is a fun prop that can be found at a number of PA sports betting apps.
DraftKings has heads and tails at both -103. Likewise, the 49ers and Chiefs are both -103 to win the coin toss.
Over at Fox Bet, both heads and tails are listed at +100. They are also offering a parlay combining the coin toss with the game’s eventual winner. Kansas City is +260 and San Francisco is +300.
First Quarter: Game’s First Play
There are a number of first-quarter bets available, but the game’s first offensive play is another fun one.
FanDuel Sportsbook has a rush at -120. A pass is -105. You can also bet the winner of the first quarter at BetRivers. The three-way wager has San Francisco at +148 on the first quarter moneyline. Kansas City is +133. A tie is +300.
Second Quarter: Halftime Bets
Fox Bet has plenty of odds to carry the action to halftime. The three-way halftime moneyline at Fox Bet has San Francisco at +115. Kansas City is +100 and a tie is +1100.
The first-half spread is a pick ’em. The over/under for the first half is set at 26.5.
Third Quarter: Scoring by Quarter
Over at DraftKings Sportsbook, there are wagers posted to keep every quarter interesting. One of them is a prop bet for any quarter to end scoreless. “Yes” is listed at +425. “No” has a price of -625.
Conversely, you could also bet that both teams will score in every quarter. That wager would return +650 for “Yes.” A “No” wager has -1115 odds.
Fourth Quarter: Last Touchdown Scorer
The last touchdown isn’t guaranteed to occur in the fourth quarter, but a last touchdown scorer wager can often carry the excitement close to the end of the game. PlaySugarHouse PA has odds posted on players to score the first touchdown, the last touchdown, or a touchdown at any point in the game.
Here are the odds on some of the favorites from each team to score the game’s last touchdown:
- Raheem Mostert (SF): +650
- George Kittle (SF): +900
- Deebo Samuel (SF): +1200
- Tevin Coleman (SF): +1400
- Emmanuel Sanders (SF): +1600
- Damian Williams (KC): +650
- Travis Kelce (KC): +700
- Tyreek Hill (KC): +750
- Sammy Watkins (KC): +1800
- Patrick Mahomes (KC): +2000
DraftKings also has odds posted on the jersey number of the last touchdown scorer. Over 26.5 is +115. Under 26.5 is -143.
End of the Game: 2021 Champion
One way to extend the action even beyond the game is to grab some early odds on next year’s champion. DraftKings Sportsbook has futures prices posted for all 32 teams on their odds to win the 2021 Super Bowl. The Chiefs are the favorite at +600. The Steelers (+2000), Bills (+3500), and Eagles (+1700) would provide much greater returns. Check out the DraftKings site for a complete list of odds.
One of the best things about football’s biggest game is that the sportsbooks have odds posted for almost every stage of the Super Bowl. We’ve given you an overview with our Pick Play, but there are hundreds of other bets available, too.
It’s a huge game, after all.
Enjoy the game, and good luck.
