Longshot Bets To Consider For Super Bowl LVIII

The Super Bowl is a little over a week away, and Americans are set to watch the country’s No. 1 show every year—with added interest given everything that surrounds the Chiefs team looking to repeat. As comes with the territory today, millions of fans will also be betting on the Big Game while shopping around on the best NFL betting sites.


Christian McCaffrey to score 2+ Rushing TD (+430)

Though perhaps surprisingly, the 49ers are favorites over the Chiefs for Super Bowl LVIII. If San Francisco is to win, it likely means a big game from superstar running back Christian McCaffrey, who has been as good of a bet as there is this season to find the end zone each week. CMC scored twice in the NFC Championship Game against the tough run defense of the Lions, and he’s the obvious go-to guy when the Niners are ready to punch it in for six.


Christian McCaffrey to score 1+ Rushing and 1+ Receiving TD (+900)

The versatility of CMC makes him someone to target as a scorer both as a runner and a receiver on February 11, with +900 odds to score a rushing and receiving touchdown. Kyle Shanahan is obviously going to pull out all the stops with a title on the line, and maybe he’s saved or drawn up some crafty plays for the All-Pro running back to have plus matchups in the passing game, particularly in scoring territory.


Final score to have occurred as past Super Bowl final (+410)

Super Bowls have had some unique scores over the years, but there have been plenty of more common outcomes with numbers like 35, 31, 24, and 34 being hit. In their past two games, the participants have hit common point totals of 24, 34 (49ers), 27, and 17 (Chiefs). Both squads are very strong and should play straightforward as opposed to trying anything unusual, which could lead to a more traditional outcome on the scoreboard.


Both teams to score TD on first possession (+1500)

We’re dealing with two of the greatest offensive coaches in the league in Andy Reid and Kyle Shanahan, and it wouldn’t shock anyone if two supremely crafted opening salvos lead to a quick 7-7 start to the game. Overall, both teams should be able to move the ball on the opening drive, and you can also consider going with the option of one of them attempting a field goal instead of both scoring touchdowns.


Nick Bosa to win Super Bowl MVP (+10000)

If the Chiefs win the Super Bowl, it will take something crazy for Patrick Mahomes to not win the game’s MVP (as we saw when Damien Williams did not win Super Bowl LIV MVP). But if the 49ers hoist the Lombardi, it could be a more wide-open race for Super Bowl MVP. Their quarterback Brock Purdy has not been given much media credit to this point, and the offense has several impactful stars. On the other side of the ball, Nick Bosa is intriguing in his matchup with Chiefs right tackle Jawaan Taylor, who was the most penalized lineman in the league this season. Drawing some key holding penalties along with couple of sacks and/or a turnover forced could put Bosa squarely in the MVP mix.
