Super Bowl LV Props Recap: Rob Gronk Gronkowski & Tom Brady - Tampa Bay Buccaneers vs. Kansas City Chiefs
970x90 BetMGM Sportsbook - Article - Risk-Free Bet $600 Well, folks – all great things must come to an end. The NFL season is officially over. It was a pretty uneventful Super Bowl, to say the least. If you expected a high-scoring shootout between Brady and Mahomes, you were left disappointed. The Chiefs could not get anything going against this Bucs defense and only mustered up a pathetic nine total points. That's why we bet on props for Super Bowl LV though – to make the game exciting regardless of how it plays out. Let’s take a look at the biggest prop bets to hit on Sunday in our Super Bowl LV props recap.

Recapping the Top Super Bowl LV Props

Gronk First Touchdown Scorer (+1400), Gronk 2 TDs (+1100)

If you read my picks article posted earlier in the week, I expected Gronk to have a decent game. However, I didn't expect to see the resurgence of 2011 Gronk. If you pulled the trigger and laid cash on Gronk as the first touchdown scorer, you spiked a nice +1400 payout. If you had even more faith in the big goofy bastard and took him to score two touchdowns, you're sitting pretty right now after hitting a nice +1100. Not a bad return while crushing PBRs and buffalo chicken wing dip on a Sunday. After that second touchdown, it seemed like he had Super Bowl MVP in the bag. If you took this line at +7000, it was definitely looking good. But this is the NFL, and the quarterbacks are always favored when it comes to MVP. Tom Brady ended up taking the title at a much lower payout of +200.

Chiefs Not to Score a Touchdown (+5000)

If you went contrarian and faded the public on this one, congratulations – pat yourself on the back. Not only did the Bucs win outright, the total points scored came in much lower than the original line set at 56. If you took it a step further and specifically faded Mahomes and the entire Chiefs offense, you woke up Monday feeling pretty great about that decision. The payout for the Chiefs not scoring a single touchdown was a whopping +5000. If you laid $100 on this prop, you rewarded yourself with a nice $5000 win. Considering how the Chiefs absolutely ran over the Bucs in week 12, this line could have been set much higher. This miserable showing by the Chiefs was due largely to one factor. The Chiefs offensive line was dismantled throughout the season. Before the season started, they lost a few starters on the line. Laurent Duvernay-Tardif and Lucas Niang both opted out before the season started, while others including Eric Fisher sustained significant injuries ending their season. The result was a Swiss-cheese-like offensive line, which allowed the Bucs to maintain constant pressure on the already-hampered Mahomes on nearly every play. Another factor for this abysmal performance by the Chiefs was the number of calls the Patriots...err...um.... I mean the Bucs, were getting from the refs. Sure, it might sound like I’m making excuses because I bet heavily on the Chiefs, but there were a couple of key plays in the early moments that definitely swung this game in the Bucs’ favor. Regardless, they won in an impressive fashion. Tom Brady gets his 7th ring and further cements himself as the GOAT. William Hill RF500 - 728x90

Buccaneers Super Bowl Winner Futures

Looking back at the odds set for the Buccaneers to win before the Brady trade, the line was +5000. If you are one of those who pulled the trigger this early and held on until the Super Bowl, you had amazing opportunities to hedge and guarantee a profit. If you backed Brady and the Bucs after the trade, it still paid off big time at +2000. Just a $100 bet would have given you over a $2000 return. Considering all of the offensive weapons the Bucs have, this was amazing value. Unfortunately, I was one of those that doubted Brady and never jumped on it. The biggest question I had was whether or not Tom Brady was washed up. I didn't think he could lead another team to the Super Bowl at 43 years old. If you read my article thus far, you might have noticed that I exude hate for Tom Brady. After this years’ Super Bowl performance along with constantly getting burned from betting against him the last ten years – maybe it’s time to reconsider my stance. As of right now, PointsBet has the Bucs repeating a Super Bowl title at +900. This might be the perfect opportunity to start drinking that avocado Kool-Aid. It will be interesting to see how these odds fluctuate during the offseason. This is a great value considering Tom Brady hinted at another year and the Bucs being confident in retaining a lot of the key players that contributed to this win. The 2020-2021 NFL season has concluded, but don't worry, there is plenty more action right around the corner.
