Super Bowl LIV point spread, money line, total score, MVP, props

What. A. Game.

The Super Bowl is the greatest sports wagering opportunity on the calendar, and Super Bowl LIV between the Kansas City Chiefs and San Francisco 49ers lived up to the hype. In a hotly contested, back-and-forth affair, the Chiefs emerged as Super Bowl champions — and covered the spread, while the under cashed, and Patrick Mahomes won MVP as the pregame betting favorite at +100.

Yes, that’s right; Mahomes was effectively a 50/50 shot to win MVP, and he lived up to the hype. Here’s how things unfolded.

At kickoff, the lines closed at:

Point spread

Kansas City Chiefs -1.5 (-110)

San Francisco 49ers +1.5 (-110)

Money line

Kansas City Chiefs: -125

San Francisco 49ers: +110

Total score

Over 52.5: -110

Under 52.5: -105

National anthem

Chances are, you know someone who had a little bit of extra interest in the pregame national anthem, which had an over/under set at two minutes. The anthem clocked in at 1 minute and 50 seconds.

As for the game? Well…

First quarter:

The first score of the game went to the 49ers:

And Patrick Mahomes made a number of people happy by cashing in at +2200 to score on the ground (or, to be fair, as a receiver…but come on) for the first TD of the game.

In the second quarter, the long-shot cashes continued, as the Niners pulled even at 10-10…

After a huge Nick Bosa sack and a Fred Warner interception, the Niners punched it in to take a 20-10 lead…

After three quarters, the Niners were 5.5-point favorites on the live line, with an over/under of 46.5. Indeed, it looked as if San Francisco might slam the door closed as the underdog … but one counts out Patrick Mahomes at one’s own peril:

Back within one score, the Chiefs were almost 2-to-1 on the live money line with just six minutes to play:

And the Chiefs rewarded those who had faith in their comeback ability, driving down the field to take a 24-20 lead!

Damien Williams tacked on an extra score, putting the over/under in play:

But when the clock hit all zeroes, those who had the total score of under 51.5 were on their way to the window. Unfortunately, in the volatility of the pregame market, the total did come down to 50.5 for a brief moment. We hope you were on the right side of that massive swing.

Oh, and one last note for you true adventurous souls — the Gatorade was orange (+200).
