Super Bowl LIV is a little over a week away, and with it comes an array of prop bets. Traditionally, one of the most famous props is wagering on whether the shortest touchdown of the game will be over or under 1.5 yards.

With that in mind, let's break down the over/under for the shortest touchdown of Super Bowl LIV.

Betting over 1.5 yards is available at +130 on FanDuel Sportsbook, while the under is listed at -165. The odds suggest that the under is more likely to be the right side of this bet, and that's certainly backed up by recent Super Bowl history.

Five of the last seven Super Bowls have seen at least one 1-yard touchdown, and there had been a 1-yard TD in three consecutive Super Bowls prior to last year's game between the Los Angeles Rams and New England Patriots.

Notably, the Kansas City Chiefs have either scored or surrendered a 1-yard touchdown in both of their postseason games thus far. The San Francisco 49ers, meanwhile, have also either scored or surrendered a 1-yard TD in both of their playoff games.

Recent Super Bowl history, and both team's playoff performances, certainly suggest that taking under 1.5-yards could pay off, but in a game of this magnitude, anything can happen.
