The spread for our Super Bowl LV matchup between the Kansas City Chiefs and Tampa Bay Buccaneers is relatively close, with FanDuel Sportsbook favoring the Chiefs by 3 points.

The money coming in on the game so far, however, is not particularly close.

Super Bowl Public Betting Data 2021

According to OddsFire, 68% of the spread bets for Super Bowl LV have come in on the Chiefs, with a whopping 82% of the money bet on the spready going toward KC. That leaves 32% of the bets and just 18% of the money going toward Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Things have been much closer on the moneyline, with the Chiefs receiving 47% of the volume and 53% of the money bet.

Action on the over/under has also been one-sided, with 75% of both the bets and the money coming in on the over.

These numbers are sure to change throughout the week leading up to the game, but it's very interesting to see the public money coming in so one-sided, while the point spread has barely budged.
