However, the odds at FanDuel Sportsbook have seen a notable shift in Super Bowl LV's over/under.
When this Super Bowl matchup was set, the point total opened at 57.5. However, as of Feb. 4, the over/under has fallen 2 points to 55.5.
It's notable that the total has shifted this late without any recent major injury news for either side. However, there is another factor that could be at fault for the shift.
After previously boasting an almost perfect weather forecast, the weather for Sunday's Super Bowl now has rain and possible thunderstorms on the docket. While the conditions are expected to improve by the game's 6:30 p.m. EST kickoff, the weather can be unpredictable, and it makes sense if sportsbooks are taking this into account.
These teams are projected to rack up serious yardage on Sunday, but rain could have a major impact if it's in the cards. Bettors seem undeterred by the weather's potential effect, though with 73% of bets on the over of 55.5 points.
