Super Bowl Betting News: Monday, February 1
Tue Feb 02 2021
It’s officially Super Bowl week, which means that one of the most anticipated sporting events of the year is merely days away. While the buildup this year is a bit different due to the pandemic, that does not take away from the excitement level of the upcoming matchup between the Kansas City Chiefs and Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Whether you are calling it Super Bowl 55 or going the Roman numeral route and calling it Super Bowl LV, it’s slated to be an exciting matchup.
On the Super Bowl betting front, there is a look to keep track of as Sunday’s kickoff approaches. Here’s a look at how the Super Bowl odds continue to shape up and the latest Super Bowl betting news headlines.

Odds via Fanduel Sportsbook as of Monday, February 1 at 7:20 pm ET
Last year, the Chiefs closed as a 1.5-point favorite over the San Francisco 49ers for Super Bowl LIV. Thanks to a epic fourth-quarter comeback, Super Bowl LIV MVP Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs won 31-20. As a result, the Super Bowl favorite covered the spread for the third time in four years.

Chiefs Add Duo to COVID List
Today, Chiefs center Daniel Kilgore and wide receiver Demarcus Robinson were placed on the COVID/reserve list. Fortunately for the Chiefs, it is because of contact and not because either has tested positive…yet. If they continue to test negative, then they will be able to take the field on Sunday.
In the regular season, Robinson was third on the team in catches (45), fourth in receiving yards (466), and fourth in receiving touchdowns (3). In the postseason, he has only one catch for 14 yards in two games. Kilgore, meanwhile, is the backup to Austin Reiter at center. He played in seven regular-season games, with four starts, and has not played any offensive snaps in the postseason. For depth reasons, Andy Reid will be hoping that both players get through this week without testing positive. But in terms of Super Bowl betting, either or both being out would not move the needle.
