Early Odds for Super Bowl LV Between Chiefs and Buccaneers
We're two weeks away from Super Bowl LV, and oddsmakers in Las Vegas already have some early lines set for the game.
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers will be designated the home team against the Kansas City Chiefs in Super Bowl XL (the NFL alternates years for which conference serves as the home team in the Super Bowl).
For the first time in NFL history, a team will be playing in their home stadium for the Super Bowl, and that honor goes to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. They will be allowed to use the home locker room at Raymond James Stadium for the game. Will this translate into a home field advantage? Well, as you can see below, one set of oddsmakers doesn't think so, with the Chiefs favored by 3½ for the championship.
Late Sunday night, BetOnline issued odds for Super Bowl LV:
Tampa Bay Buccaneers vs Kansas City Chiefs
Tampa Bay Buccaneers +3½
Kansas City Chiefs -3½
Tampa Bay Buccaneers +160 (8/5)
Kansas City Chiefs -180 (5/9)
