We’re only a few days away from Super Bowl 55! The Kansas City Chiefs have arrived in Tampa and they and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are back at practice. The teams held walkthroughs to start the week and will get back to full practice on Wednesday. We’ll get an updated injury report Wednesday afternoon, as we start to see more banged up players getting back on the practice field for the big game.
We have not seen much movement at all, with oddsmakers moving the spread a half point and the point total a point. The Eric Fisher injury coming out of the AFC title game was the big one, but the early line reflected that. Without any big changes, it’s unlikely we see any notable change to the betting odds.
So where are sports bettors going as we get closer to game time? Let’s take a look. All odds and info were provided by DraftKings Sportsbook as of Tuesday morning, February 2nd.
