For the first time, we’ve computed data-driven team and player projections for the Super Bowl — in this case, Super Bowl LV between the Kansas City Chiefs and Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Similar to how we create our predictions and odds for March Madness, these Super Bowl projections are rooted in hard data like power ratings and betting odds, but driven by a thorough manual analysis of team, matchup, and player specific factors. The methodology behind our projection approach is explained in detail below.
Our goal here is to provide an objective foundation to help our subscribers evaluate the staggering amount of prop bets available to Super Bowl bettors. Unlike the heavily scrutinized point spread market, for example, the huge variety of props on offer for the Super Bowl should (in theory) provide a decent opportunity to find at least a few props offered by sportsbooks that are positive expectation bets.
We will update these projections based on relevant news that breaks before the Super Bowl kicks off (e.g. injury situations). We also plan to publish some additional articles that use these projections to analyze some specific Super Bowl LV player props on offer, including touchdown prop bets.
We will start with team passing and rushing projections, and then move on to specific player projections.
Last Update: Thursday, February 4th
Our team stat projections are based on multiple factors. These include:
Here are our projections for both teams:
