    Super Bowl 51 Over/Under Odds

    There is no question that Atlanta and New England could very well get involved in a shootout where the team with the ball last wins SB 51. The average fan loves to see points and would love a Matt Ryan/Tom Brady duel, and oddsmakers are thinking along those same lines with SportsInteraction's total for the game lined at 58.5 currently.

    The Atlanta Falcons were an 'over' bettor's dream in 2016 with a 15-2-1 O/U record on the year. Both of their playoff games have easily cashed 'over' tickets thanks to the 40 points/game they've put up and Falcons fans would love to see similar production in the Super Bowl because they know if that happens the likelihood of Atlanta hoisting the Lombardi Trophy at the end is quite high. But New England's defence is vastly underrated by many NFL bettors out there as they enter the big game with the top scoring defence in the league this year (15.7 points allowed/game) and with two weeks to prepare for this daunting Atlanta attack, you'd better believe the Patriots defence will put their imprint on SB 51.

    BET UNDER 58.5 (-110) at SPORTS INTERACTION

    Although the Falcons have cashed 'over' bets hand over fist this season, that won't be the case in SB 51. Bill Belichick and the Patriots are known for taking the opponents best player out of the game and forcing the second, third and fourth options to beat them. That means that WR Julio Jones will be in tough all game long and other guys will have to step up for Atlanta.

    They have had 13 different guys catch TD passes this year, but they also haven't faced a defence that is as good as the Patriots are at limiting points and forcing drives to stall. Both sides have yet to cash an 'under' ticket in these playoffs so this selection may be a bit against the grain to some, but given the nerves involved in a game with this type of magnitude, neither offence will be as efficient as we've seen in the past. Both running games are also underrated as well, so with the notion of using the running attack to not only score points but keep the opposing offence on the sideline, getting to 60 points or so with a constantly running clock just won't happen.

    How To Bet On Super Bowl 51 Over/Under

    There are plenty of bettors out there that often overlook betting on NFL totals, but totals numbers aren't often as sharp as point spreads are and that means there is more of an edge available to bettors. This is one of those games as 58.5 points is just too high in this spot for both sides and bettors should be willing to attack this bet on the Super Bowl 51 Over/Under.
