In just a few days, Tom Brady and Patrick Mahomes will face off in one of the most anticipated Super Bowls in years. Earlier in the season we were given a Super Bowl preview between these two teams that was highlighted by a 269-yard, 3-touchdown performance from Tyreek Hill. The Chiefs went on to beat the Bucs 27-24, but now, Tampa gets its shot at revenge and to get Tom Brady his 7th Super Bowl championship.

Kansas City has proven time and time again they can score, and score fast. Will Tampa Bay's defense contain Mahomes or will it be a shootout in Super Bowl LV?

That's where we come in! Here at Rotoworld, we are offering tools to help you gain an edge over the competition and make sure each wager you place has the best chance of being a winning one. Whether you're new to sports betting or have been in the game for a while, these tools will help you sharpen your skills. From player projections to futures, our premium Betting Tools will offer you a new way to think about sports betting.

Earlier this week, we previewed our Futures tool feature in our Betting Tools to analyze the Super Bowl MVP odds. Today, we are taking a look at our Current Trends tool where you can find the most notable and profitable trends for Super Bowl LV. Indicated by a green, yellow or red bar, it's easy to see the strength of trends when looking for the right wager. 

Oddsmakers opened the Over/Under for the Super Bowl at 57.5 making it the highest total in Super Bowl history. Currently, the Over/Under at PointsBet sits at 56. Let's take a sneak peek at what we should expect given the Current Trends feature in our Betting Tools: 

 

Tampa Bay Buccaneers OVER Trend

Bucs Over Trend

By clicking 'See Details' our Current Trends will take you to our Edge Finder where you can see how this trend has been performing.

Bucs over trend 2

 

You can also find trends that tie in the Over/Under and the spread. For example, let's take a look at how the Over has performed when the Chiefs are favored to win:

 

Kansas City Chiefs OVER Trend

Chiefs over trend
Chiefs over trend 2

Given the current trends from both teams and the current spread on the game, our Betting Tools are suggesting the Over is likely to hit. Both teams have high-powered offenses and as football fans we should expect to see some fireworks to cap off the NFL season.
