- The O/U record was set in Super Bowl XXIX when the San Francisco 49ers beat the San Diego Chargers 49-26.
- Both teams combining to score 76 or more points in Super Bowl 55 comes with +400 odds.
TAMPA - The NFL postseason is right around the corner as the playoff picture will become clear after the conclusion of Week 17 Sunday. There are seven teams across the AFC and NFC that have already claimed their spot in the playoffs before the regular season is over.
NFL Teams That Have Clinched A Playoff Berth:
- Kansas City Chiefs (14-1)
- Buffalo Bills (12-3)
- Pittsburgh Steelers (12-3)
- Green Bay Packers (12-3)
- New Orleans Saints (11-4)
- Seattle Seahawks (11-4)
- Tampa Bay Buccaneers (10-5)
These seven teams that are already in the postseason feature some of the highest-scoring offenses in the NFL this season. The Kansas City Chiefs and Packers round out the top two teams in scoring thus far and the scoring output could translate to the postseason but can any matchup of these teams that are already in the postseason combine to break the Super Bowl record for combined points?
The record of 75 points was set in Super Bowl XXIX when the San Francisco 49ers defeated the then named San Diego Chargers 49-26.
Of the seven teams with a postseason berth already clinched the Packers and Chiefs are the only two teams that average at least 30 points per game this season.
Bovada has posted a Super Bowl Special props that could net bettors a nice return should that record be broken in the championship game this year,
Will Both Teams Combined Score 76 Or More Points To Break The Super Bowl Record?
- Yes +400
- No -700
There’s already a lot of offensive firepower in the postseason as four of the five highest-scoring teams have claimed their spot. However, if the Kansas City Chiefs make it to the Super Bowl in consecutive years the combined score record has the potential to be broken no matter who represents the NFC.
The Chiefs offense is the best in the NFL and reigning Super Bowl MVP Patrick Mahomes has shown he can manufacture points no matter the opponent.
A Packers-Chiefs Super Bowl would be the highest-scoring Super Bowl matchup based on the two teams combined points per game average this season which is 61.7 points.
Aaron Rodgers leads the NFL in passing touchdowns with 44 and Mahomes has thrown the second most with 38.
With the Chiefs already earning a first-round bye they have a slight advantage over the rest of the field in their road to the Super Bowl. The Packers control their own destiny and could clinch a first-round bye with a win over the Chicago Bears on Sunday.
If the Packers or Chiefs or just one of these two teams make it to the Super Bowl roll the dice on the +400 odds that offense reigns supreme and 76 combined points are scored in Super Bowl LV.
Even outside of the Packers/Chiefs matchup other NFC teams like the Seahawks, Saints, and Buccaneers could get into a shootout with the Chiefs, and break the record should they meet in the Super Bowl LV.
