The Kansas City Chiefs and Tampa Bay Buccaneers are set to compete for Super Bowl 55 this Sunday, February 7th in Tampa, Florida.
Yes, Kansas City is in Missouri, but seeing as it’s right on the border of Kansas it’s as close to the big game as the State will get.
The Super Bowl is usually the most bet on single day sporting event of the year in the United States. With the Chiefs being so close geographically to both Kansas and Oklahoma, I expect plenty of Chiefs fans from those States will be looking to place bets.
On this page I will recommend two of our top rated betting sites for American residents, touch on the legalities of sports betting in Oklahoma and Kansas, look at the odds for Super Bowl 55 and provide a simple 3 step guide you can follow to place your Super Bowl bets online.
Best Betting Sites for Americans
- Built for American bettors

BetOnline and Bovada are our two top rated online sportsbooks for American residents, including anyone living in Oklahoma or Kansas. Both sites focus on providing a great betting product for American players and both are respected and popular betting sites serving the USA.
For the remainder of this guide I will be using BetOnline.ag for all examples and guides.
Sports Betting in Oklahoma and Kansas
At this time it is not legal to run a sports betting operation in either Oklahoma or Kansas.
Oklahoma has reached an agreement on new gaming compacts (that include sports betting) with two federally-recognized tribes. Once the compacts are published into the Federal Register regulated sports betting can technically begin in Oklahoma. That said, there are lawmakers in Oklahoma who oppose regulated sports betting in the state. At this time it is not legal to operate a sportsbook in Oklahoma, and that changing in the near or distant future is uncertain.
Kansas had a bill introduced in January of 2018 that would have allowed the Kansas lottery to include sports betting, but no action has since been taken on this bill. A new sports betting bill was introduced in January of 2019, but again there is no word on its progression.
If you live in Oklahoma or Kansas you can still bet on the Super Bowl at offshore betting sites that are licensed, regulated and located outside of the United States. The two sites outlined above fall into this category.
2021 Super Bowl Odds
Let’s take a look at the odds for some of the popular bets you can make on Super Bowl 55 (odds taken on February 4th).
The point spread is the most popular NFL bet during the regular season.
The Chiefs are 3 point favorites according to the above odds. This means they would have to win by 4 or more to cover the spread. The Buccaneers would have to win the game outright or lose by 2 or fewer points to beat their +3 spread. If the Chiefs win by exactly 3 then spread bets would push.
The money line bet is simply wagering on which team will win the game. The risk vs reward is determined by the odds.
The Chiefs are the favorites with odds of -165, so you would have to wager $165 to win $100 betting on the Chiefs.
The Buccaneers are +145 underdogs, so a $100 wager would win $145 if Tampa Bay wins the game.
The over/under for the game is set at 56. Over bets will win if 57 or more points are scored by both teams combined, while under bets will win if 55 or fewer points are scored.
