Tom Brady Super Bowl Betting Trends: Individual Stats
With Brady no longer with the Patriots, you have a split among fans that could impact the way you place your bets for Super Bowl 55. Some may be solely New England fans and don’t want to bet on Tampa Bay, while others are just fans of Brady and want him to succeed.
Whatever your betting motivation, there are plenty of individual Super Bowl 55 props that you can bet on No. 12. Here are some Tom Brady Super Bowl betting trends specific to him that may help you handicap those options.
Tom Brady Super Bowl Betting History: Passing Yards, Touchdowns and Completions
Online sportsbook BetOnline has a big list of Super Bowl 55 player props that you can wager on, and a popular one is OVER/UNDER passing yards for Brady. In his first Super Bowl appearance as a rookie in 2001 at Super Bowl 36, he threw for just 145 yards, the fewest he has had in any of the big games. Brady has thrown for less than 250 yards just one other time while topping the 300-yard mark four times.
His average passing yardage in the big game is 315.3 and for Super Bowl 55, Brady’s O/U passing yard total is set at 301.5 yards with both the OVER and UNDER paying -114.
If you’re looking for an option with a little more juice, total passing touchdowns may be right up your alley. BetOnline has Brady’s passing touchdowns set at 2.5 with the OVER paying +120 and the UNDER coming back at -156.
In nine Super Bowls, Brady has thrown a total of 18 touchdown passes to six interceptions, averaging two scoring strikes per game while throwing three or more in just three games. So, while a plus-money option might be intriguing, it may not be your best bet.
Lastly, another Super Bowl 55 prop that you can play is pass completions. Going up against the Chiefs, Brady’s pass completion total is set at 24.5 with the OVER and UNDER both holding -114 odds. This may be a good opportunity to hop on an OVER as Brady has surpassed 25 completions in six of the previous nine Super Bowls, averaging 28.4.

Tom Brady Super Bowl Betting Trends: Live-betting options
Many sports bettors prefer to make their wagers in-game when they have a better feel for the tempo of the game or are looking to take advantage of a large swing in the odds following a big play. Everyone loves a fourth-quarter comeback and while the Giants did so twice against the Patriots, at Super Bowl 42 and Super Bowl 46, New England also pulled off two fourth-quarter comebacks, at Super Bowl 49 vs Seattle and Super Bowl 51 vs Atlanta.
Tom Brady and the Patriots also had four game-winning drives, scoring the last points of the game to take the lead and win the Super Bowl. Two of those drives resulted in touchdowns and two in field goals. So keep an eye on the odds for the Buccaneers if they are trailing in the fourth quarter because Brady may lead yet another late game-winning drive.
