Predicted Super Bowl LVIII Showdown Months in Advance

With Super Bowl LVIII just around the corner, the sports world is abuzz with anticipation for the showdown between the San Francisco 49ers and the Kansas City Chiefs. But did you know, four months ago, had already predicted this face-off?


"Seeing our oddsmakers accurately predict the Super Bowl contenders months before the event is a testament to the passion and insight of our staff and the BetUS community," said Tim Williams, Director of Public Relations for "This phenomenon not only showcases the predictive power of betting odds but also cements our legacy as the pioneering online sportsbook in our 30th football season."


“Back in September, when BetUS first called this year’s Super Bowl contenders, our data also showed that customer betting patterns, known as the "handle," were highly favoring the 49ers, with 12.28% of bets and 18.08% of the dollar volume having been bet on San Francisco winning Super Bowl LVIII, versus just 5.17% of the bets and 7.45% of the money volume having been bet on the Chiefs.  That trend has since reversed itself by a significant margin, with 77% of both bets and dollar volume now predicting a Chiefs win,” Williams said.


The company has been making headlines recently after announcing an exhaustive series of Taylor Swift and Travis Kelce Super Bowl ‘prop bets’, ranging from whether or not the couple will appear together in a Super Bowl commercial to how many times Swift will be shown on camera during the broadcast.   


The company invites sports fans and media alike to delve into this fascinating story of predictive success and community engagement.  Time and again, betting odds have proven to be accurate predictors of future events, from the outcome of elections and even when the recent Hollywood Writer’s Strike would end.
