Both squads earned impressive victories against Red Hot teams at their respective conference championships. The Chiefs defeated Josh Allen and the Bills at home, while the Bucs defeated Aaron Rodgers and the Packers at Lambeau Field.
Although the Chiefs were not as dominant as last year, they still maintained the league’s best record this season. The Bucs looked dull at times during the season, but they dominated the playoffs and finished second in their division.
Here are some bets I’d like to make for today’s match.
Bucs/Chiefs O/U 56
Patrick Mahomes’ defense is a challenge for any opponent. The Buccaneers will try to stop Mahomes tonight and win their first Super Bowl title since 2002.

Mahomes is a nightmare to keep out of the pocket. With one of the best fast defenses in the game, the Bucs hit the QB at a high rate. If the Bucs decide to launch a blitz, it could be a disaster for them, as Mahomes is probably the best to dodge the blitz and make it a massive game.
Mahomes is elite when it comes to reading defenses, but the speed of the Bucs’ defense could also play a role, as the Chiefs are devoid of their two best offensive linemen. I think the absence of their two best linemen with the Chiefs will help the Bucs stay home and defend the pass. The overtime/no-huddle percentage went from 57.5 the week before to 56 on Super Bowl Sunday. I think this is a low blow.
Voice: Bucky/Chiefs under 56.
Bucs / Leaders and MLs
Tom Brady has a chance to cement himself as a goat. His seven championship series are unprecedented in the NFL.

There is no denying that Brady is the greatest of all time. He reaches the Super Bowl for the first time without one of the greatest coaches of all time, Bill Belichick, in a new city. Brady joins one of football’s hottest offenses and brings along his favorite target to win the Super Bowl: Rob Gronkowski.
Brady, with time on his hands, could be a nightmare for the Chiefs’ defense, especially if they get Ronald Jones and Leonard Fournette for the game. I think Brady’s experience, his offensive weapons and the speed of the Bucs’ defense could be enough to get him his seventh Super Bowl ring. The gap opened at the beginning of the week to -3.5 and now stands at -3. I think Brady will do very well. I think the Buccaneers +3 and the Silver Line too.
Choose: Bucs +3 and Bucs ML.
