It’s Super Bowl Sunday!!


Happy Super Bowl Sunday! Today is an unofficial American holiday and the season finale of the NFL season. It comes as no surprise that the defending champion Kansas City Chiefs are back in the big dance and are looking to become the first back-to-back Super Bowl champion since the New England Patriots did it in 2003 and 2004. For the first time in NFL history, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers will be playing the Super Bowl on their home turf in Raymond James Stadium.

Tom Brady proved this season that he doesn’t need Bill Belichick to make it to the Super Bowl. Brady will be making his 10th super bowl appearance on Sunday, the most by any quarterback in NFL history. Brady will continue his luxurious NFL career and make more history by trying to capture his seventh Lombardi trophy. If so, Brady will have more Super Bowl titles alone than any NFL franchise.

On the other side, it’s the Kansas City Chiefs and fourth-year signal-caller Patrick Mahomes. Mahomes is trying to make history of his own by becoming the youngest quarterback in NFL history to win two Lombardi trophies at the age of 25. Who is currently the youngest quarterback to win two Lombardi trophies? Of course, the man he is facing, Tom Brady, who won two Super Bowls by the time he was 26 years old.

As you can tell the biggest storyline in this year’s Super Bowl is Patrick Mahomes chasing the G.O.A.T Tom Brady. Some say that if Mahomes can’t beat Brady on Sunday then, he can never surpass him as the greatest of all time. It’s crazy how Mahomes’ first four years in the NFL is very identical to Brady’s first four years in the NFL. Both came into the league as back-ups to veteran quarterbacks in their first season, then both became the starting quarterbacks in their second year in the league. They both made the pro-bowl in their second season then, went to two super bowls in the first four years of their career.

No wonder why these two have been getting compared to each other all season. Many are now calling Mahomes the baby G.O.A.T or a G.O.A.T in the making. All I can say is win or lose, the Chiefs will become the next dynasty in football. Even if they lose on Sunday, the Chiefs will be back. This will not be the last time you will see them in the Super Bowl.

As for the betting part of the Super Bowl, which is a very important part of the big game every year. Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs will go into Sunday’s affair as a three-point favorite over the Bucs. This will only be the second time in Tom Brady’s 10 super bowl appearances where his team is the underdog (Super bowl 36 Patriots vs. Rams). However, you can never count out Tom Brady and according to Draftkings, the public is leaning towards Tampa Bay covering the spread at +3.

This is a battle between the Chiefs’ high flying offense and the Buccaneers, who had the sixth-ranked defense in the NFL this season. I expect this game to be high scoring and close. If you are betting, I highly recommend taking the Chiefs team total points over which is 30.5 and/or the Chiefs -3 in the point spread.

Another smart bet would be to take the over on the game which is currently at 56 total points. As Big Cat from Barstool would say “life is too short to bet the under”  so take the over in this game.

Player prop bets are very popular, especially during the Super Bowl. Here are some of my picks for player props that I might or will definitely take on Sunday.

Mike Evans TB WR: first-half touchdown +250

Chris Godwin TB WR: Scores a touchdown +145

Travis Kelce TE KC: first-half touchdown +160

Patrick Mahomes QB KC: Rushing touchdown +225

Tom Brady QB TB: over 2.5 passing touchdowns on game +145

Clyde Edwards-Helarie RB KC: score a Touchdown +190

Last but not least, my final score prediction will be the Kansas City Chiefs coming out on top 35-27 with Patrick Mahomes becoming the MVP for the second time and the Chiefs winning back-to-back titles.
