They did it last year and they'll do it again; we're picking the Kansas City Chiefs to successfully defend the Super Bowl in style. The Chiefs' offensive line is just too dynamic, too quick and will show the world why it's so feared.
With the offensive prowess of both teams, this will be an action-packed Super Bowl. The consensus is that if Tampa are to put up a challenge, they'll have to be firing on all cylinders and score 30+ points; a challenge Tom Brady will relish. We're going for the game to surpass the 56.5 over/under set by bookmakers.
Travis Kelce is the Chiefs' most important player behind Patrick Mahomes. In fact, he must be Mahomes' best friend, being a constant outlet for the young quarterback. He's having as good a season as you can have for a tight end and we think Mahomes will avoid the Bucs' early pass rush and find Kelce in a pocket to kick things off on Sunday.
If you have a good understanding of the game, bet in-play. This will allow you to get a good feeling for the game, and you can then use your knowledge and intuition to make accurate bets on what will happen next.
The Super Bowl can be an emotional affair, especially if your team is playing. Don't let your heart rule your head though, and instead make bets based on facts and knowledge, even if that means betting against your team.
