Super Bowl LV - Odds and Tips

The Super Bowl is always one of the most-watched sporting fixtures of the year, but there's never been a spectacle quite like the game that we are expected to see on Sunday evening. There are no shortage of stories coming into the game, as Tom Brady looks for a record-extended seventh Super Bowl ring for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers against the reigning champions, the Kansas City Chiefs.  We will take a deeper dive into both teams competing this weekend, which will allow gamblers to examine all aspects before wagering on the various types of football bets available for Super Bowl LV.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers Making History

Many American Football fans have always believed that the Super Bowl has a curse for teams that could have home-field advantage. However, the curse has been effectively ended this season, as the Tampa Bay Buccaneers will be the first team to play in the Super Bowl with home-field advantage at the Raymond James Stadium. The Bucs were heavily expected to be among the main contenders, according to the Super Bowl betting online markets, when they announced the signing of Tom Brady in the off-season, but questions were asked after a sticky start to the quarterback’s career at the Bucs.

Bruce Arians side have been faultless throughout the playoffs so far, as they booked their spot in the NFL Conference game after wins against Washington and the New Orleans Saints. The win over the Green Bay Packers in the conference game wasn’t the best Brady performance by any stretch of the imagination, but the mentality shift that he has imposed on his teammates has been profound for all to see. It isn’t just a one-man show with the Bucs, as they have a number of high-quality offensive weapons.  Mike Evans, Antonio Brown and Chris Godwin are all All-Pro wide receivers, while Rob Gronkowski has experience on the biggest stage alongside Brady. There will also be history made on Sunday, as the Bucs have two women coaches in their team. Maral Javadifar is the assistant strength and conditioning coach, while Lori Locust is the assistant defensive line coach. There will be confidence among the Bucs fans that they can win a first Super Bowl since 2003, and the driving force will be Brady. However, all the top online sportsbooks still make them outsiders.

Can the Defending Champions Win Again in 2021?

The Kansas City Chiefs stand on the cusp of creating history of their own on Sunday evening, as they will be looking to become the first team to win back-to-back Super Bowls since Brady led the New England Patriots to consecutive glory in 2005. Kansas City have remained the betting online favourites throughout the season, and there are clear reasons behind why they have been the shortest-priced team throughout the season in the Canada sportsbooks Super Bowl LV betting markets.

The man of the moment for the Chiefs remains Patrick Mahomes, who many have claimed is the only realistic contender to ever match the Super Bowl record that has been set by Brady. Mahomes rose to superstardom last year after he was the MVP in the Chiefs victory over the San Francisco 49ers.  The 25-year-old threw two touchdowns in that victory for 286 yards. He was the man for the big occasion last year, and their hopes of regaining the title will once again rest on his shoulders. However, if the game is decided away from the two star quarterbacks, then the Chiefs would be extremely confident that they have the edge. They have an embarrassment of riches in the offense, with Travis Kelce, Mecole Hardman and Tyreek Hill the leading stars. Kelce and Hill have been the two standout men for the Chiefs throughout the season, and both will be the main targets for Mahomes to score first downs on Sunday night.  Stopping that offensive dominance is the huge challenge ahead for the Bucs. If they can’t cut off the supply line, then their chances of Super Bowl glory may be over before the second half even gets underway.  

Super Bowl LV Prediction

The football betting online markets make the Chiefs the clear favourites to successfully reclaim the Vince Lombardi Trophy this year. However, the fact that Brady will be leading the Bucs has added intrigue to these markets. Brady’s dominance in the Super Bowl throughout his career means that the Bucs have experience within their ranks of what is required on the biggest night of the year.  However, the depth that the Chiefs have in the offense, combined with their defensive durability means that it will be a big ask for the Bucs. The emphasis could be on what the Chiefs do without the ball on Sunday, and the fact that they allowed the second-fewest receiving yards throughout the season only points to a win for them at both ends of the field.
