2020-2021 NFL Season Update

There may have been a few outbreaks along the way, but the coronavirus pandemic did not prevent the 2020-21 NFL season from culminating with Super Bowl LV as planned. On Sunday, February 7, the AFC and NFC champions will face off for the Vince Lombardi trophy, and in this case, we’ll get the bonus of having a home team in the game for the first time in NFL history. It’ll be the Tampa Bay Buccaneers hosting the defending champion Kansas City Chiefs at Raymond James Stadium in a battle between the league’s undisputed GOAT, Tom Brady, and his likely successor, Patrick Mahomes. 

NFL Odds to Win the Super Bowl

A slim 3.5-point spread separates the underdog Bucs and favoured Chiefs on the NFL betting lines, and that could change in either direction as more as more NFL betting comes in. Alternatively, you can focus your betting on NFL moneylines, which have the Chiefs pegged as —170 favourites over the Buccaneers (+150). The 56.5-point total is another good option, especially when combined with your winning pick. 

Kansas City Chiefs (–170)

The Kansas City Chiefs amassed a 14-2 regular season record this season that includes a 27-24 win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 12. That victory saw KC build up a 27-10 lead throughout the first three quarters, with three touchdowns coming from Tyreek Hill, before holding on tight throughout the fourth quarter, when Brady, Mike Evans and the Tampa Bay D unsuccessfully tried to mount a comeback. 

The Chiefs had the No. 1 passing game this season, thanks in part to Travis Kelce and Tyreek Hill. Combine that with Mahomes’ superhuman ability to contort himself in any way needed to make challenging throws while under pressure, and you have all of the ingredients needed for an unstoppable offense. Hopefully their defense can keep up their end of the bargain, like they did in the Buffalo Bills AFC Championship game. 

Tampa Bay Buccaneers (+150)

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have been less consistent than the Kansas City Chiefs this year, but they’ve proven themselves in the playoffs with upsets over the New Orleans Saints and Green Bay Packers after qualifying as a wild card team. Brady is comfortable taking risks and making big plays in times of need, and that has largely paid off for the Bucs. Even when Brady is not performing well, he’s able to lean on the Tampa Bay defense, which helped gloss over the three interceptions he threw in the second half of the NFC Championship game against the Packers.   

If the Brady and the Bucs can repeat their performance from the first half of the NFC Championship game for all four quarters of the Super Bowl, they could surprise the Chiefs and pull the upset in true Brady fashion.
