Today on our Super Bowl week gambling coverage, it's all about points. I'm going to break down the game total and who I think has a good chance to score the first touchdown.
When we're talking about points, of course, the first thing we need to check is the forecast for Sunday.
Yikes. Not good for the over. This is definitely something we need to monitor for the rest of the week.
As of now, the over/under is set at 57. That's a little high for my liking, but whenever the Chiefs play we all expect points. The weather has me a little concerned for now.
The last time these two teams played back in week 12, they combined for a total of 51 points. We all know the Bucs are a different team since that matchup. Ever since week 15, Tampa Bay has scored at least 30 points in every game.
With how quickly the Chiefs can score on offense, I LOVE the over. It's the Super Bowl! Honestly, if you bet the under and want more defense, you're just a loser. I'm an unselfish gambler. I gamble in the best interest of everyone. I don't care if we get defense or offense because I'm watching the game regardless. It's for the common fan that doesn't want a repeat of Super Bowl 53.
Also, how do you bet the under in any game Patrick Mahomes is playing? The last time these teams squared up, Mahomes and Tyreek Hill SHREDDED the Bucs secondary.
Pending on the weather, I expect points, points, and more points. It's the Super Bowl for God's sake. You know Reid and Arians are going to be putting out their best plays for their stud QB's to make.
FIRST TD SCORER
This is always a tricky one.
I like Tyreek Hill and Travis Kelce at +600 for obvious reasons. I like Mike Evans and Chris Godwin at +1000 and +1300 too.
There's one guy that I can't keep my eyes off though.
I could see the Bucs get the ball first and Brady marching them down the field. If they get inside the five, we're either getting a Brady sneak or Fournette punch in. For some reason, Fournette plays his best on the biggest stage. Well, it doesn't get bigger than the Super Bowl!
For the Chiefs, I like Mecole Hardman at +1700. Hill and Kelce are going to get the attention all week, but Hardman is a huge threat in that offense. With blazing speed, he can easily burn one of these Bucs corners for a TD. I expect one or two big-time plays from Mecole Hardman this Sunday.
