The wait is finally over! And of course we’re bringing you a Chiefs Buccaneers free pick.
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers will host the Kansas City Chiefs this evening in Super Bowl LV.
There are some great storylines in this year’s big game, but none bigger than the battle of QBs. Will Patrick Mahomes be able to defeat Tom Brady or will we witness some more Brady magic?
Game: Kansas City Chiefs (16-2, 8-10 ATS) vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (14-5, 11-8 ATS)
When: Sunday, February 7th 2021 at 6:30PM ET
Where: Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, FL
Line: Chiefs -3 Total: 55.5
TV Coverage: CBS
These two teams met during the regular season back in week 12. The Chiefs went into Tampa and won the game by a FG (27-24), so KC will definitely come into this game with confidence.
Mahomes and Tyreek Hill were nearly unstoppable in the first H2H game.
Hill had a monster game, hauling in 13 receptions (15 targets) for 269 yards and 3 TDs. Mahomes finished the game going 37/49 for 462 yards and 1 TD. That can’t happen again.
TB Defense is Key
If the Bucs secondary can’t stop Mahomes at all, this game will be over.
Both of these teams can score points quickly. The Bucs average 30.7 PPG (2nd), while the Chiefs are scoring 29.6 PPG (5th). This game could come down to what defense can get a couple big stops.
Both teams could be getting a starting WR back. Antonio Brown (Bucs) and Sammy Watkins (KC) are both expected to suit up and play, but how productive will they be?
I think just having those two on the field will open up more opportunities for everyone else.
Brady will have to play much better than he did against the Packers. He threw three INTs in the NFC Championship Game and if he throws multiple INTs again, there’s no way they’ll win.
I’ve been going back and forth the last two weeks on this game.
Chiefs Buccaneers Free Pick
At the end of the day, the Chiefs are too tough to stop on offense. Brady didn’t look good against GB and I can see him tossing a couple more INTs once he starts to force things.
Hill is going to have another monster game and look for Travis Kelce to continue dominating. Can you see now which direction my Chiefs Buccaneers free pick is going?
He has been Mahomes’ top target in the playoffs and he’ll see a lot of work tonight.
With hundreds of Super Bowl LV props to bet on, don’t bet your whole stack on full game straight bets. Leave some of the bankroll to have some fun with the props.
Many offer high plus money payouts. My favorite is Kelce to have over 8.5 receptions (+100).
