Super Bowl LV Recap

Tampa Bay was the first-ever team to play betting on Super Bowl matchup at home.  Of course, the downside of that was COVID-19 forced a limited crowd at Raymond James Stadium.  A game for the ages was expected.  Instead, it was utter one-sided domination by the Buccaneers.

Quarterback Patrick Mahomes heads a Chiefs offense labeled as unstoppable.  Yet Tampa Bay suffocated the Chiefs attack.  Kansas City never saw the end zone.  Instead, the Chiefs settled for three field goals.  Mahomes was under intense Tampa Bay defensive pressure all game.  His injury battered offensive line was rendered helpless.  In sum, Tampa intercepted Mahomes twice and limited him to 26/49 passing for a pedestrian 270 yards.

Contrarily, Tom Brady was 21/29 for 201 yards and three touchdowns in the win.  Brady was named the game’s MVP.  However, the entire Tampa Bay defense could share that honor.

Looking Ahead to Super Bowl LVI

The Buccaneers exposed Kansas City’s Super Bowl betting odds weaknesses.   Tom Brady and the Bucs exploited the Chiefs defense throughout the day.  Kansas City is the Super Bowl LVI futures favorite based on branding.  Mahomes and two consecutive Super Bowls enthrall the masses.

Green Bay was the top seed in the NFC.  And the Packers are much more popular with the masses than Tampa Bay. That is why the Pack is a second choice to win Super Bowl LVI.  But Green Bay, like Kansas City, was exposed by the Buccaneers in the NFC Championship Game.  Green Bay’s defense proved to be nowhere near championship caliber.  Further, MVP quarterback Aaron Rodgers was under par.  Accordingly, the loss calls into question his ability to carry a Super Bowl betting winner.
