Super Bowl LV Championship: Pre-Game Analysis And Odds Preview

Hits: 17

Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida, is now set and ready for the Super Bowl LV finale. NFC’s Tampa Bay Buccaneers will battle it out against the AFC and Super Bowl defending champions, the Kansas City Chiefs. This is the first time in a long time that the Bucs are playing in the finals with a home-field advantage. 

These two teams have successfully punched in a ticket to the finals after making an impressive run in the regular season. The Chiefs have made the most number of wins in the AFC playoff and won all their postseason games. On the other hand, the Bucs were able to make it to the finals after striking triumphantly at Wildcard Week and Semis. 

Now that the 2020 NFL season is about to conclude in two days, the football community will see if the Chiefs can win the Lombardi twice in a row, or the Tampa Bay Buccaneers will end their 18-year drought of missing the Super Bowl title. As you get ready for the big game, here’s everything you should know about the Super Bowl LV finale.

Who Will Represent The Super Bowl LV Finale? 

The Super Bowl LV Finale is represented by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers versus the Kansas City Chiefs. After 18 years of missing the final stage, the Bucs are now a step away from clinching their Super Bowl title.  It will only be their second appearance in the NFL finals franchise and the first group to wrestle in their home court. 

While the Chiefs are making their fourth appearance in the final rounds. If they won, they got a back-to-back title and the eight-team in NFL history to earn two consecutive Lombardi’s. This is also the best season for the Chiefs as they won 14 games during the playoffs, which is the most number of victories that an NFL team has ever got. 

How Did Each Team Get In The Finals? 

It’s no stranger that the Kansas City Chiefs are able to lock-in a spot in the Super Bowl LV finals. They have dominated the AFC with a 14-2 finish, which is the best accomplishment in the season so far. Patrick Mahomes’s opportunistic drive to lead the team and explosive scores are given by Travis Kelce, Tyreek Hill, and Mecole Hardman let them fend off their rivals.

On the flip side, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers entered the 2020 NFL season with full confidence and well-equipped armies. After they surprisingly traded Tom Brady from the Pats, they created rumors right away.  Despite getting an inconsistent ride in the playoffs, the Bucs conquered the postseason, including a huge win over the Packers at the semis. 

How Did Their Last Meet-Up Look Like? 

In Week 12 Playoffs, the Kansas City Chiefs met the Tampa Bay Buccaneers with oozing confidence. Patrick Mahomes was in good shape, letting Brady taste the bitterness of his own medicine. The team went up early in the first half which they ran a 17-0 lead. Aside from that, Tyreek Hill did his job creating a huge score gap forcing the Bucs to hustle harder. 

In the late game, Tom Brady made miracles in blowing-up big touchdown scores. With this, they pushed an overtime game, which made the games more exciting. But, Brady’s focus had gotten out of the way as the younger Patrick Mahomes, and his troops ended the match with a 27-24 game run. 

When, Where, And Who Will Perform At The Super Bowl?

Aside from the two competing teams, the halftime show is the most awaited part of the program. Despite a limited audience in the field, the Canadian band “The Weekend” will entertain the Super Bowl finale show. 

Also, this is the third time that the Super Bowl will host the finals at Raymond James Stadium. All employees, NFL staff, and players should undergo testing before getting into the venue. The NFL organization imposes stricter health protocols and social distancing inside the venue to avoid the COVID-19 from spreading. 

How Do The Odds Look Like? 

Accomplishing three victories ahead of the Bucs, the Kansas City Chiefs are taking the betting games’ favorite odds. Aside from that, they are the defending champions, and when it comes to the Money Line and Spread betting, they got the most impressive lines. 

On the other hand, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers will take the underdog odds. Taking these odds doesn’t mean they got no chance to win over the Chiefs. As a bettor, you have to be keen on observing both teams’ line movements to pick the best group to wager. 

Takeaway 

Without further ado, the Super Bowl LV finale will take over this weekend, and surely all eyes are on this event. After surviving tough scheduling and opening rounds, the 2020 NFL season boils down to this most awaited moment. As the championship game takes place, don’t attempt to blink your eyes and see if the Chiefs are making a historic Super Bowl victory or the Bucs will fire unstoppable bullets to send them to defeat.
