Mahomes vs Jimmy G Super Bowl LIV Props

Mahomes vs Jimmy G Super Bowl LIV Props

The big game this weekend features two first time Super Bowl starters in Patrick Mahomes and Jimmy Garoppolo. Mahomes is the reigning NFL MVP and was a possession away from a Super Bowl appearance last year. Jimmy G has won two Super Bowl rings as Tom Brady’s backup but hasn’t seen any meaningful playoff action until this season. Which QB will lead their team to a Super Bowl win?

Mahomes vs Jimmy G Super Bowl LIV Props

No matter if you prefer the strong-armed Mahomes and his penchant for firing off prolific TD passes or you prefer the more, ‘game manager-like’ Jimmy G, you’re going to have a great chance to cash in on both quarterbacks’ Super Bowl 54 props odds thanks to the fun-filled insight that you’re about to get.

Patrick Mahomes Super Bowl LIV Player Props Odds

Total Pass Attempts: 35.5

Let me ‘keep it 100’ by saying that his figure is super difficult to predict. Mahomes averaged 34,5 passes per game this season and he’s thrown an identical 35 passes in both of Kansas City’s playoff games this postseason. Having topped 35 passes in just six games this season, I’m going with the Under.

Total Completions: 23.5

Mahomes averaged 22.7 completions per game this season while completing more than 23.5 passes seven times. Mahomes has gone an eerily identical 23 of 35 in both of Kansas City’s playoff games this postseason. This time though, I’m going with the Over as I expect Mahomes to go 24 of 34 in Super Bowl LIV.

Total Passing Yards: 299.5

Mahomes has thrown for over 299.5 yards eight times in 14 starts this season while going 1-1 against this figure in the playoffs. With the 49ers running the ball a bunch in Super Bowl LIV to keep Mahomes on the sidelines, I’m going with the under here.

Total TD Passes: 1.5

Mahomes tossed at least two TD passes nine times this season while throwing five against Houston in the divisional round and three more against Tennessee in the AFC Championship. Stingy defense or not, Mahomes is tossing at least two TD’s in Super Bowl LIV.

Total Interceptions: 0.5

Despite the fact that he throws the ball a lot, Mahomes definitely isn’t a turnover-producing machine. With 11 career TD passes and just one interception in four playoff games, I say the likelihood that Mahomes tosses on in Super Bowl 54 is pretty damned low.

Jimmy Garoppolo Super Bowl LIV Player Props Odds

Total Pass Attempts: 29.5

Hahaha. Seriously? While Jimmy G threw at least 30 passes six times during the regular season, it’s clear that Kyle Shanahan has found his best method for success is to limit Garoppolo’s pass attempts as evidenced by the fact that he passes just 19 times against Minnesota in the divisional round and a stunning eight times against Green Bay in the NFC Championship.

Total Completions: 20.5

Uh…yeah…again…it’s not happening. Only six times has San Francisco’s franchise quarterback completed at least 21 passes this season. Play the Under here folks and keep it moving!

Total Passing Yards: 240.5

While Garoppolo has thrown for at least 241 yards 10 times this season, he hasn’t passed for more than 131 yards in the playoffs. Hell no…he won’t go – over this passing yards total in Super Bowl 54 against a Chiefs pass defense that has been absolutely rock-solid in the second half of the season.

Total TD Passes: 1.5

Jimmy G has tossed at least two TD passes seven times this season, but the odds are against him doing so against the Chiefs in Super Bowl 54. Nope, not gonna’ happen!

Total Interceptions: 0.5

Garoppolo tossed at least one interceptions in 11 games this season while finishing with a career-high 13 overall. He tossed one against Minnesota in the divisional round but didn’t throw one against the Packers in the NFC Championship, mostly because Kyle Shanahan wouldn’t let him pass the ball. Still, I like superstar defensive back Tyrann Mathieu to pick him off in Super Bowl LIV.

Super Bowl MVP Odds:  Mahomes +100, Jimmy Garoppolo +200

Unless Jimmy G throws a luck, game-winning TD pass, he’s almost certainly not going to be the reasons to 49ers pull off the upset over the favored Chiefs in Super Bowl 54. However, Patrick Mahomes is the prohibitive MVP favorite for a reason. Kansas City’s high-scoring offense runs through him! If anyone gets my vote here, it’s Patrick ‘Ma-homeboy’!

Super Bowl LIV Betting Stats & Trends

Super Bowl LIV Betting Stats & Trends

A bird in hand might be worth more than two in the bush, but you could have all three feathery friends when Super Bowl LIV goes down live from hard Rock Cafe on Sunday, February 2, thanks to the multitude of insightful Super Bowl stats and trends that you’re about to get.

Super Bowl 54 Betting Stats & Trends To Consider

Whether you like the Kansas City Chiefs to take care of business as the slight favorite or you prefer the underdog San Francisco 49ers, you’re going to be able to make the most out all of your Super Bowl 54 wagers thanks to the ton of insightful Super Bowl stats and trends you’re about to get. Now, let’s rock and roll.

Forget The Super Bowl Spread!

Did you know, that, just six times in Super Bowl history has the favorite won the game straight up but failed to cover the chalk? Well, it’s true and I’m ancient enough to remember them all (2009, 2005, 2004, 1996, 1989 and 1976).

Straight-up Super Bowl Winner Also Covers The Spread!

Super Bowl betting favorites are 35-17 straight up (SU), which is good news for all of you Chiefs betting backers out there! The SU winner of the annual season-ending finale has also covered the spread in each of the last 10 Super Bowls.

Recent Super Bowl ATS Betting Trends

Did You Know the last half-dozen Super Bowl have alternated between favorites and underdogs bringing home the bacon? Last year, New England won and covered the chalk as a 2.5-point favorite, so I guess that bodes well for the underdog Niners. Oh, and speaking of underdogs, their bite has been worse than their bark as dogs have covered the spread in 12 of the last 18 Super Bowls. In the current playoff format which has been in existence since 2002, dogs have gone 11-6 ATS.

AFC or NFC?

Now, when it comes to getting it done by conferences, teams representing the AFC have cashed in five times in the last seven Super Bowls. Believe it or not, teams from the AFC have been favored in each of the last three Super Bowls and five times in the last half-dozen overall. If you want to get a little bit more historical, then you should know that AFC teams have been favored in 14 of the last 17 Super Bowls while NFC teams were favored in 15 of 19 Super Bowls before that.

When it comes to the Super Bowl point spread, eight straight Super Bowl have had a favorite listed at 3 points or less while only one Super Bowl hs had favorites of 1-point (1981) and one went off as a Pick ‘Em (2014). I addition to that fun-filled fact, the Super Bowl participant that had the fewest wins has gone 15-2-1 ATS in the last 18 Super Bowls overall. Five of the last 10 Super Bowls featured teams with at least 12 victories with the underdog going 4-1 SU during the span.

Showing the Super Bowl Over/Under Total Some Love!

Hey, let’s not forget about the Super Bowl Over/Under game total. Ten Super Bowls have had Over/Under totals in the 50s with the Under record going 7-2-1 in those contests, including last season’s 13-3 win by New England over the LA Rams. If you’re expecting a high-scoring Super Bowl 54, then you should know that the Over is 5-2 in the last seven Super Bowl matchups.

Super Bowl MVP Watch

A dozen quarterbacks have won the Super Bowl MVP in the last 20 years. Four defensive players and four wide receivers have also taken home the MVP award and believe it or not, no running back has taken home the Super Bowl MVP award since Terrell Davis did so for the Broncos back in 1997.

Player Position Battle!

Want to know which position has the best chance of finding their way into the end zone first in Super Bowl 54? Then you should know that six wide receivers in the last 10 years have found the end zone first. Despite their MVP drought, running backs have scored the first touchdown of the game in two of the last three Super Bowls. No tight end has caught the first touchdown of a Super Bowl since 2004 and no quarterback has scored the first TD since Pittsburgh’s Ben Roethlisberger rumbled into the end zone first back in 2005.

Whew…so there you have it. A ton of Super Bowl stats and trends that should help you in your quest for Super Bowl betting success!

Super Bowl LIV San Francisco 49ers Props

Super Bowl LIV San Francisco 49ers Props

The San Francisco 49ers might be slight underdogs versus the Chiefs heading into Super Bowl 54, but that fact shouldn’t deter you from trying to cash in on the multitude of value-packed props odds surrounding the NFC Champions as they get set for this season’s NFL championship showcase.

Super Bowl LIV San Francisco 49ers Props

49ers Player to Score First Touchdown: Raheem Mostert +250

While it’s taken veteran running back Raheem Mostert five years to make a name for himself, the former Purdue University is definitely in the spotlight heading into Super Bowl 54 after rushing for a stellar 220 yards and four scores on 29 carries in San Francisco’s 37-20 blowout win over Green Bay in the NFC Championship game almost two weeks ago. The Niners are a run-first team that finished the regular season ranked second in rushing and Kansas City’s run defense has been mediocre at best this season. If the Niners are going to have any hope of beating Patrick Mahomes and the explosive Chiefs in Super Bowl 54, then they’ll look to run the ball early and often in order to keep Mahomes on the sidelines. Mostert has scored at least one touchdown in seven of San Francisco’s last eight games, making this this props odds wager one of the easiest to predict. Raheem Mostert is the pick to score Frisco’s first touchdown in Super Bowl 54.

George Kittle Super Bowl LIV Receiving Yards: 61

While pro Bowl tight end George Kittle has garnered a lot of love and many believe he is the best tight end in the game today, the third-year Pro Bowler has only managed to top 61 receiving yards five time in San Francisco’s last 10 games. With Kittle going three straight games of recording 19 receiving yards or less and Kansas City’s pass defense now one of the best in the league, I like the Chiefs from keeping Kittle from topping what looks like a relatively manageable 61-yard figure.

Raheem Mostert Super Bowl LIV Rushing Yards: 82.5

Mostert rushed for 772 yards and eight scores in 16 regular season games while averaging a stellar 5.6 yards per carry. However, Mostert only topped 82 rushing yards twice in the regular season and although he comes in off a jaw-dropping 220 yard, four-touchdown effort against Green bay in the NFC Championship, I’m banking on Kansas City stacking the box to stop Mostert while daring the mostly mediocre Jimmy Garoppolo to beat them through the air. I’m going with the under here, based simply on Mostert’s entire 18 games this season.

Deebo Samuel Super Bowl LIV Receiving Yards: 53.5

San Francisco’s impressive rookie wideout had 802 receiving yards and three scores in his debut season while topping 53.5 receiving yards five times, including the playoffs. While Deebo Samuel has been limited to 42 and 46 receiving yards in the 49er’s pair of playoff games this postseason, he’s also topped the century mark three times this season and I believe the Chiefs will focus a lot of their pass defense on stopping the Niners’ leading receiver in the playoffs. This one’s gonna’ be close, but I’m going with the over – just barely.

49ers Total Points Scored In Super Bowl LIV: 27 +790

While the Niners has only managed to score exactly 27 points once this season, it did come in the NFC divisional round against Minnesota. The Niners have scored 28 points once this season and 26 points on one other occasion while scoring 24 points twice. San Fran would like nothing better than to use their powerful rushing attack to chew up time and keep Patrick Mahomes off the field and that means they should end up somewhere in the 20s, like exactly on 27 points. You heard it here first!

Super Bowl LIV Kansas City Chiefs Props

Super Bowl LIV Kansas City Chiefs Props

Will speedster wide receiver Tyreek Hill have a game for the ages in Super Bowl 54? Could fellow Pro Bowl tight end Travis Kelce make his presence felt against San Francisco’s stingy defense or will the unheralded rusher Damien Williams be the driving force behind a potential Chiefs win in Super Bowl 54?

Kansas City Chiefs Super Bowl LIV Props

Whether you like the favored Kansas City Chiefs to reign supreme or come up just short of helping beloved head coach Andy Reid win his first Super Bowl title, there’s value all around if you plan on making a few fun-filled Super Bowl LIV props odds wagers on the AFC champions as they get set for Sunday’s season-ending Super Bowl showdown.

Chiefs Player to Score First Super Bowl LIV Touchdown

While Travis Kelce (+300) and Tyreek Hill (+310) are second and third to running back Damien Williams’ (+260) odds to score Kansas City’s first touchdown in Super Bowl 54, I’m going with speedy wideout Sammy Watkins at +600 to bring home the bacon here. This postseason, Watkins is second to Kelce in receptions (9) and just one ahead of Hill. While Kelce has scored a trio of touchdowns this postseason and Hill has added a pair, Watkins has racked up a team-high 190 receiving yards in two games while averaging a stellar 21.1 yards per catch. Watkins hauled in a 60-yard TD strike from Patrick Mahomes in the AFC Championship game and I believe he’s going to find the end zone first for the Chiefs in Super Bowl 54 as San Francisco devotes the vast majority of its defensive attention to the aforementioned trio of Kelce, Hill and Williams!

Tyreek Hill Receiving Yards: 61

Arguably the fastest player in the entire NFL, Hill has had a pair of relatively modest games this postseason. After catching just three passes for 41 yards and no scores in the divisional round, Hill did manage to haul in five passes for 67 yards and two touchdowns against Tennessee in the AFC Championship. While Hill will face some elite coverage against the Niners in Super Bowl 54, I am reminded of Jimmy Johnson’s penchant for fast players. Speed kills and Hill will beat the Niners deep at least once in Super Bowl 54.

Travis Kelce Receiving Yards: 41

The Niners will be focused on keeping the dangerous Kelce in check, but I feel like the Pro Bowler’s Super Bowl receiving yards odds are far too low here, making this wager one of the closer ‘sure-thing props odds bets on the board. After torching Houston for 10 catches for 134 yards and three touchdowns in the divisional round, Tennessee kept Kelce in check by limiting arguably the best pass-catching tight end in the league to just three receptions for 30 yards and no scores. Still, his modest last game leads me to believe that Kelce is going to want to show every0one that he, and not George Kittle, is the best tight end in all of football.

Sammy Watkins Receiving Yards: 50.5

As previously mentioned, Watkins has racked up a stupendous 190 receiving yards in two playoff games for an average of 95 receiving yards per game. Again, Watkins is almost a forgotten man in Kansas City’s explosive offense, but I’m, banking on the former Clemson star making his presence felt in a big way in Super Bowl 54.

Chiefs Total Points Scored: 31 +970

The Chiefs have scored exactly 31 points just once this season and that came in their Week 17 regular season finale against the division rival Chargers. Kansas City has danced all around the 31-point figure by scoring, 30 points, 32 points, 33, points, 34 points and 35 points in the AFC Championship game. Maybe it’s me, but 31 points just feels right to me!

Demi Lovato’s Super Bowl LIV National Anthem

Demi Lovato is no stranger at singing the National Anthem. Her most recent sporting event rendition of the “The Star-Spangled Banner” came at 2017’s Floyd Mayweather-Conor McGregor fight. But let’s put a pin in that. In Game 4 of the 2015 World Series, Lovato belted out the National Anthem in 1 minute and 57 seconds. Her second World Series National Anthem was in Game 5 of the 2011 edition, which also clocked in at under two minutes.

How long will Lavato’s Super Bowl LIV National Anthem last? Lovato’s National Anthem renditions clock in at an average of 1 minute and 57 seconds. Her last two anthems have been her longest.

Colin Kaepernick

This is the 49ers’ first Super Bowl since former QB Colin Kaepernick led San Francisco to the big game in 2013. With his blackballing from the league, will he be mentioned during the Super Bowl? Yes, you can bet on that.

MLB Total 2020 Season Wins

MLB Total 2020 Season Wins

The 2020 MLB season is still months away, however 5Dimes baseball oddsmakers have dropped the opening odds on how many games each MLB team will win in the 2020 season. All but the Houston Astros that is.

MLB Total 2020 Season Wins

Arizona Diamondbacks: 82½

Arizona went 85-77 a year ago but finished a distant 21 games behind the Dodgers in the NL West. Still, the Diamondbacks signed free agent Madison Bumgarner to a five-year, $85 million deal while also adding veteran right-hander Junior Guerra.

Atlanta Braves: 91½

After winning 97 games to claim the NL East title last season, the Braves added veteran southpaw starter Cole Hamels for one year and $18 million while also adding former Giants reliever Will Smith for $39 million over three years and catcher Travis d’Arnaud for two years. The Over is looking good in the ATL!

Baltimore Orioles: 55½

The O’s suffered 108 losses last season, and they could again in 2020. Baltimore’s only offseason moves of consequence if you can call it that, was a trade of Jonathan Villar to Miami and a Rule 5 draft of right-hander Brandon Bailey. Ugh!

Boston Red Sox: 88½

The BoSox went 84-78 last season after winning it all in 2018. Boston added infielder Jose Peraza to a one-year, $3 million deal. Still, rumors persist they could move lefty David Price, among others. Oh yeah, and then there’s that thing where the red Sox now have to find a new manager because of Alex Cora’s cheating ways.

Chicago Cubs: 86½

Chicago underachieved by recording a modest 84 wins a year ago, and the Cubbies didn’t do much of anything this offseason. However, rumors persist that they could move former NL MVP Kris Bryant.

Chicago White Sox: 83½

After winning just 72 games a year ago, the White Sox added catcher Yasmani Grandal on a four-year deal while also acquiring outfielder Nomar Mazara from the Rangers for prospect Steele Walker.

Cincinnati Reds: 83½

Cincy went 75-87 last season but added veteran first baseman Mike Moustakas to the largest free-agent deal in franchise history while selecting 28-year-old outfielder Mark Payton (.334/.400/.653) as the No. 12 pick in the Rule 5 Draft.

Cleveland Indians: 87½

93 wins weren’t enough to overcome Minnesota’s 101 wins in the AL Central last season. The Tribe parted ways with former superstar hurler Corey Kluber and rumors persist that they could move Francisco Lindor.

Colorado Rockies: 74½

The Rockies took a huge step backward from their beautiful 2018 season by going a dismal 71-91 a year ago. To make matters worse, Colorado didn’t do much of anything this offseason except listen to offers for superstar Nolan Arenado.

Detroit Tigers: 56½

Detroit went an awful 47-114 last season but had a great offseason by selecting right-hander Rony Garcia with the No. 1 pick in the Rule 5 draft while signing veteran catcher Austin Romine to a one-year deal.

Houston Astros – No Odds

Since losing to Washington in the 2019 World Series, Houston has been absolutely rocked by the sign-stealing scandal that cost them their GM, manager, and a pair of first and second-round draft picks over the next two MLB drafts. Still, the ‘Stros are stacked, and they could easily contend to win it all again in 2020.

Kansas City Royals: 65½

Kansas City went 59-103 in 2019 but drafted gifted, but oft-injured right-hander Stephen Woods Jr. with the No. 4 pick in the Rule 5 Draft.

Los Angeles Angels: 85½

After winning just 72 games a year ago, the Angels signed former Nats star Anthony Rendon to a $245 million contract over seven years to go along with AL MVP Mike Trout. That addition alone means LA should be better in 2020, though I’m not feeling 86 wins.

Los Angeles Dodgers: 98½

The Dodgers won 106 games last season, but their big offseason moves consisted of signing the unheralded Blake Treinen to a one-year deal. Still, LA is looking good in the watered-down NL west.

Miami Marlins: 64½

Fresh off a 105-loss season, Miami’s big offseason moves were the selection of right-hander Sterling Sharp with the No. 3 pick in the Rule 5 Draft, the signing second baseman Gosuke Katoh to a minor-league deal and the addition of right-handed relief pitcher Yimi Garcia.

Milwaukee Brewers: 83½

The Brewers went 89-73 to finish two games in back of St. Louis in the NL Central last season but made a solid if low-key addition of hurler Josh Lindblom to a three-year deal after he spent the previous two seasons pitching in Korea.

Minnesota Twins: 91½

The Twins won 101 games a year ago to claim the AL Central crown. Minnesota retained veteran right-hander Jake Odorizzi and fellow right-hander Michael Pineda while giving veteran big Bopper Jose Abreu a new, three-year extension.

New York Mets: 86½

New York went 86-76 last season and lost Zack Wheeler to the division-rival Phillies this offseason. The good news is that the Mets signed veteran hurlers Rick Porcello and Michael Wacha in free agency.

New York Yankees: 101½

After winning 103 games to claim the AL East title a year ago, the Yankees made the biggest splash that could be made this offseason by signing superstar right-hander Gerrit Cole away from the Houston Astros.

Oakland Athletics: 89½

The A’s won 97 games last season. Still, their big offseason move was to acquire former Phillies second baseman, Vimael Machin – for cash!

Philadelphia Phillies: 85½

Philly failed to live up to their playoff hopes by going a mediocre 81-81 after signing Bryce Harper to a ridiculous 10-year, $330 million deal, the Phillies signed talented, but oft-injured veteran right-hander Zack Wheeler to a five-year, $118 million deal while also adding former Yankees shortstop Didi Gregorious for one year and $14 million.

Pittsburgh Pirates: 71½

The Pirates went 69-93 last year, and you can expect more of the same after the NL Central cellar-dwellers failed to make a single significant move this offseason.

San Diego Padres: 83½

After going 70-92 to finish last in the NL West, the Padres signed Drew Pomeranz to a four-year deal while acquiring outfielder Trent Grisham and right-hander Zach Davies in a trade with Milwaukee.

San Francisco Giants: 71½

The Giants are coming off an uninspiring 77-85 campaign in 2019, but they added former Angels outfielder Zack Cozart while getting shortstop Will Wilson in the deal. San Francisco also added right-hander Kevin Gausman on a one-year deal worth $9 million even though they saw former staff ace Madison Bumgarner bolt in free agency.

Seattle Mariners: 67½

Seattle’s 68 wins landed them in last place in the NL West last season, and they failed to make any significant moves that could help them surpass that figure in 2020.

St. Louis Cardinals: 88½

St. Louis went 91-71 a year ago to win the NL Central last season. Although they failed to make any real additions this offseason, the Cards did manage to re-sign veteran right-hander Adam Wainwright.

Tampa Bay Rays: 90½

The Rays won a fantastic 96 games to finish second to the Yankees in the AL East. Still, Tampa Bay did add Japanese outfielder Yoshitomo Tsutsugo, veteran Hunter Renfroe and free-agent outfielder Avisail Garcia.

Texas Rangers: 78½

The Rangers went 78-94 last season to finish third in the AL West. Texas added veteran hurler Corey Kluber while signing left-handed reliever Joely Rodriguez to a two-year, $5.5 million deal. The Rangers also added starters Kyle Gibson and Jordan Lyles in free agency.

Toronto Blue Jays: 75½

After going 67-95 to finish fourth in the NL East, the Jays added veteran right-hander Tanner Roark on a two-year, $24 million deal, although they lost starter Rick Porcello.

Washington Nationals: 89½

Despite losing the talented Anthony Tendon, the Nationals re-signed World Series MVP Stephen Strasburg to a seven-year deal worth $245 million while also retaining NLCS MVP Howie Kendrick.

Mahomes Favorite To Win Super Bowl LIV MVP Followed By Garoppolo

Mahomes Favorite To Win Super Bowl LIV MVP Followed By Garoppolo

The Kansas City Chiefs may be slim 1½-point favorites to beat the San Francisco 49ers to win Super Bowl LIV. The Chiefs’ quarterback, however, is the clear-cut betting favorite to be named Super Bowl LIV MVP at +120 (bet $100 to win $120) after two playoff comebacks in a row. The second betting favorite is his counterpart on the 49ers in Jimmy Garoppolo at +350 (bet $100 to win $350), who threw just eight passes last week.

Usually, quarterbacks win the award since they touch the ball the most often. There are anomalies. Last year a wide receiver (Julian Edelman) won the award. Von Miller, linebacker, won it four-years ago.

The star of the NFC Divisional Championship round, running back Raheem Mostert, is the third favorite at +700, making him a great value bet. Last week he single-handedly beat the Packers after rushing 29 times for 220 yards and four touchdowns.

Both teams have top tier tight-ends and are available at a great value. George Kittle is listed at +1100, and Travis Kelce pays +2200. Speedster Tyreek Hill is a +1200 moneyline bet. The top defensive player on the Super Bowl LIV MVP betting board is rookie DE Nick Bosa at +2800.

Super Bowl LIV MVP Odds

  • Patrick Mahomes (QB – Chiefs) +120
  • Jimmy Garoppolo (QB – 49ers) +350
  • Raheem Mostert (RB -49ers) +700
  • George Kittle (TE – 49ers) +1100

Super Bowl LIV Odds Analysis

Before the season started the odds of a 49ers vs Chiefs Super Bowl were +6850. While Kansas City was on top of a lot of people’s lists to make a championship run, San Francisco was a question mark with an unproven roster. Now a Chiefs versus 49ers could very well be the most entertaining and competitive in decades.

Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs managed to reach their first Super Bowl in five decades based largely on the strength of an explosive offense that finished the regular season ranked fifth in passing and an identical fifth in scoring (28.2 ppg). However, while it is KC’s star-studded offense that gets the lion’s share of the national media attention, the Chiefs also have a defense that closed out the regular season ranked an encouraging seventh in points allowed (19.3 ppg). The Chiefs will hit the field in Super Bowl 54 having covered the spread in both of their playoff games this postseason while riding the wave of a 7-1 ATS mark in their last seven games overall.

Kansas City’s first Super Bowl appearance in 50 years ends the third-longest drought in the NFL after the Detroit Lions (62) and New York Jets (51). The Chiefs defeated the Vikings, 23-7, in Super Bowl IV and have reached the AFC Championship game just twice during the span in losing to Buffalo in 1993 and New England last season.

On the other side of the field, the San Francisco 49ers will make their first Super Bowl appearance since 2012, based largely on a stingy defense that finished the regular season ranked first against the pass and eighth in points allowed (19.4 ppg), although the Niners also have an offense that somehow managed to finish second in scoring (29.9 ppg) thanks to well-balanced offense led by quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo. San Francisco ranked second in rushing during the regular season while the Chiefs finished a dismal 26th against the run (128.2 ypg).

Kansas City and San Francisco both won seven of their eight road dates in the regular season while the Chiefs went 10-5-1 ATS and the 49ers went 9-6-1 ATS. The Super Bowl hopefuls last met in Week 3 of the 2018 campaign with Kansas City recording a convincing 38-27 win that day. The Niners lost Jimmy Garoppolo for the remainder of the regular season after suffering a torn ACL in that matchup, but t should be noted that Kansas City led 35-10 at the half before Jimmy G was injured while scoring touchdowns on each of their first five possessions. Kansas City head coach Andy Reid is the winningest head coach in NFL history without a Super Bowl victory.

2021 College Football National Championship Odds

2021 College Football National Championship Odds

The current college football national champions are barely a couple weeks old and here are the top 10 teams I am keeping an eye on during the offseason for a potential championship run next season. Click here fo the latest college football national championship odds.

2021 College Football National Championship Odds

Clemson +250

While the Tigers fell to LSU in this year’s national championship game, Dabo Swinney has built a program that has seen some sustained success for nearly a decade now. No matter which players depart from this year’s team, Clemson still has gifted quarterback Trevor Lawrence leading the way, not to mention another incoming class of elite recruits looking to help the Tigers improve on their jaw-dropping 29-1 record in their last 30 games.

Ohio State +350

The Buckeyes will suffer their fair share of losses from this year’s team, including superstar defensive end Chase Young and star running back J.K. Dobbins. Still, Ohio State has supremely gifted quarterback Justin Fields back under center – and the nation’s top recruiting class on the way.

Alabama +700

For the first time in ages, Nick Saban has more question marks than answers, starting with who his new No. 1 quarterback is going to be next season. Still, Saban has fielded perennially-powerful defenses and just missed out on a berth in this season’s CFP.

Georgia +900

Starting quarterback Jake Fromm, fleet-footed running back D’Andre Swift and offensive lineman Andrew Thomas are all off to the NFL Draft, but Kirby Smart has already found his new starting signal-caller thanks to the transfer of former Wake Forest signal-caller Jamie Newman. There will be some rebuilding going on with the Dawgs, but Smart has proven he can field an elite defense every year no matter who suits up.

LSU +1000

The Tigers have suffered a pair of humongous losses with the departure of Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback Joe Burrow and offensive coordinator Joe Brady who is off to the Carolina Panthers. Those two losses will test seriously test the Tigers in 2020 and keep in mind, no team has won consecutive national championships in the playoff era.

Oklahoma +3000

Does it even matter anymore who’s under center for Lincoln Riley at Oklahoma? While the Sooners will have their fourth new starter under center in as many seasons, Riley has proven to be one of the best offensive minds in all of football. Still, if Oklahoma never manages to learn how to play competent defense, expect the Sooners to be bridesmaids again in 2020.

Notre Dame +3300

Starting quarterback Ian Book will be back under center for Brian Kelly in 2020 and the Fighting Irish have an All-American candidate in linebacker Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah, but when it comes to competing with the likes of elite programs like Clemson, Ohio State and Alabama, the Irish simply don’t have the talent across the board that it will take to win a national championship.

Texas +4000

The Longhorns underachieved in a big way despite starting off the 2019 season ranked in the preseason Top 10. While starting quarterback Sam Ehlinger returns, the Longhorns have a bunch of question marks, particularly on defense, as they incorporate a new offensive play-caller and defensive coordinator in 2020.

Texas A&M +5000

Now, heading into Year 3 of the Jimbo Fisher era, Texas A&M returns star quarterback Kellen Mond and star running back Isaiah Spiller as well as the vast majority of their starters on defense. With Alabama and LSU both having a ton of question marks heading into next season, don’t be surprised to see the Aggies take a step forward in 2020.

Penn State +5000

James Franklin has turned Penn State into a perennial national championship contender that has won 11 games in thee of the last four seasons. Franklin has a new offensive coordinator coming in and a new offensive line coach, but quarterback Sean Clifford returns after his first year as the starter and the Nittany Lions have been elite defensively the past several seasons. Now, if only they can get past Ohio State.

Michigan +5750

Jim Harbaugh has another quarterback battle looming and that just doesn’t look good for a Wolverines program that keeps coming up short, mostly because of the pitiful play they’ve gotten under center since Harbaugh took over. I’ve got at least four Big Ten teams (Ohio State, Penn State, Wisconsin and Minnesota) being better than Michigan in 2020.

Wisconsin +6000

I know the Badgers are losing superstar running back Jonathan Taylor to the NFL Draft, but head coach Paul Chryst has fielded an elite defense every year since taking over and starting quarterback Jack Coan should be better in his second year as a start in 2020, even though the loss of Taylor worries me.
