Jared's Super Bowl Pick: In a Brady vs Mahomes shootout, can the Buccaneers prevail over the Chiefs?
Super Bowl: Chiefs (16-2) vs Bucs (14-5), 6:30 pm EST from Tampa Bay on CBS.
Chiefs (-3) BUCCANEERS (56.5)
Jared’s Pick: Chiefs
Breakout Player: TE Travis Kelce
Although, the Buccaneers defense did let up 26 points to the Packers, and Kansas City can put up more points than the Packers did, I think Tampa Bay can keep this game close. Tampa Bay’s defense is having an outstanding season, but there are too many weapons on this Chiefs offense. The biggest concern for the Chiefs is the absence of their two starting offensive tackles. With the Buccaneers having arguably the best pass rush in the league, the Chiefs are going to have to contain Tampa Bay’s edge rushers. Kansas City’s defense is also going to have to step up against Tom Brady and his offense. This offense is also loaded with a ton of weapons who can give the Chiefs a hard time. I expect Brady and Patrick Mahomes to have big days and the game to be a shootout, but the Chiefs should come out on top.
