The moment has finally come: Super Bowl LV is here. It’ll be the Tampa Bay Buccaneers playing a rare home game as they take on the defending champion Kansas City Chiefs with the winner hoisting the Lombardi Trophy. For the Buccaneers, they find themselves back at Raymond James Stadium after winning three road playoff games in a row, including a victory in the NFC title game against MVP winner Aaron Rodgers and his Green Bay Packers at Lambeau Field. As for the Chiefs, they took down arguably the hottest team in football in the Buffalo Bills in the AFC Championship Game and are now looking to become the first team since the 2003-04 Patriots to win back-to-back titles.
Super Bowl LV is almost here, and you can watch it for free on the CBS Sports App.
Here, we’re going to dive into all the different betting angles that this game has to offer and tell you our experts’ take from a gambling scope. We’ll also get an assist from our friends over at SportsLine, who have put together a fantastic and in-depth guide to all the Super Bowl LV player props. We will highlight a few below, but check out the full 26-page guide here.
“For most of this season, this Kansas City team didn’t look as dominant as it did last year. But the Chiefs amped it up big time against the Bills. When Patrick Mahomes is cooking, they are almost impossible to stop. We know the Bucs and defensive coordinator Todd Bowles love to blitz, but that’s suicide against Mahomes, who is the best in the league against the blitz. Injuries to both starting tackles for the Chiefs could mean less blitzing is needed, but I still think the Bucs will be true to who they are, which is an attack defense. That could and should mean a lot of big plays. — Pete Prisco on how Kansas City edges out a 35-30 win over the Bucs.
“The only thing more impressive than Andy Reid off the bye is Patrick Mahomes off the bye. In his career as a starter, not only is Mahomes 7-0 coming off a bye, but the Chiefs have averaged 35.7 points per game in those seven wins. In Mahomes’ career, the Chiefs have also averaged 33.3 points per game when playing a team for the second time during a season. I think what I’m trying to say here is that the Chiefs are going to score a lot of points and I’m not sure the Buccaneers are going to be able to keep up. The Chiefs have a chance to become the NFL’s first repeat champion in 16 years and I think they’re going to pull it off. ” — John Breech, who is 16-2 picking Chiefs games this year — on why he likes them by a touchdown against Tampa Bay.
In his bold predictions piece for Super Bowl LV, CBS Sports’ Cody Benjamin has Tom Brady and Mahomes combining for 800 (!) yards and six touchdown passes. To read the rest of Cody’s bold predictions (plus a prediction for this game), click here.
“While the rare home-field advantage should help the Bucs, they also have a few intriguing trends leaning their way. Teams entering the Super Bowl with a worse record than their opponent have won 10 of the past 12 games. Tampa Bay went 11-5 over the regular season while K.C. claimed the No. 1 seed in the AFC at 14-2. The Chiefs had a tremendously successful season in terms of their actual record, but they went 8-10 ATS, which is currently tied for the second-worst cover percentage entering the Super Bowl. Teams who have previously entered the Super Bowl multiple games below .500 ATS lost (1997 Packers, 1979 Rams). ” — Tyler Sullivan explains why he likes the Buccaneers to edge out a 33-27 victory.
SportsLine’s legendary handicapper Hammerin’ Hank Goldberg enters Super Bowl LV on a 51-34 record on his NFL best bets over the past year-and-a-half. For this matchup, he has three best bets that he is coveting, including the “huge factor” why the Chiefs will not win this game. To find out what that is along with his other best bets for Super Bowl LV, head on over the SportsLine.
“The over/under has dropped a full point from the 57 points it opened at. Both of these offenses have the potential to put up points in a hurry, but I’m not so sure that will happen come Sunday. Interestingly enough, the total was also 56 points the first time these teams met, yet they combined for just 51 points. Six of the past seven Super Bowls with a total of 50-plus points have stayed under dating to 2001, and with bad weather in the forecast, it’s hard for me not to lean toward the under.” — Jordan Dajani on why he’s leaning toward the Under for this matchup.

Best prop picks
Via SportsLine’s 26-page player prop guide for Super Bowl LV
Patrick Mahomes total passing yards: Under 327.5 (-115). Mahomes has topped 330 yards in just seven of his 17 games this season and has gone under that total in four straight, including both postseason games. He hasn’t thrown for more than 325 yards in any of his seven career postseason games.
Travis Kelce anytime touchdown: Yes (-162). Kelce scores a touchdown in 70% of our simulations, and with a price of -162 needing a player to have a 62% chance of scoring a touchdown, the Yes is a quality value play.
Chris Godwin total receiving yards: Under 71.5 (-110). Our projections have a slight lean on the Under in this prop with a projected total of 66 yards. Antonio Brown’s absence in the NFC Championship Game allowed Godwin to top 100 yards for just the second time all season.
Tom Brady total passing yards: Under 296.5 (-115). Brady is expected to struggle some against a Chiefs pass rush that looked great in the AFC Championship Game win over the Bills. He threw for well over 300 yards in four straight games heading into the divisional-round matchup against the Saints but hasn’t reached that mark in either of his past two.
Super Bowl LV is a battle between two of the most dangerous teams in the NFL, not only because of their presence in the NFL’s season finale, but because of how they got there. The Kansas City Chiefs, who won it all in 2019 with one of the league’s most explosive offenses, are up against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, who air it out with as much gusto as anyone under the guidance of coach Bruce Arians. While the teams themselves have all kinds of intrigue, we all know the biggest reason people will be tuning in this Super Bowl Sunday: the quarterbacks. Rarely are we gifted such a high-profile showdown as this: Tom Brady versus Patrick Mahomes, the six-time champion against the reigning champion.
As we prepare for Brady versus Mahomes under the bright lights of Tampa’s Raymond James Stadium, we’ve got everything you need to know about their matchup, from each QB’s postseason resume and Super Bowl record to how they’ve fared in head-to-head matchups. Buckle up, and get ready for arguably the most thrilling signal-caller showdown of the year.
Physically speaking, Brady and Mahomes aren’t all too different in terms of size; neither is especially big, while Brady is a bit leaner. Their physical similarities, however, probably stop there. Mahomes is not a burner on the ground, clocking a 4.8-second 40-yard dash coming out of college, but the statuesque Brady has never been even a remote threat to run the ball. Correspondingly, Mahomes has made a name for himself as a reactionary big-play machine, using his mobility, effortless arm strength and unmatched penchant for acrobatic throws to post gaudy numbers. Brady, on the other hand, has lasted more than two decades mostly for his talent between the ears — a masterful attention to detail that’s kept him in shape, in command and rarely flustered as a “point guard”-style QB.
Neither Brady nor Mahomes came into the NFL with especially elite expectations. The Chiefs traded up to draft Mahomes 10th overall, but his Texas Tech resume was not the thing of superstars, with many scouts concerned about seemingly reckless ball-handling in a favorable offense. Mahomes also spent almost his entire rookie year on the bench behind Alex Smith. Brady, meanwhile, was even more of an afterthought, opening his rookie season as a No. 4 QB, playing just one game and only seeing the field extensively the following year because of a serious injury to starter Drew Bledsoe. Now, 20 years later, Brady is the furthest thing from an underdog thanks to his record-breaking, future Hall of Fame career, and Mahomes is unanimously one of the best QBs in today’s game.
