Do you feel you know which groups can meet in Super Bowl 54 at Miami, Florida? Thanks to a internet sportsbook, you can put your money where your mouth is.
According to 5Dimes, the New England Patriots and New Orleans Saints are the likeliest teams to bump in the Super Bowl on February 2, 2020 at +2400 chances. The Patriots versus the Los Angeles Rams (+2750), the Rams vs the Kansas City Chiefs (+2825), the Chiefs versus the Saints (+2825) and a Super Bowl 52 rematch between the Patriots and Philadelphia Eagles (+2875) round out the top five in the store.
Considering that the Patriots will be the +700 faves to win the Super Bowl, it is no surprise to see them so high in this respect. Tom Brady and business look five times as the AFC representatives in the top 20 on the list — tied together with the Saints for the many appearances. At the Brady/Bill Belichick age, the Patriots have been to the Super Bowl twice times while winning it about six occasions.
The Rams’ first appearance in the big game since 2001 could not have gone much worse, as L.A. fought to find anything going into a 13-3 blow to the Patriots in February.
But the Rams have one of the brightest young coaches in the NFL at Sean McVay, a star running back in Todd Gurley, an emerging signal-caller at Jared Goff plus a stacked defense headlined by reigning Defensive Player of the Year Aaron Donald. Each the bits to get back to the championship match are all not there.
My pick to come out of the AFC is unquestionably the Chiefs. A perennial contender at the summit, Kansas City had a completely different look in 2018 due to the explosion of Patrick Mahomes. Mahomes, who claimed the MVP Award for his leading campaign, had one of the most remarkable seasons we have observed from a quarterback in recent memory and will be faked to shred defenses to the next decade-plus.
The 23-year-old gunslinger has a litany of weapons at his disposal, and Chiefs general manager patched up his leaky defense in the offseason by earning Steve Spagnuolo as the defensive coordinator and signing up security Tyrann Mathieu and cornerback Bashaud Breeland.
The Chiefs defense ranked 31st in the league last year with 6,488 yards allowed, but the unit will probably find a significant improvement this year. Together with Mahomes lightning things up on offense and the protection shooting a leap, don’t be surprised if Kansas City leaves a Super Bowl run. A few of their Super Bowl matchups I enjoy value-wise are against the Green Bay Packers (+4725) and Atlanta Falcons (+5850).
