Looking above, you can see that Kansas City has a +1 edge in our Value Index Edge and our tool only recommends plays on games where there is an edge of +2 or greater.
Even though the game is being played in Tampa Bay, CD didn't factor in a rating for the Bucs since the capacity will be 22,000 fans for the game and the allotment given to both Kansas City and Tampa Bay's fanbase will be distributed equally.
2020-21 PRESEASON SUPER BOWL PREDICTIONS
Prior to the season, we asked our stable of NFL handicappers at VegasInsider.com to predict the matchup and eventual winner of Super Bowl 55.
Of the 27 individuals that participated, we had seven correctly picks the Chiefs to win the AFC while only one handicapper believed that quarterback Tom Brady would lead Tampa Bay to Super Bowl 55.
That handicapper was Bill Marzano, who not only picked Tampa Bay but he picked Kansas City as well.
Marzano believes the Buccaneers will finish off the job at home, yes the Bucs are playing in their own venue for the Super Bowl and that will be the first instance in the 55-year history of the NFL finale.
Listed below are the 2020-1 preseason predictions from the NFL handicappers providing their AFC champion, NFC champion, and Super Bowl winner for the upcoming campaign.
