Super Bowl 55 Over/Under Prediction
The Chiefs and Bucs both rank in the top-5 offensively, but with a high total and rain in the forecast, will Super Bowl 55 go over the total of 56 points?
101 Kansas City Chiefs (-3) at 102 Tampa Bay Bucs (+3); o/u 56.5

Tampa Bay Bucs DFS Spin
Mike Evans caught 3-of-8 targets for 51 yards and a touchdown in the Bucs' NFC Championship Game win over the Packers. It was a mixed day for Evans, who reaved Kevin King's soul — including on his 15-yard where first quarter touchdown where King mis-timed his jump — but also committed a few drops. He was the target on all three of Tom Brady's interceptions, including a too-high pass that hit off Evans' hands into Jaire Alexander's. This connection will have to be cleaned up for the Bucs to bring home the second Lombardi in franchise history against either the Chiefs or Bills.
Kansas City Chiefs DFS Spin
ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Sammy Watkins (calf) will suit up for Super Bowl LV against the Bucs. Watkins has been trending this way all week after not suiting up since Week 16. Watkins' Super Bowl usage is a complete wild card in an offense that has been trying to get Mecole Hardman more involved the past few weeks. Seeing as his last snaps were Dec. 27, Watkins probably won't be ready for his usual complement of plays. Any Chiefs receiver offers attainable DFS upside, but you're on your own when it comes to deciding to play Watkins.
Chiefs vs. Bucs Super Bowl Over/Under Prediction
Despite the rain that could hit the Tampa, FL area tonight, I wouldn’t want to be holding an under ticket when these two teams clash at Raymond James Stadium.
The Chiefs rank first in total yards per game (415.8), first in passing yards per game (303.4) and sixth in scoring (29.6), while the Bucs rank seventh in yards (384.1), second in passing (289.1) and third in scoring (30.8).
The over is also 4-1 in the Chiefs’ last five games coming off a win and cashed in 23 of the Bucs’ last 33 games overall. The over is 9-4 in the Bucs’ last 13 games as an underdog and 24-11 in their last 35 games after accumulating 250 yards passing in their previous game as well.
