Super Bowl 2021 Futures
After losing in Week 17 and Buffalo looking strong, the Chiefs are sitting at +225 heading into the playoffs. It’s tough to win back-to-back Super Bowls. The New England Patriots were the last team to repeat after they won back-to-back Super Bowls in 2004 and 2005. However, Patrick Mahomes in the past two seasons has an NFL MVP and Super Bowl MVP to his credit. He will finish in the top three of MVP voting this time. With a bye and home-field advantage throughout the AFC, Kansas City is set up nicely to repeat.
The combination of a great defense and Tom Brady-led offense is too good to pass up. Brady and Antonio Brown began to develop some chemistry down the stretch. He helped his wide receiver earn a $250,000 bonus in Week 17 by making sure he caught 11 receptions to trigger an incentive. If the Buccaneers win the next Super Bowl, Antonio Brown will enjoy another $750,000 bonus. Tampa Bay gets to open with the NFC East champion (Washington), which is an absolutely ideal scenario. Plus the NFC is more navigable than the AFC, so at +1100 the Bucs have great value.
