Who's in the Super Bowl?

Let's start with the obvious. The Kansas City Chiefs will defend their crown until the very last game of the season, hoping to keep it for at least another year, while the Tampa Bay Buccaneers want not only to become the first team to play the Super Bowl at their home turf but to win it.

How did they get here?

So, these two teams couldn't be further from each other. Let's begin with the champions. The Kansas City Chiefs were basically the favorites in the Super Bowl LV betting odds since before the season started.

There is a reason for this, the Chiefs are a wrecking ball. They cruised to the AFC number one seed, seemingly going at half-pace, and yet they still finished the regular season with a 14-2 record. The second loss came at Week 17 when they were resting their whole squad.

They got quite the scare in the Divisional Round as Mahomes left the game with an injury, but they still came through with huge wherewithal to fend off the Browns.

Then, they stomped Buffalo in the AFC Final to make a stand en route to their second straight Super Bowl appearance.

While the Chiefs were at half their efforts, the Bucs had it tough as nails. At one point, they didn't even look like a Super Bowl contender, but what has time shown us? Never count Tom Brady out. 

Since the start of December, the Bucs have scored 26 or more points in every game, Brady has been firing it up and dealing dimes, putting four 360+ yards performances. Now they are serious, winning three playoffs road games to finally find their home in the Big Sunday.

What happened when they last played?

The last time they faced was in November, at Week 12 of the season, in Tampa. Mahomes and Co. were the better side all around and got a 27-10 lead by the third quarter. It ended 27-24 as Brady pushed for a late comeback, which fell short. That's the last time the Buccaneers left the field with an L next to them.

When is the Super Bowl?

Sunday, February 7, will be the day to mark on your calendars, as the Super Bowl is scheduled to kickoff at 6:30 p.m. ET.

Where is the Super Bowl?

As previously mentioned, the Battle of the Pigskin will be played at the Raymond James Stadium, home of the Buccaneers, in Tampa Bay, Florida.

This is the first-ever team to play the Super Bowl in its own stadium. The Raymond James Stadium has hosted two previous Super Bowls, one at the end of 2008 and the other finishing the 2000 season. It will be the fifth time Tampa has played host to a Super Bowl, with the since-demolished Tampa Stadium first held the big game back in January 1984.

Who's favored to win by the Super Bowl betting odds?

The reigning Champs may be the visiting side, but they are still the early favorites, with the line opening at -3.5 for the Chiefs. Kansas City wasn't a safe bet throughout the season, though, finishing with an ATS record of 7-10-1. 

Anyhow, it's important to say that out of those 10 ATS losses, nine of them were point spreads larger than a TD differential. This is not the case at the Super Bowl betting lines.

Brady guided the Bucs to a 10-8 ATS record, but they were great as dogs, going 3-1 ATS when not favored by the odds.

How many times have the Super Bowl favorite won the Big Game?

The Super Bowl betting odds are usually close. At the end of the day, we're talking about the best two teams in the league pretty much all of the time. 

Super Bowl favorites are 28-25-2 ATS in the Sunday Showcase. This is 51.8% of the time. Now, this is where it gets spicy. Brady was part of the second-biggest underdog team in Super Bowl history in 2002 when the St. Louis Rams were 14-points favorite over the Patriots. Of course, Brady defied the odds and won his first ring.
