Palmerbet is offering G.O.A.T odds to wrap up the NFL season. If the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are to cause an upset and beat the Kansas City Chiefs, Tom Brady and his arm will be at the forefront of it all.
The Kansas City Chiefs are $1.57 and -3 favourites to win Super Bowl LV. They have won 25 of their last 27 games, and should they lift the Vince Lombardi Trophy again next week, they will begin to etch themselves into the list of all-time great NFL teams. The Chiefs are that good. Patrick Mahomes is that good.
Outside of a loss to the LA Chargers in which the Chiefs barely tried to win, their only defeat has come at the hands of the Las Vegas Rams. Their dominance is dizzying. While some games may look close on the scoreboard, those watching don’t often think the opposition is a chance at stealing the victory.
They do have Tom Brady to deal with in Super Bowl LV, though.
Elected to Hall of Fame at 43 years old:
Tom Brady will start the Super Bowl at 43.

This is Brady’s tenth visit to the big dance. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers also become the first team in NFL history to play a Super Bowl at home. The Chiefs are running hot, but Brady + home-field advantage is a scary prospect for any opposition. You’d be brave to bet against the legend, even at 43-years-old. He’s snatched victory from the jaws of defeat too many times in his career to assume Mahomes and the high-flying Chiefs will simply turn up on the day and leave with rings.
Brady can still find his receivers despite his age. He has thrown the most passing touchdowns in NFL history (581) with 40 of those coming this season alone. He’s at $2.31 to throw over 2.5 touchdowns in Super Bowl LV. But the Buccaneers must first pile up 1st downs if they’re to cause an upset ($2.42). Keep the ball out of Mahomes’ hands. Be efficient and consistently end a drive in points throughout the second half. To do that, Brady will more than likely need to finish up with over 296.5 passing yards ($1.88).
Does the 🐐 get it done again at #SuperBowlLV?

The Buccaneers have scored 30+ in each of their last six games. They aren’t totally out of it should a shootout ensue on game day. Still, early money is on the Chiefs. A whopping 71% is behind the Chiefs head-to-head while 63% is on their side in the handicap market. But it’s the $3.50 available for Brady to throw a touchdown and the Buccaneers to win that appeals. He is the key to Tampa Bay’s success, and it will be him that initiates any upset.
