Chris Ransom's Pick

Draft Utopia airs on Talkshoe and Anchor now. We have a weekly show on Anchor that airs weekdays as well as our usual weekend show on Talkshoe. The Draft Utopia podcast just exceeded 258,000 listeners on Talkshoe while our podcast on Anchor is monetized. Joseph Potter, the co-host of our podcast won the playoff pool seperate from the regular season pool. Jason Bantle won the playoff pool on the site among the five panelists. I also received a first place trophy for winning the regular season pickem pool finishing first nationally while Oren tied for second. It's been a banner year for Draft Utopia and if you can listen to our Senior Bowl interviews now that I'm back from Mobile.

Why the Kansas City Chiefs Will Win: Kansas City should be the undisputed favorite to repeat. Patrick Mahomes torched this Tampa Bay team back in week 12 thanks to having weapons like Tyreek Hill and Travis Kelce. Even with a depleted offensive line, Sammy Watkins should return. The return of Watkins means Mahomes will have his playmakers at full health for the first time since Kansas City beat Buffalo in the regular season. This is the second time in Draft Utopia history where a team was a lock heading into Super Bowl Sunday with the other time being Super Bowl 52 when everyone picked New England before Joey kept making the case for Nick Foles and the Philadelphia Eagles to win 52 which is what ended up happening. Tampa Bay has the personnel to pull the upset if their front 7 steps up.

Why the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Will Win: Kansas City has a weak offensive line thanks to left tackle Eric Fisher tearing his achilles. In fact Austin Reiter is the only returning starter at center from Super Bowl 54. Vita Vea is back at nose tackle too. Tampa Bay's front 7 will be able to get much more pressure on Mahomes. Former San Francisco 49ers defensive coordinator Robert Saleh gave some sound advice as how the Buccaneers can limit Mahomes. Tom Brady is still unbeaten against Mahomes in the playoffs. Brady will have 7 Super Bowl rings with a win on Sunday as Tampa Bay is the first team in NFL history to host the Super Bowl.

Prediction: Kansas City enters as a 3 point favorite. The minimum bet is $150 dollars, the maximum bet is $170 dollars with the average gambler betting around $160 dollars on this game. The over or under on this game is 56. Right now 55% of the betting action is on Kansas City at -3. Take Kansas City to win and cover with the under.

Final Score Chiefs 31 Buccaneers 24
