Top NFL predictions for Super Bowl LV
One of the top Super Bowl LV NFL picks the model recommends: Buccaneers vs. Chiefs goes over the total of 56. The line originally opened at 57 but has dropped by a full point to create value on the over. And while the two sides combined for just 51 points in their first meeting, there were a lot of points left on the table in that contest.
The Chiefs and Buccaneers combined for 960 yards of total offense in Week 12, with Patrick Mahomes throwing for 462 yards and three scores while Tom Brady had 345 yards and three scores of his own. However, the Chiefs only scored one touchdown on its three trips inside the red zone while the Buccaneers went just 3-for-9 on third down in the game.
Kansas City ranked 14th in the NFL this season with touchdowns on 61.0 percent of the time after moving inside the 20-yard line. Meanwhile, the Buccaneers ranked 11th in the NFL with a third-down conversion rate of 43.5 percent. Expect both teams to be a little sharper in those areas to help take the total over on Sunday.
