Will Tom Brady and the dangerous Tampa Bay Buccaneers put points on the board first or will it be Patrick Mahomes and Kansas City’s prolific offense that lands the opening punch?
Will Super Bowl 55 have a bit of a ‘feeling out’ process to it or will we see one or both teams strike early and often?
Better yet, you’re about to get a handful of expert sportsbook betting props odds picks that could help you in your efforts to strike pay dirt when the Bucs and Chiefs square off in the final game of the 2020 NFL season.
Okay, let’s get to it.
Kansas City Chiefs (16-2) at Tampa Bay Buccaneers (13-5)
When: Feb. 7, 6:30 p.m. ET
Where: Raymond James Stadium, Tampa, FL
NFL Odds: Kansas City -3½
Moneyline: Buccaneers +150/Chiefs -170
Team To Score First
Analysis: I won’t get into a lot of meaningless stats about how many times the Chiefs or Bucs scored first this season. The fact of the matter is that whichever team receives the ball first could easily put at least three points on the board. This one’s a 50-50 call, but I’m going with the Chiefs.
Pick: Kansas City
Here is a look at the odds to win Super Bowl LV.
First Score of the Game Will Be
Field Goal +160
Any Other Score +4000
Analysis: Since I just picked the Chiefs to score first, I might as well go for broke. Patrick Mahomes leads Kansas City to a quick six to set the tone for Super Bowl 55.

Will Either Team Score In First Six Minutes?
Analysis: Even if there is a feeling-out process, you can almost certainly expect one of the final teams standing to put some points on the board inside the six-minute mark.

Special Teams or Defensive Touchdown Scored
Analysis: Tom Brady tossed three picks in the NFC Championship Game and should have tossed two against New Orleans in the Divisional round. I’m feeling a pick-six coming in Super Bowl 55 – and Patrick Mahomes isn’t going to be the one throwing it.

Total Touchdowns Scored
Over 6½ -120
Under 6½ -110
I’ve got Kansas City reaching the 30-point plateau while Tampa Bay should be good for at least 24 points. I can see seven touchdowns being scored.
