Some people are complaining of Super Bowl fatigue with Patrick Mahomes in the big game for the second straight year and Tom Brady playing in his 10th overall, but we love it here in the Tuley’s Takes home office. Some of our best Super Sundays have involved these two QBs.
We can only hope this year’s game is half as profitable as last year’s. While everyone was expecting me to pick the underdog 49ers last year, I went with a two-team, 6-point teaser on the Chiefs + 4.5/Over 48, and that worked out nicely with the Chiefs’ 31-20 victory. I also won the vast majority of our props, including long shots such as Mahomes to score the first TD (14-1 as well as first Chiefs TD at 12-1), double result on halftime tie/Chiefs win at 12-1, Chiefs to score exactly 31 points at 12-1 and total points between 51-55 at 6-1.
I’ve written many times about how I recommend tying prop bets to the way you handicap the game, while sprinkling in a few independent of the outcome. I plan to do that again, and since I expect a relatively close game again this year, a lot of my props will be the same.
