It’s time for the Super Bowl and that means one thing; it’s time for bold predictions. You see, everyone is predicting the winner, the final score, and even who will be the MVP. But, here is some out of the box thinking that could happen during the big game:
Chiefs’ leading rusher: Patrick Mahomes
By the time the Super Bowl is set to play, Patrick Mahomes will be fully healed from his toe injury. The Buccaneers have one of the top rushing defenses in the league. Mahomes is great at making plays on the run.
There will be a missed extra point
Since the NFL moved the extra point back, the success rate has fallen to 93.8 percent. Both kickers in this game are below that mark. Tampa Bay kicker Ryan Succop is at a 92 rate percent and Kansas City kicker Harrison Butker is at a 90 percent rate.

There will be a successful two-point conversation
This may be a good start to your prop betting. In eight of the last eleven Super Bowls, a team has attempted a two-point conversion. This season both teams attempted two attempts each. The Chiefs were successful in both and the Buccaneers not so lucky as both were failed attempts for them.
The MVP will be a defensive player
If the Chiefs win, that means the defensive line was able to put pressure on Tom Brady and the Bucs offense. That means Chris Jones was an unstoppable force. If the Buccaneers win that means Devin White can show that he was able to shut down Travis Kelce in the passing game.
Tom Brady’s first-quarter struggles in the Super Bowl will continue
In what is probably the most inexplicable stat of Brady’s career, he has never led his team to a touchdown in the first quarter of a Super Bowl. In nine games with the Patriots, Brady managed to score three points TOTAL in the nine first quarters.
The Chiefs will be leading heading into the fourth quarter, but the Buccaneers will score within the last three minutes of the game to win. The last six Super Bowls have been decided by less an 8.8 points and have seen a score in the final minutes of the game.
