Chiefs and Saints Backed To Contest Super Bowl LIII
Rookie Quarterback Patrick Mahomes is being backed to lead the Kansas City Chiefs to the Super Bowl ahead of this weekend’s Conference Championship games.
Mahomes has enjoyed a stellar first season in the NFL, becoming only the third Quarterback to throw 50 touchdown passes in a season, joining esteemed company including Sunday’s opposing QB Tom Brady.
Brady’s New England Patriots are the outsiders going into Sunday’s encounter as they bid to win their third Super Bowl in the last five years.
We make the Chiefs odds-on at 8/15 to down the five-time Super Bowl champs with the Patriots out at 11/8.
It’s Drew Brees and the New Orleans Saints however who are favourites to get their hands on the Vince Lombardi trophy next month.
They are 7/4 frontrunners and a Saints/Chiefs face-off in Atlanta has this week been backed into 8/5 from 2/1.
The Saints can book their Super Bowl spot with a victory at 8/15 over the LA Rams this weekend, who are 31/20 for an upset and have a shot at Super Bowl glory in just their third season since relocating from St. Louis.
