What's the latest line for Super Bowl LV, Tampa Bay Buccaneers vs. Kansas City Chiefs?
Super Bowl LV was already going to be a unique game — now it's even one for the bookmakers. It's the first Super Bowl with home-field advantage.
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers, with their 31-26 win over the Green Bay Packers in the NFC Championship, became the first team in NFL history to get to host the Super Bowl. They will play the defending Super Bowl champions, the Kansas City Chiefs, at 6:30 p.m. on Sunday, Feb. 7 at Tampa's Raymond James Stadium. Kansas City defeated the Buffalo Bills, 38-24, in the AFC Championship on Sunday night.
The Buccaneers (14-5), who brought in Tom Brady at quarterback this season after he spent 20 seasons in New England, got off to a fast start in 2020. After an opening loss to New Orleans, Tampa Bay won six of its next seven. Though the Bucs stumbled a bit in mid-season, they turned it around by winning their last four, then beat Washington and New Orleans before their win Sunday against the Packers.
The Kansas City Chiefs (17-2) roared through the regular season, losing only to the Las Vegas Raiders before the season's final week, when they rested starters in a defeat to the Los Angeles Chargers. Patrick Mahomes had another excellent season, throwing 38 touchdown passes against just six interceptions. The Chiefs secured a first-round bye in the playoffs before downing the Cleveland Browns and then the Buffalo Bills in the AFC Championship.
