The Super Bowl is a little over 48 hours away, and it’s time to start finalizing picks for Sunday’s game between the Kansas City Chiefs and Tampa Bay Buccaneers. It’s possible we see relevant news in the next two days that shakes up how people view this game, but more than likely, what we’re now seeing is what we’ll get.

The staff here at DraftKings Nation took some time to put together a handful of picks around the game. We’ve got a look at the game winner as well as a pick against the spread and for the point total. We’ve also got picks for MVP, whether heads or tails will come up for the coin toss, and who will be the first player to score a touchdown.

Seven of the eight game picks are for the Chiefs, and all seven Chiefs picks include covering the spread. Five of those seven picks go with Patrick Mahomes to win MVP, while the remaining two are split between Tyreek Hill and Travis Kelce. Travis Kelce has the clear edge for first to score a touchdown, with four of the eight picks backing him. The remaining four are split between Tyreek Hill, Mike Evans, Sammy Watkins, and Clyde Edwards-Helaire.
