The Film Room: Super Bowl LV Edition. Finding prop bets based on the matchup

We break down the Chiefs offense against the Buccaneers defense, and vice versa, and make some props picks too

The biggest game of the year is here, and who better to break it down than some people that cover college football!

Collin Sherwin and Seth Varnadore take a look at how the Bucs front four will attack Patrick Mahomes, how injuries could play a factor on the Tampa Bay offensive line, and how everyone is always open on every play for the Chiefs. Like literally on every play, it’s preposterous.

How do you defend the deep crossers of Tyreek Hill? Can the Bucs use pre-snap looks to find man coverage? These are the keys to the game, and to you making some cash as well.

We also make some props picks, including some game MVP possibilities on the defensive side of the ball, what jersey numbers might score the first touchdown, and more.

You’ll need to watch to get all our picks, btu here are some of our favorite prop bets from DraftKings Sportsbook:

First TD scorer jersey number: Under 24.5 -103

Game MVP: Jason Pierre-Paul +7000, Shaq Barrett +5000

Over 2.5 passers of the football: +265

Chiefs to win by 7-12 points: +420
