Back in the late 1980s to the early 2000s, there were repeat Super Bowl champions all over the shop.
The San Francisco 49ers did it during the 1988 and 1989 season. Then it was the Dallas Cowboys turn, going back to back in 1992 and 1993. Next up were the Denver Broncos in 1997 and 1998, with the first one Green that is denying Bay games. Finally, the brand new England Patriots made it happen in 2003 and 2004, because of Tom Brady.
Since then? Maybe not once.
It is difficult to do, evidently, and not soleley into the NFL. The 2016 and 2017 Pittsburgh Penguins, and the 2017 and 2018 Golden State Warriors.
So in the three other major sports in America, there have only been three other repeat winners since the Pats: the 2009 and 2010 Los Angeles Lakers the Kansas City Chiefs, winners of Super Bowl LIV, have a chance to enter some air that is rarified
This Kansas City group reminds me personally most of the 1998 Denver Broncos: that group began 13-0 after their 1997 name, after which had a game that is tough the AFC Championship with the Jets. But the Super Bowl was a blowout, with the Broncos taking a lead that is 34-6 the 4th quarter before winning 34-19.
The Chiefs are a -3 point favorite, with all the cash line around -160. Their opponents, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, ironically proceeded the trail for several three NFC playoff games and won, and then get to be able to have fun with the Super Bowl in the home, a primary for the game that is big
Right now, Kansas City is getting 55 percent of the money line bets, which has increased from 43 percent in the week that is first of on Super Bowl LV, and 55 per cent for the cash line handle.
The Chiefs are using 68 per cent for the -3 distribute wagers at this time, but that quantity is decreasing from a week ago, that has been 73 per cent. There is also 72 per cent for the spread handle.
But Kansas City is not great in 2010 contrary to the spread (7-10-1), before the AFC Championship Game.
Tampa Bay, but, is great at since the spread (11-8), and will nevertheless be available at +3.5 with a few sportsbooks. Tom Brady’s Bucs have actually covered in seven of the final 10, and every for the last two playoff games.
However, Tampa Bay is not great contrary to the spread in the home in its final two periods: 5-9-2, even though it is 4-2 in its final six, to ensure trend (with Tom Brady, needless to say) is changing.
The over, which has fallen from 57.5 to 55.5, is crushed by the general public bettors to your tune of 70 per cent, although that quantity dropped from 76 per cent week that is last. The over has 72 percent of the handle, down from 82 percent week that is last therefore belated cash appears to be arriving regarding the underneath total.
Kansas City is 9-9 hitting the over total, and also have struck three of five, but hasn’t done it in back again to straight back games yet in 2010. Tampa Bay is 11-8 because of the over.
