Some people have been talking down on the golden ticket NFL picks, calling me a fraud or to “fade” my picks. Now everyone is eating their words because during Championship Sunday, the golden ticket NFL picks were certified gold. With my latest 3-0 finish, I’ve brought my overall record up to 28-33. I’ve got a feeling I’m going 3-0 with this special Super Bowl golden ticket.
However, there are a few rule changes for this Super Bowl ticket. While I’m picking the game, I’m also picking one player prop bet and one overall prop bet. As always, we’ll be using Bovada for all lines.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers (ML) vs Kansas City Chiefs
I have a really good feeling about the Bucs pulling this one out. They have one of the best defenses in the league and they could easily stop Pat Mahomes.
In the first meeting between the two Super Bowl teams, Mahomes and Tyreek Hill had career games. Mahomes had 465 yards and 3 touchdowns while Hill had 13 receptions, 269 yards and 3 touchdowns. With those stat lines, you would think the Chiefs put up 70+ points. But, that was not the case; they only scored 27 points. The Bucs’ defense will keep them in the game and if the offense doesn’t struggle in the first half, I could see them winning the game.
Now, I could give you all the stats suggesting why the Bucs will win. But, my main reason for this bet is very simple: Tampa Bay has been a part of 3 out of the 4 major pro championships. The Tampa Bay Rays went to the World Series. The Tampa Bay Lightning won the Stanley Cup. Now, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are in the Super Bowl and the Super Bowl is being played in Tampa Bay. I don’t think this is a coincidence. The Bucs winning the game is written in the stars. Don’t get in the way of destiny and place your money on the Chiefs.
Leonard Fournette Any Time Touchdown (+110)
This was my one prop bet from Championship Sunday. It was a given that playoff Lenny was going to score a touchdown. The man has scored a touchdown in every playoff game this year and he’s going to do it again in the Super Bowl.
The production is there: he’s getting touches on the ground and through the air. He’ll have so many opportunities to score I have no problem putting this is the golden ticket. Like Joe Namath before, I’m guaranteeing this one.
National Anthem Over 1:59 (-105)
Last year, I did extensive research on the duration of the National Anthem. I stayed up for days watching Demi Lovato singing the anthem. Many dumb people were hammering the over, but it was clearly going under 1:59. But this year, it’s the opposite. Hammer the over.
With this year being a duet with Eric Church and Jazmine Sullivan (two people I’ve never heard of), it’s 100 percent going over. Two people should mean a longer performance. I would have done extensive research on this topic, but unfortunately this will be the first time they perform the anthem together.
The average length of the national anthem in the Super Bowl is over 1:56. So adding a duet will certainly make it hit the over. This is easy money. Take the advice of the National Anthem king.
If you decide to throw 20 on these very special Super Bowl golden ticket NFL picks, you’re walking away with $181. Don’t be dumb and not take it, it’s a winner.
