Top Super Bowl 56 Pick – Buffalo Bills

Kansas City looked good beating up a lucky to get into the playoffs Pittsburgh Steelers squad. The Steelers aren’t close to being on Buffalo’s level, which is why the odds on Bills-Chiefs favor KC by just 2.5 instead of the usual 3.

Buffalo beat Kansas City at Arrowhead during the regular season. The Chiefs couldn’t stop Josh Allen from rushing the ball. The Bills quarterback averages 6.3 yards per carry, making him one of the most effective rushers in the league.

Allen is impossible to defend against. So unless he plays a bad game, the Bills should beat the Chiefs and then Titans or Bengals and march into the Super Bowl the favorite to take home rings.

Second Super Bowl 56 Pick – Tampa Bay Buccaneers

The one team that could derail the Buffalo Bills from winning the Super Bowl are the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The reason to like Tampa is that Tom Brady plays for the Bucs. There’s another reason to back the Buccaneers. Tampa Bay’s defense is one-hundred percent healthy. Lavonte David, Shaquil Barrett, Devin White, Antoine Winfield Jr., etc. play on the same field for the first time since, maybe, the Week 1 victory against the Dallas Cowboys.

Brady will destroy the Rams’ defense if LAR decides to blitz. The Buccaneers should make Matthew Stafford’s life hell. Then in the NFC Championship, it will be rinse and repeat no matter if Tampa plays the Packers or the 49ers.

Third Super Bowl 56 Pick – Tennessee Titans

If you don’t like Buffalo or Tampa, consider backing the Titans. Tennessee beat both the Bills and the Chiefs during the regular season. Home field is important and the Titans have home field. You know what’s also important for the Titans’ chances? Derrick Henry practiced with contact earlier this week and showed he’s ready to roll. With Henry rushing the football, Ryan Tannehill will have an easier time throwing passes to A.J. Brown. Also, Mike Vrabel’s defense has come together. Tennessee offers much better odds than it should to win Super Bowl LVI.

Top Super Bowl 56 Underdog – San Francisco 49ers

San Francisco’s latest injury report lists Nick Bosa as questionable. Bosa suffered a concussion in the upset victory over the Dallas Cowboys. He may not clear protocols in time to play against Aaron Rodgers and the Packers.

If Bosa doesn’t play, beating Green Bay at Lambeau becomes much more difficult, but it’s not out of the question. The real thing to consider is this: does SF have a better shot to win the Super Bowl, and offers fairer odds to win the SB, than the Cincinnati Bengals? The answer should be yes. SF has a top defense, a decent quarterback, and a terrific coach.

Cincinnati has a good defense, a great quarterback, and a good coach. The difference between the two dogs? San Francisco’s offensive line is very good. The Bengals’ offensive line is good on the left side and not so great on the right side. Joe Burrow must continually get himself out of harm’s way, which makes the Bengals a tough play at the odds, leaving the Niners as the top underdog pick. Go San Francisco if you want to back one of the longer shots to win Super Bowl LVI.
