Alright football fans, it’s that time of year – time for the biggest day in sports: The Super Bowl. Aka the “Big Game,” the “Colossal Showdown,” the Sunday, Sunday, Sunday Chiefs fans have been waiting for since… well, last year when they beat the San Francisco 49ers.
Now, knowing most of you are probably thrilled to watch something other than Netflix reruns or your Instagram feed, we wanted to do our best to help build even more anticipation for Sunday’s matchup.
So, in order to get you even more excited for the championship duel between the Kansas City Chiefs and the Tom Brady-led Tampa Bay Buccaneers, we reached out to a handful of sports-savvy artists to see who they think will win it all.
To see what members of August Burns Red, The Maine, The Word Alive, Fit For A King, Ice Nine Kills and more had to say about Super Bowl 55, be sure to look below.
JB BRUBAKER - AUGUST BURNS RED
Chiefs 31 - Bucs 24
Tom Brady’s back in the Bowl but Patrick Mahomes has too many weapons for the Bucs defense to handle. I expect a high scoring game with the Chiefs getting it done for the second time in as many years.
JOHN O’CALLAGHAN - THE MAINE
I hope that when I’m 43 years old I’ll be playing in my tenth Super Bowl. I do not believe the Bucs will win, but my God, Tom Brady is unreal.
TELLE SMITH - THE WORD ALIVE
I think that in a perfect world, Tom Brady wins a Super Bowl for the Bucs to not only prove he can win without Bill [Belichick] but that he’s still the GOAT. I have hated him and the Patriots for so long but watching his once in a lifetime greatness has grown on me. That being said, the Chiefs win 42-24 😂 Mahomes is the future GOAT.
RYAN KIRBY - FIT FOR A KING
I’m going to go with the Bucs. I just can’t bet against Tom Brady, I’ve been burnt on that too many times before. I think the Bucs defense is playing the best it has all year and they win in a kind of ugly game. 27-24 Bucs
RYAN “TUCK” O’LEARY - FIT FOR A KING
42-2 in favor of the pirate guys. I don’t like Tom Brady but I do love booty… that’s a pirate joke. The Chiefs get a safety and take Tom Brady out of the game with 2 minutes left.
KEVIN JORDAN - THIS WILD LIFE
Any man who kisses his teenage son on the lips in public has got that special sauce and Tom Brady is taking the Chiefs to Flavor Town. I also know nothing about football whatsoever. 100 - 3 Buccaneers.
PATRICK GALANTE - ICE NINE KILLS
As a Buffalo Bills fan, this decision is difficult. Some want to root against the Chiefs who beat us for the AFC Championship this year and others will always root against Tom Brady. I am one of the latter. I’m going with a Chiefs win 34 - 27. Screw Tom Brady.
NICK VENTIMIGLIA - GRAYSCALE
I think Tom Brady is going to take it all. Tampa Bay is fired up and I don’t think the momentum will stop. Kansas City has some unreal weapons so it will be a great matchup. I love seeing a young and ridiculously talented quarterback going against the GOAT. Tom’s [University of Michigan] alum, so I have to go with my boy, Brady. Let’s go Bucs!
TOM WILLIAMS - STRAY FROM THE PATH
Kansas City Chiefs -3: Risk 480 to win 400
Kansas City Chiefs Money Line: Risk 340 to win 200
Travis Kelce +800 To Win MVP: Risk 25 to win 213
Coin Toss: Risk 115 to win 100 (4 and 1 lifetime on the coin toss bet TAILS NEVER FAILS)
Color of Gatorade To Be Dumped On The Coach: ORANGE and PURPLE (lines not in yet. 3 for 3 on this bet)
35-28 in favor of the Chiefs because they’re superior and midwest kids can make it big!
MELVIN BRINSON - OFF ROAD MINIVAN
Only because I’m a cheesehead, Chiefs 28-21. I went ahead and spoke to the refs directly so they are well aware to call the game correctly for this outcome.
MICHAEL LEO VALERI - BRAND OF SACRIFICE
Well, it’s the Chiefs vs the Bucs. The Bucs have Tom Brady and in this house we don’t support cheaters now do we? Therefore, we will be backing the Chiefs. Oh, and they won last year so let’s go for two in a row. The score is gonna be 32-29. CHIEFS.
BLAKE MCCLIMON - A SCENT LIKE WOLVES
Super Bowl LV will be a high scoring passing attack led by Mahomes and the Chiefs. I believe Hill and Kelce will cause TB’s defense issues all game long. The difference for me is TB’s pass defense, they gave up 460+ to Mahomes earlier this year and [Aaron] Rodgers showed last week that it can be done again. 41-28 KC.
ANDREW RAPIER - FELICITY
As a diehard New England Patriots fan this game is absolutely heartbreaking for me. However, I am SO excited to see Brady & Gronk roll into their home stadium and win another ring! I believe this game is going to be a complete shoot out, both teams have record-breaking offenses and incredible weapons, but I can’t see any way in all of Dr. Strange’s 1,000,000+ versions of reality that Tom Brady does not win this game. Brady went into New Orleans and beat Drew Brees, cruised into Lambeau Field and took out Aaron Rodgers, and now he will go into the Super Bowl and beat the world champs and Patrick Mahomes. There is NO way Tom Brady loses this game, he is the greatest athlete of all time and he’s taking RING #7 back to Tampa!
BUCS 31 - CHIEFS 28!
SPENCER LAYNE - CARPOOL TUNNEL
The only super bowl I care about is the one I am currently eating soup out of.
