BOSTON (CBS) — Super Bowl LV figures to be one for the ages, with Tom Brady and his Buccaneers hosting Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs. Brady and his Bucs will be the first team in NFL history to play a Super Bowl in its home stadium.
But that home-field advantage isn’t enough for the gamblers to make Brady and the Bucs the betting favorites in two weeks.
