Betting On The New England Patriots To Win Super Bowl 2020
Betting on the New England Patriots to win the Super Bowl in 2020 is no longer an option. No one ever thought the day would come where the Patriots were not in a Super Bowl or at least in conference championship en route to make it there. Quarterback Tom Brady is feeling every bit of his 42 years giving his team a season that ended with a record of 12-4. The Patriots had to settle for a Wild Card run in order for them to have a shot at Super Bowl 54. They went up against the Tennessee Titans who had a worse season of 9-7. Sadly, for New England, their hopes of going to the Super Bowl were shattered when they lost to the Titans 20-13. At the beginning of the season, the Patriots were at the top of the leaderboard for odds of making it to the Super Bowl with +350. Behind them were the Kansas City Chiefs with +450 odds. The Chiefs would get their place at SB 54 while New England would not.
