A Brief History

On January 12, 2020, the National Football League’s 2019 season hurtles toward its final determination as to who wears the Championship crown for the next year.  With the Wild Card games out of the way, we only have to wait for the results of the Green Bay Packers vs. Seattle Seahawks playoff to determine who will play the San Francisco 49’rs to see which NFC team will go to the big show and the results of the Houston Texans vs. Kansas City Chiefs game to determine which team will play the Tennessee Titans for AFC honors.

Update: As of January 13, 2020, the Chiefs and the Packers won the right to play the Titans and 49’rs for dibs on the Super Bowl match up on February 2, 2020.  Good luck to all involved!

Digging Deeper

The long, 16 game regular season has come down to these final six teams, and after today it will be down to the Final Four.  The Super Bowl, also known as number LIV, is to be played on February 2, 2020 in Miami, coincidentally the 100th Anniversary NFL Championship.

So who is going to win it all?  Earlier this year, before the season imploded on the entire region surrounding Cleveland, Ohio, we predicted a strong Super Bowl run by the Browns.  We were WRONG!  Instead, the cream has risen to the top, this time minus Tom Brady and the New England Patriots, and other teams are in line to play in the big game.

So who is the favorite?  Oddsmakers give the Chiefs and the 49’rs the best chances to win it all, while the Seahawks and Texans are the remaining longshots.  Super Bowl Betting PA is an American pastime, and enjoyed by office workers, family members, and professional gamblers alike.  Just be sure to consult some sort of knowledgeable sources for your background information on each team, because apparently this writer is not so good at picking the winner!  Even without the Eagles or the Steelers, Pennsylvanians and others without a team in the mix can still have fun making a wager.

For what it is worth, this casual football observer likes the Packers and Chiefs in today’s games, while the Chiefs and Packers will both go on to the game in Miami.  I will further go out on a limb and predict Aaron Rodgers will cement his legacy as one of the greatest Packers quarterbacks by steering the Pack to a Super Bowl win. While always a spectacular show at the stadium and on the television, this year’s Super Bowl is reported to be hosting at least several Presidential election commercials.  Boo!  We want to see funny and entertaining television ads in the true Super Bowl tradition, not politics!  How about you?
