Chiefs (-1.5) and 49ers Ready for Super Showdown

The biggest day on the American sporting calendar has (almost) arrived.  After the customary two-week break between games, the Kansas City Chiefs (-1.5), champions of the American Football Conference, are set to take on the National Football Conference champion San Francisco 49ers in Super Bowl LIV, Sunday in Miami.  The experts are predicting plenty of offensive fireworks Sunday, which would be a welcome change, compared to last year’s 13-3 snoozer between the New England Patriots and Los Angeles Rams.

Bears (-3) and Packers Kickoff NFL’s Centennial Season Thursday

Are you ready?  The 100th season of the National Football League kicks off, at long last, with the most-played rivalry in the sport.  The Chicago Bears (-3) meet the Green Bay Packers for the 199th time, Thursday night at Soldier Field.  In other national games, the defending Super Bowl champion New England Patriots (-5.5) host the Pittsburgh Steelers Sunday night.  Monday Night Football begins its 50th season with a doubleheader: the New Orleans Saints (-7) host the Houston Texans early, then the Denver Broncos (EVEN) visit the Oakland Raiders in a traditional late grudge match.
