Super Bowl 54 Odds: Patriots Edge Chiefs As Favorites For 2019-20

Super Bowl 54 Odds: Patriots Edge Chiefs As Favorites For 2019-20 As the clock ticks toward the opening of NFL training camps in mid-July the race atop the Super Bowl odds remains tight with the New England Patriots narrowly edging the Kansas City Chiefs as +700 favorites at sportsbooks monitored by OddsShark.com. New England has made some notable additions during the offseason, but will be without a big part of last season's Super Bowl winning squad when they open the 2019 NFL schedule with a Week 1 matchup against the Pittsburgh Steelers at Gillette Stadium.

It’s official: The ACC will send a team to California during bowl season.

The conference officially announced its 10 bowl affiliations for 2020-25 and the lineup includes the Holiday Bowl and a game that will be played at Fenway Park in Boston. The Fenway Park bowl game will be between teams from the ACC and American conferences and puts college football at, for the moment, 43 bowl games for the 2020 season.

Goodbye Detroit and Shreveport

The ACC had to drop two bowl games from its lineup to make room for Boston and San Diego. The two losers in this transaction are the Independence Bowl in Shreveport and the Quick Lane Bowl in Detroit.

Patriots likely won’t do Super Bowl champion visit to White House

Patriots likely won’t do Super Bowl champion visit to White House The Patriots have six championships since 2002 and they have visited the White House every time they've won a title. This year may be different. As postulated by ESPN's Mike Reiss, the Patriots' offseason schedule may not make it possible for the team to visit President Trump this year.

The ACC has sent teams to the Independence Bowl since 2010 and has been affiliated with the Quick Lane Bowl since that game replaced the Little Caesar’s Bowl in 2014. Both games have been near the bottom of the ACC pecking order.

“We are proud to partner with this exceptional collection of bowls for the 2020-25 seasons,” ACC Commissioner John Swofford said in a statement announcing the two bowl games new to the ACC. “We have enjoyed the long-standing relationships and look forward to working with those that are new to our lineup. The partnerships provide our 15-member league premier matchups, enhanced financials and attractive destinations.”

What the bowl lineup looks like in 2020

The conference’s top bowl will continue to be the Orange Bowl. The ACC champion will head to that game as long as it — or the Orange Bowl itself — isn’t a part of the College Football Playoff.

Jared Lorenzen had a key, but overlooked, role in the Super Bowl XLII win over the Patriots

Jared Lorenzen had a key, but overlooked, role in the Super Bowl XLII win over the Patriots The late Jared Lorenzen made only a limited on-field contribution to the 2007 Giants, throwing eight passes in a pair of ugly season-opening losses. He didn’t take a snap in the 14 regular-season games that followed, or in any of the four playoffs games the Giants won. Lorenzen had a key role, however, in one [more]

After that, the conference will pick teams for the remaining bowls “based on several factors, including geographic proximity, avoiding repeat appearances and matchups, and regular-season won-loss records.”

Those remaining bowls will continue to be the Belk Bowl, Camping World Bowl, Sun Bowl, Military Bowl, Pinstripe Bowl, Outback Bowl and the TaxSlayer Bowl in addition to the Holiday Bowl and the game in Boston. They’ll all get an ACC team.

After than, one ACC team will head to either of the Bad Boy Mowers Bowl, Birmingham Bowl or First Responder Bowl to round out the 10th and final spot for the conference.
