Familiar Foes Face Off Again

Two familiar Ohio names return to football’s showcase once again. Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce, a Westlake native, returns to play in his third Super Bowl. He had a TD catch in Super Bowl LIV and last year, in a thrilling 38-35 victory over the Philadelphia Eagles, had six receptions for 81 yards (13.5 avg.) and a second quarter 18-yard TD catch from quarterback Patrick Mahomes to tie the game at 7-7.

At BetMGM Sportsbook Ohio, Kelce is listed for anytime TD scorer at -110 and first TD at +600. 

Medina native and San Francisco 49ers fullback Kyle Juszczyk will be playing in his second Super Bowl, having had three catches for 39 yards and one TD in a 31-20 loss to Kelce’s Chiefs in Super Bowl LIV. Juszczyk has far higher odds entering Sunday’s showdown with anytime TD scorer (+1000) and first TD scorer (+5000).
