If you were looking for last-minute betting advice from Claressa Shields for tonight’s Super Bowl matchup between the defending champion Kansas City Chiefs and Tampa Bay Buccaneers, great news!

“The Chiefs are the reigning champs and Patrick Mahomes has been amazing, but there is only one GOAT,” said Shields. “Tom Brady has a history of making his teams great, and in big games, he’s at another level. I’ve got to go with Brady and the Buccaneers.”

“Slow news day?” you might ask with a wry smile.

“Yes,” I would reply.

The Chiefs are slight favorites for Super Bowl LV, which will be held at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, giving the Bucs home field advantage in theory. Similarly, Shields (10-0, 2 KO), is set to return Friday, Mar. 5, facing Marie-Eve Dicaire (17-0, 0 KO) for the undisputed junior middleweight championship on PPV from Shields’ hometown of Flint, Mich. So you can see how this ties in and is relevant.

Super Bowl LV airs this evening at 6:30 pm ET on CBS.
