The Chiefs and superstar quarterback Patrick Mahomes are back. So is quarterback Tom Brady, which makes it so interesting to bettors. Brady became the fourth quarterback in history to take two different teams to the Super Bowl after the Buccaneers beat the Green Bay Packers and won the NFC.
On February 7, Brady plays in his tenth Super Bowl. The idea of the best quarterback in the NFL, Mahomes, taking on the best player in NFL history, Brady, in a game for the title has heads spinning.

The industry leader provides software that enables individual bookies to run branded sportsbooks online. With PayPerHead.com software, an individual bookmaker’s sportsbook can offer the same options that larger sportsbooks offer. Johnson said the organization added two digital platforms that should help their per head agents break individual Super Bowl betting action records. The first is Live+, an in-game wagering platform that offers game trackers and video streams.
«With Live+,» Johnson said, «players have no reason to leave our agents’ sites. They can check Super Bowl LV stats, check out video streams, and make bets while the action happens.» The other platform that has PayPerHead agents excited is what Johnson calls Premium Props. «In the past, players couldn’t bet on sports performances through the same agent platform.

The best current player in the league goes up against the best player of all time and all eyes will be watching and millions of dollars will be wagered. In the National Football League, quarterback is the most important position. Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs versus Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers?
