The Kansas City Chiefs are the defending Super Bowl champs and have six players ranked in the 90s overall. Quarterback Patrick Mahomes is damn near a cheat code with his 99 rating overall, 97 awareness rating and 87 acceleration rating. Wide receiver Tyreek Hill has a 96 rating overall and his acceleration and speed ratings are 99, and he’s an easy touchdown once he gets off press coverage. Defensive end Frank Clark is a speedy pass rusher who gets to the pass rusher regularly and tight end Travis Kelce is a beast across the middle with his 96 rating. Like most teams that win the title, Madden shows love to a lot of the players and it’s been no different for the Kansas City Chiefs.
The New Orleans Saints have five players ranked 91 or better overall in quarterback Drew Brees, wide receiver Michael Thomas, defensive end Cameron Jordan and offensive linemen Ryan Ramczyk and Terron Armstead. As if a solid offensive line and game changers at quarterback and wide receiver wasn’t enough, the Saints also have an 89 overall at running back in Alvin Kamara who also has a 94 acceleration rating. The Saints are able to flip a game quickly and with Brees having a 98 awareness rating, he’s not going to be fooled by the defense often. The Saints also have one of the faster secondary’s in the game with Justin Hardee, Marshon Lattimore and Eli Apple all having speed and acceleration above 90 ratings, so you’re confident they won’t get beat deep often. The New Orleans Saints are easily one of the best teams to play with in Madden 20.
The Kansas City Chiefs are damn near impossible to turn down in the underdog role due to their explosiveness. However, I've said many times that I believe the New Orleans Saints are the most balanced team in this game when you consider the efficiency on the offensive side and the playmakers they have on defense. I don't like betting against the Saints in these simulations.
So, while the Chiefs and free points is tempting, I'm going to side with the Saints and the small chalk.
