Super Bowl prediction

Washington Commanders defensive end Efe Obada, speaking ahead of ITV’s coverage of the Super Bowl, said: “I won’t sleep on this one. The Chiefs and 49ers, this is going to be a shootout and an amazing showdown. Both teams are evenly stacked, have amazing athletes and are offense dominated. It’s a star filled match up. It’s gonna be crazy.

“Until they get knocked out, I’m never gonna bet against the Chiefs and I think they will win. They have been there before, Mahomes is very composed and they are supported by a great team with Andy Reid and Travis Kelce. The script says they have to win it, but you just never know.”
