Chiefs’ Tyreek Hill, Tyrann Mathieu to battle it out in Madden tournament
Tyreek Hill and Tyrann Mathieu spent the 2019 season battling each other in practice with the Kansas City Chiefs, and now, they’ll square off on a virtual field. On Wednesday, Hill and Mathieu will compete against each other in a Madden tournament.
An NFL-based account on Twitter, The Checkdown, organized a Madden tournament in an attempt to help with the coronavirus relief efforts. Besides Hill and Mathieu, there are going to be other notable names taking part in the video game competition.
All of the games that are going to be played will be broadcasted on the official Madden Twitch channel. Before Hill and Mathieu face-off, Jarvis Landry and Denzel Ward of the Cleveland Browns will be on the sticks.
Also, whoever wins between Hill and Mathieu will advance to the second round of the tournament. The winner of the matchup of Chiefs teammates will take on the winner of Keenan Allen and Derwin James. Therefore, there will be a bit of an AFC West rivalry taking place during the offseason.
With no sports going on due to the coronavirus, Bovada listed the odds for each player to win the tournament. While Hill is the betting favorite, Mathieu is tied for the lowest odds to take home the championship.
After seeing the odds, Mathieu took to Twitter to inform people that they are underestimating his chances to win. Nevertheless, Mathieu will have a chance to defy the odds by beating Hill in the first round.
The million-dollar question is, will both of them be able to use the Chiefs?
