Super Bowl LVIII from Las Vegas will take place on Sunday, with the San Francisco 49ers taking on the Kansas City Chiefs. The San Francisco 49ers went 12-5 in the regular season, and won the NFC West. The 49ers played two home games to get to the Super Bowl, and beat the Green Bay Packers and Detroit Lions. The 49ers a season ago lost in the NFC title game to the Philadelphia Eagles.
For the Kansas City Chiefs, they are looking to win back to back Super Bowl titles. The Chiefs were the three seed in the AFC playoffs. Kansas City had to win three games to get to the Super Bowl. First, it was a home win over the Miami Dolphins. Next, the Chiefs beat the Buffalo Bills on the road, and then finally, they went to Baltimore and beat the Ravens. Kansas City was 11-6 in the regular season.
The San Francisco 49ers are -1.5 over the Kansas City Chiefs in this game. The total for the affair sits at 47.5 points.
Mahomes World Under Center
It is Patrick Mahomes’ world and we are just living in it. The signal caller has been brilliant in the postseason, and has yet to turn the ball over in three games. In those three games, he has found Kelce three times in the end zone for touchdowns. Isiah Pacheco also has three touchdowns for Kansas City.
The Chiefs defense has been fantastic. In the final two regular season games, the Chiefs allowed just 14.5 points per game. Since the postseason started, Kansas City is allowing just 13.6 points per game. Chris Jones is the man on the defensive side of the ball for the Chiefs. He is the one, with George Karlaftis, that will be able to get to Brock Purdy and cause all the issues.
Balanced Attack for San Francisco
George Kittle promised he would be back in this game the last time the Chiefs and 49ers played in the Super Bowl. Now, here the former Iowa tight end is. Kittle is one of the many weapons for Brock Purdy in the San Francisco offense. Kittle caught six touchdown passes in a very balanced passing attack that saw Brandon Aiyuk, Deebo Samuel and Christian McCaffrey record 7.
McCaffrey is the main story here though. The former Stanford Cardinal and Carolina Panthers running back led the league in touchdowns with 21 in the regular season. Since the postseason has started, McCaffrey has four rushing touchdowns. The 49ers offense scored 28.9 points pre game during the regular season. If the 49ers scored 21 points in the regular season, they won the game.
Betting Prediction Sides with Chiefs
We are going to bet on the Kansas City Chiefs to repeat as Super Bowl Champions. The Chiefs have been there and done that, and are talented enough to take down the 49ers. The Kansas City defense has been elite, and that is what will get the job done.
If you can keep the 49ers to just 17 points, you have a chance of beating them. That is what Kansas City does here, as they win the game. We like the Chiefs to win this game 27-17. Our final betting pick for this game is the Kansas City Chiefs +1.5 over the San Francisco 49ers.
