Super Bowl Picks
- Pick: Kansas City +108
For the Kansas City Chiefs, they won the AFC West with their 11-6 mark. Kansas City needed a home win over Miami, and road wins over Buffalo and Baltimore to get to this game. Let’s take a look at our Super Bowl Betting Preview:
First things first, the Super Bowl odds for this game feature the Kansas City Chiefs as the underdogs. That does not come as a major surprise, as San Francisco was one of the betting favorites all season in the National Football league. What is a bit of a surprise if the defending Champions are the underdog. The 49ers are -2 over the Chiefs in this game. The total for the affair is set at 47.5 points.
Kyle Shanahan and the San Francisco 49ers
When you made your Super Bowl predictions, you expected a big season out of Christian McCaffrey. What you did not expect is a monster season from the former Stanford Cardinal. The running back rushed for nearly 1,500 yards and 14 touchdowns, while catching an additional 67 passes for 564 yards and 7 touchdowns.
Deebo Samuel and Brandon Aiyuk are both impressive, along with one of the most elite tight ends in all of the National Football League. Samuel and Aiyuk both finished with seven touchdowns, while Kittle was at 6. In the win over the Lions, Samuel caught 8 passes for 89 yards, while Aiyuk got into the end zone. Christian McCaffrey ended the game with two rushing touchdowns.
It would not be a Super Bowl betting preview without some more NFL team stats. The 49ers are near the top in nearly every offensive category. The 49ers scored 29 points per game, and threw for nearly 252 yards per game during the regular season. In the postseason, San Francisco is scoring 29 points per game as well.
Mahomes Back in Familiar Spot
Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs are back as the AFC representative as one of the Super Bowl finalists. NFL matchups for this game were all over the place for NFL predictions, with teams such as the Buffalo Bills, Baltimore Ravens or even Miami Dolphins winning the AFC. Here we are, with another chance for the Kansas City Chiefs.
Mahomes and Travis Kelce have been elite in the postseason, with three touchdowns in three games. That combination now leads the National Football League in postseason passer-receiving touchdowns. Mahomes finished the season with nearly 4,200 yards passing, along with 17 touchdowns.
For Kansas City, while everyone wants to talk about their offense, and with Patrick Mahomes under center it is elite. But, the defense is where this team has made its name. The Chiefs’ defense allowed just 13.7 points per game during the regular season. Kansas City allowed just 332 yards per game, with only 209.7 of them via the air. Kansas City is allowing just 13.6 points per game in the postseason.
Chiefs Top 49ers
We hope you enjoyed our Super Bowl betting preview. When push comes to shove, we expect this to be a really good National Football League game. These two teams are both battle-tested and have all sorts of talent on the field. Our final bet though goes with the team that has been there and done that.
Christian McCaffrey gets the party started for the 49ers with the first touchdown of the game. After that though, it’s Mahomes’ magic, and his buddy Travis Kelce helping out. Those two combine for two touchdowns in the game. The Kansas City Chiefs knock off the San Francisco 49ers and come away with their third Super Bowl title in four seasons. Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs +108 on the moneyline over the San Francisco 49ers. Best of luck and enjoy Super Bowl LVIII!
