Super Bowl LIV could be one of the biggest shootouts in Super Bowl history when the San Francisco 49ers and Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday, February 2. Nonetheless, oddsmakers have already spoken regarding the betting odds for Super Sunday.
The Chiefs are favored by 1.5 points over the 49ers to win Super Bowl LIV on various gambling sites, according to Action Network. Elsewhere, the Odds Shark Twitter account stated the line originally started in some places at Kansas City by 2.5 points and dipped to a pick ’em before finally settling at the Chiefs being favored by 1.5 points.
Meanwhile, the over/under is slated to be 53.5 points. Thus far, the Chiefs are averaging 43 points per game during the playoffs while the 49ers are averaging 32 points per contest in the playoffs.
Patrick Mahomes is a +110 favorite to win Super Bowl MVP followed by Jimmy Garoppolo, who is a +240 favorite to take the honor.
Shortly after the Baltimore Ravens were bounced from the playoffs by the Tennessee Titans during the divisional playoffs, the 49ers were briefly installed as favorites to win the Super Bowl. However, things have changed thanks to the 86 points scored by the Chiefs in their first two postseason games.
I’ll have a pick on the podcast at some point the week of the game but I’m going to guess a lot of points will be scored in this Super Bowl.
