Sportsbooks List 49ers as Slight Favorites Over Chiefs for Super Bowl LVIII

The Chiefs are listed as underdog for the third consecutive game while the 49ers have yet to cover the spread in this post-season.

The matchup for Super Bowl LVIII is set with the Kansas City Chiefs taking on the San Francisco 49ers. The oddsmakers at SI Sportsbook list the 49ers as a 3-point favorite over the Chiefs and the initial point total is 47.

The Chiefs are heading back to the big game for the fourth time in five seasons and become just the third team in NFL history to accomplish that feat. With a victory in Super Bowl LVIII, Kansas City would become the first back-to-back Super Bowl champion since the 2003/2004 New England Patriots. They’ll also join an elite group of dynasties that won three Lombardi Trophies in five seasons (1970s Steelers, 1990s Cowboys, 2000s Patriots).

The NFC champion 49ers are making the franchise’s eighth Super Bowl appearance. A 49ers’ Super Bowl victory would tie the Steelers and Patriots for an NFL record six Super Bowl wins in team history.
