49ers open as favorites to dethrone Chiefs in Super Bowl

Oddsmakers think the San Francisco 49ers have what it takes to prevent the Kansas City Chiefs from becoming the first team in 19 years to win back-to-back Super Bowls.

Kansas City capped the 2022 season with a victory over the Philadelphia Eagles for its second championship in four years, but the Chiefs are currently underdogs as they prepare to defend their title against San Francisco on Feb. 11 in Las Vegas.

With a victory in this year’s big game, Kansas City would be the first team to go back-to-back since the New England Patriots did so in the 2004-05 Super Bowls.

BetMGM currently has the 49ers as 1.5-point favorites, a line that has already shown movement, as the sportsbook originally had the spread at 2.5.

FanDuel is also offering Kansas City as a 1.5-point underdog, while DraftKings is giving the Chiefs just one point to work with.

All three books have the game’s total listed at 47.5 points.

When it comes to the moneyline, both BetMGM and DraftKings have the Niners at -120 and Kansas City at +100. The Chiefs also sit at +100 on FanDuel, where San Francisco comes in at -118.

Kansas City will be playing in the Super Bowl for the fourth time in five years after beating the Baltimore Ravens 17-10 in the AFC Championship Game on Sunday. In addition to last year’s championship, the Chiefs also went the distance in 2020, when they knocked off the 49ers 31-20 in Super Bowl LIV.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers won it all in 2021, cruising to a 31-9 victory over Kansas City.

San Francisco’s season was on life support during Sunday’s NFC Championship Game, as the Niners trailed by 17 at halftime before rallying for a 34-31 win over the Detroit Lions. The 49ers are in the big game for the first time since that last meeting with the Chiefs.

San Francisco hasn’t won a Super Bowl since 1995.
