In less than a week, the San Francisco 49ers and Kansas City Chiefs will compete in Super Bowl LIV in Miami. If the betting line for the matchup is any indication, this year’s big game will be an all-time NFL classic. 2018 NFL MVP Patrick Mahomes leads a high-powered offense that can strike with the quickness of a fer-de-lance, and with equally as much venom. Led by rookie phenom Nick Bosa and veterans like Arik Armstead, however, the 49ers pass rush is the relentless mongoose, backed up by a snake charmer in a resurgent Richard Sherman.
Something’s got to give when these two teams clash, and even the oddsmakers in Vegas are having a hard time sorting out who’ll emerge victorious in Miami on Feb. 3. Following the conclusion of both conference championship games, the odds for Super Bowl LIV opened nearly as close to a pick ’em as you can get without actually labeling it one, with the Chiefs carrying a razor’s edge over the 49ers, per Westgate Superbook via SportsLine.
