Super Bowl Odds: 49ers vs Chiefs Gambling Line Released
The Super Bowl odds and gambling line for 49ers vs Chiefs was released this week.
Shortly after the Niners closed out the Green Bay Packers in the NFC Championship Game, all attention immediately turned to two weeks from now.
In two weeks, at Super Bowl LIV, a pair of well-balanced organizations will square off for the biggest prize in the sport.
Kansas City comes into this one fresh off a 12-4 regular season campaign.
The Chiefs defeated the Houston Texans and Tennessee Titans en route to earning a Super Bowl bid.
San Francisco, meanwhile, went 13-3 on the year and dispatched the Minnesota Vikings and Packers for their spot in most important sporting event of the year.
Given how balanced of a match-up this will be, it should come as no surprise that odds makers see it being a very close game.
Currently, the Chiefs are listed as 1 and 1.5 point favorites heading into the Super Bowl, depending on who you choose to bet with.
“We had the Chiefs a little higher than the 49ers in our power ratings,” Alan Berg, senior oddsmaker for Caesars Sportsbook, told ESPN.
“You can make a case for either team, and I expect decent, balanced action from the public.”
According to bookmaker William Hill, someone has already placed a $33,000 bet on the Chiefs to emerge victorious.
Thus far, more than 70 percent of the bets that have come in up to this point have come in on Kansas City.
Will that change as we creep closer to Feb. 2? Time will tell.
