As the Super Bowl LVIII approaches, the point spread between the Kansas City Chiefs and San Francisco 49ers has narrowed significantly. Initially, the 49ers were favored by two points, but now the spread has decreased to just 1.5 points with DraftKings sportsbook. Despite this shift in favorability, many still believe that the Chiefs have a chance to win.
Both teams have experienced setbacks in recent weeks, with upset losses on Christmas Day. However, since then, the Chiefs have improved while the 49ers have maintained their position. Despite their struggles in the regular season, both teams have been successful in the playoffs, with the Chiefs winning three games and the 49ers coming back twice to win two games at home.
Many attribute this success to the talent of quarterback Patrick Mahomes, who has been instrumental in leading his team to victory. With Mahomes aiming for his third championship win, there is confidence that he will be able to achieve this goal. Witnesses to Mahomes’ ability to perform under pressure are hesitant to doubt him in this Super Bowl matchup.
