TOTAL OF THE MONTH (SUPERBOWL!) ~ PUT BURNS IN YOUR CORNER!
San Francisco vs. Kansas City,
02/02/2020 18:30 EDT,
Score: 20 - 31
Total: -110/+54 Under
I'm playing on KC/SF UNDER the total. Both conference championship games finished above the total. Those results have helped provide us with a generously high O/U line for the big game. I believe that it'll prove to be too high. The 49ers are here, in large part, to their defense. While they eventually gave up some points, they held the Packers scoreless through the first half, making Rodgers look bad. On the season, they allow just 18.9 ppg and 279 ypg. Though more known for their offense, the Chiefs defense is better than people realize. They allow a respectable 20.2 ppg and 357 ypg. Going into the game against the Titans, people said they were vulnerable against the run and that they would have trouble against Henry. After all, Henry had been running wild. They silence those critics though, effectively taking him out of the game, or at least limiting him. The 49ers only played two games with a total of 50 or greater all season and both of those finished below the number. They've also seen the UNDER go 3-1 against AFC teams and 2-0 the past two times that they played with two week's rest in between games. Look for this one to prove lower-scoring than many will be expecting, the final combined score staying beneath the generously high total.
