SUPER BOWL LIV BEST BET ~ NINERS VS. CHIEFS
San Francisco vs. Kansas City,

Score: 20 - 31
Point Spread: +1½/-110 San Francisco
I like the San Francisco 49ers to take down the Kansas City Chiefs in the Super Bowl.
KC has a scary good offense, but let's not forget that San Francisco ranked eighth in the NFL in scoring defense (19.4 ppg) during the regular season, and it gave up just 30 combined points against the Vikings and Packers. Additionally, the Chiefs do not have much of a Plan B (no running game) if the Niners figure out how to stop QB Patrick Mahomes.
On the opposite side of the ball, the 49ers have the firepower to match the Chiefs' explosive offense. QB Jimmy G is no Showtime Mahomes, but San Fran's running game averaged the second-most rushing yards per game through the regular season (144.1) and the team averaged 235.5 rypg in their two playoff wins. Note that the Chiefs' run defense is just 25th in the league and they are 2-3 in games where they gave up 150 yards rushing or more this season.
10* play on San Francisco 49ers.
