5* Super Bowl BEST BET + Props
San Francisco vs. Kansas City,
02/02/2020 18:30 EDT,
Score: 20 - 31
Point Spread: +1½/-103 San Francisco
I like SF and their ground control game of the 49ers vs the passing game of the Chiefs.
Kyle Shanahan was on the losing end of Super Bowl 52 with the Falcons leading the Patriots 28-3. He has said he learned a lot from that loss and you know it weighs heavily on him here in this Super Bowl.
All I hear is that Jimmy Garrapolo doesn't pass much but he is very good and they haven't had to pass the ball. He is 22-5 as a starting QB the past 2 years so I would say he is pretty good. Jimmy Garoppolo showed against the Saints and twice against the Cardinals he's capable of coming through in a shootout.
KC fell in a hole the past 2 games but recovered but both games were at home and not against this type of defense. The SF linebackers and defensive fronts are young, quick and athletic and will get thru the Chiefs Offensive line.
I believe that Shanahan learned from his prior mistakes plus SF is very balanced and will get the job done here on Super Bowl Sunday.
