Super Bowl XLIX Odds: Chiefs Slight Favorites, Very High Total

Filed under: Uncategorized — Joe Duffy @ 10:35 PM

Kansas City is a scant favorite over San Francisco in Super Bowl LIV, and some think this spread could flip. 

“Despite the AFC being the perceived superior conference this season, you can’t ignore how balanced this 49ers team really is,” said SportsBetting lines manager Robert Cooper. “It’s not out of the question that over the next two weeks we could see this line reverse where San Francisco is favored.”

The online sportsbook set the Super Bowl initial line at Chiefs -1.5 with an over/under of 52.5. 

Before the 49ers-Packers game, the early line for a 49ers vs. Chiefs Super Bowl matchup was Kansas City -3. However, when the Niners opened up a 34-7 lead Sunday night the line had dropped to Chiefs -1. 

Previously, there have only been three occasions where the Super Bowl spread was 1.5 points or fewer. The last time was Super Bowl XLIX where the Seahawks and Patriots game went off as a pick ’em. Prior to that, the 49ers were a 1-point favorite in Super Bowl XVI (1981 season) against Cincinnati and the Dolphins were a 1-point favorite versus Washington in Super Bowl VII (1972 season). 

As far as the over/under, the 52.5 marks one of the 10 highest totals in Super Bowl history. 

Some prop bets for the big game have already been released, and hundreds more will be sent out Tuesday. 

Some early betting patterns have evolved. off another sweep in the conference championships, is the place to go for winning picks and vetted sportsbooks.
