Super Bowl 58, known in some circles as Super Bowl (Taylor’s Version), is set for Sunday as the San Francisco 49ers once again try to get the better of the Kansas City Chiefs. The Super Bowl odds have seen lots of movement since opening just after the dust settled from Championship Sunday, with the 49ers holding as tepid favorites while a fairly large consensus total hangs on the board.

Super Bowl predictions are rolling in, from spread plays to Super Bowl props to even exact Super Bowl score predictions. We’re chronicling how the odds have moved since opening and looking back at how these teams got here to help you with making NFL picks and 49ers vs. Chiefs predictions for Sunday, February 11.

Super Bowl odds for 49ers vs Chiefs

Lookahead lines prior to Championship Sunday had the San Francisco 49ers as a 3-point favorite over the Kansas City Chiefs in a potential Super Bowl matchup. But with the 49ers getting all they could handle from the Detroit Lions while the Chiefs suffocated Lamar Jackson and the Baltimore Ravens offense, most books opened the Niners at -2.5. Early money poured in the Chiefs to knock them down as low as +1.

The line started moving steadily toward San Francisco last week, with the 49ers moving all the way up to -2.5 again. But -2 is the consensus spread as of Thursday morning, with K.C. getting over 70% of the tickets and handle at BetMGM.

The current Super Bowl moneyline is not much different from the opening one, which featured the 49ers at -137 and the Chiefs at +115. We saw the range shrink to as low as 49ers -118/Chiefs -102 on Championship Sunday night, but buyback on San Fran has pushed it close to the original lines. 

The total has seen arguably the least movement of all three standard markets after opening at 47, creeping up to 47.5, and staying there over the last 10 days. The vig has moved slightly, but the standard -110 lines on both sides of 47.5 is what you’ll find at most books as of Thursday morning.

How we got here

San Francisco 49ers

Despite what the 49ers will have you believe, San Francisco was a popular choice to make it to Super Bowl LVIII throughout the season.

bet365 listed the 49ers at +900 ahead of Week 1, and the line never got any bigger than that. San Fran dropped to as low as a +400 favorite before a three-game losing streak knocked the Niners back a bit. After jumping to +600, the 49ers’ odds grew steadily shorter to +225 ahead of the playoffs to -125 right now.

Kansas City Chiefs

The defending-champion Chiefs opened as logical preseason favorites at +600, but their odds jumped to +650 after a season-opening loss to the Lions. Their Super Bowl futures gradually fell from there to +450, but after losing three of four games to fall to 9-6, doubt began to creep in.

K.C. was as long as +900 at the start of the postseason and needed to win two road playoff games, something Patrick Mahomes had never even attempted, just to get to the 58th renewal of the Big Game.
