NFL Chiefs v 49ers 49ers Chiefs
The 49ers and Chiefs are headed toward a classic Super Bowl 54. Although the opening line has the Chiefs as slight favorites as the AFC "host" team in Miami next Sunday, Feb. 2 (6:30 p.m. ET, Fox), it's one of the closest NFL championship games to call, ever.
The 49ers, for now, are underdogs by between 1 and 1.5 points. That's despite the fact that they were 13-3 as the top seed in the tougher NFC and steamrolled both the Vikings and Packers in the playoffs. The Chiefs, meanwhile, had to erase early double-digit deficits against both the Texans and the Titans.
Here's breaking down the matchup and why to lean more on the 49ers being victorious.
