2020 Super Bowl Betting Line Picks

We’ll be using the current odds found at Bovada to make our picks. The Chiefs-49ers betting line hasn’t seen a too movement since it opened after the conference championships, and we believe now is the right time to place your bet, find value, and take advantage of the influx of public money on Super Bowl 54.

Point Spread Pick: Chiefs -1.5

The Chiefs opened as a 1.5-point favorite over the 49ers and the spread hasn’t shifted in favor of either team. The oddsmakers predict this will be a close game, and we think the Super Bowl could come down to a final drive. We’re taking the Chiefs at -1.5 because if there are two minutes left on the clock for either team, we think Patrick Mahomes is much more likely to his team to victory compared to Jimmy Garrapolo.

Money Line Pick: Chiefs -120

Since we’re going with the Chiefs on the spread, then it only makes sense that we’re picking them to win outright. Part of what makes the Chiefs an appealing wager is that even though the 49ers had the top-ranked defense in the NFL, Mahomes and the Kansas City offense have shown the ability to score quickly when needed. Because the 49ers use a run-first, ball-control offense, their opportunities to comeback are limited since they do not rely on the passing game to score. With that in mind, the Chiefs at -120 to win outright makes sense, but there is more value on the spread unless you think the 49ers lose by a single point.

Over/Under Pick: Over 54

Last year’s Super Bowl had an over/under of 57.5, which was the highest ever set for the final game of the NFL season. The result? Patriots beat the Rams 13-3, becoming the lowest-scoring Super Bowl in history and a perfect example of why there’s no such thing as a safe bet. The same holds true this time around. While the 49ers defense is more than capable of keeping this game under 54 total points, it’s worth noting they’ve been involved in a few shootouts this season when facing high-powered offenses. Both teams averaged nearly 30 points a game during the regular season, and we think Chiefs-49ers will provide a lot more fireworks (and points) than last year’s punt-off.
