The 49ers looked awfully impressive in their 27-10 victory over the Vikings on Saturday, but did the Chiefs look better?
According to Vegas they did. The Monday morning odds listed at Caesars Sportsbook have Kansas City as the favorites to hoist the trophy for the first time since 1970, after their come-from-behind 51-31 beatdown of the Houston Texans on Sunday. The Chiefs are listed at 11-10, with the 49ers next at 7-5, followed by the Tennessee Titans at 15-2 and Green Bay Packers at 17-2.
The 49ers opened as seven-point favorites for Sunday’s clash vs. the Packers, after destroying Green Bay at Levi’s Stadium earlier this year 37-8. The Packers have not lost since then, stringing together six straight wins including Sunday’s 28-23 victory over the Seahawks. The 49ers covered the seven-point spread easily in their Divisional Round victory over the Minnesota Vikings.
The Chiefs open up as even heavier favorites, giving 7.5 points to a Titans team that beat them 35-32 in November.
