The sportsbooks at PointsBet, Bet America and DraftKings each installed the Chiefs as a 1.5-point favorite minutes after the 49ers wrapped up a 37-20 home victory over the Green Bay Packers in the NFC Championship Game.
Earlier in the day, Kansas City roared back from an early 10-0 deficit to romp 35-24 over the visiting Tennessee Titans in the AFC title game.
The over-under number was set from 52 to 53 at the three sportsbooks. At PointsBet, Kansas City was -130 on the moneyline, with the 49ers at +110. The moneyline indicates how much money a person would have to bet on the favorite to win the game in order to win $100 (the negative number) or how much money a bettor would win if they bet $100 on the underdog to win the game (the positive number).
It's a heavyweight matchup featuring one of the NFL's best offenses vs. one of its best defenses. The Chiefs scored 86 points in two playoff games after earning the No. 2 seed in the AFC following a 12-4 regular season. San Francisco was the top seed in the NFC after going 13-3 in the regular season, when the 49ers ranked second in the NFL in total defense (281.8 yards per game) and eighth in scoring defense (19.4 points per game).
