Super Bowl LVIII predictions: NFL Wire editors favoring Chiefs over 49ers

The San Francisco 49ers and Kansas City Chiefs are just about ready to square off in Super Bowl LVIII, a rematch of the big game four years ago. The Chiefs won that battle, 31-20, but the 49ers come into this game as the slight favorites over Patrick Mahomes’ squad.

While San Francisco is likely the more talented team, the Chiefs have won two of the last four Super Bowls and will try to make it three in a five-year span.

With this marquee matchup right around the corner, our NFL Wire editors each predicted which team would win. Surprisingly, the Chiefs are heavily favored despite technically being the underdogs, but it’s hard to bet against Mahomes, Travis Kelce and Andy Reid.

Here are our official Super Bowl LVIII predictions.
