The Chiefs hold the edge over the Niners in terms of passing offence, and San Francisco holds the edge over Kansas City on the ground.
What does set these two teams apart, however, is San Francisco’s defence. The Niners rank dead last in passing yards allowed and sixth in total sacks. If the front seven can establish dominance early against Kansas City’s questionable offensive line, this game – and their sixth Lombardi – is theirs for the taking.
San Francisco can also feel confident in their red zone defence. This is a unit that has allowed the ninth-fewest red zone touchdowns, which spells trouble for a Chiefs team that finished the regular season ranked 20th in red zone touchdowns scored.

Tip: San Francisco 49ers at $2.06
The MVP award might be the most biased in all of sports. Considering seven of the last 10 winners have all been quarterbacks, chances are if you don’t throw the ball, you won’t even get a look in.
With Patrick Mahomes and Jimmy Garoppolo squaring off this year, the chances of a quarterback reclaiming the MVP award are fairly high. Mahomes, last year’s regular season MVP, is the current favourite, but there is a case to be made for a running back this time around.
Raheem Mostert destroyed the Packers in the NFC Championship Game rushing for 220 yards and four touchdowns. The Chiefs did well to hold Derrick Henry to only 69 yards and a score in the AFC Championship game, but can we really trust a Kansas City front line that has allowed the seventh-most rushing yards in the league?
San Francisco made no secret of how confident they are in their running game against Green Bay. Considering Mostert is averaging 6.78 yards per-carry so far during the playoffs, the current quote looks well over the odds.
Finally, if you’re looking for a smoky to wager on, make it Nick Bosa. Two linebackers – Malcolm Smith and Von Miller – both won the Super Bowl MVP award last decade. Bosa has recorded three sacks and eight tackles so far during the playoffs, making the 22-year-old a worthwhile bet to become the first rookie to be named MVP.
Tip: Raheem Mostert at $8.00
