Super Bowl LVIII: vs. Chiefs (-2.5)

Which Super Bowl team had a more impressive playoff run?

Which Super Bowl team had a more impressive playoff run?

The 49ers are 9-10 against the spread (ATS) this season. The Chiefs are 12-7-1 ATS.

Emmanuel Acho, co-host of Speak, said San Francisco’s run to the Super Bowl is more impressive, given the question marks the team faced a year ago after quarterback Brock Purdy tore the ulnar collateral ligament in his right elbow.

“Before the season, most of us had to reserve our opinion on the Niners until what? Until we saw Brock Purdy play, because we didn’t even know what Brock Purdy was going to be capable of doing or not be capable of doing,” Acho said. “We didn’t know if he was going to be able to throw the football.

” … For me, the Niners were still more impressive [this season than the Chiefs].” 

Kansas City (14-6) was favored in its first 16 games, then was a 3.5-point underdog in the regular-season finale against the Los Angeles Chargers. Kansas City won 13-12 despite not playing Patrick Mahomes, Travis Kelce and others. 

The Chiefs were underdogs in their past two playoff games — +2.5 in the divisional round at the Buffalo Bills (27-24) and +4.5 in the AFC Championship Game at Baltimore (17-10).

But there’s hope for Chiefs fans: As a 4-point favorite, the 2017 Patriots lost to Philadelphia in Super Bowl LII, 41-33.
