The point spread for Super Bowl LVIII has narrowed, with the Chiefs now favored by just 1.5 points over the 49ers at DraftKings sportsbook. Despite their initial struggles during the regular season, both teams have found success in the playoffs, with the Chiefs winning three games and the 49ers coming back twice to win two games at home.
However, it is surprising that the Chiefs are still considered underdogs, even with a small lead of 1.5 points. The Chiefs and 49ers both experienced setbacks with upset losses on Christmas, but while the 49ers have been maintaining their position, the Chiefs have improved significantly since then.
Despite this improvement, some still doubt Mahomes’ ability to win his third championship title in a row. However, many believe in Mahomes’ talent and his ability to perform under pressure. With this in mind, many are hesitant to count out the Chiefs as underdogs heading into Super Bowl LVIII.
