At the onset of Super Bowl betting it was quickly apparent that gamblers weren’t stepping out on anyone’s side. The Chiefs and 49ers are getting almost equal wagering support with Kansas City starting the week as 1.5-point chalk. Bettors love Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes as a man that literally take over a game. The 2018 NFL Most Valuable Player is a relentless player and leader. Counter to that is a 49ers team that appears to be more complete. San Francisco may not be as dynamic as Kansas City but is perhaps more solid.
