On this occasion, we have two equal teams. Both boast defenses that are assets with the NFL betting odds. However, Kansas City has picked up its play to a higher level in the playoffs. At the same time, San Francisco has not. Finally, the ultimate difference in this game is Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes. San Francisco QB Brock Purdy does not compare. Mahomes and the Chiefs have shown that when it matters most, they clamp down and get the job done with professional efficiency.
