How They Got Here | SB LVIII
The Kansas City Chiefs come into this game after three impressive postseason wins. The Chiefs beat the Miami Dolphins at home, and then went on the road and beat the Buffalo Bills and the Baltimore Ravens on the road. In those three games, the Chiefs allowed just 41 points. That is just 13.6 points per game. Offensively, the Chiefs were just fine, scoring 23.3 points per game.
For the San Francisco 49ers, after garnering the top seed in the NFC, with their 12-5 record, they needed just two postseason wins. Both wins were at home. First, it was the Green Bay Packers. Then, the Detroit Lions came to town. In those two wins, the 49ers averaged 29 points per game, and allowed teams to score 26. The 49ers played in high scoring games, but it has led to their defense being under fire after allowing 21 to Green Bay and 31 to Detroit.
Key Players to Watch | SB LVIII
When you think of the San Francisco 49ers offense, you think Christian McCaffrey. The former Carolina Panthers running back was the best non quarterback offensive player during the regular season. McCaffrey finished 41 yards shy of 1,500 during the regular season with 14 touchdowns. He also added 7 receiving touchdowns as well.
During the postseason, the running back has been solid as well. McCaffrey went for 98 yards in the win over Green Bay, and 90 against Tampa Bay. He has two touchdowns in both games. There is no doubt the emphasis for the tough Kansas City defense will be on the running back.
On the other side, a guy tat has already won two Super Bowl MVP awards; Patrick Mahomes will guide the Chiefs offense in the big game. This is his fourth trip to the Super Bowl, and he is just 28 years old. Mahomes has yet to turn the ball over this postseason, throwing the ball 103 times in three games.
He will turn to Travis Kelce when push comes to shove. Kelce, the famous tight end, also known for dating Taylor Swift has three postseason touchdowns so far. Kelce had 11 receptions, as the go to guy, with over 100 yards in the AFC title game win at Baltimore.
Final Over/Under Prediction for Super Bowl LVIII | MyBookie Writer’s Choice
In the end, we are going to take the UNDER. Part of what has allowed the Kansas City Chiefs to be so successful in the postseason has been their defense. Look for the defense to be the key again, as they hold Brock Purdy and the 49ers to just 17 points in this game. Our final score prediction for this game is the Kansas City Chiefs 27-17 over the San Francisco 49ers.
Take the UNDER in Super Bowl LVIII. Enjoy the game and best of luck!
