The Westgate SuperBook in Las Vegas is already taking bets on the four potential games we could see in Super Bowl LIV. If bettors wager on a certain matchup that doesn’t materialize, the bet becomes a ‘no-play’ and gamblers are refunded their money.
If the favorites prevail this Sunday, then San Francisco and Kansas City will collide for the Lombardi Trophy. The Chiefs-49ers is currently a pick ’em with a total of 50.5 points.
That would be the second-highest total of the season for the 49ers, who have had only two totals in the 50s. In Week 1 at Tampa Bay, San Francisco beat the Buccaneers 31-17, with the 48 combined points slithering ‘under’ the 51-point total.
When Atlanta came to Santa Cruz on Dec. 15, it scored two touchdowns in the final two seconds (on a pass to Julio Jones and a fumble recovery in the end zone on the ensuing kickoff) to win 29-22. The 51 combined points went ‘over’ the 50-point total in an unfathomable Bad Beat for ‘under’ supporters.
Kyle Shanahan’s team is installed as a 5.5-point favorite vs. the Titans, who are 7.5-point underdogs Sunday at Kansas City. Tennessee goes to Arrowhead Stadium with a 5-3 record both straight up and against the spread in eight previous games as underdogs.
The total for a potential Tennessee-San Francisco showdown is 44 points. The ‘over’ is 7-3-1 for the 49ers in their last 11 games, while the Titans have seen the ‘over’ go 9-3 in their past 12 outings.
If Tennessee can knock off the second-seeded Chiefs, it will have eliminated the AFC’s top three seeds on the road. For now, the Westgate has Green Bay as a 1.5-point ‘chalk’ vs. the Titans. The total is 44 points.
For a potential Kansas City vs. Green Bay meeting at Super Bowl LIV, the Chiefs are listed as 4.5-point favorites with a total of 53.
