WHAT TO KNOW ABOUT THE 2020 SUPER BOWL MATCH-UP:
Kansas City Chiefs vs. San Francisco 49ers
About the Kansas City Chiefs:
Patrick Mahomes has been playing out of his mind in the playoffs. In the Chiefs’ 51-31 win over the Houston Chiefs in the AFC Divisional Round, Mahomes went off for 321 passing yards and five touchdowns. He followed that up with another fantastic performance in the AFC title game, passing for 294 yards and three touchdowns and rushing for a score to lead the Chiefs to a 35-24 win over the Tennessee Titans. With such a deep core of receivers led by tight end Travis Kelce, Mahomes is able to maximize his arm in finding targets downfield. Don’t sleep on the Chiefs’ defense, too. The Chiefs have recorded eight sacks in these playoffs.
The Chiefs are 7-0-1 against the spread (ATS) in their last eight outings.
The Chiefs are 6-0-1 ATS in their last seven games after a victory.
The Chiefs are 6-0-1 ATS in their last seven games in which they were the favorites.
The Chiefs are 5-0 ATS in their last five games against teams with at least a .500 record.
About the San Francisco 49ers:
The 49ers’ defense isn’t just good — it’s scary good. The Minnesota Vikings and the Green Bay Packers combined for only 30 points against San Francisco in the playoffs. In the NFC Championship Game, Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers could barely afford enough time to see his targets, as 49ers pass rushers were so quick in getting to him in the pocket. San Francisco sacked Rodgers three times and intercepted him twice. Dee Ford, Nick Bosa, Arik Armstead, and DeForest Buckner are going to be busy chasing the much more mobile Mahomes in Super Bowl 54.
The 49ers are 5-0 against the spread (ATS) in their last five games as the underdogs.
The 49ers are 6-1 ATS in their last seven games versus teams with .500 or better records.
The 49ers are 5-1 ATS in their last six games after a win.
The 49ers are 6-2-1 ATS in their last nine games.
