Super Bowl LIV odds: 49ers underdogs vs. Chiefs, favorites vs. Titans

Super Bowl LIV odds: 49ers underdogs vs. Chiefs, favorites vs. Titans

South Beach is calling the 49ers' name, as Kyle Shanahan's club is one win away from booking a trip to Super Bowl LIV in Miami. 

A win over the Green Bay Packers on Sunday in the NFC Championship Game at Levi's Stadium will put the 49ers on the doorstep of glory, with either the Kansas City Chiefs or Tennessee Titans standing between them and a Super Bowl title.

The Niners are heavy favorites over Aaron Rodgers and the Packers, but they aren't a lock to be the favorites in Miami should they get there. Early betting lines show the 49ers would be slight underdogs to the Chiefs, but would be favored over Ryan Tannehill and the No. 6-seed Titans.

Going up against the Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs' dynamic offense would be a whole new challenge for the 49ers' stout defense. Mahomes and Co. can put up points in the blink of an eye, so it's understandable why they would get the edge.

The oddsmakers know the public loves the flash of a good offense, but the smart money normally is on an elite defense with time to prepare.

The Seattle Seahawks and the Legion of Boom stymied Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos in Super Bowl XLVIII. Two years later, Von Miller and the Broncos dragged Manning to a Super Bowl title, bottling up MVP Cam Newton and the Carolina Panthers in the process. 

Even last season, Sean McVay and the flashy Los Angeles Rams were completely shutdown in a defensive masterclass from Bill Belichick and the New England Patriots. 

If they are going to give you points with the Niners, it might be smart to take them. 

But San Francisco has to get to Miami first.

49ers, Titans advancing to Super Bowl LIV would hurt Vegas sportsbooks

49ers, Titans advancing to Super Bowl LIV would hurt Vegas sportsbooks

If early reports are any indication, it seems that everyone and their mother thinks Jimmy Garoppolo and the 49ers will be spending a week in South Florida for Super Bowl LIV come early February.

San Francisco opened as significant favorites over the Green Bay Packers in the NFC Championship Game, and NFL talking heads are already anointing the Niners the best team remaining in the playoffs.

While the oddsmakers in Vegas are giving the 49ers a pretty healthy advantage, that does not mean that those inside the sportsbooks around the country will be rooting for the Niners in Sunday’s contest.

“All along, Frisco has been no good (for the book) because it’s a West Coast team and we’ve got so many books up north and they were already good with (quarterback) Jimmy (Garoppolo),” William Hill sportsbook director Nick Bogdanovich told the Las Vegas Review-Journal. “Back East, we’re really good with the 49ers. The Chiefs and the Packers are both good.”

In addition to San Francisco, the AFC's sixth-seeded Tennessee Titans -- architects of back-to-back shocking playoff upsets over the New England Patriots and top-seeded Baltimore Ravens -- would spell bad news for the oddsmakers if they were to wind up taking down the Kansas City Chiefs in the AFC title game and advancing to Super Bowl LIV.

“Any time a team like Tennessee comes out of the blue, there’s always a chance you can get hurt,” Bogdanovich said. “Back East, we get bludgeoned by the Titans. Anyone but the Titans is what we’re rooting for.”

So a 49ers-Titans Super Bowl matchup would mean big trouble for those who set the odds in Sin City. But if you’re a 49ers fan, a strong run defense going up against Derrick Henry and the Titans sounds a lot more appealing than having to outduel reigning NFL MVP Patrick Mahomes and the high-powered Chiefs offense.

Start getting those bets in now, 49ers fans.
