The numbers can change as the week progresses, especially with the health of one of the quarterbacks a major question mark. For now, both home teams are favored to win.
Via BetMGM, the Eagles are 2.5-point favorites over the 49ers, and the Chiefs are one-point favorites over the Bengals.
Even if it’s just one point, the Bengals will relish the idea of being the underdog again. They’ve beaten all three Chiefs teams in the 2022 calendar year, and quarterback Patrick Mahomes has a sprained ankle. Even if he plays (and he surely will), he won’t be able to do what he usually does. And all three Bengals wins came when Mahomes got to do what he usually does.
Either way, we’ll find out which two teams will face off in Super Bowl LVII a week from tonight. It will be Chiefs-Eagles, Chiefs-49ers, Bengals-Eagles or Bengals-49ers. Any of these wouldn’t be too shabby.
One combination – Bengals-49ers – would be a rematch of Super Bowl XVI and Super Bowl XXIII. Both games were won by the 49ers, as anyone who pays attention to the NFL knows.
