NFL Super Bowl LVIII picks, projections, best bets: Experts make score predictions for Chiefs vs. 49ers

In the rematch of Super Bowl LIV, the San Francisco 49ers and the Kansas City Chiefs are set to face off in Super Bowl 58. The 49ers are considered slight favorites with a 2-point spread, and the over/under for total points scored is set at 47.5.

Kansas City, aiming for back-to-back titles, has shown remarkable consistency in the playoffs, winning 13 out of their last 15 games and covering the spread in 11 of those matches. The Chiefs defeated Baltimore in the AFC Championship Game to secure their spot in the Super Bowl.

San Francisco, on the other hand, clinched their Super Bowl berth with a comeback victory over Detroit in the NFC Championship Game. However, they have only covered the spread once in their last five games.

SportsLine’s team of experts, including R.J. White, Jeff Hochman, and Larry Hartstein, have provided insights and score projections for the Super Bowl. Hartstein, with a strong record in NFL against the spread picks, predicts a close 24-23 victory for the Chiefs in what he anticipates to be an instant classic.

The Chiefs have been dominant in the playoffs, winning six consecutive games since last year’s postseason, and covering the spread in five of those victories. Despite some struggles towards the end of the 2023 season, they have been flawless since then, going 5-0 straight-up and against the spread.

Ultimately, Hartstein believes that the Chiefs’ playoff experience and consistency will be the difference-maker in Super Bowl 58. He suggests that San Francisco might struggle to convert touchdowns and might settle for field goals, contributing to the Chiefs’ victory.
