The Kansas City Chiefs and San Francisco 49ers will face off in Super Bowl LIV on February 2 beginning at 6:30 p.m. EST. Based on the extremely close current betting odds, this year’s NFL championship could be a classic match-up. 

As of this writing, SportsLine showed that the consensus point spread slightly favored the Chiefs -1.5. The current over/under is 54.5 points, and the money line is Chiefs -122, 49ers +102. That means a $122 bet on the Chiefs would yield a $100 return, while a $100 bet on the 49ers would yield a $102 return.

But there are countless other proposition bets to wager on, from whether the coin toss will land on heads or tails to who will be crowned Super Bowl MVP.
