Super Bowl 58 on Sunday will pit Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs against Christian McCaffrey and the San Francisco 49ers. Mahomes is 3-0 straight up as a postseason underdog in his career, while the 49ers are 6-0 straight-up as postseason favorites under Kyle Shanahan. San Francisco is favored by two points in the latest 2024 Super Bowl odds, as San Francisco is the only team that has been favored in every game this season. Many will also favor the Niners with their Super Bowl score predictions even with Mahomes’ success as an underdog.

Top Super Bowl 58 predictions
One of the Super Bowl score projections is from Larry Hartstein, who is 78-56 (+1544) over his last 134 NFL against the spread picks, backing the Chiefs to beat the 49ers in a 24-23 thriller.
Mahomes’ success as an underdog cannot be overstated. Among 320 quarterbacks with at least 10 starts as an underdog, Mahomes ranks first in outright record (9-3), first in passer rating (113.4) and first in team points per game (33.2). He also enters Super Bowl Sunday with six straight playoff starts without an interception, which is the longest streak in NFL history.
As a whole, Kansas City allowed 17.3 points in the regular season, and it’s been even better in the postseason. It has allowed just 13.7 points per game, despite facing three top-six scoring offenses. Hartstein expects Kansas City’s defense to again contain a high-scoring offense on Sunday, while Mahomes maintains his perfection as an underdog. The Chiefs won their final game of the regular season by one point, and Hartstein expects another single-point victory for KC in its final game of the postseason.
