Super Bowl predictions: Experts pick if 49ers or Chiefs will win SB LVIII

As the 2003 NFL season winds to a close, there is just one order of business left to settle: seeing which team will win Super Bowl LVIII in Las Vegas.

Will it be the Patrick Mahomes-led Kansas City Chiefs, who are in search of a third championship in five years?

Or will be the San Francisco 49ers, who are out to avenge their loss in Super Bowl LIV to these very Chiefs?
