We are only days away from the Chiefs facing the 49ers in Super Bowl LVIII in Las Vegas. While Patrick Mahomes looks for his third ring in his fourth trip, Brock Purdy hopes to add to his Mr. Irrelevant fairytale by giving the Niners their first Super Bowl since 1994.
The Rotoworld Football Crew has been in Vegas covering the game all week. Matthew Berry and the folks at Fantasy Football Happy Hour had a chance to sit down with several big-name players, including Rams rookie wide receiver Puka Nacua, while RotoPat and Denny Carter crossed paths with draft guide cover boy Tony Pollard.
Denny also took some time to give us a Super Bowl edition of the Funnel Defense, which you’ll want to read if you’re looking to hit it big in a Super Bowl DFS contest.
In addition to our predictions for Super Bowl Sunday, be sure to go back and check out all the exciting things the guys have going on in Vegas, and stick with us through the offseason as we prepare to crank out content for free agency and the upcoming NFL Draft.
Without further adieu, let’s see how our staff thinks things go come Sunday.
Patrick Daugherty — Chiefs 24 – 49ers 20
The game unfolds similarly to Kansas City’s playoff triumphs over the Bills and Ravens, with the Chiefs’ elite defense frazzling a not-Patrick-Mahomes quarterback as the man himself avoids anything resembling a mistake as the Chiefs matriculate the ball down the field just enough times to win their third Lombardi in five seasons.
Denny Carter — 49ers 38 – Chiefs 10
The math is not allowing me to see this as an even affair or anything close to it. The Niners are a machine, and their offense matches up well with a top-end Kansas City defense that should be bludgeoned via the run here. I really believe the 49ers could crack 200 rushing yards in this game. This Chiefs team does not have the ability to score points quickly. They’ll be forced to dink and dunk their way down the field. That won’t be enough. Niners win in a dominant performance.
