The Kansas City Chiefs are one win away from making their third straight Super Bowl appearance. In a thrilling back-and-forth game with the Buffalo Bills, Kansas City survived its worst postseason challenge to date. Travis Kelce won it in a touchdown reception in overtime.
Andy Reid’s squad has gone to the AFC Championship Game for the fourth time in a row. Here it will face the Cincinnati Bengals. Cincinnati is the only one of the four conference winners who has not played in the Super Bowl in the previous five years.
The Los Angeles Rams and the San Francisco 49ers represented the NFC in consecutive seasons. The New England Patriots defeated the Rams. On the other hand, the Chiefs defeated the 49ers.
In addition, Los Angeles must end a six-game losing run versus the 49ers to return to the Super Bowl. The last time San Francisco won in the series was in Week 18. The Rams are the favorite to win the NFC Championship Game and go to the Super Bowl. However, the 49ers know how to beat them. It might offer them the best value on the Super Bowl futures market. No one can deny that Kansas City is the Super Bowl favorite.
Why are Kansas City Favourite?
Andy Reid’s club is the clear favorite among the four teams competing in the final game. In each of the previous four seasons, it has reached this point. In the previous two years, Kansas City has defeated the Tennessee Titans and Buffalo Bills. However, it fell short in overtime against the New England Patriots in 2018.
Due to their considerable experience in the AFC Championship Game, the Kansas City Chiefs have a significant advantage over the Cincinnati Bengals. The Bengals, led by Joe Burrow, showed no fear on the road against the Titans in the divisional round. But they will confront a different set of challenges at Arrowhead Stadium. If San Francisco supporters pack the stadium, it will reduce the Rams’ home-field advantage.
Keeping in mind its long losing run versus the 49ers and doubts about its second-half problems, Los Angeles will play carefully this time. Although Jimmy Garoppolo has more championship game experience than Stafford, the 49ers’ rushing assault will be the more effective. The 49ers may potentially set up a Super Bowl rematch with the Chiefs. If you’re still searching for value on the futures market, San Francisco is the better option than Cincinnati since it’s the more probable underdog winner.
