2024 Super Bowl picks, projections, best bets: Experts give score predictions for Chiefs vs. 49ers


Teams wearing white jerseys are 37-20 (.649) in Super Bowl history and the 49ers will don their white jerseys for the Big Game. Teams wearing white jerseys are on an astounding 16-3 run over the last 19 Super Bowls, and those figures could sway bettors when it comes to their 2024 Super Bowl bets for Sunday’s game between the San Francisco 49ers and Kansas City Chiefs. Making Super Bowl score predictions will take more research than simply tracking jersey color since it’s a two-part bet. Picking the team is arguably the easy part as you have just two options, but hitting Super Bowl exact score projections has infinite possibilities. SportsLine’s team of experts have teamed up to give you NFL betting advice and NFL score predictions needed to make the best 2024 Super Bowl picks possible.

The team of experts include proven NFL cappers R.J. White (77-61 NFL run), Jeff Hochman (16-5 NFL), Larry Hartstein (78-56 NFL ATS). White’s NFL picks on SportsLine have returned nearly $1,600 for $100 bettors, while Hochman has been red-hot in recent weeks, posting a 16-5 record over his last 21 NFL picks. Hartstein has a keen eye for betting trends when it comes to the Chiefs, going 32-21 over his last 53 against the spread picks involving Kansas City. 

Now, SportsLine’s NFL experts have analyzed the 2024 Super Bowl and locked in their final score projections for Chiefs vs. 49ers. You can see the exact score projections only at SportsLine.

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. 

For the first part of backing Kansas City, it’s easy to see why Hartstein is predicting a back-to-back champ. Patrick Mahomes is 9-3 straight-up in his career as an underdog, as San Francisco is a 2-point favorite. Andy Reid is also 3-0 straight-up versus Kyle Shanahan, so Kansas City has the edge at quarterback, at head coach, and to the surprise of many, on defense.

The Chiefs held the Dolphins, Bills and Ravens to just 13.7 points per game in this playoff run, after those teams combined to average 28 PPG in the regular season. Meanwhile, the 49ers have allowed 159 playoff rushing yards per game, which is the most by any team entering the Super Bowl since the Super Bowl didn’t have a number after it in the first edition in 1966. Harstein cites Kansas City’s defensive edge, led by All-Pro CB Trent McDuffie, as why he’s backing the Chiefs to repeat in a lower-scoring game than many expect.

“This comes down to how well the Chiefs’ defense, specifically corners Trent McDuffie and L’Jarius Sneed, are playing,” Hartstein told SportsLine. “Did you see Lamar Jackson hold the ball forever as no one got open? Unlike Detroit, K.C. will turn Brock Purdy’s turnover-worthy plays into actual turnovers.” See the rest of the experts’ NFL score projections here
