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

The San Francisco 49ers will have revenge on their minds as they gear up to face the Kansas City Chiefs in Super Bowl 58 on Sunday at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas at 6:30 p.m. ET. There are several players on Kyle Shanahan’s roster who played for the team in 2020 when the 49ers fell to Andy Reid’s Chiefs in Super Bowl 54. Now, with the addition of players like Christian McCaffrey, Brandon Aiyuk and Brock Purdy, the 49ers will look to get payback and win their first Super Bowl since 1995 and come through for anyone who backed them with their Super Bowl score projections.

San Francisco has a tall task in front of them, going up against a Patrick Mahomes-led Chiefs team that has appeared in four of the last five Big Games and is coming off a Super Bowl 57 victory against the Philadelphia Eagles. Will the Chiefs be back-to-back champions or will the 49ers get redemption and crush anyone who faded them with their Super Bowl 58 score predictions? 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.

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. 

While the 49ers were known for having the better defense through the regular season, the Chiefs defense has been more consistent through the playoffs. Kansas City has held all three of its playoff opponents to 13.7 points per game, which includes holding the Baltimore Ravens rush to just 81 yards in the AFC Championship Game. Meanwhile, San Francisco has allowed 159 rushing yards in each of their two appearances leading up to the Super Bowl.

The 49ers have come from behind in both of their games so far in the playoffs, including a massive comeback against the Detroit Lions in the NFC Championship game where they climbed out of a 24-7 hole to win 34-31. Kansas City’s defense won’t have the luxury of sitting back against San Francisco’s multi-faceted offense, and Harstein sees them holding on for a victory in a close game. See the rest of the experts’ NFL score projections here
