The Kansas City Chiefs were built with a disappointing end to last season as despite making the Super Bowl to the 2nd straight year and finishing the regular season by having an impressive 14-2 record, the Chiefs had no answers for Tampa Bay in the Super Bowl inside a 31-9 loss.
The great news for that Chiefs is always that no doubt that they are one of many top, otherwise the top, Super Bowl contenders being received by this season led by QB Patrick Mahomes. Mahomes continues to show why he or she is arguably the very best QB in the NFL after finishing last season completing 66.3% of his passes for 4740 yards, 38 TD, & 6 INT. Kansas City did everything they can inside off-season to help improve a shaky offensive line since they will have all new faces at stake led by Joe Thuney & Orlando Brown Jr. Mahomes will still his familiar WR weapons in Tyreek Hill, Travis Kelce, & Mecole Hardman Jr. whilst the backfield will probably be led by Clyde Edwards-Helaire and the man will likely be backed up by Darrel Williams and newly acquired Jerick McKinnon.

Kansas City’s defense was solid last season, holding opponents with an average of 22.6 ppg. The Chiefs defense will still be led by their defensive line stars in Chris Jones & Frank Clark who check out have recover seasons after dealing with injuries last season. Kansas City invested their 2nd round pick in LB Nick Bolton who has high expectations. Kansas City will be returning their outstanding free safety in Tyrann Mathieu and an answer to continued improvement with both Charvarius Ward & L’Jarius Sneed.
San Francisco arrived to last season rich in expectations, but their 2020 season was derailed early largely because of ton of injuries to key players and the 49ers finished the regular season missing the playoffs with just a 6-10 record.
Offensively, San Francisco averaged just 23.5 ppg and after another injury and unproductive season by Jimmy Garoppolo, the 49ers traded as much as draft their QB for the future in North Dakota State’s Trey Lance. Lance certainly looks like he is the QB into the future, however, together with his lack of experience against NFL talent combined with fact he only played one game last season, the 49ers will in all probability be rolling with Garoppolo until their made to create a change. San Francisco has been led by their rushing attack in recent times and it will probably be interesting to find out the way it plays out in 2010 as they have veterans in Raheem Mostert, Jeff Wilson Jr, & Wayne Gallman Jr, while also drafting RB’s inside the draft in Trey Sermon & Elijah Mitchell. The 49ers possess some talent with the receiver position led by TE George Kittle and WR’s Brandon Aiyuk & Deebo Samuel.
Defensively, San Francisco ended the season holding their opponents to 24.4 ppg and it will probably be interesting to see the modifications in the 49ers defense after defensive coordinator Robert Saleh left to train the New York Jets. San Francisco should be quite strong for the defensive line, especially getting Nick Bosa back from injury and still have one of the upcoming LB’s in the lead in Fred Warner. The secondary can look similar after resigning both K’Waun Williams 7 Jaquiski Tartt.
The Chiefs are 11-3-1 ATS inside their last 15 games being an underdog, however, are simply 2-9 ATS inside their last 11 games overall. The 49ers are 8-2 ATS of their last 10 Saturday games, however, are only 2-6 ATS in their last 8 home games.
Kansas City is about to play their starters for 2 series that is bit scary considering their getting points, however, there will likely be a significant drop-off about the offensive end for the Chiefs when they turn out. We should see plenty of QB action from both Jimmy Garoppolo & Trey Lance in addition to being their depth around the offensive end is solid, especially with the RB position, I think the 49ers will fight back after an early Kansas City touchdown and do enough to hide this spread.
