The 49ers host the Chiefs for Week 7, and Niner Noise breaks down some solid prop bets to look at, courtesy of our friends over at WynnBET.

San Francisco 49ers fans are probably going to have to endure a few highlight-reel clips this Sunday of what went down in Super Bowl LIV when the Niners suffered a heartbreaking loss to the Kansas City Chiefs in February of 2020.

With Kansas City coming to town for a Week 7 showdown at Levi’s Stadium, there’ll surely be some flashbacks to that 3rd-and-long 45-yard pass from quarterback Patrick Mahomes against broken coverage or how quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo overthrew wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders late in the fourth quarter on what could have been a game-winning drive.

We just have to endure watching those clips.

However, if San Francisco emerges as an underdog victor in Week 7, it’ll feel a little better. If the 49ers learned a few tricks and tips from the Buffalo Bills’ Week 6 victory over KC, they’d be that much wiser.

Currently, the oddsmakers over at WynnBET list the Niners as 2.5-point underdogs, yet the opening line was at -3 in favor of Kansas City.

With San Francisco getting some reinforcements back from injuries, a healthier squad would certainly be better equipped to handle Mahomes and the NFL’s No. 1-ranked offense this Sunday.

Let’s explore some of the other intriguing prop bets that fans may want to look at for the game.

49ers vs. Chiefs prop bet: Travis Kelce finds the end zone (-105)

There are few offensive weapons as prolific in the NFL right now as Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce, who leads KC with 455 receiving yards and seven touchdowns.

And, according to our advanced math, that’s averaging more than one score per game.

Now, the 49ers have only allowed two touchdowns to tight ends this season, so it might be a tall order to get Kelce into the end zone.

However, with a -105 favorite (best among all TD scorers) to record a touchdown just once on Sunday, adding Kelce to this betting prop seems smart.

49ers vs. Chiefs prop bet: Niners covering first-half spread (+1)

Oddsmakers have only a one-point spread for the first half of Sunday’s game, the Chiefs favored at -1.

However, the Niners have mostly been able to frustrate opponents’ offenses in the first half of games this year, perhaps the lone exception being what happened against the Atlanta Falcons last weekend.

And when San Francisco’s offense has clicked, it’s been in the first half.

The 49ers’ first-half scoring differential through six weeks is better than a touchdown at plus-7.7.

Look for the Niners to cover over the first half.

49ers vs. Chiefs prop bet: George Kittle finds the end zone (+400)

Well, it is National Tight End day on Sunday, Oct. 23. And if we’ve listed Kelce as someone who’ll find the end zone, we might as well do it for San Francisco’s own, George Kittle, too.

Interestingly enough, Kittle has been the polar opposite of Kelce in terms of end-zone paydirt, not having yet scored a touchdown this season. Sure, Kittle missed the first two games of the year because of an injury, but it’s still provocative why he hasn’t been called upon to cross the goal line.

With Kelce on the other end of the field, Sunday sure seems like a time for Kittle to buck that recent trend by matching his friend and fellow tight end with a touchdown score.

At +400, that sure seems enticing enough.

49ers vs. Chiefs prop bet: Chiefs race to 21 points first (-110)

Sorry, 49ers fans. Even though the Niners boast one of the league’s best defenses, Kansas City bringing in the No. 1-ranked scoring offense doesn’t bode well against San Francisco’s depleted secondary, which already lost cornerback Emmanuel Moseley to a season-ending ACL tear and could very well be without fellow corner Charvarius Ward.

So, who gets to 21 points first?

KC is averaging 29.8 points per game, while the 49ers are just a shade above 20.

In all likelihood, it’ll be the Chiefs who wind up getting to that three-touchdown threshold first.

The Niners and Chiefs kick off on Sunday, Oct. 23 at 4:25 p.m. from Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, California.
