The 49ers are only minutes removed from winning the NFC Championship game, but they're already slightly favored to beat the Chiefs in Super Bowl 58.

The San Francisco 49ers have a grudge match on the table.

After what went down in the Super Bowl against the Kansas City Chiefs after the 2019 season, the Niners have eagerly awaited their chance to enact some vengeance while securing the franchise's sixth Lombardi Trophy and the first since the 1994 season.

San Francisco will meet KC in Super Bowl 58. But head coach Kyle Shanahan's squad had to get through the Detroit Lions in the NFC Championship game first. After a dramatic 17-point deficit that turned into a massive 34-31 come-from-behind victory, the 49ers did just that.

Coupled with another come-from-behind win over the Green Bay Packers in the divisional round a week prior, the Niners should feel prepared for anything.

Including being favored again for a postseason game.

49ers open as slight betting odds favorite vs. Chiefs in Super Bowl 58

Considering the game is at a neutral site at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas, Nevada, the "home" team won't have the usual three points assigned in the betting spread. Plus, depending on the nature of other X-factors between now and the Super Bowl, it might not be surprising to see that spread increase or decrease, possibly down to a pick 'em.

Especially if oddsmakers take closer looks at the quarterbacking matchup between the 49ers' Brock Purdy and the Chiefs' Patrick Mahomes.

That's two weeks away, though, and there are likely to be plenty of changes between now and then when the two teams kick off against each other on Sunday, Feb. 11 at 6:30 p.m. ET.

Game odds refresh periodically and are subject to change.
