DID THE 49ers COVER THE SPREAD?

With the top two NFL teams facing one another in the Super Bowl, favorites typically see point spreads in the -1.5 to -5 points range.

Looking back at recent SB results, all of which the number has been -5 or less, tickets on the favorites have lost more than they have cashed, including the previous three Big Games. Super Bowl LIV between the 49ers and Chiefs is the last time a favorite covered the line. Kansas City (-1.5) won the game 31-20.

When talking about SB history overall through 2023, however, favorites covering hold a slight 29-26-2 ATS advantage. The overall result does not include the 2015 game which was a pick’em.

Since the 49ers are playing in the Big Game this year, it’s worth noting the franchise is still the biggest favorite to cover the number. The Niners were an 18.5-point SB XXIX (1995) favorite over the Chargers and easily covered via a 49-26 victory.

The table below provides a recap of the last 15 Super Bowl final scores, including how the favorite fared ATS.
