Chiefs At 49ers Betting Insights
Why The Chiefs Can Cover The Spread
The 49ers defensive injuries have brought a once incredible defense to its proverbial knees. They actually allowed 28 points to the Atlanta Falcons in a spot where, frankly, the matchup was about as good as possible for the Niners. With this secondary in shambles, how in the world are they going to slow down the Chiefs? There’s an immense amount of pressure on the 49ers front to get to Patrick Mahomes. If they don’t the Chiefs are just going to put up too many points for a grindy San Francisco offense to keep up.
Why The 49ers Can Cover The Spread
Since a strong start, the Chiefs defense has become progressively more vulnerable. Injuries play a role, but its unknown when Rashad Fenton and Trent McDuffie will return. Low-pedigree rookies are taking their place, and Kyle Shanahan will make sure they are targeted. Plus, few teams have tackled worse than the Chiefs, and the 49ers’ best skill players on offense excel at breaking tackles.
Reasons To Bet The Over
Neither defense is healthy. That’s pretty much the story here, and while the number is pretty high, especially by 2022 standards, these offenses are dangerous enough when the opposition is healthy.
Reasons To Bet The Under
QB pressure. The Chiefs don’t bring it at a tremendously high rate, but Chris Jones’ interior disruption made Jimmy Garoppolo very uncomfortable when these teams met in the Super Bowl a few years ago. And we know what the 49ers can do, pressuring opposing passers at the second-highest rate in the NFL.
Chiefs At 49ers Matchups To Watch For
49ers Skill Players Vs. Chiefs Tackling
Tackling has not been a strong suit for the Chiefs, an issue for several years now. This year, PFF has them in the bottom 10 in tackling grade, and the 49ers’ top skill guys are not known to go down easily. Both George Kittle and Deebo Samuel are adept at turning shorter stuff into longer gains. Samuel in particular poses a huge problem here, especially with Rashad Fenton potentially out (his tackling is excellent).
Nick Bosa Vs. Chiefs Tackles
Getting pressure without blitzing has allowed the 49ers defense to excel thus far. They buried the Rams in particular and also brought the Seahawks down, which looks much more impressive in light of Geno Smith’s continued outstanding play. The edges of the Chiefs line have been vulnerable so far, particularly longtime backup Andrew Wylie, pressed into service as a starter. Can a banged up Bosa still dominate? And if he does, can Mahomes escape and make plays?
Travis Kelce Vs. 49ers Coverage
Few teams have as strong a group of linebackers and safeties as the 49ers in terms of coverage. Dre Greenlaw, Fred Warner and Talanoa Hufanga have all been excellent there, but Travis Kelce obviously brings a unique challenge due to his incredible route running and mental connection with Mahomes. Limiting Kelce would go a long way toward rendering the KC offense less potent.
Years later, the 49ers will look to exact revenge for their Super Bowl loss with the Chiefs coming to their house. However, the run of poor injury luck, a frequent problem in recent years, does not appear to have cleared up. While Trent Williams and Nick Bosa look likely to go, several other pieces in the secondary and up front remain in question. If you like where the injury report is heading, the 49ers make sense as a home underdog play here, probably on the moneyline since points won’t be at a premium in a game with a higher total. As far as props go, look to potentially buy low on some of KC’s receivers against inexperienced 49ers DBs.
