2024 Super Bowl picks, projections, best bets: Experts release score predictions for Chiefs vs. 49ers

Super Bowl 58 between the Kansas City Chiefs (14-6) and San Francisco 49ers (14-5) kicks off Sunday, Feb. 11 with a start time of 6:30 p.m. ET on CBS and Paramount+. The participants aren’t a shock since the Chiefs were the preseason Super Bowl favorites at 6-1, with the Niners not far behind at 9-1. Both teams, however, have battled through rough stretches to reach this point.

Top Super Bowl 58 predictions

One of the Super Bowl score projections is from Larry Hartstein, who is 78-56 (+1544) over his last 134 NFL against the spread picks, backing the Chiefs to beat the 49ers in a 24-23 thriller. 

Hartstein notes that Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes is known for his spectacular throws and creativity, but he hasn’t gotten enough credit for how well he’s been protecting the ball. He hasn’t thrown an interception since Christmas Day. The Niners, meanwhile, prefer soft zone coverage under defensive coordinator Steve Wilks, which should give Mahomes the ability to matriculate the ball down the field.

The Niners should be able to move the ball as well with their creative offense, but Hartstein projects that they’ll be forced to settle for more field goals as the Chiefs make the key plays late and win back-to-back Super Bowls. See the rest of the experts’ NFL score projections here
