Super Bowl 58 Bold Predictions

Last Updated: Feb 10, 2024

We’re creeping ever so closer to the Super Bowl 58 kickoff. This one may seem familiar as it’s a rematch of Super Bowl 54, a matchup where the Kansas City Chiefs handily thumped the San Francisco 49ers 31-20 back in 2020.

For this year’s contest, the No. 1 NFC seed Niners face the No. 3 AFC seed Chiefs in Las Vegas on Sunday, Feb. 11, at 6:30 p.m. ET.

Seemingly every NFL Championship Game features outlandish occurrences that pundits could not foresee. We’re doing our best to try to guess some possible Super Bowl crazy happenings below.

Read on for The Game Day NFL staff’s bold predictions for 49ers vs Chiefs in Super Bowl LVIII. Click to read the staff’s full Super Bowl 58 betting predictions.

Super Bowl 58 Bold Predictions

Only 24 Points Scored Combined

Super Bowl 53 back in 2018 was the lowest-scoring Super Bowl. That contest featured just 16 points between the Rams and Patriots and was won by New England, 13-3.

Super Bowl 58 won’t be quite as low, but it won’t be too far off. I foresee a tight defensive struggle with both teams toiling in the single-digits by halftime.

A small flurry of scores will close out the fourth quarter where the 49ers eke out a 14-10 victory over the Chiefs. — MATT DE LIMA

Christian McCaffrey wins Super Bowl MVP

Despite boasting a strong pass defense, K.C. can get gouged at times by the run game. That is where CMC comes in. 2023’s top rusher will run for 125-plus yards and two scores, while collecting Brock Purdy’s only passing TD in a 49ers win.

For what it’s worth, I have a Patrick Mahomes ticket with amazing Super Bowl MVP odds, so I wanted to make sure something less likely, but not truly outrageous, was my prediction. — JEFF HICKS

Isiah Pacheco gets it done, wins Super Bowl MVP as Chiefs roll

Damien Williams should have won Super Bowl MVP in 2020-21 as he rushed for over 100 yards in the Super Bowl and added two touchdowns but was snubbed. That doesn’t happen this time, as Pacheco’s hard-charging rushing style captivates everyone, and he scores two touchdowns on the ground along with 80-plus rushing yards.

The Chiefs looked vulnerable plenty of times this season, but 10 teams have covered in all three playoff games before going to the Super Bowl. Those teams are 10-0 ATS in the Big Game, and I expect the Chiefs to make it 11-0 in this one. — SAM WAGMAN

Super Bowl 58 finishes with the same score as Super Bowl 54

When these two teams met in Feb. 2020, the Chiefs scored 21 fourth-quarter points to rally past the 49ers to claim a 31-20 victory.

San Francisco’s defense has been vulnerable in recent weeks, and Kansas City’s offense is peaking at the right time, so a similar score in the 2024 Super Bowl isn’t out of the question. — JOHN ARLIA

George Kittle wins Super Bowl MVP

The Chiefs are tough on opposing wideouts, boasting a strong secondary that includes L’Jarius Sneed and Trent McDuffie. This could cause the 49ers to funnel targets over the middle to Kittle.

We’ve seen big games from the star tight end this season, including 149 yards vs the Bengals and 126 yards against the Ravens. Let’s take a shot on Kittle to win MVP. — FRANK AMMIRANTE

Brock Purdy will throw a late game-deciding interception

Brock Purdy will throw a decisive interception on a potential game-winning drive and will spark greater debate about how good he is.

The Kansas City secondary has been superb, and the defense will be the difference for the Chiefs this time. Another Purdy comeback attempt will be extinguished in a memorable ending. — SCOTT ENGEL
