On Sunday, February 11, the Kansas City Chiefs will be at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas, Nevada to play the San Francisco 49ers in Super Bowl LVIII. Kickoff is scheduled for 5:30 p.m. Arrowhead Time.

Kansas City won the right to represent their conference with a 17-10 victory over the Baltimore Ravens in Sunday afternoon’s AFC Championship. Immediately afterward, San Francisco beat the Detroit Lions 34-31 in the NFC Championship.

The Chiefs come into this game as the defending champions, having defeated the Philadelphia Eagles 38-35 in Super Bowl LVII a year ago. This will be Kansas City’s fourth Super Bowl in five seasons. The first of these was following the 2019 season, when the Chiefs defeated the 49ers 31-20.

This will be San Francisco’s first Super Bowl appearance since then — although the team made it to the conference championship game after both the 2021 and 2022 seasons.

According to DraftKings Sportsbook, Kansas City has opened as a one-point underdog in the game.
