Who Is the Underdog in Super Bowl 2024?

The Chiefs are underdogs in this year's Super Bowl, the second straight season Andy Reid's team has been set as an underdog on the NFL's biggest stage.

Kansas City opened up as a 2.5-point underdog, but action immediately started flying in on the Chiefs -- likely because of the team's two upset wins already this postseason.

That shifted the line down to Chiefs +1 on Monday. Since then, the odds have shifted back in favor of the 49ers. DraftKings Sportsbook has the 49ers as two-point favorites in this game, and there are other places with the 49ers sitting at -1.5.

Kansas City is +100 on the moneyline to win Super Bowl 58. That means the team's implied probability of capturing its second straight title is exactly 50 percent.

Mahomes, Travis Kelce, Chris Jones, and others have been in this situation before and come out victorious, so bettors shouldn't be overly worried by oddsmakers setting the Chiefs up as dogs.
