ASK THE TRADER 🤔

Fanatics Sportsbook Presented by PointsBet creative

Our Super Bowl LVIII matchup is set, as the 49ers and Chiefs are set to square off in Las Vegas 🎲.

The 49ers have failed to cover their two playoff games as favorites, while the Chiefs have emerged victorious in their past two playoff contests despite closing as underdogs 🐶.

Yet, San Francisco still finds itself as a 1-point favorite over Kansas City after the 49ers opened at -1.5. So why is the spread where it is? We called on trader Wyatt Satre to help explain.

ASK THE TRADER: The 49ers have been the more complete team for the entirety of the season and have been the most efficient team during that period. I would have expected them to open a bit bigger of a favorite (closer to -3) if they hadn’t struggled on the defensive side of the ball in both playoff games. Several books opened at 49ers -1.5 or -2 and the market quickly moved it to -1 last night due to immediate sharp action.

EXPERT PICKS

Let's start off the week strong with Ariel Epstein and Ryan Elmalem's three top props on this upcoming NBA slate.

THE PROP QUEEN

Clippers G James Harden Over 18.5 Points (-105) [7 p.m. ET]
"The last five lead guards to face the Cavaliers have put up 21.8 points per game. Harden has scored 25.1 points per game in his career against Cleveland."
Wizards G Jordan Poole Over 16.5 Points (-110) [8 p.m. ET]
"The Spurs' perimeter defense has been shaky, as lead guards have dropped 27.6 PPG against them in the past five games. Poole has averaged 22 points in his last four road contests."

THE GRAPHICS GUY

SGP (+110): Kings Moneyline + Domantas Sabonis Over 12.5 Rebounds
"The Grizzlies' injury report looks like a CVS receipt and the Kings will exploit that like they did in a 31-point drubbing in their last meeting. Sabonis had 21 rebounds that game and should continue his dominance on the glass."

CRAZY COMEBACK

WHAT WERE THE ODDS? 🏈

The 49ers have been comeback kings 👑 so far this postseason. They were as long as +240 live on the moneyline in the Divisional Round against the Packers before storming back to a 24-21 victory.

That was just the appetizer, though, as San Francisco pulled off the biggest halftime comeback in conference championship history.

The 49ers were down 17 points to the Lions 🦁 at the break and their live moneyline odds were as high as +425 in the contest. That price flashed when the Lions were driving in 49ers territory with nine minutes left in the third quarter with a 14-point lead.

PARLAY PAR-TAY

BIG WIN 💰

Fanatics Sportsbook Presented by PointsBet creative

When you have a 13-leg same-game parlay consisting of only overs like this Illinois bettor, it certainly helps when the game goes into double overtime 🎉.

As a result, this $10 wager from Lakers-Warriors on Saturday night turned into an $8,000 win.
