A year after the lowest-scoring Super Bowl in history, we could see plenty of points in the 2020 NFL championship game. That’s what the betting odds indicate, at least, for Sunday’s contest between the Kansas City Chiefs and San Francisco 49ers.

Nearly 48 hours before Super Bowl LIV kicks off, the over/under sits at 54.5 at Las Vegas sportsbooks. According to OddsShark, it’s the fourth-highest total in Super Bowl history.

The New England Patriots and Los Angeles Rams were expected to have a shootout last year before Tom Brady and Co. won Super Bowl LIII 13-3. The highest total came three years ago when the Patriots beat the Atlanta Falcons 34-28, needing overtime to push the final score of Super Bowl LI over 57.5. When the New Orleans Saints beat the Indianapolis Colts 31-17 in Super Bowl XLIV, the total was 57 as Drew Brees and Peyton Manning faced off.

The total has gone over in five of the last seven Super Bowls.

Super Bowl LII became the second-highest scoring Super Bowl when the Philadelphia Eagles beat New England 41-33 two years ago. Super Bowl XXIX holds the record for most points scored as San Francisco beat the San Diego Chargers 49-26.

The ingredients are there for Super Bowl LIV to feature a ton of points. Patrick Mahomes is the NFL’s best quarterback, and he’s helped the Chiefs average 43 points in their two playoff games. The 49ers are averaging 32 points per game this postseason.

San Francisco led the NFC in the regular season with 29.9 points per game. Kansas City scored 28.2 points per contest.

The 49ers do have one of the league’s best defenses. After ranking second in total yards allowed, San Francisco has given up 30 points in the playoffs.

The Chiefs have given up 55 points this postseason, but the unit finished the regular season strong. Kansas City actually gave up fewer points than San Francisco in 2019, surrendering 19.3 points per contest.

Four of the last nine Super Bowls have featured at least 55 total points.
