The stage is set. The San Francisco 49ers will be representing the NFC in Super Bowl LIV against the Kansas City Chiefs.

The Chiefs have been deemed the home team, and they will wear their dark jerseys (red jersey, white pants). The 49ers have decided they will wear their traditional road gear (white jersey, gold pants) for the big game, which provides us with some interesting betting insights.

San Francisco is currently a 1.5-point underdog against Kansas City, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.

However, the 49ers have gone 2-0 in their last two Super Bowl appearances in which they wore white tops with gold pants, winning both Super Bowl XVI, 26-21, over the Cincinnati Bengals, and Super Bowl XXIV, 55-10, over the Denver Broncos.

The color of a team's jersey may seem insignificant, but this trend pointed to betting on New England in Super Bowl LIII last year, and that certainly worked out for Patriots' bettors.

Additionally, the 49ers' Super Bowl history in Miami also bodes well for San Francisco. SF is 2-0 in its two Super Bowl appearances in Miami, winning Super Bowl XXIII against the Bengals, 20-16, and Super Bowl XXIX against the San Diego Chargers, 49-26.

The jersey color certainly won't impact the outcome of the game, but the 49ers' record in white and gold seems like a good omen, at least.
