Heading into the NFL Playoffs as the No. 2 seed in the AFC with the third-best odds to win it all, according to FanDuel Sportsbook, the Kansas City Chiefs have now climbed into the league's driver seat by the latest odds to win Super Bowl LIV.

After falling behind by an enormous 24-0 margin to the Houston Texans in the 2019-20 AFC Divisional Round, the Chiefs stormed back to win, 51-31, in incredible fashion on their way to securing a spot in the 2019-20 AFC Championship game.

Kansas City Chiefs' Odds to Win the Super Bowl

The Chiefs' odds to win Super Bowl LIV (+125) have now surged past the San Francisco 49ers (+145) as the league's new overall betting favorites remaining in the 2019-20 NFL Playoffs, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.

The Chiefs have opened as relatively large 7.5-point favorites over the Titans, according to FanDuel Sportsbook, against an underdog team that is fresh off shocking the AFC's No. 1 seed Baltimore Ravens on the road in the Divisional Round.

As for the team with the second-best odds, the 49ers also saw a noticeable leap in the odds after handling the Minnesota Vikings, 27-10, at home in the NFC Divisional Round as well, climbing from +320 to +145.

Despite facing a No. 6 seed in this year's AFC Championship, the Chiefs still appear to have a tough challenge awaiting them in KC with the way the Titans have been playing lately, yet the Chiefs remain the overall favorites to win it all heading into conference championship weekend.
