Kyle Shanahan found himself on the wrong side of the greatest comeback in Super Bowl history three years ago when the Atlanta Falcons blew a 28-3 lead in the second half to the New England Patriots.
Over a week before the big game and the San Francisco 49ers head coach is right back in that situation against the Kansas City Chiefs in Super Bowl LIV.
One sportsbook is giving bettors an opportunity to wager on the 49ers blowing a 28-3 lead in the Super Bowl, according to ESPN’s David Purdum.
“At sportsbook PointsBet, Shanahan is 100-1 to blow another 28-3 lead in the Super Bowl. Shanahan was the offensive coordinator for the Atlanta Falcons, when they squandered a 28-3 lead to the New England Patriots in Super Bowl LI.”
PointsBet’s odds of the 49ers blowing a 28-3 lead are 100-1. Might seem shocking, but the Kansas City Chiefs might be the only team in the league that could erase that type of deficit. We’ve seen them in the postseason already come back from a 24-0 second quarter deficit in their AFC Divisional Round matchup two weeks ago and ultimately won 51-31 thanks to a playoff record eight consecutive touchdown drives.
Patrick Mahomes is averaging 307.5 passing yards and four touchdowns through two playoff games, and his KC offense is averaging 32.7 points scored over the last seven games (including the postseason). This team is built to play from in front and from behind.
