THE stage is set for Super Bowl LIV.
Kansas City Chiefs and the San Francisco 49ers have battled their way to the showpiece event of the NFL season – and the Vince Lombardi Trophy is up for grabs.
The Chiefs have been propelled to their first Super Bowl since 1970 by superstar quarterback Patrick Mahomes and a high-powered offence.
It could prove to be a fascinating encounter against the 49ers, who have a superb defence and are prepared to vary their attacking plays depending on the opposition.

MANY of you will be neutral viewees for the Super Bowl and might fancy a flutter to spice things up.
One things for sure though – if Mahomes and the Chiefs offence click on the night, there is sure to be fireworks in Miami.
The AFC champions went 12-4 in the regular season and are the narrow favourites to win at the Hard Rock Stadium, despite the 49ers boasting a slightly better record of 13-3.
Mahomes inspired the Chiefs to a stunning fightback against the Texans – where they were 24-0 down in the first quarter – before powering his side past the Titans at Arrowhead.
The 49ers meanwhile dispatched the Vikings and then the Packers with minimal fuss, with the latter achieved despite QB Jimmy Garoppolo throwing the ball just EIGHT times.
That ground game could be key against a Chiefs defence that ranked just 26th against the run in the NFL this season.
With that in mind, SunSport's tip is to ride the Raheem Mostert hype train after the Niners running-back ran in three touchdowns against the Packers.
Here's how the market is shaping up with Ladbrokes ahead of Super Bowl LIV on Sunday, February 2:
- Kansas City Chiefs to win – 4/5
- San Francisco 49ers to win – 21/20
- Raheem Mostert anytime touchdown – 2/5
- Seven or more touchdowns in the game – 11/10
- Pat Mahomes to run in a touchdown and KC to win – 9/2
- Jimmy Garoppolo to throw for 300+ yards and SF to win – 6/1
- Mahomes to throw for 300+ yards and 3+ TDs – 5/2
AT the end of the match, the outstanding player of the game is awarded the Most Value Player award.
This is different to the regular season MVP, which this year has been won by Baltimore Ravens outstanding dual-threat quarterback Lamar Jackson.
Mahomes is the favourite to bag this year's Super Bowl award at just 4/5.
Here's the top ten chances for SB 2020's MVP:
- Patrick Mahomes (KC) – 19/20
