Super Bowl LVIII between the Kansas City Chiefs and the San Francisco 49ers is set to begin shortly in Las Vegas, Nevada at Allegiant Stadium. This is an open discussion thread where you can talk about the game in real-time with other football fans in the comment section. The 49ers have a chance to join the New England Patriots and the Pittsburgh Steelers with six Super Bowl wins in franchise history.
The 49ers are narrowly favored by two points, but it remains hard to pick against Mahomes at this point in his career, especially with the elite defense they have in Kansas City. The 49ers have a pretty great defense of their own and have a wide variety of weaposn on offense including Christian McCaffrey, Brandon Aiyuk, Deebo Samuel, and George Kittle.
Regardless of the outcome, there will be some former Steelers getting a Super Bowl win, though the 49ers feature the only former Steelers that will actually be playing. DT Javon Hargrave and WR Ray-Ray McCloud will both have a chance to earn their first Super Bowl rings.
Here are the Super Bowl picks from the Steelers Depot staff:
