Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs were listed as the underdog in three of their four postseason games during their run to Super Bowl 2024, and they proved that the oddsmakers made yet another mistake on Sunday.

The San Francisco 49ers came into the game as 2-point favorites. It was the second time in as many years that the Chiefs came into a Super Bowl with an underdog status, as the Philadelphia Eagles had a one-point edge last year. And while it was a low-scoring affair in comparison to last season, the margin of the game wound up being the exact same, with Kansas City winning by three points to win back-to-back titles.
After the game, Mahomes took a shot at those that ever doubted him and his team. When asked by Jim Nantz on the stage during the trophy presentation about his team’s betting status the last three games:
“Yeah, just know that the Kansas City Chiefs are never underdogs. Just know that.”
While the claim is bold, there isn’t a quarterback in the league that has had more success when the other team is favored. After overcoming the odds in the last three games, Mahomes is now 11-3 in the 14 games in his career that he has been listed as the underdog.
