Super Bowl 2020: Live stream, start time and where to watch for free without cable. It’s almost kickoff, so make sure you’ve got a Super Bowl live stream figured out, so you can watch the big game. There might be minor complexities to figuring out how you’ll get the best, crispest picture for Super Bowl LIV, but watching the Kansas City Chiefs face San Francisco 49ers on your TV (or phone or tablet) won’t be especially hard — it’s all about finding the best stream for your needs.
As for the game itself? Betters already know the Chiefs are the -1.5 point favorite, according to Caesar’s in Las Vegas. This teeny point differential just screams “anything can and will happen.” Check out our guide to the Super Bowl commercials if you’re looking for something to watch prior to the big game.
It’s arguable that Kansas City is slightly favored because of their ability to come from behind. In the AFC championship game, Patrick Mahomes’ team quickly found themselves down 10-0 to the Titans before turning things around and winning 35 to 24. The Niners on the other hand, got on top of the Packers, and stayed there — with a final score of 37 to 20.
