Betting Impact:

Chris Jones played only 28 of a possible 66 defensive snaps against the Tennessee Titans, but they were impact snaps. He was a major factor against both the pass and the run, stuffing Derrick Henry on multiple occasions. With the 49ers running game humming , they are going to need Jones at close to full snaps to force Jimmy G to beat them. Jones playing 75 percent of the snaps or more as opposed to the 42 percent he played in the Divisional Round will increase the Chiefs probability to both win the game, and to cover the spread.
