The SCOM and SCCM service accounts are system administrators (sa) on my database server.  I can understand them needing to be systme administrator priviledge when they are installed but after they are installed, can I safely back down their priviledges on SQL Server?

Thanks!

Yes, you can turn down some privileges.
Have a good look at the opsmgr db overview and the Technet SCCM DB permissions.
