Chiefs +1.5 Kansas City Chiefs vs Philadelphia Eagles
Over 50.5 Kansas City Chiefs vs Philadelphia Eagles
Well, it’s been a helluva ride, but all good things eventually come to an end, and the 2022/23 NFL season won’t be the exception to that rule, unfortunately. We already have Super Bowl betting odds out there, meaning it’s time to talk about the two best teams in the year and the biggest stage in the football industry.
As many as thirty teams are already getting their offseason work together. Some are thinking of the NFL Draft, some are thankful that Tom Brady finally decided to retire, and others are looking to make moves and revamp their coaching staffs ahead of next season. All while the other two are leaving no stone unturned in their breakdown and analysis of their rival.
It’s Kansas City Chiefs vs. Philadelphia Eagles. Andy Reid against his former team, Nick Sirianni against the guy who didn’t keep him in his coaching staff when he first arrived in Missouri. It’s also Patrick Mahomes vs. Jalen Hurts, Travis Kelce vs. Jason Kelce, and an explosive and electric offense meeting with a stout and physical defense.
So, who’ll prevail? We cannot know for sure. What we can do is break down the Super Bowl betting odds for both teams, the total, and even the money line. So, buckle up as we dig deep into Sunday’s exciting matchup between the AFC and NFC’s finest.
Super Bowl Betting Odds Breakdown
As of now, Super Bowl betting odds have the Philadelphia Eagles favored by 1.5 points, according to FanDuel Super Bowl odds. Notably, they also have most of the money and the tickets on their side, which is one of the few times in recent history when the public isn’t rushing to back Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs.
Notably, even though the early Super Bowl betting odds had the Eagles favored by just one point, we’ve seen them go as high as 2.5 points. That’s unlikely to happen, even if the public jumps on board shortly after kickoff, or we might as well see plenty of buyback from sharps and pros looking to side with the Chiefs.
Moreover, the Super Bowl betting odds for this matchup have the projected game total at a whopping 50.5 points per game, per FanDuel Super Bowl odds. That’s not much of a surprise, considering we’re talking about the no.1 and no. 3 scoring offenses in the NFL this season, not to mention two MVP-leading candidates such as Patrick Mahomes and Jalen Hurts.
Per Bet365 Super Bowl odds, the game total opened at 50 points, and the current Super Bowl betting odds at some markets already have the game at 51 points, so we wouldn’t be surprised if this total keeps rising and gets all the way to 52.5 or even 53 points by kickoff time.
In terms of the betting odds Super Bowl and Moneyline betting, the Philadelphia Eagles currently have Super Bowl betting odds of -119, but we’ve seen them go as high as -125 and as low as -117. As for the Chiefs, looking at Bet365 Super Bowl odds, they’re currently sitting at +110 odds, but we’ve seen them go as high as +115 and as low as even money.
It’s normal to think that the Eagles should be favored ahead of this game in most betting odds Super Bowl debates and online communities, as they’ve been a steamroller in both of their games in the playoffs, and they were the best team during the first half of the season. They’re a completely different team with Jalen Hurts behind center, and he’s finally expected to be back to full strength, not to mention he has the best offensive line in the game.
What To Expect In Super Bowl 57
The Philadelphia Eagles allowed a grand total of 11 sacks throughout the whole season, so this will be an elite test for the Kansas City Chiefs pass rush. They need to stay disciplined, and the secondary defense cannot lose sight of big-play threats like A.J. Brown and DeVonta Smith. Also, the Eagles have a strong running back committee, and the Chiefs’ defense ranked middle-of-the-pack against the run.
The Chiefs will need to do a great job at protecting Patrick Mahomes if they want to outplay their Super Bowl betting odds. He doesn’t need a lot of time to operate and hit his receivers in stride, but the Eagles’ defense already has 70 sacks, and Mahomes has been dealing with a high ankle injury since the AFC Divisional Game vs. the Jacksonville Jaguars. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers pressured him nearly 30 times in his last Super Bowl appearance, giving the Eagles a blueprint on how to stop him.
Even so, Mahomes is arguably coming off the best year of his career, and you can always expect him to deliver when it matters the most. Travis Kelce has proven to be the best tight end in the world, and rookie RB Isaiah Pacheco has fought his way into huge first-down conversions throughout the whole season.
As for the Eagles, Nick Sirianni will need to prove that he’s up to the task of outcoaching a guy like Andy Reid, and he’s not been put in that position often this season. Also, it’ll all come down to whether Jalen Hurts proves that he can be a franchise quarterback, as the last time he was on a big stage, he was benched in favor of Tua Tagovailoa, which is maybe why the Super Bowl betting odds aren’t higher for the Eagles right now.
