(1) Kansas City Chiefs vs. (1) Philadelphia Eagles Odds
With Jalen Hurts leading the Eagles and Patrick Mahomes leading the Chiefs, it will be the first ever Super Bowl to see two black quarterbacks facing off. Both quarterbacks are finalists for the 2022 NFL campaign’s MVP award, so there’s no doubt that Mahomes versus Hurts will be a must-see offensive duel. Not to mention we’re dealing with two very potent and diverse offensive schemes courtesy of Kansas City’s Andy Reid and Philadelphia’s Nick Sirianni.
The real question is going to be, which defense can create more turnovers and mistakes. The Eagles pass rush this season has been the stuff of legends, racking up 71 sacks during the campaign, third-most all-time. They also allowed the second-fewest yards per game and had the fifth-most takeaways. With the Chiefs defense sitting in the middle of the pack for most defensive categories, it seems Philly is coming in with the slight edge on defense, which is probably a big reason the Eagles are coming in as the slight favorites on most NFL betting lines.
Kansas City Chiefs Betting Preview
There’s no arguing that the Chiefs had the tougher road to the Super Bowl of the two teams participating. This will also be the third Super Bowl in the last four seasons for a lot of players on the Kansas City roster. This team is battle-tested. Over the past two seasons the offensive line unit has been completely revamped and this year they gave up just 26 sacks, third-fewest in the NFL. The clash between the Eagles ferocious defensive line and the Chiefs offensive line will be one of the most crucial matchups to watch here.
It will also be important to see how Mahomes’ ankle heals during the two weeks leading up to the big game, because with such a ferocious pass rush, it’s likely that he’ll have to be able to move around and avoid pressure. Kansas City receivers Mecole Hardman, Juju Smith-Schuster, and Justin Watson all missed or didn’t finish the AFC Championship Game, so it will also be important that the receiving corps gets healthy to give Mahomes quick options when the pass rush does get to him.
Philadelphia Eagles Betting Preview
The Eagles are the definition of a well-rounded team, finishing second in defensive yards allowed per game and third in offensive yards per game. They also led the league in sacks, had the fifth-most takeaways, and were top ten in both passing yards and rushing yards per game. There are very few holes in this team, if there are any at all.
The 49ers gave up just 78 yards a game on the ground during the season and the Eagles were still able to run all over them in the NFC Championship Game even with Hurts not quite at 100 percent. The Eagles have spent the least amount of time trailing in the NFL this season thanks to that running game. If they get up early, it will be tough for the Chiefs to climb back into the game, but if Philadelphia gets down early, it will be a challenge that they haven’t experienced much this season.
- The Chiefs are 4-10-1 ATS after a win this season
- Travis Kelce has caught 7+ passes in 7 of his last 8 playoff games
- The Chiefs gave up the 4th most receiving yards to RBs this season
- The Over is 4-1 when the Eagles play an AFC opponent this season
