Conference Championship Weekend of the NFL Playoffs has concluded, and the two franchises left standing are the Kansas City Chiefs and Philadelphia Eagles.
The Eagles punched their ticket to Super Bowl LVII by blowing out the #2 seeded San Francisco 49ers who lost QB Brock Purdy to an elbow injury in the first quarter.
The Chiefs made it to the big game by overcoming their nemesis, the Cincinnati Bengals, who had beaten them in their prior three meetings.
With 13 days to go until the Eagles and Chiefs contest for the 2023 Lombardi Trophy, early odds for betting on the Super Bowl are favoring Philadelphia by -2.5.
Super Bowl LVII Betting Line
Kansas City Chiefs vs. Philadelphia Eagles
- Chiefs Point Spread: +2.5
- Chiefs Moneyline: +110
- Eagles Point Spread: -2.5
- Eagles Moneyline: -130
- Over/Under: 50.0
Why The Philadelphia Eagles Will Win The Super Bowl
One element that could place the Eagles in a position of advantage over the Chiefs is that their last two wins were decisive blowouts. In the divisional round of the NFL Playoffs, Philadelphia dispatched the New York Giants by a score of 38-7.
The Eagles were able to beat the 49ers in the NFC Conference Championship Game by a score of 31-7. Gamblers that believe this trend will continue are probably pouncing on today’s Super Bowl lines, but before betting on the Philadelphia Eagles, keep in mind the offensive firepower of the Chiefs.
The 49ers were actually able to hang with the Eagles for a couple of quarters with no real option at quarterback, even inserting Brock Purdy back into the game with no real ability to throw at all.
That said, Kansas City quarterback Patrick Mahomes is still suffering through a high ankle sprain but will now get two weeks to rest up.
Why The Kansas City Chiefs Will Win The Super Bowl
Sure, anyone paying attention to professional football over the past few years is well aware of the point-scoring capabilities possessed by Patrick Mahomes. He’s lit up opposing defenses across the entire NFL since joining the league and becoming a starter.
Another reason readers may want to consider betting on the Kansas City Chiefs to beat the Eagles is their defense, which was able to contain Joe Burrow, Ja’Marr Chase, and the rest of their offensive players not named Tee Higgins, holding them to 20 points.
We’re a bit surprised by the Eagles being favored in the initial Super Bowl odds and feel that this line will likely pull closer to even as February 13th approaches.
That said, the time to bet on the Chiefs is now, whether laying action on the point spread or their moneyline odds to win.
Betting On The Super Bowl 57 MVP
There are also early Super Bowl prop bets taking action on the MVP, and they are as follows.
Super Bowl MVP Odds
- Jalen Hurts EVEN
- Patrick Mahomes +125
- Travis Kelce +900
- A.J. Brown +1000
- Devonta Smith +2000
- Miles Sanders +2000
Quarterbacks win the Super Bowl MVP Trophy more often than not, and as such, both teams’ starters are featured in the first and second positions overall.
We can’t help but be tempted by Patrick Mahomes’ MVP odds, as they’ll deliver $125 in net gains for each $100 wagered on the prospect if he wins.
