NFL Super Bowl LVII Eagles vs. Chiefs Predictions
Kansas City Chiefs vs Philadelphia Eagles Super Bowl Prediction
After opening at $1.90, the Eagles have been the best-backed team to win the Super Bowl and we’re not surprised given the injury concerns of Mahomes.
The Chiefs’ star is the best quarterback by some margin, but he was limping throughout their Conference Championships win over the Bengals and that’s something punters should be worried about.
He’s still good enough to lead the Chiefs to victory on one leg, but the Eagles defence is better than most and he could have a hard time finding open receivers, which means he needs to leave the pocket and use his legs. That option won’t be readily available to him, so that’s why the weight of money has come for the Eagles.
Philadelphia has been great this season, and despite losing consecutive games to the Cowboys and Saints, it rebounded with must-win victories over the Giants and 49ers. The Eagles got a little fortunate against the 49ers when quarterback Brock Purdy was injured early, but they still played well to secure the 31-7 win.
It was a much closer affair for the Chiefs, who held off the Bengals 23-20, but we thought the Bengals were the best team in the NFL, so the win ranks highly.
We expect an even amount of betting action for Super Bowl LVII. The Chiefs at $2.02 is an attractive bet, but we’re going with the Eagles to be slightly too good. They have allowed just 14 points during the playoffs, so the Chiefs offence, which is missing some key players this year, would need to be on another level.
Betting tip: Philadelphia Eagles @ $1.80

Super Bowl LVII Eagles vs. Chiefs Exotic Tips
There is plenty of money to be made with Super Bowl exotics and we’re starting with first touchdown scorer.
We think the Eagles will come out humming and score first. Hurts is the current $9.50 favourite on the Eagles, but we think he will pass to Dallas Goedert for the opening six-pointer.
Goedert often goes under the radar on a team with Hurts, A.J. Brown, and Miles Sanders, so he could get open on a pick play in the end zone and score. Goedert pays $13 with bookmakers, which is a terrific price.
If you think the Chiefs score first, look no further than Travis Kelce. In the absence of top receivers, the tight-end has stood up and provided Mahomes with a big target to hit. He should get open and give punters a good sight.
Kelce is an $8 chance to score first and a $1.90 chance to score at any time during the Super Bowl, which is worth including in NFL same game multis.
We also like Hurts to score at any time. He should use his legs to stroll into the end zone at some point of the game, so the $2.15 available is a fair price in Super Bowl betting markets.
For a little more value on the Eagles, they pay $2.55 to win between 1-13 points. We don’t think they’ll win by more than two touchdowns, so although there is some added risk in this bet, the $2.55 is a fair price considering they are $1.80 to win outright.
We are also entertaining the halftime-fulltime line for the Eagles at $2.55. It’s always a risky bet but we think the Eagles will come out humming and score an early touchdown, which could set them up for the lead throughout the game.
