SHOWTIME

Chiefs (+1.5) vs. Eagles

PointsBet Data and Insights

KICKOFF: 6:30 p.m. ET

KEY FACTS: Both teams enter as No. 1 seeds with 16-3 records. The Chiefs led the NFL in scoring (29.2 PPG) but have been ravaged at WR. Philly’s defense allowed the league’s fewest passing yards and have a sack total not seen since the ’85 Bears. The Eagles soared into the Super Bowl against lighter competition. The Chiefs survived a coin-flip game against the Bengals.

TRENDING: The Under ↘️ is 4-0 in KC/Philly playoff games. The Chiefs are 3-8-1 ATS in their last 12.

INSIGHT: The line flipped four points in the time it takes to say cheesesteak . Money poured in on Philly, which stabilized as a 1.5-point fave. A good sign for Eagles backers: The line has moved 1.5+ points from open to close in 18 previous Super Bowls. The team the line has steamed toward is 14-4 ATS.

EXPERT PICKS

NBC lead betting analyst Jay Croucher joins the PointsBet duo of Ryan Leaf and Ariel Epstein for the ultimate picking contest.

THE QUARTERBACK

Eagles -1.5 (-110)
“Mahomes balances the scales but not quite enough. The Eagles will rush their way to the title.”
Over 51 (-110)
“For the Eagles to win, they have to score. Final: 34-31.”

THE PROP QUEEN

Eagles First Downs under 22.5 (-140)
“The Eagles averaged fewer than 19 in the final three games of the regular season. KC limited the Bengals to 18.”
Jerick McKinnon over 20.5 Receiving Yards (-112)
“The Eagles have the second-highest QB pressure rate, and the Chiefs cannot afford to get Mahomes hurt. Dump the ball off the RB who was targeted four times against the Bengals.”

THE BRAIN

Chiefs moneyline (+100)
“I’m expecting Mahomes to look close to 100%, and the gap between him and Hurts is too big for the Eagles to be favored.”
Under 51 (-110)
“The Eagles may not look as explosive if they are forced to play from behind for one of the rare times this season.”

GIVIN' YOU A BOOST

SUGAR ON TOP

PointsBet Creative

PointsBet is the home of the Same Game Parlay (SGP) boost. Clients receive a daily token to use on combos like this:

  • Eagles -1.5 (-110)
  • Jalen Hurts Anytime TD (-120)
  • Dallas Goedert Over 4.5 Receptions (-135)
  • Boston Scott Over 5.5 Rushing Yards (-136)

A $20 bet pays … $174! Odds are +700, boosted to +772. 

Rationale: Hurts has already scored in both playoff games, and good things come in threes. Nobody’s confusing Goedert for Travis Kelce, but he sees steady volume and has 5+ catches in three straight. And Scott needs just six yards!

  • Chiefs Moneyline (+100)
  • Over 51 (-110)
  • Patrick Mahomes Under 20.5 Rushing Yards (-115)
  • Travis Kelce First TD (+650)

A $20 bet pays … $643.80! Odds are +2800, boosted to +3119.

Rationale: You like the Chiefs and love their offense. But you’re wary of Mahomes’ ankle. And you’re sure that Kelce will have lifetime bragging rights over his bro.

HOW THEY GOT HERE

RISE TO PHOENIX

ON OUR WHISTLE

STARS ‘N STRIPES

Four Officiating Props ✏️ we’re flagging:

  • Accepted Penalties Committed by Chiefs – Over 4.5 (-140): Over the last two seasons, Carl Cheffers’ officiating crew has penalized KC second-most among all teams.
  • Accepted Penalties Committed by Eagles – Under 5.5 (-130): The Eagles were one of the most disciplined teams in the NFL this year (5.2 penalties per game), plus they have the benefit of not being the Chiefs.
  • First Team to Use Coach’s Challenge – Chiefs (-120): Andy Reid tossed the red flag three times in the playoffs, matching Nick Sirianni for the entire season.
  • First Accepted Penalty – Holding (+225): Delay of game (+1200) pays the best, but we figure the Chiefs’ O-line will err in protecting the franchise’s $450M investment.

 

4 SIMPLE CHOICES

MAKE THE CASE‍⚖️

PointsBet Data and Insights

Four options for Super Bowl LVII:

  • Eagles -1.5: Philly is 16-1 this season when Jalen Hurts played. He’s playing.
  • Chiefs +1.5: KC is in its 14th playoff game since 2018. Experience matters.
  • Over 51: Both offenses rank in the top six in yards per play.
  • Under 51: The Eagles run on more than 50% of snaps, and Chiefs WRs are banged up.
