Betting on the Kansas City Chiefs (+2.0)
Regular Season Record: 14-3
The Chiefs have booked their seat in Super Bowl 57 following a thrilling 23-20 win in the AFC Divisional Round against Joe Burrow and the Cincinnati Bengals. Kansas City was pretty banged up in that game, with injuries suffered on their offense and defense. JuJu Smith-Schuster, Kadarius Toney, Mecole Hardman, and L’Jarius Sneed all got hurt in the Bengals game, but the long rest heading into Super Bowl 57 should have them all, if not most, ready for the big game in Glendale. Patrick Mahomes also seemed to tweak his ankle, but managed to finish the game. He should be fine. The Chiefs’ strength is always going to be their offense which led the NFL in the regular season with 28.7 points per game. In the conference championship game, Mahomes still recorded 326 passing yards and two touchdowns against zero interceptions on 29/43 completions despite a depleted receiving corps. Kansas City’s defense is not considered to be on the level of Philly’s stop unit, but the Chiefs just had five sacks and two interceptions in the AFC Championship Round against a very good Cincy offense.
Kansas City is 3-2 against the spread in its last five games overall.
Betting on the Philadelphia Eagles (-2.0)
Regular Season Record: 14-3
Jalen Hurts and the Eagles have been blowing teams out of the water in the postseason. After destroying the New York Giants in the NFC Divisional Round to the tune of a 38-7 win, the Eagles demolished the San Francisco 49ers, 31-7 last Sunday in the AFC title game. Granted that the Niners played without Brock Purdy for the most part of the AFC Championship Game, the Eagles had shown enough on defense to put deflect any doubts about what it is capable of against elite offensive teams. The Eagles finished the regular season fourth in the NFL in scoring defense with just 18.8 points allowed per game and third with 1.0 takeaway per contest. The Eagles allowed just 164 total yards to San Francisco and limited the Niners to only 2/8 on third downs and 0/2 on fourth downs. Offensively, the Eagles are even better, having ranked No. 1 in the regular season with 28.7 points per game and scoring 69 points through two contests in the NFL playoffs thus far.
The Eagles are 5-5 against the spread in their last 10 games overall.
The Eagles win, 27-24.
