Super Bowl 57 Picks: Chiefs Eagles Betting

Eagles bettors might not get a better price than -1.5 in Super Bowl 57 as there are rumored heavy bets coming closer to kickoff on the Eagles. That would mean Philly backers should move quickly while Kansas City bettors could wait for a better dog line closer to kickoff.

Super Bowl 57 picks range from the aforementioned point spread and total (up to 51 now) to the thousands of fun props and parlay options. Coin toss trends, like the fact the Super Bowl winner has lost the coin toss eight straight times, are also fun and potentially profitable.

As for the game itself, the health of star QBs Jalen Hurts (shoulder) and Patrick Mahomes (ankle) remain big question marks. Ditto the status of KC’s battered wide receiver room, where Mecole Hardman appears out, while Kadarius Toney and JuJu Smith-Schuster have been practising this week for the Chiefs.

Why the Chiefs can cover the Super Bowl 57 spread

Mahomes will win the MVP and remains the league’s best player even on a shaky ankle. But his receiving corps is also banged up, ditto All-World TE Travis Kelce (who was OVER 79.5 receiving yards at Draft Kings Sportsbook.

Frank Clark and Chris Jones lead an aggressive Chiefs defense which should aim to limit the Eagles ground game early and challenge Hurts to win the game with his arm. If either players secures a sack, its easy money and a nice payout at Draft Kings as well.

Kansas City has dominated the NFC, winning 10 straight and 17 of 18 games going back three seasons. And the Chiefs are 12-4-1 ATS in 17 games as an underdog.

Why the Eagles can cover the Super Bowl 57 spread

The Eagles defense has been terrific but still gets some questions about heir strength of schedule in 2022. The DL and secondary are aggressive and fast and deep. Their goal will be to rattle the unflappable Mahomes or at least force quick releases. If you see Mahomes getting flushed from the pocket to scramble a few times, his rushing yard total is just 18.5 yards.

Meanwhile the offensive line is also terrific and should be able to open lanes for the Eagles terrific run game. Outside, A.J. Brown and DeVonta Smith are lethal weapons. Its possible the Eagles can get out in front and extend the lead to easily cover the points here. Since 1994, the Chiefs have failed to cover all five times as a playoff underdog.

Super Bowl 57 Picks

Many believe this line should already be -3 Philly, so getting them at -1.5 appears to be a bargain. The strategy in Philly should be to grind the ball on the ground and keep Mahomes off the field, then harass the shit out of him when he’s on the field. The fact all his receivers have lingering injuries is not great news for the Chiefs if they need to rally. We like the Eagles to win easily here and 1.5 points is a gift.
