The Chiefs were the Super Bowl favorites entering the playoffs. Still, the Eagles' two dominant victories in the Divisional Round and the NFC Championship game by a combined 69-14 have made Philadelphia the favorite to win it all. The Eagles are the fifth team to win the Divisional Playoffs and conference championship by 21-plus points, and all of the previous four have won the Super Bowl, per ESPN Stats & Info.

Super Bowl Top Picks

Total: Chiefs-Eagles Over 50.5 (-115) ⭐⭐⭐⭐

This is a matchup of two quarterbacks with the two highest QBRs in the league when throwing from the pocket. Eagles quarterback Jalen Hurts, in particular, has stepped up when it has mattered most, based on his QBR splits (including the playoffs). Hurts has the fifth-best QBR on third down (80), fifth-best QBR in the red zone (79), and best fourth-quarter QBR (84) in the league.

In addition, Hurts has improved tremendously as a passer within the pocket from his first two seasons to now. From 2020-21, Hurts ranked 29th in QBR, 32nd in completion percentage, and 30th in touchdown-to-interception ratio on pocket passes. This year, he ranks second in QBR and first in completion percentage and touchdown-to-interception ratio on such passes. Add in that the Chiefs were the league's highest-scoring offense, and Patrick Mahomes led the NFL with 5,250 passing yards and 41 passing touchdowns this season, and this has all the makings of a shootout.

Over backers would be wise to head to BetMGM, which is offering nearly standard juice while at a line of 50.5. Several other competitors have moved to 51.

Player Prop: Jerick McKinnon Over 20.5 receiving yards (-110) ⭐⭐⭐⭐

On screen passes this season, including the playoffs, Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes ranks first in QBR (57), completion percentage (93%), passing touchdowns (five), and second in passing yards (574) among quarterbacks with a minimum of 20 attempts. The Chiefs also rank fifth with 6.6 yards per pass on screens this year. Thus, this is a solid four-star play as we expect McKinnon to be heavily utilized in the screen game to negate the Eagles' fierce pass rush, and he should see more targets than usual, given how banged up several Chiefs wide receivers are.

bet365 charges the lowest juice to back the Over at 20.5, while other sportsbooks like FanDuel are as high as 23.5 for McKinnon's receiving yards.

Team Prop: Eagles Under 2.5 sacks vs. Chiefs (+115) ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Philadelphia's pass rush made history this year. The Eagles became just the second team since 1982 with five players to total eight or more sacks and was the first in NFL history with four players recording double-digit sacks in the regular season. They enter the Super Bowl needing five sacks to set the all-time single-season record and generate quarterback pressures on an NFL-best 32% of dropbacks. However, Mahomes threw an NFL-best 15 passing touchdowns under pressure this season. He also ranks second in QBR, first in sack percentage, and second in yards per dropbacks when under pressure (including the playoffs). 

This is our most confident five-star play, as Kansas City's offensive line had a 74.7% pass block win rate this season, the highest in the NFL in the last five seasons.

Player Prop: Jalen Hurts interceptions head-to-head vs. Patrick Mahomes (+130) ⭐⭐⭐⭐

We recognize we are getting plus-odds on this wager as Mahomes is likelier to throw the ball a lot more than Hurts. Still, Kansas City's pass rush is underrated, and we expect it to force Hurts into a mistake or two.

Kansas City's defense ranks No. 2 against the pass when applying pressure, while Philadelphia's passing offense ranks 18th when under pressure. The Chiefs allowed 4.7 yards per attempt when getting pressure (the fewest in the regular season), per Next Gen Stats. And in the playoffs, Kansas City's defense leads all teams in interceptions (three) and a 2.3 opposing passer rating when applying pressure. Meanwhile, Hurts has completed 46.1% of his passes under duress, the 12th-lowest in the regular season.
