Super Bowl LVII Preview

It’ll be amazing. A spectacle. People will talk about it for years, and perhaps, decades to come. Families will gather around their televisions, with fathers and sons captivated by the performance, and mothers observing with understandable reservations. Not to exaggerate, but it’s the moment the world has been waiting for. Of course, I’m talking about Rihanna’s Super Bowl half-time show this Sunday at the University of Phoenix Stadium. But, I’m pretty certain the Super Bowl itself between the Eagles and Chiefs will be just as enticing.

Super Bowl LVII - Wikipedia   Philadelphia Eagles (16-3) vs. Kansas City Chiefs (16-3)  

The old cliché of “these are the two best teams” in a final have never been truer than this season’s Super Bowl. NFC Champions, the Eagles, were having their best season in Franchise history prior to QB Jalen Hurts getting injured after Week 14. They had won 13 games and lost just once with him as a starter, and 2 of their 3 losses this season came with him on the sidelines. The Eagles boast a league high 94% win rate when he’s available and he’ll be one to keep an eye on on Sunday. Second year Head Coach, Nick Sirianni, has led them to a second playoff appearance and will be aiming to repeat their 2018 feat where they were crowned Super Bowl champions for the first time.

AFC Champions, the Chiefs, are no strangers to winning. Head Coach, Andy Reid, has not had a losing season since he got the job in 2013 and has an overall 128-52 record in that stretch. They’ve been to the AFC Championship game for 5-years in a row – a feat only surpassed by the legendary and recently retired Tom Brady and the New England Patriots (7). Alongside his talented QB Patrick Mahomes – who defied all odds by overcoming a high ankle sprain that severely affected his mobility 2 weeks ago – he will be leading the Chiefs to a 3rd Super Bowl appearance in just 4 years.

In one of many intriguing storylines, Andy Reid will be facing an Eagles’ team that gave him his first shot as a Head Coach in 1999 and with whom he coached till 2012. He knows what it feels like to lose a Super Bowl with the Eagles, having done so to the Patriots in 2004. This time around, he’ll be hoping to be the one to inflict a painful loss on the City of Philadelphia.

Chiefs-Eagles: Super Bowl LVII predictions, picks, odds, questions

When Jalen Hurts and Patrick Mahomes meet on Sunday, they’ll make history by being the first set of black quarterbacks to face off at the Super Bowl and, to be entirely honest, this game is too close to call for many reasons. The Eagles are slight favorites to win @1.77 while The Chiefs are valued @2.10. Luckily for us, there are lots of other options on BetKing which we can take advantage of.  Let’s take a look at them.

Chiefs To Score Over 23.5 Points @1.84

The Kansas City Chiefs have only scored less than 23 points four times this season, including playoffs. Three of these instances occurred during the first eight games as the team adapted to playing without wide receiver Tyreek Hill. However, after these initial struggles, the offense picked up steam and led the league in Points Per Game (29.2) in the regular season. The most recent game, a 23-20 victory over the Cincinnati Bengals in the AFC Championship, marked the fourth time they scored below 23 points and was likely due to QB Patrick Mahomes’ limited mobility caused by an injury. Despite this, the Chiefs have maintained a strong playoff average of 25.0 PPG, ranked 5th among all teams. With Mahomes now in better health, they are poised to surpass the 23-point mark once again.

Eagles To Score Over 25.5 Points @1.85

In the playoffs, the Eagles lead the league in Points Per Game with 34.5 averaged in 2 games. These two games have been against the Giants – a team renowned for controlling the clock – and a San Francisco 49ers team that boasts the league’s best defense. While the Chiefs defense has the outstanding Defensive Tackle in Chris Jones – who leads them on that side of the ball – limiting this Eagles’ offense to under 25.5 points is a mammoth task and @1.85, this is perhaps the best value for money by BetKing.

Super Bowl LVII - Wikipedia    Super Bowl MVP Picks

If the Eagles end up winning the game on Sunday, QB Jalen Hurts would most likely be the reason, and he would be named the MVP. In addition to him winning 16 of 17 games he’s played this season, the 24-year-old threw for 3,701 yards and 22 Touchdowns, but his 13 Rushing Touchdowns – the second in the league – were perhaps the most impressive. @2.20, he’s a great value for Super Bowl MVP.

Patrick Mahomes (also valued @2.20) is a great pick for the Super Bowl MVP as well.  He’s currently the heavy favorite to be crowned the 2022 Regular Season MVP at the NFL Honors on the 10th of February and wining the Super Bowl MVP isn’t far-fetched. Mahomes led the league in Passing Yards (5,250) and Passing Touchdowns (41) as he led the Chiefs to the #1 seed in the AFC.

Super Bowl 2023: Kansas City Chiefs vs. Philadelphia Eagles - Variety

Valued @12.0 Chiefs’ Travis Kelce, could be a steal as the MVP on Sunday. It is not unheard of for Pass Catchers to be named Super Bowl MVPs. Just last year, Rams’ WR Cooper Kupp won the award and 3 years before that, New England’s Julian Edelman picked up the award ahead of Tom Brady. Travis Kelce has had a monster season in the new-look Kansas City offense, notching career-highs with 110 Catches (3rd in the NFL), 12 Touchdowns (2nd) and 1,338 Receiving Yards (8th) – a phenomenal feat for a Tight End. Travis will be lining up against his elder brother, Jason, on the other side of the field as they become the first brothers to face each other in the Super Bowl, and he’ll want to have bragging rights over the Eagles Center.

Team to have the Longest Successful Field Goal

This betting prop for Sunday’s game may not be glamorous, but it holds potential for high rewards. Harrison Butker of the Chiefs is favored with odds of 1.86 to make the longest field goal of the game, while Jake Elliot of the Eagles has lower odds of 1.96. Despite having lower odds, Elliot is the more accurate kicker with an 87% Field Goal percentage, which ranks 16th in the league. On the other hand, Butker’s Field Goal percentage of 75% ties him at 35th in the league. So, why is the less accurate kicker valued higher? It’s simple, he has a stronger leg and is more clutch. Although Butker’s accuracy may be lower, he holds the longest Field Goal of the season – a 62 yarder against the Buffalo Bills in Week 2. In comparison, Elliot’s longest Field Goal this season of 56 yards is just the 16th longest. Additionally, Butker has made two 50+ yard field goals in the playoffs and has a perfect 100% accuracy in the postseason – a 25% bump from the Regular Season. At odds of 1.86, we recommend backing Harrison Butker.

Super Bowl LVII - Wikipedia    Team to Record Most Sacks

Super Bowl First Touchdown Scorer Odds & Stats

The Philadelphia Eagles (@1.76) are the clear favorites to have more sacks on Sunday, and we advise sticking to them. They led the league in sacks during the Regular Season (70 sacks) and while the Kansas Chiefs were 2nd on that list, their 55 sacks pales in comparison to the Eagles’ 70. In the NFC Championship game against the San Francisco 49ers, they smelled blood knowing the 49ers were down to their 3rd and 4th string Quarterbacks and gameplaned around rushing the QBs. This yielded great result as they got themselves 3 sacks and limited the 49ers to a measly 83 Passing Yards. Though they’re facing a superior QB in Patrick Mahomes, the Eagles Defense are well aware he’s far from being a 100% healthy and willl adopt a similar tactic that involves getting to him early.
