The Philadelphia Eagles are 5-2-2 against the spread, including 3-1-1 on the road. They’ve failed to cover the spread in four of their previous five meetings with Kansas City. The Chiefs, meanwhile, are 6-3 ATS, including 4-1 at home. The total has gone Under in Kansas City’s last five games and seven of nine overall. That’s the second-lowest rate (22.2%) in the NFL. That’s important to remember when assessing the Eagles vs Chiefs odds.
Eagles Flying High with Hurts
The Philadelphia Eagles currently own the NFL’s best record, coming off their bye at 8-1. Accordingly, the Eagles are +225 co-favorites to win the NFC (San Francisco 49ers) and have seen their Super Bowl LVIII odds climb from +800 to +550.
Picking up where he left off last season, Jalen Hurts has been a true difference-maker at quarterback. Hurts is completing a career-high 68.9% of his attempts for 2,347 yards and 15 touchdowns compared to eight interceptions. He’s also rushed for seven scores. As such, Hurts is now the +350 favorite for NFL MVP, along with Kansas City’s Patrick Mahomes and Baltimore’s Lamar Jackson.
Hurts’ favorite target, A.J. Brown, is priced as high as +8000 for MVP on some sportsbooks. He’s among the NFL stat leaders with 67 catches for 1,005 yards.
Philadelphia has been proficient offensively, ranking fifth in the NFL in average yards (376.8) and tied for third in average points (28.0). Keep that in mind when analyzing the Eagles vs Chiefs odds.
Still One of the Best
There’s no concern of a Super Bowl hangover for the Kansas City Chiefs, who have maintained their place as a championship contender. The Chiefs come off their Week 10 bye at 7-2, owning the best win percentage (.778) in the AFC.
As such, the Chiefs are a +225 favorite to defend their AFC title and +500 to win it all, one of only five teams with better than 10/1 odds. They’re trying to become the first back-to-back Super Bowl champion since the New England Patriots in 2004 and 2005.
Mahomes is again among the NFL passing leaders with 2,442 yards and 17 touchdowns compared to eight interceptions. As such, Mahomes is a legitimate threat to become the first NFL player to win his second straight MVP award and third overall.
Tight end Travis Kelce leads Kansas City with 57 catches for 597 yards and four touchdowns. The Chiefs are currently the fifth-ranked passing offense (264.9 yards per game) and rank eighth in average yards (368.7). So long as they keep Mahomes upright, the Chiefs shouldn’t have issues sustaining that productivity.
Handicapping the Game
There isn’t much separating these teams. They very well may be the best in their respective conferences. Nobody should be surprised if they meet again in the Super Bowl.
The Chiefs are a 2.5-point home favorite, meaning oddsmakers essentially see them on equal footing. With both sides healthy and well-rested coming off the bye, we’ll give a slight edge to the home team. This is shaping up to be a one-score game.
