Philadelphia Eagles Betting Analysis: Why Will They Win the Super Bowl?

The Eagles have opened as 1.5-point favorites in Super Bowl LVII. And even though the Chiefs have more players with experience in the big game, there are several good reasons why the Eagles will win. Let’s take a look at seven reasons  on why you should bet on the Eagles so you can place your bets against their Super Bowl Odds.

Seven Betting Reasons Why the Eagles Will Win the Super Bowl 57

Jalen Hurts

When Jalen Hurts has played this season, the Eagles are 16-1. Yes, the Chiefs have Patrick Mahomes, the presumptive NFL MVP. But had Hurts not missed time at the end of the season with a shoulder injury, it is quite possible that Hurts would be the MVP favorite.

Kansas City’s defense has traditionally struggled against a good running quarterback, and Hurts is one of the very best. He is a favorite to win the Super Bowl MVP for a very good reason.

Offensive Line

Kansas City had its way against the beat-up offensive line of the Bengals, sacking Joe Burrow five times in their Sunday win. Philadelphia’s offensive line is elite, and slowing down Chris Jones, Frank Clark, and George Karlaftis won’t be nearly as challenging as what they just faced in Nick Bosa. The favorite to win Defensive Player of the Year had zero sacks against the Eagles, and the Philadelphia offense rolled.

The NFL’s Best Pass Rush

On the other side of the line of scrimmage, the Eagles boast one of the best pass rushes in the league’s history. They led the NFL with 70 sacks this season and added eight more in the postseason. Patrick Mahomes has a bad ankle and may find it very challenging to avoid taking sacks against Philadelphia.

With four different players reaching double-digits in sacks, the Chiefs can’t block all of them.

A.J. Brown and DeVonta Smith

There may not be a better tandem at wide receiver than A.J. Brown and DeVonta Smith in the NFL. Kansas City’s cornerbacks have played well in the second half of the season, but they are rookies. Handling these two receivers is going to be a tall task for a defense that will struggle to generate a pass rush.

It’s also worth noting that A.J. Brown has a history against the Chiefs, and it favors Brown. Last year when he was with the Titans, he had nine catches for 133 yards in a 27-3 win over the Chiefs.

Turnover Margin

One of the most predictive measures for a winning team is turnover margin. Do you protect the ball on offense, and do you get takeaways on defense? The Eagles ranked third in the NFL in turnover margin this season at +8, while the Chiefs were 22nd at -3.

Red Zone Offense

One of the biggest reasons why the Chiefs are in the Super Bowl is because of their red zone offense, which scores touchdowns at the second-highest rate in the NFL. But that advantage is nullified by the Eagles, who score touchdowns at the third-highest rate in the NFL.

Blowouts Equal Super Bowl Wins

The Eagles are the third team in NFL history to win two playoff games by at least 24 points to get into the Super Bowl. The previous two teams to do it both won the Super Bowl.
