I’m sure you’re already crafting your betting card for the greatest sports gambling event of the year, but before you click submit on all your wagers, check out the spread and total for the big game and see which prop bets I’m putting my money on for Super Bowl 57.
2023 Super Bowl odds: point spread and total for Eagles vs. Chiefs
Spread: Eagles -1.5
Moneyline: Eagles -122, Chiefs +104
Betting odds courtesy of FanDuel as of 2/7.
After the conference championships wrapped up, most sportsbooks opened Super Bowl 57 as a pick-em. That turned out to be a mistake, as bettors immediately pounced on the Eagles and pushed the spread up to Philadelphia -2.5.
The Chiefs have since taken some counter money to move the line back to Eagles -1.5, and that’s where it’ll likely close on Sunday.
As for the total, the opener of 49 got bet up to 50.5 over the past week. If you simply want to pick the winner of the game, the Eagles are -122 on the moneyline ($122 bet wins $100), and the Chiefs are +104 ($100 bet wins $104).
Super Bowl 57 best bets
Philadelphia Eagles first half -1.5 +120 (FanDuel)
The Eagles have been the best first-half team in the NFL all season long. Philadelphia averages 18.2 points in the first half alone, which is higher than the full-game average of seven teams. In addition, the Eagles are 14-5 against the spread on the first-half line this season.
A.J. Brown over 71.5 receiving yards -120 (DraftKings)
Bettors might be hesitant to put their hard-earned money on A.J. Brown in the Super Bowl considering his lack of production in the postseason thus far. The star wideout recorded just seven catches for 50 total yards in Philadelphia’s first two playoff games, but I’m expecting a different result in the Super Bowl.
For one, the Eagles barely had to throw the ball in their first two playoff games. We won’t see the same game script against the Chiefs in what should be a close, high-scoring game. Brown also went off for eight catches, 133 yards, and a touchdown against the Chiefs last season. The way to beat this Kansas City defense is over the top, so I expect Brown to have a big game on Sunday.
Miles Sanders yards on first reception over 2.5 -110 (DraftKings)
This is a weird one, but hear me out. Miles Sanders averages 7.6 yards per reception in his career. He’s averaging a career-low 3.9 yards per catch this season, but that’s still higher than his prop of 2.5. It’s possible Sanders doesn’t catch a single pass in the Super Bowl, but if he does, it’ll most likely be on a check-down when Jalen Hurts sees him wide open in the flat.
Travis Kelce 2+ touchdowns +500 (FanDuel)
If the Chiefs are going to put up a big number against this Eagles defense, it’s going to be courtesy of Travis Kelce. The tight end has been unstoppable in the playoffs with 21 catches for 176 yards and three touchdowns over the first two games. Also, the strength of Philadelphia’s defense is its defensive line and outside cornerbacks. This team can be beat in the middle of the field, which is where Kelce does most of his damage.
Good luck with all your action on Sunday Bowl Sunday!
