Patrick Mahomes and his Chiefs will be representing the American Conference in the Super Bowl for the third time in the past four seasons.
In spite of his ankle injury, Mahomes still managed to answer last Sunday’s loss to the Cincinnati Bengals the previous campaign, leading Kansas City to an AFC Conference Final of 20-23.
While the match had many controversial choices, the Chiefs’ offense proved why it is the best in the NFL after thrashing a Bengals’ defense that had been relentless since the second half of the regular round.
Remaining in the game, helped the defense do a fantastic job, particularly using its strength in making catches to its advantage, five in total against Joe Burrow. They also exploited this main weakness of Cincinnati’s offensive line.
For today’s game with Philadelphia, Kansas City’s blow will be twice as hard, as the Eagles have only allowed 14 points defensively in two games this postseason. But, none of the two quarterbacks they faced was Mahomes’ match.
Thanks to their quarterback, the Chiefs became the highest-scoring team in the championship with a total of 496 points and were the only offense to pass 7,000 total yards with 7,036. No team averaged more yards gained per play than their 6.4; the 41 touchdown passes were the highest in the NFL and with a 69.4% conversion percentage, they finished second inside the red zone.
On defense, Kansas finished as the team that conceded the most aerial TDs in the league and tried fixing this problem by curbing the opposing ground game. But, they will still have a great advantage against the Eagles who scored the most touchdowns on the ground this year.
Betting On The Philadelphia Eagles

- 1XBet Spread: -1.5
- 1XBet Moneyline: 1.85

The Philadelphia Eagles did not disappoint as National Conference favourites after staying on top from beginning to end in the regular round. They not only defeated the New York Giants in the Divisional Round, but they also exploited Brock Purdy’s early injury to mete out a 7-31 judgement on the dangerous San Francisco 49ers.
The offense which is headed by Jalen Hurts didn’t show fear in front of the best defense in the league and with just 269 total yards. They scored 31 touchdowns against a unit that conceded only over 30 points twice this campaign.
This record should not come as surprise, especially since Philadelphia was the second-highest-scoring franchise in the circuit, second to Kansas City. One of their strengths was that they barely dropped the ball on 18 occasions, while their 32 TDs on the ground were the most in the championship, and they finished as the third-best team in the red zone.
Hurts is to the Eagles, what Mahomes is to the Chiefs. The star quarterback threw for more than 3,700 yards and rushed for more than 700 even after missing two regular-round matches.
On the defensive side, Philadelphia is one of the NFL’s heavy hitters, which is what makes them dangerous. An instance of this is that the Eagles were two sacks away from the NFL all-time record with 70, and during playoffs they added 8 more between the Giants and the 49ers.
Adding this to Mahomes’ physical discomforts being public and the fact that the Eagles were the team that allowed the lowest total yards through the air in the championship, it is understandable why they are slight favourites in betting polls to win the Super Bowl title.
The Philadelphia Eagles having a slight edge in the betting odds shows just how close today’s game will be between the two best offenses and quarterbacks in the NFL.
Thanks to the Chiefs’ strong aerial attack, they are the number one offense in the circuit. While the Eagles are number two because they finished ninth in the air and fifth on the ground.
This is why there is no disbelief about the difference the defenses of both teams will make. In defense, Kansas City may lack Philadelphia’s power, but they held Joe Burrow and the Bengals to just 20 points.
The Eagles, on the other hand, have had no opponent score over seven points against them in the playoffs. Furthermore, they are one of the best in the circuits through the air. Additionally, knowing how to pressure the opposing quarterback isn’t like Philadelphia and Mahomes isn’t at full capacity to make one of his magical breakaways.
Final Prediction: Under (KC 23- PHI 26)
