The Philadelphia Eagles will be returning to the Super Bowl for the second time in six years.
Good news for Eagles fans, they’re set as the betting favorite to take down the Kansas City Chiefs in the big game.
Let’s take a peak at the latest odds.
Eagles Super Bowl 57 Favorites
If we forget about the point spread and just focus on the Eagles moneyline odds, which is just their odds to win the game, the Eagles are set as -126 favorites.
That translate to an implied odds of a 55.75% chance to win the game and hoist the Vince Lombardi Trophy.
If they do win the game, it will be thanks to their defense. Shutting down the likely NFL MVP in Patrick Mahomes will be no easy task, but the Philadelphia defense is up for the challenge.
The Eagles defense ranks first in opponent yards per pass attempt this season, giving up only 5.4 yards per throw. They also rank first in QB sacks per game, averaging 4.1 per contest. That sounds like a recipe for shutting down the best quarterback in football.
The Eagles offense needs to take advantage of the biggest weakness on the Chiefs defense, which is their inability to hold teams to field goals. Kansas City boasts the third worst red zone defense in the NFL, allowing teams to score a touchdown on 65.57% of red zone trips against them.
If the Eagles can slow down Mahomes and score touchdowns on offense, instead of being held to field goals, they have a great chance to win this game.
Make no mistake about it, they’re the rightful favorites in this game.
