Chiefs vs Eagles Super Bowl Prop Bets
One of the best bets available is wagering on the first-quarter spread. Let's break down the odds and give a pick for this prop heading into Chiefs-Eagles Super Bowl LVII.
1st Quarter Spread Super Bowl Prop Bet
FanDuel Sportsbook gives two options for this bet, just like a normal spread bet, but confined to the end of the first quarter. The Eagles enter Super Bowl 57 as 1.5-point favorites on the first-quarter spread, with +130 odds to cover. The Chiefs have -160 odds to cover as 1.5-point underdogs.
This is certainly a tough prop to judge heading into the big game. We'll start with the regular season records, where both teams finished with identical 14-3 records. Including the playoffs, Kansas City and Philadelphia also average similar first-quarter offensive outputs, averaging 5.4 (No. 5) and 5.8 points (No. 4) in the first frame, respectively.
During the season, the Chiefs outscored opponents 93-57 in the first quarter. Meanwhile, the Eagles had an 89-84 advantage in the first frame.
1st Quarter Spread Super Bowl Prop Bet Prediction & Pick
Philly's been phenomenal in the first quarter during the 2022-23 NFL postseason, outscoring its first two opponents 21-0 in the first quarter. On the flip side, Kansas City hasn't done nearly as well, only outscoring opponents 10-7 thus far in the opening quarter.
As good as the Chiefs can be, they're also dealing with several injuries to key offensive players. The Eagles' lineup is healthier for the most part, and the fact that they've yet to allow any first-quarter points in the playoffs can't be ignored.
Considering the trends for both teams, it's really a toss-up, but there's some plus-money that comes with backing Philadelphia. I'm siding with those +130 odds for the Eagles to be in the lead by at least a couple of points following the first quarter.
