The possibilities are almost endless on what you can bet on during Super Bowl 57 between the Kansas City Chiefs and Philadelphia Eagles. Anything ranging from traditional player props to whether or not the opening kickoff will be a touchback can all be found on FanDuel Sportsbook.

Update (10:33 p.m. ET): There were nine total touchdowns scored in Super Bowl 57. The Chiefs ultimately pulled out the 38-35 win in this high-scoring shootout.

Chiefs vs Eagles Super Bowl Prop Bets

One of the most fun bets available is wagering on the number of total touchdowns that will be scored in the game. Let's break down the odds and give a pick for this prop heading into Chiefs-Eagles Super Bowl LVII.

FanDuel Sportsbook has set the over/under for total touchdowns scored at 6. That means the under would be the winning side if there are fewer than 6 total touchdowns in the game. The under is available at -124 while the over has odds set at +102.

Total Touchdowns Super Bowl Prop Bet History

Super Bowl history shows that this prop bet can be hit or miss. More than 6 touchdowns has only happened in four of the last 10 Super Bowls. There have been exactly 6 touchdowns in one of the games, meaning the under cashes in about half of the time.

The last time a Super Bowl recorded more than 6 touchdowns was the last time the Philadelphia Eagles made a Super Bowl appearance. In 2018, the Eagles and New England Patriots combined for 9 total touchdowns as Philadelphia went on to win in thrilling fashion by a score of 41-33.

Total Touchdowns Super Bowl Prop Bet Prediction & Pick

It's important to note that these are two of the best offenses in football. The Chiefs and Eagles rank first and third, respectively, in points per game at 29.2 and 28.1 Philadelphia is better defensively, however, giving up just 20.2 points per game compared to Kansas City's 21.7.

Between the recent history and relatively average nature of KC's defense, this prop bet is a true coin flip. I love the plus odds on the over with a chance to make real money on this prop. Expect a lot of scoring in Super Bowl 57 as these two offenses slug it out.
