The Super Bowl is almost two weeks away and we’re already seeing the odds change for Philadelphia Eagles taking on the Kansas City Chiefs in this year’s game.
Based on the early adjustment, the money is coming in on Philly.
After the Eagles opened up as 1.5-point favorites over the Chiefs on Sunday, that line has already moved to Eagles -2. The big reason for that movement is that over 60% of the money and total bets are being placed on Philadelphia.
The moneyline for the Super Bowl has also moved. The Chiefs initially had -105 to -115 odds, depending on where you looked, to win the game outright. Now those odds have moved to +105 to +115. That means if you bet $10 on the Chiefs to win the Super Bowl yesterday your profit would be under $10 and if you did it today it would be over $10; if the Chiefs win of course.
The Eagles have dominated in the playoffs thus far, so this makes sense. They beat the New York Giants and San Francisco 49ers by a combined score of 69-14 behind offensive and defensive lines that manhandled the competition.
The Chiefs, meanwhile, have eked out two wins in the playoffs and quarterback Patrick Mahomes is dealing with a sprained ankle. Their offensive weapons are limited behind Travis Kelce and Mahomes and their defense isn’t quite as dangerous as their counterparts.
We’ll see if the line continues to move toward the Eagles as more money pours into this game or whether the Chiefs find some backers as the week progresses. But the early action is on Philly and I don’t see that changing.
