2023 Super Bowl Betting Preview

For the first time in 57 years, the Super Bowl will have two brothers playing against each other.

One of the brothers:

  • Has been to six Pro Bowls,
  • Has started 147 consecutive games over 9-years
  • Won a Super Bowl.

The other brother:

  • Ranks 4th all-time in receiving yards amongst tight ends
  • Is being mentioned with names like Gonzalez, Witten, Gates, and Sharpe as one of the greatest ever at his position.
  • Won a Super Bowl.

If you are interested in making a wager on one of the brothers to win the Big Game, Team Jason Kelce and his Eagles are currently a -1.5 point favorite over Team Travis Kelce and his Chiefs.

Travis has a receiving yards prop total of 78.5 yards. Will the Chiefs TE going Over or Under his prop total be correlated with which team wins the Big Game?

Super Bowl LVII will kick off on February 12, 2023, at State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona.

The Philadelphia Eagles will be looking to win their second-ever Vince Lombardi trophy, but the Kansas City Chiefs are the best of the AFC and will stand in their way.

State Farm Stadium

For months NFL fans have known that pop music superstar Rihanna and her 9 Grammy Awards will headline this year’s Super Bowl LVII halftime show.

Recently we learned that country music sensation Chris Stapleton, winner of 10 Grammy Awards, would be singing the National Anthem.

The only thing we didn’t know heading into NFL Conference Championship weekend was who the AFC and NFC representatives in this year’s big game would actually be.

Sunday, those two remaining questions were answered in very dramatic fashion.

Super Bowl LVII will kick off on February 12, 2023, at State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona.

The Philadelphia Eagles will be looking to win their second-ever Vince Lombardi trophy, but the Kansas City Chiefs are the best in the AFC and will stand in their way.

NFC Representative

Philadelphia Eagles (-130 Super Bowl LVII Moneyline)

Before the Eagles hosted the visiting San Francisco 49ers, many bettors wondered how 49ers rookie QB Brock Purdy would perform in a very difficult and very hostile environment.

Those who were wondering will have to wait, as Purdy injured his throwing elbow early and was forced to leave the game.

The Eagles cruised to victory for the second consecutive playoff game against a San Francisco team with Josh Johnson at QB.

With the game tied 7-7 and just over 8 minutes remaining in the second quarter, savvy bettors could live bet the Eagles -5.5 points.

Some of us were quicker than others realizing the Eagles were going to have their way defensively with Josh Johnson at QB.

At the start of the season, Philadelphia opened the year at +4000 to win the Super Bowl.

However, Philly quickly became a trendy offseason pick and their amazing start to the season meant their odds dropped quickly.

The Eagles won their first eight games and 13 of their first 14.

At that point, the secret was out, and bettors who jumped on Philly at +4000 knew they had reason to be excited.

Philadelphia easily covered both point spreads in their two playoff games this year.

Despite finishing the regular season 14-3, they were only 8-9 ATS.

AFC Representative

Kansas City Chiefs (+110 Super Bowl LVII Moneyline)

For those who are into watching point spreads throughout the week, the Bengals vs Chiefs spread went on a well-documented roller coaster of a ride leading up to the AFC Championship.

After KC opened as a -3 point favorite, speculation around the health and well-being of Patrick Mahomes caused the spread to move all the way to Cincinnati -2.5 in just over two days of betting.

That is a +5.5 move based on pure speculation.

The line eventually settled at Chiefs -1.5, and the game itself more than lived up to the overwhelming expectations that this game would be close until the very end.

For Kansas City, they opened the season at +700 to win the Super Bowl, trailing the Buffalo Bills as the favorites in the AFC. After losing to Buffalo in October, you could find the Chiefs at +800 during the season.

Over their last 13 games played, including the playoffs, Kansas City has just one loss. It was a December matchup in Cincinnati.

However, over those same 13 games where they are 12-1 straight up, the Chiefs are only 5-8 against the spread. (ATS)

That stat may be less relevant against the Eagles. Kansas City is rarely the betting underdog, but they are getting +2 points for this game.

Patrick Mahomes had less than a week to rehabilitate and figure out how to play on what is assumed to be a significantly injured ankle.

The Chiefs QB had a Total Passing Yards prop of 277.5 yards against the Bengals. Mahomes was 29 of 43 for 326 yards, going well OVER his total.

In the Super Bowl, with even more time to rest and recover, Mahomes’ Passing Yards Prop total is 287.5.

Does the extra week of recovery for Mahomes automatically mean that he will be even better against Philadelphia than he was against the Bengals?

How much better are the Eagles defensively than Cincinnati was?

Philadelphia gave up less than 200 yards passing per game for the season this year. How does that stat impact Patrick’s passing yards prop total?

NFL Super Bowl Bettors have a lot to think about between now and when Chris Stapleton gets us all fired up with his rendition of the Star-Spangled Banner.
