As you will already know, we have covered this Sunday’s Super Bowl LVII clash between the Eagles and Chiefs in more detail in another article.

And furthermore, we have predicted that the Eagles will just about outlast the Chiefs in what should be a real barn-burner of a game.

But if you are yet to put your Super Bowl bets on with bet365 Sport, or another sports betting service provider, then you may well be wondering what some of the other top punters and experts are saying about the game on Sunday.

So what we have done is taken a straw poll of those experts that have predicted how the game will go to see whether it is the Eagles that are favoured more, or whether the experts feel it is time for the Chiefs to land another Super Bowl win.

What Does The Head To Head Record Between The Two Teams Tell Us?

Sometimes, looking back at how two teams have performed against each other can give you an insight into which team will win the Super Bowl, so lets take a look at the history of the games between the Chiefs and Eagles.

  • Played – 9 games
  • Philadelphia Eagles Wins – 4
  • Kansas City Chiefs Wins – 5
  • Total Eagles Points Scored – 219
  • Total Chiefs Points Scored – 218
  • Most Recent Game – October 2021 – Chiefs 42-30 Eagles

As we can see, the Chiefs have a narrow lead in the series, which they have earned by winning the last three games played between the two teams, the most recent at the back end of last season.

However, it should be noted that in this series, no team has ever won more than three games in a row against their opponent, which suggests that it could be time for an Eagles victory.

How Have They Done Against the Same Opposition This Season?

The Eagles and Chiefs have both played a small number of NFL teams this season and their results against the opponents they have faced at least once each are shown in the table below

OpponentEagles ResultChiefs Result
Jacksonville Jaguars (9-8)W 29-21 (Home)W 27-17, W 27-20 (both Home)
Arizona Cardinals (5-12)W 20-17 (Away)W 44-21 (Away)
Houston Texans (3-14)W 29-17 (Away)W 30-24 (Away)
Indianapolis Colts (5-11-1)W 17-16 (Away)L 17-20 (Away)
Tennessee Titans (8-9)W 35-10 (Home)W 20-17 OT (Home)
San Francisco 49ers (13-4)W 31-7 (Home – Playoffs)W 44-23 (Away)

As you can see, both teams have a very strong record in this category, with the Eagles winning all six of those games while the Chiefs have won six (as they played the Jaguars twice), but also lost a game to the Indianapolis Colts too.

Who Have Been the Standout Performers On Each Team?

Eagles Standouts

  • QB Jalen Hurts – 3701 yards passing, 22 touchdowns, 760 yards rushing 13 touchdowns
  • RB Miles Sanders – 1269 yards rushing, 13 touchdowns
  • WR AJ Brown – 88 receptions for 1496 yards, 11 touchdowns.
  • WR Devonta Smith – 95 receptions for 1196 yards, 7 touchdowns
  • LB Haason Reddick – 6 forced fumbles, 4 recovered, 19 sacks

Chiefs Standouts

  • QB Patrick Mahomes – 5250 yards passing, 41 touchdowns, 358 rushing yards, 4 TDs.
  • TE Travis Kelce – 110 receptions for 1138 yards and 12 touchdowns.
  • RB Jerick McKinnon – 56 receptions for 512 yards and 9 touchdowns.
  • RB Isiah Pacheco – 830 rushing yards, 5 touchdowns, 29 kicks returned for 597 yards.
  • DT Chris Jones – 29 QB Hits, 17 tackles for a loss, 15.5 sacks

What Are The Three Things The Eagles Must Do To Win?

  1. Get At Mahomes As Quickly And As Often As Possible

Against the 49ers, the Eagles pass rush was so fierce it left the 49ers without a recognised QB by the end of the game. That won’t happen here against the Chiefs, but against Patrick Mahomes, the more time he has, the more he can find targets deep. That fearsome pass rush from the Eagles needs to get at Mahomes early and keep the Kansas City star in check.

  • Use the Physical Attributes of their Two Wide Receiver Stars

Usually teams will use the rushing game to open up opportunities in the passing game, however with the Chiefs secondary a potential weakspot, and their offensive line stacking up well against the run, I can see the Eagles using the pass to eventually create space for their NFL leading rushing game to take over.

  • Let Jalen Do What He Has Been Doing

This offense has been built around Jalen Hurts having the time and skills to cause teams problems either with his passing skills, or his feet. The Eagles have had great success using this gameplan in games and it would be foolish to make specific changes now.

hilarious NFL moments

What Are The Three Things The Chiefs Must Do To Win?

  1. Protect Patrick Mahomes at all costs.

While Mahomes ankle is reportedly in ok shape, he will not be as mobile as usual, so it is up to that Eagles offensive line to offer stern protection in the face of that fearsome Eagles defense.

  • Establish The Run As A Credible Threat

Sure, the Chiefs can rely on Patrick Mahomes, but they may want additional insurance in the form of a solid running game. That is going to be a big ask for rookie Isiah Pacheco and company against an Eagles defence that is very solid at stopping the run usually.

  • Find a Way to Pressure Jalen Hurts

The Eagles offensive line is the best in the NFL, so they protect their quarterback well. The Chiefs will need a big display from their defensive line, especially Chris Jones and Frank Clark if they are to get the better of the Eagles, otherwise Hurts will have time to find those big wide receivers in that secondary.

We Predict – A close one, and a high scoring one, but the Eagles to land the win!
