Despite being evenly matched, not many NFL fans and media members are giving the Philadelphia Eagles much of a chance during Sunday’s Super Bowl 57 against the Kansas City Chiefs, who will make their third appearance in four seasons.
Despite the lopsided predictions, the Chiefs and Eagles entered Sunday with identical records (16-3), points scored (546), All-Pro performers (6), and a member of the Kelce clan.
Still, it looks like Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes will collect his second ring.

Staff Writers Make Super Bowl 57 Picks
KC Chiefs moneyline. The combination of Mahomes, Andy Reid, and big-game experience will be the difference. Prediction: Chiefs 24, Eagles 22.
Mahomes, despite nagging ankle soreness, shreds the Eagles’ vaunted pass rush and joins legends Bart Starr (1966), Terry Bradshaw (1978), Joe Montana (1989) and Steve Young (1994) as the only quarterbacks to claim an NFL MVP, a Super Bowl title and a Super Bowl MVP during the same season. Prediction: Chiefs 27, Eagles 20.
Getting plus-money on Mahomes seems too good to be true here. With two weeks to prepare, Reid will likely have a few new wrinkles to throw at his former team. Prediction: Chiefs 31, Eagles 24.
All eyes will be on Mahomes on Sunday. The early Super Bowl lines moved based on Mahomes’ ankle, which may have left some hidden value on the Chiefs. Late money has poured in on KC, moving the line back to +1. Predictions: Chiefs 28, Eagles 24; Travis Kelce SB MVP.
