Well, that didn’t take much time.

Soon after BetMGM Sportsbook, which offers great promotions, installed the Chiefs as 1.5-point favorites, the money suddenly moved to the Eagles, who went to 1.5-favorites and are currently 2.5-point favorites.

That’s a huge swing.

Bettors seemingly were wowed by Philly’s blowout win over San Francisco and less impressed by Kansas City’s tight victory over Cincinnati.

The Eagles, who won Super Bowl 52 in 2017, are appearing in their fourth Super Bowl.

The Chiefs are going to the Super Bowl for the third time in four years.

Super Bowl 57 is on Sunday, Feb. 12, 2023, in Glendale, Ariz., so that gives you a little less than two weeks to look around at all of the great gambling options available in your state including FanDuel Sportsbook and more.

Also, be sure to check out our guide to online casinos, from Pennsylvania to New Jersey. You can place all your NFL future bets there.

If the point spread somehow jumps to 3.5 – which I don’t expect it to – I’m all in on the Chiefs.

Why? They’ve got two weeks to get healthy and they’re eager to rinse away the bad memories of the past two postseasons – a loss to Tampa Bay in Super Bowl 55 (2021) and last season’s loss to the Bengals in the AFC Championship Game.

They also have Patrick Mahomes, and Josh Johnson he is not. Also, Mahomes’ counterpart, Eagles QB Jalen Hurts, might be a bit nervous playing in the biggest game of his life.

Even if the spread stays at 2.5, I’m going with Kansas City because I believe a third Super Bowl title is in the cards, even against a damn good Eagles defense that has allowed just 195 total yards per game and 14 total points in two playoffs games (7 each to the Giants and the 49ers).

I think it’s a three-point game, either way, (the referees will keep it close, wink-wink) so pick your team. I like K.C. with the points.
