Super Bowl 57 Preview
Super Bowl 57 represents the climax for betting on the NFL each year, as it is the season's final game and is the single most wagered-upon sporting event on the calendar. Patrick Mahomes returns for his third Super Bowl appearance with the Kansas City Chiefs and hopes to hoist his second Lombardi Trophy.
In order to do that, KC will have to beat the surging Philadelphia Eagles, who appear unbeatable with quarterback Jalen Hurts under center. The Eagles are the early favorites to win, but the lines for betting on Super Bowl LVII have been closing in on even since it was initially posted.
Keep reading for our take on how Super Bowl 57 goes down on February 12th.

Super Bowl 57 Predictions
The Kansas City Chiefs have been a part of the AFC Championship Game for the past five years in a row, and have now made it to three of the last four Super Bowls. Only one Super Bowl championship has resulted from that success thus far, but Patrick Mahomes, Travis Kelce, and Andy Reid hope to make up for lost time on February 12th.
The Philadelphia Eagles dominated throughout much of the 2022-23 NFL season schedule, with most of their troubles occurring while quarterback Jalen Hurts was out of the lineup. Hurts is back and healthy once again, and they've returned to winning decisively throughout the NFL Playoffs.
Early Super Bowl 57 betting lines favored the Eagles to win by -2.5, but that line quickly moved in the Chiefs' favor by one point within three days of taking action.
The current NFL point spread of -1.5 and the over/under total of 50.0 suggests the following final score for Super Bowl 2023:
Philadelphia Eagles 26
Kansas City Chiefs 24
Last year, we went against the trend at NFL sportsbook sites and suggested betting on the Bengals to beat the Rams in Super Bowl 56. We were wrong.
In 2023, we're going against the grain again and suggesting that the Kansas City Chiefs will not only cover the spread but they'll also win Super Bowl LVII. Our projections lead us to believe that the Kansas City Chiefs win the Superbowl by the following final score:
Kansas City Chiefs 31
Philadelphia Eagles 27
KC should jump out to an early lead and stave off the Eagles for the remainder of the game. The difference will be not the Eagles' defense but a surprise Chiefs defensive unit that has blossomed into championship form this season.
Steve Spagnuolo, the defensive coordinator for Kansas City, has two weeks to prepare for the Eagles' offense, and that span of time will also allow for Chiefs' QB Patrick Mahomes to heal up some from his ankle sprain that he suffered against Jacksonville Jaguars on January 21st.
Bet on the Chiefs to cover!
