Chiefs’ Road to Super Bowl 57
KC was once again led by NFL MVP odds favorite Patrick Mahomes, locking up a 14-3 record and a first-round bye.
The Chiefs endured two nail-biter wins this postseason: a 27-20 back-and-forth with the Jaguars in the Divisional Round, and win Sunday over Cincinnati during their fifth straight year as AFC Championship Game hosts.
Battling a high-ankle sprain, Mahomes gutted to a noteworthy 326-yard, two-touchdown performance against Joe Burrow‘s Bengals.
Mahomes will look to lead Reid past his former squad on the biggest stage.

Eagles’ Road to Super Bowl 57
The Eagles were among the favorites in Super Bowl odds for most of the campaign, ending the regular season atop the conference with a first-round bye resulting from a 14-3 record.
After its one-week breather in the postseason, Philly steamrolled the Giants and 49ers on the way to clinching its second Super Bowl berth in six years.
This team is more naturally talented than its 2018 Lombardi-lifting underdog counterparts led by backup Nick Foles. Jalen Hurts was jostling with Mahomes in the MVP race for much of the season, and the talented defensive personnel carried EVP Howie Roseman‘s multiple-year plan through to a dominant run.

Given these two teams’ potent offenses, the Eagles vs Chiefs bet I’m looking to place immediately is an alternate total at BetMGM Sportsbook: Over 51.5 total points scored (+120).
