NFL | Kansas City 38 @ Philadelphia 35 | 02/12 | 11:30 PM UTC
Kansas City +1.5 -110
ANALYSIS: Classic head vs. gut play in a Super Bowl with two No. 1 seeds starting MVP-caliber quarterbacks and talented rosters. The head says the Eagles, which rolled through the NFC, enter with one of the NFL's top defenses and have historic ATS stats in their favor. The gut says the Chiefs, which are far more experienced, get the uber-successful Andy Reid and Patrick Mahomes coming off extra preparation and would have been favorites if not dealing with injuries. (The report is clear.) Philadelphia has luckily not been forced to rely on Jalen Hurts' injured shoulder yet while rolling through weakened opponents. Kansas City has succeeded despite Mahomes' high-ankle sprain, which should be quite fine with two additional weeks of rest, while outdueling Josh Allen and Joe Burrow. Despite so many tickets on Philly, the line has not budged. There are three picks in this write-up: Chiefs +1.5, Eagles 1H and the double result.
