This year’s Super Bowl spread has remained pretty stagnant with the Eagles favored by 1.5-points to lift the Lombardi Trophy in Arizona and -125 favorites in the Super Bowl odds.
What does our formula predict? Well first, let’s look back at a postseason record that has gone 9-3 in against the spread picks and 10-2 on totals.
That’s a 75-percent record ATS and 83-percent record on over/unders. Combine those predictions together and we’re looking at a 79.2-percent NFL Playoff record.
My @SBD formula goes …
▪️0-2 ATS in conf championships
▪️2-0 on totals
▪️9-3 ATS in the playoffs
▪️10-2 on totals in the playoffs
Let’s finish the season strong https://t.co/xCLrVZHFn5

Assuming you had bet $100 on each of those outcomes and at -110 odds, you would have won $1,729 on those 19 wins, giving back $500 on the losses, and would be sitting with a cool $1,229 of profit heading into the Super Bowl. Not bad!
Will the formula continue with its’ success in the big game? To start with, the predicted score falls about right in line with what sportsbooks have lined the game at, by predicting an Eagles win by 2.6 points.
- Kansas City Chiefs: 23.3
- Philadelphia Eagles: 25.9
That predicted score is just 1.1 points over the Eagles’ current spread of 1.5 points so the formula is predicting the Eagles to just barely cover the spread.
When it comes to the total points for the Super Bowl in over/under betting, once again the SBD Formula’s predicted total is falling right in line with where the total is sitting right now. A predicted score of Eagles 25.9 – 23.3 gives us a total of 49.2.
That falls just under the predicted total at USA betting sites of 51.
SBD Formula’s Super Bowl Picks:
- Moneyline Pick: Philadelphia Eagles
- ATS Pick: Eagles -1.5
- Total Pick: Under 51

Ryan Metivier – Editor
- Super Bowl Predicted Score: Eagles 27-24
- Best Bet: Eagles -1.5
- Favorite Super Bowl Prop Bet: Eagles to have more possession (-140)
In a battle of two number-one seeds who each finished the regular season 14-3, it’s no wonder we have one of the shortest Super Bowl spreads in history here. On one hand, the Eagles’ are likely the better overall team. But the Chiefs have the league’s best player and MVP in Patrick Mahomes. Both Mahomes and Eagles’ QB Jalen Hurts are less than 100 percent heading into this finale. That leaves some big question marks, but also makes it hard to envision either team running away from the other.
Therefore I’m backing a close game but giving the edge to the Eagles. Mahomes will do enough to keep the Chiefs within striking distance. When Philly faced competent quarterbacks (and it didn’t happen), but when they did, Jared Goff, Aaron Rodgers and Dak Prescott all put up over 30 points. In fact, so did Taylor Heinicke. But, the Eagles just look like the more well-rounded team; third in YPG on offense and second in YPG allowed on defense. They were third overall in DVOA, third in offensive DVOA and sixth in defensive DVOA. The Chiefs were fourth, first and 17th respectively in DVOA. The Eagles had a ridiculous 70 sacks in the regular season (first in sack rate) this year and should be finding ways to pressure Mahomes all day as the team with the second-highest pressure rate.
When it comes to my top prop, I think this one has a clear path to cashing and it makes sense. Win or lose, if the Eagles are to win on Sunday they will look to control the clock. Doing so would mean plenty of running. Something they excel at and rely on, being the highest run-rate team in the league. The Eagles were eighth in the league in an average time of possession with 31:11, with KC not far behind at 30:08. The Eagles’ path to victory comes on the ground and I’ll bet them to hold the possession edge at -140 odds at DraftKings Sportsbook.

- Super Bowl Predicted Score: Chiefs 27-21
- Best Bet: Chiefs +1.5 (-110)
- Favorite Super Bowl Prop Bet: Dallas Goedert over 4.5 receptions (-135)
In a Super Bowl that should be close and exciting, I will give the edge to the more experienced team. The Eagles have cruised to the Super Bowl without being tested. They beat the Giants 38-7 then defeated the quarterback-less 49ers 31-7. Philadelphia is definitely a talented team and deserves to be in the big game, but we have yet to see how they perform in a close, meaningful game. The spread is close for a reason, so late in the fourth quarter, I will back Patrick Mahomes and co. The ball will be flying regardless of the victor, and Dallas Goedert has reached five receptions in his last three games. His targets in his last four games are 6, 5, 7, and 6. The Chiefs’ defense has been susceptible to tight ends and Hurts trusts Goedert in big-time moments.
Bob Duff – Sports Writer
- Super Bowl Predicted Score: Chiefs 27-24
- Best Bet: Chiefs +1.5 (-110)
- Favorite Super Bowl Prop Bet: Jalen Hurts anytime TD (-115)
On paper, this game is offering all indications that it could be a Super Bowl for the ages, and it will live up to that billing. The last team to drive to the Super Bowl like the Eagles with back-to-back lopsided wins was the 1990 Buffalo Bills, victims of Scott Norwood’s infamous wide right field goal attempt on the game’s final play. This time, the Eagles will also be victimized by a late field goal attempt. On this occasion, though, it’ll be Kansas City’s Harrison Butker smashing the game-winner straight through the uprights.
Brady Trettenero – Editor
- Super Bowl Predicted Score: Eagles 27- 20
- Best Bet: Eagles -1.5 (-110)
- Favorite Super Bowl Prop Bet: Kenneth Gainwell Over 34.5 Rushing + Receiving Yards (-110)
There’s an old saying that defense wins championships, and I expect that to reign true more than ever in Super Bowl 57. The Eagles’ defense has racked up an NFL-best 78 sacks this season and features one of the game’s most dominant edge rushers in Haason Reddick. With Patrick Mahomes having limited mobility due to his ankle injury, the Eagles’ defensive line will be the difference. We saw in the 2021 Super Bowl how the Bucs getting consistent pressure on Mahomes completely disrupted KC’s offense. The Eagles are the healthier and better defensive team, and I’m backing them to win and cover the spread Sunday.
