If you were holding a Chiefs Super Bowl futures ticket on Saturday, you were begging for Patrick Mahomes to be OK. The MVP frontrunner went down early in Kanas City’s Divisional Round victory over the Jaguars with an ankle injury, and could barely walk afterwards.
Mahomes was eventually pulled from the game and missed multiple series leading into halftime. Chiefs Nation breathed a collective sigh of relief when he came back onto the field for the third quarter, because without him their Super Bowl prospects are squashed.

Philly’s dominant victory over the Giants propelled them past the 49ers for the third shortest championship price tag, but the big story of the day was Mahomes’ injury.
Kansas City Chiefs Super Bowl Betting Analysis
The official diagnosis is a high ankle sprain for Mahomes. X-rays after the game were reportedly negative, but this is a major blow to KC’s title hopes. Mahomes could barely move when he returned, while his scrambling and pocket mobility were extremely compromised.
Yes, he found a way to lead the Chiefs to victory, but he clearly wasn’t operating like the superstar we’ve grown accustom to watching. It’s one thing to beat a young, inexperienced Jaguars team on one leg, but the challenge in the AFC Championship Game is going to be much more daunting.
Speaking of the conference title contest, Mahomes has KC back in that game for the fifth-straight season. He’s just the third QB in NFL history to accomplish the feat, and the first to do so in his first five years as a starter.
13 Secs to score? Find a way.
Be great without Tyreek? Find a way
High Ankle Sprain? Find a Way
Patrick Mahomes just keeps finding a way to get the job done. Love it.

Travis Kelce played a major role in the Chiefs Divisional Round win, catching a tight end playoff record 14 balls and scoring twice. One of those touchdowns came from Chad Henne, who orchestrated a 98-yard scoring drive with Mahomes on the sidelines.
Having a quality backup like Henne is a luxury most teams don’t have, but make no mistake KC can’t win the title if Mahomes isn’t close to 100%, let alone stuck on the sidelines. At +270, the Chiefs are a pass in the Super Bowl futures market, but there appears to be value on the Eagles.
Philadelphia Eagles Super Bowl Betting Analysis
Philadelphia raced out to a 28-0 lead over the Giants on Saturday and didn’t look back. Jalen Hurts showed no ill effects from the shoulder injury that plagued him down the stretch, throwing for 154 yards and 2 TD, while rushing for 34 yards and another score.
The Eagles marched up and down the field at will versus New York, pounding the rock relentlessly. Philadelphia rushed the ball 44 times for a whopping 268 yards. They used not only Hurts, but Miles Sanders, Boston Scott and Kenneth Gainwell as well to gash the Giants.
On the other side of the ball, Philly’s defense completely neutralized what had been a potent Giants attack. The Eagles held New York to 227 total yards and a measly 4.4 yards per play.
Yeah like they were saying. Anybody would look great at QB for the Eagles.. yeah ooook. HATERS MAN!! Jalen Hurts is SPECIAL. 🤡’s

The Eagles entered Saturday with +500 Super Bowl odds. That number would have been much shorter, but Philly dropped back-to-back games with Hurts out of the lineup, before underwhelming in their season finale.
Following their win that number is down to +350. However, it’s going to be a heck of a lot shorter after Sunday’s action if the Cowboys upset the Niners. Even if San Francisco does prevail, Philadelphia proved on Saturday they’re a team you absolutely don’t want to face.
With Hurts looking healthy, this is one of the most dangerous offenses in the league. They ranked third on that side of the ball per DVOA, and sixth on defense. They led the league in sacks by a wide margin and boasted the fifth best coverage grade.
Their lone weakness on D is versus the run, but they shored up their interior by adding Linval Joseph and Ndamukong Suh late in the campaign.
For much of the season Philadelphia looked like the best team in the league. Now that they’ve reached the NFC Championship Game, they’re just two wins away from proving it once and for all.
