- Odds have changed and the Philadelphia Eagles are the new Super Bowl favorites, jumping the Chiefs
- Philadelphia’s Super Bowl odds have shortened from +265 to +245 in the last couple of days
- We provide you the latest Super Bowl 57 odds below, plus our pick on who the best bet is
In a matter of days, the Chiefs have gone from Super Bowl frontrunners to the second-betting favorites along with their opponent on Sunday, the Cincinnati Bengals. The Eagles are now at the top of the odds board, shortening from +265 immediately after the Divisional Round to their current +245 as the chalk.
Questions continue to surround Patrick Mahomes and the status of his high ankle sprain injury. With Chiefs head coach Andy Reid saying his quarterback is “doing ok” in his latest update, there is some concern that the NFL MVP odds favorite won’t be able to make it on the field for the Conference Championship.
As such, Philly now is the favorite in the Super Bowl 57 odds, with the Chiefs sliding a notch below them. Check out the last Super Bowl odds below as well as our analysis and pick.

For the first time this season, the Eagles have been given the best odds to capture the Lombardi Trophy. Without a doubt, they had the most dominant victory in the Divisional Round defeating the Giants 38-7 in a game that was basically over by halftime.
Are Philadelphia Eagles Best Super Bowl Bet?
If there were any questions about the status of Jalen Hurt’s shoulder heading into the playoff game against the Giants, he more than answered them. Is he 100%? Probably not, but he showed that he’s more than healthy enough, throwing for two touchdowns and running in a score in the first half alone.
Delivering a shellacking to their NFC East rival shortened Philly’s title odds immensely, but they were still underdogs to win it all following the Divisional Round.

Prior to Hurts’ injury in Week 15, the Eagles were riding as the second betting favorite. They had the best record in the league up to that point at 13-1, with their only loss coming in a shocking Monday Night loss to the Commanders in Week 10.
The NFC East Division winners’ title odds continued to fade with Hurts out, as they lost back-to-back games before salvaging a victory in the final week of the season. However, they barely won that contest with Hurts back against a Giants team that was not starting many of their regulars.
After earning a playoff bye, Hurts and the Eagles responded to their late-season swoon with a vengeance. The NFL’s top-rated passing defense held Daniel Jones to just 135 yards and on offense they dominated on the ground, finishing with 268 rush yards and owning the time of possession.
Chiefs Super Bowl Odds Hinge on Mahomes
There’s no two ways about it, the Chiefs’ Super Bowl odds are fading because of Mahomes’ injury. He was clinical on the first drive of their Divisional Playoff game against the Jags, completing six of eight passes before finding Travis Kelce for a major. The Chiefs ate up six minutes of the clock on that drive and it appeared we might see a blowout.
After Jacksonville responded to tie the game, the dynamic QB went right back to work, picking apart the Jags D. Everything changed when Jaguars’ pass rusher Arden Key landed on his ankle and he limped off the field. Mahomes finished that drive which ended with a field goal, but it was obvious he wasn’t the same player.
“He’s worked hard in the treatment and is doing O.K."

Forced to come out for the rest of the half, backup Chad Henne played his part, leading a 98-yard TD drive, before Mahomes came back to finish the contest in a diminished capacity in the second half. Replacing the likely MVP for a quarter is one thing, but if Mahomes can’t go on Sunday, it will spell big trouble for KC.
Burrow Can’t Stop Winning
Yes, the Chiefs still won against the Jags, but they’ll be facing playoff Burrow next. Keep in mind, this is a Bengals team that’s beaten Mahomes three times including once this year and in the AFC Championship Game last year where they held the Chiefs to three points over the final 30 minutes before winning in overtime.
While the Bengals have their own injury concerns on the offensive line, Joe Cool showed that’s really not an issue against the Bills.
The Bengals share identical Super Bowl odds to the Chiefs at this point and when you combine their recent results versus the Chiefs and Mahomes’ ankle issue, at +265 we’re picking them before the odds shorten any more.
With everything essentially going in Cincy’s favor at this point, we like Burrow to finish the job after falling just short to the Rams in the Super Bowl last season.
