Philadelphia Inhabits New Role As Super Bowl Wagering Co-Favorite

Philadelphia Inhabits New Role As Super Bowl Wagering Co-Favorite
Fact Checked by Jim Tomlin

The combination of a flawed Eagles win over Washington last Sunday and an even more flawed Kansas City loss to Denver has shuffled the Super Bowl futures odds just a bit at Pennsylvania sports betting sites. The Birds and Chiefs head into November in a virtual tie for the Super Bowl futures odds lead.

Just about across the board among online sportsbooks, both the Eagles (7-1) and the Chiefs (6-2) are +500 to win the Super Bowl being played Feb. 10 at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas. Only in scattered instances are the Birds listed at +550 or +600, or the Chiefs listed at +450.

Bet MGM, FanDuel and Bet365 all have both Philadelphia and Kansas City at +500 to win the Super Bowl. Unibet and BetRivers have both teams at +550. There are some minor variances at a few other books. For instances, Caesars Pennsylvania Sportsbook has the Eagles at +550 with the Chiefs at +500; DraftKings has Philly at +600 with Kansas City +500, and PointsBet has the Eagles at +500 and Kansas City at +450.

Generally, the opening odds for winning the Super Bowl had the Chiefs as the favorite at +600 and the Eagles were at +900.

Super Bowl Rematch Coming Nov. 20

The Eagles and Chiefs have a rematch of the last Super Bowl in a Monday night game, Nov. 20, in Kansas City.

From the perspective of Super Bowl futures odds, the San Francisco 49ers are right behind Philadelphia and Kansas City for winning the Lombardi Trophy at operators that offer PA sports betting promotions. The Niners have odds in a narrow range of +525 to +650, but mostly at +600.

After that, there’s a handful of teams who get some respect on the odds board, including Miami, Dallas, Buffalo and Baltimore, mostly in the range of +900 to +1400. Interestingly, Buffalo, which opened at +900 at the beginning of the season, is now +1700 at Caesars.

For individual honors futures wagers at BetMGM, Eagles quarterback Jalen Hurts has the highest ticket percentage (13.2%) to win the MVP while Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes has the highest handle percentage (12.8%). Hurts is the biggest liability for the BetMGM Pennsylvania Sportsbook.
