Philadelphia Eagles Win Over Kansas City Chiefs Shakes Up NFL Futures

Spread the Word:

On Monday night, we were treated to a Super Bowl rematch, when the Kansas City Chiefs hosted the Philadelphia Eagles. It was a great night for Monday Night Football, with the game being the most-watched Monday night game in 27 years. It was also great for the NFL, as it was the most-watched game on any day or network this season.

And it was a great night for NFL bettors, with the four-point Eagles win altering the odds on a number of futures wagers.

The Race for MVP

At, Eagles quarterback Jalen Hurts is the new MVP favorite, paying +250. He didn’t have a big game, throwing for just 150 yards and an interception. But he did engineer a fourth-quarter comeback, and he did it with all of the eyes of the football world watching.

Last season, Hurts was the MVP runner-up to Patrick Mahomes. But at Pennsylvania online sportsbooks, and across the country, he is now the safest bet.

Lamar Jackson of the Baltimore Ravens is second at +350, and Mahomes is the third betting favorite at +375. Mahomes also threw an interception on Monday and didn’t have a great game. But he threw an almost sure 51-yard touchdown pass that would have given Kansas City the lead with less than two minutes to play, but wide receiver Marquez Valdes-Scantling dropped the pass at the goal line.

The only other MVP bet at less than +1500 is the +500 on Miami Dolphins quarterback Tua Tagovailoa.

Super Bowl Futures

The Chiefs and Eagles were Super Bowl teams last February, and they are tied with the San Francisco 49ers to be in this coming February’s Super Bowl. At all three teams are paying +450 to win Super Bowl LVIII in Las Vegas.

In the NFC, sitting behind the Eagles and 49ers, are the Dallas Cowboys at +1000. The Detroit Lions are next at +1200.

In the AFC, and trailing the Chiefs, are the Baltimore Ravens at +800. The AFC East-leading Dolphins are third at +900. The Cincinnati Bengals were once one of the favorites to win the Super Bowl. But with the loss of quarterback Joe Burrow for the season, Ohio online sportsbooks have them at +12500 longshots.

Steelers Shake Up Offense for Stretch Run

The Keystone State’s other team, the Pittsburgh Steelers, is also in the Super Bowl mix. At Pennsylvania brick-and-mortar sportsbooks, they are paying +7000 to win the Super Bowl, and among Steelers fans, the belief in the team is even higher.

After watching the Steelers fail to break 400 yards of offense in any game for the entirety of the tenure of offensive coordinator Matt Canada – nearly three full years – he was fired this week by head coach Mike Tomlin. Taking Canada’s place on an interim basis are two offensive assistants, running backs coach Eddie Faulker, and quarterbacks coach Mike Sullivan.

Faulkner will operate as the offensive coordinator, and Sullivan will call offensive plays during the game.

The Steelers will test out their new offense at Cincinnati, where has made them one-point favorites. The 6-4 Steelers are also favorites to make the playoffs, paying -140.
