We’re just days away from the conclusion of the 2022 NFL Season with the Eagles and Chiefs meeting on Sunday at State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Ariz.
Here are each of the 7 legs that make up this juicy play:
-- Eagles -6.5
Here’s the deal: I’m probably too confident that the Eagles win this game comfortably. Feel free to take this out if you’re less bullish. I think Philadelphia’s edges in the trenches are significant enough to where we could see a similar game to Bucs-Chiefs from a few years back.
-- Total points o41.5
Nearly a full 10 points under the current total of 51.0.
-- Jalen Hurts 35+ rushing yards
I’m anticipating Chris Jones, Frank Clark and the rest of the Chiefs pass rush to be enough of a problem to where Hurts will have to scramble a few times outside of his designed runs. Kansas City’s defense ranked No. 8 against the run in the regular season, and so it wouldn’t surprise me if Hurts led the Eagles in rushing.
-- A.J. Brown 60+ receiving yards
The Chiefs allowed the eighth-most fantasy points to wide receivers during the regular season. This is a modest number for Brown.
-- DeVonta Smith 50+ receiving yards
My thinking is the same for Smith as it is for Brown.
-- Travis Kelce 65+ receiving yards
The Chiefs passing attack is a funnel to Kelce, who possesses remarkable chemistry with Patrick Mahomes. That’s a huge benefit when it comes to Kelce’s freelancing. He’s cleared this number with ease in each playoff game.
-- Isiah Pacheco 10+ receiving yards
Pacheco has taken the clear role as Kansas City’s lead back. He’ll be vital when it comes to checkdowns for Mahomes to help negate some of the pressure from Philly’s elite pass rush. Pacheco had 59 receiving yards against the Bengals.
Total payout: +1200
