It’s no secret that the Eagles defense is fearsome and one of the best put-together groups in the NFL. They allow the fewest overall yards per game and passing yards in the league and thanks to a deadly combo of two top-ten cornerbacks.
The Eagles also lead the NFL in sacks, which is the area we will focus on for Today’s Super Bowl bet.

Eagles Total More Sacks (-135)
The odds for this prop aren’t going to set the world on fire, but the outcome feels much more likely than the sportsbooks suggest.
Word on the street is that Patrick Mahomes is “feeling great” and will be good to go on Sunday. No surprise there. But one has to wonder just how healthy Mahomes is and how he will react when the Eagles’ defense is in his face.
According to offensive tackle Andrew Wylie, the Chiefs will put a lot of effort into keeping Mahomes “clean this week.” And I believe it because they need Mahomes to survive this game.
The problem is the Eagles‘ defense is too good to be silenced by some extra attention. Slowed, yes, but Philly will get to Mahomes come hell or high water.
The Eagles’ defensive sack rate is a staggering 11.49% compared to the second-best team, New England, at 8.31%. The Eagles are not slowing down either, with a 10.53% sack percentage in their previous three games and a 14.29% mark in the NFC Championship.
If you thirst for more value from this Super Bowl prediction, go ahead and add Haason Reddick to record a sack (-175) to this team prop. A same-game parlay of the two Super Bowl bets would raise the odds from -135 to +174.
