The current odds of the Philadelphia Eagles winning Super Bowl LVIII are +450, according to an update by DraftKings. The Eagles became the favorite for the first time this season after defeating the Kansas City Chiefs on Monday Night Football.
Initially, the Chiefs were the favorite to win the Super Bowl heading into their Week 11 matchup against the Eagles, which was a rematch of last year’s Super Bowl. However, the Eagles emerged victorious, winning 21-17 and becoming the outright favorite for the championship.
The Eagles began the season 5-0 before losing to the New York Jets in Week 6. However, they have gone on to win four games in a row since then, demonstrating their dominance as a top team in the league.
Quarterback Jalen Hurts sustained a knee injury in the second quarter against the Cowboys but continued to play, proving his toughness and dedication to the game. After a bye week in Week 10, Hurts was able to heal up and led the team to a significant victory against the Chiefs.
The Chiefs, on the other hand, have lost two out of their last three games, causing their odds to win the Super Bowl to slip to +475. They are currently tied with several other teams with a 7-3 record, but if they can turn things around, they still have a strong chance at securing a playoff spot.
Following their strong start, the San Francisco 49ers have endured some setbacks but have managed to bounce back, currently sitting at 7-3 and ranking as the third-best team in the NFC. Running back Christian McCaffrey has been a standout player for the 49ers, scoring 14 touchdowns in 10 games and proving to be a game-changer for the team.
As it stands, the Eagles, Chiefs, and 49ers are the top contenders for Super Bowl LVIII, with odds of +450, +475, and +475, respectively. This sets the stage for an exciting conclusion to the NFL season, with many teams vying for a shot at the championship.
