Chiefs vs. Eagles picks against the spread
“The Chiefs are going to score points. That means the Eagles will have to get their share of big plays as well. I think they do, mostly coming on the deep passing game.
“Look for Chiefs defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo to attack Hurts, who has struggled some when blitzed. Spagnuolo is known for his blitzing style, so it makes sense to do so here. The only problem is it can lead to big plays for Hurts running it and for the big chunk plays down the field to Eagles receivers DeVonta Smith and A.J. Brown.
“Both offenses will have success. That will make this a fun Super Bowl. But, in the end, new school will beat old school. Give me the best quarterback in the league on the biggest stage. Mahomes will close out the season with the award trifecta: League MVP, Super Bowl MVP and another ring to add to his first one.
“The Chiefs dynasty will be in full force come late Sunday evening.”

“Jalen Hurts could prove to be a nightmare for Kansas City as the quarterback’s skill set matches up well against this defense. As we’ve pointed out throughout the postseason, Hurts has enjoyed particular success on deep balls, owning an NFL-best 123.4 on throws 25 yards or more down the field. The Chiefs allow the fourth-highest passer rating on those types of throws this season. Meanwhile, Philadelphia does run most of its offense in the shotgun. The club’s 89% shotgun rate was the second highest in the league this year, and while playing against shotgun the Chiefs rank 29th in the league giving up a 94.4 passer rating. Even if they can bottle up Hurts through the air, he can be just as lethal with his legs, especially against a K.C. defense that has given up the third-most rushing yards to quarterbacks this season. …
