NFL Monday 10* Top Play Philadelphia Eagles (+) @ Kansas City Chiefs @ 8:15 ET - This line is currently +3 in some spots as of early game day morning and we will jump on that as I am not sure it will last. There is a lot of +2.5 out there as well. The line is actually a key to my play here. In fact, this will not be the normal write-up you typically see from me. I am sure all of you know plenty about the Eagles and Chiefs and the current situation with each. I am going to talk to you purely about the betting angle with this one as that is the key. How in the world are the Chiefs favored by just 2.5 or 3 points against a team that everyone - save for people from Philly, maybe - would say is better than the Eagles? This is not a neutral site game like the Super Bowl was! This is a night game at Arrowhead and this line is basically telling you that the Eagles are at least as good if not better than the Chiefs. But the betting markets have a general idea of the knowledge that Philly, in between these two most recent years of going to the Super Bowl, had a combined regular season record of 31-33-1 in the 4 seasons from 2018 to 2021. How in the world is this line a -2.5 or -3 for KC when the Chiefs have gone 50-15 over those same 4 seasons? The point is both teams are off great seasons in 2022 and met in the Super Bowl just 9 months ago and both are having great seasons this year, but the Chiefs are the much more consistent team getting it done for many years! Kansas City, as you all know, just won the Super Bowl over this same team on a neutral field! So why is this revenge game for the Eagles priced this way? Someone knows something...and we do too! Based on this VERY interesting betting market for this one and my own interpretation of this match-up, I expect the Eagles will win outright but I am happy to grab the value of taking the points with the field goal available here. 10* PHILADELPHIA (+) points
