Alternate Line Parlay Error is Free Value for Chiefs Bettors

  • A line and total parlay of Kansas City Chiefs +1.5 and over 49.5 is +280 odds.
  • Questionably, Chiefs -0.5 and over 49.5 is also +280.
  • An alternate line of total points for the Chiefs is -120 to be over 24.5 points.

GLENDALE Ariz. – The underdog Kansas City Chiefs make their way back to the Super Bowl to face the Philadelphia Eagles. Alternate lines have been posted by sportsbooks, allowing bettors to customize lines and totals.

Among the types of alternate lines listed, total points for each team for the game, half, or first quarter are available. Online sportsbooks also have intriguing parlay options combining a line and a total, one of which may be a mistake that bettors can take advantage of.

Sportsbook Error Gives Chiefs Bettors Value

A rare but certainly welcome sight on sportsbooks is always any errors made by oddsmakers. One such instance of this is odds for a line plus total parlay of Chiefs +1.5 and over 49.5 which comes in at +280 odds. Confusingly, a parlay with Chiefs -0.5 and over 49.5 has the same odds of +280.

Chiefs’ bettors that already had confidence in them winning can certainly enjoy an extra two points of leeway for Kansas City, allowing them to lose by one and cash in the same odds than if they had won outright.

The total over 49.5 is quite big, especially in the low-scoring playoff rounds that led up to the Super Bowl. However, both the Eagles and the Chiefs are the top ranked scoring offense, each averaging 28.7 points per game.

While the Eagles defense has been strong with the fourth ranked scoring defense, the Chiefs defense has been just average, at rank 15 in the league. This certainly provides opportunity for the Eagles offense, which the Chiefs will have to keep up with.

Given the extra week of rest for Patrick Mahomes and extra planning time for offensive mastermind Andy Reid, the Chiefs will be well-equipped to score toe-to-toe against the Eagles, even if their defense has been stout. Bettors who were already bullish on the Chiefs will find free value in a line that will likely change soon if it is indeed an error.

Chiefs and Eagles Total Points Lines Under Season Average

With NFL betting sites listing total points odds for the Chiefs and Eagles at 24.5 and 25.5 respectively, bettors looking for a shootout can enjoy some nice odds of -120 and -110 each for the overs.

As previously said, both teams average a huge 28.7 points per game, meaning they would need to score their season average to hit the over for both of their total score props.

Over the course of the entire season, the Chiefs failed to score 25 points just six times, with two more games finishing at 24 points. The Eagles similarly only fell short of scoring 26 seven times, with three additional games of 24+ points.

In short, over bettors can feel confident in having the two best scoring offenses in the entire NFL face off against each other when the lights are at their brightest. With -120 odds for the Chiefs to score over 24.5 points and -110 odds for the Eagles to log over 25.5 points, NFL fans can find good value rooting for offenses that have been consistently exceptional all year.
