- Nick Bolton’s prop of 10.5 total tackles and assists comes in at -115 for the over.
- Haason Reddick is -200 to secure at least one sack.
- Marcus Epps has +140 odds to go over 5.5 total tackles and assists.
GLENDALE Ariz. – The Philadelphia Eagles’ talented defense helps them come in as 1.5-point favorites against the perennial offensive powerhouse Kansas City Chiefs. The defenses in this game will be instrumental in slowing down the opposing league-best scoring offenses.
Online sportsbooks similarly believe so, publishing various props for Eagles and Chiefs players at all levels of the defense. A few players that headline this is Eagles defensive end Haason Reddick, Chiefs linebacker Nick Bolton and Philadelphia safety Marcus Epps.
Nick Bolton is a Tackle Machine
Bolton has put together a phenomenal sophomore campaign this year, finishing second in the league in total tackles with a massive 180 as well as leading the league with 99 solo tackles. He sports -115 odds to go over his prop of 10.5 total tackles and assists.
The matchup for him against the Eagles and their run-heavy gameplan provides the perfect environment for Bolton to reach 11+ total tackles. Among all NFL teams, the Eagles are one of only four teams to run more times than they pass, with 50.04% of their plays being runs.
On the season, Bolton has recorded 11+ total tackles in six games, but reached 10 or more in 10 games.
Bettors can likely capitalize on the ground-and-pound philosophy of the Eagles, which will put Bolton in the spotlight to stop Miles Sanders, Jalen Hurts, or any over the middle RPO passes to tight ends like Dallas Goedert.
At -115 odds for the over, this is certainly a prop that bettors can get excited about ahead of kickoff.
Eagles Defense is Pivotal to a Win
With NFL sportsbooks setting down odds for much of the Eagles defensive players, a few notable ones would be Haason Reddick to record one sack (-200) and Marcus Epps to record 6 or more total tackles (+140).

Haason Reddick has been a menace on the defensive line this season, racking up a career-high 16 sacks during the regular season and 3.5 sacks during the playoffs. Simply put, Reddick has been a massive thorn in the sides of QBs and offensive linemen alike.
While -200 odds to record a sack is far from profitable, bettors are able to include it in a parlay to increase the odds and potential to hit big or place down big money on a statistically likely play. His incredible season speaks for itself, as Reddick failed to record a whole sack in just six games all year.
Epps on the other hand seems like an unlikely bet at +140 odds, however, his role against star tight end Travis Kelce as well as his constant on-field presence makes for great value. In the regular season Epps recorded 6 or more total tackles in nine games.
Importantly, Epps leads the Eagles in total snaps on the year, and his role as a safety will see him cleaning up many plays from Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce as one of his primary defenders.
With a combination of top-tier usage and a crucial role on the Eagles defense, Epps and his player prop of over 5.5 total tackles can be a big money maker for bettors willing to take his +140 odds.
