Super Bowl 57 Betting Trends, Stats, Notes: Action Network Betting Primer article feature image

Welcome to Super Bowl week and the official Super Bowl 57 betting primer. We're here to answer some questions, dish out some stats and facts, talk props, sides, totals, exotics, Gatorade, the anthem and more.

Welcome to the Super Bowl edition of Action Network's NFL betting primer.

All data, stats and trends are updated as of Sunday, Feb. 12, 12 p.m. ET.

1. The Historical Underdog

Patrick Mahomes is 7-1-1 against the spread (87.5%) as an underdog in his career, the best win percentage as an underdog since the merger. If Mahomes closes as an underdog in Super Bowl 57, it will prevent him from tying Peyton Manning for the longest streak (14) as a betting favorite in the playoffs in Super Bowl history.

2. Will The Line Win Again?

Follow the line movement in the Super Bowl. Eighteen times in Super Bowl history, the line has moved 1.5 points or more from opening to closing. The team's direction the line moves toward (-4 to -6, +6 to +4.5) is 16-2 SU and 14-4 ATS.

The two losses: SB 48 Broncos vs. Seattle, SB 25 Bills vs. Giants.

3. Will It Happen Again?

Last year, in Super Bowl 56, the Rams won 23-20 but failed to cover the 4.5-point spread, giving the cover to the Bengals. Entering the game, Super Bowl winners with a spread of six or less had been 28-0 ATS.

Now, entering Super Bowl 57, 21 Super Bowls have had a spread of four or fewer. The straight-up winner has covered all 21 – 11 favorites SU & 10 dogs SU.

Team Trends 


Chiefs entered the playoffs 6-11 ATS (35.3%). In the 56-year history of the Super Bowl, no team has won the Super Bowl with less than a 40% ATS win pct entering the playoffs. The previous teams went 0-3 straight up.

Worst ATS Teams to Make a Super Bowl:

  • 2004 Panthers, 6-10 ATS (37.5%) (NE 32-29, NE -7)
  • 1980 Rams, 5-10-1 ATS (33.3%) (PIT 31-19, PIT -10.5)
  • 1977 Vikings, 5-8-1 ATS (38.5%) (OAK 32-14, OAK -4.5)

Chiefs have won 7 consecutive games SU entering Super Bowl

KC is 8th team past 20 years to enter Super Bowl on at least a 7-game SU winning streak.
Those teams are 5-3 SU (4-4 ATS). All 8 games had team on the streak winning the game or the margin 4 pts or less.
Chiefs entered 2019-20 Super Bowl on 8-game win streak and beat the San Francisco 49ers.

Chiefs Defense Helping Mahomes

The Chiefs defense has allowed 20 points or fewer in three consecutive games. When the K.C. defense gets hot, watch out. Mahomes and Co. are 17-2 SU after allowing 20 pts or fewer in consecutive games, winning 10 in a row dating back to 2020.

If Kansas City closes as an underdog

The Chiefs' streak of 15 consecutive playoff games as a favorite would come to an end (longest streak in the Super Bowl era).

If Kansas City closes as a favorite

The Chiefs would be favored in their 16th straight playoff game — the longest streak in the Super Bowl era. Their last playoff game as an underdog? 2016 Divisional at Patriots. Alex Smith vs. Tom Brady. The Patriots won 27-20.

Rematch Momentum

Chiefs-Bengals was a rematch of last year's AFC title game. In the Super Bowl era, this was the 7th time two franchises met in at least two straight Conference Championships. The winner of the rematch is 7-1 in the Super Bowl – the only loss was the 1987 Broncos.

Even more unique. Chiefs got revenge on the Bengals in the rematch. That’s only the 4th time thats happened. Team loses 1st, wins 2nd. Those three teams are 3-0 SU in the Super Bowl.

Another Eagles Longshot

The Eagles were 25-1 to win it all in the preseason, which ranked 13th in the NFL behind teams like the Colts, Broncos and Rams.
Over the past 40 years, the Eagles at 25-1 odds would be the seventh-highest odds to win the Super Bowl.

Keeping It Low

Eagles have allowed just 7 points in consecutive games (14 in total) entering the Super Bowl.

Teams to allow less than 14 pts in consecutive games entering Super Bowl since 2000:

  • 2018 Eagles – Won
  • 2003 Bucs – Won
  • 2001 Giants & Ravens

On The Road

In the Super Bowl, the Eagles will be playing their first game away from home since they faced the Cowboys in Dallas the day before Christmas — exactly 50 days to the day of Super Bowl LVII.

  • Eagles were the 8th team to play their 4th consecutive home game entering a Conference Championship in the last 20 years. Those teams are now 7-1 SU. The only loss? 2019 Saints vs. Rams
  • Those previous six teams to win in the Conference Championship after the home streak went an even 3-3 SU/ATS in the Super Bowl.

Early & Often

Eagles are 14-5 against the first half spread, the most profitable first-half ATS team this season.
Eagles are 16-3 in a 6-pt teaser this season, tied for the 2nd-best record in the NFL behind the Chargers at 16-2.

Sack Masters

Eagles have 8 total sacks in the playoffs, bringing their total to 78 on the season, the 3rd-most sacks for any team in a single season since the merger (1970).

Most Sacks in a Season All-Time (Including Playoffs)

  • 1984 Bears (82 sacks)
  • 1985 Bears (80 sacks)
  • 2022 Eagles (78 sacks)

Since the NFL merger in 1970, nine teams have recorded 65+ sacks as a team in the regular season. Eagles are the first of those nine to even make a Super Bowl.

Quarterback Trends 

Kansas City Chiefs

Patrick Mahomes

2022 Record: 16-3 SU | 7-12 ATS
Playoffs: 10-3 SU | 8-5 ATS
• The Chiefs are underdogs. The public is fading Kansas City. We heard the same story last week early on and K.C. ended up closing as the favorite. The Chiefs closed with 37% of the tickets, the lowest bet % of Mahomes' 93-start career. This would only be the third time Mahomes closes as a favorite, with the minority share of the ticket count:

Mahomes as Dog W/ Under 50% Tickets


Bills (-2.5) | BUF, 24-20


Chargers (-3.5) | KC, 38-28

Mahomes’ 18th start in January or later. He’s been favored the previous 17 entering the Super Bowl — he’s 13-4 SU and 9-8 ATS.

Mahomes is 18-6-1 ATS as a favorite of three points or fewer (or an underdog) in his career (30-37-1 ATS as favorite of 3.5 or more).

• This will be the 7th Super Bowl to feature the league leader in regular season passing yards (Mahomes). Each of the previous 6 lost SU in the Super Bowl. The first was Dan Marino in 1984. The other 5 have all come after the year 2000 (Brady X2, P. Manning, R. Gannon, K. Warner).

Mahomes is 7-10-2 against the second-half spread this season, his least profitable 2H ATS year as a pro.

+ After losing the second-half spread against the Bengals, Mahomes has a 8-4-1 2H ATS record in the playoffs.
+ In the Chiefs' past nine games with Mahomes, Kansas City is 0-7-2 against the second-half spread entering the Super Bowl.

Away from home this season, Mahomes and the Chiefs are 6-3 to the over. Since the beginning of last season, they are 12-5 to the over away from Arrowhead with Mahomes.

Heading West

Super Bowl Location: Glendale, Arizona
Time Zone: Mountain Standard Time (MST)

Mahomes has played 19 games in his pro career either in the Pacific or Mountain Standard time zone. Mahomes is 17-2 straight up in those games. His two losses? Back in 2018 against the Rams and Seahawks. Mahomes is 7-0 SU in MST and 13-0 SU in PST and MST since the start of the 2019 season.

Favored or Underdog

If Favored: Mahomes would be favored in his 14th straight playoff game (T-longest streak all-time with Peyton Manning).
If Underdog: Mahomes streak of 13 consecutive playoff games to start his career as a favorite would come to an end. Longest streak ever to begin career and 1 game shy of Peyton Manning’s streak of 14 straight playoff games as a favorite.

All The Hardware

The Eventual MVP? Mahomes is expected to win the MVP Award this season after receiving 49 of the 50 possible first-place votes for the AP All-Pro team. How has the MVP historically fared in the playoffs?

Won MVP: 10 total times (Last? Kurt Warner in 1999)
The Rest: 56 lost in the Super Bowl or prior

Philadelphia Eagles

Jalen Hurts

2022 Record: 16-1 SU | 10-7 ATS
Playoffs: 2-1 SU | 2-1 ATS
Hurts is 21-4 (84%) straight up in games in which his team is favored (13-11-1 ATS). In the past 20 years, no QB (minimum 20 starts) has a better win pct as a favorite than Hurts.

Hurts' Four Career Losses as a Favorite


Commanders | PHI (-510), Lost 32-21


Giants | PHI (-184), Lost 13-7


Raiders | PHI (-108), Lost 33-23


Cowboys | PHI (-164), Lost 37-17

• This season, the Eagles are 16-1 straight up with Jalen Hurts and 0-2 SU without him.

Hurts has had success vs. the best of the best this season, going 7-0 SU vs. playoff teams.

Hurts, 24, would be the youngest QB to win a Super Bowl out of the NFC (Jared Goff was 24 in 2019).

"Wit" or "Witout"

Super Bowl Location: Glendale, Arizona

The Super Bowl is in Arizona, not Philadelphia. Hurts has performed much better at home than on the road.

Home: 13-5-1 ATS – 10-3 ATS at home as an underdog or a favorite of seven points or fewer.
Away: 6-12 ATS – Under .500 ATS on the road each of his three seasons in the NFL.

Nerves of Steel

Super Bowl Experience: Mahomes (3rd) | Hurts (1st)

Does It Matter?QBs with Super Bowl experience (started a SB prior to this year), facing a QB with no SB experience, are 19-15 SU and 16-18 ATS all-time.
Even More Experience:
This will be the 21st time in Super Bowl history where one QB has a 2+ Super Bowl experience gap, the experienced QB is 12-8 SU.

We Had Them in the First Half

First Half King: Jalen Hurts is 13-4 against the first-half spread this season, the most profitable QB ATS in the first half in the NFL.

Last Year: Hurts was 5-11 against the first-half spread
Rarely Trailing: Hurts is 11-1-2 on the 1H moneyline in his past 14 starts.
Dead Even: Hurts is 8-8-1 against the second-half spread this season.
