Trend #1 — Score First & Have 68% Chance Of Winning Outright

It makes sense, but 68% of teams that score first win the Super Bowl outright.

But that doesn't mean you should go ahead and live bet the team that scores first. By then, you're going to lose value. A team that is -130 and scores a touchdown first will no longer be -130 on the live line, up 7-0.

This trend isn't just for touchdowns, though. It's for the team that scores first. A score can be a safety, field goal, or touchdown.

Last year, the Rams got ahead of the Bengals early and needed a last-minute touchdown to win the game. But the Rams still got the job done, helping bump this trend to 68%. It's been profitable.

Trend #2 — Nick Sirianni's Eagles Win Projected Close Games

Nick Sirianni is 4-0 against the spread and 4-0 straight up when listed as a pick-'em up to -3.

The Eagles have been sensational this year. But every time there's a slight doubt, the Eagles respond with a huge win.

They've won all four games where they've been slight favorites while Nick Sirianni has been the head coach.

The Eagles are currently sitting around -1.5 at the time of writing this.

Trend #3 — Andy Reid Struggles As Underdog in the Playoffs?

We don't have the biggest sample size, but it's something to think about.

Andy Reid is 0-2 straight up when listed as an underdog in the playoffs with the Chiefs. Kansas City has been a favorite in most games with Patrick Mahomes, but against the Eagles, the Chiefs will be underdogs.

It seems like oddsmakers know when another team might be slightly better than the Chiefs. This time around, with sharp money on the Eagles early, it's interesting to see how Reid and the Chiefs will do as underdogs.

Right now, it's not looking too hot for the Chiefs.

Trend #4 — The Team That Runs More Wins

The team that rushes the ball more in the Super Bowl has won 73.6% of the time against the spread and 73.2% straight up.

The Eagles rushed 147.6 yards per game this season while the Chiefs rushed 115.9 yards per game.

Even in the postseason, the Eagles have added 208 yards on the ground per game while the Chiefs have only rushed for 93 yards per game.

The Eagles should end up winning the rushing battle. While this isn't a lock, there's real evidence that the Eagles could end up winning the Super Bowl with this trend in place.

Trend #5 — Defensive Numbers Matter

The team that allowed fewer points per game during the regular season has won the last seven Super Bowls while also being 6-1 against the spread.

This year, the Eagles allowed 20.2 points per game while the Chiefs gave up 21.7 points per game.

Again, we have another trend supporting the Eagles to win the Super Bowl. If anyone cares, I'll be on the Eagles when the Super Bowl kicks off.
