Hey everyone, we are back for a special Big Game edition of “CLEs Totals.” We have been gone for a while due to some health and personal issues, but this is THE BIG GAME and I can't let you, the gambling public, down by not giving you my favorite total for this game.
The Eagles come into this one 16-3 on the season as the number one seed in the NFC. The NFC Champions are coming off a dominating 31-7 win in their NFC title game against the 49ers. The Chiefs, just like the Eagles, are 16-3 on the season and the number one seed in their conference. They're coming off a dramatic 20-17 win over the Bengals in their AFC title game.
The Chiefs and the Eagles have been arguably the top two teams in the NFL all season and they are also the top two offensive first half teams in the NFL this season so that is where we are headed for this bet. The Eagles rank first in the NFL in first half points per game averaging 18.2 points. That number has increased the last three games as they have averaged 21.7 points per 1st half. The Chiefs rank second in the NFL with a first half average of 15.5 points per game. That number has also increased the last three games with an average of 18 points per first half. Another plus is that this number is above the average when the Chiefs are not in Kansas City, as they average 18.4 points in the first half of away games.
I see these trends continuing on Sunday. Both teams script plays very well so I see points from the get go. There are just too many playmakers and offensive weapons like Mahomes, Kelce, Hurts, Brown, etc on the field so points should be a plenty in the first half. Let's have a great Sunday and cash this bet.
The Play: Chiefs v Eagles 1H o24.5 (+100)
