Chiefs vs Eagles Prediction & NFL Odds for Week 4

by Mitchell MartinSeptember 30, 2021
  • Patrick Mahomes and co continue offensive dominance
  • Eagles need to keep pace
  • Statement game for Jalen Hurts

When the Chiefs travel to Philadelphia for this early Sunday matchup, they will run into one of the more ruthless crowds in sports, something that Mahomes and the chiefs need to be prepared for.

Heading into this game, it will be apparent that one of the league’s top offenses will score. It will be interesting to see if the Eagles can go toe to toe with this team and put up points at a premium.

The Chiefs’ offense comes into this game second in EPA/play, fourth in yards/play, and tied for third in % of drives with a score. The defense they are going up against is respectable but is coming off a bad game in which they allowed 41 to the Cowboys.

Getting off the field on third down is where this game will be won or lost for the Eagles. They had significant troubles doing that this past Monday night as they are going up against a Chiefs’ team that converts 55% of the time. That’s the best in the league.

Betting Odds & Lines for This Game

Chiefs vs Eagles Prediction: Spread

As bad as the Chiefs have been against the spread, this season -7 seems favorable for them. The Eagles are coming off a 20 point loss to the Cowboys Monday, and the Chiefs are much more potent of an offense.

The Eagle’s line will have a tough time standing up against the pass rush of the chiefs manned by Frank Clark and Chris Jones, two of the best in the business.

  • Free Prediction: KC -7

Chiefs vs Eagles Prediction: MoneyLine

Again, it is tough not to bet with the Chiefs in this matchup. A stat that jumps off the page is just the overall improvement from this Chiefs offensive line, due in large to the addition of rookie Creed Humphrey. The 63rd pick in this past NFL draft has been exceptional, only allowing one pressure this whole season accompanied by no sacks.

For the Eagles to pull off the upset wideouts, DeVonta Smith and Jalen Reagor will have to help their quarterback out. They are currently 30th in the league with only one dropped pass, so that trend will have to continue. Every opportunity to score on this team has to be converted.

  • Free Prediction: KC (-310)

Chiefs vs Eagles Prediction: Total


This game should go over, especially with the eagles presumably playing from behind all game. Although the Eagle’s defense is top 10 in the league when it comes to opponents passing yards per game, it doesn’t really apply to the Chiefs.

  • Free Prediction: Over (-105)

Prop Predictions

  • Jalen Hurts passing yards Over 235.5 (-108)

As I have been saying throughout this whole prediction, This game will be high scoring. The Eagles will be forced to throw playing behind, making Hurts a prime candidate for a big game.

  • Miles Sanders receiving yards Over 19.5 (-108)

You can almost count on a couple of screen passes getting called for Sanders, an excellent receiving back. Barring a catastrophe, he should be able to accumulate 20 yards quickly.

  • Kansas City Chiefs winning the fourth quarter (-152)

Staying consistent with the rest of the article, Mahomes and the chiefs should not have any problems scoring. If this game is anywhere close to entering the fourth, expect them to pour it on late.
