NFL Exacta’s provide Eagles fans with a new way to bet on a Super Bowl win
The NFL playoffs have arrived, and this weekend will be one of observations for Eagles fans. While the wild card round rages on, the Birds can sleep peacefully knowing they own homefield advantage and the #1 seed. Their road to the Super Bowl is a simpler one and the odds are already confirmed, but what if there was a way to enhance them?
As things stand, the Philadelphia Eagles are +550 to win the Super Bowl, meaning a $100 bet nets a $650 return. But if you can predict who they will beat in the Super Bowl, just look at how much the odds jump!
|Kansas City Chiefs||+1300|
|Los Angeles Chargers||+4800|
Realistically, the Eagles are going to face either the Bills, Bengals, or Chiefs in the Super Bowl, provided they do win the NFC Championship. There is a chance we see a Doug Pederson miracle run in Jacksonville, or a limping Los Angeles Chargers can get hot, but the odds would suggest it will be one of these two teams.
So say you were going to bet $100 on the Eagles to win the Super Bowl at +550. Why not do $50 on a +1300 Chiefs, or a +2200 Bengals. $50 on the Eagles to beat the Bengals would return over $1,000, and against the Chiefs, a return of over $600. It’s a way to give yourself more upside without really adding too much risk to your wagers.
What about if you thought the Eagles were going to get to the Super Bowl but fall at the final hurdle? The same rule applies. The Eagles are +175 to win the NFC Championship, but if you can pick who they’d fall to, the odds sky-rocket:
|Kansas City Chiefs||+1100|
|Los Angeles Chargers||+5000|
Instead of betting the Eagles to win the NFC Championship for what is a minuscule return, you can 10x that by deciding which team would beat them in the Super Bowl. For this kind of bet, it makes far more sense to use an exacta rather than just betting that the Eagles will make an appearance.
