Both the Philadelphia Eagles and Buffalo Bills find themselves at the top of odds boards as Super Bowl favorites.  

The Eagles and Bills were in two of the marquee games over the weekend, and both came out victorious. The Eagles topped the rival Dallas Cowboys 26-17 to remain the only unbeaten team in the league at 6-0, while the Bills recorded a 24-20 dramatic comeback win over the Kansas City Chiefs.  

Here’s a breakdown of their NFL odds.

Buffalo Bills +290 to Win the Super Bowl

Arrowhead Stadium had been a place of heartbreak for the Bills. They came up one game short of the Super Bowl in 2020, losing 38-24 in Kansas City. Then there was the 2021 debacle. With 13 seconds left and a three-point lead, Buffalo allowed Kansas City to drive down and score the game-tying field goal. The Chiefs then won the toss in overtime and scored the game-winning touchdown with Patrick Mahomes finding Travis Kelce. 

But on Sunday, it was the Bills with the late-game heroics.  

Buffalo’s Josh Allen orchestrated a 12-play, 78-yard scoring drive that saw Allen hurdling a defender for a 16-yard gain and a perfect pass to Dawson Knox for a 14-yard touchdown and a 24-20 lead. 

"There were still some bad memories from this place last year, so it was nice to wipe those from our minds,"  Knox said. 

Still, Mahomes had just over a minute with a chance to replicate the heroics he’s known for. But Mahomes was picked off by Skyy Moore to deny the Chiefs another comeback victory.  

In addition to the Bills being favored at +290 to win it all on FanDuel Sportsbook, Allen remains one of the MVP favorites. He completed 27 of 40 passes for 329 yards and three touchdowns on Sunday. Allen is now just +150 to win MVP at FanDuel. 

"Nothing we did last year translates to what we're doing this year," Allen said. "What happened in the past, that's where it is. All we can do is focus on the next one. Today was the next one." 

Eagles +450 to Win the Super Bowl

Cooper Rush entered Sunday 5-0 as starting quarterback of the Cowboys. The Eagles were 5-0. Something had to give.  

But Rush appeared overwhelmed on the road in a rivalry game. He threw two interceptions in the first half that led to 10 Philadelphia points and later threw his third interception in a showing that quelled most of the QB drama with Dak Prescott set to return.  

Philadelphia has remained the lone unbeaten team in the league in large part to points off turnovers, where they rank second in the league and in second-quarter scoring. The Eagles outscored Dallas 20-3 to build the advantage they would need to hold onto. Philadelphia has not outscored opponents 112-27 in the second quarter this season. 

The Eagles are now +450 to win the Super Bowl, trailing only Buffalo. The last time they started 6-0 came in 2004 when they went on to win their first seven games before falling in the Super Bowl.  

Quarterback Jalen Hurts was efficient once again, completing 15 of 25 passes for 155 yards and two touchdowns. Similar to the Super Bowl odds board, he trails only Allen at +460 to win the MVP award.
