12 February 2023, Sunday
The much-anticipated Super Bowl matchup between the Philadelphia Eagles and Kansas City Chiefs is just around the corner. Here are some facts to familiarize yourself with in preparation for Sunday's game:

How can I tune in?
Tune in at 6:30 p.m. EST on Sunday to catch the game on Fox, Fox Deportes and the NFL+ app. Streaming is another great way to view the Super Bowl, with YouTube TV providing the service. The national radio broadcast is available on Westwood One.

The Kansas City Chiefs are heading to the Super Bowl for the third time in four years following their AFC Championship victory. Just last season, the Chiefs managed to take home the Lombardi Trophy by beating the San Francisco 49ers in Super Bowl 54, although they fell short against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2020.

Pat Mahomes, the quarterback who has recently been honored with his second MVP title, leads the team with the support of stars like tight end Travis Kelce and defensive lineman Chris Jones.

The Philadelphia Eagles have their sights set on another Super Bowl win after claiming the NFC Championship. Led by QB and MVP finalist Jalen Hurts, wide receivers A.J. Brown and DeVonta Smith, and linebacker Haason Reddick, the Eagles are hoping to make history in their bid to secure a second Super Bowl victory in six years.

The most difficult part for Rihanna was deciding the setlist when putting together her 13-minute performance. Despite this challenge, she managed to make the show a celebration of her catalogue. The singer, who recently welcomed her first child along with rapper A$AP Rocky, has achieved great success having accumulated 14 No. 1 Billboard Hot 100 hits, such as "We Found Love," "Work," "Umbrella" and "Disturbia".

State Farm Stadium, located in Glendale, Arizona and home to the Arizona Cardinals of the NFL, will be the host of the upcoming Super Bowl. Glendale is situated in the Phoenix area. 

This stadium has before been featured in the Super Bowl, making it the third time. The Phoenix area is not unfamiliar with major events as this week it is playing host to two high profile celebrations: the Super Bowl and the WM Phoenix Open which is seeing spectators come from all over for the renowned Rory McElroy and other golfers.

The Brooklyn Nets sent shockwaves throughout the NBA when they traded superstar Kevin Durant to the Phoenix Suns on Wednesday. The acquisition has excited Suns fans and energized the city.

The Eagles have been the 1 1/2 point favorites over the Chiefs for the past two weeks, according to FanDuel Sportsbook. The over-under is currently set at 50.5 points.

In addition to the traditional bet on which team will win, gamblers can also bet on a variety of props. From team and individual player performance, to the number of total points scored, there are many different angles to consider when betting on this game.

Sportsbooks have capitalized on the growing trend of prop bets, which could include anything from if there is a safety to which team between the Chiefs or Eagles will score more points than NBA players LeBron James or Steph Curry when both teams face off the day before the game.

Professional gamblers tend to favor the more conventional wagers and look for an edge when it comes to the props if they think they can come across a number they will be able to exploit. These types of bets are more of a consideration for the general public.

At Thursday night's NFL Honors show, Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes took home his second MVP award, with Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott scooping up the NFL's Walter Payton Man of the Year. Buffalo Bills safety Damar Hamlin also gave a special tribute to those who had made it possible for him to be given a second chance.

Hamlin made his return to the stage approximately one month after suffering a cardiac arrest and having to be resuscitated while on the field in Cincinnati.
