Creed III star Michael B. Jordan reveals his pick for Super Bowl LVII showdown
The Super Bowl matchup is set: The Kansas City Chiefs will face off against the Philadelphia Eagles. It should be an incredible matchup between two of the league's best quarterbacks and deepest teams.
"Creed III" star and director Michael B. Jordan stopped by the First Take studio to discuss his upcoming movie as well as other events in the sports world, an area Jordan is a big fan of.
The matchup was just confirmed last night, but the star actor already has his prediction ready:
"I'm gonna say the Chiefs are taking it. I’ll say 21-27."
The "Black Panther" star believes Patrick Mahomes and company will be able to edge out Jalen Hurts' squad for his second Super Bowl win.
Jordan's directorial debut, the third film in the "Creed" franchise (which is a spin-off franchise from the Rocky movies), is set to be released in early March. The synopsis reads:
"Still dominating the boxing world, Adonis Creed is thriving in his career and family life. When Damian, a childhood friend and former boxing prodigy resurfaces after serving time in prison, he's eager to prove that he deserves his shot in the ring.
"The face-off between former friends is more than just a fight. To settle the score, Adonis must put his future on the line to battle Damian -- a fighter who has nothing to lose."
Before that comes out, Jordan's attention will likely be on whether or not his prediction comes true.
Will Michael B. Jordan's Super Bowl prediction come true?
Right now, the odds for this year's Super Bowl disagree with Michael B. Jordan. The odds currently have the Eagles favored ever so slightly. They're 1.5-point favorites after opening as slight underdogs.
The odds will likely change a few times before the matchup arrives, but Jordan's six-point loss doesn't seem as likely.
Additionally, both of these teams feature incredible offenses. They led the league in points per game, with Kansas City scoring 29.1 and the Eagles putting in 28.6 per game.
Despite the Eagles boasting a strong defense and the Chiefs just throttling Joe Burrow's Cincinnati Bengals (two interceptions), the offenses figure to take stage. Will it be Jalen Hurts or Patrick Mahomes taking the trophy home?
