Eagles Vs Patriots Super Bowl 52 Over/Under Pick

Super Bowl 52 is set with the New England Patriots battling the Philadelphia Eagles. Kick-off is scheduled for 6:30 PM ET on Sunday, February 4 at the U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis, MN.

The Las Vegas oddsmakers have listed the Super Bowl 52 game total at 48-points when the New England Patriots battles the Philadelphia Eagles. Now should you bet the over or the under in Super Bowl 52? Let’s find out.

Philadelphia Eagles Vs New England Patriots Super Bowl 52 Over/Under Pick

In the regular season, the Patriots had an 11-5 record against the spread and a 7-9 record against the over/under. The Eagles had a 10-6 record against the spread with an 8-8 record against the over/under.

Philadelphia Eagles (15-3) vs. New England Patriots (15-3) 
When: Sunday, February 4, 2018 at 6:30 PM ET 
Where: U.S. Bank Stadium, Minneapolis, MN
Spread: New England -4
Over/Under: 48.5 
TV: NBC
Stream: NBC Sports Live

Bet on Over 48.5 because…

Both the Philadelphia Eagles and New England Patriots are high-scoring teams. Both the Eagles and Pats average 28.6 points per game. That ranks third in the NFL. If those betting trends hold people who bet the over have an 8-point buffer. I like those odds.

Bet on Under 48.5 because…

Both defenses are rock solid and have played lights out during the playoffs. The Philly D has given up a total of 17 points in their two playoff games this season while the New England D has given up 34.

For season long betting stats, the Patriots’ D allows 18.5 points per game while the Eagles’ D gives up 18.4. That ranks them 5th and 4th respectively.

Eagles Vs New England Super Bowl 52 Over/Under Pick

There’s a chance both teams move the ball a ton, but neither team scores a lot of points, right? I don’t think so. The Patriots are plenty good enough to score 24 to 30 points in this game.

The Eagles? Philly could be good for close to 40 points in this game. Sounds crazy, but I just don’t feel that either team’s defense is set up to stop the other team’s offense.

The Patriots are a much better rushing team than people give them credit for being. Dion Lewis is a good running back. Not only that, but any issues QB Tom Brady had with his wrist will be long gone by Feb. 4. That means Brady should have no trouble slinging it all over the field.

Philly’s got a couple of excellent running backs in LeGarrette Blount and Jay Ajayi. Plus, QB Nick Foles has settled down. He made no mistakes versus Atlanta’s surging defense in the Divisional Round. He took apart Minnesota’s top-ranked defense in the NFC Championship.

Also, let’s be honest, there’s no way Doug Pederson at Philadelphia and Josh McDaniel at New England don’t figure out how to exploit the other squads’ D in two weeks? Yeah, right!

Both teams should score at will with Philadelphia’s better overall defense being the difference.  In any case, I am betting the over.

  • Tom Brady shown during Anthem -900
    Tom Brady not shown during Anthem +500

    Of course the league is going to show its ‘Golden Boy’ standing proud during the national anthem with his hand over his heart!
  • Either team 4 straight scores +255
    No team 4 straight scores -310

    No team is scoring four straight times in Super Bowl 52.
  • PHI scores a safety +1600
    PHI no safety scored -3200

    The likelihood of a safety is highly, highly, improbable.
  • Any kickoff return for TD +1400
    No kickoff return for TD -2500

    The likelihood of a kickoff return for a touchdown isn’t as low as a safety, but both teams have solid special teams, so no, it’s not happening.
  • A missed extra point kick +265
    No missed extra point kick -325

    Stephen Gostkowski and Jake Elliott are both excellent kickers. Not gonna’ happen!
  • Onside kick successfully recovered +775
    No onside kick recovered or attempted -1200

    Again, both, the Patriots and Eagles have heady special teams and will likely be on high alert for some trick special teams play! The likelihood of a onside kick recovery is almost non-existent.
  • Carson Wentz mentioned over 3?? times -245
    Carson Wentz mentioned under 3?? times +175

    Carson Wentz is a star in the making and I expect the Eagles franchise signal-caller to be mentioned at least four or five times.
  • Al & Cris say "Gronk" over 3?? times -390
    Al & Cris say "Gronk" under 3?? times +270

    The super repetitive Al Michaels and Cris Collinsworth will combine to say “Gronk” at least five times, probably in the first half!
  • A. Michaels or C. Collinsworth say "Rocky" +165
    Neither say "Rocky" during broadcast -215

    Seriously? How can you ‘not’ say Rocky when you’re broadcasting an Eagles game?
  • Al or Cris say "City of Brotherly Love" +160
    Neither say "City of Brotherly Love" -210

    Again, it’s a given that one or both of the NFL announcers says the term. "City of Brotherly Love" during the Super Bowl 52 broadcast!

Why Bet Against New England To Win Super Bowl 52

Why Bet Against New England To Win Super Bowl 52

Tom Brady and the New England Patriots are favored to win back-to-back Super Bowl titles when they take on Nick Foles and the Philadelphia Eagles in Super Bowl 52 this coming weekend. However, there’s one big piece of history that says Brady and company aren’t going to win Super Bowl 52 and you need to know all about it!

Should You Bet Against The Patriots To Win The Super Bowl 52

Philadelphia Eagles (15-3) vs. New England Patriots (15-3) 
When: Sunday, February 4, 2018 at 6:30 PM ET 
Where: U.S. Bank Stadium, Minneapolis, MN
Spread: New England -4.5
Over/Under: 48.5 
TV: NBC
Stream: NBC Sports Live

While Brady is arguably the greatest quarterback in NFL history and a surefire first-ballot Hall of Famer, no quarterback has ever won the Super Bowl in the same season they led the NFL in passing yardage – and you guessed it – Brady did just that this season.

Brady led the NFL with 4,577 passing yards this season and no player, in five chances, has ever won the Super Bowl in that same season. Peyton Manning, Brady, Rich Gannon, Kurt Warner and Dan Marino all lost in the Super Bowl after leading NFL in passing yards.

Can Brady Look Break 51-Year Quarterback Curse?

It’s a bit mind-boggling, but again, no quarterback has ever led the NFL in passing yards and won the Super Bowl that same season. While Manning led the league in passing yards three times, when he won the title in 2006 Drew Brees led the league with 4,418 yards. When he won his second title in 2015, Brees again led the league in passing with 4,870.

Speaking of Brees, while he’s led the league in passing a whopping seven times, he didn’t lead the league in passing in 2009 when his New Orleans Saints won the Super Bowl. That dubious distinction went to Matt Schaub.

Since 1966, the NFL’s passing leader has only made it to the NFL title tilt a total of five times. That list of losing quarterbacks includes Brady, who led the NFL in passing yards in 2007, when the Patriots went 16-0, but ended up losing to Eli Manning and the New York 17-14 in Super Bowl 42.

Brady led the NFL in passing with 4,577 yards. This year actually marked the third time that Brady has led the NFL in passing and he’s 0-for-2 after the Pats failed to even reach the AFC Championship in 2005. In addition to the passing yards jinx, there’s also an MVP jinx. Since 2000, zero league MVP winners have won the Super Bowl. Of course, we don’t even know if Brady will win the league MVP award this year, but there’s that as well!

History, jinxes, ah, isn’t life grand?
