Why Bet The Eagles To Win The Super Bowl?
With the Super Bowl 52 odds against Nick Foles and the Eagles after upsetting the Falcons and Vikings to punch their Super Bowl ticket.
After squeaking past Atlanta 15-10 in the divisional round as 3-point underdogs in their playoff opener, the Birds ‘opened up a can of whup-ass’ on Minnesota in their stunning 38-7 NFC Championship blowout victory this past weekend to cover the chalk as 3-point home dogs. Foles passed for 352 yards with three touchdowns and no interceptions and the Eagles defense picked off Case Keenum twice while holding the Vikings to 70 rushing yards to get the win.
Why Bet The Patriots To Win The Super Bowl?
The Patriots did what they always do in their AFC Championship showdown against the upstart Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday, but they were unable to cover the NFL betting odds.
Despite trailing 14-3 at one point and 17-10 after three quarters, Brady and company managed to find their stride late by outscoring Jacksonville 14-3 in the final stanza to pick up a hard-fought 24-20 win in the AFC title tilt this past weekend. Brady passed for 290 yards with two touchdowns and no picks and the Patriots defense held Leonard Fournette to just 76 yards rushing while sacking Jags quarterback Blake Bortles three times in the win.
Eagles Vs Pats Super Bowl 52 Pick
For Super Bowl 52, I’m going to urge you to back the surprising Philadelphia Eagles to at least cover the chalk as a touchdown underdog. Philadelphia’s defense has looked absolutely spectacular in limiting the Falcons and Vikings to a combined 17 points in their pair of postseason games and I believe the Birds can at least limit Tom Brady and the Patriots from lighting up the scoreboard.
Right now, I’m thinking the spread for Super Bowl 52 should be a lot closer to a field goal than a touchdown and I believe Philly’s defense and the fact that New England hasn’t looked like an absolute ‘powerhouse’ this season, means the Eagles will cover the chalk, even if they end up losing to the Patriots.
