NFL – 2018 Super Bowl Preview, Best Bets, and Promotions

super-bowl-2018 NFL - 2018 Super Bowl Preview, Best Bets, and Promotions

2018 Super Bowl

Super Bowl LII will be played between the New England Patriots and Philadelphia Eagles in Minnesota on February 5.

The Patriots are comfortable favourites as they look to go back to back after winning last season. The Eagles are the underdogs but won’t mind that after winning two straight playoff games with that tag.

Head to Head

Since 1999, the Patriots are 4-2 against the Eagles. They last met in 2015 and the Eagles did beat the Patriots 35-28 at Gillette Stadium. They have met in a Super Bowl and the Patriots won that by 3 points in 2005.

Line/Handicap

The Patriots are 5 point favourites in the line betting markets for the Super Bowl. They have covered this line in 10 of their last 12 games. But they’re 2-7 ATS when playing the Eagles. The Eagles will be confident of beating the line as they’re 2-0 ATS in the playoffs. They’re also 11-4 ATS in their last 15 games.

Best bet: Eagles +5 at William Hill ($1.95)

Total Points

In this matchup, the over total is 4-1 and the winning team has scored 30+ in the last 3 meetings. Both teams are strong in the passing game and we’ll be expecting points to flow. For the Patriots, Tom Brady is in fine form for this game. He has thrown 5 touchdown passes in this playoff series and hasn’t been picked off. Gronk will be back from a concussion and he’ll enjoy facing a middle of the road passing defence. While for the Eagles, Nick Foles dominated the Vikings in the air and should be able to take advantage of a poor Patriots pass defence. So we’ll be backing the over total.

Best bet: Over 48 points at William Hill ($1.94)

First Touchdown Scorer

R. Gronkowski ($7.50)- Gronk was knocked out of the game last time out and will be looking to dominate this game. He’s so hard to cover and Brady will look to him near the endzone.

D. Lewis ($9.50) – Lewis will likely only score a touchdown from long distance as he hasn’t crossed the endzone in this postseason.

J. White ($10) – White is a darkhorse for the First Touchdown Scorer as he scored 2 in the last Super Bowl victory. Best value bet.

Z. Ertz ($10) – Ertz hasn’t scored a touchdown in the playoffs so he’s overvalued.

J. Ajayi ($11) – Ajayi will likely lose carries to Blount near the endzone so he’s not a great bet here.

L. Blount ($14) – Blount is a former Patriot and is a master at finding the endzone. He’s massive value at $14.

Best bet: James White at William Hill ($10)

2018 Super Bowl Prediction

This figures to be another close Super Bowl. The Patriots are obviously the experienced team with 8 Super Bowl appearances in the Brady era. But they weren’t at their best against the Jaguars and the Eagles can rattle him with their pass rush. The difference will be whether Nick Foles can find open receivers once again. He played arguably his best game of his career against the Vikings and will need the same against the Patriots. But in the end, it’s just hard to back against Brady and this team. They have Super Bowl experience and if they fall behind again this year, we have full faith in Brady leading his side to victory.

Best bet: Patriots WIN $1.48
