NFL Divisional Round Betting Odds and Predictions

The NFL Divisional Round is set to begin on Saturday, Jan 12 and NFL fans will be treated to four terrific games. The home teams are favored in each contest, with the biggest spread being just 8.0 points. Let’s take a look at the four divisional round games before picking a winner for each game.

Kansas City Chiefs -5.5 vs. Indianapolis Colts:

The AFC’s top overall seed, the Kansas City Chiefs, will host the upset-minded Indianapolis Colts on Saturday afternoon at Arrowhead Stadium. The Colts were able to reach this round by beating the Houston Texans in the Wild Card Round. There is no doubt that the Chiefs were the much better team during the regular season, but the Colts are red-hot. Kansas City has also had a rough past in terms of winning playoff games, and head coach Andy Reid will have a big monkey on his back in this game. The only way that the Colts will be able to stay in this game is if they get another huge game from their defense. Indianapolis allowed just seven points in their first playoff game, and rookie linebacker Darius Leonard is the leading tackler in the NFL. I think that this will be close for most of the game, but Patrick Mahomes is simply too good for the Chiefs. Mahomes threw for over 5,000 yards and 50 touchdowns during the regular season, and he will put on a show in his first ever playoff game. Bet the Kansas City Chiefs -5.5 over the Indianapolis Colts.

Los Angeles Rams -7.0 vs. Dallas Cowboys:

The Rams looked like the favorites to win the Super Bowl for much of the season, but then the month of December hit. Los Angeles lost two of their final four games of the season, and quarterback Jared Goff took a big step back. The Rams still have one of the best players in the NFL in running back Todd Gurley, who appears to be fully healthy for this game. Dallas meanwhile, won seven of their final eight games, and their offense is really starting to click. The Cowboys have played terrific defense all season, allowing just over 20 points per game, but they can now win on both sides of the ball. I’m still not completely sold on quarterback Dak Prescott, but running back Ezekiel Elliott is good enough to carry that offense. Elliott ran for over 130 yards in the Wild Card Round and should have a big game against a struggling Rams defense. The Rams will find a way to win this game, but it will be close. Take the points and bet on the Dallas Cowboys +7.0 in this game.

New England Patriots -4.0 vs. Los Angeles Chargers:

Tom Brady and the New England Patriots are looking to make another run to the Super Bowl. Standing in the Patriots way is Philip Rivers and the red-hot Los Angeles Chargers. Rivers is having the best season of his career, throwing for over 4,300 yards this season in leading the Chargers to a 12-4 record. Los Angeles has a ton of offensive weapons, most notably Melvin Gordon. Gordon ran for just 40 yards in the Wild Card Round, but he should be able to feast on a weak Patriots defense. The Chargers offense will be able to put up some points in this game. New England doesn’t look like the same team from a season ago, and there are plenty of holes in their game. The Patriots did go 8-0 at Foxboro Stadium during the regular season, but Tom Brady started to show some signs of age. It just feels like the Chargers are the much better team in this game, and they will go into Foxboro and take down Brady and the Patriots. Bet the Los Angeles Chargers +4.0 over the New England Patriots.

New Orleans Saints -8.0 vs. Philadelphia Eagles:

The defending champion Eagles just refuse to be eliminated and were able to survive against the Chicago Bears in the Wild Card Round. Nick Foles has now led the Eagles to four straight playoff victories but will face an extremely tough test this weekend. Drew Brees and the New Orleans Saints were almost unstoppable all season long on offense, and they are nearly impossible to beat at home. The Saints averaged over 31 points per game this season, and they should destroy an Eagles team that has struggled to defend the pass. The Eagles have had a terrific turnaround of late behind Foles, but there is a reason that they went just 9-7 during the regular season. Philadelphia lost by a score of 48-7 earlier this season, and this game likely won’t go much better. New Orleans has way too much offense for the Eagles, and they will get a comfortable win. Bet the New Orleans Saints -8.0 over the Philadelphia Eagles.

NFL Wildcard Round Betting Odds and Predictions

The Wild Card Round of the NFL Playoffs is set to kick off with a pair of games on both Saturday and Sunday. There are plenty of intriguing matchups and storylines, but all four home teams are favorites this weekend. Let’s preview each game before making a prediction for the winner in each matchup.

Houston Texans -1.5 vs. Indianapolis Colts:

Andrew Luck carried his Colts into the playoffs this season, and they will now take on AFC South rival, Houston Texans. These two teams split their two games during the regular season, and this should be an extremely competitive game. Indianapolis will try to use their quick-strike offense to beat the tough defense of the Houston Texans. J.J. Watt gets plenty of headlines in Houston, but the Texans have a deep and extremely talented defensive front. The Texans will do all that they can to get pressure on Luck in this game, but it won’t be easy. Indianapolis has a great offensive line, and Luck threw for over 4,500 yards behind that stellar group. The Colts beat the Texans in Houston, 24-21, just weeks ago, and they should be able to do it again. Picking road winners is always risky in the NFL playoffs, but the Colts are just playing too well right now. Bet the Indianapolis Colts +1.5 over the Houston Texans.

Dallas Cowboys -1.5 vs. Seattle Seahawks:

Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett will be looking for his second ever playoff win when his team hosts the Seattle Seahawks on Saturday night. This has all the makings of a defensive struggle, as the Cowboys and Seahawks both have terrific defenses. Dallas has been much better on offense since acquiring Amari Cooper, but the Cowboys are still averaging just 21.2 points per game. Running back Ezekiel Elliott ran for a league-high 1,434 yards during the regular season, but you can expect the Seattle defense to be ready for him. Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson has proven that he can lead his team to playoff wins, and he has had a terrific season. Wilson threw for just 193 yards per game this season, but the Seahawks have been running the ball like crazy. Dallas simply must win this game or Jerry Jones might lose his mind, and they will find a way to score just enough points to get it done. Bet the Dallas Cowboys -1.5 to beat the Seahawks at home in this game.

Baltimore Ravens -2.5 vs. Los Angeles Chargers:

The 12-4 Los Angeles Chargers will be on the road when they take on the 10-6 Baltimore Ravens in the Wild Card Round. Baltimore has been almost unbeatable since rookie Lamar Jackson took over the starting QB job, including 22-10 win over Los Angeles just two weeks ago. The Chargers feature one of the most balanced offenses in the league, with quarterback Philip Rivers leading the way. Los Angeles is expected to get tight end Hunter Henry back for this game, and running back Melvin Gordon is fully healthy as well. There is no doubt that the Chargers offense will be able to score some points against one of the top defenses in the NFL. Baltimore is averaging more than 150 rushing yards per game this season, and their offense does a great job of dominating time of possession. Lamar Jackson did a great job of getting the Ravens to the postseason, but things won’t be as easy for the rookie in the playoffs. Baltimore will be hard to beat at home, but the Chargers just have too many weapons. Take the points and bet the Los Angeles Chargers +2.5 over the Baltimore Ravens.

Chicago Bears -5.5 vs. Philadelphia Eagles:

The surprising Chicago Bears will host the defending champion Philadelphia Eagles in the final Wild Card Game on Sunday afternoon. Chicago has dominated opponents with their relentless defense all season long, while their offense has shown just enough to win games. On the flip side, the Eagles are lucky to be in the playoff field, but Nick Foles has them ready to make another run. The Bears allowed just 17.7 points this season and led the NFL in takeaways and defensive touchdowns. If Chicago is going to advance deep into the postseason, Khalil Mack is going to lead the way. Second-year quarterback Mitchell Trubisky threw for over 3,200 yards this season, but he still plenty of areas to improve. Philadelphia looks like a much better offense with Foles leading the way, and tight end Zach Ertz caught 116 passes during the regular season. The Eagles don’t have a star running back, and the lack of run game could play a huge role in this game. Chicago has just been too good on defense to pick against them to win the game, but the Eagles keep it close. Take the 5.5 points and bet the Philadelphia Eagles in this game on Sunday.

NFL Week 15 Betting Odds and Predictions

With just three weeks left in the NFL regular season, there are still plenty of playoff races still yet to be decided. There are a handful of key games on the Week 15 schedule that could help to determine the 2018 playoff field. Let’s take a look at the five best NFL games to bet on this weekend, with a prediction for each game.

Denver Broncos -3.0 vs. Cleveland Browns

The Broncos suffered a devastating blow to their playoff chances in week 14 with a loss to the San Francisco 49ers. Denver will likely need to win out and receive some help to sneak into the playoff field. Cleveland likely has no chance to make the 2018 playoffs, but they continue to show improvement, including a 26-20 victory over the Carolina Panthers in week 14. Baker Mayfield threw a touchdown pass in his 10th consecutive game in week 14, but the rookie will face a top defense in this game. The Broncos have allowed just over 21 points per game this season, and they have been even better at Mile High Stadium. The Broncos need a big win to keep their playoff hopes alive, and they will get it in this game. Bet the Denver Broncos -3.0 over the Cleveland Browns.

Buffalo Bills vs. Detroit Lions +2.5

It seems a little odd that the Bills are 2.5 point favorites in this game against the Detroit Lions. Buffalo comes in with two straight losses, and they feature the second-worst offense in the NFL. The Bills are averaging just 15.3 points per game, and their rookie quarterback has thrown for just over 150 yards per game. Detroit comes into this game after beating the Arizona Cardinals on the road by a score of 17-3. Quarterback Matthew Stafford has thrown for over 3,100 yards already this season, and wide receiver Kenny Golladay is nearing 1,000 receiving yards. Neither team is very good, but the Lions feel like the clear pick in this game. Take the points and bet the Detroit Lions +2.5 over the Buffalo Bills.

Chicago Bears -5.5 vs. Green Bay Packers

One of the oldest and best rivalries in football will take center stage at Soldier Field on Sunday. The Chicago Bears have been one of the best storylines in the league this season, and they have a chance to win the NFC North for the first time since 2010. Green Bay would love to spoil the party for the Bears, but they aren’t exactly playing great football this season. The Packers already fired head coach Mike McCarthy earlier this month, and they just don’t have the feel of a normal Packers team. Quarterback Aaron Rodgers has absolutely dominated the Bears during his career, but this time it will be different. Chicago is coming off of a game in which they gave up just 6 points to the Los Angeles Rams, and the defense will shut down Rodgers and company in this game. Bet the Chicago Bears -5.5 over the Green Bay Packers.

Los Angeles Rams vs. Philadelphia Eagles +9.5

The Rams will be featured on Sunday Night Football for the second week in a row and will be looking to erase the memory for a miserable week 14 loss. The Eagles, meanwhile, are fighting for their playoff life and a loss in this game would likely end their playoff hopes. Los Angeles still has one of the most feared offenses in the entire NFL, averaging 32.7 points per game. Running back Todd Gurley has already run for over 1,200 yards this season, and quarterback Jared Goff is closing in on 4,000 yards passing. Philadelphia looked much better in their week 14 loss to the Dallas Cowboys, but they are still looking for a more consistent offense. The Eagles are averaging just 21.6 points per game and will need to play well in this game. Philadelphia is a desperate team, and that should help them out in this game. The Rams should get a bounce-back win in this game, but it won’t be a double-digit game. Take the points and bet the Eagles +9.5.

Jacksonville Jaguars vs. Washington Redskins +7.0

The Jacksonville Jaguars will host the Washington Redskins in what will likely be a low scoring affair. Both teams will be starting backup quarterbacks, and both offenses have been horrible all season long. Cody Kessler will start for a Jacksonville team that is averaging just 16.3 points per game. The Jags have lost eight of their last nine games and are limping to the finish line. Washington hasn’t been much better under third-string quarterback Mark Sanchez. Sanchez has been forced into duty due to a pair of tough injuries to Washington quarterbacks. This game will be ugly, but it will also be close. The Jaguars should win the game, but giving any team seven points against that offense is just too many. Take the points and bet the Redskins +7.0.

NFL Week 14 Betting Odds and Predictions

The 2018 NFL season is entering the final stretch, but there are still many playoff races yet to be decided. Let’s take a look at the five best NFL games to bet on this weekend, and make a prediction for each game.

Green Bay Packers -4.5 vs. Atlanta Falcons

The Packers made headlines this week after firing longtime head coach Mike McCarthy. Green Bay brings a 4-7-1 record into this game, and they have been very disappointing this season. Atlanta has been even worse this season, posting a 4-8 record through their first 12 games. This game is a battle of two of the biggest disappointments in the NFL, but there should be plenty of offense in this game. Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers and Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan are two of the best in the business, and they will try to outduel each other. Expect the weather to be cold and snowy and that is Packers weather. Bet the Green Bay Packers -4.5 over the Atlanta Falcons.

Kansas City Chiefs -6.5 vs. Baltimore Ravens

The top team in the AFC will host a playoff hopeful in an important game in Kansas City. The 10-2 Chiefs will take on a Baltimore Ravens team that has won three straight games to get back into the playoff picture. Baltimore has looked like a different team since rookie Lamar Jackson has taken over the quarterback job. With Jackson in charge, the Ravens lead the league in rushing and time of possession. If the Ravens are able to keep the explosive Chiefs offense on the sideline for much of this game, they might be able to pull off their fourth straight win. Kansas City released running back Kareem Hunt before week 13, but still managed to score 40 points. As long as the Chiefs have Patrick Mahomes at quarterback, they will still score a ton of points. Bet the Chiefs -6.5 over the Baltimore Ravens.

Dallas Cowboys vs. Philadelphia Eagles +3.5

Perhaps the biggest game of the weekend will take place in Dallas when the Cowboys host the Philadelphia Eagles. The winner of this game will take over 1st place in the NFC East, and this is one of the best rivalries in football. The Cowboys have won four straight games to put themselves in a nice position, and they have been riding the legs of Ezekiel Elliott. The Cowboys running back has racked up 1,150 yards and six touchdowns this season. Dallas also features one of the top defenses in the NFL, giving up just 18.6 points per game. Philadelphia is averaging just 21.5 points per game this season, but they are starting to heat up at the right time. Newcomer Golden Tate had a big night in week 13, finishing with 7 catches for 85 yards and a touchdown in the win. The Eagles still have plenty of work to do to return to the playoffs this season, but they have the talent to get the job done. Look for Philadelphia to make a statement against the Cowboys in Dallas. Bet the Eagles +3.5 over the Cowboys in a huge NFC East clash.

Arizona Cardinals +2.5 vs. Detroit Lions

The Arizona Cardinals are fresh off of their third win of the season in a game that cost Mike McCarthy a job. The Cardinals have been a mess on offense all season long, averaging just 14.6 points per game. Against the Packers it was rookie running back Chase Edmunds who was the offensive star, scoring two touchdowns in his first career game at Lambeau Field. Arizona will take on another NFC North team, the Detroit Lions, in this game, and they could find the same success. Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford has thrown for over 3,000 yards again this season, but Detroit has been riddled with injuries this season. Playing at home should give the Cardinals an extra boost, and I think they get their second straight victory in this game. Bet the Arizona Cardinals +2.5 to beat the Detroit Lions on Sunday afternoon.

Seattle Seahawks vs. Minnesota Vikings +3.5

The Seattle Seahawks will host the Minnesota Vikings with a lot at stake in the NFC Playoff race. Seattle continues to be one of the hardest places to win on the road in the NFL, but the Vikings feature one of the most talented rosters in the league. Quarterback Kirk Cousins has thrown for over 3,400 yards in his first season with the Vikings, and will need to have a big game against the Seahawks. Minnesota has struggled running the ball this season, but should find success through the air. For Seattle, quarterback Russell Wilson has been sharp again this season, but running back Chris Carson has started to emerge as a star. Carson has ran for 704 yards and four touchdowns this season, but he faces a hungry Vikings defense in this game. The Seahawks are a small favorite in this game, but the Vikings will come away with the win. Bet the Minnesota Vikings +3.5 over the Seahawks on Monday night.

Updated Betting Odds to win Super Bowl 53

The 2018 National Football League season is in the preseason stage, where teams are preparing for the 16 game grind of the season. The updated betting odds have been released, and let’s take a look at some of the favorites to come away with the Super Bowl in February of 2019.

New England Patriots +650

The Patriots are the runaway favorites out of the AFC East. New England is still loaded with talent, and have one of the best quarterback/head coach combinations in the history of the National Football League. New England changes many parts of their team, but the core is still in tact and the team is still loaded. The Patriots are once again the favorites to win the Super Bowl, despite losing last season to the Eagles in the final game.

Philadelphia Eagles +850

The Eagles are the defending champions, and one of the teams with not many question marks coming into the season. The biggest question for Doug Pedersen’s group is their quarterback position. Will Nick Foles start the season or is Carson Wentz ready to take back over behind center? The Eagles are the huge favorites out of the NFC East, but if they do not watch it, teams like the Cowboys or Giants could sneak up on them.

Pittsburgh Steelers +1000

Many say this is the final run that the Steelers have in them. The core is aging, and talk about Le’Veon Bell going elsewhere is pretty popular. Antonio Brown is a little banged up in the preseason, and there are question marks throughout the roster. This is going to be a challenge for Mike Tomlin, but as the third favorite in the NFL, you never know what you will get from this squad. The Steelers should run away with the AFC North.

Los Angeles Rams +1100

Only behind the Eagles in the NFC – fans are pumped for the second season in Los Angeles. The Rams are loaded on offense, and their head coach is an offensive guru. Todd Gurley is a good choice for league MVP, especially after getting paid in the offseason. Aaron Donald is the big question mark for the Rams, as he does not appear to be starting the season on the roster. The Rams are a good value when you are betting on a Super Bowl 53 champion.

Minnesota Vikings +1100

The Vikings are a season removed from losing in the NFC title game. Remember that game last season where they came away with a miracle against the Saints? They will need more skill than luck this season. The Vikings are the favorites out of the NFC North, but Aaron Rodgers and the Packers are lurking just behind them. It will be a new Vikings offense with a new quarterback, but can the defense continue to be outstanding is the big question?

Green Bay Packers +1400

The Packers are the top team in the betting odds that are NOT favorites to win their division. The Packers are projected to finish behind the Minnesota Vikings in the NFC North. Can Aaron Rodgers regain some magic and lead his team to the Super Bowl again? Green Bay has plenty of challenges, but their biggest could be at receiver, where there are several new names in the mix for Rodgers to throw to.

New Orleans Saints +1800

Another NFC team in the mix. The favorite out of the NFC South, and still stinging coming off their divisional loss to the Vikings a season ago. The offense will face some challenges early, while the defense is the question mark the entire season. Look for the Saints to be in the mix. New Orleans is the favorite to win the NFC South.

Houston Texans +1800

If you are betting the Houston Texans you are putting many eggs in the same basket for a quarterback that missed last season. DeShaun Watson is talented, but is he able to come away with enough to get his team to the Super Bowl, or first things first win the AFC South. The Texans need to stay healthy, but that is the name of the game in the National Football League.

San Francisco 49ers +2000

The 49ers are fully ready for the Jimmy G full season. It will be interesting coming into the season for the 49ers as a team that has struggled in the division to be a favorite to reach a wildcard spot. The Rams and Seahawks appear to be obstacles for sure.

There is a look at the most recent betting odds to win Super Bowl 53. Best of luck with all your Super Bowl bets, and we hope you are able to cash some great bets when February of 2019 arrives. Enjoy the season!

NFL Betting: Top 5 Super Bowl Betting Odds Favorites

As the calendar has now shifted to July, NFL teams will be set to open up training camps later this month. The first regular season game will take place on September 6th, which is just under two months away. Last year’s Super Bowl was an absolute thriller that was won by the underdog Philadelphia Eagles. Super Bowl LIII will take place at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, Georgia. It’s never too early to start thinking about who will hoist the Lombardi Trophy next February. Let’s take a look at the top five favorites to win the Super Bowl this season.

New England Patriots +650

 It should come as no surprise that the New England Patriots are the early favorite to win Super Bowl LIII, even after falling to the Eagles last season. The Patriots still have the dynamic combination of Tom Brady and Bill Belichick, and they are always a top contender. One key for the Patriots will be keeping tight end, Rob Gronkowski, healthy for the entire 2018 season. New England made some great free agent signings and trades this offseason that should shore up some of their weaker areas. The Patriots signed cornerback, Stephon Gilmore, to a large contract this season, but he improves their defense greatly. The Patriots will need to find a way to replace the loss of both Brandin Cooks and Danny Amendola, but Belichick always seems to make things work out. New England will have a say in who wins the Super Bowl this year.

Philadelphia Eagles +850

The Philadelphia Eagles burst onto the scene last season, and rode the momentum all the way to a Super Bowl victory. The Eagles enjoyed playing the role of underdog last season, but now they are one of the favorites. Quarterback, Carson Wentz, is on schedule to return to the Eagles in time for the season opener, but Nick Foles remains as a viable backup option. Philadelphia made a few key moves this offseason that improved their chances of repeating. The Eagles signed veteran wide receiver, Mike Wallace, who will provide them play making capability. They also added Michael Bennett in a trade with the Seahawks, which will improve their defense. The Eagles play in a tough NFC East Division, but they appear to have the most talent in the NFC.

Pittsburgh Steelers +1000

The Pittsburgh Steelers had a rough end to their 2017 season when they were stunned by the Jacksonville Jaguars in the AFC Divisional Round. The Steelers defense was torched in that game, and gave up a whopping 45 points in the loss. Pittsburgh must find a way to improve on defense if they are going to contend in 2018. The Steelers will once again feature a potent offense with quarterback Ben Roethlisberger leading the way. The steady quarterback will also have his favorite weapon, Antonio Bryant, back with him for another season. Running back, Le’veon Bell, is the third All-Pro player on the offensive side of the ball for the steelers. Pittsburgh has the offensive tools needed to win, but the defense must play better.

Los Angeles Rams +1100

 No team in the National Football League has seen their odds to win the Super Bowl rise as much as the Los Angeles Rams. The Rams have had a terrific offseason, and are now seen as a real threat to the Philadelphia Eagles in the NFC. The Rams made great improvements last season, and were the highest scoring team in the NFL. Los Angeles made a total of six trades this offseason, but their biggest move occurred in free agency, when they signed defensive star, Ndamukong Suh. The Rams also tried to fix their defensive woes by bringing in cornerbacks, Aqib Talib, Marcus Peters, and Sam Shields. It is pretty clear that the Los Angeles Rams are going for it this season, and the talent on their roster might just be enough to win the Super Bowl.

Minnesota Vikings +1100

The biggest question for the Vikings this offseason was deciding which quarterback they were going to employ as their starter. Minnesota appeared to have capable quarterbacks on the roster, but brought in former Redskins’ quarterback, Kirk Cousins, this offseason. Cousins will now have the pressure of leading the Vikings back to the Super Bowl squarely on his shoulders. The Vikings also added a key piece on the defensive side of the ball by signing defensive end, Sheldon Richardson, as a free agent this winter. Minnesota is still looking to add a third receiver before training camp begins, but the Vikings are bringing a majority of the Division champion team back from 2017. Minnesota will have to find a way to get past the Packers again this season, but the Vikings are a team that should factor into the playoff mix in 2018.

Super Bowl Sunday Features the New England Patriots as Favorites over Philadelphia Eagles

The big game. The biggest game in all of United States sports will take place this Sunday. Super Bowl Sunday, and the game will take place in Minneapolis Minnesota – the home of the Vikings. Super Bowl Sunday will feature the top two teams in the league all during the regular season. The AFC team will feature the defending champion New England Patriots. The Patriots took care of the Tennessee Titans and Jacksonville Jaguars to get to this game, while the Philadelphia Eagles downed the Atlanta Falcons and New Orleans Saints. The New England Patriots are looking for back to back Super Bowl titles, and are the favorites in this game. The New England Patriots are -5 over the Philadelphia Eagles in Super Bowl 52 on Sunday.

BET ON THE SUPER BOWL AT PADDY POWER

Patriots Keep Winning

Bill Belichick and the New England Patriots are plenty used to getting to the big game. Remember last season – the Patriots were getting smoked by the Atlanta Falcons, trailing 28-3 – and they came from behind to win the game. The Patriots quarterback Tom Brady is seeking his 6th Super Bowl title. Brady is one of the candidates to be the Most Valuable Player during the regular season, and would love to cap it off with a postseason MVP award as well.

The quarterback threw for more than 4,500 yards in the regular season. New England during the postseason are scoring 29.5 points per game. That’s just a bit more than 28.6 points per game. Rob Gronkowski was the top target all season long for the Patriots, with nearly 1,100 yards and 8 touchdowns. The tight end is questionable for this game with concussion like symptoms, but is fully expected to play in the game.

The Patriots running game was anchored  most of the season by a combination of Dion Lewis, Rex Burkhead and James White. Lewis led the way with just under 900 yards on the season. New England started the season with 2 losses in their first four games. In those two losses to the Kansas City Chiefs and Carolina Panthers, they allowed 37.5 points per game. The Patriots defense finished the regular season ranked 5th in all of the league, as they allowed 18.5 per game.

Eagles Underdogs in Super Bowl 52

The winners of the NFC were the Philadelphia Eagles. The Eagles were underdogs in the divisional round against the Atlanta Falcons, despite being the top seed. Philadelphia came away with a 15-10 win in that game. Then – the Eagles were the underdogs in the NFC title game – and they blasted the Minnesota Vikings 38-7. The Eagles won the NFC East during the regular season by 4 games over the Dallas Cowboys.

Nick Foles started just three games in the regular season for the Eagles. Carson Wentz was on pace to be a MVP contender until he tore his ACL in a win over the Los Angeles Rams. Foles went 4-1 as a starter, with the lone loss coming in the regular season finale where starters sat for most of the game. The passing game for Philadelphia finished with more than 233 yards per game, while the running game was third in the league with 132.2 yards per game. The Eagles scored 28.6 points per game, and allowing opponents just 18.4.

The receiving core for the Philadelphia Eagles seems to go under appreciated. Alshon Jeffrey caught two touchdowns in the blowout win over the Vikings. The name that most will talk about is the tight end Zach Ertz. He caught 74 passes for 824 yards and 8 touchdowns during the season. Philadelphia led all teams in the NFL in touchdowns caught by tight ends. Philadelphia added Jay Ajayi during the season to go along with LeGarrette Blount as the dual running backs.

Super Bowl 52 Prediction

Best of luck with all your Super Bowl bets. Do not forget – get your bets in before the game, and make sure you check out all the great Super Bowl prop bets as well. When we make our final pick for the game – we are going to take the defending champions. The final bet for Super Bowl 52 is the New England Patriots -5 over the Philadelphia Eagles. Best of luck with all your US sports betting.
