Super Bowl LII Expert Picks and Predictions 2018

The Pro Bowl is over, which means we’re in the final turn towards the season’s finish line that is the Super Bowl. It is now serious. No more fun and games for the NFL. It’s all about winning the coveted Vince Lombardi Trophy and nothing else. Read on for some of the hottest betting trends for Super Bowl LII along with which team the experts are forecasting to win it on Feb. 4.

What to Know About the Super Bowl 52 Match-up:

Philadelphia Eagles vs. New England Patriots

About the Philadelphia Eagles:

The Eagles like being the underdogs in these playoffs. Check that.  They are loving and fully embracing that tag. Although the Eagles have finished the regular season with the NFC’s best record, the absence of Carson Wentz under center has produced plenty of Eagles naysayers. But you know what? None of them have been right so far, as the Eagles have earned back-to-back wins as underdogs against the Atlanta Falcons and the Minnesota Vikings. Will they make it three in a row against the Patriots?

  • 5-1 SU/3-3 ATS in their last six games overall.
  • 5-5 SU/ATS in their last 10 postseason games.
  • 8-2 ATS in their last 10 games as postseason underdogs.
  • Nick Foles has yet to commit a turnover in the postseason, and his playoffs quarterback rating is at an insane 122.1.
  • Running back LeGarrette Blount and defensive lineman Chris Long have was with the Patriots last year when New England won Super Bowl LI.

About the New England Patriots:

The idea of reaching the Super Bowl makes Tom Brady and Bill Belichick yawn. The feat has just become so normal to them, as though making it to the grand stage of football is as automatic for them as 30-yard field goal from Stephen Gostkowski. Then again, they have been upset before in the Super Bowl. Will they avoid suffering the same fate against the Eagles?

  • 9-1 SU/8-2 ATS in their last 10 games overall.
  • 9-1 SU/7-3 ATS in their last 10 postseason games.
  • 9-1 SU/8-2 ATS in their last 10 games overall as favorites.
  • Tight end Rob Gronkowski suffered a concussion in the AFC Championships Game against the Jacksonville Jaguars, but will have two weeks to clear concussion protocol.
  • New England is averaging 29.5 points and 317.5 total yards per game in this playoffs.
