    New England Patriots (-180) vs. Philadelphia Eagles (+150)

    My Team's Next MatchNew England Patriots

    Everybody loves an underdog and it is hard not to be inspired by Nick Foles’ rise to the top after nearly deciding to leave the NFL all together three years ago. The Philadelphia Eagles’ quarterback was playing in St. Louis at the time, where he struggled following early success in his career.

    In my heart at the time, I was probably going to step away from the game,” Foles told reporters this week. “But I also knew that being in that situation that I had to take a few days just to let all of the emotions settle.”

    Fast-forward three years, Foles’ career has come full circle as he will lead the Philadelphia Eagles — the team he broke into the league with — into the Super Bowl to face the defending champ New England Patriots on Feb. 4. The game is slated for 6:30 p.m. kickoff and can be viewed on NBC.

    Both clubs finished the regular season with identical 13-3 records and both are 12-6 against the spread going into the Super Bowl. However, it’s Tom Brady and the Pats that go into the NFL final as the -180 moneyline favourites after staging a remarkable rally in the AFC Championship against the Jacksonville Jaguars. The line has moved as more bettors are putting their money down on Foles and Eagles, who come in as the intriguing +150 underdogs.

    The Patriots opened as -215 favourites and Eagles at +193 and the closer we get to the Super Bowl, the more we could see some changes to the lines. These two clubs don’t face each other very often.


    In fact, the last time the Patriots and Eagles clashed was in December 2015, when Philadelphia walked away with a 35-28 victory in Foxborough — not the easiest of places to outscore the Patriots. New England does have the advantage in the last six meetings between the two clubs, as the Pats hold a 4-2 record head-to-head against the Eagles during that span.

    Looking at some trends heading into the Super Bowl, New England is 5-0 straight up in its last 5 games. More importantly, the defending champs are 4-1 SU in its last 5 games when playing Philadelphia. The key factor for the Patriots will be Tom Brady and Rob Gronkowski — the team’s biggest offensive pieces. Both Brady (hand) and Gronkowski (concussion) are recovering from injuries, but will they be able to perform at a high level?

    Philadelphia had the fourth-best defence in the NFL in 2017, holding opponents to 306.5 yards per game. The Eagles allowed 295 points against this season, which also ranked fourth in the entire league. If the old saying defence wins championships stands true, the Eagles are in great position to win their first Super Bowl since 1960.

    The Eagles are 5-1 straight up in their last six road games. The NFC champs have also gone 14-2 SU in their last 16 games. This will be a tight game that won’t produce many touchdowns, but Philadelphia’s defence is what will be the deciding factor in the end.
