Super Bowl LII Final Roundup: Time for Bettors to Make Their Call

Super Bowl LII Final Roundup: Time for Bettors to Make Their Call
It’s D-Day in the National Football League and one team will be crowned Super Bowl champions when all is said and done. Will the New England Patriots walk away with a second straight Vince Lombardi Trophy and sixth Super Bowl title in franchise history? Or will quarterback Nick Foles have enough weapons in his arsenal to lead the Eagles to the Promised Land? We look at the odds and betting lines on the final day heading into Super Bowl 52.

It’s the last day for bettors to get their wagers in and time is running out. The lines haven’t changed much, but that doesn’t necessarily mean they won’t prior to opening kickoff at 6:30 p.m. EST. The game will be aired on NBC. Let’s break down the latest odds and betting lines with mere hours remaining before the New England Patriots and Philadelphia Eagles take the field at U.S. Bank Stadium for Super Bowl 52. Odds are courtesy of Sports Interaction.

Moneyline

moneyline

Both of these teams finished with identical 13-3 records in the regular season and both the Pats and Eagles match up nicely on paper. However, New England has something Philadelphia does not — five-time Super Bowl champion quarterback Tom Brady. The future hall of famer, who is seeking a sixth ring, leads the Patriots into the Super Bowl as -180 favourites.

Brady led the league in passing yards and is looking to become the first QB in NFL history to accomplish that feat and win the championship in the same season. The Patriots are 5-0 straight up in their last 5 games and hold a 4-1 SU record in their last 5 games when playing the Eagles. Philadelphia, which is an enticing +150 underdog, has also had success SU, going 14-2 in its last 16 games. The Eagles are also 5-1 SU in its last 6 games on the road.

Point Spread

spread

Much like the moneyline odds, the point spread betting lines for Super Bowl 52 have not moved much in the final week going into the championship game.

The Patriots, who opened as the 6½ favourites, are now frontrunners to win by 4½. But the defending champions’ obvious struggled against the spread against the Eagles have been magnified for bettors, who have yet to back the Patriots on the point spread. The Eagles own a 7-2 record ATS in their last 9 games when playing New England. Is 4 ½ points insurmountable? Not by any stretch of the imagination.

However, Philadelphia’s ATS success versus the Patriots certainly cannot be ignored. The Eagles are also 11-4 against the spread in their last 15 games. In comparison, the Patriots have gone 10-2 ATS in their last 12.

Total Points

total

Of all the odds and betting lines, the total points projection is the one bettors have been struggling with heading into Super Bowl 52. Sports Interaction has set raised the projected total points mark to 49 — up half a point from 48.5 two days before Super Bowl 52. The issue is both of these clubs have been potent offensively, but both have also been strong defensive clubs in the process.

Will the Super Bowl be a low-scoring affair or will the Patriots and Eagles trade touchdowns in a track meet? The Eagles have been involved in 15 OVER outcomes in their last 20 games on the road. However, the total has gone UNDER in 6 of their last 9. Five of New England’s last 7 games have resulted in UNDER outcomes. Take the under in what will likely be a low scoring Super Bowl.

Super Bowl Pick: Philadelphia Eagles (+150, +4½)
