Super Bowl LII: Eagles backed to upset the Brady bunch in Minnesota
Minnesota is the location for Super Bowl LII between the New England Patriots and the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday.
This is a game between two teams at opposite ends of the NFL spectrum.
The Patriots have won five championship games in the last 20 years including last year against the Atlanta Falcons.
Bill Belichick’s side can etch their names into the history books at the weekend. A sixth Super Bowl victory would put them level with the Pittsburgh Steelers.
In their way are an Eagles side competing in only their third Super Bowl and their first since 2004.
Both sides finished the regular season with a 13-3 record before advancing past tricky tests in the playoffs.
The Pats are favourites on the Money Line at 1/2 to win a second successive championship.
You can back the Eagles at 7/4 to cause a minor upset and lift the Vince Lombardi Trophy for the first time.
It’s worth noting that the sides can barely be separated in the seasonal statistics.They were split by just a single point in terms of points scored and conceded, which suggests this could be a tight match.
The Eagles defence has been tough to break down in the playoffs, though, and could be a crucial factor on Sunday.
We like the look of Philadelphia Eagles to Win by a Margin of 1-6 Points at 16/5.
If the underdogs are to prevail, they’ll need to stem the influence of the legendary Tom Brady.
The 40-year-old is looking for his sixth championship ring alongside coach Belichick. Brady has won the MVP award in four of his seven previous finals and is 7/10 to do so again.
However, he could be upstaged by the re-emergence of Eagles QB Nick Foles.
The ex-Rams man has really stepped up to the plate since the injury to first-choice Carson Wentz. He delivered 352 yards and three touchdowns to see off the Minnesota Vikings in the AFC Championship game.
You can back him at 7/2 to be the Super Bowl MVP.
Foles’ also has a burgeoning partnership with the Eagles’ top receiver this season.
