Philadelphia vs. New England- NFL Super Bowl LII Game Preview and Pick

VietBet Pointspread: New England -4.5

VietBet Total Line: 48

 

The last game of the NFL season could be one of the best with the underdog Philadelphia Eagles taking on the defending champion New England Patriots in Super Bowl LII this Sunday in a 6:30 p.m. start at US Bank Stadium on NBC.

 

Philadelphia vs. New England Game Preview

 

The Eagles have relished the role of underdog in previous playoff victories against Atlanta and Minnesota both straight-up and against the spread at VietBet in their quest to get back to their first Super Bowl since losing the New England in the 2004 season. Philadelphia has gone 15-3 SU in its first 18 games this season with a 12-6 record ATS. It is 4-2 ATS in six games when closing as an underdog.

 

Nick Foles asserted himself as this team’s starting quarterback in place of an injured Carson Wentz with an almost flawless performance against the Vikings in Philly’s 38-7 romp as a three-point home underdog in the NFC title game on Jan. 21. He will need another perfect outing this Sunday along with the help of a ground game that was third in the NFL in rushing yards per game (132.2).

 

New England was supposed to defend last season’s Super Bowl title as the top favorite on VietBet’s NFL futures board before this year’s campaign even got underway. The Patriots went 13-3 SU in the regular season while covering ATS in 10 of their last 12 games. They did fail to cover in a 24-20 victory against Jacksonville in the AFC Championship as eight-point home favorites; however New England is a matching 15-3 SU this season with a 12-6 record ATS. The total has stayed UNDER in 10 of those 18 games.

 

It does not matter if his team is leading by double figures or trailing by 10 points or more, you know that Patriots’ quarterback Tom Brady can always find a way to get this offense into the end zone at a moments notice. He was able to erase a 28-3 deficit against the Falcons in Super Bowl LI and he brought his team back from 10 points down against the Jaguars with two fourth-quarter scoring strikes to punch the ticket to this season’s title game.

 

Philadelphia vs. New England Free Game Prediction

 

This ‘David vs. Goliath’ showdown is just too close to call in my book given the current 4.5-point spread at VietBet, but my confidence level in betting the OVER 48 points in his game is sky high in what should be another great shootout in a Super Bowl.
