In the first week of August, the 2018 NFL Preseason begins. That means we’re on the precipice of another excellent NFL Regular Season. Some things have changed. For example, the league appears to have put the not standing for the flag controversy behind them. Some things haven’t changed at all, though. One of the things that hasn’t changed is that Super Bowl LIII is expected to be a repeat, at least in regards to the teams playing, of Super Bowl LII. This past February the Philadelphia Eagles beat the New England Patriots 41 to 33. It was an upset, but it wasn’t a huge upset. Look what’s happened, so far, during the offseason? The betting dollars are going to both the New England Patriots and the Philadelphia Eagles to win Super Bowl LIII.
Super Bowl 2019 Futures Point to Eagles vs Patriots…AgainThe Patriots entered last season as a chalky +350 choice to win Super Bowl LII. New England had come off a Super Bowl LI victory over the Atlanta Falcons. If anything, New England was expected to be better last season than they were in the 2016 NFL Season. It didn’t pan out for the Patriots. But, based on the odds the Pats aren’t a lock to win Super Bowl 53. In fact, heading into training camps in July, the Eagles may have garnered more betting dollars than the Patriots. Here are the odds for both teams:
- New England Patriots +400
- Philadelphia Eagles +750
