The Best and Worst Super Bowl 52 Props to Bet On

New England Patriots Super Bowl 52 Money Line

Since the New England Patriots are in as the favorite for Super Bowl 52, we should probably start with them. Their money line odds for the big game have been set at -190, which is a number that may mean nothing to some of you who do not wager very often. What this essentially means is that you get $10 back for every $19 that you wager on the Patriots. If they win the Super Bowl and you had $100 on them, you would see a profit of $52.63, which is not a bad return for a favorite. So, why bet on the Patriots straight up? The obvious answer here is that they have a great deal more experience in the Super Bowl than the Eagles, and they actually beat Philly the last time they met in the big game, although Tom Brady may well be the only carryover from that one. Over the last 3 seasons, the Patriots have the best SU record in the NFL, winning 45 of the 55 games that they played, including the playoffs. Super Bowl 52 is played on a neutral venue, so let’s count that as an away game for both teams. In that case, the Patriots would still be 19-5 SU over the last 3 seasons. As a favorite, the Patriots are 42-10 during that stretch, which means they won close to 81% of their games as the betting odds favorite.

Philadelphia Eagles Super Bowl 52 Money Line

If you are a fan of playing the underdog, then you are likely to be pleased with the money line odds that are in place for the Philadelphia Eagles. They are currently sitting at odds of +160, which means that you would make a solid $160 profit on a $100 wager if the Eagles were able to spring the upset in Super Bowl 52. It’s worth remembering that potentially winning more does not necessarily make it a good bet, but let’s take a close look at the Eagles of the last 3 seasons. Once again, the NFC Champions come in as the Super Bowl 52 Betting underdog. Philadelphia does have a winning record over the past 3 seasons, going 28-21 in that period. Again, since this game is a neutral venue, we are going to count it as an away game, and things do not look quite so bright there for Philly, as they went just 11-13 in games away from home over the past 3 years. As the underdog during that time, the Eagles were a little hit and miss, going 11-11 SU. Taking all of this into account, my Super Bowl 52 betting money will be on the New England Patriots at -190.
