7 Reasons Why the Eagles Should Be Your Super Bowl LII Betting Pick

Super Bowl 52 Over/Under Total: 48

The first thing you need to know before betting on the Super Bowl 52 Over/Under total is that the Over/Under has gone 26-24 in all 51 Super Bowls with an O/U total. If you didn’t know, the Super Bowl I matchup between Green Bay and Kansas City way back in 1967 when I rode the bus to school (I’m old, but I’m just kidding, jeez) is that there was no total for that inaugural championship title tilt. Another couple of fast Over/Under facts to keep in mind is that the Over is 4-0-1 in the last five Super Bowls and 6-3-1 in the last 10 Super Bowls overall.

New England Patriots Total Points: 27

The Patriots averaged finished second in scoring by averaging 28.6 points per game and they’ve put 59 points on the board in two playoff games this postseason (29.5 ppg). However, Philadelphia’s defense has been nothing short of outstanding in limiting Atlanta to 10 points and Minnesota to just a touchdown (8.5 ppg). Hell, the Eagles haven’t allowed more than 10 points in each of their last four games, so, New England could be hard-pressed to score against an Eagles defense that ranks fourth in points allowed 918.4 ppg). Of course, Tom Brady is a better quarterback than Matt Ryan and Case Keenum, probably put together, so there’s that! Still, I’m thinking the Pats get held to just under 27. Super Bowl 52 Betting Pick: Under 27 Total Points

Philadelphia Eagles Total Points: 21

After scoring just 15 points in their playoff opener against the Falcons, Nick Foles and the Eagles’ offense opened up a can of whup-ass on Minnesota’s league-leading defense, so that means they could put some points on the board against a Patriots defense that finished fifth in points allowed (18.5 ppg), but one that gave up 20 points to Jacksonville in the AFC championship after giving up 14 to Tennessee in the divisional round. The Eagles come in as the Super Bowl 52 Betting underdog. The Eagles averaged 28.6 points per game (third) and I just don’t see them getting held to less than 21! Super Bowl 52 Betting Pick: Over 21 Total Points

Total Points

  • Odd
  • Even
Each of the last three Super Bowls and seven of the last nine overall have ended on an even number! That’s pretty damned consistent, which is why I’m going with an odd number this year! Super Bowl 52 Betting Pick: Odd

First Half Total: 24

Analysis: So, the first half total has been under 24 total points in five of the last 10 Super Bowl while finishing exactly on 24 points on two other occasions including last year’s Super Bowl 51 matchup between New England and Atlanta. That makes seven of the last 10 Super Bowls at or below 24 total points at the half. With the way Philly’s defense is playing right now, I like the Under 24 total points for Super Bowl 52. Super Bowl Betting Pick: Under 24 Total Points
