Super Bowl 52 Betting Pick Based on Past Performances

Written by on February 1, 2018

As a longtime handicapper and sports betting writer/analyst, I always say that taking a ‘look back’ is a great way to potentially predict the outcome of current or future sporting events. While looking back certainly doesn’t mean you’re guaranteed to cash in on your future wager, I’ve found that it does provide something of sustenance as far as ATS and O/U wagering is concerned, so I think it’s important to repeat the process before submitting a Super Bowl 52 betting ticket. Thanks to the expert Super Bowl betting information that you’re about to get on some of the recent Super Bowl matchups, you’re going to get some meaningful insight into just what could lie ahead for the quickly approaching matchup between the Philadelphia Eagles and New England Patriots. Okay, with all of that said, let’s get started.
