Underdog’s Luck

As previously stated, Foles and the Philadelphia Eagles (12-6 ATS) have not only covered the chalk twice as home underdogs this postseason, but they’ve obviously won outright both times to reach Super Bowl 52. First, Philly got past Atlanta 15-10 in a hard-fought defensive battle in the divisional round as a 3-point home underdog in their playoff opener, to cash in as the first top-seeded dog in the divisional round in NFL history. After shutting down the Falcons, Philly and Nick Foles in particular, completely blew the Vikings off the field in their 38-7 NFC championship win this past weekend to cash in as 3-point home dogs again. Now, after picking against the Birds in both matchups, I’m here to say that I believe it’s quite possible they could pull off the upset over Tom Brady and the perennially-powerful patriots in Super Bowl 52. First and foremost, Philly’s defense is playing out of their collective minds right now, having allowed just 17 points through two games against two pretty good offenses. Now, heading into Super Bowl 52, New England has to worry about Nick Foles and his increased confidence after he passed for 352 yards and three touchdowns with no interceptions against Minnesota. The Eagles come in as the Super Bowl 52 Betting underdog, but they are used to it. Not only that, but NFL betting buffs should have some confidence that the Eagles can get it done as well, seeing as how the high0flying Birds have gone an impressive 8-2 ATS in their last 10 games following an ATS win, 9-3 ATS in their last dozen games against a team with a winning record and a consistent 11-4 ATS in their last 15 games overall.

Latest Super Bowl 52 Betting Trends

  • Philadelphia is 11-4 ATS in its last 15 games
  • Philadelphia is 14-2 SU in its last 16 games
  • The total has gone UNDER in 6 of Philadelphia’s last 9 games
  • Philadelphia is 7-2 ATS in its last 9 games when playing New England
  • Philadelphia is 1-4 SU in its last 5 games when playing New England
  • The total has gone OVER in 4 of Philadelphia’s last 5 games when playing New England

Final Expert Analysis

I know the Eagles are an uninspiring 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games following a straight up win, but they way they’ve looked in their last two games makes me think that trend is now a complete afterthought. Another thing working in Philly’s favor is the fact that the underdog has covered the spread in four of the last six Super Bowls while New England has gone just 2-4 ATS in their six Super Bowl appearances. Oh, there’s also the fact that the NFC has won 26 Super Bowl while the AFC has claimed 25 titles.
