Super Bowl 52 Betting Picks: CBS Experts

Dion Lewis Rushing Yards

  • Over 50½ -120
  • Under 50½ +100
Lewis rushed for 62 yards in the divisional round against Tennessee but was held to just 34 yards in the AFC Championship against Jacksonville, making the Under 50.5 yards against Philly’s stout defense the pick here!

Brandin Cooks Receiving Yards

  • Over 67½ -110
  • Under 67½ -110
Cooks averaged 67.6 yards per game during the regular season but has dropped slightly to 66.0 yards per game in both of New England’s playoff games this postseason. I’m feeling like he’s going to reach the 68-yard mark in Super Bowl 52, although it’s apparently going to be very close!

Rob Gronkowski Pass Receptions

  • Over 5 -130
  • Under 5 +110
Gronk caught six passes against the Titans in the divisional round, but just one in the AFC Championship after suffering a concussion. Gronkowski averaged 4.9 receptions per game this season and has a career postseason average of an identical 4.9 catches per game so, I’m going to say play the Under.

Tom Brady Passing Yards

  • Over 294½ -110
  • Under 294½ -110
Jacksonville held Brady to 290 passing yards in the AFC Championship. Simply put, if Philly’s defense plays anywhere near what they’ve shown the last four weeks, Brady will not pass for 295 yards in Super Bowl 52.

Devin McCourty Solo+Assisted Tackles Over/Under 5??

Seventh-year defensive back Devin McCourty averaged 5.2 solo and assisted tackles during the regular season and have an average of 5.0 through New England’s two playoff games this postseason and a career postseason average of just 4.2 per game. Play the Under people!

New England 3rd Down Conversions Made

  • Over 11½ +120
  • Under 11½ -140
New England averaged 5.1 per game third down conversions per game this season With two really solid defenses going, clearly, the Under is the pick for New England in Super Bowl 52, although I guess it should be noted that the Patriots gave up a ton of yardage between the 20-yard lines this season.The offense is one of the reasons why the Pats come in as the Super Bowl LII Odds favorite.

4th downs

  • Either team converts a 4th down -235
  • No 4th down conversions in game +195
New England converted a modest 13 fourth downs for an average of 0.8 per game. While there’s a slim chance either team will go for it on fourth down, I can actually see it happening under the right circumstances.

Patriots Total Points

  • NE scores 15-21 points+365
  • Any other result -460
After watching Tom Brady and company get held to a modest 24 points against Jacksonville in the AFC Championship, I think it’s quite possible they get held to 21 in Super Bowl 52.

Player to Score First Patriots Touchdown

  • Rob Gronkowski +350
  • Dion Lewis +400
  • Brandin Cooks +600
  • Rex Burkhead +600
  • James White +650
  • Chris Hogan +700
  • Danny Amendola +750
Running back James White scored first for New England in their divisional round win over Tennessee and did so again in their AFC Championship victory over Jacksonville. Philadelphia also gave up its first postseason score to running back Devonta Freeman and its only other touchdown allowed to Vikings tight end Kyle Rudolph, so there’s that. Maybe it’s me, but I see no reason to not pick him again. Despite the Super Bowl LII Odds, I’m going with White to score first again for the Patriots.Super Bowl 52 Prop Bets Pick: James White
