Patriots vs Eagles
I gave up from NFL for a while, I mean on betting on it, not on watching it. Cause I was not able to pick good bets too often. But of course I won't miss this end of the season, of course I have bet for the Super bowl and I will share my opinion.
So, New England Patriots against Philadelphia Eagles. Clearly we can find good strong reasons to support betting on either side here. Firstly Eagles, really all credits for them. They have been the best team in regular season but near to end of RS, they have remained without it's first quarterback. And then there were many doubts how successful they would be in postseason without Carson Wentz. But they have been successful, they reached this Super bowl. Their backup quarterback Nick Foles gave his best. But not just he, Eagles' defense was amazing during entire season (they ranked 4th in NFL by fewest yards allowed).
But how you can go against New England when they have the best QB in the league in face of Tom Brady who by many is also considered to be the best ever? Also how you can go against the team who have the best coach in face of Bill Belichick? How you can go against the team who has the best ATS overall record counting last who knows how many years?
Brady is so able to create the plays in crucial moments, in last minutes and that's why we should never underestimate the Patriots. Just get back on previous Super bowl and amazing 19:0 final quarter comeback and later victory in OT for Patriots. So, huge experience and quality is on the side of the Patriots. But I think the Eagles can put them on big test.
At the end I have opted for one not so common bet. It's a first quarter line. I will stick to the fact that Tom Brady in these Super bowls somehow always starts a little bit slower but he rules late in the game.
Namely in this Belichick era and even seven Superbowls, the bet against the Patriots in the first quarter turned out to be the winning choice. What more, in all of those seven, the Patriots never scored in first quarter, not even a field goal.
I strongly believe this could be the winning bet also in Super bowl 2018. The Eagles relying on strong defense. IMO they will find solutions for Brady early in the game, I'm just not so sure for later on.
Pinnacle is offering 1.81 for +0.5 on Philadelphia Eagles in the first period. I will gladly take this even I expect from the Patriots to this time have some points early. Expected result at the end of first quarter: New England Patriots 3:7 Philadelphia Eagles. Good Luck.
