Super Bowl 52 Odds: The Case for and Against the Patriots
Are the Patriots favoured for good reason? Yes. Are the invincible? Absolutely not. This team can lose and Brady is human-ish. The Eagles didn’t get here as part of the Make a Wish foundation, they have earned their place and our respect. Today we’re going to make a case for the Pats winning and losing.
The Case For The Pats
Where to begin. If you know anything about football, one shouldn’t have to make much of a case for you to bet on the New England Patriots. This has just never been a bad bet since the turn of the century.
You need only go back a week to see that Tom Brady is an ageless mutant with powers that none of us can really understand. He orchestrated another trademark come from behind win against the poor, poor, Jacksonville Jaguars. You felt bad for Jacksonville, but it wasn’t a Cinderella Story. It was Wreck-it Ralph, where the bad guy wins. And Brady did it without his favorite option, Rob Gronkowski.
So Touchdown Tommy is feeling good and confident, which is always terrible news for the rest of the NFL. He’s also enjoyed 2 weeks off, which is a good amount of time to tend to his injured hand.
And speaking of Rob Gronkowski. He missed last week’s historic comeback and last year’s Super Bowl. He’s also been 100% cleared to play and is going to come out all fired up to play in this game. Look for him to be straight-up beastly this Sunday.
The offense is well-documented and always the Patriots’ calling card. The Pats scored 28.6 points a game, good enough for second in the NFL behind the Rams. They may not have had the best offense on paper, but they still had the most feared offense on the field. It’s not just their weapons. It’s that their weapons seem to have a nitrous boost that they can flick when they need to, which we seemed to see in last week’s comeback.
Then there is their criminally underrated defense. We’re talking about a D that has only given up an average of 14 points over their last 4 games, all of them wins.
The Case Against
Nick Foles has been the man they needed, but they need even more now. He was fantastic against the Vikings going 26/33 for 352 yards, 3 passing TDs, and zero picks. But, the Vikings are not the Patriots, and the AFC Championship is not the Super Bowl.
They will take whatever they can get out of him, especially in the early part of the game while the team is nervous as hell.
If you’re betting on the Eagles, you’re betting on them for their defence. The Eagles D only gave up 18.4 points a game in the regular season, and has only given up 17 total points in the playoffs this year.
And as good as they were defensively, they were really average defending against the pass in the regular season. However, they did force the 4th most interceptions in the NFL with 19 in the regular season.
