2018 Super Bowl Online Betting
Can The Eagles Get The Job Done This Time Around? Did you know that this Sunday’s Super Bowl game between the Philadelphia Eagles and New England Patriots is a rematch of the 2004 Super Bowl where the Patriots defeated the Eagles? Bettors who took the Pats got it right, can they get it right again in Super Bowl 52 on Sunday, February 4th, 2018 at U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis, Minnesota?
Before this season, the Philadelphia Eagles had been to two Super Bowls, but came away empty both times. If you plan to bet real money on this year’s Super Bowl then pay attention. When it comes to 2018 Super Bowl online betting you need to realize that the Pats will be without Rob Gronkowski and that the Eagles defense knows Tom Brady inside and out. The current point spread has the Patriots as -4.5 favorites over the Eagles.
In 1980, the Eagles were embarrassed by the Oakland Raiders 27-10 in a game that got out of hand very quickly.
In 2004, the Eagles lost to the New England Patriots, who they will be facing in this year’s Super Bowl, in what was one of the most exciting Super Bowl games of all time.
The Eagles and Patriots traded touchdowns for three quarters, and Adam Vinatieri put the Patriots on top for good with a 22 yard field goal with eight minutes left in the game.
Terrell Owens, who came back from a leg injury that was supposed to be season ending, had one of the best performances in Super Bowl history, finishing with nine catches for 122 yards.
Donovan McNabb tried to lead the team to a comeback victory, but he was intercepted by Rodney Harrison with nine seconds left in the game, allowing the Patriots to win the game.
This year, the Eagles will try to defeat the Patriots and win their first Super Bowl, but they will have to do it without starting quarterback Carson Wentz, who suffered a season ending injury in week 14.
The Eagles have a very solid defense with a great pass rush, so they should be able to get some pressure on Tom Brady. But like the 2004 team, they don’t have a dominant running game, which could be a problem.
When it comes to receivers, the Eagles have a much better core than they did in 2004, which should make moving the ball a lot easier this time around.
At the quarterback position, Foles isn’t McNabb or Wentz, but he has proven to be up to the task and has a lot of experience as a starter, so he shouldn’t be intimidated by the gravity of the game. If he can play like he did against the Minnesota Vikings last week, the Eagles will have a very good chance to get their first Super Bowl win.
