Super Bowl LII: Patriots vs Eagles Odds, Prop Bets Guide


super bowl lii

The Super Bowl LII match-up is set and once again it includes the New England Patriots, who have become the National Football League’s Hulk Hogan of sorts. If you watched/followed WWE in the late 1980s-early 1990s, it was called WWF back then, then you remember Hulk Hogan being the guy that seemingly always won, despite how much it seemed that he was going to lose the whole time.

The Patriots certainly have that sort of feel these days, especially so in yesterday’s AFC Championship win over the Jacksonville Jaguars and last year’s Super Bowl triumph over the Atlanta Falcons.

Naturally, the Patriots are favored in Super Bowl LII, and by 5 points according to the odds at SBG Global sportsbook. They have the money line as Eagles +184, with the Patriots -220. The over/under is set at 48. However, that’s just your basic essentials when it comes to Super Bowl LII wagering, the meat and potatoes if you will. You also have the next level bets that you see in many football games, relating to anything and everything from the pre-game coin toss to the MVP.

Of course, this is the Super Bowl so there is naturally another level of prop bets beyond all that which cover events and properties that border on the obscure. Some of these relate to topics that are minutia, some relate to major societal issues right now, and others, just focus on Super Bowl LII gambling in general- how meta!


Obviously, we didn’t have the time and space to get into all of the Super Bowl LII prop bets out there, but here are some of the more interesting ones that we came across.
