|Under 48.5 points Best Bet||10/11|
Partiots The Clear Favourites For The Win
After a tough start to the regular season, the Patriots have virtually swept all before them since, and head to Minnesota full of confidence They produced a stunning comeback in the AFC Championship game to beat the Jags, and memories are still fresh in the mind of their remarkable victory against the Falcons in Super Bowl 51.
Tom Brady will also have use of his favourite weapon after it was announced Rob Gronkowski was out of the concussion protocol, with the big tight end tipped for a massive game.
The Eagles have had a sensational season, picking up the NFC East, and smashing through the play-offs in remarkably comfortable fashion. Star QB Carson Wentz picked up a season ending injury during the regular campaign but back-up Nick Foles has so far confounded the critics and kept Philly on track.
Foles was sensational as the Eagles swept past the Vikings to claim the NFC Championship, but he will need to be at least as good again if they are to take down Bill Belichick and the Pats.
Experience is likely to be a massive factor and that is reflected in the betting with New England the 4.5 point favourites at 10/11 with Paddy Power to claim the win.
Under 48.5 Points Looks The Best Bet
If there is a defence designed to stop Tom Brady then it is the Eagles with their ability to put pressure on opposition QBs 2nd to none in the League.
That should give them a chance of winning their first ring but we have seen the Pats look on the edge of defeat countless times in the big matches, only to come back and claim the win under pressure. The presence of Gronk is massive for Brady and the legendary tight end could well be the main target over the middle, which means that backing him to score two or more touchdowns is a great prop bet at 13/2 with Paddy Power.
These are two teams with excellent defences and that could mean we are in for a cagey game overall. The Eagles have allowed an average of 17.3 points a game this season whilst the Pats are not far behind on 18.3 which means means we can look at the total points market. The 48.5 points line seems a little high and backing under that at 10/11 with Bet Victor looks the best bet.
