Super Bowl LII Betting: Philadelphia Eagles Team Preview

The New England Patriots will face the Philadelphia Eagles in Super Bowl LII in a little over a week.

"We've got a game to play", coach Doug Pederson said, "and it's not a vacation next week". He'll make $56,000 if the Patriots lose in the Super Bowl, giving him a minimum payout of $135,000, but will receive $112,000 if the Patriots win it.

Either way, one of these two teams is going to be the next Super Bowl champion.

Much like with their own dominant tight end, New England's big focus is on Philadelphia's tight end Zach Ertz.

For Giants fans, it's a memory that will last forever, and every late January and early February, it's something that will always be brought up. But for now, let's take a look at five bold predictions surrounding the Eagles for Super Bowl LII against the Patriots.

If Gronk returns, you've got to like New England's chances.

During the preseason, Johnson said he will "give out beer to everybody" if Philadelphia wins the Super Bowl. Even the referees are part of the menu, as bettors can wager on total penalties for the Eagles (over/under: 6.5) and Patriots (5.5), as well as total penalty yardage.

"We got one more to go", he said.

It's not quite so easy against the Patriots, however, because they have a knack for drawing penalties at opportune times, McLeod said. "I'm sure they didn't expect us to be here, either". Fans hope that he'll be able to play in the Super Bowl after suffering a concussion in the AFC championship game against the Jacksonville Jaguars. Tom Brady is obviously an extremely special football player and one of the best all-time. "I'm a supporter of the guys that play for the team and want to be there".

"I've never taken anything like this for granted, and I think we're all very fortunate to be in this game", he said.

Given the attention paid to Gronkowski, Hasselbeck believes that it will be the outside receivers that puts New England over the top come Sunday, with the likes of Brandin Cooks and Chris Hogan playing a key role in the Patriots' gameplan. "The company told NJ Advance media that, ".in the interest of not jinxing the team, we will keep our plans under wraps until the outcome of the Super Bowl is determined.
