New England Patriots vs Philadelphia Eagles – Super Bowl 2018: On a re-edition of the Super Bowl XXXIX where the Patriots have beaten the Eagles by 24-21
This is a much closer match-up than many people initially predicted it to be. Both teams ended with a 13-3 record.

Both teams are amongst the 10 top teams in terms of volatility.
The Patriots have a clear advantage in terms of quarterback, although Nick Foles has played superbly last week against the Vikings.
The Patriots started out as a 7-points favourites but now that line has dropped to 4, since people are starting to understand that the Eagles have a solid shot at getting the win here.
How can they do it? New England is 20th in the league at stopping the runs. The Eagles should be able to move the ball, but the key will be understanding if they can take advantage of the opportunities they will have on the red zone.
They are close to top in the league in terms of red zone conversion, while New England’s defence is one of the spiciest on that same red zone.
New England Patriots vs Philadelphia Eagles – Betting Tip and Prediction:
Another key for them to win will be putting heavy pressure on Tom Brady, which is completely possible, because the Eagles lead the NFL in terms of pressuring the quarterback.
If the Eagles can win the battle for possession and put pressure on Brady, they might just be able to win their first Super Bowl.
It won’t be that big of a surprise if the Eagles win here.
