Super Bowl Odds: Latest Point Spread, Moneyline, Prop Bets and Popular Picks for Patriots vs. Eagles

As has long been the case, the New England Patriots are expected to win the Super Bowl on Sunday. But as the game approaches, the line on the victory has tightened.

On Friday afternoon, the Patriots were 4.5-point favorites over the Eagles, according to Odds Shark. That's down from an opening line of six points. The Pats being favored is likely largely a function of the dynastic New England team—led, as ever, by quarterback Tom Brady and coach Bill Belichick—facing off against a Philadelphia squad heading into the Super Bowl with back-up quarterback Nick Foles. (Starter Carson Wentz was hurt in December.)

Odds Shark put New England's best moneyline at -190, meaning you'd have to bet $190 to make $100 with a Patriots win. The best Philly moneyline, meanwhile, was +175, meaning a $100 bet would garner $175 in profit should the Eagles win Super Bowl LII.

The consensus over/under was 48, meaning that would be the total points scored in the game. Betting the over had -120 odds, according to Odds Shark, while the under was +100. 

According to Odds Shark, the average predicted score is 29.3-16.9, in favor of New England. Similarly, some 72 percent of ESPN's experts picked the Patriots to win the big game. Of it 57 writers, editors, analysts, columnists and pundits polled, 41 picked predicted the Pats would win their sixth Lombardi Trophy.
