Point spread steadily moving Philly’s way as bets come in on the Eagles

The Patriots were favored by a touchdown in Super Bowl LII when the point spreads first posted, but that’s no longer the case.

Bets have consistently come in on the Eagles, and the point spread has steadily moved Philadelphia’s way. At all the Nevada sports books, New England is now favored by 4 or 4.5 points.

Nevada casinos have taken in more than twice as much money on Eagles bets than on Patriots bets. That would mean that if the Eagles manage to pull the upset, or keep the game within four points, a lot of bettors will make big money and casinos will lose money.

However, it’s also possible that late money will come in on the Patriots, especially if it’s confirmed, as expected, that Rob Gronkowski is cleared to play. By kickoff, the money bet on both teams could be close to even. But as of right now, the majority of the money is on the Eagles.

  1. 4 points? I own two paid for houses (one’s a ‘home’).

    I’ll gladly put up the 2nd house for the Patriots (worth 600k). Gamblers all end up losing it all because they ‘have’ to gamble. The whole it’s a disease thing. Just a matter of time. Seen it time and time again,

    But smart investing is a different thing. 4 points with Foles vs Brady? I’ll take that investment.

  2. PS: You always get 3 points for being at home. The Patriots -1 at Philly, -4 in Minny or -7 in Foxboro?

    I’ll take any one of them. But since the Eagles and fans are in for a rough time considering what a few of the bad ones did in Philly, I might lean to the -4.

  3. Foles had 2 consecutive games where he looked good. That’s not the real him. The real him will show up Sunday. I would bet the house on the Pats.

  4. Everyone hates the Patriots and they’re betting with their hearts, not with their heads. I mean, I wouldn’t be shocked to see the Eagles win but no way in hell would I bet money on Nick Foles over Tom Brady. That’s just not a smart bet.

    New England fans will be sad come Monday morning.

    New England fans have heard that a lot over the years. More often than not from someone that was nowhere to be found on most of those Monday mornings.

  6. This is the NFL

    Anything is possible.

    All Pats fans know that too – just like all Pats fans know that every Super Bowl (including the ones they lost) were Super Close

    So no reason not to think this one will be too. These are the two best teams in football. It’s rare there’s a Super Bowl blow out. That’s why Atlanta’s near blow out leading 28-3 was such a surprise. But then again, even that turned out pretty close in the end 😉
