Super Bowl 52

Good evening everyone.  This is it boys and girls.   One game left.  Thank you for following along again over the course of this football season.  This blog had been viewed a total of 11,185 times before the season began, and that number is now at 15,561.  Speaking of numbers, our little group was all over the Patriots/Jaguars score last week.  The final was Patriots 24  Jaguars 20.  Joey had the Pats winning 28-20, Pete had the final being 24-21 (he just had the teams reversed), and I had the Jaguars winning 27-23.  I'm just saying, if that Jaguars fumble return wasn't blown dead, the Jags would have had a 27-10 lead early in the fourth quarter...   ;)  My thanks go out to Joey and Pete for again providing me with their favorite weekly bets.  Joey has been a great friend to me, and Pete has been a great brother.  Before we reveal our predictions, let me once again remind you that our picks are for entertainment purposes only.  Sunday, February 4th, Super Bowl 52, matching New England and Philadelphia.  Here we go...  


Joey's Parlay Card (Last Week 1-3/Overall 37-41-2)

Eagles 31  Patriots 24 - Eagles (+4.5)/Over 48

Ok.  It’s the final game of the football season.  The line opened at 6 and has dropped to Patriots -4.5.  Normally I bet against this line drop and would take patriots, but I still think the Eagles have the best offensive line in football, and the defense has stepped up with the loss of Carson Wentz.  As long as Nick Foles doesn’t make a big mistake, the Eagles win this game.  That’s all for this football season.  Come by the Palace Station sports book to watch the Big Game, and may all your parleys cash



Joey and Pete gave me their scores on the same day, and they're scary close to each other.  This would be a good time to remind you that Pete picked the EXACT SCORE of last year's Super Bowl...


Pete's Parlay Card (Last Week 2-2/Overall 23-54-3)

Eagles 34  Patriots 31 - Eagles (+4.5)/Over 48


Joey and Pete both have the Eagles pulling off the upset outright, with the score flying over the total.  I see a little lower-scoring game, and...


Coach's Parlay Card (Last Week 1-3)/Overall 40-38-2)

Eagles 24  Patriots 23 - Eagles (+4.5)/Under 48 - If the Patriots don't have the good fortune of the aforementioned Jacksonville fumble return being blown dead, I don't think they'd even be in this game, but alas, here they are.  The Eagles were not supposed to be here after Carson Wentz went down to injury, but alas, here they are.  The Eagles defense has slammed the door shut on the Falcons and the Vikings, and I think they'll help keep this game under the total.  Philly has been an underdog since the moment Wentz was injured, and while the Patriots continued to lead a charmed postseason life last Sunday, I think the Eagles will find a way to grind out their first Super Bowl victory...


And that's all my friends.  I've got one joke for you before we say goodbye...

Q:  Where do Superman's goldfish live?
A:  In the SUPER BOWL...

Feel free to wear that one out, because I'll be using it all weekend at work.  :)  Have a great Super Bowl Weekend everyone!!!
