We’ve officially reached the home stretch of the 2017 NFL season, and we now have a pretty good idea as to which teams have a legitimate chance at winning Super Bowl 52.
Among the five Super Bowl front-runners heading into Week 12 according to the Vegas oddsmakers are a couple of usual suspects — the New England Patriots and Pittsburgh Steelers — and a couple of surprise teams — the Philadelphia Eagles, Minnesota Vikings, and New Orleans Saints.
The oddsmakers took their Super Bowl forecasting a step further, releasing odds on the most likely matchups for Super Bowl 52. Based on what they came up with, it’s clear they expect the 2017 Lombardi Trophy to go to the Patriots, Steelers, Eagles, Saints, or Vikings.
With the big game a little more than three months away, here is a look at the five most likely Super Bowl 52 matchups, according to MyBookie.ag.
New Orleans Saints vs. Pittsburgh Steelers (+1300)
After getting off to an 0-2 start, the Saints have reeled off eight-straight wins and look like a force to be reckoned with in the NFC. The Steelers on the other hand, look like a team that is peaking just at the right time.
Minnesota Vikings vs. New England Patriots (+1000)
The Vikings have emerged as one of the unquestioned best teams in the NFC, despite their ongoing uncertainty at the quarterback position, while the Patriots continue to be the Patriots.
New Orleans Saints vs. New England Patriots (+900)
Drew Brees vs. Tom Brady in Super Bowl 52? What more could NFL fans ask for?
Philadelphia Eagles vs. Pittsburgh Steelers (+650)
This potential all-Pennsylvania matchup would likely be one of the most-hyped Super Bowls of all time. The Eagles are still looking for their first Lombardi Trophy, while the Steelers have the most Super Bowl titles in league history with six.
Philadelphia Eagles vs. New England Patriots (+450)
Right now, the Eagles and the Patriots are the two best teams in the NFL. With the way both teams are currently playing, it’s easy to see why the oddsmakers have this as the most likely matchup for Super Bowl 52 going into Week 9.
