5 most likely Super Bowl 52 matchups according to Vegas oddsmakers
We’re officially in the final third 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, Los Angeles Rams, 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, Rams, Saints, or Vikings.
With the big game a little more than two months away, here is a look at the five most likely Super Bowl 52 matchups, according to MyBookie.ag.
Los Angeles Rams vs. Pittsburgh Steelers (+1100)
The fact that the Rams are on this list at all speaks volumes to the job Sean McVay has done in his first year as the Rams’ head coach. Los Angeles is currently 8-3 and has a very real chance at landing one of the top-two seeds in the NFC.
The Steelers are currently 9-2 and have won six-straight games.
Atlanta Falcons vs. New England Patriots (+1100)
This potential matchup would be a treat for NFL fans. It would be a rematch of Super Bowl 51, which was arguably the most exciting Super Bowl of all time, and it would feature two of the best quarterbacks in the game (Tom Brady and Matt Ryan).
Minnesota Vikings vs. New England Patriots (+800)
The Vikings (9-2) continue to win, despite their lingering questions at quarterback, and the Patriots remain the team to beat in the AFC.
On a side note, if this matchup were to come to fruition, the Vikings would be the first team in NFL history to play a Super Bowl in their home stadium.
Philadelphia Eagles vs. Pittsburgh Steelers (+600)
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 (+400)
Right now, the Eagles and the Patriots are the two best teams in the NFL without question. 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 13.
