5 most likely Super Bowl 52 matchups according to Vegas oddsmakers
Among the five Super Bowl front-runners heading into Week 15 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, Saints, or Vikings.
With the big game less than two months away, here is a look at the five most likely Super Bowl 52 matchups, according to MyBookie.ag.
New Orleans vs. New England Patriots (+1100)
This potential matchup would be a treat for NFL fans. Both teams have high-powered offenses led by two of the greatest quarterbacks to ever play the game (Drew Brees and Tom Brady).
Philadelphia Eagles vs. Pittsburgh Steelers (+1000)
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.
Minnesota Vikings vs. Pittsburgh Steelers (+800)
The potential Super Bowl matchup would feature two of the most storied franchises in NFL history. The Steelers may have the best offense in the league right now, and with every passing week, the Vikings are proving themselves to be a legitimate championship-caliber team.
Minnesota Vikings vs. New England Patriots (+650)
The Vikings 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. New England Patriots (+600)
The Vegas oddsmakers have this as the most likely matchup for Super Bowl 52 going into Week 15, despite the season-ending injury to Philadelphia quarterback Carson Wentz. The Eagles have a very capable backup in Nick Foles, but their defense will have to carry them if they are going to make a deep postseason run.
