Philadelphia Eagles 10-1 to swoop for second Super Bowl success

New England Patriots favourites to win next season

Head coach Doug Pederson won the Super Bowl in his second season with Philadelphia
1 of 4

Philadelphia upset favourites New England in a scintillating Super Bowl LII in Minnesota but the impressive Eagles are 10-1 shots to swoop for a second Vince Lombardi Trophy success next season.

Doug Pederson's side had been 7-4 underdogs to win their first championship but triumphed 41-33 in a record-breaking game.

The 74 points scored was the second-highest total in a Super Bowl but the teams broke 17 Super Bowl records and tied 12 more, while the 1,151 offensive yards recorded was the most ever in any NFL game.

The first scoring play was a field goal by Philadelphia's Jake Elliott - that had been a 19-5 chance and the first touchdown was a great 34-yard grab by Alshon Jeffery, who had been 14-1 for the opening six-pointer.

The Eagles led 22-12 at half-time (they had been 17-11 shots to be ahead while Justin Timberlake was performing) after a sensational touchdown reception from quarterback Nick Foles, who caught a pass from tight end Trey Burton on fourth down.

Timberlake's first song landed a gamble as Filthy had been backed from 8-1 to odds-on prices to open his set.

Offences continued to dominate in the second half and though New England got ahead 33-32 with a fourth-quarter TD from Rob Gronkowski, the Eagles scored the final ten points and held on for a famous victory.

Foles deservedly won the MVP award after coolly passing for 373 yards (Brady had a record-breaking 505 and the Patriots never punted in the game). He had been a 5-1 chance to be man of the match but his future with the Eagles is in doubt with starting quarterback Carson Wentz set to return from a knee injury next season.

The Eagles face tough opposition in the NFC again next season from the likes of Green Bay (12-1), Minnesota (14-1) and the LA Rams (20-1) while bookmakers consider Pittsburgh (10-1) the chief threat to the 6-1 Patriots in the AFC.


Offensive explosion costs Sporting Index

Spread betting firm Sporting Index reported "a comfortable six-figure loss" on the Super Bowl as the Patriots and Eagles sent points and yardage totals soaring at the US Bank Stadium in Minneapolis.

Buyers of a host of team and individual markets were in the money, but the victory of underdogs Philadelphia slightly reduced the overall damage.

Spokesman Neville Burdock explained: "The main markets we got stung on were touchdown shirt numbers (quoted at 230-250, made up at 388), total points (47-50, 74), the New England trio of Brady, Lewis and Gronkowski (470-495, 706) and total offensive yards (750-790, 1,151).

"The result would have been a lot worse if New England had won as we managed to get a bit back on New England supremacy. Our opening line was 3.5-5.5 and it settled at -8," explained Burdock.
