Super Bowl Betting Preview

Super Bowl Prediction:

New England Patriots -4.5 points spread at 6/4 with Paddy Power

The Greatest Show on Earth takes place this Sunday, with Super Bowl 51 at the NRG Stadium in Houston.

The vastly experienced AFC champions, New England Patriots who have four Super Bowl titles and nine appearances to their name, take on the NFC champions Atlanta Falcons, who have never won the title and have just one appearance to their name back in 1999.

New England Patriots

It is difficult to single out players for the Patriots, with the best defence in the NFL supporting a superb pass and rush offence, however two players especially stand out.

Firstly Quarterback, Tom Brady is a straightforward choice. Despite missing the opening four games of the regular season, Brady and his golden arm still managed 28 touchdown passes, beating many of his compatriots who played the extra games. Running-back LeGarrette Blount deserves lots of praise too, with a season high eighteen touchdowns scored on rushing plays, a career record for the Florida born star.

Atlanta Falcons

The Falcons had a tougher time than their opponents on their way to Super Bowl 51, as the defence at times was bailed out by the ferocious offence, which had the highest points average per game in the NFL.

One defenceman who did stand out and could make a difference however, is Vic Beasley, with the Outside Linebacker topping the “Quarterback sacking” charts this season. In Offence, Quarterback Matt Ryan deserves a mention, with the Falcons star throwing just shy of 5,000 yards with a 70 percent completion rate, all with a leaky defence in front of him, which shows how good he really is under pressure.

Super Bowl 51 Betting Tip

The Patriots are simply the best all round team in the NFL at the moment and if they can keep the flying Falcons offence at bay, they should have enough to win the game.

The Falcons need to keep Tom Brady off the field for as long as possible to protect the weaker defence, but with New England’s ability to mix up their plays between passing and rushing so effectively, I cannot see how Atlanta can stop the Patriots taking the Vince Lombardi trophy back to Massachusetts.
