Super Bowl 52 Picks Super Bowl 52 Predictions: Philadelphia Eagles 15-3-0 VS New England Patriots 15-3-0

Super Bowl 52 Predictions

New England has a chance to win three Super Bowls in four years once again. The last time the Patriots won three Super Bowls in four years they defeated the Philadelphia Eagles in Jacksonville which is fitting since that's who the Patriots defeated to win this years AFC CHampionship Game.

1. Philadelphia Eagles 15-3-0
1. New England Patriots 15-3-0

Chris Ransom's Pick

Oren Shiri now has a nine game lead at 178-88 after the conference championship week. Oren has officially locked up first place for 2017 after Jesse Lucas got first place in 2014, Jason Bantle in 2015, and myself in 2016. I am now at 169-97 in second place. Jason Bantle is 168-98. Jesse Lucas and Tanya Holmes are tied for fourth place 167-99 on the year after Tanya went 2-0 in Conference Championship like Oren and myself.

Why the Philadelphia Eagles Will Win: The Eagles have Nick Foles not Carson Wentz at quarterback. I realize Foles has balled out. At the same time the Eagles don't have Jason Peters at left tackle. With Trey Flowers, Kyle Van Noy, and James Harrison all having that ability to win battles against Philadelphia's backup left tackle off the edge, that's what will ultimately propel the New England Patriots to victory. New England has one of the most disciplined defenses too.

Why the New England Patriots Will Win: Of all of Tom Brady's eight Super Bowl games, this is the one I am the most confident in them winning. Rodney McLeod is a great strong safety, but he matches up worse with Rob Gronkowski then Barry Church. With Gronkowski practicing again, I feel like he will play. New England will deal with a lethal front 7, but Nate Solder will be able to give Brady enough time in the pocket to make the right throws.

This secondary features Stephon Gilmore, Malcolm Butler, and Eric Rowe at cornerback. Patrick Chung and Devin McCourty are playing at strong safety and free safety. Minnesota only has one good safety in Harrison Smith and their secondary isn't as deep or as disciplined as the Patriots.

Since launching this website in October 2012, I'm 4-1 all time with Super Bowl predictions with Super Bowl 48 being the only game I called wrong. Also I switched from a Website Builder to a C Panel in April of 2014 so I'm 3-0 on Super Bowls since switching to a C Panel. Coincidentally, the Patriots are 3-0 when wearing white jerseys in the Super Bowl. New England can improve to 4-0 in Super Bowls with a win in Super Bowl 52 as they are wearing White this year in the same year that Tom Brady turned 40. Also the crowd is on their side with Minnesota hosting the Super Bowl losing this years NFC Championship game to the Eagles.

Super Bowl 49 Jesse and I both picked New England and Jason picked Seattle. Super Bowl 50 was one Super Bowl our staff was torn on. I picked Denver, but a majority of our writers picked the Panthers. In Super Bowl 51 everyone except Oren picked the Patriots. This is the first Super Bowl since I launched the C Panel where everyone is picking the Patriots unanimously.

At the same time, the co-host of my podcast Joseph Potter who runs The Evolution Network is picking the Eagles. His co-host Andrew Kermish who is also a regular on our podcast is also picking the Eagles so we will have a friendly debate lined up on Super Bowl Sunday for our podcast at either 9 or 10 AM due to Joey working on Super Bowl Sunday.

For the third year in a row, NFL Big Brother our parody had the seasons winner in the Super Bowl. Carolina defeated Denver in Season 1 of NFL Big Brother only to watch the runner up in season 1 Denver defeat Carolina in Super Bowl 50. Season 2 featured New England defeating an 8 seed Detroit Lions team in overtime and last years Super Bowl went to overtime even with the Falcons representing the NFC. I know only 6 teams make the NFL Playoffs, but on NFL Big Brother we have an 8 team playoff and Detroit beat the Eagles to win the NFC last season.

This year NFL Big Brother had the Eagles playing the Patriots in Super Bowl 52. The Eagles led 30-0 at halftime only for New England to come back on a 31-0 run to win 31-30. The insane thing is New England trailed 30-3 after three quarters and still won with Philadelphia not scoring on a 9 minute drive after New England made it 30-24 with ten minutes left in the game.

I can't promise that Super Bowl 52 will be that exciting and that insane for the NFL. I also can't promise that Philadelphia will get demoralized in that fashion or if Belichick can top last years come back. I do believe New England will win though.

I'm going to say Philadelphia will lead Super Bowl 52 23-9 at halftime. Tom Brady will have New England tie it in the fourth quarter.

I believe Philadelphia will be tied 23-23 late in the game. They will make a fourth and goal stop, but Steratore will get out an index card and give the Patriots a touchdown. It will be exactly like the Jesse James play that Pittsburgh had, but Gronkowski will get the touchdown called in his favor thanks to an index card ruling by Steratore. People who hate the Patriots will lose their shit over this and call this Inch Gate.

Last year I said New England would take a 28-3 lead before Atlanta rallied back to make it 31-28 with New England tying the game at the end and sending it to overtime only to win 34-31 in overtime. Well I was right about someone blowing a 28-3 lead, but I was wrong about the team that blew the lead. Last years Super Bowl went exactly how I expected it to.

That should speak volumes. Doug Peterson needs to come up with a very inspirational speech and have all the breaks go Philadelphia's way if Philadelphia has any chance of defeating the defending World Champions with a backup quarterback and a backup left tackle.

Prediction: New England enters as a 4.5 point favorite. The minimum bet is $165 dollars, the maximum bet is $185 dollars with the average gambler betting around $175 dollars on this game. It's worth noting that 57 percent of the public is betting on Philadelphia which is why Vegas lowered the point spread from New England at 8.5 to New England at 4.5. The over or under on this game is 48 points. I like New England to win and cover with the over.

Final Score Patriots 30 Eagles 23
