Who will win Super Bowl 52 is the million dollar question, but not to worry, we are just a bit more than a month away from the answer, so hang in there.
So with that in mind, how about we give the list of top team to make it to the Super Bowl party.
The New England Patriots emerged as the first seed in the AFC conference. The Patriots who are one of the most decorated teams in the NFL history will be looking to add another feather to their hat. As the defending champions, the Patriots odds to win Super Bowl 2018 is considerably high compare to other teams. Their first seed finish in the regular season will mean that they will get to play their matches at home until the conference finals which gives them a home advantage. There is no hiding that the Patriots have the best odds to win this years Super Bowl but they will face stiff competition from other teams. Most analysts and pundits have given have the Patriots odds to win Super Bowl 2018 at about 6/1.
The following are some of the biggest challengers to the Patriots for this years Super Bowl.
The Super Bowl will be held at the Vikings home ground in Minnesota. They finished as the second seed in the NFC conference and they will also be a top contender for the championship. If they go ahead to lift the title this year, they will become the first team to win it in their home ground.
The Eagles finished the regular season at the top position of the NFC conference. Again, the home advantage in the divisional and conference round might give them the boost to reach the the finals. They had a 13-3-0 record in the regular season.
The Steelers finished as the second seed behind the Patriots in the AFC. Pittsburgh Steelers had a 13-3-0 record in the regular season and they also have a very decent team. Their odds to take this years championship are around 9/2. The Steelers will feel hard done by the officiating of their last match against the Patriots in the regular season and will have something to prove in the playoffs.
The wild-card teams in these years playoffs include the Tennessee Titans and Buffalo Bills from the AFC and Carolina Panthers and Atlanta Falcons from the NFC. The wild-card games are harder to predict which way the momentum will swing and going by history you can only take a wild guess. Who knows, there might be a surprise in the offing.
To sum it up, the Super Bowl LII title race is still an open race and any of the 12 teams still have a chance at the trophy. However, the clear facts that show that some teams like the Patriots are favorites. In the long history of the Super Bowl there have been plenty of surprises though and it is therefore advisable not to rule out any outcome.
