Vegas Doubting Eagles Yet Again in Super Bowl LII

The world's corniest (fake) made-for-TV screenplay lives to see at least two more weeks.

Behind an impressive performance from Nick Foles, the top-seeded underdog Eagles on Sunday night manhandled the Vikings to the tune of 38-7 in the NFC Championship Game to advance to Super Bowl LII (see Roob's observations).

Next up, a date with those New England Patriots in Minneapolis on Feb. 4 for a rematch of Super Bowl XXXIX.

And the early betting line is in - and you guessed it, the Eagles remain underdogs … just how they like it.

According to, the Patriots are a 5½-point or 6-point favorite of the Eagles depending on which line you prefer.

The Eagles have been counted out time and time again since Carson Wentz tore his ACL on Dec. 10 and they've now beaten all odds (see story).
