Philly +4.5 over New England
New England plays close Super Bowls. Last 7 Super Bowl margin of victory over 4 points just one time. That was last year when the game went to overtime. Philly has dealt with injuries all year long and have moved forward in spite of key losses. Doug Pederson and Eagles have embraced the underdog role.

Our Man in Stripes
Philly +4.5 over New England
With Gronk not being 100 percent this is huge for me. Philly will get pressure up the middle with Fletcher Cox. Brady leads the league in passing, those QB’s that have led the league in passing are 0-4 in Super Bowls. NFC East gets Brady again. Philly wins outright 26-23.

OKC -6.5 over New Orleans
Russell Westbrook and Paul George are playing hot together of late. OKC is especially tough at home. Steven Adams is going to do his best to contain Anthony Davis. New Orleans has no other options now. OKC can score at home and New Orleans can’t keep up.

Philly/New England Under 48
The Eagles defense is good enough to limit Brady. They have what you need in a good defensive line to get pressure up the middle. This has hurt Brady in the past. Bill Belichick won’t let Foles go off like he did against Minnesota. Should be a low scoring game.

Golden State -12.5 over Sacramento
Warriors will not lose two in a row. They come into this game on a mission after dropping last game. Warriors still have a good bench led by Nick Young to hold onto a big lead the starters will give them.

Nelson Agholor over 3.5 Receptions
Bill Belichick is a master of taking away the other teams best weapons. Last year he did a great job of limiting Julio Jones receptions. This year I believe he takes out Alshon Jeffery. I’ve like Agholor since he came out of USC. I think Foles needs to pass to win this game. His second receiver will get the targets.
