The New England Patriots remain favored to win the 2018 Super Bowl, but the updated betting odds indicate that the majority of the public has been backing the Philadelphia Eagles. The Super Bowl LII point spread is down to five points at most sportsbooks with 10 days until the NFL championship game.

The opening Super Bowl betting line varied at different sportsbooks, ranging mostly between five and six points. That number was largely down to 5.5 points by Monday morning, less than 24 hours after the Patriots and Eagles won their respective conference title games.

By Wednesday night, Philadelphia was only a 4.5-point underdog at some sportsbooks because of the support they were receiving from bettors. The betting line is back to five points at most places, according to OddsShark.

The Super Bowl total has stayed at 48 points. Most of the bets appear to be coming in on the over.

New England was dominant in their first playoff game, routing the Tennessee Titans 35-14. They were nearly upset by the Jacksonville Jaguars in the AFC Championship Game, coming back from a 10-point deficit in the fourth quarter.

The Patriots have been expected to reach Super Bowl LII all season long, but that wasn’t the case for the Eagles. Philadelphia was not among the NFC favorites at the start of the playoffs because of the season-ending injury to Carson Wentz. Nick Foles has been terrific in the postseason as his replacement, posting a 122.1 passer rating in the playoffs with a 77.8 percent completion rate.

The Eagles barely escaped the divisional round with a victory, defeating the Atlanta Falcons 15-10. The NFC Championship Game was much easier for Philadelphia, who blew out the visiting Minnesota Vikings 38-7.

Tom Brady and Bill Belichick have gone 5-2 in Super Bowls since 2002. New England’s only losses have come against the New York Giants, allowing Eli Manning and Co. to take the lead with a touchdown in the final minute of both contests. The Patriots totaled just 31 points in those two games.

Philadelphia covered the spread in their last trip to the Super Bowl. The Patriots defeated the Eagles 24-21 as seven-point favorites.
