With only the New England Patriots, Jacksonville Jaguars, Philadelphia Eagles and Minnesota Vikings remaining in the 2018 NFL playoffs, there are eight possible outcomes for Super Bowl LII. Six of those possibilities have a franchise winning its first-ever Super Bowl, though the betting odds favor the defending champions.

Ahead of Sunday’s AFC Championship Game between the Jaguars and Patriots, New England is the Super Bowl favorite. A win for the Patriots over the Vikings is considered to be the most likely outcome at U.S. Bank Stadium on Feb. 4, followed by a victory for the Patriots over the Eagles.

Oddsmakers, fans and NFL experts alike expect New England to take care of business against Jacksonville. The betting line for the conference title game is either nine points or 9.5 points, depending upon the sportsbook, and the Patriots have been the Super Bowl favorites ever since they defeated the Atlanta Falcons in last year’s big game.

The outcome of the NFC Championship Game isn’t considered to be nearly as predictable. Minnesota is favored on the road against Philadelphia, though the betting line has moved from 4.5 points to a field goal at some sportsbooks, according to OddsShark.

Minnesota over New England has the third-best betting odds of any possible Super Bowl scenario. Philadelphia over New England is fourth on the list.

Jacksonville is involved in the four least likely Super Bowl scenarios, though that doesn’t mean a Jaguars’ victory has the worst odds. If the AFC South champions can somehow get past New England, Jacksonville would be favored in a potential matchup with Philadelphia.

It’s nearly eight times more likely that Super Bowl LII will end with the Patriots beating the Vikings than the Eagles beating the Jaguars, according to 5Dimes. A win for Jacksonville over either Minnesota or Philadelphia is also considered to be a long shot.

Heading into the conference championship game, the Patriots have even odds to win yet another Super Bowl. They’ve won the title in two of the last three years, giving Tom Brady and Bill Belichick five rings with New England.

Minnesota has +175 odds to win their first-ever Super Bowl. The Vikings are 0-4 in Super Bowls in franchise history.

Philadelphia has +700 odds to get their first Super Bowl victory. The Eagles last reached the game in 2005 when they lost to the Patriots.

Jacksonville has never even played in a Super Bowl. They’ve got +900 odds to win it all.
