Super Bowl 2018: Updated Odds and Predictions for Championship Tilt

Super Bowl 2018: Updated Odds and Predictions for Championship Tilt Super Bowl 2018: Updated Odds and Predictions for Championship Tilt

There is quite the financial benefit to hosting the Super Bowl and playing in it as well for the Vikings. The remaining percentage of the ticket revenue goes to the host team, and the Vikings would get that revenue on top of their Super Bowl share.

It is going to be an interesting playoffs season no matter how this ends up turning out. Straight up, AccuScore predicted 12 out of 16 regular-season games correctly for the Eagles this season. Foles has had success since taking over for the injured Carson Wentz, but will be tested in a big playoff game at home. Blake Bortles "led" his team to a victory running for more yards than he passed for.

In addition to being a long shot to win the league championship, the Eagles are also home underdogs in the divisional playoffs to the Atlanta Falcons.

The victor in the semi-final match will be pitted against the victor of the American Football Conference, where the Pittsburgh Steelers will face Jacksonville Jaguars while New England Patriots will play against the Tennessee Titans in their respective divisions.

After a series of a insane finishes during the AFC wild-card games, the divisional round is set. However, their offense struggled throughout the game, and the Patriots will likely take advantage of it during Saturday's match-up. With the AFC being the designated home team in this year's Super Bowl, the AFC champion would be assigned the Vikings' practice facility and locker room and the NFC champion would practice at the University of Minnesota and get the road locker room.

Those same Patriots are a huge favorite over the Titans this week.

The other NFC game features defending conference champion Atlanta (+700) visiting top-seeded Philadelphia (+1400). The Jaguars dominated the first meeting in Week 5, beating the Steelers 30-9 as the defense picked off Ben Roethlisberger five times. The Jaguars' defense is very talented, and could give Brady some problems with the pressure they get on the quarterback, along with their strong secondary. The 1979 Los Angeles Rams played the Pittsburgh Steelers in Super Bowl XIV at The Rose Bowl; and the 1984 San Francisco 49ers played the Miami Dolphins in Super Bowl XVIX, played at Stanford Stadium.

It is only the divisional round and there is still plenty of football to be played, but a Super Bowl rematch can still happen.

The question of who will win the Super Bowl is something that a lot of people ask themselves all throughout the year.
