I am on the Falcons +3 and the over in this year’s Super Bowl. I’m also on Julio Jones at 14-1 to be Super Bowl MVP. 

Today Jon Campbell and I from OddsShark had our weekly gambling preview show where we discussed the game, prop bets, and more. Basically everything you could need to bet the Super Bowl. You can listen to that here. 

And here is OddsShark’s gambling preview. 

Heading into their Super Bowl LI matchup in Houston the New England Patriots have won the past four meetings with the Atlanta Falcons both straight up and against the spread, although the teams have not met since 2013. The two teams looked like they were destined to meet in Super Bowl XLVII earlier that year, but each of them lost their respective conference championship games at home.

Based on experience and overall performance, Tom Brady, Bill Belichick, and the Patriots seem to have a big edge at Super Bowl LI, as they have covered their last seven games and won nine in a row straight up while the Falcons have failed to beat the spread in their last five games as underdogs in the postseason.

The Patriots will also be making their record ninth appearance in the Super Bowl, going 4-4 SU in their previous eight but only 1-4 ATS in their last five. The best betting trend for Atlanta is that the favorite is 0-5 ATS in the past five Super Bowl matchups.

Kickoff is set for 6:30pm ET on February 5. More Super Bowl LI betting trends . . .

The Falcons are 6-2 SU and 7-1 ATS in their last eight games as underdogs.

The Falcons are 6-2 SU and ATS in their last eight games against teams over .500.

The Falcons are 5-12 ATS in their last 17 games against the AFC.

The Patriots are 7-2 SU in their last nine games against the NFC.

The Patriots are 6-1 SU in their last seven games as favorites in the playoffs.

The total has gone UNDER in three of the Patriots’ last four Super Bowls.

The total has gone OVER in six of the Patriots’ last seven games against teams over .500.

The total has gone OVER in the Falcons’ last eight games.
