We are now less than one week away from Super Bowl LII, and there have been several interesting storylines that have emerged. For starters, Tom Brady had his stitches removed from his throwing hand and is now nearing " percent health" heading into his eighth Super Bowl appearance.
Another main talking point heading into the big game is the health of Brady's most valuable weapon, Rob Gronkowski. Gronkowski suffered a concussion in the AFC Championship Game, but he was seen at practice this past Saturday running routes and catching passes. Only time will tell if Gronk will suit up, but if he isn't available then the "first touchdown scorer" prop becomes even more wide open. Speaking of the "first touchdown scorer" prop, this could be the prop bet that not only provides the most value but the one prop that can be handicapped to some extent.
To start, we must look back at how the game normally starts - with the dreaded Coin Flip prop bet. The NFC has won a staggering 18 of the last 20 coin flips. So, if that's any indication, the Eagles could have the advantage should they elect to receive instead of defer to the second half - which the Patriots always do.
Furthermore, in the seven Super Bowls New England has played in under Belichick and Brady, they have won the coin toss just one time. With history on the side of the Eagles and the Patriots' typical decision to defer to the second half, I think it's best we focus on an Eagles player to find the end zone first.
