The Eagles will try to upset the Patriots on Sunday in Super Bowl LII, but for some bettors the game means more than wagering on point spreads and totals. Let's look at some value-oriented picks in the props market.

Super Bowl LII: Best Props Odds

The NFL season culminates Sunday with Super Bowl LII from U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis (NBC, 6:30 pm ET), where the AFC champion and defending Super Bowl champion New England Patriots face the underdog NFC champion Philadelphia Eagles. The Eagles have made it to this highest-of-high-profile NFL championship games without starting QB Carson Wentz, with gutty backup Nick Foles trying to finish the team’s dream season in style. Meanwhile the Patriots, led by perhaps the best coach/QB duo in NFL history (Bill Belichick and Tom Brady), are making their record 10th Super Bowl appearance.

One of the more exotic props is: “Will they be shown on camera during the national anthem?” According to BetOnline, the numbers for Brady are Yes -800 and No +500. There are numerous other props more related to the game itself, including the always-popular Super Bowl MVP marketplace that often has a wide variety of prices when shopping sportsbooks. Eight of the past 11 Super Bowl MVPs were the winning QB. Brady has been Super Bowl MVP four times, including last year after rallying the Patriots to an overtime win over the Falcons.

The current line for Sunday's game on the NFL odds board has the Patriots as 4½- to 5½-point favorites, with most major offshore sportsbooks hanging a 4½ with the total at 48 and the moneyline (New England minus) odds in the range of -180 to -210. It looks as if sportsbooks will be pulling for the Eagles and the "under" unless there is some massive late influx of Patriots money.

Let’s look at the best current numbers for players offered in four Super Bowl props markets: MVP, First TD Scorer, Last TD Scorer, and Anytime TD Scorer.
