The New England Patriots will face the Philadelphia Eagles in Super Bowl LII on Feb. 4, but until then, sports bettors and oddsmakers will be scrambling to predict the right betting line.

This is the Patriots’ eighth Super Bowl appearance of the Tom Brady/Bill Belichick era. Let’s look back at the betting lines and how New England fared against the spread in those previous seven contests.
