***Jim Bob's Super Bowl LII Selection***
February 4th, 2018

For anybody that noticed, I nailed both sides against the spread in the Championship round by encouraging serious consideration of Romeo Pericic's trends play of Philadelphia +3 and by insisting that Jacksonvile was underrated by the spread as the underdog at +8.5 at the time I made the call.  Both were dead on.
 
Once again the meta-analysis has no picks.
 
This week I am going to disagree with Mr. Pericic's trends play of New England and instead encourage serious consideration of both his RP Excel 1 selection as well as RP Excel 2.  Both have the game as a 1 point margin and reflect the fact that the spread should be much smaller and quite possibly have the Eagles as the favorite.  The Eagles have proven their mettle.  They defeated a Falcons team that had really hit their stride and looked to go further in the playoffs.  Then they played arguably the best defense int he NFL and made them look average.  Their offense was dynamic and at times, brilliant.  Oh, and there defense is really, really solid too.  With all due respect to Belichick and Brady, and the Patriots whole team, they do not have Minnesota's defense.  Can the Patriots offense put up enough points to beat the Eagles?  If the Eagles don't play all 4 quarters (can anybody say Jacksonville?) then yes.  However, if the Eagles play well for 4 quarters, it may not even be a matter of whether they win, but rather by how much.
 
Should be a great match-up.  All true fans love a great Super Bowl!

Take Philly +4.5.  
 
P.S. friends and family will vouch for me that since 1999 I have only missed the spread pick 3 times.  I've been wrong on the winner far more often but I'm solid on the Super Bowl spread.  I know I do not have the proof here of that claim but I assure you it is honest, and I have made a lot of other people a lot of money too as a result.  
 
All the best to you! See ya next year!  -Jim Bob

Thanks so much Loren,

NFL is my strongest area of expertise, so I don't wish to lie or exaggerate my knowledge about other sports. I do, however, have a lot of years of accumulated knowledge though of where to look for the best analysis and ability to keep up with every sport out there so that I have objective information (not popular opinions) of where teams rate. Do you have a sport you are looking for advice in? If so I may be able to be of service to you, so say the word!

Jim, congratulations on your SB selection and solid analysis of the competing teams. Besides your expertise in the NFL, do you do other sports?
