By the Football Garbage Time Staff

If you followed last year, you won over 60% of your picks, and we aim to do even better this year.

Without further to do, here are our final picks of the season, including a bunch of pro bets, just for you:

Super Bowl LII

 

Minneapolis, MN

Patriots favored by 4.5

Over/Under 48 

Moneyline

  • Eagles = +160
Ha Kung Wong’s Picks

Eagles Win, Take the Moneyline, Take the Over

Ha Kung’s Thoughts:

Last year I ended up with a 62% record for the season, so that’s two years in a row with over a 60% pick rate.  Was 50/50 in the Conference Championships, bringing me to 166-100 overall this year, which is a 62.4% pick rate, so we’re right on target once again this season!

Also, just because we love competition here at Football Garbage Time, we’re once again going heads up against Wally, Will and Ray at Urban Sports Scene on our NFL Picks.

They’re awesome competitors, and they KNOW their sports, so keep it tuned in, to both us and them, because we’ll be picking all season all long.

Scott King’s Picks

Patriots Win, Covers Spread, Take the Over

Another year, another Brady and Belichick sighting in the Super Bowl.  The Patriots franchise has had a run we’ve never seen before in football.  There have been some great teams in league history that were able to string together some dynasties, like the Steelers, 49ers, Cowboys, and even the Bills four straight losses was an impressive feat.  But 8 appearances since 2001 is truly amazing.

I have a hard time picking against B&B, especially with Foles at QB.  If Wentz plays, this is a completely different game.

I’m going to say this one is close, with the Pats winning late because, why not.
