Standout World Series gambler now looking to cash in on Super Bowl

People across the nation have shared videos on social media asking Amazon's Alexa who she thinks will win the Super Bowl on February 4. He's now headed to his eighth Super Bowl, which technically means he's reached the big game in 50 percent of his career seasons-an unreal stat. New England Patriots and the Philadelphia Eagles both come from a different path, but with heart and believe they went a long way, now finally in the Super Bowl. They've had a fantastic season and won a conference championship. Sure, this won't be almost as interesting as watching the Vikings play in the Super Bowl, and, yes, we are now going to have to put up with a week of being heckled by Eagles fans, many of whom have no idea what it means to use their inside voice. "Last year, on Saturday and Sunday, we took probably a record number of six-figure wagers".

So here we are, a Nick Foles Philadelphia Eagles team that waltzed their way to the Super Bowl against the (obviously) unprepared Vikings. Sometimes referred to as "the genius", Belichick time and time again has found the right players to thrive in positions no one else would've ever thought. Unfortunately for them, it's not going to be easy to find places to stay, because the good folks in Minnesota are also working to make sure it doesn't happen. He remains tight with several of his former teammates and is even part of a regular group chat with New England running backs James White, Dion Lewis and Brandon Bolden.


"We were able to get the lead, then we didn't make enough plays to keep the lead", said Doug Marrone, Jacksonville's head coach, after losing to the Pats 24-20 in Sunday's AFC Championship game. "We will be sharing plans soon, but in the interest of not jinxing the team ahead of their upcoming game, we are not going to unveil any plans at this time".

Long contacted Eagles football operations chief Roseman, and the rest was history. Quarterback Carson Wentz was spotted without his cane for the first time since being mobile enough attend team practices.


"I found mine at a market", mask-wearing fan Ken Hawkins told USA Today. "I didn't get to really process it in the moment but now as an older player, I draw back on those memories".

Roger Goodell and Co., long ago decided they liked the current format and, at least this season, I'm with them.


Ahead of the big game in Minneapolis, Philadelphia mayor Jim Kenney and Brockton, Mass., mayor Bill Carpenter agreed to a Super Bowl bet, WCVB-TV reported Friday.
