Smarter Super Bowl 53 Bet: Pittsburgh Steelers or Philadelphia Eagles?
Jerry Habraken-USA TODAY Sports
Based on current NFL futures from the Westgate Las Vegas Superbook, Philadelphia and Pittsburgh are tied at +800 to win Super Bowl 53, trailing only New England (+600).
For those considering a value bet on either of these teams, or simply arguing over an “Almost Famous” sandwich and rum ham, we leveraged 10,000 Bet Labs simulations of the 2018 NFL season to determine which Pennsylvania team has the best chance to hoist the Lombardi Trophy in Atlanta.
At +800, odds indicate that the Eagles and Steelers have the exact same chances to win the Super Bowl this season. However, our most recent simulations reveal Philadelphia as the clear favorite in the Keystone State. After consulting the data, the Eagles took home the championship 17.0% of the time, while the Steelers came home with the trophy in 10.5% of simulations.
