The Super Bowl LII match up is finally set, but the fun is just beginning.
The New England Patriots will take on the Philadelphia Eagles at 4:30 p.m. Feb. 4. History is on the line: Tom Brady and the Patriots are shooting for their sixth Super Bowl win and second in-a-row; the Eagles are vying for their first Lombardi Trophy.
Beyond the action on the field is the excitement taking place off of it — namely, gambling.
Diehards live and breathe with point spreads and Super Bowl MVP odds. But in 2018, you can gamble on everything.
