Highest scoring quarter
The points per quarter breakdown makes for interesting reading when looked through the prism of Super Bowls in the last decade. In the last 10 years, the first quarter has never produced the most points, while the remaining three quarters or more or less equally split, with the second and fourth quarters producing the most points on three occasions and the third quarter coming out on top four times.
Unsurprisingly, the first quarter is the outsider to produce the most points at 6/1 but a bet could be suggested by drilling down into the last three Super Bowls contested by the Patriots in 2018, 2017 and 2015.
In every one of those matches, the first quarter was the lowest-scoring quarter, with the games in 2015 and 2017 producing zero points. The second quarter also contained most points with 22 points in 2018, 24 points in 2017 and 28 points in 2015. Interestingly, the Patriots were outscored in two of those, conceding 13 points to Philadelphia last year, 21 points to Atlanta in 2017 and 14 to Seattle in 2015.
With that in mind, the 6/4 about the second quarter to have most points could attract some money.
