By staff
Jacksonville, FL – Feb. 2, 2005 – With only four days remaining until the biggest event in professional sports, sportsbook.com football fans have overwhelmingly picked the New England Patriots as their favourite for Super Bowl XXXIX.

But - sportsbook.com betting trends show the following states as strong Philadelphia Eagles supporters:

· Florida

· Nevada

· Delaware

· Hawaii

· Iowa

· New Jersey

· Pennsylvania

In addition, sportsbook.com shows several states are still sitting on the fence, with a 50-50 split decision, including:

· Vermont

· North Carolina

· Idaho

“This really isn’t surprising based on the way the Patriots have been performing, but I would expect several states including New York and Michigan to swing towards the Eagles by game time,” said Alex Czajkowski, Marketing Director, Sportsbook.com. “We will continue to track the trends as the big day quickly approaches.”

In addition to betting on the straight winner, sportsbook.com offers over 700 different props and odds for Super Bowl. These props and odds run from the first play of the game, to the end, and everything in between.
