Ten Years On from Patriots’ Back-to-Back Super Bowls, Can Seattle Repeat the Feat?
In February 2005, at the Alltel Stadium in Jacksonville, the New England Patriots held off a late rally from the Philadelphia Eagles to win Super Bowl XXXIX, their second title in a row.
No NFL side has repeated the trick since, but that could change on February 1st as the Seattle Seahawks take to the field at University of Phoenix Stadium. And in a great twist, their opponents will be none other than the Patriots.
New England Patriots -125
Seattle Seahawks +105

One year ago, Seattle cruised to Super Bowl victory with a dominant performance against the Denver Broncos. Many who featured that day will be involved again in the 2015 edition, not least Marshawn Lynch and Russell Wilson.
However their opponents won this year’s AFC Championship Game convincingly, brushing aside the Indianapolis Colts, and enter the game as narrow favorites.
AllYouBet.ag is marking the occasion with two great promotions: members can deposit using coupon code SBBONUS15 for a 50% bonus up to $100, while those betting on the game itself can earn themselves a $100 post-season free bet.
So, who do you think will come out on top on February 1st? Have your say in the comments below.
