Super Bowl LIII - New England Patriots vs LA Rams Betting Tips
Did we really ever doubt that Tom Brady and the New England Patriots would make it to the Super Bowl again? Despite looking a shadow of their best for much of the regular season, the Pats will start favourites against the LA Rams in the big dance. Super Bowl LIII will be played at Atlanta’s Mercedes-Benz Stadium, Monday February 4, at 10:30am AEST.
Rams Stand in Way of Patriots… and History
The Rams were title favourites for much of the regular season, storming to a 13-3 win-loss record and a share of the NFL’s best record. But the thought that they would come up against the Patriots in the Super Bowl probably never even entered head coach Sean McVay’s mind.
Brady and New England have met the Rams in a Super Bowl once before, in 2002. On that occasion the Pats held off a fast-finishing Rams to win 20-17. Since then, New England have made another eight Super Bowls, winning four more. The most notable thing the Rams have done in that time is return to LA from St. Louis three years ago. They haven’t been back to the Super Bowl since 2002 and have lost all four regular season matches against the Patriots in that period.
LA Rams v NE Patriots Betting Tips
Love him or loath him, much of the attention will be on whether Tom Brady can win a record sixth Super Bowl and record fifth Super Bowl MVP. PointsBet is offering “elite odds” of 4.00 on Brady winning the MVP and leading his team to victory.
Much of the Rams’ success this season can be credit to running back Todd Gurley, the league leader in touchdowns with 21. Gurley must be at his best LA to win. Bet365 is paying 4.50 for Gurley to score two or more TDs.
Given their regular season record, the Rams are paying great odds. Unibet is offering 2.18 on an LA Rams Super Bowl victory.
