New England Patriots vs. Los Angeles Rams Super Bowl 53 Betting Preview

Both the Pats and Rams were 3-point underdogs heading into their respective Conference Championships. It took overtime for both teams to make it to the Super Bowl. The 66-year-old Bill Belichick, the 41-year-old Tom Brady, and the Patriots defeated the Chiefs 37-31. The 32-year-old Sean McVay, the 24-year-old Jared Goff, and the Los Angeles beat the Saints 26-23 after the biggest no call in the history of sports.

Yes, the Patriots opened as slight underdogs to win the Super Bowl against the Rams before being bet heavily and being turned into 2-point favorites. The Pats have milked their slow start into us against the world theme for their ever so predictable playoff push. But let’s not pretend that a team that’s been to eight consecutive AFC championship games, three straight Super Bowls and won five championship in 18 seasons is an underdog. Early money proves that.

Let’s put this into further perspective. Brady’s first Super Bowl trip and win was against the Rams and now 8 Super Bowls trips later Brady faces the Rams again in his ninth trip to the Super Bowl. Goff was just eight years old when Brady won his that first ring. The Rams haven’t been to the Super Bowl since that loss to the Pats in 2002, and they haven’t won a title since the 1999 season.
