The NFL’s season finale takes place this Sunday at Super Bowl LVI when the Rams take on the Bengals. Will Los Angeles win on its home field or will Cincinnati take home its first Lombardi Trophy in the Year of the Tiger?
The Rams come in as a 4.5-point favorite over the AFC champion Bengals, according to BetMGM. In the money line bet, Los Angeles is a -200 favorite — meaning a $200 bet would win $100. Cincinnati is a +165 underdog.
The over-under for total points scored in the game 48.5, which is just a smidgen more than the 48.3 points averaged over the last 10 Super Bowls. During the regular season, the Rams averaged 27.1 points and allowed 21.9 points, while the Bengals put up 27.1 and gave up 22.1.
Los Angeles is favored to win in regulation at -175, followed by Cincinnati earning the victory by the end of the fourth quarter (+180). Potential fortune favors the bold who are looking at an overtime game as odds grow immensely with a Rams win (+1,600) having a slight edge over a Bengals’ one (+1,800). Overtime games are a rarity with only one of the previous 55 games going into extra time: a Patriots’ 34-28 win over the Falcons in 2017.
