Rams vs Patriots
Super Bowl 53
Prop Bet Picks & Score Prediction

Los Angeles Rams

The Rams made it to the Super Bowl following one of the worst blown calls in NFL history in the NFC Championship game almost two weeks ago. Lucky to be here? They were the number two seed in the NFC. In 2018 the Rams (15-3 SU, 9-8-1 ATS, 9-9 O/U) averaged 32.9 points per game ranking second in the NFL And, don’t forget that despite all of that scoring the Rams best player is an interior defensive lineman tackle Aaron Donald.

The best way to beat Tom Brady is to get pressure up the middle and to the Rams can definitely do that because of Donald and fellow standout defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh. The Rams held Dallas to 22 points in the divisional round before mostly keeping Drew Brees and the New Orleans Saints in check in their 26-23 overtime win in the NFC Championship game. The Rams also have cornerbacks Aqib Talib back and he can cover anyone on New England’s roster man-to-man, thereby freeing up their front seven to get after Brady early and often.

  • Rams are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games overall.
  • Rams are 4-1-1 ATS in their last 6 games following a straight up win.
  • Rams are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games after accumulating less than 90 yards rushing in their previous game.

New England Patriots

The Patriots are in a Super Bowl? In 2018 New England (13-5 SU, 11-7 ATS, 7-11 O/U) looked a little down at the midpoint of the season but once again came on strong late. This season the Patriots are better balanced on both sides of the ball in ranking fourth in scoring (27.2 ppg) and seventh in points allowed (20.3 ppg).

The Patriots are playing their best offensive football of the season at just the right time, having scored 37 points or more in each of their last three games dating back to their regular season finale.

Super Bowl 53 Betting Predictions

Who will win? More important. Who will cover the Super Bowl? Both of these teams went to overtime to get here and I have this as another game that will go down to the end to be decided. The betting line has gone back and forth between the Patriots as a 2.5 or 3 point favorite. If you are in Las Vegas betting then and you want to bet on the Rams I would wait until all of the Los Angeles crowd gets to Las Vegas on Saturday and they should get the line to +3 (-110) for the Rams. I will be betting with online sportsbooks who offer a full line of prop bets and alternate lines on my phone.

All of the talk about Belicheck has glossed over the point that he will be going against the Rams offense but it will be his offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels. I have a big edge to Rams defensive coordinator Wade Phillips in this matchup. Will Belicheck be able to slow down the Rams offense? Yes. Will Phillips be able to slow down the Patriots offense? Yes. I have a relatively low scoring Super Bowl going to the fourth quarter. The two players who will make the difference and be the deciding factor? Todd Gurley and Greg Zuerlein. If you want to know what Todd Gurley can do against the Pats, take a look at what Kareem Hunt did against them. Why Greg Zuerlein? The man does it again and closes out a Rams victory with a late field goal.
