Analysis

There is no greater irony in Super Bowl LIII than this: While franchises are climbing all over each other to hire Sean McCoy clones as head coach, if you swapped coaches here, the Rams would be favored.

Analysis

Like many, I'm recommending buying the half-point to get to Rams +3 if you can. New England had a much easier trip here than the Rams did. The Patriots got in by playing the road-weary Chargers, a team with a slumping QB, and then a team with no defense.

This total is a little high. New England's pass defense is very good, and the Rams won't let Tom Brady stand back in the pocket all day like he did against the Chiefs. Go Under.

Analysis

These have been two of the best offenses in the NFL all season long but I don't expect either offense to have an amazing performance in this game. More than anything, I see the Rams struggling to move the ball consistently against a Patriots defense that will figure out a way to slow down its run game.

Analysis

Every bone in my body is telling me to take the Rams and the points in this game, but I just can't do it. Count me amongst the public in this game, because I think that Bill Belichick will take away the Rams rushing attack in this game and force Jared Goff to beat him.

Analysis

The Patriots are back in the Super Bowl, and I'm not going to be the one to pick against them, not when they'll be up against a Rams team with a quarterback I don't particularly trust in big spots and a defense that has trouble shutting down the run.

The Rams and Patriots each ranked in the top four in scoring and top five in yards, and allowed the same amount of yards per game defensively. But ... New England's defense ranked seventh in points allowed, the Rams 20th.

The last two Super Bowls have been high scoring, and the over-under of 56.5 in this one suggests that oddsmakers understand the rise of creative offenses and how dangerous these two specific units are.

I'm not taking the Rams because underdogs have been the way to go in Super Bowls lately, or because Sean McVay is 8-0 in his two years against AFC teams, or because I saw the Patriots lose five games away from their home field this season.

We've got two of the highest scoring teams in the NFL facing each other and the Patriots offense has looked its best in their last three games scoring at least 37 points in each. The Patriots have also gone Over the total in seven of their last eight playoff games, including both this season.

You should try to grab +3 at -125. I've had the Rams rated No. 1 the entire season, except for the final two weeks when Todd Gurley was out, and then it was the Saints by a half-point.

The NFL wants scoring so there will be plenty of defensive pass interference flags. The Patriots will try to run but find it too hard, so Tom Brady will dink and dunk down the field.

The Patriots tend to play close Super Bowls, so from that standpoint I understand the line here. And the Rams have an elite defensive line. But where they're vulnerable, the linebacking corps, is where the Patriots love to attack.
