Super Bowl: Patriots vs. Rams odds, over/under

Super Bowl: Patriots vs. Rams odds, over/under”

Whatever the reasons that Super Bowl losers so often underwhelm the next year, the Patriots have bucked the trend.

If the Patriots do win on Sunday, New England haters will point to this very moment to signal that the Super Bowl was rigged.

The Rams' past two trips to the big game were tight affairs in which they beat Tennessee and lost to New England. The Rams have four players on their roster who've played in a Super Bowl.

The largest margin in a Patriots Super Bowl under this regime has been the eight points the Eagles beat them by a year ago. More important, oddsmakers inflated the total by a point or two because the general public - the driving force in Super Bowl wagering - mostly places a parlay of the favorite and the total over. The Patriots held the Kansas City Chiefs' No. 1-ranked offense to just 290 net yards, and the Rams held the New Orleans Saints' No. 8-ranked offense to the exact same amount.

The Patriots were themselves one-point underdog when they upset the Seattle Seahawks 28-24 in Super Bowl XLIX, while the Seahawks were in a similar position a year earlier.

Super Bowl 53, Total Under 56.5, $880 to win $800: This is the ninth Super Bowl appearance in the Tom Brady-Bill Belichick Patriots dynasty.
