Super Bowl Betting Predictions And Odds
In 2019, the New England Patriots floor their way to history, defeating the Los Angeles Rams 13-3 in Super Bowl LIII in Atlanta, to place a record-equalling 6th NFL title. The two teams had played in Super Bowl XXXVI in 2002 — if the Rams were based in St Louis — with a young rookie quarterback named Tom Brady leading the Patriots to an upset victory.
Nearly a generation later, in a defensive match which never reached any great heights, the Patriots dominated play and may well have won by many more. Nonetheless, in the lowest-scoring Super Bowl of all time, New England failed sufficient, and got the job done to offer now-veteran quarterback, Tom Brady his 6th championship, the most of any player in NFL history. Coach Bill Belichick made history, winning his Super Bowl ring — two as a coach for the New York Giants and six as the Patriots’ Head Coach.
Superbowl LIII was a mismatch in so many ways. At 32 and 24 respectively, Rams’ coach Sean McVay and quarterback Jared Goff were up against wily specialists in Belichick and Brady. The Rams duo spent the previous two seasons heralding the coming of a new era of football — where offense was searching a setback to the old adage which teams finally must win championships with defence. The old adage prevailed.
The Patriots set their’past vs the future’ battle with the AFC Championship title victory with a 37-31 win over the Kansas City Chiefs, the only other team that outplayed the Rams from the 2018-19 year old. For their part, the Rams took out a controversial 26-23 overtime win over arguably the best team in the NFL in 2018-19, the New Orleans Saints, aided with a doubtful call by the officials at the closing minutes of regulation time.
