It’s Christmas for sports bettors in the United States—the Super Bowl is here. The NFC’s participant in Super Bowl LIII is the Los Angeles Rams, who in case you hadn’t heard won the
NFC title game in overtime in controversial fashion over the New Orleans Saints. At this point, how the Rams got to Atlanta really doesn’t matter. They’re there—with a high-octane offense and a defense that features reigning Defensive Player of the Year Aaron Donald.
The AFC is represented by the New England Patriots—because the AFC is always represented by the New England Patriots. After opening overtime of the AFC Championship Game with a methodical touchdown drive, the Patriots are playing in a jaw-dropping ninth Super Bowl with Tom Brady at quarterback. It’s really quite gross.
You don’t need me to tell you that after the Rams opened as slight favorites a flood of action on the Pats shoved the line the other way in minutes. The Patriots are currently 2.5-point favorites, but given the percentage of bets on New England that line may move to -3 as we near gameday.
The money has also been heavy on the Under. The total for Super Bowl LIII opened at a record-high of 58, but it has fallen a full two points at some books and may drop more still. At any rate, you probably either already have money wagered against the spread and total already anyway. Or you’re waiting for one last bit of movement on the line before pouncing. Either way, there’s no shortage of folks here at Sports Bet Collective with advice in that regard.
We’re going in a different direction here, with some action within the action. Cash on the side. Prop Bets.
