New England Patriots vs Los Angeles Rams Predictions, Picks, Odds and Betting Preview – Super Bowl LIII – February 3 2019

The final stage is set. The New England Patriots and the Los Angeles Rams will meet in Super Bowl 53 in Atlanta, where Tom Brady will look to get his sixth Super Bowl ring. Meanwhile, the Rams are looking to avenge the franchise’s loss to the Patriots back in 2002 at Super Bowl 36, when the team was still based in St. Louis. That win for New England marked the beginning of the Belichick-Brady era and if Hollywood scripted this they would bring it full circle here in 2019 with a Patriots win before heading off into the sunset.

Will New England add to their dynasty’s legend? Or will the Rams put on a show and become the new sheriffs in town? The sportsbook expectedly likes experience in this matchup, giving the Patriots a slight 2.5-point edge.

Betting on the New England Patriots (11-5 Regular Season)

For the third straight year, the Patriots are going to the Super Bowl after Tom Brady and company eliminated the Kansas City Chiefs in the AFC title game with a 37-31 overtime win at Arrowhead Stadium last Sunday. Brady didn’t play a great game, but his performance against the Chiefs was good enough to carry the Patriots into a victory. Brady passed for 348 passing yards with a touchdown and two interceptions on 30-of-46 completions. In two games in the playoffs, Brady has amassed 691 passing yards with two touchdowns and two interceptions on a 91.5 passer rating.  New England’s success in the postseason, however, can be largely attributed not only to Brady but also to his protection unit and the team’s ground attack. For the record, Brady has yet to be sacked in these playoffs, which is somewhat surprising, considering he faced Joey Bosa and the Los Angeles Chargers and Chris Jones and the Chiefs. Up against the Rams’ stout defensive line in the Super Bowl, Brady expects the Pats’ offensive line to show up again. Meanwhile, rookie running back Sony Michel has arguably been New England’s MVP in the playoffs so far, having rushed for 242 yards and five touchdowns in the last two games.

The Patriots are 3-0 against the spread (ATS) in their last three games overall.

Betting on the Los Angeles Rams (13-3 Regular Season)

Whether the Rams were the worthy victors in the NFC title game against the New Orleans Saints or not, the fact remains that they will be the conference’s representative in Super Bowl 53. The Rams are coming off a controversial 26-23 win in overtime against the Saints on the road last Sunday, and will meet the Pats in the grandest stage of football. One big question for them is if running back Todd Gurley will be 100 percent by the time the Super Bowl rolls around. Gurley played in the NFC title game, but looked shaky despite scoring a rushing touchdown to go with only 10 rushing yards. With plenty of rest ahead of him, perhaps that would be enough for Gurley to round into top form. In any case, he’ll get help from C.J, Anderson, who is providing the Rams another lethal option in their play action. The play action is going to be a big key in determining the success of Los Angeles, as Gurley and Anderson could confuse the Patriots’ defense and give enough time for Rams quarterback Jared Goff to find his targets downfield.

The Rams are 4-0 ATS in their last four games.

Writer’s Prediction

Rams win, 31-27, robbing the Patriots of a full-circle fairytale ending.
