Super Bowl 53: Rams versus Patriots, Betting Odds, Point Spread and Tv Info

The New England Patriots (11-5) and the St. Louis Rams (13-3) will face one another in the final game of the season, Super Bowl 53.

Sunday’s game is a match-up of the old guard, the Patriots who will make their third straight appearance in the game, and the new power, a Rams team that has exceeded expectations quickly. The match-up between the Rams and Patriots is scheduled to kickoff around 6:30 pm ET on Sunday. CBS has coverage of this event which will feature Maroon 5 performing at Halftime from Mercedes Benz Stadium in Atlanta, GA.

Excitement for this game has been brewing since both teams outlasted their opponents in their conference championship games which went to overtime.

The Odds: The Patriots are a 2.5 point favorite against the Rams. The over/over for the Super Bowl in 56.5 total points.

Patriots quarterback Tom Brady made headlines earlier in the week when he said that there was zero change this would be his last game. So any thoughts of Brady hanging up his cleats after Sunday’s game can be tossed aside. The Rams were the first team Brady defeated in a Super Bowl back in Super Bowl 36 after Adam Vinatieri kicked a game winning field goal in a 20-17 win. At that time the Rams were the dominant team and the Patriots were the upstart. My, how things have changed.
