Superbowl LVI Betting

This year's Super Bowl is nearly upon us! The Los Angeles Rams hunt for their Hollywood season finale against Cincinnati Bengals. The Bengals came into this season as major underdogs considering they'd finished bottom of the AFC North four years in a row. However, they've shown an ability to fight amongst the very best in the NFL this season, beating the Kansas City Chiefs twice; that being said, they've also lost twice to the Cleveland Browns, showing the inconsistency that the side still possesses. The Rams, on the other hand, have been relatively solid this season, they had an awful November period but aside from that month, they've been dominant in the league this season. That dominance is demonstrated in this seasons Super Bowl odds.

Route to SuperBowl LVI: Cincinnati Bengals

The Bengals started their season with a win after rookie Ewan McPherson followed up an excellent 53-yard field goal with a 32-yard field goal in overtime to give the Bengals a victory over the Minnesota Vikings. However, this was followed up by a disappointing result against the Chicago Bears due to a slow start to the game. It was their reaction to this that impressed fans, with 4 wins in their next five games, including a win against the Pittsburgh Steelers. Unfortunately, their good run of form came to an end against the New York Jets and Cleveland Browns, both of whom were underdogs against the Bengals. The second period of the season came after their BYE in week 10. Following their BYE, the Bengals picked up an impressive victory against the Las Vegas Raiders and a second victory against the Steelers. Following this, they suffered dismal defeat to the Los Angeles Chargers where they conceded 33 points in just two quarters before another defeat to the 49ers left the Bengals 7-6, knowing they faced minnows Denver Broncos and Baltimore Ravens in their next two games. They won both games and went on to beat the Kansas City Chiefs after coming back from 28-14 down to win 34-31. This was their last game before their playoff games starting with the Wild Card round.

Wild Card Round

The Wild Card round represented a true test for the Bengals as they faced the Las Vegas Raiders, a team who had won four games in a row going into the wild card. The Bengals were favourites and stamped their authority early on before allowing their stern defence to hold out for the rest of the game.

Final Score: Cincinnati Bengals 26 - 19 Las Vegas Raiders.

AFC Divisional Play-Offs

Despite staying in the driver's seat for the vast majority of this game, the Bengals had to battle hard to get the win here. They took on the Tennessee Titans in a game where every time the Bengals went ahead, the Titans struck back. This continued until Evan McPherson repeated his opening day heroics with a 52-yard field goal to win the game for the Bengals.

Final Score: Cincinnati Bengals 19 - 16 Tennessee Titans

AFC Championship Game

If there was ever a time when it looked like the Cincinnati Bengals' dream of winning the Super Bowl would end, it was here. Kansas City Chiefs were the opposition and a Patrick Mahomes masterclass gave the Chiefs a 21-3 lead halfway through the second quarter. The Bengals then battled - winning 21 points without reply to lead 24-21 before a Harrison Butker field-goal took the game to overtime. What happens when the Bengals go into overtime? Evan McPherson, field-goal, Bengals win!

When are the Bengals Most Likely to Score & Concede

Quarter Points Scored Points Conceded Point Difference
1st 86 98 -12
2nd 166 134 +28
3rd 123 37 +84
4th 152 119 +33
OT 9 6 +3

What does this show us?

This gives us a good indication of how to bet on the Bengals. They're typically slow starters, score heavily in the second quarter before starting fantastically in the third. So, what this would imply for the Super Bowl is that the first points will be scored by the LA Rams.

Route to SuperBowl LVI: Los Angeles Rams

The LA Rams season started much better than many had expected. Betting markets had them as one of the top teams but very few expected them to beat 7 out of their first 8 opponents. They dominated teams such as the Chicago Bears, the New York Giants and the Houston Texans. However, their most impressive win during this run was a 34-24 victory over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in week 3. Their only loss during this period was to the Arizona Cardinals, the Rams started and ended the game strongly but the Cardinals scored a whopping 27 points across quarter 2 and quarter 3. Their fantastic run came to an end in week nine, where they lost to the Titans. They also went on to lose to the 49ers and Green Bay Packers in their next two games. Their run of losses ended with a 30-point win when the Jacksonville Jaguars travelled to Los Angeles. The Rams would then go on to defeat the Cardinals, Seahawks, Vikings and Ravens before losing to the 49ers for the second time in the season.

Wild Card Round

The Wild Card round of the NFL season saw the third match-up between the LA Rams and the Arizona Cardinals, with both teams sharing a victory over the other this season, betting markets were skewed between the two teams. By halftime, however, the result was beyond any doubt as the Rams led 21-0 and extended that lead to 28-0 before the Cardinals got on the scoresheet. The Rams went on to win 34-11 in what was, ultimately, as much of a one-sided match-up as you'll see in the knockout rounds.

Final Score: Los Angeles Rams 34-11 Arizona Cardinals

NFC Divisional Round

If you missed out on watching this game, we feel for you. The NFC Divisional game was without a doubt the most entertaining game of the season so far. The Los Angeles Rams came in as underdogs against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers but took an astounding lead of 27-3. Game over and Tampa Bay eliminated right? Wrong, the Buccs fought back scoring 24 points unanswered leaving the game tied with just 42 seconds remaining. However, the Rams rallied and Matt Gay's last-second field goal gave the Rams the victory in incredible style.

Final Score: Los Angeles Rams 30-27 Tampa Bay Buccaneers

NFC Championship Round

A victory over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers gave the LA Rams a spot in the Championship round against an opponent that had already beaten them twice in the season, the San Francisco 49ers. The first quarter was quiet and both sides were happy on the defence. The Rams struck first in the second quarter taking a 7-0 lead; however, the 49ers responded with 17 unanswered points. It looked like once again the Los Angeles Rams were going to lose to the 49ers. However, Matt Gay had other ideas with two field goals and a touchdown kick assist for Cooper Kupp giving the LA Rams the 13 points they needed to win the game.

Final Score: Los Angeles Rams 20-17 San Francisco 49ers.

When are the Rams Most Likely to Score & Concede

Quarter Points Scored Points Conceded Point Difference
1st 106 53 +53
2nd 244 134 +110
3rd 148 116 +32
4th 193 121 +72
OT 0 3 -3

What does this show us?

This shows that similar to their opponents on Sunday, the LA Rams start games off relatively slow and the feeling out process takes shape. However, when points are scored in the first quarter it's typically the Rams who do so. With 66.6% of points scored in the first quarter going to the Rams. However, if the game does go to overtime, it would favour the Bengals.

What is the Super Bowl?

The Super Bowl is an annual game featuring the best two teams from the NFL season. The season begins with a 16-game regular season before heading into a knockout format to crown the champion of the American Football Conference (AFL) and the National Football Conference (NFL). Those two teams will then face off in a predetermined venue for the chance to win the Super Bowl trophy.

The AFC & NFC are titled after the original names of their leagues, the American Football League changed to the AFC and the National Football League changed to the NFC, the two leagues would then merge to create the NFL.

Rams & Bengals Super Bowl History

Team Appearances Won Runner-up
Cincinnati Bengals 2 0 2 (1982, 1989)
Los Angeles Rams 4 1 (2000, Vs Titans) 3 (1980, 2002, 2019)

Two teams who have had an awful time in Super Bowls are this seasons final two. Between the two sides, they've won just once in six appearances. However, after the Rams fell short in 2019, we're guaranteed a fantastic story this season, whether it's the Bengals winning their first Super Bowl or the LA Rams redemption story. It is worth noting that if the Rams were to lose to the Bengals, it wouldn't be the first time they've been favourites and lost out. In 2002, the Rams were on the receiving end of a Tom Brady masterclass when they went from 14.5 point favourites to defeat despite a 14 point final quarter. This will be Cincinnati's third Super Bowl appearance and LA Rams' fifth Super Bowl appearance.
