As you might have been able to guess, folks aren’t wasting any time in getting their bets on for the biggest game of the year in the National Football League: the Super Bowl. After some exciting matchups over the last month, Los Angeles and Cincinnati are all set to face off in the big game. With that said, Super Bowl bets are riding high for the Rams in Las Vegas right now, as they’re the favorites.
This might be a little bit of a disappointment for Cincinnati Bengals fans, as their supporters are hopeful that the AFC North powerhouse will be able to pull off an upset with the Lombardi Trophy on the line and fool people keying in on Las Vegas sports betting wrong. Keep in mind that the Bengals have been underdogs in back-to-back games, but they’ve won. For the Rams, they’re ready for home-field rights.
“I think it’s an unprecedented opportunity for the Los Angeles Rams,” Rams COO Kevin Demoff said via Brady Henderson of ESPN.com. “When you get a chance to play in the Super Bowl, that always helps win fans’ hearts and minds. When you get a chance to host a Super Bowl, that obviously helps elevate your brand, the SoFi Stadium brand, the NFL in Los Angeles as a whole.”
Because the game is being played on the Rams’ home field, it most certainly gives the team a bit of an upper hand. However, keep in mind that the Bengals just beat the Titans in Tennessee, while also beating the Chiefs in Kansas City as well. That’s much easier said than done, but the Bengals have surprised plenty of folks and they’re ready to keep things rocking in a big way.

Folks expect Matthew Stafford to put on a show in the Super Bowl
According to local reports, millions of dollars are indeed going on the Rams to win the Super Bowl. Why do people have so much confidence in Los Angeles to come away with a big win? Well, that’s because folks expect Matthew Stafford to put on a show in the Super Bowl when he takes the field next weekend. For Stafford, his first year with the Rams has been nothing short of sensational.
He had never won a playoff game before in his life, but that changed in the NFC Wild Card Round against the Cardinals. After that, Stafford has helped lead the team to big wins over the Buccaneers and 49ers. Against Tampa Bay in the Divisional Round, Tampa Bay was a big-time favorite and everyone expected Tom Brady and Co. to cruise to a big win. Instead, Stafford and the Rams won. Stafford is ready for the SB.
“This is a whole lot better than I thought it was going to be man,” Stafford said after the NFC title game win. “This is an unbelievable team, unbelievable atmosphere. Thank you guys for coming out and making it loud and proud! I’m so happy to be a part of this team. These guys, I’m looking at their faces, they put so much work into this thing. This is for everybody, I’m so proud to be a part of it.”
Those are the words of a man who is thankful he’s no longer in Detroit playing for the Lions. Stafford has developed strong chemistry with Cooper Kupp, Odell Beckham, and others, which is why the Rams indeed are in a strong position to win it all. It goes without saying, but people will keep checking the NFL Super Bowl odds and betting big on the Rams, especially with Stafford so hyped up to power the offense.

NFL fans are betting on the Super Bowl prop bets as well
As you might have been able to guess, NFL fans are betting on the Super Bowl prop bets as well leading up to Feb. 13. Every single season, the Super Bowl prop bets take center stage. While the commercials for the big game are fun to watch, people check out the NFL odds for the props and don’t hesitate in making wagers in that department as well.
These prop bets really are a ton of fun, as they vary from all over the place. To start things off, people always bet on the length of the National Anthem. People will quite literally have stopwatches out to time the duration of the star singer belting out the Anthem. Folks anxiously await to see if either the over or under for seconds hits on that National Anthem. That’s surely not all, though.
Soon after, people wait to see the results of the Super Bowl coin toss. Each winter, a large amount of money is placed on the coin toss being heads, while so many fans bet big on the other side of things and hope that things end in tails. Don’t forget about the celebrities that might show up to the Super Bowl as well. That’s always going to be a major topic of conversation. We can’t wait for the Super Bowl to get here.
