Super Bowl LVI Rams vs. Bengals Odds
Once in a Lifetime Chance for the Rams
The Rams are playing against the underdogs, have the home-field advantage, and have multiple other factors on their sides. One of them is Cooper Kupp, the triple-crown holder in the NFL this year (receiving yards, TDs, and catches). He is the absolute difference-maker on the field, and we haven’t seen such a dominant WR in the NFL for a long time.
The second is the All-Pro level defense, with Aaron Donald, Leonard Floyd, Von Miller, and Jalen Ramsey. We need to say that these guys haven’t been dominant as expected in the recent few weeks, and that at some point, they need to start pounding. Hard.
The Rams are a gunslinging team, that is, Matt Stafford imposed that identity, which was further cemented with Kupp and Odell Beckham Jr., who is finally playing at the desired level.
Rule the Jungle
Mr. Joe Burrow. Even though he is just a kid, Burrow acts as if he is one of the veterans on the field. The composure and his focus on every snap are simply amazing, so it’s no wonder why the Bengals ended here.
We have to add that all the important players on the offensive side of the ball, Burrow, unreal receivers Chase and Higgins, kicker Mcpherson and Joe Mixon, all have under 26 years. That could be a minus, because of inexperience, but on the other side, that might be a big advantage for the Bengals, who have zero pressure on their backs.
Shout out to the O-line, that protected Burrow perfectly against the Chiefs, and even bigger credit for the defenders, especially cornerbacks who were all over the Chiefs’ receivers in the second half of the AFC Championship game.
Rams vs Bengals Head to Head

Super Bowl LVI Rams vs. Bengals Preview and Prediction
The line for the total number of points is set at 50, and for us, that is a clear over. Both teams have fantastic firepower and are better on the offensive than on the defensive side. That’s why we avoid picking the winner and concentrate on this.
Pick: Over 50 points
