It seems early Super Bowl bettors were impressed with what the New England Patriots and Tom Brady did in the AFC Championship Game. After knocking off the Kansas City Chiefs in overtime thanks to a stellar drive from Brady which was capped by a Rex Burkhead touchdown run, they were on their way to the big game. But they weren’t the early favorites, at least according to the opening point spread.
With a matchup between two high-scoring offenses in the Patriots and Los Angeles Rams set for the 2019 Super Bowl, it was the latter who was pegged as the early favorite. As Odds Shark revealed, the Rams were favored by -1.5 on Bet Online. Since that point, the line has drastically moved in just hours, with the popular belief being that Brady and company win yet another championship.
Let’s break down the latest odds and spread on the Super Bowl, as well as some insight into the matchup.
