Conference Championship Recap
The Super Bowl matchup is set, and it’s very unexpected. The Cincinnati Bengals beat the Kansas City Chiefs in the AFC Championship Game. The Bengals were +20000 at the beginning of the season to win the Super Bowl. This was the same odds given to the Jacksonville Jaguars.
The NFC will be represented by the Los Angeles Rams. The Rams survived at home against the 49ers but could not cover the spread. The Super Bowl matchup is intriguing, but before placing a bet, we must look back at Championship Sunday.
Championship Sunday told us a lot about these two teams, and it will help us win money on the Super Bowl. Here is your Conference Championship recap.
Matthew Stafford, Aaron Donald Get Super Opportunity
The San Francisco 49ers had owned the Los Angeles Rams over the past few seasons. This was evident with games played in Los Angeles as well. Over the past six games in Los Angeles, the 49ers were 5-1 against their division rivals.
This domination came to an end at SoFi Stadium when the Rams pulled off a three-point victory. However, 49ers bettors who took the spread made money as they were +3.5.
The game also stayed under the total of 45.5 points. A lot of money came in on Los Angeles’ money line, which had very good value. It was -175 for the game, and they were clearly better than the Niners.
A $175 bet resulted in a $100 win, so it was a solid value. The Rams did not play well in this football game. They survived, and if they play like this in the Super Bowl, they will get beat. Matthew Stafford and Cooper Kupp were critical in the win.
The defensive line was also effective, but they still made way too many mistakes, in my opinion. This seems to be a trend for the Rams in big games, so keep this in mind when betting on the Super Bowl.
