The Bengals are a dangerous team because they have nothing to lose. Cincinnati is ready for the moment because nobody expected them to be in this situation. However, they have some problems when they line up against the Rams.
I think it’s going to be very hard for the Bengals to protect Joe Burrow against Aaron Donald and Vonn Miller. Yet, Burrow has received little protection all season, and he made it to the Super Bowl.
This is why the Bengals need to come up with a terrific game plan to win the Super Bowl. There are ways to take pressure off the offensive line, and it starts with the team’s defense. If the Bengals can neutralize Matthew Stafford, it will help Cincinnati’s play calling.
They will have tons of options and not be forced to solely throw the ball down the field. This should keep the Ram defensive front off balance.
If Cooper Kupp goes off and Matthew Stafford has time in the pocket, the Rams should win with ease and cover the spread. When betting on this game, the main thing you need to ask yourself is if you believe in Joe Burrow.
Can Burrow play well if he does not have much time in the pocket? If you are confident in the youngster under center, I would hammer the Bengals. If you think the Rams are the better team, and this is Matthew Stafford’s year, lock in Los Angeles.
Are you ready for the Super Bowl? More importantly, are you ready to bet on the Super Bowl?
The Super Bowl is one of the biggest betting days of the year, and LVI is going to be no different. The Los Angeles Rams will be the away team in their own stadium against the Cincinnati Bengals.
The Bengals were +20000 to win the Super Bowl at the beginning of the season. Nobody is expected this team to be competitive, but they went from worst to first. The team finished 4-11-1 in 2020 and are now playing for a world championship.
The Rams were expected to be competitive, but Green Bay was the main pick to come out of the NFC. Los Angeles did not have to face the Packers, but they went through the Cardinals, Buccaneers, and Niners to play in the Super Bowl.
This matchup was unexpected, but it does not mean that it will be uncompetitive. Let’s start breaking down the game.
