The Los Angeles Rams will take on the New England Patriots in the Super Bowl in the early hours of Monday morning South African time and we take a look at this massive event from a betting angle.

The Rams have had an excellent season going 13-3 in winning their Conference. They have been very strong offensively all season but it is their defence that could prove key against the Patriots and they will be looking to put pressure on the Patriots fullback, Tom Brady. The Patriots topped the strong AFC East Conference with a final record of 11-5.
Both sides required overtime to book their spot in the Super Bowl final with the Rams seeing off The Saints 26-23 and the Patriots holding off the Chiefs 37-31.
The Patriots have been priced as marginal favourites at 7/10 with the Rams 11/10 underdogs. The total points line which includes overtime is set at 56.5 and going overs would have arrived in the last two Super Bowls. I do fancy a high scoring encounter but this line is set very high for a Super Bowl Final and I will focus my attention on the match result instead.
Suggested Bet: Los Angeles Rams to win at 11/10
The Rams lack the experience of the Patriots but they are very well coached and I am backing them to close down the Patriots attack and to win what should be a very close Super Bowl.
