The Los Angeles Rams were a lot of people’s favorite to represent the NFC in Super Bowl LIII. The betting favorite for the AFC may actually surprise you.
This year’s Super Bowl will be held in Atlanta, Georgia this year, and there were pretty much a select handful of teams that experts predicted to be in the Super Bowl. The Los Angeles Rams, New England Patriots and the Minnesota Vikings were among the teams that people picked.
After three weeks of the NFL season the Rams look like they could just run away with the NFC, the Patriots are 1-2 and the Vikings just lost to Josh Allen and the Buffalo Bills. Just goes to show that you really can’t predict this stuff.
If you’re a betting guy then it might be time to put some money down on a couple of teams to go head to head in February.
As of Tuesday afternoon, the Rams and Kansas City Chiefs are the betting favorites to go to the Super Bowl. Obviously it’s expected that the Rams would be in this position, but probably not so much the Chiefs.
The Chiefs come in at 7/1 odds to represent the AFC in Atlanta. The Chiefs offense has absolutely shredded opposing defenses through the first three weeks of the season. Quarterback Patrick Mahomes made the Steelers defense look helpless, throwing more touchdowns than incompletions in their Week Two victory.
The Rams have the highest point differential in the entire NFL at +66. The next closest team is the Baltimore Ravens at +46.
Could you imagine this matchup in the Super Bowl? Offense sells in the NFL, and the way the rules are tailored to have offenses succeed this game could look those Clemson vs Alabama matchup from a couple years ago.
These two teams meet in Week 11 in Mexico City. Patrick Mahomes vs Jared Goff. Andy Reid vs Sean McVay. Sign me up!
