Super Bowl LIII is a (re)match between the Los Angeles Rams and the New England Patriots, who are meeting for the second time after the two met in Super Bowl XXXVI at the Louisiana Super Dome on the third of February, 2002. Perhaps more so than any other (at least recent) Super Bowl the game represents the old vs. the new and the new NFL vs. the old guard. The Rams are coached by offensive wunderkind Sean McVay, who at 32-years old is leading the revolution of young offensively minded head coaches that has swept the league in recent years whereas the Patriots are still coached by Bill Belichick, who along with Tom Brady comprise the longest-tenured head coach/quarterback tandem in the league. The question for the savvy gambler is, how important is experience in a game like this and is it something that can be quantified (at least to the level that’d help you earn a buck or two come game day?).
With that in mind… The Rams enter the game with a 15-3 record, 9-7-2 ATS and 8-9-1 O/U this season. The Patriots are 13-5, 11-7 ATS and 7-11 O/U. New England has the edge in the series, 8-5, winning the last 4 contests vs the Rams by an average of 20 points since 2004. In the 13 games in the series, the teams have averaged a total of 40 points. The Patriots have covered 5 of the last 6 games vs the Rams.
