CBS has the broadcast of this year's Super Bowl between the Los Angeles Rams and the New England Patriots.

Jim Nantz, Tony Romo and Tracy Wolfson will be on the call for the Rams-Patriots game on CBS.

Following Romo's epic performance in the AFC Championship Game, many are looking forward to seeing what CBS' lead crew has in store for the Super Bowl.

One topic is apparently off-limits, though.

There will be no gambling talk during the Super Bowl broadcast on CBS.

"Our policy is we don't discuss gambling information. That's our policy," CBS' Sean McManus said.

This is apparently a CBS policy and not something that the NFL has mandated. It's possible the policy could change moving forward. "McManus says decision to not do any betting talk during Super Bowl coverage is CBS', not an edict from NFL. McManus says they will re-evaluate policy in offseason," Traina tweeted.

The Rams and the Patriots are set to kick off at 6:30 p.m. E.T. on Sunday, February 3.

New England is currently being listed as a 2.5-point favorite at most of the sportsbooks, though one Vegas computer is projecting a Los Angeles victory.
