We have a matchup set for Super Bowl LIII. It will be the Los Angeles Rams against the New England Patriots.
The Patriots just took care of the Kansas City Chiefs in a thrilling 37-31 overtime classic. Rex Burkhead scored the game-winning touchdown on the ground after Tom Brady, Julian Edelman and Rob Gronkowski took New England downfield through the air.
The Rams won their own overtime nailbiter in New Orleans earlier this afternoon, topping the No. 1 seed Saints 26-23. Greg Zuerlein’s 57-yard boot was the difference.
So now Brady heads to his ninth Super Bowl against the team he faced in his first trip to the big game. The Rams fell to New England back in Super Bowl XXXVI and are now on the NFL’s grandest stage for the first time since then.
An initial betting line was released for the game. Right now, the Rams are a one-point favorite.
Essentially, this one is a pick-em.
