Although the betting line for the Super Bowl will most likely continue to shift, the latest change will have major implications on how people spend their money.

New England was originally favored by 2.5 points for next Sunday, but that line has increased in a matter of days.

Los Angeles might have more overall talent on its roster, yet the experience and discipline of New England could be the difference in this crucial matchup.

Well, it's clear that sports gamblers have way more faith in the Patriots than the Rams, as 86 percent of bets placed on Bovada are on the AFC champions.

The line has now shifted to -3 for the Patriots, which means it would require more than a field goal for them to cover.

One possible reason for people trusting New England over Los Angeles could simply be the difference at quarterback.

Jared Goff is really talented and continues to show improvement each season, but Tom Brady is just too great to dismiss in games of this magnitude.

The Super Bowl will take place on Feb. 3 from Mercedes-Benz Stadium.

Who do you think will win the Lombardi Trophy?
