In under three hours, the New England Patriots and Los Angeles Rams will take the field at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta for Super Bowl LIII.
Tom Brady and company enter the game as 2.5-point favorites after the opening betting lines favored the Rams. Las Vegas isn’t the only thing favoring the Patriots on Sunday night.
New England will have a heavy presence in the stands as well. According to David Chao – also know as the Pro Football Doc – there is an overwhelming majority of New England Patriots fans in Atlanta for the Super Bowl tonight.
He said it’s the “most lopsided I have ever seen.”
