The New England Patriots and Los Angeles Rams both pulled off fourth quarter comebacks and overtime wins to punch their tickets to the Super Bowl. Considering how close their games were, the Vegas computers seem to think the game will be a close one too.
According to Vegas odds aggregate OddsShark, the predicted score for the Patriots-Rams Super Bowl matchup will be 25.7-25.1 in favor of the Los Angeles Rams.
It's an interesting score given that the Patriots are 2.5-point favorites heading into the game.
The scores are also lower than their average points scored per game, and higher than the average points allowed per game.
The smallest margin of victory in Super Bowl history is one point, which came in Super Bowl XXV when the New York Giants upset the Buffalo Bills, 20-19.
Super Bowl LI is the only one to ever be tied at the end of regulation and go to overtime.
The Patriots and Rams have both played close Super Bowls throughout the past 20 years.
Since the 1999 season, the two teams have played in a combined ten Super Bowls, including one against each other in Super Bowl XXXVI.
All of those games were decided by a touchdown or less.
