New England Patriots       

The below listed trends make it perfectly clear that the Pats are notorious for slow Super Bowl starts. Ultimately this is invaluable news when live betting on Super Bowl LIII. What this means is that you should certainly avoid taking the Rams early in the game (1st or 2nd quarter) even if they do look extremely dominant against New England. At the end of the day the Pats’ strengths lies not in a dominant start but rather in precise adjustments engineered by arguably the greatest mind to ever grace the gridiron. Likewise, we saw New England usurp the Falcons in the 4th quarter despite not delivering the best 3rd quarter in franchise history. There’s no sense beating around the bush: New England is one of the worst teams to bet against during live predictions. This is because Brady is just too good in the 4th and you can never rule him out. Nevertheless, you can still rake up value by betting on the spread or TOTALs early in the game!

Players to Watch: Tom Brady (691 passing yards, 2 TD, 2 INT), Sony Michel (242 rushing yards, 5 TD, 0 F), and Julian Edelman (247 receiving yards, 0 TD, 16 REC).

Los Angeles Rams       

The Rams have a tall order ahead of them but they look like they are more than ready for the task. All in all, the Rams have tremendous firepower on offense backed up by a talented and competent defense. While it’s true that Brady is great at making adjustments on his end, it’s also true that the Rams have some of the youngest and creative minds on their side of the field. At the end of the day this contest is like a chess match between two grandmasters. Albeit, the one on the Rams side is still a bit unproven. Leading up to the Super Bowl LIII, the spread and TOTALs lines have severely undervalued the Rams’ offense. Some of that is Los Angeles’ fault, since their offense hasn’t looked as dynamic in the postseason. However, with a week’s time to prepare for this matchup, you can bank on a jaw-dropping outing from the franchise once hailed as the greatest show on turf. And if you’re live betting on Super Bowl LIII, you can rack up that value by waiting to see just how good the Rams will be.

Players to Watch: Jared Goff (483 passing yards, 1 TD, 1 INT), CJ Anderson (167 rushing yards, 2 TD, 0 F), and Brandin Cooks (172 receiving yards, 0 TD, 11 REC).
