Cincinnati Bengals vs Los Angeles Rams in the Super Bowl on Feb.13 2022 – Odds & Prediction

Cincinnati Bengals vs Los Angeles Rams in the Super Bowl on Feb.13 2022 – Odds & Prediction

It’s time for the Super Bowl, the greatest show on earth!

Had anyone told you we would be sat here with the Bengals taking on the Rams in the big game, you would probably have laughed them out of the building. However, both teams have had periods of excellence during the playoffs and certainly deserve their spots in the final.

With a two-week break between the Conference Championships and this game, both teams have been allowed time to heal and get healthy.

Under 48.5 Total Points

If this was a game between two teams playing with confidence and in a relaxed environment, the over/under total would be set about right here. However, we are talking about a pressured environment, a first Super Bowl for both quarterbacks, and a higher likelihood of mistakes.

For the Bengals, young quarterback Joe Burrow was excellent against the Kansas City Chiefs, but showed he is nowhere near as good with pressure on him when he played the Tennessee Titans a week earlier.

Expect the Rams to put that kind of pressure on Burrow and combining that with his first Super Bowl game as a young player, he is almost certainly going to have struggles and not quite be at his free throwing best for the entire game.

Matthew Stafford is older and more experienced, but is also playing in his first Super Bowl. Stafford is known for putting in the occasional bad throw and given the pressure he is going to be under here, don’t be surprised to see that happen at least once in this game.

The Bengals defensive unit doesn’t have the same appeal as the one from LA, but Stafford may be able to slow himself down in this one.

A game with a few errors and a slow start is predicted, with 10/11 on under 48.5 points with bet365 appealing the most.

Cincinnati Bengals Form, Squad News & Opinion

The Bengals have beaten the Las Vegas Raiders, Tennessee Titans and Kansas City Chiefs to get here, which is a strong run from them, and in both of their most recent games, they were considered outsiders to win by the bookmakers, which they are again for the Super Bowl.

The first and third games they won thanks to great play by Joe Burrow. Against the Titans in game two, they won despite poor play from him after being sacked a total of nine times in the game. The Bengals offensive line needs to protect him better here, as it would be no surprise to see the Rams try and target Burrow with the same treatment.

Los Angeles Rams Form, Squad News & Opinion

The Rams have also played three games to get here, easily dispatching of the Arizona Cardinals in the first round, followed by beating Tom Brady in his last ever game and most recently, they edged out the San Francisco 49ers in a very tight game. In terms of how this game will be played out, don’t be surprised if it mirrors the clash between the Rams and 49ers.

With four touchdowns from three games and over 300 receiving yards in his last two games, Cooper Kupp has continued his excellent regular season showing in the playoffs. The Rams have a number of weapons, but when it comes to scoring, there’s no one they trust as much as Kupp. How he finds room on the field and gets free for Stafford will be a big factor in determining who wins the game.

History

Recent history is not too easy to come by in some NFL matchups and this is one of them. These two teams have not met for over two years, and both have changed their rosters significantly since then.

The Rams won the most recent game, 24-10 at home, but before that, the Bengals won three in a row. Overall, the Bengals lead the series 8-6.

About the Venue

For the second year in a row, the Super Bowl will see one team have home field advantage. After the Tampa Bay Buccaneers won in their home stadium last season, the Rams will be looking to do the same here.

This game will take place at the SoFi Stadium in LA, which is where the Rams play their home games, giving them plenty of familiarity on the field.

Conclusion

This game should serve up a close affair and there are two standout matchups that look set to determine the outcome.

The first, can the Rams get to Joe Burrow and slow him down like the Titans did? If he’s sacked regularly, the Rams can gain the upper hand with their elite defensive unit.

Secondly, can Cooper Kupp maintain his strong scoring for one more game, after an incredible regular season and four touchdowns so far in the playoffs? If he gets free and allows Stafford to find him, that will be a huge positive for the Rams.

Nerves will play a part, though, and that could lead to these two taking their time and scoring slower than we are used to seeing from them.
