L.A. Rams +2.5 LAR +2.5 New England 13 vs L.A. Rams 3 2/03 NE 13 vs LAR 3 2/03 LOSS Sun 2/3 Whether you think the Rams should be in this game or not, you cannot deny the way they played the majority of the season. Yes, the defense took a step back from a year ago, but Los Angeles can play well when it counts -- and it is going to count in Super Bowl LIII. Even if the Rams are not able to take down Tom Brady, the Patriots' offensive line should struggle against constant pressure, forcing Brady to get rid of the ball quickly. The biggest advantage New England has in this game is Bill Belichick, and while I don't think Sean McVay is his match, he won't be intimidated into suddenly becoming vanilla offensively. The Rams are battle tested, and I love them with the full three points, which you should buy if provided the opportunity. Do I feel as good about Los Angeles as I did Philadelphia last year? No. But I'm probably also going to take the Rams straight up as I did the Eagles.
