Updated February 16, 2022
Things are all set for the biggest game of the year in the National Football League. That’s right, Los Angeles was able to win the NFC Championship Game, and Cincinnati stunned the Chiefs to win the AFC title to move on to the Super Bowl. In this article, we have NFL Super Bowl odds and picks for Bengals vs. Rams in what’s sure to be a great contest. Which team will end up taking home the Lombardi Trophy?
Rams are the favorites to win the 2022 Super Bowl
• What: Super Bowl • When: Sunday, Feb. 13 • Who: Bengals vs. Rams • Where: Los Angeles, Calif.
In what shouldn’t be a major shock, the Rams are the favorites to win the 2022 Super Bowl. Virtually no one gave Los Angeles a chance to win the NFC, as everyone figured it would either be the Packers or Buccaneers who would move on to potentially play in the Super Bowl. However, both those teams choked and now the Rams are one win away from all the glory.
The Rams have been on fire in the postseason. Folks are still talking about their upset win over the Buccaneers in Tampa Bay. As it turns out, that was the final game for Tom Brady, as he announced his retirement from the NFL on Tuesday. For Los Angeles, they then followed things up with a win over the 49ers in the NFC Championship Game. That one was a thriller, with the Rams being able to pull things off late.
Meanwhile for the Bengals, this season has been nothing short of incredible for the AFC North team. After beating the Raiders in the Wild Card Round, Cincy then beat Tennessee in the Divisional Round. They were underdogs going up against the Chiefs in the AFC title game. Just like the Rams, no one thought the Bengals would be able to get the job done here. Talk about a total surprise.
According to the best rated online sportsbooks, the Rams are indeed the favorites to win it all. LA holds -198 NFL Las Vegas odds. Meanwhile, for the Bengals, they’ve been set at +166. As you can see, countless folks believe the Rams will be the ones to win the Super Bowl and the early bets are coming in heavy on Matthew Stafford and Co. Believe it or not, though, we’re not going with the Rams to come out on top.
The Bengals are our pick to win the Super Bowl this year
In what’s been a wild year in the NFL, we’re continuing that trend as we’re going with the Bengals as our pick to win the Super Bowl this year. Time and time again, Cincinnati has been able to prove their doubters wrong and we think they most definitely have what it takes to do this one more time in the Super Bowl going up against the LA Rams. All eyes will be on the offense.
It goes without saying, but the Bengals will need star quarterback Joe Burrow to play his best in the Super Bowl. The LA defense is incredibly impressive, with guys like Von Miller and Aaron Donald ready to put pressure on Burrow from start to finish. However, Burrow showcased great escape abilities vs. the Chief. Can we expect more from him in that department against the Rams? Burrow sure is ready for the challenge.
“I wouldn’t call it surreal,” Burrow said after the win over KC. ‘I’d say it’s exciting. I think if you would’ve told me before the season started that we’d be going to the Super Bowl, I probably would’ve called you crazy, but then we played a whole season and nothing surprises me now. I know the kind of guys that we have and the team that we have. There’s still one left and we’re excited about this one.”
Now, Burrow, Ja’Marr Chase, Joe Mixon and others will hope to put up a huge performance against the Rams. The Cincy defense will have its hands full going up against Stafford, Odell Beckham, Cooper Kupp and others as well, but they sure have a chance. We think the Bengals will find a way to pull off an unforgettable win. Agree with us? Check out our NFL betting sites and place a wager.
With these stacked offenses, the over should hit between the Bengals and Rams later this month. Both of these teams have strong defenses, but you simply can’t forget about all of the offensive talent on the field. In the AFC Championship Game between the Chiefs and Bengals, 51 points were scored. Against the Rams, we can expect a track meet for the Bengals.
Some folks might be concerned that the NFC title game ended 20-17 (only 37 points), but we strongly believe that the Bengals and Rams are going to light up the scoreboard. The matchup between Stafford and Burrow should be electric. It’d be a total surprise if these two teams don’t exchange blows early on with some impressive drives leading to touchdowns.
According to the oddsmakers, the over/under has been set at 48.5 points. While that seems a bit high, especially with these two defenses getting better and better, we do feel confident that these teams will combine to hit 50 points in the Super Bowl. Yup, we’re going with the over as our pick, with the Bengals finding a way to win this one late as well.
