Super Bowl LIII Team Prop Bets

You can bet that the officials will be very much in the spotlight at Sunday’s Super Bowl LIII between the Patriots and Rams from Atlanta. The refs were very much in the spotlight for both conference championship games for blown calls. An obviously missed pass interference penalty helped the Rams upset the Saints, and a ridiculous roughing the passer penalty hurt the Chiefs in a big way in their loss to the Patriots.

There’s going to be at least one coach’s challenge in Super Bowl LIII – hey, you can’t take the challenges with you so might as well use the red flag. That the first challenge is from the Patriots’ Bill Belichick is -120, the same price as the Rams’ Sean McVay. That the play stands is a -125 favourite – it has to be a crystal-clear replay for something called on the field to be overturned. A touchdown overturned by replay/challenge is +150 with no at -210.

The Rams had the second-highest scoring offence in the NFL this regular season and the Patriots No. 4. That the Rams score in every quarter is +140 with no at -200. They did in the Divisional Round win over Dallas but not in the NFC title game vs. New Orleans, trailing 13-0 after a quarter. That New England scores in every quarter is +120 with no at -165. The Patriots have scored in all nine quarters this postseason – nine because the AFC title game went to overtime. That there’s a scoreless quarter Sunday is +330 with no at -550. 

Both coaches can be aggressive when it comes to offensive play-calling. The Rams might lose the NFC title game if McVay didn’t call a fake punt on fourth down with his team struggling. That was converted and seemed to turn the tide vs. the Saints. That Los Angeles has a fourth-down conversion in the Super Bowl is -145 and that New England does is -150.

Will we see a successful two-point conversion? Without a couple of two-point conversions, the Patriots don’t rally to beat the Atlanta Falcons in the Super Bowl two years ago. The Eagles were 0-for-2 on two-points conversions in last year’s Super Bowl upset of the Patriots. That there’s a successful two-point conversion is +195 with no at -290.

Teams that score a defensive or special teams touchdown usually win said game in the NFL. That there’s one of either Sunday is +180 with no at -260. Both defences are given an over/under of 2.5 sacks. Los Angeles has the NFL sack leader in Aaron Donald, who is going to win a second straight NFL Defensive Player of the Year Award this week. He led the league with 20.5 sacks, a record for a defensive tackle. The Patriots had just 30 as a team, tied for 30th in the NFL. The Super Bowl record for sacks by player is three by four guys, including the late, great Reggie White. Could there be a safety? Yes is +535 and no -1150. There have only been seven in Super Bowl history.

Super Bowl 53 Team Prop Predictions

Rams have first challenge and it’s overturned. No scoreless quarters – both kickers are too good. Yes on a special teams/defensive score but no safety. Over 2.5 sacks for Rams and under for Patriots.
