After an extra week of regular season games and continuous tough matches this postseason, the NFL season will finally come to an end when the Cincinnati Bengals meet the visiting Los Angeles Rams in the LVI Super Cup.
This week I gave a lot of advice and recommendations when it comes to player turns and game props markets on the Tipico Sportsbook. Now all the snacks are gone, and it’s time for the main course.
Here are my official choices regarding the spread, more / less and who will take home Lombardi’s trophy on Sunday at SoFi Stadium (starting 6:30 p.m .; reporting on NBC and Peacock starts at 12pm).
Spread: Bengali +3.5 (-105)
Cincinnati used to be in this place as it was an outsider in two of the three games of this playoffs, but still won. The numbers strongly support the Bengals too. Cincinnati has a perfect score of 7-0 in its last seven games against the Spread (ATS), returning to the regular season. The Bengals also have a 5-0 ATS in their last five games as an outsider and a 6-0 ATS against the team with a win this year.
If you’re leaning towards Bengals, it was very important that you get that number early in the week Sports betting game Tipico as it was at +4 or even +4.5. Although this post-season Cincinnati has started slowly, I believe that even if they don’t win, they will keep it close enough to cover that small gap.

Over / Under: Under 48.5 (-110)
As hilarious as Sunday’s shootout was, don’t be alarmed if the LVI Super Cup turns out to be below that overall result. During the Bengals ’magical transition from worst to first in such a short period of time, the undefeated juniors have gone seven on seven in the last seven playoff games, including the last four games. Anderdog has also scored 5-1 in Cincinnati’s last six games as an outsider and 5-0 in the last five meetings between the Bengals and Rams.
The most important thing is to bring the trends from previous Super Cups to make us understand. Since 2005, the total has averaged 50.4. In those games, the juniors have beaten in 10 of 17 games, including two of the last three Super Cups.
In my opinion, you have to kill these trends and the way both teams have been playing in huge defenses lately.

Currency: Rams -200
As much as I like to follow the trends mentioned above, that the Bengals were a team to “bend but not break” and never give up, it’s too hard to go against the Rams here.
Although Cinsy is an active team destined to succeed for years to come, Los Angeles is clearly in a win-win mode, winning now when taking veterans like Odel Beckham Jr. , von Miller and others. It would be a huge question mark – if the Rams hadn’t reached on Sunday – whether they have a chance to return to the big stage with an aging lineup and in the tough, competitive NFC West division. The Cincinnati defense has also done a tremendous job of limiting teams this postseason, especially at the end of the games.
However, I think the pressure in the Rams defensive line ahead at QB Bengals Joe Barrow and the combination of Matthew Stafford and Cooper Cooper will be too strong for them to overcome.
Los Angeles also has general trends in its favor. The favorites are the 3-1-1 ATS in the last five meetings, including the hosts 3-1-1 ATS in all five matches.
Give me the Rams to win their first in 22 years Super Cup in heavy, low turnover at SoFi Stadium.
Prediction: Rams 23, Bengals 20
