The Los Angeles Rams were +1200 to win Super Bowl 56 prior to the kickoff of Week 1 in September. The Cincinnati Bengals were +15000. But they’re both just one win away from championship glory. The teams meet at SoFi Stadium on Sunday for Super Bowl 56.

The Rams are -4.5 in the latest NFL betting odds with an Over/Under of 48.5 points. We remember the thrilling Super Bowl finishes, but keep in mind if 4.5 feels like a lot of points, it shouldn’t. The last six title games have all been decided by at least six points.

Bookies.com NFL handicapper Adam Thompson has hit on a whopping 62.1% of his best bets in the 2021 NFL season, finishing over 60% in each of the last three seasons. Last year he accurately predicted a Buccaneers upset win over the Chiefs. Here are his four Super Bowl 56 best bets to make on your sports betting app:

Super Bowl 56 Rams vs Bengals Picks

Rams ATS over Bengals

These teams have a lot of similarities statistically, with the Rams having a slight edge across most instances. But break it down by matchups, and L.A.’s advantages are more pronounced. Their D-line should get to Joe Burrow and counterpart Matthew Stafford should get off to a hot start. Presuming they watched the AFC Championship Game, the Rams should keep the foot on the gas and not allow Cincy to get back in the game as KC did. (Locked in at -4.5 at DraftKings)

Rams-Bengals Over

These teams combine to average 53.8 ppg but allow a modest 43.2. This NFL line is the lowest Super Bowl total in four years. All those games hit Under, but they were all in the 50s. The Over has hit on betting sites in six of the last seven Super Bowls when the O/U was in the 40s. Each offense has matchups to exploit, especially in the pass game. Both teams are OK with putting the ball in their QB’s hands and letting loose. (Locked in at 48.5 at DraftKings)

Rams/Rams Halftime/Fulltime

The Bengals have been one of the top second-half teams in the postseason and own the NFL’s No. 1-ranked third-quarter defense. But there has been a lot of rallying after poor first halves. The Rams have one of the league’s top first-half defenses. They should get a lead at the break, and they should have learned from the Chiefs in the AFC title game what not to do once you have a lead vs. Cincinnati. (Locked in at +125 at BetMGM)

Matthew Stafford Over 1.5 Pass TDs

In 20 games with the Rams, Stafford has thrown under two TDs just four times. It’s only happened once in the last 10 games, a game in which he also had a season-low in yards and season-high in INTs. Cincy’s 27th-ranked secondary isn’t the type that can hold Stafford down to that extent. (Locked in at -225 at FanDuel)
