Rams favored -4 in Super Bowl LVI after early line movement

The AFC and NFC Champions have punched their ticket to Super Bowl LVI on Feb. 13 at SoFi Stadium .

Now that we know the Cincinnati Bengals and Los Angeles Rams will be playing for the NFL Championship, the question that must be answered: Who is the favorite in the big game and what is the total for the contest?

BetUS was perhaps the first sportsbook to post the odds, and as America’s Favorite Sportsbook™ is the place to go for all the choices on the Super Bowl LVI betting buffet.

At BetUS.com, the line opened with Los Angeles a 3.5-point favorite with the total at 49.5. However, in a blink, the Rams moved to 4-point favorites and the total bumped to 50 points.

How They Got Here

AFC Champion: Cincinnati Bengals

The Bengals arrived at a Super Bowl berth by rallying from an 18-point deficit in the AFC Championship Game to defeat the Kansas City Chiefs, 27-24, in overtime at Arrowhead on Sunday.

Prior to that in the playoffs, the AFC North Champions downed the Las Vegas Raiders at home and went on the road to surprise the top-seeded Tennessee Titans.

The Bengals have been to a pair of Super Bowls, losing both to the San Francisco 49ers.

NFC Champion: Los Angeles Rams

The NFC West champions pounded the Arizona Cardinals in the Wild-Card game.

That earned them a trip to Tampa Bay, where they got a late field goal to douse the reigning champion Buccaneers in a topsy-turvy Divisional Round game.

In the NFC Championship on Sunday, the Rams rallied from a 17-7 deficit with 13 fourth-quarter points to earn a spot against the Bengals in the Super Bowl.
