The Los Angeles Rams have opened up as four-point favorites over the Cincinnati Bengals on DraftKings with Super Bowl LVI’s total being set at 49.5 points. Both the AFC and NFC conference championships went down to the wire on Sunday, with the Bengals sneaking past the Kansas City Chiefs by a score of 27-24 on the road and the Rams beating the San Francisco 49ers 20-17 in a “home” game.

Los Angeles is technically a home team hosting a Super Bowl in SoFi Stadium, but if you got a glimpse of the crowd in the NFC Championship Game, or saw the home offense have to use the silent count, there were actually plenty of 49ers faithful in the stadium. It will be interesting to see how home-field advantage plays out in this matchup. Will Los Angeles rally around the event or will there only be a handful of Rams fans in attendance after the corporate-sponsored tickets are accounted for?


DraftKings has also opened up their NFL 2022/23 winner odds. The Green Bay Packers could very well be higher up on the list than most would presume, considering how strong the Aaron Rodgers-Denver smoke is swirling around.
