The LA Rams and The Bengals will meet at this year’s Superbowl (LVI) which will be coincidentally played on the Los Angeles club’s home turf.
The match-up wasn’t what most football fans were looking forward to due to the fact that last year’s finalist The Kansas City Chiefs were the hot favorites going into the AFC championship game. But the Cincinnati Bengals had other plans as they defeated the Chiefs 27-24 in OT to clinch a Superbowl ticket for the first time since 1989.
The Superbowl LVI is definitely an interesting matchup that sees two great teams that have what it takes to win it all. Top Bookmakers and Stakers have the LA Rams as slight favorites to win the Superbowl over the Cincinnati Bengals. The Bengals have found themselves all through the play-off season as the least favorite, so this position is quite familiar to them. They will be going into arguably the team’s most important game in the last few decades with the confidence they picked in their last two games. They defeated both the Titans and the Chiefs via a game-winning field goal. So, they shouldn’t be short of confidence.
While the La Rams will go into this game with a lot at stake. They have passed all the tests thrown at them during these playoffs and this last one will be the greatest test of all because it’s a winner take. Given that they successfully sent the recently retired Tom Brady and the Buccaneers home, I feel they have what it takes to dig deep and win it all as long as their Number one target Cooper Kupp keeps doing what he has been doing during these playoffs. The Los Angeles club has a lot of weapons at its disposal, so this shouldn’t be a problem. The Rams will be looking to win their only second Super Bowl championship, having won it in 2000.
The Bengals, on the other hand, have been to three Super Bowls including the upcoming one, unfortunately, haven’t won a Superbowl yet. So, who knows maybe the drought might be over? One thing for sure is no matter the circumstance comes to the end of the game; The Bengals would have over-achieved this season because not even the most devoted fan would have thought that they would be going to this year’s Super Bowl.
The game is slated for the 14th February at 00.30 Central European Time.
