Vince Lombardi Trophy goes to Super Bowl winners
Will the Rams win the Super Bowl on Sunday?

If you think Matt Stafford and co. have got this and can win the Super Bowl comfortably then you can back the Rams -4.5 points at 9/10.

It's the Bengals v the Rams on the NFL's biggest night this Sunday and the team from California are fancied to lift the Vince Lombardi Trophy. Max Liu has the latest on the betting...

Super Bowl week is here and the LA Rams are the firm favourites to beat the Cincinnati Bengals in the NFL season showpiece on Sunday.

The Rams are 1/2 on Betfair with punters persuaded that they have what it takes to overcome a sprited Bengals team that have already upset the odds and defied the naysayers to get this far.

If you think Matt Stafford and co. have got this and can win comfortably then you can back the Rams -4.5 points at 9/10.

But Rams backers be warned. Playing at their home field - the SoFi stadium, in Inglewood, California - should be a huge advantage for the LA team but at 8/5 the Bengals will relish their underdog status.

The team from Ohio have waited 33 years since their last appearance in the Super Bowl. They have never won it so head coach Zac Taylor and his men know they stand on the brink of history.

This has been an exceptional season in the NFL with pundits agreeing that the latter two rounds of the play-offs were among the greatest ever.

In their NFC Championship game - the Super Bowl semi-final, if you will - the Rams were trailing 17-7 against San Francisco but eventually prevailed 20-17.

The Bengals' AFC Championship decider was even more dramatic as they came from 21-3 down to beat the Chiefs 27-24.

There is an enormous momentum behind both teams going into Sunday's showdown and a growing sense in both camps that this is their year.

By Sunday night - or let's face it, Monday morning on this side of the Atlantic - one team will be in dreamland while the other's dreams lie in tatters.

Our team of NFL experts will discuss who what they think is going to happen and, most importantly for us, recommend the best betting angles.

Mike Carlson and the rest of the NFL...Only Bettor podcast team will provide a Super Bowl LVI special later this week.

Mike will also be providing Super Bowl insight via exclusive video content on our social media channels.

On Friday we will publish his Super Bowl tips on Betting.Betfair - essential reading for finding the value on American football's big night.
