What are the odds for winning the Super Bowl LIII?  Bet on it! Shortly after the New England Patriots defeated the Kansas City Chiefs in overtime of the AFC Championship game, Las Vegas released their opening line for Super Bowl LIII.

Seconds after the line was finalized, the Patriots and Rams were a pick'em to win.

Money piled in on the Patriots, however, and the line now sits squarely in the Patriots' favour. After all, Tom Brady and Bill Belichick are practically unbeatable in the playoffs, and there is the strong possibility that the two concoct the perfect gameplan to defeat the Rams.

The over/under is one of the highest in Super Bowl history, as many are expecting a shootout between the two teams. Despite Tom Brady trying to tell us otherwise, both teams are loaded with stars. Tom Brady, Gronk, Edelman, Goff, Gurley, Cooks, Donald, Suh and Woods are just a few of the stars that will be taking part in Super Bowl LIII.

The LA Rams have a number of young stars that will be extremely excited to play under the brightest of lights at Super Bowl LIII.

The New England Patriots, however, are dripping with experience and have plenty of momentum after destroying the Chargers at home and getting past the Kansas City Chiefs on the road. Tom Brady continues to put together masterful post-season performances, which makes it very hard to bet against him at the Super Bowl. This is why so much money poured in on the Patriots shortly after the line was released.

McVay is a spectacular coach in his own right, however, and he will surely have a great game plan to deal with the Patriots.

This should be an absolute chess match, and I can't wait to see how things unfold.
