Sunday is officially here, which means the Los Angeles Rams will finally square off against the New England Patriots in what is expected to be a Super Bowl 53 filled with plenty of excitement after watching how the postseason has gone so far for both teams. The Rams opened as a 1- to 1.5-point favorite before immediate public and sharp money made the experienced Patriots a 2.5- to 3-point favorite.
Atlanta is home to the cheapest NFL concessions in the league, and the prices haven't been raised for the Super Bowl. The Patriots have 36 players on their roster with 82 games of Super Bowl experience. He has won five total Super Bowls and has been named MVP of four of the Super Bowls.
Meanwhile, the over/under is set at 56.5 points, slightly lower than the opening line of +58 from two weeks ago.

Super Bowl Sunday should be pretty mild weather-wise.

They'll rely on quarterback Jared Goff and coach Sean McVay, the youngest Super Bowl head coach at 33.
