Rams set as 4-point favorites to beat Bengals in Super Bowl

The Los Angeles Rams have been set as four-point favorites to beat the Cincinnati Bengals in Super Bowl LVI at SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, Calif., on Feb. 13.

The Rams, who knocked off the San Francisco 49ers 20-17 Sunday night in the NFC Championship Game, are four-point favorites at a variety of sites, such as Draft Kings, Caesars Sportsbook and Fan Duel. BetMGM set the line at 3 1/2 points.

The Bengals, who as seven-point underdogs rallied from 18 points down to upset the host Kansas City Chiefs 27-24 in overtime in the AFC Championship Game earlier Sunday, have been the underdogs in two of their three playoff games.

The AFC North champs defeated the Las Vegas Raiders in the wild-card round as six-point favorites and were three-point underdogs before toppling the top-seeded Tennessee Titans in the divisional round.

The NFC West champion Rams were three-point favorites over the Arizona Cardinals, two-point underdogs to the defending Super Bowl champ Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and 3 1/2-point favorites over the 49ers.

While the Bengals have covered throughout the postseason, they were only 10-7 against the spread in the regular season, according to The Athletic. The Rams went 8-9 against the spread during the regular season and are 2-1 in the playoffs.

The Bengals, who went 4-11-1 last season and finished last in their division, were listed at +10,000 to win the Super Bowl before this season began, according to odds website The Lines.

Among seven betting websites, four set the Super Bowl total at 49 1/2 points, while three others listed it at 50.
