Thursday Night Football Gives Bettors A Super Bowl 53 Rematch

  • The Rams are favored to beat the Patriots in Week 14 with -240 odds and by a two-point spread.
  • Super Bowl 53 had their game total for points set at 53 points and the Patriots were favored to win SB53 by 2 points.

LOS ANGELES – Week 14 of Thursday Night Football will feature a matchup between the New England Patriots and the Los Angeles Rams.

This will mark the first time that these two teams are meeting since their matchup at Super Bowl 53 when the Patriots came out on top.

Rams Vs. Patriots

  • Moneyline: Rams (-240) vs. Patriots (+200)
  • Spread: Rams -5.0
  • Total: 44.5 Points

The Rams are going into this game seen as the favorites on NFL sportsbooks as they have had a much better season than the Patriots this year who have not been able to get over the hump of losing Tom Brady.

As for the spread, it is in the Rams favor but the Rams actually have only covered the spread in two of their last five games. The total for the game also seems to be a bit high as the Rams have only hit the total in three of their last five games while the Patriots have only hit it twice in their last five games.

A Look Back At Super Bowl 53

The odds for the game between the Rams and the Patriots have completely flipped a switch since Super Bowl 53 as the Patriots were seen as the favorites on both the moneyline and the spread.

Super Bowl 53 Odds

  • Moneyline: Patriots (-150) vs. Rams (+130)
  • Spread: Patriots -2.0
  • Total: 53 points

Aside from the Patriots hitting the moneyline and spread – as they won the game 13-3 – the game total going into the game was one of the highest in the history of the Super Bowl. Tied for seventh-highest total little did they know that the total wouldn’t even surpass 20.

As for why things have flipped a switch since then, the Patriots obviously lost their franchise quarterback in Tom Brady, Julian Edelman has been on the decline as well since then and they have also lost some crucial pieces on defense such as Kyle Van Noy, Malcom Brown and Danny Shelton.

On the Rams side of things, they have been good but definitely have not lived up to their 2018 season since then. They have lost some very big pieces since then on both sides of the ball as they have parted ways with Marcus Peters, Aqib Talib, Ndamukong Suh and Lamarcus Joyner on defense and Todd Gurley and Brandin Cooks on the offense.
