Well, boy were we wrong! So much for our predictions of a Saints-Chiefs Super Bowl. We’ll be getting the exact opposite as the Los Angeles Rams take on the New England Patriots in Atlanta on February 3rd. Just goes to show, you can never count Tom Brady out! Hey, at least we got two drama-filled, overtime games this weekend. It was truly a day of quality NFL entertainment! If you’re thinking of going to the Super Bowl, we’ve got some great deals on Super Bowl tickets plus a few Super Bowl parties and even a pregame to round out the full experience.
Here’s our breakdown of this weekend’s incredible games, Super Bowl odds, and the current prices of Super Bowl tickets to see the Patriots and Rams in action!
The Case for the New England Patriots
Well, the theory that this weekend might well be Brady’s moment to pass the torch on to young phenom Patrick Mahomes was totally crushed in Sunday’s game. Instead, Brady scooped that torch up and led his team in an impressive, methodical overtime drive to victory. That makes four Super Bowls in five years for the Pats! (Shockingly, some folks aren’t excited about that prospect.) Sunday’s matchup was a wild, back-and-forth game, nerve-racking until the last moments and ending with a 37-31 Patriots’ victory. After the Pats won the coin toss in OT, Mahomes didn’t even get a chance to step on the field and help his team out. Now Brady is heading back for yet another Super Bowl and rumors are stacking up that this might be his last… if he wins, of course. Then he could ride off into the sunset, having solidified his reputation as the GOAT. To be honest, we think they’ll do it. We’d bet on the Patriots to win this year’s Super Bowl. Well, we wouldn’t bet against them at least.
The Pats unexpectedly fell to the Philadelphia Eagles and backup quarterback Nick Foles last year, so you never know what might happen! But it kinda just feels like the Patriots are going to do it again. Brady and Belichick have been to the Super Bowl a whopping nine times together. They won’t feel the nerves that a young Jared Goff and Sean McVay will no doubt feel.
But Could the Los Angeles Rams do it?
Never say never. The Rams definitely snuck up on the New Orleans Saints this weekend. Despite never leading the entire game, a 57-yard field goal during overtime was enough to clinch the Rams’ trip to Atlanta and smash the hopes of Saints fans everywhere. Yes, even amidst the incredible noise of the Superdome, Drew Brees’s arm wasn’t enough to take the Saints to the promised land. The Rams’ 26-23 victory in New Orleans will continue to be talked about for that egregious no-call by the refs, but it doesn’t really matter now because the Rams are scheduled to take on Brady and Belichick for all the marbles.
Odds via Oddsshark on January 21st:
|New England Patriots||-140|
|Los Angeles Rams||+120|
Can Sean McVay and Jared Goff stand up to the Patriots dynasty? Is Todd Gurley feeling his best? (Most people were shocked at the lack of playing time Gurley received against the Saints, but reports say he wasn’t injured, just playing “sorry.”) Will the Los Angeles team that the odds have favored for so long (and then not favored) pull it off?
There are so many uncertainties driving Super Bowl odds, which by the way, opened with the Patriots as one-point underdogs. That actually happened the last time the Pats played the Rams in 2001… which was, well, Brady’s first Super Bowl victory. Now it’s 17 years later and a new Rams team will try again. The line has since moved and the Patriots are slight favorites. Go figure.
Average Cost of Patriots-Rams Super Bowl Tickets
Are you thinking of heading to Atlanta for the Super Bowl? Well, now that we know who’s playing, this is actually our first chance to really test the market for Super Bowl 53 tickets. We’ll (sort of) know how many fans are really interested in attending a Super Bowl to get an idea of demand and prices. The average Super Bowl ticket price as of Monday morning was $7,939 while the cheapest “get in the door” ticket was $2,862.
According to some sources, it’s possible that prices will dip prior to kickoff, like in 2017 when the Pats played the Falcons and there was a little “Patriots fatigue” happening among NFL fans. Just FYI, last year, prices averaged around $7,277 but dropped as low as $5,339 leading up to Super Bowl 52 Sunday. We’ve got some cheap Super Bowl tickets available on Razorgator – they’re always authentic and you’ll always receive them on time.
