Who would you think is the most backed team to win the Super Bowl this season? Shockingly, the Los Angeles Rams have been the most backed team to win Super Bowl LV, at a best price of +3300.
Despite not even making the playoffs last season, 33% of bets we've taken in the last week, on the Super Bowl winner, have been on the LA Rams.
It's not immediately obvious what is leading bettors towards the Rams, they're still in salary cap hell thanks to a number of expensive contracts including some like Todd Gurley, now at the Falcons, and a QB in Jared Goff who still has a number of questions marks around his game. Not only that but the NFC West is one of the league's toughest divisions, with last years Super Bowl losers the 49ers favorites to progress, the Seahawks and the rejuvenated Cardinals.
Despite those red flags there is still the allure of Head Coach Sean McVay who only two years ago was being described as being atop of the next great coaching tree, and a defense that is loaded with talent, and could carry the team a long way.
If the Rams bounce back and look anything like the team who reached the Super Bowl just two years ago, then the 33/1 price on them to win the Super Bowl will start to shorten very quickly.
