5 Super Bowl 2022 Betting Keys to Los Angeles Rams vs. Cincinnati Bengals 

The end of the 2021-22 NFL season is now inside of two weeks away as Super Bowl LVI in Los Angeles is now set. When the Bengals square off against the Rams, a new NFL champion will be crowned that hasn't won in more than 20 years.

For the first time in Super Bowl history, two 4 seeds will go at it as the AFC North Cincinnati Bengals will take on the NFC West Champ Los Angeles Rams. For the second time in two years and only the second time ever, a team (Rams) will be playing in their home stadium. Let's take a closer look at some of the keys to victory in the coming Super Bowl.

5 Super Bowl LVI Betting Keys to the Game

Joe Burrow Staying Upright

Taking 51 sacks in the regular season and 12 so far this postseason, the Bengals have gotten here in spite of their offensive line; not because of it. Facing one of the best defensive fronts in the league, at least slowing Aaron Donald and Von Miller will be critical for success.

Keeping Ja'Marr Chase Contained

Likely to become the first Wide Receiver since Odell Beckham Jr. in 2014 to win Offensive Rookie of the Year, Chase is a nightmare for opposing defenses. When the Chiefs shut him down last week, Tee Higgins exploded for six catches and 103 yards, so that option also failed.

Keeping Cooper Kupp Contained

Speaking of shutting down wide receivers, Kupp must be contained if the Bengals have a chance in this one. Mike Hilton will likely get the assignment. Kupp has been unstoppable every week of the season and it will be a major point of emphasis for the Bengals defense.

Matthew Stafford's Composure

Despite this game being played at SoFi Stadium at home Los Angeles, this will not just be another home game for Stafford and his Rams. We already saw some questionable decision-making late vs. the 49ers, when Jaquiski Tartt dropped a sure-fire interception late as Stafford threw in double-coverage with the game on the line.

The game will likely be schemed around him, the question is can he deliver one final time on the biggest stage of them all.

Sean McVay's Game Plan

He's already got to this game and failed to adjust under the bright lights once, will he do it again? McVay is on record saying so of his loss in Super Bowl LIII to the Patriots, and that will be a key question as the Bengals will surely do the unpredictable in this one.

That was the same offense that averaged 32.9 points per game in the regular season, only to put up 3 in the Super Bowl.
