Only the Pittsburgh Steelers have won more, and the Pats can tie them should they come away with their sixth Super Bowl victory. For the Rams, this is their fourth Super Bowl appearance, with their only win coming in Super Bowl XXIV, when they beat the Tennessee Titans following the 1999 season.
Other Rams with a decent chance of winning the MVP award include C.J. Anderson, Aaron Donald and Branding Cooks. Wagering on on this game is expected to be sky high; perhaps record breaking.
The state of Nevada set an all-time high last year by collecting $158.6 million in wagers ahead of last year’s game, nearly 40 percent of the state’s total handle in February 2018, according to Nevada Gaming Control Board figures. This year expects to see those figures climb further north.
