Super Bowl NFL Matchup NFL Matchups

On our Matchups page, will find a list of games and critical Vegas data to help you analyze each game. From Sunday to Sunday, there are many changes to team matchups and vegas odds. This page is continuously updating and the matchups page will keep all the elements stored for your reference. We offer unique team ratings that breakdown into defense, offense, and overall team rating. We track the opening and live team totals, over/unders, and moneylines. With NFL DFS in mind, you can't set a lineup without considering what Vegas has to say. Team totals are a predictor in offensive performances, and we often look for both good and bad. Spreads can dictate how a game flows. If a team sits as huge favorite, a running back might get some more carries due to them being ahead in the second half. If you look into an individual game matchup, our odds comparison shows Vegas and Lineups numbers based on our algorithm. We have been tracking prior games, and historical data can help you with fantasy or betting. The interesting thing with NFL is digging into teams scoring tendencies. Bad teams will tend to rack up points in the second half, and if you are live betting or playing half over/unders, this can help.

Matchup Analysis

The date has been set for months, but we finally know who will be playing in Atlanta. New England will take on the Los Angeles Rams. The Patriots are 5-3 in Super Bowls, heading into their ninth one as a duo. Every game has been decided by one score, and the Patriots are not favored for the only time outside of their Super Bowl against Seattle. Both the Rams and Patriots were slight underdogs in the Conference Championship Round. New England opened as underdogs, but the line is going to move around over the next few weeks. Closing as underdogs would be somewhat of a surprise. Some lines have already moved to the Patriots as two point favorites, which makes more sense. We go back to the Patriots and Rams Super Bowl from the early 2000s, the Patriots were +14 dogs.

The over/under is sitting at 58, and likely won’t move much. There is no weather issues concerning the Super Bowl because they are playing in Atlanta where dome games typically produce for offense. Last season the Patriots-Falcons over/under was at 57. This is a very high Super Bowl total, and with these offenses is makes a lot of sense. The public is predicted to look at the over, as they have been all postseason. New England has averaged 39 points per game this postseason, and the Rams have averaged 28.

MVP Odds right now are leaning towards the quarterbacks. Tom Brady is an even favorite, while Goff sits right behind him. Both Gurley and Michel are next in line as MVP favorites. With the way Michel has been running through the postseason, he is an interesting name if you are looking for a high return. A flyer on one of the main wide receivers for both offenses could also be a way to attack these types of odds. The safe bet seems to be with Brady, as we usually see these awards go towards quarterbacks.

Some trends and matchups to keep an eye on are Julian Edelman against this defense. He can move around the field, and the Rams have allowed 83 yards per game to opposing WR1s, ranking 28th.The Rams limited opposing backs in the passing game to just 28 yards per game, and only six targets. This is a different task with James White in the backfield. On the other side, New England was pedestrian against pass-catching backs. Both teams were in the top half against the pass, but the bottom half against the run.
