Team to Score First: Los Angeles Rams -101
My stance on this game hasn’t wavered since I last broke some props down in the first edition of this piece last week. I forecast the Rams to come out on top in a high scorer. Naturally, I have Jared Goff and company denting the scoreboard first to take the initial lead of the game. A tough sell no doubt with the Patriots scoring first in each of its last four games which included both playoff games against the Chargers and Chiefs. I honestly expect the Rams to hit the ground running and force the Pats to partake in a shootout. With that, I’ll take the near even money payoff and hope my expectations ring true!
First Score of the Game: FG or Safety +145
Just in case my premonition doesn’t ring true in terms of the team that scores first, I’ll go ahead and hedge with this play on a field goal or safety being the first points of the game. No, I don’t think either defense scores the first two points of the game. However, I wouldn’t put it past either Greg Zuerlein or Stephen Gostkowski settling the nerves of each of their respective teams by nailing a field goal minutes into the contest. In the two games LA didn’t score first in its last four games, the defense conceded field goals to both the Saints and Cardinals. The other two saw them put a touchdown on the board first. So, if LA goes on to score the game’s first points by way of a touchdown, these two plays will cancel one another out. If instead they only manage three, it will be a nice early payoff to give me even more bank roll to play with further into the matchup.
Team to Score the Longest Touchdown: Los Angeles Rams -122
The Rams are installed the modest chalk for this prop offering and rightly so. New England comes across as more of a plodding type offense that eats up big chunks of yards, and then resorts to its ground attack to ultimately push the pigskin across the goal line. Tom Brady’s longest scoring strike to date was of the 63 yard variety. On the flipside, the Rams offense is littered with explosive playmakers up and down the roster from Todd Gurley to Brandin Cooks to Robert White. Heck, even Josh Reynolds has some world class speed! Goff’s longest passing TD strike was 70 yards and the snake told me he’s going to better that on Sunday. I don’t question what the snake says. I just bop my head up and down and submit a wager at offshore sportsbooks.
Team to Score Last Wins the Game: No +183
The only vivid pic of the vision quest the snake bestowed upon me was one of the Patriots scoring the game’s final touchdown of the game. Immediately after, they lined up to go for two. Whether it was to tie the game, take a three point lead or pull to within eight wasn’t made available to me. I’m going to go with the latter option since I’m dead set on the Rams coming out on top at online Sportsbooks in Super Bowl LIII. With that, I’m throwing a couple shekels down on the last score of the game not resulting in that team going on to win the game.
