Here's how the Patriots Super Bowl roster evolved around Tom Brady

Here's how the Patriots Super Bowl roster evolved around Tom Brady

Late last week, the New England Patriots were on pace to become the most popular Super Bowl bet we've ever tracked with 80% of spread bets against the Los Angeles Rams, according to The Action Network's public betting data.

Atlanta is home to the cheapest NFL concessions in the league, and the prices haven't been raised for the Super Bowl. The Patriots' first three triumphs, in Super Bowl XXXVI, XXXVIII and XXXIX were all by a three-point margin.

While the Rams are coming off a controversial NFC Championship win over the New Orleans Saints, the Patriots barely got by in the AFC Championship against the Kansas City Chiefs, but all that matters is each team managed to find their way to the Super Bowl in Atlanta.

Meanwhile, the over/under is set at 56.5 points, slightly lower than the opening line of +58 from two weeks ago. But they are also expected to take a conservative approach early in the game to give its players - many of whom are playing in their first Super Bowl - reps in the world's most-watched sporting event.

The thought of Bill Belichick and Tom Brady losing back-to-back Super Bowls is unnerving. All of the ads are pre-shot, so that when either the Rams or Patriots do win the biggest game of the year, the National Football League is ready to sell some merchandise!

- The big day has finally arrived - happy Super Bowl Sunday!
