Rams will get shut out in the Super Bowl can count on a big payday if that unlikely scenario occurs.Sports book operators William Hill and Westgate released on Thursday the hundreds of proposition bets they’ll offer for Super Bowl 53. Given that the game matches two of the NFL’s top offenses http://www.cardinalsauthorizedshops.com/authentic-zach-allen-jersey , the odds against either team being held scoreless are long.Specifically, William Hill set 250-1 odds on the Patriots getting blanked and Westgate had 300-1 odds on New England not scoring. Perhaps in a nod to coach Bill Belichick’s ability to out-scheme opposing offenses, both sports books put 200-1 odds on New England shutting out the Rams.By contrast, the Patriots get 20-1 odds of scoring 50 points or more, while the Rams are a slightly better bargain at 25-1 to reach the half-century mark. A word of caution to those who might be tempted: Only two teams have reached 50 points in a Super Bowl, most recently 26 years ago when the Dallas Cowboys scored 52.In New England’s eight Super Bowls with Belichick and quarterback Tom Brady, the Patriots have averaged 25 points per game, with a high of 34 in their comeback win over the Atlanta Falcons two years ago that went to overtime.Even the St. Louis Rams team dubbed the “Greatest Show on Turf” scored a combined 40 points in its two Super Bowl appearances, after the 1999 and 2001 seasons.Prop bets aren’t a big moneymaker for sports books during the season Gary Jennings Jr. Jersey , but they pick up popularity as the nation is intently focused on a single game.Not all of this year’s prop bets are confined to action on the field, of course. Bettors at William Hill can guess whether the Rams’ Brandin Cooks will catch more passes than 3-pointers made by Stephen Curry when the Golden State Warriors play the Los Angeles Lakers the day before the Super Bowl. Or those who prefer the other kind of football can guess whether there will be more sacks in the Super Bowl or yellow cards shown in the Leicester City-Manchester United English Premier League match earlier on Super Bowl Sunday.At Westgate, golf fans can wager on how final-round scores from Dustin Johnson or Rickie Fowler at the Saudi International and Phoenix Open, respectively, will compare with certain yardage totals in the game.This year will mark the first time bettors can make legal prop bets in states other than Nevada. Thanks to last year’s Supreme Court decision that allowed all 50 states to legalize sports gambling if they choose, William Hill now operates sports books in New Jersey and West Virginia that will also offer the full menu of prop bets.Hundreds of the prop bets involve performances by individual players — for example, who will commit the first turnover — and the NFL has argued those bets are too vulnerable to manipulation or cheating and should be restricted or even outlawed. ATLANTA (AP) — The Los Angeles Rams and New England Patriots are bringing two of the top scoring offenses in the NFL to the Super Bowl.The reason they’ve both played so well has a lot to do with the big guys playing up front.Los Angeles had the same offensive line starters for all 16 games and both playoff contests. Their consistency has been key to everything Rams coach Sean McVay does with a team that averaged 32.9 points per game, ranked second in the league.A line that has nobody who has ever played in a Super Bowl is being rewarded.“Having that consistency is big in everything we do,” left tackle Andrew Whitworth said. “We know each other very well at this point Phil Haynes Jersey , and that’s something that you can rely on when you’re in a tight game, when you need to execute at an important time in the game.”The line has been just as dependable for the Patriots.Tom Brady has not been sacked in either of New England’s two playoff wins, with defenses getting only three quarterback hits while chasing an offense that is part of a team averaging 27.3 points per game, ranked fourth in the NFL.It hasn’t gone unnoticed by the Patriots’ 41-year-old quarterback.In the days after their AFC championship game victory over Kansas City, Brady posted a picture on Instagram of his spotless jersey. He tagged each of his offensive linemen in the post, writing, “Not even 1 grass stain!”The last time Brady wasn’t sacked through two playoff games was the 2003 season, when he wasn’t sacked at all during the Patriots’ three wins, including their Super Bowl victory over Carolina.“I think they’ve performed incredible all year really Ugo Amadi Jersey ,” Brady said. “We really haven’t had many sacks this year and I think they’ve done such a great job protecting, and the run game, I think that speaks for itself. That was just an incredible effort last week and we’re going to need it again because this group is obviously exceptional at (the defensive line).“The D-line is certainly a great strength of theirs. We’ll be challenged. All those guys will be challenged.”The 37-year-old Whitworth is the cornerstone of the Rams’ offensive turnaround, providing brilliant blocking and steady leadership ever since he left Cincinnati to join McVay on the West Coast two years ago. He has started every game except one in the past two seasons — and so have left guard Rodger Saffold, center John Sullivan and right tackle Rob Havenstein.The Rams’ continuity on the line is remarkable in the modern NFL. Their only change from 2017 to 2018 was made at right guard, where Austin Blythe replaced the suspended Jamon Brown for the first two games of this season and played so well he never relinquished the spot.The Rams’ offensive line is a reliable barometer for the success of their powerful offense. When the linemen are playing well, as they did through the first 10 weeks of the season, quarterback Jared Goff operates smoothly behind his protection and Todd Gurley finds gaping holes in their opponents’ defensive fronts.When the line struggles, as it appeared to do at Detroit and Chicago in December Dwayne Haskins Jersey , the offense stalls. Goff was pressured 51 times in a four-game stretch late in the regular season after getting pressured just 78 times in the first 10 games, directly leading to the Rams’ losses to the Bears and the Philadelphia Eagles.“Everybody knows how much I love those guys,” Gurley said. “They’re responsible for everything. We’ve got the best line in the game, in my opinion, and they show it on the field every week.”New England lost two starters on its offensive line in the offseason when tackles Nate Solder and Cam Fleming left in free agency. But with Marcus Cannon and Trent Brown taking their spots, joining center David Andrews and guards Shaq Mason and Joe Thuney, Brady was sacked 21 times during the regular season, compared with 35 times last season.New England knows it will take a similar effort against a Rams’ defensive line that also features All-Pro Aaron Donald, Dante Fowler and Ndamukong Suh.Andrews said one of the things they are so good at is changing up things D.K. Metcalf Jersey , with Suh sometimes playing nose guard, and lining up on the edge other times.“Obviously they’re both dynamic players,” Andrews said. “Aaron Donald is the best defensive football player in the league, there’s no doubt about that. So it’s going to be a big challenge. We’re going to have to do a lot of things well.”
