Rams vs. Bengals odds, line, spread: 2022 Super Bowl picks, predictions, bets by computer model on 137-97 run

Tom Brady joined Trent Dilfer (Baltimore, 2000) as the only starting quarterbacks to win a Super Bowl in their first year with their team when he led Tampa Bay to the title last year. Matthew Stafford hopes to become a member of the group when he leads the Los Angeles Rams (15-5) against the Cincinnati Bengals (13-7) in the 2022 Super Bowl on Sunday. The 33-year-old Stafford, who spent 12 seasons with Detroit after being drafted first overall in 2009, was acquired in a trade last March and had helped get the Rams to their second Super Bowl in four years.

Why the Rams can cover

Stafford had one of the best seasons in the NFL in 2021, finishing third in the league with 4,886 passing yards and second with a career high-tying 41 touchdown tosses. In helping Los Angeles reach Super Bowl 56, he completed 72 percent of his pass attempts for 905 yards and six TDs, throwing two in each game. With another pair on Super Bowl Sunday, he will join Kurt Warner (2008), Joe Flacco (2012) and Tom Brady (2020) as the only players in NFL history with at least two scoring passes in four contests during the same postseason.

The Rams have a pair of excellent receivers for Stafford in Cooper Kupp and Odell Beckham Jr., with the latter coming aboard in November after being released by Cleveland. Kupp led the NFL during the regular season in receptions (145), receiving yards (1,947) and touchdown catches (16) before hauling in 25 passes for 386 yards and four TDs in the 2022 NFL playoffs. Beckham has 19 catches for 236 yards and a score in the postseason after having 27 receptions for 305 yards and five touchdowns in eight regular-season contests.

Why the Bengals can cover

Los Angeles has one of the most fearsome pass-rushes in the NFL, but Cincinnati’s defense also is capable. The Bengals have a league-high six interceptions in the 2022 NFL playoffs and share the best turnover differential at plus-five. Their eight sacks are the third-most, with Sam Hubbard tied for second with three and fellow defensive end Trey Hendrickson, who was fifth during the regular season with a career-best 14, right behind him with 2.5.

Linebacker Logan Wilson leads all players this postseason with 30 tackles. The 25-year-old also has picked off a pass after leading Cincinnati with four interceptions in the regular season, his second after being selected in the third round of the 2020 NFL Draft. Wilson was first on the Bengals in 2021 with 100 tackles, including 57 solo, and registered a sack while appearing in only 13 games.
