The Rams have been a trendy pick to make it to the big game all year, and they made plenty of moves throughout the last two seasons to make people believe they were in win-now mode.
When last season ended for LA, they sat with +2000 odds to win the Super Bowl the following year. Those odds shrank monumentally just a few days later after a trade for Matthew Stafford was announced, bringing them down to +1200. On September 29, as one of the few undefeated teams remaining, the odds got even smaller, dropping to +700.
As the season went on there were some bumps in the road, two losses to the San Francisco 49ers and a streak of three straight losses in the middle of November. Right before they snapped that three-game skid, LA’s odds had dropped to +1200 and with an overtime loss in the regular season finale, their odds stayed at +1000 heading into the playoffs.
But once the postseason started they started to look better and better each week. Taking down the Arizona Cardinals with ease dropped their odds to +750. Then they hit the road to defeat Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in a wild game in the Divisional Round, dropping their odds down to a minuscule +200. Once they defeated the 49ers and their Super Bowl matchup was set, they saw themselves as the odds-on favorite to win it all at -190.
