As they’ve been busy writing bets and moving lines ahead of Sunday’s Rams vs. Bengals championship matchup, oddsmakers from around the country have chimed in with their Super Bowl 56 predictions.

While the market point spread sits L.A. -4, eight of the 15 bookmakers who participated in our predictions survey would be laying the points from the other side of the counter.

Only four see an outright victory by the underdog Bengals, who are +200 on the moneyline.

Eleven of our books see the Super Bowl staying ‘under’ the 44.5, likely the side of the total they’ll need Sunday.

Super Bowl Predictions From The Sportsbooks

Chris Bennett, Manager, Circa Sports Sportsbook
Bengals 18-16
“Evan McPherson scores all the points and the Rams stay home empty handed after mortgaging their future to try to win it all this year.”

Jeff Benson, Sportsbook Operations Manager, Circa
Rams 24-17
“Rams are the better team top to bottom, I think the experience of McVay and the ability to pressure Burrow is too much for the Bengals to handle.”

Bert Cirincione, Director of Race & Sports, Golden Valley Ranch
Rams 26-20
“The Rams defense is too much for Joe Burrow and the Bengal offense. After dodging a late comeback from the Raiders, a fluke interception to get the win against Tennessee and a Kansas City Chiefs’ collapse, Cinderella’s slipper falls off against the Rams. It’s a home game for the Rams, the game stays interesting for a while, but the Rams pull away late.”

Duane Colucci, Race and Sports Manager, Rampart Casino
Bengals 27-20
“The Young Gun Joe Burrow gets the job done with a late TD pass to Ja’Marr Chase in a really close game. Both defenses will be in the limelight in Super Bowl 56!”

Farrell Drozd, Hub Manager, USBookmaking
Rams 34-21
“Rams D is too strong. Donald, Ramsey are co-MVPs.”

Jay Kornegay, Executive VP, SuperBook Sports
Rams 34-16
“This matchup reminds me of the early 90’s. The physicality of the NFC is superior. I expect the Rams defense to overrun the Bengals O-line, put a lot of pressure on Burrow, and create some turnovers.”

Robert Kowalski, General Manager, Zensports
Rams 27-24
“Intrigue, suspense and an incredible comeback lead to a final minute FG by Matt Gay to win (but not cover) SB LVI.”

Seamus Magee, Sports Trader, BetMGM
Rams 27-13
“I think this is a big mismatch for the Bengals. The Rams front seven should have a field day with the offensive line of the Bengals. The Rams have too much talent at wide receiver for the Bengals secondary to keep up with too. Burrow is going to have to be truly special for the Bengals to have a shot, in my opinion.”

Jason McCormick, Vice President, R&S Station Casinos
Rams 24-13
“The clock finally strikes 12 on the CINderella Bengals as the Rams prove that DEFENSE wins championships!”

John Murray, Director, SuperBook
Rams 27-17
“The game will be decided by the Bengals OL and the Rams DL battling in the trenches. It could be a long day for Burrow if his guys up front can’t hold up.”

Adam Pullen, Assistant Director of Trading, Caesars Sportsbook
Rams 28-27
“If the last six games are an indicator, we’re looking at another barn burner. I give the Rams the slight nod in what I think will be a close encounter.”

Jay Rood, Senior VP of Trading, Bally Bet
Rams 24-10
“Burrow’s ring will come another day. Stafford proves he just needed a chance on a team with talent.”

Ed Salmons, VP of Risk Management, SuperBook
Bengals 24-21
“If the Bengals can win at KC down 21-3, they can certainly beat any Sean McVay-coached team and his brilliant challenges.”

Jeff Sherman, VP of Risk Management, SuperBook
Rams 24-21
“Staying on the theme that five of the last six playoff games have ended with a 3-point margin. The determining factor will be the Rams defense.”

Jeff Stoneback, Director of Trading, MGM Resorts
Bengals 20-17
“Joe Burrow adds to his impressive resume with another close come-from-behind (win) for the Bengals’ first Super Bowl victory.”
