On Sunday (Feb. 3), the New England Patriots and Los Angeles Rams will battle it out in Atlanta, Georgia. Super Bowl 53 will be the latest installment of the NFL's annual championship game. The winning team gets the Lombardi Trophy. While the current odds have the Patriots favored by two points or so, there are many other bets that people can make.

Two-point conversion success

SB Nation reported that this is the most popular prop bet on the board. Bettors are saying that there will be a two-point conversion in Sunday's game. It's got some potential, depending on the direction the game goes. In a major blowout, it might be less likely to happen.
