When is Super Bowl 53? That is a question many folks are already asking – even those who aren’t particularly fans of the pigskin sport. For millions of football fanatics, the Super Bowl is the most exciting day of the season, even if their team isn’t in the big game. For others, Super Sunday is more about getting together with friends and family, cooking some good food and throwing a party!

After a day of dramatic endings, the Los Angeles Rams punched their ticket to Super Bowl 53 with a 26-23 overtime win against the New Orleans Saints. The game had a bit of controversy at the end when an obvious pass interference call was not called on the Los Angeles Rams.

Nevertheless, the Rams are heading to the big game in two weeks.

In the late game, the New England Patriots beat the Kansas City Chiefs 37-31 in overtime. Tom Brady and the Patriots outlasted Kansas City completing the road sweep in Sunday's title games.

When is the big game?

According to NJ.com, the 2019 Super Bowl will take place in Atlanta, Georgia on February 3 at the Mercedes-Benz Stadium. The game will feature the AFC champion New England Patriots taking on the Los Angeles Rams. This is the second time these two will meet up to decide an NFL championship.

Back on February 3, 2002, Tom Brady led the Patriots to a dramatic last-second 20-17 win over the then St. Louis Rams. Will history repeat itself 17 years later, or will the Rams win this time around?

Only time will tell that answer!

Early odds

Wagering on the Super Bowl has changed dramatically over the last 50-plus years. Back in 1967 when the Green Bay Packers defeated the Kansas City Chiefs 35-10 in Super Bowl I, gambling on sports wasn’t quite yet legal at the time. Add to that, the TV ratings were low and the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum was half-filled at best.

Not many fans knew if the Super Bowl would survive.

Fast forward to today, and the Super Bowl is not only one of the biggest sporting events in the world, but it is also the most wagered upon as well. An estimated $500 million or more may be placed on this game, and the point spread is a big factor why.

Early oddsmakers have the Los Angeles Rams as a 1.5 favorite, which makes it basically a pick'em game.
