While many sports bettors are spending the afternoon doing the last bits of Super Bowl research to make their best pregames bets, there is a whole other lane of wagering to tackle.

Once the game kicks off so does all the action that comes with live betting games at WynnBET Sportsbook. Unless you hate excitement, in-game wagering on the Super Bowl is extremely entertaining and a great place to add some extra profit to your bankroll. With that in mind, I wanted to take a look at a few trends that can be applied to live betting along with the scenarios to watch out for. 

Bet the UNDER If the Rams Take an Early Lead

If either team comes out hot it will naturally push the total higher than where it currently sits at 48.5. But, the Los Angeles Rams have a habit of taking their foot off the gas when they play with a large lead.

L.A. is more content to control the game on the ground and slow down the pace. The Rams pace is in the bottom half of the league when they are playing with a lead but in the top five when they aren’t. What makes the UNDER even more tempting in this spot is the fact that the Cincinnati Bengals' pace is next to last in the NFL when they are down by seven points or more.

Couple all of this with the Rams defense and a weak Bengals offensive line and you get a recipe for a win. So, if the Rams go up by a touchdown or two early, I would pound the UNDER before the pace of play slows too much.

Bet the Rams Against the Spread If the Bengals Go Up Early

The idea behind this is betting against what could be considered a “fluke” start from the Bengals if they come out and grab an early lead.

Now, I realize that the Bengals are a Super Bowl team and wouldn’t be too surprised if they score a touchdown on their first drive (+300) or win the race to 14 (+150).

The thing is that the odds suggest against either of these two things happening. The Rams are -179 to win the race to 14 and the Bengals are -120 to punt on their first drive. So, if the Bengals come out with a lead, the odds to bet on the Rams are much more valuable than they were pregame.

The Rams have already come back from a 17-7 deficit in the NFC Championship Game and are a good bet to do it again should they go down early.
