SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, Calif. will host the 2022 Super Bowl between the Los Angeles Rams and the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday, Feb. 13.
Interestingly, until last year no team had ever played in a Super Bowl hosted in its home stadium.
Now it’s happened twice after the Tampa Bay Buccaneers played (and won) Super Bowl LV at Raymond James Stadium, and the Rams are set to contest Super Bowl LVI in their home, SoFi Stadium.
SoFi Stadium, which is also the home of the Los Angeles Chargers, opened before the start of the 2020 NFL season and is certainly the latest and greatest among current stadiums across the league.
Does SoFi Stadium Have a Roof?
SoFi Stadium is very unique as it does have a fixed roof, but the sides of the stadium are open to the elements.
As a result, this venue can technically be impacted by wind, but it’s unlikely that breezes will affect the play on the field in any capacity.
With this in mind, bettors should ignore the latest Super Bowl weather forecast.
2022 Super Bowl Weather Forecast
The updated Super Bowl weather forecast is calling for average winds of 11-12 mph, but as I mentioned above, it’s tough to expect these breezes — which could certainly impact scoring at an outdoor stadium — to have much of an effect on Sunday. It should be mostly sunny with a high of 85 degrees, a beautiful Los Angeles day for some football.
According to live Super Bowl odds, the Rams are currently four-point favorites over the Bengals with the latest over/under sitting at 48.5 (click here for live NFL odds).
Fifty-five percent of Super Bowl bettors have taken the points with Cincinnati, while 56% of tickets wagered on the Rams vs. Bengals total have come in on the under.
