After a flurry of activity moved the Super Bowl 53 opening line from a pick’em to Patriots -2.5, the point spread has settled in at that number for the better part of two weeks.

Not only is New England favored over the Los Angeles Rams, but the Pats are also on pace to become the most popular Super Bowl bet ever tracked.

With so much money coming in on New England, the key question now revolves around whether oddsmakers will move the line to the key betting number of 3 to attract Rams bettors.

The Patriots closed as 2.5-point favorites, with an over/under of 56.
