According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetNow.eu, the Patriots are 2.5-point favorites to beat the Rams. The total, meanwhile, sits at 56.5 points. As of this writing, 79% of the public betting tickets are on the Patriots to cover the point spread.
Chris Hogan finished with 35 catches for 532 yards and three touchdowns in 2018. The yards were the second-most of his career (he had 680 receiving yards for the Patriots in 2016) but the 35 receptions and three touchdowns were in line with his career averages.

Chris Hogan Will he Score a FIRST HALF Touchdown: Yes (4/1); No (1/6)
When the Patriots offense is firing on all cylinders, they’ll use their running backs to create mismatches against linebackers in the passing game and they’ll methodically move the ball up the field. Even though they wound up scoring a bunch of points against the Chargers and Chiefs, their game plan in those respective matchups centered on ball-control. Assuming they also try to play keep away from the Rams in Super Bowl 53, then I don’t see Hogan eclipsing his game totals and thus, I like the under for most of his props. Plus, if you go by his regular-season averages, the under looks like a wise investment across the board.
