Super Bowl 2022 live updates: Rams vs. Bengals start time, odds, news, channel, analysis ahead of NFL championship game
You may be a surgical against the spread, a money line maestro or a props prodigy player, but there will always be a number of variables in betting that we cannot control, regardless of research or what what we think we know. A big talking point for the Super Bowl is usually the weather, at least when it’s not in a dome.
Except this year’s game isn’t in a dome, is it? Technically not, but clearly our word isn’t going to deter everyone from thinking so.
The game is usually played in warmer climates, although it has also been played indoors 20 times in 55 years. SoFi Stadium has won the right to host Super Bowl LVI, though this year’s contest could set records for the highest kickoff temperature in Super Bowl history. On February 9, AccuWeather reported a rare heat advisory in Los Angeles, with start-up temperatures reaching 90 degrees Fahrenheit. For reference, this time of year in Los Angeles tends to be in the mid-60s.
So how does this affect the game? Fair question. It probably won’t. SoFi Stadium is an indoor-outdoor venue. Its large canopy encompasses the pitch and while the sides remain open, the arena is able to maintain a decent internal temperature. It can get a little warm at pitch level with the turf if the temperatures continue to climb.
