Super Bowl 56: Los Angeles Rams are on the right side of history with the white uniforms

Do you believe in superstitions? If so, bet on the Los Angeles Rams to win Super Bowl 56 over the Cincinnati Bengals.

Never mind that the game is being played in SoFi Stadium, the home of the Rams, which basically makes it a home game for them. Never mind that the Rams are a four-point favorite.

On Sunday’s game, the Rams will be wearing the white uniforms, while the Bengals are wearing the black top uniforms.

Since Super Bowl 39 played in February of 2005, all but three teams wearing the white uniforms won the game.

The three teams who didn’t:

Super Bowl 45, the Green Bay Packers.

Super Bowl 52, the Philadelphia Eagles.

Super Bowl 54, the Kansas City Chiefs.

14 teams out of 17 wearing white have won the Super Bowl since 2005. Even Tom Brady lost a couple of these games, especially during a perfect season.

Look at Tom Brady’s last several Super Bowls:

Five out of the last eight Super Bowls that Tom Brady won were wearing the white; he lost one while in the white jerseys to the Eagles.

So if you firmly believe in this kind of thing, pick the Rams to win, because the power of the white jerseys is on their side.
