When is Super Bowl 2019? Date, location, odds for Super Bowl 53
The Super Bowl in 2019 will have a similar feel to that of the last year’s Super Bowl … in terms of the host venue, but not necessarily the host city. Super Bowl 53 will take place in Atlanta at Mercedes-Benz Stadium. Like U.S. Bank Stadium, the building that hosted last year’s Super Bowl, Mercedes-Benz Stadium is a brand new facility that happens to feature a giant glass wall. And while weather again will not be a factor in an indoor stadium for the Super Bowl in 2019, attendees will appreciate warmer temperatures outside the venue.
Those who travel from Los Angeles will appreciate that climate. The Rams beat the Saints in the NFC championship game on Sunday to advance to Super Bowl 53. They will play the Patriots, who beat the Chiefs later Sunday in the AFC championship game.

Where is Super Bowl 2019?
Super Bowl 53 will take place at Atlanta’s Mercedes-Benz Stadium, a one-of-a-kind venue and home to the NFL’s Atlanta Falcons.
Completed just in time for the 2017 football season, Mercedes-Benz Stadium seats 71,000 people but can expand to seat more than 80,000. It’s equipped with a uniquely designed retractable roof, which, if closed, hopefully won’t be leaking by the time the Super Bowl arrives in 2019.
When the venue was being built, reasonable stadium food prices were touted as revolutionary, and sure enough, Falcons concession revenue went up in the stadium’s first year. Yes, the building located in the heart of Atlanta has a Chick-fil-A inside. No, there is no word on whether it will be open on Super Bowl Sunday.

Mercedes-Benz Stadium was built next to the Georgia Dome, which was demolished in November.
Super Bowl 53 will mark the third time Atlanta has hosted the game. The previous two (1994 and 2000) took place in the Georgia Dome.

Super Bowl 2019 odds
The Patriots were entering a Super Bowl as underdogs for the first time since, ironically, they played the Rams in a Super Bowl 17 years ago. Then they were not.
According to OddsShark (BetOnline), NFC-champion Los Angeles opened as a one-point favorite over AFC-champion New England in Super Bowl 53, set to be played Feb. 3 in Atlanta. Then, OddsShark tweeted later Sunday night, the odds flipped in New England’s favor.
William Hill US, which had the Rams -1 as a look-ahead spread, re-opened wagering on Super Bowl 53 as a pick’em (Patriots -110 vs. Rams -110).
According to OddsShark, the over/under for Super Bowl 53 was set at 57.5 points. William Hill opened at 58.5. Westgate Sportsbook opened at 58 even.
The vast majority of the betting action was expected to land on New England, which, strangely for such a dynasty in the NFL, is no stranger to the underdog label this postseason.
