The emergency of young stars like Joe Burrow and Ja’Marr Chase and the presence of Clairton and Pitt alum Tyler Boyd on the Cincinnati Bengals isn’t enough to sway the state of Pennsylvania when it comes to rooting interest for Super Bowl LVI.
Pennsylvania is one of 17 states that will be backing the Los Angeles Rams on Sunday, with the rest of the nation pulling for Burrow and company, according to a study of Twitter day by Betonline.ag.
Of course, the Rams have plenty of good storylines of their own, with Odell Beckham Jr. and Matthew Stafford finding success after leaving Cleveland and Detroit, and Pitt and Penn Hills alum Aaron Donald leading the defense.
Pennsylvania is joined in pulling for L.A. by California, Hawaii, Alaska, Oregon, Nevada, Arizona, New Mexico, Montana, Wisconsin, Arkansas, Mississippi, Michigan, Maryland, Delaware, Massachusetts and Rhode Island.
The Bengals are more popular in the rest of the country, with Cincinnati backed by 33 states, despite the Bengals being four-point underdogs in the game.
Who are you pulling for, Steelers fans?
