The Wildcat concludes his 22nd season in The Post. Including the 1997-2017 seasons in the Bettor’s Guide, Cat’s record in print stands at 595-498 (54.5 percent) against the spread.


Patriots (-3) over Rams (Super Bowl 53): The Rams actually opened favored — and Vegas is writing its share of Rams tickets for regional loyalists until this show gets underway — but the broad public hunger to back Brady, Belichick and Co. (with -2 ½ broadly available) appears insatiable. Though there was no league franchise which enjoyed an easier 2018 schedule than these Pats, especially given their epic annual head start as appreciative members of the AFC East, multiple experiences participating in meaningful February action has proven to be a powerful edge.

This favorite’s previous winning Super Bowl margins have been three, three, three, four and six points, with the last the end result of New England’s second-half rally from a 25-point deficit against the defensively modest Falcons. We’re compelled to string with the grizzled vets against youngsters Jared Goff and coach Sean McVay. Given New England’s sustained history of sluggish first quarters in this February pageant, the Over (56½) could be a stretch. Patriots pick up their sixth Lombardi Trophy, for one unit.

Championship Sunday: 0-1.

Season: 19-22-1.
