With Championship Sunday complete, the question about Super Bowl tickets becomes: How low will they go? Historically, the average asking price for Super Bowl tickets on the secondary market has reached a peak on or around Championship Sunday, only to fall, sometimes more than 30%, in the weeks leading up the game before rebounding during the final few days.

Super Bowl LIII , which will pit overtime winners the New England Patriots and Los Angeles Rams, is set for February 3 at Atlanta's Mercedes-Benz Stadium. The average asking price on the secondary market for tickets sat at $8,130 after the AFC and NFC championships were complete on Sunday, but had fallen to $7,939 by Monday morning, and dropped again to $7,125 on Tuesday morning according to secondary ticket marketplace TicketIQ.com .

The picture currently being painted better resembles the situation around Super Bowl LI, but the last two years offer some insight into as to when the best time to buy tickets will be.

If the last two Super Bowls are any indication, fans wanting to get the best price should exercise patience. In 2017, when the Patriots beat the Atlanta Falcons in overtime at Houston, tickets were trending at $6,045 and 1,231 tickets remained on the secondary market on Championship Sunday, according to TicketIQ.com. The average asking price dipped to its lowest, $3,764, five days before the game, marking a 37% drop. The game-day average was $5,449.

The trend was similar last year, when the Philadelphia Eagles beat the Patriots in Minneapolis. On Championship Sunday, the average asking price was $9,207 and 934 tickets remained, but the average asking price dropped to as low as $5,339 six days before kickoff, a 42% drop. The game-day price was $4,081.

Patrick Ryan, co-founder of ticket sales strategy company Eventellect, on Monday shared a similar take on ticket prices, tweeting that the game currently had a get-in price of $3,500, and while he sees that dropping ahead of the game, he doesn't believe it will go below $1,500.

As of January 21, there were 3,476 tickets still available on the secondary market, which is a jump of more than 300% over the 934 tickets available at the same time last year.

Over the last decade, the average asking price has dropped an average of 6.7% between Championship Sunday and Super Bowl Sunday.

The cheapest seats available with TicketIQ.com's Low Price Guarantee as of January 21 will cost fans $2,945 for seats in Upper End Zone 323, Row 23. The priciest tickets with the guarantee are in Midfield Club C112, and were listed at $12,618. Cheaper seats closer to the action are also available.

The Patriots and Rams have played only 13 times, and the Patriots hold an 8-5 all-time series advantage. The teams last met during the regular season on December 4, 2016, during the Rams first year back in Los Angeles after 20 years in St. Louis. The Patriots won that game, 26-10. New England also won the teams' only post-season meeting, beating the Rams in Super Bowl XXXVI.
