Super Bowl 56 Best Prop Bets

Super Bowl 56 could serve as the coronation of the Los Angeles Rams' super team.

The Rams added Matthew Stafford, Odell Beckham Jr. and Von Miller among others in the last 12 months as the final pieces for their championship hunt.

All three of those players will be vital to the Rams' success against the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday night inside Sofi Stadium.

You can already see by the first three lines of this article which way I'm leaning when it comes to the spread. I think the Rams win the game by at least one touchdown.

But that doesn't mean I can't bet on certain Bengals props. Let's be honest, betting a one-sided set of props for the Super Bowl is no fun.

Below is my full player prop card for Super Bowl 56, as well as some picks for the novelty props that make the "Big Game" so thrilling to watch.

Super Bowl Player Props

Most Valuable Player

Odell Beckham Jr. (+2800)

I'm on the Gambler Wall of Fame for a 42-1 World Series MVP ticket, so of course I'm looking for another large hit when it comes to Super Bowl MVP.

Betting on Matthew Stafford, Cooper Kupp or Joe Burrow is probably the logical choice, but there are two Rams players I could see winning MVP outside of Stafford and Kupp.

Odell Beckham Jr.'s MVP price sticks out like a sore thumb, and you'll notice a theme here with the Rams wide receiver because I think he will have a great game.

Beckham had 113 yards on nine receptions in the NFC Championship Game and I would not be surprised to see Stafford target him at a high rate to get off to a fast start.

Beckham has 19 receptions in the postseason and he is the only other non-quarterback on the Rams offense that I could see winning MVP outside of Kupp.

Von Miller (+4500)

Von Miller is the only previous Super Bowl MVP in Super Bowl 56.

Miller probably only wins the MVP if he has a massive defensive game and/or scores a touchdown.

Miller has 12 tackles, one forced fumble and one fumble recovery in the postseason. The potential gaps in the Bengals offensive line created by Aaron Donald and Leonard Floyd could allow Miller to get to Joe Burrow more than others.

Miller is more of the long-shot play at MVP, but I'm willing to take the risk because of his experience in the Super Bowl.

Odell Beckham Jr.

Over 5.5 Receptions, Over 62.5 Receiving Yards, Anytime TD Scorer +120

I'm all in on Odell Beckham Jr. having the game of his life.

Beckham has 15 receptions and 182 receiving yards in the last two games.

Beckham will be targeted at a high rate by Stafford, and I think his high totals are aided by the Bengals focusing on stopping Kupp in the first half.

Stafford needs Beckham to have a successful day in order to put points on the board early and shift all of the pressure over to the Bengals.

Even if the Rams are losing, I think Stafford goes to Beckham to get back in the game, so I like his numbers no matter the situation.

Other Game Props

Total Turnovers (Over 2.5)

Los Angeles comes into Sunday with a turnover forced in each of its last 10 games.

Cincinnati forced seven turnovers in its three postseason games.

I think Los Angeles' pressure from its front seven forces Burrow into at least one mistake.

Stafford has not been perfect this season and I would not be surprised if he is picked off at least once.

The potential mistakes from the quarterbacks combined with the high turnover rate from both defenses make me confident in this play.

Bengals Total Field Goal Yardage Over 60.5

Evan McPherson is 12-for-12 on postseason field goals.

If he kicks more than two field goals on Sunday, this prop will clear with ease.

McPherson could clear that number as well with two kicks of 31 yards or further.

With how often McPherson has been used in the postseason, this feels like a bet I have to make.

Over 3.5 Field Goals (+100)

This bet sticks with the game script I have in mind and the trend of both teams settling for field goals.

Evan McPherson should be the predominant figure in getting this prop over the line, but I think there will be a handful of red-zone stops.

I like this prop even more that it sits at plus money.

Tee Higgins Over 5.5 Receptions (+100) and Tyler Boyd Over 4.5 Receptions (+120)

Tee Higgins and Tyler Boyd will be the No. 2 and No. 3 targets for the Bengals.

I think Higgins is used more across the middle because of his body type. I don't believe CJ Uzomah is healthy and I would bet his under on receptions if if was not at -175.

Boyd had four receptions in three of his last four games and I like him to get more involved if Chase is covered, or if Burrow needs to fire off quick passes.

The same thinking applies to Higgins, and I think he gets more targets across the middle on shorter routes.

Chidobe Awuzie Over 5.5 tackles + assists

Chidobe Awuzie has 19 postseason tackles and he had six or more in two of the three Bengals games.

Awuzie may be very active in the defensive backfield with Stafford targeting Kupp and Beckham at a high rate.

Jalen Ramsey INT (+500)

This is solely based off the big-time players in big-time games theory.

Ramsey was brought to LA to help win a Super Bowl and I would not be surprised if he is very active around the ball.
