Super Bowl LVI is just around the corner, which means the prop bets are flowing in. This is one of the most fun ways to bet on NFL games and can get you quite a bit of money. From quarterback passing yards to receiving yards and interceptions.
There are many ways for fans to get involved and claim some winnings while they’re at it. The question is, what should you bet on?
That’s what we’re going to try and help you with today. There are some more obvious bets which we’ll list for you here. Along with that, we’ll go over some of the lesser-known and higher-risk bets. This way, you’ll be able to decide which route you’d like to go with your wagers.
Lastly, we’ll list some of the most popular bets that could win big at the sportsbook this week.
Super Bowl LVI Prop Bet Favorites: QB Passing Yards
This is a very popular bet for nearly every Super Bowl. Betting on the quarterbacks’ passing yards in this game might be a little different, though.
For us, we think taking Matthew Stafford over 275.5 passing yards is your best bet. The Rams rely on their passing game quite a bit, and the Bengals‘ secondary isn’t great. Stafford should be able to throw for over 275 yards.
Another favorite currently sweeping the sportsbook is Joe Mixon under 60.5 rushing yards. The reason why this bet is so popular is because of the stout Rams front seven.
Last week, the Rams only allowed 50 yards on the ground from San Francisco. The Bengals have a much worse offensive line than the 49ers do. Mixon also shares carries with Samaje Perine.
Super Bowl LVI Prop Bet Underdogs: Wide Receiver Props
Here’s a fun Super Bowl prop bet that you can add to your ticket. Tyler Boyd’s receiving yards line is at 40.5 at most sportsbooks.
Some people are steering clear of this bet, but you have to consider Jalen Ramsey. Ramsey will likely cover Ja’Marr Chase, the Bengals’ best receiver. This leaves Boyd with getting more yards and targets.
This is another one that we like quite a bit. The over 5.5 receptions for Odell Beckham Jr. is +110 at most sportsbooks. Similar to the reason Boyd will receive more targets, Beckham will receive more as well.
The Bengals will be too focused on Cooper Kupp to cover Beckham Jr. efficiently. This will leave Odell getting a ton of love from Stafford.
