5 Player Prop Bets for Super Bowl 56
1. Any Player to Record 500 or more Total Passing Yards, Including Overtime +2000 (PointsBet NY)
Any time you have two great passers like Joe Burrow and Matthew Stafford in the game, it’s not unheard of for one of them to throw for a lot of yards. While pressure is sure to come from both pass rushes, the dump-pass philosophy can grind yardage, and Cooper Kupp is the NFL’s best YAC receiver. If either team gets off to a big lead (Rams…), the other QB could end up lighting up the SoCal sky with footballs.
Another Passing Yards Prop Bet for Super Bowl 56: +775 for either QB to record 400 yards or more (BetMGM)
2. Odell Beckham Jr., ‘over’ 80 Receiving Yards +188 (Fanduel)
A simple $100 bill on OBJ to grab 80 yards or more from Stafford is tempting, yes?
3. Cooper Kupp to have a 50+ yard Touchdown Reception, Yes +400 (DraftKings NY Sportsbook)
If any receiver in the last decade was made for the Big Game, it’s Kupp, who had a 70-yard TD reception against Tampa in the playoffs, and has six touchdown catches of 50 or more yards in his young career.
4. Super Bowl MVP to Von Miller +5000 (BetMGM Sportsbook)
Only a handful of defensive players have won the Super Bowl MVP award. Miller is one of the few, having captured it in Super Bowl 50 with the Broncos. Want to bet on lightning striking twice in the same shoulder pads? $100 will get you $5,000 if the veteran linebacker wins it again on Sunday with the Rams.
Defensive Players Who Were Named Super Bowl MVP: Super Bowl 50 (Von Miller, Broncos LB), Super Bowl 58 (Malcolm Smith, Seahawks LB).

5. Matthew Stafford to Score a Touchdown, Yes +3500 (Caesars)
The Rams quarterback has played six playoff games in his career and he’s scored three touchdowns. That sounds like 50/50 odds that Stafford will sneak (or scramble or stumble or fall backwards) into the end zone on Sunday in the biggest game of his life. This is a great player prop bet for Super Bowl 56.
