Plenty of Joe Burrow prop bets to consider ahead of Super Bowl 56 (Photo by Robin Alam/Icon Sportswire)

Joe Burrow and the Cincinnati Bengals are set to battle for the Lombardi Trophy against the Los Angeles Rams in Super Bowl 56 this Sunday at 6:30 p.m. ET (NBC). It should be a tremendous matchup to watch unfold, and what better way to spice things up than with a little betting action on player props?

There are thousands of ways to bet the Super Bowl, and the prop market for Joe Burrow has plenty of options for bettors to consider. Let’s take a closer look at some of the best Joe Burrow prop bets for Super Bowl 56.

Over 36.5 Pass Attempts (-106 at FanDuel Louisiana)

In three playoff games, Burrow has attempted 34, 37, and 38 passes. Going back further, in his final two regular-season games (both of which had a playoff feel), Burrow attempted 46 passes against the Ravens and 39 against the Chiefs. It’s clear coach Zac Taylor has no issue putting the Bengals’ fate in Burrow’s right arm, and there isn’t much to suggest that should change in the biggest game of the year.

In addition, the matchup in the trenches could suggest even more throws for Burrow. The Los Angeles Rams possess a daunting defensive line capable of getting through Cincinnati’s weak offensive line. Because of that, Taylor and the Bengals may look to get the ball out of Burrow’s hands early. This could result in short, high-percentage throws as the Bengals look to methodically move the ball down the field. All in all, the 2019 Heisman Trophy winner could see another high volume of pass attempts on Sunday.

Under 11.5 Rushing Yards (-110 at Caesars Louisiana)

While he is capable of keeping plays alive with his legs, Burrow is not known for his running abilities. Burrow amassed just 118 rushing yards on 40 attempts during the regular season, good for an average of 7.38 rushing yards per game. In addition, in 16 regular-season games, he surpassed 11.5 rushing yards just twice. The former LSU Tiger showed off his legs with 25 rushing yards on five carries in the AFC Championship Game against the Chiefs, but it would be surprising if he goes over this total in the Super Bowl.

The Rams have a dominant defensive front that collected 50 sacks this season. That was good for the third-most in the league. It is no secret that the Bengals have dealt with issues on their offensive line throughout the season, and those issues were especially evident in the Divisional Round when Burrow was sacked a whopping nine times by the Titans. Los Angeles has pressured opposing QBs on 32% of their dropbacks this postseason, and Aaron Donald and company should be able to get to Burrow. He may not have much room to operate, which could result in limited running opportunities. Look for Burrow to stay under 11.5 rushing yards.

Yards On 1st Completion: Under 9.5 (-110 at DraftKings Louisiana)

Going along with the theme of quick throws from the pocket, look for Burrow’s first completion to be a short one. Burrow is usually calm and collected, but it would not be surprising if Taylor gives the second-year QB a few short passes on Cincinnati’s first drive. This can be done to help him find a rhythm early in the game, as well as calm any potential nerves. The Bengals will not want to come out of the gate with any negative plays like allowing a sack, which means they may not want Burrow standing back in the pocket for too long. Look for Taylor to dial up a screen pass or a quick slant to one of Cincinnati’s receivers to get the offense going.
