We’ve entered the home stretch heading into Super Bowl 56. Both FanDuel Sportsbook and DraftKings Sportsbook are offering a plethora of team and player props on their respective sports betting apps. While the Super Bowl point spread has ranged from Rams -4 to -4.5 during early wagering, today we’re focusing on plus-money player props that provide bettors with the opportunity to land some solid payouts and finish Super Bowl Sunday in the black.
The Bengals’ Joe Burrow is +122 on FanDuel to throw for under 1.5 touchdown passes. Given his current form — two-plus touchdown passes in four of his last five — and receiving weapons at his disposal, two touchdown passes feels very attainable, if not downright probable. However, we saw the Tennessee Titans punish Burrow (nine sacks) in the divisional round. The Rams will deploy Aaron Donald and Co. with the sole purpose of wreaking havoc in the Bengals’ backfield.
Even from a pro-Cincinnati perspective, it’s not difficult to envision a quality team performance in which Joe Mixon or even the Bengals defense provides a touchdown. Perhaps Burrow even finds himself rushing for a score.
Super Bowl WR & RB Plus-Money Player Props
The four principal wide receivers in this game are drawing plus-money odds on DraftKings to finish with the most receiving yards. Cooper Kupp (+120), Ja’Marr Chase (+400), Tee Higgins (+600), and Odell Beckham Jr. (+800) are each worth consideration.
Kupp leads the Rams with a 31.7 percent target share. He’s seen fewer than 10 targets in just four games this season. Bettors can be almost certain he’ll see the volume necessary to pace all pass-catchers in receiving yards.
Chase is one of the most explosive players in football, averaging 18.0 yards across his 81 receptions. He’s a chunk play waiting to happen, and may not necessarily need double-digit looks to eclipse the 100-yard plateau. Bettors may want to consider how heavy a dose of Jalen Ramsey he’ll see — and how much they care.
Both Higgins and Beckham have demonstrated high-level play this season, but it’s the former who stands out in this spot. Higgins has surpassed 100 receiving yards five times since Week 12. He’s proven capable of serving as a capable No. 1 if and when defenses key on Chase. The combination of price and potential production make him an enticing gamble for those seeking plus-money wagers.
DraftKings is also dealing odds for most rushing yards. Joe Mixon and Cam Akers, both +110, are the two likeliest to lead their respective teams in rushing. Neither one has been particularly efficient of late, but Mixon appears to be ticketed for the largest share of carries. Akers and Sony Michel shared a balanced split (13 vs. 10) in the NFC title game. Mixon, meanwhile, has endured no such competition for carries.
