The Large Recreation has arrived, and file betting is predicted with greater than 31 million American’s inserting a guess on Tremendous Bowl LVI, based on a current report by the American Gaming Affiliation. The Los Angeles Rams are a 4-point favourite and the over/beneath is 48.5 throughout the board at main on-line sportsbooks.
Whereas the Super Bowl odds favor the Rams to win, most sportsbooks are reporting extra bets and cash on the Bengals. That features a number of bets by ‘Mattress Mack’ totaling $9.5 million on Cincinnati to win the Tremendous Bowl.
Following the singing of the Nationwide Anthem, bettors will likely be anxiously awaiting the choice of the coin toss. That’s proper, one of the crucial common Tremendous Bowl prop bets is the coin toss.
As you agree in to observe the Tremendous Bowl and make your remaining bets on key players for every workforce, the main focus will land on the 2 star quarterbacks with loads of flying footballs anticipated. Each Matthew Stafford and Joe Burrow had been among the many league leaders in passing yards, and likewise two of simply three quarterbacks that handed for greater than 8.0 yards per go. Each quarterbacks have shined within the playoffs so as to add to their top-3 QB rankings amongst NFL quarterbacks.
Stafford (+125) and Burrow (+230) are the favorites to win Tremendous Bowl MVP because the video games Most Useful Participant. But when the Rams win and rating extra as anticipated, it may very well be that the NFL’s Offensive Participant of the 12 months Cooper Kupp (+600) is the MVP if he catches his share of passes and touchdowns after breaking quite a few receiving information this season.
I correspond with skilled handicappers and bettors all through the season, and listed below are another prop bets and popular props.
Rams Standard Props
Following a really robust season selecting NFL underdogs, I’m on the favourite and guess the Rams to win the Super Bowl. I beforehand guess the NFC (pk) over the AFC later within the common season, and have dozens of prop bets on the sport in anticipation of a Rams victory.
One is RB Cam Akers to go ‘over’ 15.5 receiving yards, which has been guess as much as 17.5 at some sportsbooks. Skilled handicapper Bob Stoll of Dr. Bob Sports offered a few of his math fashions and projections with added perception on a few of his prop bets.
“Cincinnati’s protection allowed the 4th-most targets to opposing operating backs this season,” Bob Stoll informed me through electronic mail. “I count on coach Sean McVay to make the most of the display sport, and Akers is the Rams greatest weapon on screens and led Rams operating backs in yards per route run this yr.”
Cooper Kupp has seen one of many greatest strikes upward in his receiving yards prop, which is as much as 107.5 yards at some sportsbooks.
Bengals Standard Props
In Louisiana, the place sports activities betting simply opened two weeks in the past, all eyes are on former LSU gamers Joe Burrow and Ja’Marr Chase. Bettors closely favor the Bengals on the moneyline (+165), which is down following Mattress Mack’s huge bets in Louisiana.
The cash continues to return in on Joe Burrow’s props. Sportsbooks report bettors are betting ‘over’ Burrow’s passing yards (between 274.5 and 279.5), dashing makes an attempt (2.5) and the most well-liked guess ‘over’ his dashing yards (11.5).
Dr. Bob thinks Burrow could also be on his again or scrambling extra with the Rams heavier strain and nice go rushers Aaron Donald and Vonn Miller main the cost. The Rams QB sack prop is over/beneath 3.5 with heavier vigorish to the over.
“Burrow has suffered a ten.0% sack fee for the reason that week 10 bye and that proportion needs to be larger towards an excellent Rams defensive position.”
Stoll famous that three Bengals offensive linemen all rank among the many worst within the league in strain fee allowed at their positions.
Larger Scoring 2nd Half
One different props to notice right here is the market affect and recognition of betting the 2nd half to have extra scoring than the primary half (-120 and guess up). That’s occurred in 17 of the final 23 Tremendous Bowls (one push), and 62% of all 55 Tremendous Bowls.
“I feel the distinction between the Tremendous Bowl and the common season is that the workforce main the sport is extra prone to proceed to play to attain in a Tremendous Bowl than in a daily season sport when much less is at stake,” Stoll says. “The trailing workforce additionally tends to take extra possibilities and change into extra aggressive late in a Tremendous Bowl, which may result in huge performs by the offense and the protection.”
All the eye Sunday will likely be on the gamers, groups and Tremendous Bowl protection from SoFi Stadium on the Rams dwelling discipline in Inglewood, simply Southwest of Los Angeles. But with file betting on Tremendous Bowl LVI, folks in California will be unable to legally guess on the sport with U.S. sportsbook operators, as sports betting in California will not be but authorized within the Golden State.
California is lacking out on thousands and thousands in income. However the cash behind the Tremendous Bowl extends past the bets. When the sport is completed and the Gatorade is showered on the successful coach, every of the NFL’s 32 groups could have acquired $220 million in nationwide media rights payouts.
However billions extra will likely be guess on the Tremendous Bowl.
You’ll be able to guess on it.
