When it comes to Super Bowl betting there is so much more than just the side and total, as hundreds of props are on the board for Sunday’s big game. The props begin before the game even begins and continue all the way through the game and even after the game is over. There are many different ways you can go with the props so we’ll focus on a few props that will keep you in action throughout the game and a couple of props that are very specific. I’ll even give you a longshot prop that has odds of 120-1.  Let’s look at Super Bowl LVI prop picks.

First Touchdown Scorer Odds

Cooper Kupp +450

Cam Akers +650

Ja'Marr Chase +700

Joe Mixon +750

Odell Beckham +750

Tee Higgins +900

Sony Michel +1000

Tyler Boyd +1200

Kendall Blanton +1200

Tyler Higbee +1200

Van Jefferson +1400

Darrell Henderson Jr.  +1500

C.J. Uzomah +1800

Drew Sample +1800

Samaje Perine +2000

Los Angeles Rams Defensive/Special Team +2500

Ben Skowronek +2500

Joe Burrow +2500

Matthew Stafford +2800

Cincinnati Defensive/Special Team +3000

No Touchdown Scored +3300

One of the most popular Super Bowl props every year is the player to score the first touchdown. It is no surprise that two of the Los Angeles players have the lowest odds, as Kupp is Stafford’s favorite target and Akers is now the top rushing option in the backfield. If you are looking for some value then Beckham could be a good choice at odds of +750 and Michel has odds of +1000. There is not much value on the Cincinnati players, especially considering they are the underdog in this game.

Total QB Sacks by the Los Angeles Rams

3.5

The under in this prop is listed at -135. I am focused on the Rams defensive line in this game against the Bengals. The Cincinnati offensive line is simply not good enough to keep Joe Burrow protected. The Bengals didn’t protect him in the game against Tennessee but Cincinnati still found a way to win. The Bengals did better in protecting Burrow against Kansas City, but the Chiefs defensive line is nowhere near as good as the Rams defensive front. I will go over the total on the Rams sack total.

Total Sacks by Aaron Donald

1.0

The over is listed at -125 on this prop. It would be a major surprise to me if Donald doesn’t get at least one sack in Super Bowl LVI. He is a wrecking ball on the defensive front and the Bengals have no chance of keeping him in check in this game. I expect Donald to get multiple sacks so I will take this prop over the total.

Both Teams to Score in First Quarter

Yes +125

No -165

I will take the No in this prop and lay the -165. The first quarter of the Super Bowl is oftentimes low scoring as teams feel each other out and it is rare for a lot of points to be scored in the first quarter. I will take the No on this prop.

Most Points Scored – First Quarter vs. Third Quarter

First Quarter Even

Third Quarter -130

I am really surprised that the third quarter is not a bigger favorite in this prop. The first quarter of the Super Bowl is almost always low scoring and historically the average amount of points scored in the first quarter is decidedly lower than in the third quarter. I think this price is a bargain, so I will lay the -130 and take the third quarter.

Exact Score of Super Bowl LVI

The Rams winning 31-10 is listed at 120-1 odds.  I wanted to take one huge longshot for Super Bowl LVI and this particular prop is listed with odds of 120-1. The Rams are favored in Super Bowl LVI and they have the superior team. That doesn’t mean they are going to win, but Los Angeles should harass Burrow all day long and the Cincinnati defense is not very good.  A 31-10 final score is definitely in the realm of possibility and we get very attractive odds.
