The Super Bowl is still a couple of weeks away and we’re already seeing a ton of player prop bets popping up for this game. The Cincinnati Bengals will be taking on the Los Angeles Rams, with the Rams getting to play in their home stadium. Which of these teams will be able to come out on top, and more importantly, which players will be able to hit on their prop bets?
Joe Burrow Passing Yards Under 275.5
Joe Burrow has been on quite the run this postseason. However, it doesn’t look likely that he will throw for over 275 yards in this game. During their Wild Card Round win over the Las Vegas Raiders, he went for 244. He followed that up with 348 against the Tennessee Titans and then came back down to 250 against the Kansas City Chiefs. He has surpassed that 275 mark once this postseason and the Los Angeles Rams are a squad that just held Jimmy Garoppolo to 232 yards.
Cooper Kupp To Score A Touchdown
Cooper Kupp has been practically unstoppable the entire season. There is a reason that he is being talked about in the MVP conversation. Kupp has been Matthew Stafford’s favorite target in the passing game without a doubt, finishing with over 2000 receiving yards.
Last week, against the San Francisco 49ers, Kupp hauled in 11 receptions for 142 yards and two touchdowns. The week before, against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, he had nine receptions for 183 yards and a touchdown. If the Rams are going to be competitive in this game, Kupp will find the end zone at least once. He has yet to be held without a touchdown in any of the three postseason games he’s played this year.
Ja’Marr Chase Over 5.5 Receptions
The rookie phenom started to see a ridiculous amount of defensive attention in the AFC Championship Game. However, he still provided six receptions for 54 yards and a touchdown. The prop bet here is 5.5 receptions.
In the game against Las Vegas, Chase had nine receptions for 116 yards, following that performance up with five receptions for 109. Chase is always heavily involved in the Bengals’ offensive game plan and even being double-teamed, he still put up six catches on the day. Cincinnati has to get him involved in order to win the game, even with Jalen Ramsey likely to shadow Chase.
Odell Beckham Over 60.5 Receiving Yards
Odell Beckham is really starting to get comfortable in this offense. It took a while to get settled in but since the postseason began, Beckham’s producing results consistently.
This prop bet is set at 60.5 receiving yards for Beckham, a target that seems easy enough to beat. He has slowly been improving each and every week of the playoffs, hauling in four receptions for 54 yards and a touchdown on Wild Card Weekend. He followed that up with six catches for 69 yards against the Buccaneers. Finally, he just posted nine receptions for 113 yards against the 49ers. Odell has to be a contributor in this game for the Rams and should come up nicely as the number two option.
