Most Intriguing Super Bowl 2022 Prop Bets

1. Coin Toss Winner Defers To 2nd Half

Odds: -500 at BetMGM

It’s been 12 years since the winner of the Super Bowl coin toss elected to take the ball. The only time in the last 13 years it’s occurred was when the Saints elected to receive vs. the Colts – and did an onside kick to begin the second half. Rams coach Sean McVay has deferred every time his team has won the toss (48-of-48). Zac Taylor has deferred in 26-of-27 instances.

2. Highest Scoring Quarter – Second Quarter

Odds: -130 at Caesars

For the Rams and the Bengals, the second quarter is not only the highest-scoring 15 minutes of the game this season, it’s also the frame each is allowing the most points. One team could be trying to run out the clock in the fourth, adding to the chances the second quarter is tops.

3. Most Sacks – Rams

Odds: -220 at BetMGM

Matthew Stafford has been dropped five times while the Rams’ defense has just five sacks these playoffs. But in the regular season, L.A. allowed 31 sacks while registering 50. The Bengals struggled to keep Burrow upright all regular season and it’s extended into the playoffs.

4. First Turnover – Interception

Odds: -110 at FanDuel

Picking the pick over the fumble here is about the matchup. Combined, these teams create 0.9 fumbles lost per game compared to 2.2 INTs snagged. They also suffer twice as many picks (1.8) than fumbles (0.9). The Bengals haven’t fumbled all postseason.

5. Rams/Rams Halftime/Fulltime

Odds: -105 at FanDuel

The Bengals have been one of the top second-half teams, but the first half has been far less successful. The Rams allowed just 9.4 ppg in the first half all season. If they get the lead and avoid a Chiefs-level meltdown, backing a straight-up lead in both instances at near-even money isn’t bad.

6. Rams ML & Over 48.5 Points

Odds: +180 at PointsBet

We’re banking on a Rams win and for the Bengals to score late and push the number over. The more these teams pass, the more likely they are to score. Both teams prefer that method of moving the ball.

7. Bengals Rushing Yards, Under 95.5

Odds: -160 at BetMGM

Cincy rushed for 116 yards vs. the Chiefs in the AFC title game, but had over 96 yards just once in the previous eight games. The Rams’ front seven is great and if the Bengals get behind, the run game might get abandoned in a hurry.

8. More Rushing Yards, Joe Mixon over Cam Akers

Odds: -110 at Caesars

The Rams might be running later in the game, but Akers may have to share carries with former Patriots postseason workhorse Sony Michel. Nobody is getting Bengals carries other than Mixon. The Rams are elite at stopping the run but Cincy isn’t bad either. It’s more about quantity here.

9. Cam Akers Under 16.5 Rush Attempts

Odds: -110 at DraftKings

Akers had 41 total carries in his first two full games back but for only 103 yards and two nearly disastrous fumbles vs. the Buccaneers. L.A. gave him only 13 carries in the NFC title game compared to 10 for Sony Michel. Given Michel’s past postseason clutch play and Akers’ lack of experience, we may get more-even numbers for the RBs.

10. Matthew Stafford Over 1.5 Pass TDs

Odds: -225 at DraftKings

Stafford has thrown two-plus TDs 16 of the Rams’ 20 games, including nine of the last 10. The one time it didn’t happen was by far his worst game of the year. The Bengals rank 27th vs. the pass so Stafford should find his targets in the red zone.

11. Matthew Stafford & Joe Burrow, Over 4.5 Passing TDs

Odds: +145 at BetMGM

Each team is positioned to have more success passing than running, based on their preferences and the weaknesses of the opposing defenses. Expect each QB to get to two scores, a third might win the game for either side.

12. Joe Burrow, Over 276.5 Pass Yards

Odds: -115 at DraftKings

If this game unfolds as expected, the Bengals will fold on the run game and let Burrow sling it by halftime. He has the weapons and at least 300 pass yards in five of the last eight games. The Rams’ defense has done a stellar job of keeping pass TDs to a minimum, despite giving up big yards.

13. Joe Burrow Longest Pass, Over 38.5 Yards

Odds: -120 at FanDuel

The Bengals’ last six games in which Burrow played, all wins, he’s had at least two passes of this length in four of them, at least one in five. The Rams have allowed a pass of 39-plus yards in three of the last seven games, but 30-plus in all of them. Burrow will push it more than most QBs.

14. Joe Burrow, Over 36.5 Pass Attempts

Odds: -110 at FanDuel

Burrow has had at least 34 attempts in seven of the last eight Bengals games, including 38 and 37 the last two. Expect nothing less in the Super Bowl, especially as Cincy faces a Rams D that’s allowing 54 ypg on the ground in the playoffs.

15. Joe Burrow, Over 1.5 TDs

Odds: -160 at DraftKings

Burrow is more likely than Stafford to come up short in the TD props game, with six games of two-or-fewer scores including two of the last six. But with the Rams’ strong run D and the likelihood Cincy falls behind, creating more reasons to throw, Burrow should do his share for NFL betting fans.

16. Cooper Kupp, Score a TD

Odds: -165 at BetMGM

Kupp has at least one TD in five straight Rams games and in eight of the last nine. The Bengals have multiple receivers to worry about, so look for Stafford-to-Kupp to once again be a central and successful plan.

17. Cooper Kupp, Over 104.5 Receiving Yards

Odds: -110 at PointsBet

Kupp has 183 and 142 yards in the last two postseason games for the Rams, and this Bengals pass defense has too many other concerns to put all their eggs into slowing one wideout.

18. Evan McPherson, Over 1.5 Field Goals

Odds: -120 at DraftKings

McPherson is a perfect 4-for-4 in each of the Bengals' playoff games. He’s scored at least 10 points in five straight games. Only once all year has he finished under seven points. He kicks lots of field goals, folks.

19. Matt Gay, Over 2.5 Extra Points

Odds: -105 at DraftKings

We’re going by the assumption the Rams will score at least three TDs and go for one. Gay is an impressive 48-of-49 on extra points, and perfect since Week 5.

20. National Anthem Length, Under 95.5 Seconds

Odds: -110

Country singer Mickey Guyton will be belting out the tune. While many singers use the Super Bowl spotlight to take the Star Spangled Banner to out-of-control new levels, Guyton’s performances in the past have been well short of this mark. The usual length the last 30 years has been nearly 120 seconds; Guyton clocked in at 76 seconds for a Memorial Day event. One would assume she won’t stray far from her usual length.

21. Position of Super Bowl MVP – WR

Odds: +300 at BetMGM

Quarterbacks win these awards more often than not, but there isn’t much value in a -300 bet on that. Each team has multiple weapons, and each has a bona fide and clear No. 1 target. We get both of them here, and possible outliers like Odell Beckham Jr., Tee Higgins and Tyler Boyd.

22. Super Bowl MVP, Cooper Kupp

Odds: +600 at DraftKings

Quarterbacks usually win, but this receiver led the NFL in targets, receptions, yards and touchdowns, and he’s actually upped the production in the playoffs. If a non-QB is going to win the award, Kupp makes a lot of sense and his NFL odds at some sites offer value.
