Two Best NFL Parlay Bets For Super Bowl 2022: 'Rams Roll & 'Pass First'

Two Best NFL Parlay Bets For Super Bowl 2022: 'Rams Roll & 'Pass First'

Matthew Stafford and the Los Angeles Rams will play host to Joe Burrow and the Cincinnati Bengals at Super Bowl 56 in L.A. It’s only the second time a team has played the Big Game in its home stadium. That other instance was just last year – Tom Brady and an NFL odds underdog Tampa Bay Buccaneers roughed up Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs 31-9.

Those who believe the Rams win but the Bengals cover are going against history. Only six instances in Super Bowl history has the favorite won but the NFL betting underdog covered. It hasn’t happened a single time in 13 years.

Super Bowl favorites have won two-thirds of the games and nearly covered nearly 60% of the time. The favorite has covered in three of the last five, though the underdog cashed in eight of the previous nine.

Bookies.com senior handicapper Adam Thompson has his finger on the pulse of the NFL, hitting on 62.1% of his 2021 NFL best bets. Here are his two parlays for Super Bowl 56 to make on your sports betting app this weekend:

Best NFL Super Bowl 56 Parlays

Parlay Odds
LAR ML, LAR-CIN Over, Stafford prop +317 at DraftKings
Akers Prop, Kupp Prop, CIN Rushing +492 at FanDuel

Odds from the above sports betting sites are current as of publication but subject to change.

The “Rams Roll” Parlay

Leg 1: Rams ML over Bengals

Statistically, the Rams are a little better, but when it comes down to the matchups, it’s less close. Combine that with L.A.’s experience advantage and the lesson learned on what not to do thanks to Andy Reid’s Chiefs, and the Rams should be in a very good spot to take a lead and keep it.

Leg 2: Bengals-Rams, Over 48.5

A large total, but the Over has hit in the last six Super Bowls when the total is set in the 40s. Each team has electric passing attacks and questionable pass defense. This has the feel of a 34-24 type game.

Leg 3: Matthew Stafford, Over 1.5 Passing TDs

Stafford passes for two TDs nearly every game. In fact, he’s done it in nine of the last 10. If the Rams are to be successful, it begins with the arm of Stafford and his array of weapons.

The “Pass First” Parlay

Leg 1: Cam Akers, Under 16.5 Rush Attempts

Akers got only 13 carries in the NFC title game after consecutive dud efforts and fumble issues. Backup Sony Michel showed a clutch gene with the Patriots in the postseason and he’s the physical back that the Rams may want to feed in the second half. Each back might get 10-12.

Leg 2: Cooper Kupp, Over 104.5 Receiving Yards

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

Leg 3: Bengals Rushing Yards, Under 95.5

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 be abandoned in a hurry.
