The LA Rams acquired Odell Beckham Jr. from Cleveland during the season. He was one of several players brought in for a potential run at Super Bowl 56. The Rams’ plan has worked – thus far at least.

LA plays Cincinnati Sunday in the Super Bowl and OBJ has played a key role in propelling the Rams to the NFL title game at their home stadium in Inglewood, California. How should you wager on the mercurial veteran receiver in The Big Game? Let's take a look.

Beckham has been overshadowed by Cooper Kupp since arriving in LA. But he has surprisingly thrived outside the spotlight. Drake posted several Super Bowl 56 betting slips on social media Thursday seeking a big day from OBJ. Among them was a $500,000 wager via Bitcoin on OBJ to go over 62.5 yards receiving at +181 and another $500,000 bet for OBJ to score a touchdown at +215. The total potential payout on these bets is $1.98 million.

Turns out OBJ wasn’t the problem in Cleveland, after all.

The NFL odds on Beckham to be Super Bowl MVP are a terrific bargain. He is +2500 at BetMGM to win that honor. That is a wise investment. Meanwhile, Beckham is +125 at FanDuel to score a touchdown. As we see here, prices in legal regulated markets differ substantially from those elsewhere.

Odell Beckham Jr, Over 62.5 Yards Receiving

Odds: -115 at DraftKings

BUZZ: OBJ has seen his role expand as the Rams have progressed through the playoffs, with his totals rising in each postseason game. He was nearly unstoppable against both the Buccaneers and 49ers. In those two games, the biggest of the season for the Rams thus far, OBJ caught 15 passes on 19 targets for 182 yards.

He has been an easy target for Stafford when pressured and remains able to break from man coverage, especially when against linebackers. Expect OBJ to star in this game. He’s ready for a ring.

Odell Beckham Jr, Over 5.5 Total Receptions

Odds: +116 at FanDuel

BUZZ: Beckham has gone over this number just three times in his 11 games with the Rams. But again, his role continues to evolve and grow as the games become more and more important. That trend should continue in this market.

Odell Beckham Jr., Anytime TD

Odell Beckham Jr., Multiple TDs

Anytime TD Odds: +140 at BetMGM

Multiple TDs Odds: +750 at DraftKings

BUZZ: We’re split here. Given the day we’re expecting for Beckham, a touchdown is reasonable, especially with this price at BetMGM. New England WR Julian Edelman won MVP honors in Super Bowl 53 without reaching the end zone. And he did it against the Rams. So just one score in this market and backing OBJ for MVP honors is a sound strategy.

LIFE AFTER TOM: Buccaneers Next QB Odds & Best Bets


Odell Beckham Jr., Under 23.5 Yards Longest Reception

Anytime TD Odds: -120 at BetMGM

BUZZ: This number is high given the other targets available for the Rams and the defense they will be facing. There will be lots of room underneath for Beckham. He is most often targeted on yard-specific situations.
