The NFL is about to crown a league champion, either the Cincinnati Bengals or the Los Angeles Rams.

These are two of the best offenses in the league, and they coincidentally finished the season tied, each putting up 460 points over their 17 games.

Super Bowl betting odds have the Los Angeles Rams as the favorites. With the season’s finale rapidly approaching, let’s look at some Los Angeles Rams player prop bets for Super Bowl 56.

Super Bowl 56 Game Information

Before looking into player props for this game, here’s what you need to know:

  • Date: Sunday, Feb. 13th
  • Time: 6:30 P.M. EST on NBC
  • Venue: SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, CA

Matthew Stafford 300+ Passing Yards (+130)

Stafford threw for 4,886 yards this season, which is third in the league and good for an average of 287.4 passing yards per game.

This postseason he’s averaging 301.7 yards per game despite only having 17 attempts and 202 yards against the Arizona Cardinals in the Wild Card.

The Rams’ offensive game plan was focused on the passing game for most of the season. The Rams averaged 25.9 rushes per game in the regular season, which was 19th in the league.

Meanwhile, the Bengals’ defense struggled most of the season against the pass, allowing the 26th most passing yards in the NFL. They were also 21st in net yards gained per pass attempt, allowing opponents to throw for an average of 6.7 yards per attempt.

Barring a significant early lead or the Rams running game having a lot of success, I expect Stafford to throw a lot of passes and rack up yards.

Odell Beckham Jr. Over 5.5 Receptions (+110)

Joining the Los Angeles Rams offense midseason, Odell struggled to find consistency and averaged only 42.3 yards per game in his first three outings with the Rams. That appears to have changed this postseason, though.

He’s averaging just over six receptions and 78.7 yards per game in the playoffs. He’s tallied 23 targets over the first three games, just under eight per game, and only four of them fell incomplete.

Fellow wide receiver Cooper Kupp is undeniably the offense’s focal point, but the extra attention he’s been commanding has opened the door for Beckham Jr. to make plays.

Matt Gay Over 1.5 Field Goals (-150)

Matt Gay made at least two field goals in 12 of the Rams’ 17 games in the regular season. He’s made multiple field goals in every playoff game this year.

His average attempts per game, including the playoffs, is 2.15, and he’s hit 91% of them.

Between the regular season and playoffs, he’s only missed two kicks in SoFi Stadium this year.

The Bengals have only had one field goal attempt against them the past two games, but for the season, the average was 1.9. They also allowed Daniel Carlson to attempt and make four field goals in their first playoff game this year against the Raiders.

This is a bet that I think holds a ton of value.
