Super Bowl 56 Info

Ja’Marr Chase Stats
The Bengals’ 5th overall draft pick had one of the best rookie seasons on record. Chase played all 17 games and had 81 receptions for 1455 yards and 13 TDs while averaging 18 yards per catch.
Chase’s presence as a vertical threat is another reason he was selected for the Pro Bowl in his first season. He led all receivers in the NFL in go-route touchdowns with six.
But as expected, coverage gets a little tighter during the playoffs. Chase still caught 20 passes for 279 yards and one touchdown in three games. So while he averaged 4.8 catches during the season, Chase has averaged 6.7 in the playoffs.
Super Bowl 56 Outlook
Joe Burrow will need a keen eye and a quick-release against the Los Angeles Rams pass rush. The Rams are 3rd in sacks and interceptions.
Despite that, Los Angeles also ranked 22nd in passing yards allowed this year, and the Rams’ secondary is recovering from a physical NFC Championship Game. Luckily for the Rams, safety Tyler Rapp (concussion) and CB Jalen Ramsey (shoulder) will play.
The same scenario played out in the last two playoff games. Against the Tennessee Titans, Chase got targeted once in the first half. Then he caught five passes for 109 yards in the second half. Against the Chiefs, Chase struggled to get open in the first half but had a touchdown in the second.
Ja’Marr Chase Best Prop Bets
The Bengals have several offensive targets to use until Ja’Marr Chase finds his spots. I believe that Boyd and Higgins will see more targets in the first half.
It’s hard for me to imagine the Rams keeping Ja’Marr Chase in check for the entire game. He should get over five catches, as he’s averaged 6.7 in the playoffs, but +120 to catch seven passes has much better value than -330 of 5 plus catches.
I’m taking Chase to score a TD at +250 in the second half. I’m also taking the +900 odds of Chase scoring the last touchdown of Super Bowl 56.
Chase has also proven he can produce yards after the catch. So I will take +450 for Ja’Marr to break one for over 50 yards. This season, Chase has had six games (including playoffs) that he’s had a catch that went for over 50 yards.
