Super Bowl 56 features what should be an exciting matchup. This year, the Cincinnati Bengals are taking on the Los Angeles Rams.

BetMGM’s Super Bowl odds currently have the Rams as 4.5 point favorites to win the game.

Are you a new bettor that wants to get in on the action? Read on to learn how to bet on Super Bowl 56.

Rams at Bengals (Neutral)

The first thing you should know about this game is when and where it’s played. Here is the information you need to know.

  • Date: Sunday, Feb. 13, 2022
  • Time: 6:30 P.M. EST
  • Venue: SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, CA

Spread (Rams -4.5)

One of the most common things to bet on in a football game is the spread. Here, the Rams are 4.5 point favorites over the Bengals.

You are betting on either a favorite winning by more than the point spread or the underdog losing by less than the point spread. A bet on the Rams means they must win by five points or more in this instance. A spread bet on the Bengals means they must lose by four points or less or win the game.

Money Line (Rams -200, Bengals +165)

The next betting option is the money line. A money line wager is when you bet on a team to win outright.

Money line bets are a more profitable option when betting on underdogs. The Rams’ money line is -200 while the Bengals’ is +165. Betting $100 on the Rams at -200 will win $50 while betting $100 on the Bengals will win $165.

Point Total (48.5)

When you bet on the point total, you are betting on how many combined points the two teams will score in one game.

For this Super Bowl, the total currently sits at 48.5 points. That means that you have the option of betting on the total points being over or under that amount.

Like spreads and money lines, you also have the option to wager on the first-half point total (23.5).

Another intriguing point total option is a team totals wager. With these, you bet on the over/under of a specific team’s offensive output for the game. For example, the Bengals over 22.5 odds are -110, while the Rams over 22.5 odds are -250.

Prop Bets

The prop markets give you many betting options for Super Bowl 56. You can bet on player props or team props.

A great example of a player prop is quarterback passing touchdowns. The current BetMGM odds have Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow at -150 odds for passing over 1.5 touchdowns. To win the bet, Burrow must pass for two or more TDs.

An example of a game prop is the first to score wager. The Rams have -140 odds, and the bet wins if they are the first to score a touchdown, field goal, or safety.
