Well, it’s the moment all of us football fans have been waiting for, the Super Bowl is finally here with tons of opportunities to make some cash. It’s the last NFL game of this wild season, so let’s end it on a good note with this betting preview thanks to prediction website 

Super Bowl LVI: Los Angeles Rams vs. Cincinnati Bengals 

  • BEST BET: Total Points UNDER 48.5

    We all remember what happened the last time a struggling offensive line played in a Super Bowl and the Bengals enter this years’ edition with exactly that! In 2021, Patrick Mahomes was running for his life in the backfield as the Buccaneers front five made his day nothing short of miserable.  

    I’m not saying this year will produce the exact same outcome, because Joe Burrow has proven that he can still win games with a struggling offensive line. What I am saying though, is Aaron Donald and his Rams teammates will make it as hard as possible the Bengals and their QB.  

    The Rams’ defense has held their playoff opponents to an average of just 18.3 points, while the Bengals defense held theirs to 19.6 points per game. 

    Both of these offenses are capable of putting up points and fast, but I think this game ends with each team landing in the low 20s. 

    It’s worth noting that in the past three Super Bowls, the UNDER has cashed in all three.

  • BEST PROP: Joe Mixon OVER 25.5 receiving yards (-114)

    We all know how bad the Bengals offensive line has struggled all season long. Aaron Donald is somewhere in Los Angeles right now well aware of this and will be looking forward to ending the road for Joe Burrow and Cinci inside his home stadium. 

    I fully expect the Rams defense to find the backfield early and often throughout. With this happening, Joe Burrow will need to be rushed out of the pocket getting the ball out early. Look for Mixon to be leaking out as Burrow’s escape route.  

    Mixon has cleared this yard total in each of his last 5 games.  

    • vs Ravens: 6 catches for 70 yards  
    • vs Chiefs: 7 catches for 40 yards  
    • vs Browns: Rested for playoffs 
    • AFC Wild Card vs Raiders: 4 catches for 28 yards  
    • AFC Divisional Round vs Titans: 6 catches for 51 yards 
    • AFC Championship vs Chiefs: 3 catches for 27 yards 

    Joe Mixon has the potential to cash this very early.  

  • FIRST TOUCHDOWN SCORER: Van Jefferson (+1600)

    In the 2021-22 NFL season, the Bengals have scored the first seven times, while the Rams have scored first on 13 occasions. Out of those 13, six were passing touchdowns, and one was rushing. The seven times the Bengals scored first, three were passing touchdowns, and one was rushing.  

    Do what you want with that information, but statistics show the Rams like to jump on you early. With this being in the Rams’ home stadium, I see the home team finding the endzone first. But the big question remains, which player will be cashing those first TD scorer tickets? 

    Now it’d be easy to say the Triple Crown award winner, Cooper Kupp finds the endzone first (+490) after the season he’s had, but I’m looking elsewhere. 

    By elsewhere, I mean Van Jefferson. He should see a lot of struggling cornerback Eli Apple. Apple has the potential to get burned on any given play and the Rams offense will look to attack him early. In a perfect world, Van Jefferson burns him down the sideline for the first touchdown of Super Bowl LVI. Van Jefferson has scored four of the Rams’ first passing touchdowns on the year.
