Bengals and Rams Showdown: Super Bowl Prop Bets to Bet On

If you’re one of the many people waiting for the Super Bowl, then you won’t be disappointed. In this year’s Super Bowl, the Cincinnati Bengals will face the Los Angeles Rams for NFL supremacy. The Bengals were heavy underdogs going through teams like the Kansas City Chiefs’ favorites. The Rams also went through tough teams like the Green Bay Packers and a hungry San Francisco 49ers team.

Aside from the game, the live entertainment at halftime, and the typical betting, you’ll also have the chance to bet on exciting prop bets. A prop bet is a bet you can make by placing stakes on specific events that occur or may not occur in the game. Events that don’t have a bearing on the game’s outcome are an exotic prop bet. A prop bet that has something to do with the game is called a Game prop. This unpredictability makes it more fun for a lot of bettors.

Game Prop

With that said, what are the best prop bets you can try on this Super Bowl LVI? Here are some Game prop bets to consider:

Who Will Score Touchdowns?

If you want to get started on Super Bowl Betting, you can bet on who’ll score touchdowns. Since the Bengals and Rams are meeting head-on, you can choose players from each roster. Two players are good bets. First off is the Ram’s Wide Receiver Cooper Kupp. The Bengal’s Wide Receiver, Ja’Marr Chase, is also a good bet.

Not only can you choose the player who can score a touchdown, but you can also bet on when they can score that touchdown. There are three options to choose from; if you bet on “Anytime,” you win the bet if your pick scores a touchdown anytime within the game. If you pick “First,” you win the bet if your pick scores the first touchdown. Picking “Last” will let you win your bet if your pick scores the very last touchdown in the game.

Will There Be Overtime?

A game of NFL football can last more than 3 hours and 12 minutes. In this lengthy playtime, both teams can be very aggressive defensively or offensively, which can lead to a tie. When this happens, Overtime occurs until one team wins. If Overtime does occur, those who place a bet on “Yes” will win.

Choosing the Super Bowl MVP

In every professional sport, there’s always that one player that will shine throughout the game. This player often makes consecutive plays that have an impact on their team’s chances of winning the game. When a team wins the game, that player is called MVP or Most Valuable Player and is awarded a trophy. The Super Bowl Trophy is also called The Pete Rozelle Trophy.

The heavy favorite to win the MVP award this year is the Ram’s Quarterback, Matthew Stafford. Should the Bengals win, their Quarterback, Joe Burrow, will be a good pick too. Other good picks include the Wide Receivers from both teams: Ja’Marr Chase from the Bengals and Cooper Kupp from the Rams.

Exotic Prop Bets

If you want a more exciting, unrelated stake to place your bets on, you can try out the exotic prop bets available. Here are some of them:

The National Anthem

Believe it or not, you can place bets about the National Anthem. As it’s customary to play the Star-Spangled Banner before a major sports event, many people are scrambling to place bets on it. Exotic prop bets about the national anthem can be like:

  • From the first note to the last, how long will the national anthem be?
  • How long will “Brave” or the last word of the national anthem be sung?
  • Will the singers forget or omit a word while singing the national anthem?
  • Will a player kneel during the national anthem?
  • Who will be the first player shown when the national anthem is played?

The Number of Commercials

For those at home, don’t worry. You can still place your bets on exotic prop bets, such as the number of commercials shown during the Super Bowl. Yes, you read it right; there’s a bet about the number of commercials every Super Bowl event. The Super Bowl is a big event, and many people are tuning in.

In fact, the Super Bowl is so big it’s like the whole of the US is on a standstill every time it’s on. Since many people are watching, companies take advantage of this and place their ads. Placing ads with the Super Bowl is not cheap in any way. Some network companies are charging $5-6 million for 30 seconds of air time during the Super Bowl.


Now that the dust has finally settled, only two teams are left. Representing the AFC, the Cincinnati Bengals have come a long way. To get to the Super Bowl, they eliminated the Kansas City Chiefs. It should be noted that the Chiefs are this year’s favorite to win the Super Bowl. On the NFC’s side, the Los Angeles Rams steamrolled their way to the Super Bowl by defeating the underdog San Francisco 49ers.

Aside from both teams duking it out for the biggest win in Super Bowl history, fans will also have a lot to cheer on when it comes to the betting. Above are some of the best game prop and exotic prop bets you can place.
