Best ROI Super Bowl Bets & Prop Picks

Under 48.5 Points

This game pits two defenses that have been excellent in the postseason and two quarterbacks that are prone to big mistakes. Los Angeles entered the playoffs ranked 15th in scoring defense and 17th in total defense. However, the Rams were very good at getting to the quarterback and forcing turnovers, and those trends have continued in the playoffs. In three playoff games, the Rams have held their opponents to 18.7 points and 274.6 total yards, including just 54 yards rushing. They have also recorded five sacks and forced five turnovers. Von Miller, Leonard Floyd and Aaron Donald lead the defense. They are excellent at getting to the quarterback, which could prove problematic for a Bengals offensive line that has had trouble protecting Joe Burrow.

Similarly, despite thriving this postseason, Matthew Stafford has thrown bad interceptions throughout his career. Stafford has been picked off 18 times this season. Moreover, the Rams have scored a touchdown in just seven of their 15 trips in the red zone after finishing the regular season 14th (60%) in that area.

Meanwhile, the Bengals’ defense has been opportunistic this postseason. Cincinnati has allowed at least 350 total yards in each of their three playoffs games. However, the Bengals have also forced seven turnovers (six interceptions) and recorded eight sacks. In addition, they were dominant in the second half in the AFC title game against the Chiefs. Offensively, the Bengals like to control the tempo by working the play clock down and running the ball. Burrow has been picked off 16 times this season, including twice this postseason. Plus, the Bengals have been only average in the red zone throughout the season.

OddsShopper projects that there will be 46.8 points scored, and the under has an expected ROI of 8%.

Matthew Stafford Over 279.50 Yards Passing

Stafford has been tremendous this postseason, throwing for 901 yards while completing 72% of his passes. He has thrown for over 300 yards in each of the last two games and averaged 9.1 yards per pass attempt in the previous three games. Expect Stafford to throw a lot against a Bengals team that ranked 26th in pass defense. David Carr threw for 310 yards against the Bengals in the Wild Card round, and their three postseason opponents have combined for 117 attempted passes. Cincinnati has not been great at getting to the quarterback, and seven teams have netted at least 280 yards passing against them this year. Stafford is projected for 291.83 yards passing. OddsShopper gives the over a 61% chance of hitting and an expected ROI of 16%.

Sony Michel Under 20.50 Yards Rushing

After finishing the regular season as the Rams’ main running back, Michel has recorded just 20 yards on 11 carries over the last two playoff games, as Cam Akers has had the majority of the workload in these two games. The Rams have not run the ball well in these past two games, and their running backs only averaged 4 yards per carry during the regular season. The likely return of Darrell Henderson Jr./strong>. from a knee injury could also muddle the running, as he is expected to see some time in the backfield. Henderson last played in Week 16. Michel is projected for 12.67 yards rushing. OddsShopper gives the under an 86% chance of hitting and an expected ROI of 54%.

Odell Beckham Jr. Under 5.5 Receptions

Beckham was fantastic against the 49ers, as he set season-highs by bringing down nine receptions for 113 yards, both season highs. He has 19 receptions on 23 targets for 236 yards in the playoffs. However, this prop bet seems just a touch too high. Beckham has only totaled six or more receptions in three of his 11 games with the Rams. While Beckham appears to have developed a rapport with Stafford during these last three games, they have hooked up just 64.5% of the time he has been targeted. Plus, Cooper Kupp will likely see the majority of targets against the Bengals, while Van Jefferson, Tyler Higbee, Akers and Michel should also see some throws their way. Beckham is projected for 4.74 receptions. OddsShopper gives the under a 64% chance of hitting and an expected ROI of 14%.
