Super Bowl 56 Prop Bets: Biggest Movers
Please note, the betting information below is as of Thursday evening, Feb. 10.
- Rams RB Cam Akers – Rushing yards from 58.5 to 63.5 and back to 62.5
- Rams WR Van Jefferson – Receiving yards from 36.5 to 31.5 and back to 34.5
- Bengals WR Ja’Marr Chase – Receiving yards from 81.5 to 79.5 and back to 80.5
- Bengals RB Joe Mixon – Rushing and receiving yards from 98.5 to 92.5
Joe Burrow’s prop markets have attracted 1.5 times more handle than Matthew Stafford’s so far.
- QB Joe Burrow passing yards – from 279.5 to 275.5 back up to 278.5 (74% money on the Over)
- QB Joe Burrow pass attempts from 38.5 to 36.5 (78% money on the Under)
- QB Joe Burrow rushing yards – 11.5 (the Over has 95% of the total number of tickets and 90% of the total dollars wagered)
- QB Joe Burrow rushing attempts – 2.5 (the Over has 98% of the bets and money)
- QB Matthew Stafford passing yards – from 285.5 to 280.5 and back up to 281.5 (85% money on the Over)
“The over money keeps coming in on Burrow,” Caesars Sportsbook Director of Trading Adam Pullen told TheLines. And especially money from bettors in Louisiana, where the golden boy brought LSU a National Championship and won the Heisman Trophy.
The over rushing yards has drawn the most money on any of Burrow’s prop sides. “Bettors figure that the Rams will get a lot of pressure and that Burrow will have to take off,” Pullen said.
- Rams WR Cooper Kupp – Anytime TD scorer has moved around quite a bit. It opened -175, moved to -210 and back to -171.
“Kupp’s ticket count rivals the total number of Rams’ point-spread tickets. He’s taken 30% of all tickets,” a PointsBet representative told TheLines.
In seven of the nine states PointsBet offers legal sports betting, the Bengals are the most popular moneyline bet to win the Super Bowl, including in Colorado and New Jersey. Bengals have a slight edge in tickets (53%), but biggest bets on Rams.
Three player props that have moved the most include:
- Matthew Stafford Over passing yards – 281.5
- Cam Akers Under rushing attempts – 16.5
- Ja’Marr Chase’s Under receiving yards – 80.5
“It’s going to be record handle for DraftKings,” says Johnny Avello, head of sportsbook operations. DraftKings has been taking bets on Super Bowl props since first posting them Jan. 30. Avello says 85% of the action will come on Saturday and Sunday morning and he’s expecting a lot of money to be wagered on the Rams.
And more and more on props.
“We’ll continue to add props until we’ll have a Bible by the time it’s all said and done.”
