It's that time of year! The Super Bowl is less than two weeks away and many bettors are already getting in on the action. Every Super Bowl is notorious for getting the highest handle and the most bets annually on a game. This year, it'll be no different.

With two likable quarterbacks and two intriguing teams, there are many different thoughts about who will win the Super Bowl this season. The Cincinnati Bengals will essentially be on the road to take on the Los Angeles Rams, but it's not like the Bengals have been at home during the postseason this year anyway, winning their last two games on the road against the Titans and Chiefs.

So what are bettors looking to wager on for Super Bowl Sunday? Here are the most popular bets for Super Bowl LVI via Draft Kings and Bet MGM.

Bengals +4.5 @ -110 (Bet $110 to win $100)

Bengals +4.566%56%
Rams -4.534%44%

Via Draft Kings, the Bengals are getting 66 percent of the bets and 56 percent of the handle. The public was stunned when Joe Burrow and the Bengals came back against the Chiefs, ultimately defeating Kansas City, down 18 points at one point.

While the Bengals like to think of themselves as a team that expected to be here, most others see the Bengals as that Cinderella story. And who doesn't love to bet on an underdog?

Joe Burrow came back from injury and helped lead a sub-par team on paper to the Super Bowl. It's impressive and the Bengals will only get better, but for now, the Rams look so much better on paper.

Los Angeles Rams vs. Cincinnati Bengals Line Movement

Over 48.5 @ -110 (Bet $110 to win $100)

Over 48.555%53%
Under 48.545%47%

There are more bets on the Over 48.5, with 55 percent of bets and 53 percent of the handle at DraftKings. However, the line has adjusted from as high as 50 to 48.5. So it's looking like most, from opening, expect this game to go under.

Everyone wants to get excited about some points but the Bengals blanked the Chiefs for most of the second half and the Rams have a stellar pass rush that should really dominate against a borderline average offensive line that the Rams have. Again, I disagree here and like the under.

Top Prop Bets for Bengals vs Rams via MGM

  • Cooper Kupp Over 102.5 Receiving Yards
  • Cam Akers Over 62.5 Rushing Yards
  • Joe Burrow Over 276.5 Passing Yards
  • Joe Mixon Under 95.5 Rushing/Receiving Yards
  • Tyler Boyd Under 39.5 Receiving Yards

Above are the top five most bet player prop bets at MGM.

Cooper Kupp went from 105.5 receiving yards to 102.5 receiving yards and yet 97 percent of the bets and 99 percent of the handle are currently on the Over. Kupp is a big target and a guy that has put together a ridiculous season. But bettors might be getting too trigger-happy. The Bengals shut down Tyreek Hill in the second half with ease and there's no reason why they can't do that again against Kupp.

The public also sees Cam Akers getting involved more in the offense in this game. Despite not having much room to run in the playoffs this year, Akers has moved from 58.5 to 62.5 rushing yards. 95 percent of the bets and 99 percent of the handle are on the over.

For the Bengals, it looks like the public believes the Bengals will be down early. 90 percent of the bets and 95 percent of the handle are on Burrow Over 276.5 passing yards. Burrow's line opened at 274.5 and is now 276.5. This is one of the lines that really isn't fishy. Burrow should get there in this game.

But despite Burrow throwing for a whole lot of yards, MGM bettors aren't expecting Joe Mixon or Tyler Boyd to get in on the action. Joe Mixon went from 98.5 yards to 95.5 yards for his rushing and receiving prop. 74 percent of the bets and 81 percent of the handle are on the under.

This makes sense as the Rams have been very good against the run this year and Mixon isn't really a pass-catching back. However, if the public likes Burrow to get over his passing yards, Boyd could get involved. MGM bettors have under 39.5 on Boyd's receiving yards for 80 percent of the bets and 97 percent of the handle.

But, again, if you think Burrow will get over his passing yards, fading Boyd probably isn't the smartest thing!
