Sony Michel Super Bowl 2022 Prop Picks and Best Bets

For the entire regular season, the Rams used a running back by committee approach as Sony Michel and Darrell Henderson Jr. split time in the absence of Cam Akers (Achilles injury). Since Akers made the improbable return to be available this postseason, however, Michel’s participation has fallen off a cliff.

Even still, a prop market for Super Bowl LVI has emerged and there’s plenty of value to be had for those who dig deep enough. Let’s dive in.

Sony Michel Rush Attempts: Over 4.5 (-135) (Bet $135 to Win $100)

Even with Akers getting the lion’s share of snaps this postseason, Michel has still been getting fed. Through three playoff games thus far, Michel is averaging 8 attempts per game and racking up higher yards per run (3.3) than Akers. 

In a game that will take all hands on deck, I expect Michel to still be a major focus of this offense and get more than five snaps heading his direction.

Sony Michel Anytime Touchdown Scorer (+245) (Bet $100 to Win $245)

Despite the fall-off in statistics since Akers returned this postseason, Michel still was a major catalyst in getting this Rams team here. He has also proven to be the more reliable option when it comes to ball security. 

In fact, through three postseason games, Akers has twice as many fumbles (2), as well as fumbles lost (2), then Michel did in the entire regular season. In a game where turnovers could very well mean life or death on the season, don’t be surprised if Michel gets some plays designed for him early on that get him to pay dirt.
