Evan McPherson Super Bowl 2022 Props: Trust the Rookie Phenom

The Cincinnati Bengals' improbable Super Bowl run has featured several games determined by one score. Enter Evan McPherson. The rookie kicker has become one of the internet's favorite Bengals players, and for good reason. In the AFC Championship Game, he sunk a game-winning, walk-off field goal in overtime. The week before that, he knocked down a 52-yarder for the win as time expired. He's emerged as an unlikely star for Cincinnati and should have several opportunities to show up in the Super Bowl.

Cincinnati Bengals Over 1.5 Total Field Goals Made (-115) (Bet $115 to Win $100)

*Odds Available at DraftKings at Time of Publishing*

This line almost feels like stealing. Evan McPherson is 12/12 on field goal tries this postseason, going 4-for-4 in all three of Cincinnati's wins.

Dating back to the regular season, he's knocked down multiple field goals in seven consecutive games and 9 of his last 10 games. That stat alone injects a ton of McPherson-level confidence into my veins for this prop, but there's even more that I like about it.

The Los Angeles Rams had the 8th-best Red Zone defense in the 2021 regular season. Their opponents made 56 trips inside the Los Angeles 20 yard-line, but they came away with only 29 touchdowns, giving LA a stingy 51.8% opponent RZ conversion rate. Overall, the Rams gave up 30 field goals made in the regular season, which was good for 12th-most.

Meanwhile, the Bengals converted the 9th-most field goals this season and ranked as just the 16th most efficient Red Zone offense, which placed them a measly 10th among the NFL's 14 playoff teams.

"Money" McPherson's 12 field goals through three playoff games already stack up at an elite all-time level: the second-most field goals ever made in one postseason run. Adam Vinatieri holds the top spot with 14 from the Colts' 2006 super bowl run. Look for McPherson to cement the greatest rookie kicking season in league history with at least two more on Sunday.
