Rams wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. has had a great season since joining Los Angeles. Player prop expert Gray Gutfreund tells us why you should trust OBJ to start hot in Super Bowl LVI.

Odell Beckham Jr. Super Bowl 2022 Props: Trust Odell to Start Strong With This +250 Prop

Odell Beckham Jr. wasn't even on the Los Angeles Rams' roster for the first half of the season. However, he leads all Rams players in first receptions this season despite not showing up until Week 10. Rams Head Coach Sean McVay has clearly made an effort to get Odell going early. Why? Perhaps McVay wants to get Odell early touches to ensure that his star second option is locked throughout the game. Regardless of why the Rams look in Beckham's direction early, they do it a ton.

Odell Beckham Jr. to make First LA Rams Reception (+250) (Bet $100 to Win $250)

*Odds Available at DraftKings at Time of Publishing*

Odell Beckham Jr.'s involvement at the beginning of games this season is nuts. He's made the Rams' first reception in 6 of his 11 games since joining this year's NFC champs. Even in the five games where Odell did not record LA's first catch, he managed the team's second reception in two of them.

The Rams have entrusted Odell in an even larger early role in the season's most important games. Over their last four contests, Beckham has made the first reception in three of them. And, the only miss came in Los Angeles' first playoff game, where he made the Rams' second reception. It's obvious that McVay really wants to get the 3-time Pro Bowler going early, and I don't see that changing on the big stage.

The former New York Giant is averaging 1.9 first-quarter targets per game since he was picked up by the Rams in Week 10. That's good for a team-lead (yes, even ahead of Cooper Kupp). Beckham has turned 9 targets into 7 receptions for 69 yards across three first-quarters just this postseason.

I'm expecting Matthew Stafford to find Odell early in this one, which could be a breeze against one of the league's weaker cornerback units.
