Bengals Total Field Goals OVER 1.5 (-115) (Bet $115 to Win $100)

Bengals Longest Field Goal (-115) (Bet $115 to Win $100)

Opening Kickoff NO Touchback (-110) (Bet $110 to Win $100)

It's the Super Bowl and I’m here to tell you guys about the real stars of the show. Let's start with my favorite Kicker, Evan McPherson. While it might look that way, going 3-3 from 50+ in the playoffs, 12-12 on field goals, and only missing two extra points on 52 attempts during the season may just seem like your run of the mill kicker stuff, it's actually really freaking impressive. As for the longest field goal, Matt Gay attempted a 46-yard field goal last week and came up well short, meanwhile the Bengals clearly have the ultimate confidence in McPherson. 

As for the Opening Kickoff, this has become an incredibly popular bet over the course of the week but it's a good one. You've probably seen the stat that this prop has hit in 19 of the last 21 super bowls along with the story former kicker Pat  McAfee shared about the ball being incredibly hard. This is honestly one of my bigger bets of the game, I was able to catch the early number at +175 and re-upped at +140 when I realized this was gonna be the mega chalk of the week. I would price this at -140, so anything better than that is a win in my book.

Cooper Kupp OVER 0.5 Rushing Yards (+250) (Bet $100 to Win $250)

The fact of the matter is, Cooper Kupp is the most dynamic player on this offense, and McVay’s job is going to be to get him the ball any way possible. Kupp has a rushing attempt in 4 of his last 7 games, including -2 rush yards last week against the 49ers, and McVay has shown off a willingness to get creative in terms of playcalling. If the running game gets off to a slow start, I think there is a good chance we could see Kupp grab a carry in an attempt to mix things up. Additionally, if the Bengals bracket covers Kupp and they can't get the ball to him in the passing game, then there is a good chance they find other ways to get him involved. Sign me up for +250. 

OVER 2.5 Players to Throw A Pass (+140) (Bet $100 to Win $140)

This is one of my favorite bets to make every year. This will normally be under the novelty prop sections on most sportsbooks and is a Super Bowl classic. This falls under the same logic as the Kupp bet, coaches get creative come playoff time and we’ve seen multiple guys complete passes over the course of the year. I really don't know why this is + money, some of the most memorable playoffs in recent Super Bowl history have been some of these trick plays including the famous Philly Special. While I don't normally mess around in these markets, this is something I bet every single year and It works a lot more than it doesn't.
