Bettors around the country put down billions of dollars on the Super Bowl every year and will likely do the same for Super Bowl 56. Michigan sports bettors have done their part in previous years and will probably do so again for Super Bowl 56. For many, the focus will be on the game’s outcome and taking the points, moneyline, or betting the total.
But for many, the real action is with Super Bowl prop bets, which sportsbooks post hundreds of for the big game. Caesars Michigan Sportsbook has an extensive selection of prop bets for bettors to choose from. The following are some of our favorites.
Super Bowl Prop Bets — Touchdown Scorers
Bengals WR Ja’Marr Chase And Rams WR Cooper Kupp Both To Score Touchdowns (+188)
As the No. 1 receivers for two pass-first teams playing for the Lombardi Trophy, it is not hard to imagine both getting in the end zone at least once during the game.
Bengals RB Joe Mixon And Cooper Kupp To Score Touchdowns (+200)
Cooper Kupp has recorded 20 touchdowns between the regular season and playoffs, with at least one touchdown in eight of his last nine games. The Rams are a pass-first team, and he is QB Matthew Stafford’s favorite target. Joe Mixon has scored 17 touchdowns, but just one in the postseason. The Bengals could run the ball a lot to keep Stafford off the field, which should increase his chances of scoring.

Super Bowl Prop Bets — Rushing/Receiving
Cooper Kupp Rushing Yards: Over/Under 0.5 (+250/-320)
Rams head coach Sean McVay is not afraid to have his wide receivers carry the ball from time to time. Robert Woods got most of the carries before he got hurt. Since then, it has been Kupp. He had at least one carry in three of the last four regular-season games and once during the playoffs, gaining at least a yard on every carry but the one in the postseason.
It would not be shocking to see McVay call for a couple of end-around plays against the Bengals, but it’s a toss-up as to whether Kupp will get the carry or Van Jefferson.
Rams RB Cam Akers Rushing Yards: Over/Under 63.5 (-135/+105)
It would be easy to see him going for more than 63.5 yards if this one were for combined rushing and receiving yards. That market is 82.5 yards (-110/-110). But while he was a stud during his rookie campaign and has looked good upon his return this season, he is averaging just 2.8 yards per carry. Plus, he’s dealing with a shoulder injury, which has caused him to miss several practices.

Cooper Kupp Number of Targets: Over/Under 11.5 (+100/-130)
That is a high total, but Kupp has gone over it once during the playoffs and nine times during the regular season. It is unlikely the Bengals will try to take Kupp out of the game because that would mean leaving Odell Beckham Jr. single-covered way too often. It will likely be business as usual for Kupp in the Super Bowl, which means plenty of targets coming his way.
Super Bowl Prop Bets — Defensive/Special Teams
Will Rams DE Aaron Donald Record A Sack?: Yes -190; No +160
Aaron Donald had a sack in nine regular-season games and once during the playoffs, but he is one of the most feared pass rushers in the game for a reason. The Bengals O-line has struggled to protect Joe Burrow, giving up 55 sacks during the regular season and 12 in three playoff games. However, the Bengals will probably focus on stopping Donald. That is not to say that they will, just that they will try.

Will Rams LB Leonard Floyd Record A Sack?: Yes +120; No -150
The Bengals will probably be more concerned with keeping Aaron Donald and Von Miller from getting to Burrow than Floyd, which could make it much easier for Floyd to get one. He had 9.5 sacks in the regular season and one in the playoffs.
Bengals K Evan McPherson Made Extra Points: Over/Under 2.5 (+115/-145)
With how the Bengals offense has played in recent weeks, it is not hard to see them getting into the endzone at least three times even against the Rams’ defense. McPherson was 46-of-48 on extra points during the regular season, but the Bengals have scored three touchdowns in a single playoff game only once this postseason.
