These two teams battle each other in ten days to determine an NFL Champion. Meanwhile, we have the privilege to examine NFL Playoff Betting Odds And Predictions. Let’s take a look at field goals first. That’s right. Field goals.
Super Bowl 56 Team Props – Field Goals
When we mentioned at Canada Sports Betting that a sports bettor can bet on anything, we were not kidding. There are a number of ways to bet on field goal team props this year. Betting for Super Bowl 56 features everything from longest to shortest field goals to which team kicks the last three-point try. For those scoring at home, shouldn’t we look at the kickers themselves? That would help.
So, the Los Angeles Rams’ kicker Matt Gay had a solid season in 2019 before the pandemic hit. This year was different though. Gay kicked 32 of 34 field goals and 48 of 49 extra points. It is that field goal range that was impressive. Gay went 11 for 13 from 40+ yards including 4 of 5 from 50+. His season-long kick was 55 yards.
Do understand that these involve props dependent on what a team does offensively. Their drives have to stall in field goal range obviously. The good news is that the weather expects to not be an issue for Super Bowl Sunday. Gay has been excellent all season. Now, Cincinnati Bengals’ kicker Evan McPherson became an interesting story himself. This is his rookie season out of Florida.
McPherson made 28 of 33 field goals this season including nine from beyond 50 yards (58 was his season-long). He is a kicker with 60+ yard range which comes in handy for a few props. McPherson kicked four field goals in the AFC Championship to get Cincinnati to the Super Bowl. Hence, one of our main picks is taking Cincinnati to score the longest field goal (2.05) along with the last field goal (2.13) and the over 1.5 field goals (1.83).
Team Props – Most Offensive Plays
Let’s talk about some crazy team props. How about trying to guess which team is going to have the most offensive plays? There are at least a couple of methods to quantify this. Both teams were more in the middle of the pack overall this season. Los Angeles ranked 16th at 63.1 per game while Cincinnati ranked 22nd at 61.9. While the Bengals have been a bit better time of possession-wise, Los Angeles has a higher-end capability.
Their season-high was just last week with 76 plays ran. The Rams past three games saw them average four more plays compared to the Bengals. Balance seems to lie more with Los Angeles as well. Their offensive line is a bit more stout when compared to Cincinnati. It has been well documented that Joe Burrow may have to run for his life at times come to Super Bowl Sunday.
Again, Cincinnati could very well gain more yards per play but Los Angeles is our pick to run the most offensive plays come Super Bowl 56.
A Final Super Bowl Team Prop – 2 Point Conversion?
This Super Bowl Team Prop is the longest of long shots. Finally, will a team make a 2-point conversion? It is always difficult to guess here because this is so dependent on the score. Is a team chasing the game down by double-digits? Did a team previously miss an extra point? Again, there are quite a few variables.
That being said, the numbers are so titled toward a no that a contrarian wager on yes is at least worth a small bet. Also, both teams have combined to convert just three two-point conversions this season. This is where the unexpected comes in. Our pick is to make a minimal wager on a yes for an XP2 this Super Bowl 56.
