NFL Super Bowl LVI Preview

With 272 regular season games done and dusted, along with 12 more playoff showdowns, the Los Angeles Rams and Cincinnati Bengals collide in Super Bowl LVI.

It’s the second year in succession where the Vince Lombardi Trophy will be awarded at the home stadium of one of the participating Super Bowl teams, with the Rams having the advantage of competing in front of their home fans at SoFi Stadium in Los Angeles.

The Rams were always a strong chance of advancing to Super Bowl 2022 – they opened at $13 at the start of the season and have hovered around that price for the bulk of the campaign.

After winning five straight games, the Rams secured the NFC West in Week 18 before going on to dismantle the Cardinals 34-11 during Wild Card Weekend. That victory set up a blockbuster encounter with reigning Super Bowl champions Tampa Bay, with Los Angeles registering a nervous 30-27 win to send Tom Brady into retirement in the process.

Another close battle ensued in the NFC Championship game, with the Rams prevailing by three points once more, edging out the 49ers 20-17.

With a Super Bowl defeat to the Patriots three years ago still firmly in their minds, the Rams will be determined to go one step further on their home turf this time around.

Meanwhile, the Bengals have come from nowhere this season to book their ticket into the big dance, appearing in their first Super Bowl since 1988.

Cincinnati were as big as $101 last April to win Super Bowl LVI, but on the back of some Joe Burrow brilliance, they overcame a midseason slump to win the AFC North.

The Bengals have rode their luck during the postseason, beating Las Vegas 26-19 in Wild Card Weekend before edging out the Titans 19-16 despite Burrow being sacked a record nine times.

Then, with the odds stacked against them, the Bengals miraculously recovered an 18-point deficit in the AFC Championship to conquer the Chiefs 27-24 in overtime. Cincinnati now turn their attention to upsetting the odds one final time as they chase their first ever Super Bowl championship.


Super Bowl LVI Betting, Odds & Picks

Los Angeles Rams Odds: Best odds $1.50 with Ladbrokes
Cincinnati Bengals Odds: Best odds $2.75 with bet365


Super Bowl LVI First Touchdown Scorer Odds & Picks

Rams wide receiver Cooper Kupp is the obvious choice for first touchdown scorer, but he doesn’t represent much value in a market that can essentially be a lottery. Kupp crossed for 16 regular season touchdowns and had four more during the playoffs, but the Bengals will almost certainly double up on him inside the red zone.

Which leads us to Odell Beckham Jr, who is much better value and has an almost-equal chance of crossing first. Beckham Jr. has been a different player since joining the Rams and always gets up for the big games, producing some stellar performances throughout the playoffs. He is starting to build a great partnership with Matt Stafford, so if Kupp takes the initial drives, it could open up Beckham Jr to score the first touchdown.

For the Bengals, Joe Mixon looks good value as the favourite. Mixon has scored 17 touchdowns in 19 games this season – 13 rushing and four receiving. The 25-year-old running back is the go-to man for Cincinnati and he will be deeply involved as the Bengals look for those long drives into the red zone.


Los Angeles Rams vs Cincinnati Bengals Picks & Betting Tips – Best Super Bowl Multibet

  • It’s shaping as a close contest, with four of the last five Super Bowls being decided by a 1-13 margin. The Rams have seen a 1-13 margin in seven of their last eight games, while the Bengals have been involved in a 1-13 margin in their last five consecutive outings
  • We’re backing a relatively close game and as such, we’ll be leaning on the side of minimal points. Under is 4-0 in the Bengals’ last four games overall and 7-0 in their last seven playoff matches, while the Under is 27-10-1 in the Rams’ last 38 games as favourites. Two of the last three Super Bowls have seen under 48.5 points
  • Matthew Stafford has thrown for over 281.5 passing yards in six of his last 10 matches and had 337 and 366 yards in his last two playoff appearances

Super Bowl 2022 Halftime Betting

As usual, there are numerous novelty and prop markets surrounding the always-spectacular Super Bowl halftime show. Some blockbuster entertainment is on the cards, with the likes of Dr. Dre, Eminem, Snoop Dogg, Kendrick Lamar and Mary J. Blige set to perform.

Online bookmaker Ladbrokes has a number of specials to choose from. Here’s a few examples of what you can bet on during halftime with Ladbrokes:

  • Artist to Perform First
  • First Dr. Dre song performed
  • First song performed
  • Football to be used as a pro during halftime show
  • How many songs will be played during halftime show
  • Tupac to join via hologram
  • What will Eminem wear on his head
  • Will Snoop Dogg smoke on stage
  • Will there be a wardrobe malfunction

We’ll be jumping on a few of these for some fun during halftime. We’re liking ‘California Love’ to be the first song performed considering the game is in Los Angeles, while Eminem usually wears a hat on stage, so we can get some decent odds for that to happen again.

We also like over 8.5 songs to be performed – with so many high-profile artists and collaborations between hip hop icons such as Dre, Eminem, Kendrick and Snoop Dogg, surely they will be running through a good chunk of their catalog. Over 8.5 is usually a safe bet – the Weekend hit nine songs last year, while Jennifer Lopez and Shakira did 15 in 2020, lending more to the theory that more artists = more songs. Additionally, Maroon 5 played nine in 2019 and Justin Timberlake performed 11 in 2018.


Super Bowl MVP Predictions & Tips – Best Most Valuable Player Picks

A lot of punters are tempted to find some value selections at massive odds in the MVP market, but we’re going to keep it relatively simple here.

We’re backing the Rams to win, and if that’s the case, Matthew Stafford is going to be the man to lead them to victory. Quarterbacks usually dominant the MVP award, with nine of the last 12 awarded to QBs. Stafford is the main man for LA – he ranked third in the regular season in passing yards and second in passing touchdowns, while he improved those numbers in the playoffs. Stafford is at the forefront and will be instrumental in the Rams coming out on top.

If you’re backing the Bengals, Joe Mixon is decent value. He’s one of the most involved running backs in the game, with Mixon touching the ball 20+ times in the postseason. Mixon looks good for a touchdown and if he’s consistently getting his hands on the ball, he will be thereabouts for the MVP award.

We’re liking Cooper Kupp to cover the 105.5 receiving yards line. Kupp has made 105.5 yards or more in 11 of his last 15 matches, including 142 and 183 in his last two appearances in the playoffs. He’s also covered 105.5 yards in four of his last five games at SoFi Stadium.

And even though we expect high involvement from Joe Mixon, he hasn’t been accumulating many rushing yards as of late. Mixon has gone under 60.5 rushing yards in six of his last eight games and will be a target for the Rams’ defence.


NFL Super Bowl LVI Novelty Props Betting Predictions & Tips

This is obviously a bit of a lottery that punters can have fun with. You can get odds of $1.60 with Ladbrokes for a Gatorade bath before the final whistle, which we think is a pretty decent chance of happening.

You can also bet on what colour Gatorade will be poured over the winning coach. Orange is the favourite at $3.00, but we’re going to lean with Blue at $4.50. Blue has been the colour of choice in two of the last three Super Bowls.

What to Consider When Betting on the NFL Super Bowl 2022

It’s easy to feel overwhelmed when betting on the Super Bowl due to the immense amount of available markets.

However, if you aim to keep it simple, things become much easier and less stressful. For example, there’s a reason the Rams are favourites. They have been the better and more consistent team throughout the season and have the enormous advantage of playing at home. Taking the Rams in either the H2H, spread or 1-13 margin betting are all calculated bets that are likely to happen.

You can also have fun with the novelty props before the game to potentially fill up your bank before the game gets underway. 50-50 chances such as the coin toss can be a quick and easy way to start your Super Bowl betting experience and if you’re successful, you can wager your winnings on live betting.

Super Bowl History

The Super Bowl is the annual championship game to determine the NFL’s champion for each season. The term ‘Super Bowl’ was coined in 1966 as part of a merger agreement between the NFL and the American Football League, where the league’s best teams would compete for the right to be crowned champion.

Since 1971, all Super Bowls have been contested between the two best teams from each conference (the National Football Conference or NFC and American Football Conference or AFC).

Out of the 32 current teams in the NFL, 20 have won a Super Bowl and 14 have captured multiple championships.

New England Patriots and Pittsburg Steelers, both of the AFC, hold the record for most Super Bowl titles with six apiece, while the NFC’s Dallas Cowboys and San Francisco 49ers have five each. The Cowboys have the most appearances in a Super Bowl with eight.

The Super Bowl is one of the world’s most watched sporting competitions and usually tops the ratings in the United States each year.
