2022 Super Bowl: Bank on these 3 players to score a touchdown

Looking at what players could score an anytime touchdown with Super Bowl prop bets, with 2022 Super Bowl odds, picks and predictions.

Super Bowl LVI will feature the Los Angeles Rams and the Cincinnati Bengals, who will battle for a world championship Sunday at SoFi Stadium with an opening kickoff scheduled for 6:30 p.m. ET.

Below, we look at Super Bowl prop bets with  NFL picks and predictions, specifically at who are the players to bank on to score an anytime touchdown.

While there is certainly debate as to who will win the Super Bowl, one thing is sure. There will be touchdowns scored. There has been at least one touchdown scored in every Super Bowl.

In my 2022 Super Bowl prediction, I have five touchdowns being scored. Who are the players we can count on to score?

Rams WR Cooper Kupp (-180)

Kupp scored 16 touchdowns in the regular season and added 4 more in three postseason games. He has scored a touchdown in five straight games and in eight of his last nine. He is the surest bet, which is why the payout isn’t great.

Bengals RB Joe Mixon (+105)

Mixon scored 13 rushing touchdowns in the regular season and 1 in the postseason. The Rams have only allowed 20 passing touchdowns in 20 games. If the Bengals are going to get in the end zone, it will be on the ground. The Rams allowed 18 rushing touchdowns in the regular season.

Rams RB Cam Akers (+125)

Akers has not scored yet since returning from his Achilles injury, but he is taking a larger role in the offense. QB Matthew Stafford scored 2 TDs in the postseason, but I expect Akers to get a goal-line carry Sunday.

Root: Rams defense will prove too much for Bengals in Super Bowl 56

Analyzing Sunday’s Los Angeles Rams vs. Cincinnati Bengals Super Bowl odds and lines, with expert NFL picks, predictions and best bets.

The final game of the NFL season is Sunday when the Los Angeles Rams and Cincinnati Bengals face off in Super Bowl LVI. Kickoff for the big game is 6:30 p.m. ET at SoFi Stadium. Below, we look at the Rams vs. Bengals odds and lines, and make our best NFL picks, predictions and bets.

The Rams become the second team in consecutive years to play the Super Bowl on their home field. They won the NFC West with a 12-5 record in the regular season and made it to the Super Bowl beating the Arizona Cardinals, the defending champion Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the San Francisco 49ers.

The Bengals won the AFC North with a 10-7 record and took down the Las Vegas Raiders, Tennessee Titans and Kansas City Chiefs to make it to their third Super Bowl in franchise history. QB Joe Burrow has thrown 4 touchdowns and 2 interceptions in his first NFL postseason.

Rams vs. Bengals odds, lines, predictions and picks

Prediction

Rams 24, Bengals 17

Money line

The Rams were only 5-3 at home during the regular season but added two wins during the postseasons. Technically they will not be the home team in this game but will be playing in their home stadium.

The Rams defense has allowed only 274.7 yards per game in three postseason contests and 18.3 points. They were devastating against the Cardinals and against Tampa Bay until it seems they let up after a 27-3 lead.

The Bengals have played great defense as well, a good reason why they have made it this far.

But with Los Angeles DT Aaron Donald wrecking things up front and a secondary playing well, able to limit Cincinnati WR Ja’Marr Chase, I think the Rams will control this game.

Take the RAMS (-200).

Against the spread

The Rams went 10-10 ATS this season. The Bengals went 13-7 ATS.

The Bengals have covered the spread in seven straight games.

Now, each of the last eight Super Bowls have been won by 4 or more points, and only one in the last 14 has been decided by fewer points.

So, historically, it comes down to which team you think will win. I think the Rams will be able to stop the Cincinnati offense and keep them under 20 points.

Take the RAMS -3.5 (-115).

Over/Under

The Under is 4-0 in the Bengals’ last four games and 6-2 in the last eight.

The Rams allow an average of only 18.3 points per game this postseason and the Bengals have allowed 19.7 points per game in three postseason games.

Take UNDER 48.5 (-110).

2022 Super Bowl prop bets: Cam Akers rushing, receiving yards and TDs

Looking at Los Angeles Rams RB Cam Akers Super Bowl prop bets, with 2022 Super Bowl odds, picks and predictions.

Super Bowl 56 kicks off Sunday at 6:30 p.m. ET when the Cincinnati Bengals face the Los Angeles Rams at SoFi Stadium in L.A. It’s a borderline miracle second-yard Rams RB Cam Akers is even able to play in the Super Bowl.

Akers tore his Achilles during this past offseason and it’s almost unthinkable for an athlete to return from an Achilles tear midseason. But Akers defied the odds and made his season debut in L.A.’s regular-season finale against the San Francisco 49ers. Below, we look at Cam Akers’ Super Bowl prop bets with  NFL picks and predictions.

Cam Akers 2022 Super Bowl prop bets

Odds via Tipico Sportsbook; access USA TODAY Sports Scores and Sports Betting Odds hub for a full list. Lines last updated Saturday at 3:15 a.m. ET.

Rushing Yards: UNDER 63.5 (-114)

The three reasons for liking the Under in Akers’ rushing props are Akers’ limited effectiveness in his four games this season, Rams’ second-string RB Sony Michel’s‘ experience in the Big Game and the return of RB Darrell Henderson.

Since returning to action, Akers hasn’t rushed for more than 55 yards in any of his four games and is gaining just 2.6 yards per carry (154 rushing yards on 59 attempts).

Also, Akers had his workload reduced in the NFC title game after two costly fumbles in L.A.’s 30-27 victory over the Buccaneers in the NFC Divisional Round. Akers went from 24 carries versus Tampa Bay to just 13 carries against San Francisco.

Furthermore, Rams head coach Sean McVay announced earlier this week that Henderson would be active in the Super Bowl, saying: “I think Darrell’s going to go. So, you’ll have Cam, Darrell and Sony. You’ll be able to see a good, three-back rotation, based on how the game unfolds.”

Not only has Akers shown ball-security issues and hasn’t done much on the ground, but Michael and Henderson both average more yards per carry than Akers. In fact, Henderson has the seventh-best success rate for running backs in the NFL.

Combine these things with Michel having already played in and won a Super Bowl with the New England Patriots, Akers should get less opportunity.

BET a half-unit on UNDER 63.5 rushing yards (-114).

Rushing Attempts: UNDER 15.5 (-114)

All the logic written above applies to this prop as well. I’m splitting a full unit amongst both Akers’ rushing props because they both have a similar likelihood of cashing.

If the Rams are up in the fourth quarter, I’d expect them to use Michel or Henderson since they are more effective and Akers fumbled twice this postseason.

BET a half-unit on UNDER 15.5 rushing attempts (-114).

Receiving yards: OVER 16.5 (-120)

While Akers hasn’t been as effective running the ball as Michel or Henderson, Akers is the best pass-catching threat in L.A.’s backfield. Akers has gone Over 16.5 receiving yards in two of his three playoff games.

On top of that, Cincy’s defense has allowed the fourth-most pass targets to running backs during the regular season and the fifth-most receptions.

Finally, Raiders RB Josh Jacobs had 44 receiving yards versus the Bengals Super Wild Card weekend and Chiefs RB Jerick McKinnon had 30 receiving yards in the AFC title game.

BET a half-unit on OVER 16.5 RECEIVING YARDS (-120).

2022 Super Bowl: Los Angeles Rams vs. Cincinnati Bengals odds, picks and prediction

Analyzing Sunday’s Los Angeles Rams vs. Cincinnati Bengals 2022 Super Bowl odds and lines with expert NFL picks, predictions and best bets

The longest season in NFL history will officially come to a close in Super Bowl LVI Sunday. The Los Angeles Rams will take on the Cincinnati Bengals to decide which team will hoist the Lombardi Trophy at SoFi Stadium. Kickoff will be at 6:30 p.m. ET from Inglewood, Calif., with the Bengals officially being the home team despite the game being played at the Rams’ stadium. Below, we look at the Rams vs. Bengals odds and lines, and make our best NFL picks, predictions and bets.

The Rams were viewed as Super Bowl contenders from the moment they acquired QB Matthew Stafford in a trade with the Detroit Lions last January. Former QB Jared Goff wasn’t taking them where they needed to go, so they made a bold move to trade Goff to the Lions – along with three draft picks – for Stafford. The trade worked to perfection, landing the Rams in the Super Bowl in Stafford’s first season.

During the regular season, he threw 41 touchdowns and, despite co-leading the league in interceptions (17), he posted a passer rating of 102.9, the second-best of his career. Of course, he was helped by WR Cooper Kupp, who led the NFL in receptions (145), yards (1,947) and touchdown catches (16) this season.

The in-season additions of OLB Von Miller and WR Odell Beckham Jr. helped get the Rams to the Super Bowl, as did All-Pro performances from DT Aaron Donald and CB Jalen Ramsey. The Rams allowed 21.9 points per game, ranked third in sacks and only gave up 17 touchdown passes, second-fewest in the league.

On the other side, there are the Bengals, who don’t feature the star-studded roster that the Rams have. Yet, despite lacking big-name players, the Bengals still finished the season 10-7, won the AFC North and beat the Raiders, Titans and Chiefs in the postseason to reach Super Bowl LVI. They won fairly comfortably over the Raiders, but they snuck by the Titans and Chiefs with game-winning field goals by PK Evan McPherson to win each game by three points.

QB Joe Burrow returned from a torn ACL suffered during his rookie season and threw 34 touchdowns with 4,611 yards in 16 games. He won AP Comeback Player of the Year for his remarkable season, but he wasn’t the only award-winner on the Bengals.

WR Ja’Marr Chase won AP Offensive Rookie of the Year after his historic campaign, catching 81 passes for 1,455 yards and 13 touchdowns, breaking the record for the most receiving yards by a rookie in the Super Bowl era. WR Tee Higgins had 1,091 yards as the No. 2 wideout, while WR Tyler Boyd manned the slot with 828 yards of his own.

Defensively, the Bengals were only middle of the pack. They finished the regular season 17th in points allowed (22.1), but the defense is peaking at the right time. They held the Chiefs to only three points after halftime in the AFC title game and have given up only 59 points in three postseason games.

Rams vs. Bengals odds, lines, predictions and picks

Prediction

Rams 27, Bengals 24

Money line

PASS.

When looking at these two teams on paper, the Rams have a clear edge. They have a dominant defensive front compared to the Bengals’ porous offensive line, which allowed 16 pressures against the Chiefs in the AFC title game, according to Pro Football Focus. The Rams’ offensive line should hold up against the Bengals pass rush, too.

Covering Kupp will be a challenge for the likes of CB Mike Hilton and CB Eli Apple, with the same going for Beckham on the other side. Everything is pointing to the Rams in this one, but at -200, I can’t get myself to take Los Angeles.

In games that Burrow started, the Bengals were 5-1 straight up as underdogs of 3 points or more. There’s a chance they pull off another upset Sunday, which is why I’m going to PASS and instead bet on the spread.

Against the spread

CINCINNATI +3.5 (-105) is the way to go.

The line opened at Rams -4.5, which wasn’t terribly surprising given the construction of their roster and with the game being played at their home stadium. Getting 4.5 points with the Bengals was awfully enticing, which has helped drive the line down to 3.5 points.

No Super Bowl favorite has covered a spread of at least 4 points in the last 14 years. In the last six Super Bowls, underdogs of at least 3 points are 5-1 ATS in the last six instances.

Even with the line dropping from 4.5 to 3.5, I still like the BENGALS +3.5 (-105). Incredibly, they’re 7-0 ATS in their last seven games and 9-2 in their last 11. They should be able to keep this one close and cover the 3.5-point margin.

More 2022 Super Bowl coverage

Over/Under

I like the OVER 48.5 (-110), bucking the trend of recent Super Bowls.

The Over/Under has been nothing short of a toss-up in the Super Bowl. In the 54 Super Bowls where the Over/Under was set, it’s an even split at 27-27. In the last six Super Bowls, the Under has hit four times, including each of the last three.

The Rams and Bengals both averaged exactly 27.1 points per game this season, so mathematically, the Under has a slight edge with the total being 48.5 points. Although both teams could get off to a slow start due to the big-game jitters and magnitude of playing in the Super Bowl, these offenses will each find their rhythm.

Turnovers could also lead to short fields and easy points. Stafford led the NFL with 17 interceptions and Burrow threw 14 of his own, so I wouldn’t be surprised to see a couple of picks – and maybe even a pick-six.

2022 Super Bowl prop bets: Joe Mixon rushing yards and TDs

Looking at Cincinnati Bengals RB Joe Mixon Super Bowl prop bets, with 2022 Super Bowl odds, picks and predictions.

The Cincinnati Bengals meet the Los Angeles Rams at SoFi Stadium in L.A. for Super Bowl 56 Sunday. One of Cincy’s key players is third-year RB Joe Mixon who finished the season third in rushing yards (1,205) and fourth in rushing touchdowns (13).

Mixon having a strong game would bring much-needed balance to the Bengals’ offense. In fact, Cincy is 6-0 in Mixon’s six best rushing performances during the regular season and playoffs combined. Below, we look at Joe Mixon’s Super Bowl prop bets with  NFL picks and predictions.

Joe Mixon 2022 Super Bowl prop bets

Odds via Tipico Sportsbook; access USA TODAY Sports Scores and Sports Betting Odds hub for a full list. Lines last updated Friday at 7:10 a.m. ET.

Rushing Yards: UNDER 60.5 (-114)

First of all, I’m looking at the Under for both of Mixon’s rushing props since I have the Rams beating the Bengals convincingly in the Super Bowl. If L.A. gets out to an early lead or is in control of the game in the second half then Cincy should abandon the run game.

L.A’s rush defense is very underrated; the Rams are fourth in yards per rush allowed (3.9), fifth in rush defense DVOA (according to Football Outsiders) and third in rush defense expected points added per play.

L.A. has also allowed 61 or fewer rushing yards to its opponent in all three playoff games and Mixon has rushed for 58 or fewer yards in six of his last eight games.

My strategy with Mixon’s rushing props is to BET a three-fourths unit on UNDER 60.5 Rushing Yards (-114) and save the other quarter-unit for the Under on rushing attempts.

Rushing Attempts: UNDER 16.5 (-123)

The same point about game-script applies to this prop as well but I’m more confident in Under Mixon rushing yards because I wouldn’t be surprised if Cincy tries to establish the run early on.

However, I see the Rams and QB Matthew Stafford starting out hot, and apparently, the market agrees since the Under for Mixon Rushing Attempts is heavily juiced.

Mixon appeared in six of Cincy’s seven losses and had 14 or fewer rushing attempts in three of those games. Plus, the Bengals are 19th in rushing rate despite being 10th in time of possession.

BET a quarter-unit on UNDER 16.5 Rushing Attempts (-123).

Anytime TD scorer: Mixon (+110)

PASS.

If Tipico offered a “No for Joe Mixon to score a touchdown” then I’d be interested in that, but they don’t. However, Mixon does have a nose for the end zone and it would be a bummer to lose on a short-yardage, goal-to-go scamper.

2022 Super Bowl prop bets: Rams total points

Looking at Los Angeles Rams total points Super Bowl prop bets, with 2022 Super Bowl odds, picks and predictions.

The NFC champion Los Angeles Rams cruised to a 12-5 regular-season record, winning many of their games comfortably, too. They face the Cincinnati Bengals Sunday in Super Bowl 56. Kickoff is scheduled for 6:30 p.m. ET (on NBC) from SoFi Stadium, the Rams’ home field.

The Rams score an average of 28.0 points per game in three playoff wins to get here. How many will they put on the scoreboard in Sunday’s Super Bowl LVI?

Below, we look at the Rams’ total points Super Bowl prop bet with  NFL picks and predictions.

The Rams won the NFC West by a nose, and have landed a spot in the 2022 Super Bowl by beating (in order) the Arizona Cardinals, Tampa Bay Buccaneers and San Francisco 49ers in the postseason.

They finished the regular season seventh in the NFL in scoring, coincidentally tied with the Bengals. Both teams averaged 27.1 points per game, which is a big reason they won their respective divisions and have made deep runs to the Super Bowl.

QB Matthew Stafford lit it up in his first season with the Rams, throwing 41 touchdowns and racking up 4,886 yards through the air. He tossed another 6 TDs this postseason, helping the Rams score an average of 28.0 points per game.

Odds via Tipico Sportsbook; access USA TODAY Sports Scores and Sports Betting Odds hub for a full list. Lines last updated Thursday at 4:10 p.m. ET.

The play: OVER 26.5 (-112)

It’s no coincidence that the line is set right around the Rams’ scoring average. They averaged 27 points per game in the regular season and 28 in the playoffs.

The Bengals defense isn’t anything special, ranking 17th during the regular season after allowing 22.1 points per game, but they held the Raiders, Titans and Chiefs in check by giving up a total of 59 points this postseason.

In 12 of their 20 games this season, the Rams scored at least 27 points. They only won four games when scoring fewer than 27 points, and they were 11-1 when putting up at least 27 points on the board. Their only loss was to the Packers.

If you like the Rams to win this game – which I do – then betting OVER 26.5 (-112) Over is the way to go.

During this playoff run, they scored 34 against the Cardinals, 30 against the Buccaneers and 20 against the 49ers, and San Francisco is a team that’s had their number for years.

When you figure that three of their eight games with fewer than 27 points came against the 49ers, it’s easy to see how good the Rams offense has been all year.

Bet RAMS TOTAL OVER 26.5 (-112).

2022 Super Bowl prop bets: First-half winner

Looking at Los Angeles Rams vs. Cincinnati Bengals Super Bowl first-half winner, with 2022 Super Bowl odds, picks and predictions.

The Los Angeles Rams and Cincinnati Bengals face off Sunday in Super Bowl LVI to determine who are this season’s NFL champions. While perhaps the most intriguing part of the game and the most intriguing bet that can be made is on the result, one can also wager on who will be leading after the first half. Will the Rams or Bengals end the first half in the lead, or might the game be tied?

Below, we look at the first-half winner Super Bowl prop bets with  NFL picks and predictions.

Kickoff is scheduled for 6:30 p.m. ET from SoFi Stadium in Southern California. The game will be televised on NBC.

2022 Super Bowl first-half winner

Odds via Tipico Sportsbook; access USA TODAY Sports Scores and Sports Betting Odds hub for a full list. Lines last updated Thursday at 3:10 a.m. ET.

First-half winner: Bengals (+150), Rams (-170), Tie (+1000)

Looking at the last 10 Super Bowls, two were tied at halftime: Chiefs-49ers two years ago and Patriots-Seahawks in the 2015 Super Bowl.

Two of the past 10 Super Bowl champs trailed at halftime. The Patriots rallied from 21-3 down to stun the Falcons 34-28 in the 2017 Super Bowl, and the Giants claimed a 21-17 victory over the Pats in the 2012 Super Bowl after trailing 10-9 at the break.

The other six times in the past 10 years, the eventual winner led at halftime.

More 2022 Super Bowl prop bet options

The Rams have led at halftime in two of their three postseason games. Of their 17 regular-season games, they trailed six times at halftime and were tied twice.

The Bengals led at halftime in two of their three postseason games. They trailed at halftime in eight of their 17 regular-season games.

There isn’t much to be said about their regular-season performances, as each team led at halftime in nine games in the regular season and two of three postseason games.

But looking at recent history, the most likely first-half winner is the one who will win the game and lift the Lombard Trophy.

I believe the Rams will ultimately be the champions, so take the chalky pick of the RAMS (-150) as the FIRST-HALF WINNER.

However, consider sprinkling something on TIE (+1000): FIRST-HALF WINNER. The payout is too great to pass up. It could be worth a hedge, at the very least.

2022 Super Bowl prop bets: First-half total

Looking at Los Angeles Rams vs. Cincinnati Bengals Super Bowl first-half total, with 2022 Super Bowl odds, picks and predictions.

The Los Angeles Rams meet the Cincinnati Bengals in their home building of SoFi Stadium Sunday for Super Bowl 56. Kickoff is scheduled for 6:30 p.m. ET. Below, we look at the Rams vs. Bengals Super Bowl first-half total with  NFL picks and predictions.

L.A. advanced to its second Super Bowl in the last four seasons by hammering the Cardinals 34-11 in the Wild Card Round, upsetting the defending champion Buccaneers 30-27 in the Divisional Round and beating the Niners 20-17 in the NFC title game.

Cincy returns to the Big Game for the third time in franchise history, but the last trip was in 1989 – they lost both games to a Joe Montana-led 49ers squad.

They made it to this one after beating the Raiders 26-19 in a Wild Card tilt, upsetting the AFC’s top-seeded Titans 19-16 in the Divisional Round and stunning the second-seeded Chiefs 27-24 in K.C. in the conference championship.

Rams-Bengals first-half total 

  • Over/Under (O/U): 23.5 (O: -115 | U: -105)

Odds via Tipico Sportsbook; access USA TODAY Sports Scores and Sports Betting Odds hub for a full list. Lines last updated Thursday at 2:22 p.m. ET.

OVER 23.5 (-115)

L.A. put up one of the biggest offensive duds in Super Bowl history when the Rams and head coach Sean McVay (aka the Boy Genius) were embarrassed 13-3 by the Patriots in Super Bowl 53.

But McVay should have learned from that performance and there’s no way this Cincy coaching staff can devise as good of a defensive game plan as New England’s did in 2019.

The Rams were 45-0 overall when leading after the first half in the McVay era (est. 2016) before L.A. blew a first-half lead in a 27-24 overtime loss to San Francisco in Week 18.

McVay knows Cincy will be in serious trouble if it has to come from behind since the Rams have one of the best pass rushes (DE Aaron Donald) in the league and the Bengals have struggled in pass protection.

In fact, Cincy QB Joe Burrow was sacked 9 times versus Tennessee in the AFC Divisional Round. The Rams and McVay will harness their nervous energy and go all out on the Bengals in the first half.

Also, much to my surprise, Cincy’s 10.6% return on investment on first-half Overs is the biggest in the NFL as the Bengals are 11-8-1 O/U in first halves this season, according to EVAnalytics.com.

Cincy goes Over the first-half total at the highest rate despite playing the third-slowest pace in the NFL. Plus, L.A. plays the fourth-fastest neutral situation pace, which further supports my previous point that the Rams will try to get out to a fast start.

While I give L.A.’s offense the edge in this matchup, Cincy’s offense is obviously potent and Burrow and Co. certainly have the talent to get into a shootout.

Furthermore, several NFL gambling podcasts and shows have touted the Under 23.5 (-105) first-half total for this Super Bowl, so it might end up as a quasi-popular betting derivative.

However, that pick seems somewhat lazy. Betting the first-half Under in NFL prime-time games was a very profitable system a few seasons ago.

The market is clinging to this outdated betting system and the oddsmakers are laying a trap by making the first-half Under cheaper.

BET FIRST-HALF OVER 23.5 (-115).

2022 Super Bowl prop bets: Tee Higgins receptions, receiving yards and TDs

Looking at Cincinnati Bengals Tee Higgins’ Super Bowl prop bets, with 2022 Super Bowl odds, picks and predictions.

The Cincinnati Bengals will play in the Super Bowl for the first time since 1989. While rookie WR Ja’Marr Chase has received most of the attention, 2020 second-round pick WR Tee Higgins has been a focal point of the offense as well.

With Los Angeles Rams CB Jalen Ramsey potentially shadowing the rookie Chase, Higgins could see additional responsibility.

The second-year, 6-foor-4 Higgins totaled 103 yards on 6 receptions against the Chiefs in the AFC Championship Game. He had 96 yards on 7 receptions against the Titans in the game prior.

Higgins has outdone his rookie campaign (67 receptions, 908 yards, 6 TDs), totaling 1,091 yards on 74 receptions with 6 touchdowns and 110 targets. Below, we look at Tee Higgins’s Super Bowl prop bets with  NFL picks and predictions.

Tee Higgins 2022 Super Bowl prop bets

Odds via Tipico Sportsbook; access USA TODAY Sports Scores and Sports Betting Odds hub for a full list. Lines last updated Thursday at 1:52 p.m. ET.

Receptions: Over 5.5 (+100)

Teams in the NFL are starting to pick up how important Chase is to this offense. He had 2 games of over 200 receiving yards during the regular season. The Titans and Chiefs looked to contain Chase.

That opens the door for Higgins, who topped 5 receptions in each of the last 2 games.

More importantly, he accrued 19 targets in the 2 games, so the Bengals are throwing the ball to him. Over the last 8 weeks of the season (playoffs included), Higgins is averaging 8.1 receptions.

The Rams allowed the 5th-most completions in the NFL during the regular season. This prop is a strong play on a Rams defense that allows a high volume of receptions.

Given Higgins has a 66% catch rate on the season, just an average game Sunday should do the trick. With Chase likely being the focal point for a solid Rams’ defense, I’d play Higgins OVER 5.5 receptions (+100).

See also:

Receiving yards: Over 71.5 (-114)

Higgins has topped this total in 6 of his last 9 games. It hasn’t even been particularly close either.

In each time hitting over 71 yards, he’s cleared 95 as well, reaching three digits in 5 of them. In 6 of those 9 games, he’s also cleared over 15 yards per reception, which is another huge reason he’s been able to top this prop.

The Rams give up the 21st-most receiving yards per game at 238.6 yards per outing.

Anytime touchdown: +160

I actually don’t like this bet. Higgins has 6 touchdowns on the season and has scored in just 5 games.

Plus, he didn’t score a touchdown in the Bengals’ three playoff wins.

With TE C.J. Uzomah having grown into a top red-zone target and WR Tyler Boyd having more prominence along with RB Joe Mixon getting touches within the final 20 yards, I’d stay away from this prop bet and focus on the above two Higgins prop bets for value.
