Top-10 Super Bowl LVI Prop Bets
Odds taken from Caesars Sportsbook. Click on the links below to head to the sportsbook and place your bet.
10) Both Teams Score 25+; Burrow & Stafford 250+ Passing Yds Each
|Both Teams Score||Odds|
This prop bet is interesting because both teams average 27.1 points per game this season and both Burrow and Stafford average more than 250 passing yards per game but can they both achieve those numbers in the Big Game in front of the world is the question and given this is two strong offenses facing two middling defenses, the answer should be is yes.
9) First Team to Score
|Los Angeles Rams||-140 |
|Cincinnati Bengals||+110 |
The first team to score might depend on which team gets the ball first, or the other way to bet here is to take Bengals QB Joe Burrow at his word when he calls his team a “second-half team” so count on the Rams to score first even if they don’t win the coin toss at the start of the game.
8) Team Scoring First Wins Game
According to the NFL numbers experts, in 2021 the teams that scored first have won 63.2 percent of the time while other experts say it’s more like 64-67 percent since the 2000 season, so take the YES on this bet and expect whichever team scores first to close the deal, too.
7) First Offensive Play of the Game
|First Offensive Play||Odds|
Since the run game for each of these teams is not as solid as the pass game, it might be tempting to assume they will both start out throwing bombs, but sometimes in big games like this the coach will game plan some safe runs at first to get out whatever jitters the team might have.

6) Any Non-Quarterback to Throw TD Pass in Super Bowl LVI
|Any Non-Quarterback to Throw TD Pass||Odds|
Here’s a fun bet for these two teams since there is always a good chance for a trick play or two in the big game (see: Philly Special), so with not QBs who can throw the ball (like WR Odell Beckham Jr.) expect to see at least an attempt at one in the red zone, a fun bet to root for here.
5) Any Kick to Hit the Uprights
To single- or double-doink the uprights has become commonplace in the NFL these days, with kickers being used at further distances and extra points, not a gimmee anymore, but both placekickers – Matt Gay and rookie Evan McPherson – seem too solid to doink anything in the Big Game.
4) Coin Toss Outcome
|Coin Toss Outcome||Odds|
|Cincinnati Bengals Win Toss||-105 |
|Los Angeles Rams Win Toss||-105 |
The visiting team gets to call the coin toss in the NFL, so that means that despite the game being in Los Angeles, the ‘visiting’ Rams will make that call, so expect them to call heads and win the toss, though chances are picking this bet is as good as a coin flip in itself.
Heads (-105); Los Angeles Rams win toss (-105)
3) Jersey Number of 1st Touchdown Scorer
|Under 23.5||-140 |
|Over 23.5||+110 |
Most NFL playmakers have lower jersey numbers, and in this game, for the Bengals that’s Ja’Marr Chase (#1) and for the Rams it’s Cooper Kupp (#10) and Van Jefferson (#12) and OBJ (#3), so this UNDER is a solid bet to take for the Super Bowl.
UNDER 23.5 (-140)
2) Will Same Team Win Coin Toss and Win Game?
|Toss and Win Game||Yes||No|
|Cincinnati Bengals||+350 |
|Los Angeles Rams||+170 |
We already went over this in Prop Bet #4, but bottom line this is the Rams’ bet to win or lose here, and given this is their home stadium, expect things to go their way, at least at first until the Bengals warm up, so take them to win this fun prop bet.
1) Color of Gatorade Poured on Winning Head Coach
Believe it or not, this prop bet is really a thing, and when you go back a certain number of Super Bowls you begin seeing a trend, including a lot of ‘BLUE’ in the last seven seasons (3/7) but there has been plenty of ‘ORANGE’ in the last dozen years (5/12) so take the ORANGE or go nuts and hope for the longshot ‘PURPLE’ to show up for the first time since Super Bowl XLVI in 2012.
