For those sports bettors looking for a unique way to spend a part of your betting kitty, look no further than these prop bets centered around one of the highest-scoring positions on an NFL team – the placekicker – and Super Bowl LIV will have two excellent football booters playing.
The Los Angeles Rams will start PK Matt Gay and they are considered the visitors despite playing in SoFi Stadium, their home venue, an advantage that the ‘home team’ Cincy Bengals’ rookie kicker Evan McPherson can overcome given his perfect 12-for-12 postseason FG record.
Super Bowl LVI is being played indoors, so neither kicker will be affected by the weather, and these top five kicker prop bets could be a fun way to make the Big Game even more interesting with our best predictions, odds, and picks to help you make the wisest wagers yet.
Good luck, win big!
Top-5 Super Bowl LVI Kicker Props
Odds taken from DraftKings. Click on the links below to head to the sportsbook and place your bet.
1st Field Goal Made
|Los Angeles Rams||-110 |
|Cincinnati Bengals||-110 |
During the regular season, both the Cincy Bengals and the Los Angeles Rams averaged 27.1 points per game and they both like to use their strong passing attack to get in the end zone often, so field goals will most likely take a back seat to touchdowns in this one, and since both teams use their kickers wisely, the idea that neither would score is the longshot here.
Total Field Goals Made
|Los Angeles Rams||O 1.5 (-170) |
|U 1.5 (+125) |
|Cincinnati Bengals||O 1.5 (-115) |
|U 1.5 (-115)|
When it comes to kicking field goals, the Rams kicked and made 32 field goals this season and the Bengals have kicked and 28, and Cincinnati has had twelve 2+ field goal games and Los Angeles has had fifteen of them, though the Bengals have made 12 postseason field goals out of twelve and the Rams have made seven of nine field goals in the playoffs, so take the overs.
Total Kicking Points
|Evan McPherson||O 7.5 (-140)||U 7.5 (-110)|
|Matt Gay||O 7.5 (-125)||U 7.5 (-120)|
This prop bet adds the field goals and extra points made by the placekicker so for then to score 8 points or higher this would need to be a high scoring game, and since the oddsmakers are setting the total points line at 48.5, they obviously see this battle of deep threat receivers as a potentially high scoring affair, so the over for this prop bet seems to be the logical choice.
Longest Field Goal Made
|Los Angeles Rams||+105|
Both placekickers on these Super Bowl LVI teams have kicked a 58-yard field goal, the Bengals rookie McPherson having done it in the 2021 regular season and the Rams’ Gay having kicked his during his rookie campaign in 2019, so it comes down to which one of these two will be put in that position, and with the way the Bengals’ kicker has been perfect in the playoffs, take him.
Cincinnati Bengals (-105)
Total Points After Touchdowns Made
|Evan McPherson||O 2.5 (+115)||U 2.5 (-150)|
|Matt Gay||O 2.5 (+105)||U 2.5 (-125)|
This season, the Bengals’ rookie placekicker McPherson has made 95.8 percent of his extra point attempts for a total of 46 points, and the Rams’ three-year pro Gay has made 98 percent of his extra point attempts for a total of 48 points, so since this prop bet should see both kickers active in this projected high-scoring matchup, the over makes the most sense for both.
