It is not unusual to hear about people betting on the Super Bowl because they want to feel more invested in the game. With money on the line, be it on the outcome or one of many Super Bowl prop bets, every play is a little more exciting. But even if people bet to make the game more fun, they still want to do one thing — win money.
What’s the sense in risking your hard-earned money if you aren’t going to at least double it if you win? To do that, the odds for your wager need to be at least +100. These are some of the best plus-money Super Bowl prop bets available at Arizona sportsbooks.
Super Bowl 56 on Sunday, Feb. 13, will pit the Cincinnati Bengals against the Los Angeles Rams.
Best Super Bowl Prop Bets: Passing/Receiving/Rushing
Rams RB Cam Akers Total Rushing Yards Under 63.5 (+105 at Caesars Arizona)
Akers was an absolute stud as a rookie and has played well since returning from the Achilles injury he suffered during the offseason. If he was 100 percent, there is a chance the Rams would lean on him a little more against the Bengals, but he is not. Akers has missed several practices because of a shoulder injury.
Combine that with his postseason average of 2.8 yards per carry, and it is unlikely he gains 63.5+ yards on the ground in Super Bowl 56.

Rams WR Cooper Kupp Number Of Targets Over 11.5 (+100 at Caesars Arizona)
While that number seems a bit high, Kupp was targeted 11 times against the Buccaneers and 14 times against the 49ers. He was targeted 11+ times during the regular season 10 times. In the Super Bowl, it would be shocking if QB Matthew Stafford did not throw to his favorite target early and often.
Cooper Kupp and Bengals WR Ja’Marr Chase To Combine for 200+ Receiving Yards (+115 at FanDuel Arizona)
We are talking about two of the best wide receivers in the game playing on teams that live and die by the passing game. The Rams’ defense may keep Chase from blowing up, but it would be surprising if Kupp did not have a big game. Between the two, they should combine for 200+ yards.

Matthew Stafford Pass Completions Over 24.5 (+100 at DraftKings Arizona)
The Rams acquired Stafford to get the team to the Super Bowl and then win it with his arm. They will run the ball to keep the Bengals’ defense honest but will lean on Stafford to get it done in the passing game. Stafford had 25+ completions in eight games during the regular season and twice in the playoffs. It would not be shocking to see him throw the ball 40 times and complete at least 25.
Best Super Bowl Prop Bets: Touchdown Scorers
Ja’Marr Chase Anytime Touchdown Scorer (+100 at DraftKings Arizona)
Chase had at least one touchdown in six of his first eight games, but he scored in three of the last nine during the regular season. He scored against the Chiefs in the AFC Championship game, but not in the other two playoff games. However, in the biggest game of the year, it would be shocking if QB Joe Burrow did not target his best receiver in the end zone.
Best Super Bowl Prop Bets: Defensive/Special Teams
Leonard Floyd To Record A Sack (+130 at FanDuel Arizona)
The Cincinnati offensive line has struggled to protect Joe Burrow, giving up 55 sacks during the regular season and 12 in the playoffs. However, nine of those came against Tennessee in the Divisional Round. Priority number one for the Bengals’ O-line will be keeping Rams DE Aaron Donald out of the backfield. There will not be enough blockers to take care of Donald and Floyd, so Floyd may not see a single double-team.
If you think the Rams’ defense will shut down the Bengals’ offense, you will want to pass on this one, but it is not hard to imagine the Bengals scoring at least three touchdowns. Bengals kicker Evan McPherson has been automatic during the playoffs but did miss two during the regular season.
