The Cincinnati Bengals have continued to defy the odds by making it to the Super Bowl for the first time since the 1988 season.
Joe Burrow led the Bengals to a historic comeback against Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs in the AFC Championship, tying the NFL record for the largest comeback in Conference Championship history (18 points). They even beat the Chiefs on the road in overtime after Kansas City won the coin toss.
Will Burrow be able to finish what he started and propel the Bengals to their first Super Bowl victory in franchise history? Or will his first postseason run end in heartbreak for Cincinnati?
Let’s dive in to explore the best Burrow player props you should take in Super Bowl 56 against the Los Angeles Rams.

Joe Burrow Super Bowl Prop Bets
OVER 276.5 Passing Yards (-115) at Caesars
Wager: 1 Unit
While Burrow has only hit this Over once in three playoff games thus far, I’m going to bet it anyway because I believe in him to put up big numbers in the biggest game of his career.
The Rams’ defense has been good this postseason, Tom Brady‘s near-comeback notwithstanding. Talent-wise, I obviously put Burrow below Brady but above Kyler Murray and Jimmy Garoppolo.
Burrow closed out the regular season by throwing for over 300 yards in four of his last five games to help Cincinnati clinch the AFC North. While his postseason stats have been less impressive, he has still played extremely well throughout the playoffs.
I know the 2019 CFP National Championship was a few years ago, but it’s relevant given that it’s the college football version of the Super Bowl. In that game, Burrow led LSU to victory by throwing for 463 yards and five touchdowns.
The second-year QB has a proven track record of playing well on the big stage. LA’s defense also just allowed an injured Garoppolo to throw for 232 yards and two touchdowns, so Burrow shouldn’t have too much trouble putting up strong numbers here.

OVER 1.5 Passing Touchdowns (-160) at Caesars
Wager: 2 Units
This is the Burrow prop you want to smash the Over on for our NFL bet of the day. He’s thrown multiple touchdowns in two of his three postseason games thus far and four of his last five games overall.
Burrow has plenty of weapons to throw to in Ja’Marr Chase, Tee Higgins, and Tyler Boyd. He also has running backs that can catch out of the backfield in Joe Mixon and Samaje Perine.
Los Angeles just allowed two TD passes to Garoppolo, who’d managed only three touchdown passes total over his previous five games combined. Their secondary is outstanding but its over-aggressiveness can be exploited.
I also expect Cincinnati to be trailing in this game, giving Burrow more opportunities to score through the air.

OVER 0.5 Interceptions (-145) at Caesars
Wager: 1 Unit
After throwing 14 picks in 16 regular-season games, Burrow has thrown interceptions in back-to-back playoff games. That’s a dangerous trend heading into this matchup with the Rams, who ranked third in interceptions during the regular season.
Los Angeles has forced at least one interception in every playoff game, tallying four in all. Look for that streak to continue against Burrow.
