After failing to win a playoff game during 12 grueling seasons with the Detroit Lions, Matthew Stafford has led the Los Angeles Rams to the Super Bowl in his first year on the West Coast.
While the road to the big game hasn’t been easy, Stafford has been outstanding every step of the way. After putting together one of the best regular-season campaigns of his career, Stafford has played even better during LA’s three postseason victories.
Will Stafford step up again in his first career Super Bowl? Let’s dive in to explore which prop bets you should target for the Rams quarterback in Super Bowl 56 against the Cincinnati Bengals.

Matthew Stafford Super Bowl Prop Bets
OVER 284.5 Passing Yards (-115) at BetMGM
Wager: 1 Unit
After a shaky finish to the regular season, Stafford has caught fire in the playoffs, averaging 301.7 passing yards per game despite facing three tough defenses.
It’s also an encouraging trend that Stafford has seen his pass attempts rise in each round of the postseason, from 17 to 38 to 45. Given LA’s inconsistency on the ground, Stafford is their most reliable way of moving the ball downfield.
Now he’ll face a mediocre Bengals unit that surrendered the seventh-most passing yards during the regular season. He’ll also benefit from playing on his home turf at SoFi Stadium, where he’s exceeded this prop seven times in 10 games this season.
After throwing for well over 300 yards in each of his last two games, Stafford appears poised for another big performance.

Stafford’s been money with this prop lately, throwing multiple touchdowns in all three of his postseason games and nine of his last 10 contests dating back to the regular season.

He’ll look to keep that streak going against Cincy, who just allowed Patrick Mahomes to throw three touchdown passes in the first half of the AFC Championship Game.
In a possible shootout against Joe Burrow, Stafford should have no problem finding the end zone multiple times again for our NFL bet of the day.
UNDER 0.5 Interceptions (+105) at BetMGM
Wager: 1 Unit
After throwing eight picks during his final four regular-season games, Stafford has done a much better job taking care of the football lately. Of his 100 postseason pass attempts, only one has been intercepted.
I love the value here at plus-odds and am betting on a third interception-free playoff game from Stafford, especially with Cincinnati’s defense ranking 15th in picks during the regular season. Stafford has done a tremendous job limiting his mistakes in the postseason, which is a big part of how the Rams have gotten this far.
