Against all odds, the Cincinnati Bengals are playing in the Super Bowl for the first time in more than 30 years.
Ja’Marr Chase and the Bengals completed a masterful 18-point comeback against the Kansas City Chiefs in the AFC Championship, tying the record for the largest comeback in Conference Championship history. What’s more, they beat the Chiefs in overtime after Kansas City won the coin toss.
Will Chase be able to put up a big performance as a rookie in the Super Bowl, or will the pressure get to him and the Bengals fall short of victory?
Let’s dive in to explore the best Chase player props you should take in Super Bowl 56 against the Los Angeles Rams.

Ja’Marr Chase Super Bowl Prop Bets
OVER 77.5 Receiving Yards (-115) at Caesars
Wager: 1 Unit
Chase had logged two consecutive playoff games with over 100 yards but was held in check last game against the Chiefs, mustering just 54 yards. The targets were there, and he’s done more damage on fewer catches (Chase had six), but the Chiefs kept him from going deep.
Chase can do a lot of damage with a minimal amount of targets. He finished second in the NFL in yards per target this season (11.4). Fortunately for Chase, the Rams struggle to contain receivers once they have the ball in their hands — Los Angeles allowed the third-most total yards after catch this year (2,471).

As Joe Burrow‘s favorite target, you have to expect him to look for Chase as often as possible. Jalen Ramsey should be shadowing him all game, but Chase is talented enough to get his opportunities.
It’s expected that the Bengals will be trailing in this matchup, as the Rams are currently 4-point favorites. If Cincinnati is trailing, Burrow will be throwing the ball more, which means Chase will get plenty of opportunities to get yards.
Take the Over here. Chase will perform well on the big stage.
Score 2+ Touchdowns (+490) at Caesars
Wager: 1 Unit
Chase has the second-best odds on Caesars for hitting this bet, and rightfully so.
He only has one touchdown in the playoffs so far, but that score came in his previous outing, helping him to build some momentum. He also led the Bengals during the regular season in touchdowns with 13.
As I said, the Bengals will most likely be trailing in this game, which gives Chase more opportunities to score. As a rookie, Chase has also scored 2+ touchdowns in three games this season.

Burrow and Chase’s chemistry dates back to their time together at LSU. In the National Championship game in 2019, Chase had nine catches for 221 yards and two touchdowns in a single half.
Don’t bet the house with this one, but you might look back and regret it if you didn’t put a little something into this bet.
