It’s Super Bowl time, which is essentially Christmas for sports bettors.
The NFL championship game is especially fun to bet on because anything can happen in one game. Linemen can score touchdowns. Defensive players can win MVP. Longshot bets can get paid out.
And we’re here to help you cash in.

Michel is a battering ram, pardon the pun, and will likely be used as the closer if Los Angeles has the lead in the second half. He’ll also be important near the goal line, as trying to bring down the 5-11, 215-pound back is like tackling a bowling ball.
Cam Akers has stolen a lot of Michel’s thunder over LA’s past two playoff games, limiting Michel to just 20 total rushing yards on 11 carries. Quarterback Matthew Stafford, who has a pair of one-yard scoring plunges, is the only Rams player to rush for a touchdown this postseason.

Los Angeles has no shortage of weapons on the goal line, but this is worth a sprinkle for our NFL bet of the day given the plus odds and the fact that it’ll likely take a runner of Michel’s stature to crack the Bengals’ stingy goal-line defense.

Cincinnati’s lone rushing touchdown allowed in the playoffs was by Derrick Henry, who is bigger but has a similar rushing style to Michel rather than shifty backs like Akers.
