Looking for some extra excitement during Super Bowl 56? Play NFL Daily Fantasy Sports (DFS) this Sunday and enjoy the big game between the Los Angeles Rams and Cincinnati Bengals even more.
If you’re looking for a way to combine the fun of betting and fantasy football, Underdog Fantasy may be the perfect site for you.
Unlike the typical salary cap lineup construction format that most DFS sites follow, Underdog has users build their own parlays by selecting Over or Under on up to five specific player props instead. The more props you select, the higher the multiplier on the entry fee.
Another unique game on Underdog is called Battle Royale, where users enter a snake draft of three, four, or six people and choose a roster. Then, you compete against the entire pool, and if your team scores the most, you win!
Now that you understand how Underdog Fantasy works, it’s time to give you my sleeper draft picks and DFS football predictions for Super Bowl 56!
They don’t call me the “Head of Winning" at Underdog Fantasy for nothing.
Prop stats information for NFL DFS Super Bowl picks is current as of Wednesday, February 9, at 11 a.m. ET.
Underdog Fantasy Super Bowl Sleeper Picks
Users can enter two different Battle Royales for the Super Bowl for a chance of winning a share of $100,000 in prizes.
Target these sleepers in your Underdog Super Bowl Drafts:
Tee Higgins, WR, Cincinnati Bengals
If Los Angeles shadows Ja’Marr Chase with Jalen Ramsey (which they probably will), that opens up Tee Higgins to have a big game.
With 199 receiving yards over his last two games combined, Higgins will be able to take advantage of the Rams’ weaker cornerbacks.

Kendall Blanton, TE, Los Angeles Rams
With Tyler Higbee (knee) questionable for Sunday, I have Kendall Blanton as a super sleeper. He stepped up after Higbee’s early exit in the NFC Championship Game, hauling in all five of his targets for 57 receiving yards.
Sean McVay likes his tight ends, so Blanton has a ton of value here.

Underdog DFS Prop Games: Super Bowl Edition
Users can parlay up to five NFL fantasy picks together to win up to 20 times your entry fee.
Joe Burrow, QB, Cincinnati Bengals
OVER 1 Passing Yard (SPECIAL)
Yes, you are seeing this correctly. This is a special line that Underdog Fantasy is doing for the NFL Playoffs.
Keep in mind, though, that you only get to use one special line throughout the postseason. So if you haven’t used one yet, you can cash in on this Joe Burrow special.
Obviously, I’m taking the Over here for our NFL bet of the day.
Matthew Stafford, QB, Los Angeles Rams
UNDER 5.5 Rushing Yards
Matthew Stafford has been rushing the ball a lot in the playoffs with 15 carries for 36 yards and two touchdowns. He’s hit this Over in all three postseason games thus far.
With Los Angeles favored to win according to NFL betting odds, however, there’s a good chance Stafford will be kneeling at the end of the game, which will cost him some rushing yards.
Van Jefferson, WR, Los Angeles Rams
OVER 18.5 Yards Longest Reception
Van Jefferson’s targets have been down since Odell Beckham Jr. joined the Rams, but Jefferson’s average depth of target is still the highest on the team (13.5).
Jefferson also leads Los Angeles in most yards per reception (16.0) and had the longest reception on the team this year (79 yards), which bodes well for this prop.
Joe Mixon, RB, Cincinnati Bengals
UNDER 92.5 Rushing + Receiving Yards
I think LA’s defensive line will control the ground game, which will limit Joe Mixon. Samaje Perine also popped with 43 receiving yards in the AFC Championship Game, so the Bengals will likely utilize him more in the passing game.
There are just a lot of factors working against Mixon here, making the Under the more likely outcome.
RIVALS: Joe Burrow vs Matthew Stafford (Passing Yards)
Pick: Joe Burrow +5.5
Cincinnati will likely be trailing in this one, which will lead to Burrow throwing the ball more than Stafford. Once Los Angeles gets the game under control, they’ll likely lean on Cam Akers and Sony Michel to chew up clock and protect the lead.

Los Angeles Rams @ Cincinnati Bengals
The Rams are simply the better team overall. It’ll be scary to see this Los Angeles defensive line going up against Cincinnati’s offensive line, which has done a poor job protecting Burrow lately.
Speaking of Burrow, his playoff performance is being way overstated. He’s been good, but he only has four touchdown passes in three games.
The Bengals’ defense has saved them throughout the postseason, but I don’t know if they’ll be able to do it again here. The Rams have a really balanced attack, including the NFL’s best receiver in Cooper Kupp.
I’m taking the Rams in their home stadium.
