Super Bowl 56 Betting

Sadly for Louisiana sports bettors, the hometown New Orleans Saints fell a game short of reaching the 2022 NFL Playoffs.

However, there will still be plenty of Super Bowl betting opportunities with the Cincinnati Bengals, who boast former LSU standouts Joe Burrow and Ja’Marr Chase on the doorstep of the Super Bowl.

Of course, the Kansas City Chiefs stand in the Bengals’ way of the AFC Championship — but many places are offering at least a touchdown’s worth of points to take in ATS Louisiana betting.

More Louisiana Teams To Bet

Fans will also now get the opportunity to wager on their favorite teams immediately from their cell phone, whether they’re watching from home or the stands.

New Orleans Pelicans Betting

You’ll also get the chance to take advantage of all the basketball-related promotions that sportsbooks currently have on offer, including the Caesars Sportsbook free jersey promotion.

LSU Tigers Betting

LSU fans will soon be able to back their team as the college basketball regular season enters conference play. The Tigers are ranked inside the AP Top 25 and could be in for a deep NCAA Tournament run.
