Personally, I can’t help but root for Joe Burrow today. And while I won’t have any money on the line - I’ve officially ended my sports gambling and fantasy football career after years of misery - that doesn’t mean I can’t solicit, from my readers, what lines and what props they like.
I think Burrow is going get the win at the end of the day, despite Stafford’s pedigree and experience. And I think Joe Mixon is going to help pave the way. He’s my leading choice for MVP and if I were betting on the game - which I’m not - I’d be betting on Mixon to pop off for over 100 years and secure the MVP. I love Mixon at +3500 for MVP. It’s as good as chance, with good odds, as you can get for a player with a reasonable chance.
As of Sunday morning, here’s where the lines stand:
And here’s how some of the books have common prop bets for the game:
And here’s the odds for MVP:
I’d love to hear where your money is this game - and more specifically, what prop bets do you like? What players, individually, do you think will outperform? What stats do you need them to rake in and at what odds did you get your bet?
And for fun, per the Sporting News, here are some of the more interesting prop bets I could find:
Color of liquid poured on the winning coach:

LA wins by 3. MVP Cooper Kupp. Burrow sacked 6 times. Remember that the Bengals lost to the Bears and the Jets during the regular season.
Born and raised Cincinnatian here:
Joe Mixon anytime TD
Matt Stafford to throw +1 INT
Coin Flip: Heads
Evan McPherson to win MVP (+15000)
Stafford over 5.5 rushing yards
OBJ anytime TD
I'm an underdog bettor and can't help but like Burrow anyway. Bengals ML and Mixon to win MVP.
I had T. Boyd over 42.5 yards receiving, over 1.5 interceptions total, and first timeout by the Rams.
RAMS TAKE THE POINTS, DONALD MVP +1200, GREAT VALUE. I LIKE THE BENGALS TOO BUT THE RAMS HAVE THE BETTER DEFENSE, EXPERIENCE AND DESTINY(HOME STADIUM)
I'm with the Bengals. Just because I was one week old the last time they were playing in the super bowl. Hope it'll be worth staying up all night for
Bengals. Burrow has that winning gene and I liked them as a kid because they had a cool helmet. I also went for the most ridiculous prop I could find and bet on a power outage.
Burrow and the Bengals! All the experts have been saying Joe doesn't have what it takes from Ohio State to LSU and then the Bengals (he got to Ohio State because of Tom Herman the offensive coordinator there at the time). Urban Meyer didn't like him he said he threw like a girl? Joe! keep proving them wrong!!!! Go Bengals!
The fix was in for LA. BS holding call! Blew up all my prop bets and parlays :/
I'm just hoping the truckers shut the thing down to prevent the satanic 1/2 time ritual.
Need a prop that combines SPX futures open +|-, SB game and invasion - all happening between 6-7 PM?
OMG. Who gives a shit. Football is just another diversion run by corporations who don't care about you or I, or the actual truth.
