Mobile sports betting is now live in Louisiana, and the Super Bowl between the Cincinnati Bengals and Los Angeles Rams on Feb. 13 gives Bayou bettors a chance to get in on the action. There are thousands of ways to bet the Super Bowl, and the player prop market is seemingly endless.
With multiple former LSU Tigers on both Super Bowl LVI rosters, let’s take a look at the best LSU alum prop bets for Super Bowl LVI.
LSU Prop Bets For Super Bowl 56
Bengals QB Joe Burrow Over 36.5 Pass Attempts (-106 at FanDuel Louisiana)
Joe Burrow, who won the Heisman Trophy and led LSU to the national championship in 2019, has been letting it fly throughout this postseason. In three playoff games, Burrow has attempted 34, 37, and 38 passes. Going back further, in his final two regular-season games, both of which had a playoff feel, Burrow attempted 46 passes against the Ravens and 39 against the Chiefs. It’s clear Zac Taylor has no issue putting the Bengals’ fate in Burrow’s right arm, and there isn’t much to suggest that should change in the biggest game of the year.
In addition, the matchups up front could suggest even more throws for Burrow. Los Angeles possesses a daunting defensive line that is capable of getting through Cincinnati’s weak offensive line. Because of that, Taylor and the Bengals may look to get the ball out of Burrow’s hands early. This could result in short, high-percentage throws as the Bengals look to methodically move the ball down the field. All in all, the 2019 Heisman Trophy winner could see another high volume of passes on Sunday.

Rams WR Odell Beckham Jr. Over 62.5 Receiving Yards (-110 at FanDuel Louisiana)
When Odell Beckham Jr. first joined the Rams in mid-November, he wasn’t very involved in the offense. However, as time has gone on, his production has increased. The former LSU standout has been especially effective in the postseason. In three playoff games, Beckham Jr. has hauled in 19 of 23 targets for 236 yards and one touchdown.
He is coming off his first triple-digit performance of the season with a 113-yard effort in the NFC Championship Game against the 49ers. It seems that the chemistry between QB Matthew Stafford and Beckham Jr. has gotten better, and with WR Cooper Kupp drawing so much attention from the Cincinnati secondary, don’t be surprised if Beckham Jr. has a big day. Consider the over with his receiving yards prop.

Ja’Marr Chase Over 5.5 Receptions (-135 at Caesars Louisiana)
The Bengals drafted Ja’Marr Chase No. 5 overall in the 2021 NFL Draft, and his connection with Burrow, which began at LSU and helped the Tigers win the2019 national title, has been spectacular this season. Over the course of the regular season, Chase hauled in 81 catches for 1,455 yards and 13 touchdowns. In the postseason, Chase has 20 catches for 279 yards and a touchdown. He has been targeted 27 times in three playoff games, and if the Bengals want to walk out of Los Angeles with a win, they will need to get Chase involved.
Chase has surpassed this number twice in the playoffs, and it seems likely that Burrow looks to Chase early and often. If the Bengals do end up winning, there is also solid value on Chase to win Super Bowl MVP at +2500.
