Player, team and entertainment props are starting to gain more attention as we inch closer to Super Bowl LVI.
Welcome to Super Bowl week at Sports Interaction. It’s Super Bowl LVI and the hype is real at Sports Interaction. Once the Rams put the finishing touches on their win against 49ers in the NFC Championship the busy lines management team at Sports Interaction opened the Super Bowl odds with the Rams as 4-point favourites versus Bengals and the game total at 48.5.
Sunday, February 13:
This year the Super Bowl will be played (today!) on February 13, the latest date it has ever been scheduled. The earliest date was Super Bowl XI on January 9, 1977. This year will also be the first time both Super Bowl coaches will be under the age of 40 making it the youngest head coaching matchup. The L.A. Rams head coach Sean McVay is 36 and Cincinnati’s head coach Zac Taylor is 38.
I like the Cincinnati Bengals +3.5 points. There’s something about this team that found different ways of winning the last two post season games to make it to this point. Perhaps it was the Evan McPherson winning kick on the road against the Titans. Or, as 7-point underdogs, made their way to Kansas City and knocked off the Chiefs in overtime. Will Joe Burrow deliver the city of Cincinnati’s first ever Super Bowl? We shall see.
ENJOY THE SUPERBOWL.
Saturday, February 12:
Welcome to your Saturday Super Bowl update. WE HAVE MOVEMENT ON THE LINE. Yes, you read that correctly. The Los Angeles Rams open up this morning as 3.5-point favourites at Sports Interaction. Bengals moneyline bets continue to flow in. The last six Super Bowl underdogs of four points or more covered. The game total still sits at 48.5 points and the public lean is to the over. It should be noted that the under has hit in three straight and four of the last six Super Bowls.
The forecast for kickoff on Sunday is currently 85 degrees and sunny. If that holds, Super Bowl will be the hottest Super Bowl ever.

Good morning football fans, all is calm on the odds front for this year’s Super Bowl.

Good morning Super Bowl fans. As we inch closer to the big game, movement on the Rams -4 number is at a stand still, as the money continues to be split between the two teams. We can report that yesterday’s game total of 48.5 still has a lean to the over.
The individual player props were released to the public on Tuesday afternoon and it felt like Christmas Day for many football fans. The props that are continuing to gain popularity (no surprise here ) is, anything with Joe Burrow involved. Burrow is listed in all the quarterback props but one of the more interesting Burrow props is his rushing prop total, currently marked at 11.5 yards.
The two Quarterbacks in this game are the favourites to win the Super Bowl MVP trophy. Rams pivot Matthew Stafford (+120) is the favourite, followed by Bengals signal-caller Joe Burrow (+215).
In the last 12 years, a Quarterback has taken home the MVP trophy nine times. The only three non-quarterbacks to win it over that time were: Julian Edelman (2019-Patriots), Von Miller (2016-Broncos) and Malcolm Smith (2014-Seahawks). Ironically, Miller could be a major factor in this game. Feel like a longshot play? Miller is paying +2200 to win his second trophy.
Receiver Cooper Kupp is the first non-quarterback receiving the best odds at +510. Interestingly enough, Bengals kicker Evan MacPherson is a respectable +6500 and drawing some looks to take home the prize. If successful, he would become the first kicker ever to win the Super Bowl MVP.
It appears that Bengals TE C.J. Uzomah will be ready to play Sunday. Uzomah was unable to finish the AFC Championship game and was carted off the field in the first half with a knee injury. He told the media Tuesday that he will be on the field, “I’m not missing the biggest game of my life.”
Tuesday, February 8:
All is quiet on the odds front as we inch closer to the big day. When talking to the Lines Management group earlier this morning, the “quietness” of the number isn’t a shock, “we wouldn’t be surprised if it stays at 4 until Sunday.”
Currently at Sports Interaction the sides are balancing out perfectly, so there is no need to change the number. The game total sits at 48.5 points and there is a slight lean to the over at this time.
Sports Interaction is expected to release its player props later today/Wednesday. You can check them out at here: NFL & Super Bowl Betting Odds, Spreads | Sports Interaction. Each day more and more props will be added to this list.
The Bengals plan to arrive in Los Angeles today and are expected to practice at UCLA’s Drake Stadium. We should know more about the status of Tight End C.J. Uzomah (MCL sprain) later today. “I think it will be important that we (go early to Los Angeles), but it’s always easy to transition from not-so-great weather to good weather,” Bengals defensive coordinator Lou Anarumo said Tuesday.

Monday, February 7:
For a second consecutive season, the Super Bowl host will be playing in the big game. However, the Bengals, not the Rams, will be the official home team for Super Bowl LVI due to the NFL alternating the designation between conferences each year. This means they’ll use the Rams’ typical home-stadium locker room at SoFi Stadium.
The Rams will be making their fifth Super Bowl appearance, and their second in the last four years. The Rams last appeared in the Super Bowl in 2018 when the Patriots defeated them, 13-3, in the lowest-scoring Super Bowl of all time.
This will be third appearance in the Super Bowl for the Bengals franchise. Their first two — in 1981 and 1988 — were both against the 49ers. They lost to San Francisco both times, and each time by one score.
Rams TE Tyler Higbee (MCL sprain) and Bengals TE C.J. Uzomah (MCL sprain) are both on the sidelines entering Super Bowl week. They are the two biggest question marks on the injury front.
Los Angeles backup TE Kendall Blanton caught five passes the NFC Championship Game, and Blanton could have a significant role again if Higbee is unable to play. The Bengals don’t have that same luxury as Drew Sample caught only 12 passes all season, playing in a very limited role.
