How to Bet Matthew Stafford Super Bowl Prop Bets
The Super Bowl is all about the quarterbacks and Super Bowl 56 is no different. The Bengals Joe Burrow and the Rams Matthew Stafford are the most important players for this Super Bowl. Many people will bet on props like the National Anthem and the coin toss, but the player props are where you make your money. We already covered the Joe Burrow betting props, so now it is time to look at the Matthew Stafford Super Bowl prop bets.
Since coming to the LA Rams, Matthew Stafford has been very good at throwing for multiple touchdowns in one game. This is why he is the favorite to win the MVP. Although another player will win the MVP award, Stafford will still toss more than one touchdown in the Super Bowl. He has passed for more than one touchdown in 80 percent of his games this season and that includes five straight games.
This is a tricky play that looks too good to be true. All you have to do is avoid anyone scoring a touchdown from the 1-yard line. Sounds easy, right? In the playoffs, only 9 percent of touchdowns were from the 1-yard line, but Matthew Stafford has two of them. There is at least one 1-yard touchdown in five of the last six Super Bowl games. A pass interference call makes this an easy call from the 1-yard line. Don’t be fooled into betting the over for the popular prop, bet the under. Stafford scores a rushing touchdown and the shortest touchdown is less than 1.5 yards.
Stafford has Cooper Kupp and Odell Beckham Jr to work with and they are two very explosive wide receivers that can produce big plays. The Bengals shut down Patrick Mahomes in the AFC Championship game, but they are notorious for giving up big plays. They allow 367.1 yards per game and they are vulnerable against the deep pass. Stafford completed 18 passes or 40 or more yards, which was the best in the league. The run will open up the pass and Stafford will connect on a long pass.
