Super Bowl 56: 5 best bets for Cincinnati Bengals vs. Los Angeles Rams
5. Team to score longest field goal: Bengals +105
This one is fun, kind of like betting on the over to see more points happen in the game you are wagering on. Not only are you getting +105 on the Bengals to score the longest field goal of the game, but you are essentially betting on Cincinnati rookie kicker Evan McPherson to be Money Mac. He also has a chance to break an all-time postseason field goal record set by Adam Vinatieri.
Because McPherson has been money from distance this postseason, you can count on him to make a 50-yarder or two if need be. As for his counterpart in Matt Gay of the Rams, the guy was short on a 40-yarder three weeks ago at Tampa Bay. While this game will be at home for Gay, McPherson has made all of his big kicks outdoors in colder climates. This gives him a slight edge.
Ultimately, what this really comes down to is where can you make the most money. McPherson being +105 is better than Gay at -130. Since neither kicker is unequivocally better than the other, take McPherson to make a 50-yarder or so on his quest to break Vinatieri’s all-time record. To be fair, he probably has to make a big kick or two if the Bengals want to upset the Rams on Sunday.
Unless you’re a Rams or a Cleveland Browns fan, get behind McPherson doing Money Mac things.
