Super Bowl 56 is complete and in the history books.
With his third sack of the game, Aaron Donald pummeled Cincinnati Bengals QB Joe Burrow into the ground to seal the victory. The Los Angeles Rams capped off an all-in season with a Super Bowl victory and wide receiver Cooper Kupp was named Super Bowl 56 MVP.
Below, we’ll break down some of the important NFL Super Bowl betting results and give a full Super Bowl betting recap from the game at SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, California.
Super Bowl 56: Betting Results
The Moneyline: This was a tight one, with nearly half the money going to both sides at most of the major books. Los Angeles trailed by four points entering the fourth quarter, but Matt Stafford and the Rams defense sealed the game with big plays late to lift Rams bettors in Super Bowl LVI.
Result: Rams (-190)
The Spread: As of the day before the Super Bowl, at BetOnline Sportsbook, 59.3 percent of the money was on the Bengals to cover a +4 spread and it hit – sorry to those who faded the public.
Result: Bengals +4 (-112)
The OVER/UNDER: Bettors saw a star-studded Los Angeles defense and a Bengals team that entered Super Bowl Sunday with UNDERs hitting in four of its previous five games and latched on the low score. 56.3 percent of the money was on the UNDER 49.5 points over at BetOnline Sportsbook ahead of Super Bowl 56, and the majority was right on this one!
Result: UNDER 49.5 (-110)
Surprise Hits And Value Bets From Super Bowl 56
It wasn’t just the Los Angeles Rams players and fans celebrating as Super Bowl Sunday drifted into Monday. Some of the best value prop bets of the big game hit on Sunday, and anyone lucky enough to be on them made some serious cash.
Gatorade Color: Blue (+400)
One of the most popular bets for Super Bowl 56 was wagering on what color Gatorade would be dumped over the winning coach. If you followed our betting advice and Gatorade color pick, you would’ve nailed the underdog pick, with blue cascading over Sean McVay’s shoulders after the Rams win.
At halftime, the line for blue moved up to +325 based off mid-game bets and perhaps some respect for the Rams.
Player Post-Game Proposal: Yes (+400)
One of our featured Super Bowl Exotic Prop Bets, you could’ve nabbed some nice plus money on a player to propose after Super Bowl 56 over at Bovada.
All the Yes bettors were cheering when Rams defensive back Taylor Rapp got down on one knee on the SoFi turf and proposed to his now fiancee. Another ring on Super Bowl Sunday!
Non-QB Passing Touchdown: Yes (+500)
Zac Taylor and Sean McVay are two of the most creative and craftiest head coaches in the National Football League, so we probably should’ve seen this one coming.
While Joe Burrow and Matthew Stafford did most of the passing Sunday, both the Rams and Bengals allowed a non-QB to throw the ball. Los Angeles’ Cooper Kupp threw an incompletion, but Bengals RB Joe Mixon got it done. Mixon threw a six-yard scoring reception to receiver Tee Higgins. Mixon’s TD pass helped give the Bengals Super Bowl hope and helped cash a great value prop.
Super Bowl MVP: Cooper Kupp (+600)
Entering Super Bowl Sunday, the top three bets for Super Bowl MVP at BetOnline Sportsbook were Bengals QB Joe Burrow (+325), Rams defender Aaron Donald (+800) and wide receiver Cooper Kupp (+600).
While the Super Bowl MVP history heavily favors quarterbacks, the many bettors who took a shot on star receiver Kupp nailed it. After a slow start to the game, Kupp turned it on in the second half and finished the game with eight receptions for 92 yards and two touchdowns.
If you were smart enough to bet on Kupp with the game entering the fourth quarter, you could’ve snagged odds as high as +900 at Bovada.
