Jets X-Factor’s best bets for Super Bowl LVI

Super Bowl LVI is finally here. The Cincinnati Bengals are set to face the Los Angeles Rams at SoFi Stadium in a game that features plenty of interesting storylines, from the Bengals’ longshot run to the youngest head coaching matchup in Super Bowl history.

Let’s jump into Jets X-Factor’s best bets for Sunday’s matchup. We’re looking at two attractive totals as the best bets of the night.

All bets via FanDuel Sportsbook.

1st quarter: Under 10 points

Our first play of the day is going to be taking the under on 10 total points in the first quarter. This is one of my favorite Super Bowl bets as nine of the last 10 Super Bowls have stayed under 10 points in the first quarter.

I anticipate both teams really trying to feel each other out during the first few drives and not wanting to make any mistakes early. I also think both teams will want to establish the run at the start to settle everyone into the game.

The Super Bowl comes with a lot of nerves for the players and coaches. I see the game starting off slowly.

Under 48.5 points

The next play for Super Bowl LVI is going to be the under on 48.5 total points for the full game.

Both teams are coming into the Super Bowl playing great defense. In the AFC Championship, the Bengals held Kansas City’s fourth-ranked scoring offense to just 24 points, including three points in the entire second half.

The Bengals also held the Titans to 16 points and the Raiders to 19 points in their first two playoff wins. This unit is playing really well right now and refuses to give up a lot of points.

The Rams are only allowing 18 points per game throughout the playoffs. They are led by a stout pass rush that consistently causes fits for the opposing offense. I also think the Rams defense matches up particularly well against the Bengals offense.

They have a true No. 1 corner (Jalen Ramsey) to match up against Ja’Marr Chase and their pass rush will be a big problem for one of the league’s worst offensive lines.

I like this game to stay under 48.5 points.
