Matthew Stafford remains the talk of the town for sports betting customers heading into Super Bowl LVI this Sunday.
With all the Super Bowl player props available on Michigan sportsbook apps, it’s a great opportunity to add to your bankroll on his arm.
If you’re rooting for Stafford to do well, here’s a way to take $20 and spread it around into five different wagers.
Each wager is varying in value, but all are centered on the former Detroit Lion having a big day when the Los Angeles Rams face the Cincinnati Bengals.
Super Bowl player props: Matthew Stafford for MVP +135
Stafford comes into Super Bowl LVI as the favorite for one of the most popular Super Bowl player props: MVP.
The odds aren’t great no matter where you look. But, as the starting QB of the team favored to win, it’s understandable.
BetMGM Michigan has the longest odds for this wager at +135. That’s a $9.40 payout for a $4 wager.
The MVP of the Super Bowl has been a QB 31 times and in four of the last five years.
Stafford certainly fits the mold, as he’s capable of throwing for more than 300 yards and multiple touchdowns. Up against the league’s 26th-ranked pass defense, it’s reasonable to believe he will continue his strong postseason play.
Should the Rams win, Stafford being the MVP seems quite likely.
Stafford passing yards: Over/under 279.5
With the Bengals ranking fifth in rush defense and 26th in pass defense, it seems Stafford will have to lead the Rams to a win on Sunday.
BetRivers Sportsbook MI is offering up an over/under of 279.5 passing yards for the game. Both the over and under sit at -110. That’s a $7.64 payout for a $4 wager.
Stafford has eclipsed 300 yards in his last two games. He’s also thrown for at least 280 yards in 13 of L.A.’s 20 games this season.
Cincinnati gave up 310 passing yards to Derek Carr in the Wild Card round of the playoffs. However, the Bengals held Patrick Mahomes to 275 yards in the AFC Championship.
There is also a chance the Rams storm out to a big lead early and try to milk the clock, which would affect his output.
Stafford longest pass completion: Over/under 39.5 yards
Caesars Sportsbook MI is offering this at -115 on both sides.
Stafford is known for airing it out and has gone over this number 13 times in 20 games. That includes twice in this postseason.
The Bengals aren’t big on the pass rush, so Stafford will have to pick and choose throughout the game. However, he also has receivers that can take a short pass and make it a big gain. Cooper Kupp and Odell Beckham Jr. are elusive players that can rack up yards after the catch.
While not a huge payout ($7.48), it could still be a fun wager that literally would be decided in one play.
Matthew Stafford anytime TD scorer: +900
BetMGM Michigan is offering this up at the longest odds.
With the +900 odds, should Stafford score, that is a $40 payout on a $4 wager. That alone makes you a winner on the day if all other bets fail.
Stafford has found himself with a rushing TD in two of the three playoff games this season. It just takes a QB sneak to make it happen.
Also, consider Sean McVay is a creative offensive mind and Beckham Jr. has a history of throwing for touchdowns. I don’t think it’s out of the realm of possibilities we see another “Philly Special” like we saw in Super Bowl LII.
Matthew Stafford has already been part of a similar play, scoring on a 2-point conversion during his time with the Lions.
Stafford 5-leg single game parlay: +1300
If you’re really looking to max out that $4 wager, this five-pick Super Bowl player props parlay from DraftKings Sportsbook MI may be for you.
Here’s what it entails for Matthew Stafford to do on Sunday:
- 2+ Passing Touchdowns
- 6+ Rushing Yards
- 40+ Longest Passing Completion
- 280+ Total Passing Yards
- 30+ Passing Completions
That provides +1300 odds and will pay out $56 for a $4 wager.
This is an all-around big day for Stafford. The two touchdowns are something he has done in all three playoff games thus far. The same goes for the 6+ rushing yards.
From there, you just need one long pass of 40 yards, which you could already be betting on.
