The Cincinnati Bengals are getting ready to take on the Los Angeles Rams in Super Bowl 56 as both franchises attempt to take home a championship title. Of course, the Super Bowl is known as the biggest sports betting event of the year and there is a ton of value to be found in this year's matchup.

Finding a winner isn't always easy, though. And thanks to the sheer amount of betting options available on FanDuel Sportsbook, bettors might need some help zeroing in on the best values on the slate.

With that in mind, here are three of the safest, low-risk bets to target on Sunday on FanDuel Sportsbook.

Super Bowl Best Bets

1. Any Quarterback To Throw 400+ Yards: No (-1300)

Although Super Bowl 56 highlights a matchup between two stellar quarterbacks in Matthew Stafford and Joe Burrow, the likelihood of either reaching 400+ passing yards is slim. In fact, there have only been three previous Super Bowl performances where a quarterback hit 400 or more yards. Not to mention, Stafford hasn't had a single game with the Rams where he's hit that mark. Burrow has done it three different times this season, but it's unlikely considering both teams have surrendered 400+ passing yards just twice in a combined 40 games.

2. Safety During the Game: No (-1300)

Next up on our safest bets is one of those football rarities, a safety. FanDuel Sportsbook is giving bettors -1200 odds that there won't be a safety recorded during Super Bowl 56. That's a safe bet if we've ever seen one. Diving into Super Bowl history, the big game has only seen a safety scored nine different times. The last came in 2014 during Super Bowl XLVIII between the Seattle Seahawks and Denver Broncos. Better yet, the NFL saw only two safeties scored the entire year over the course of 272 total games.

3. Cooper Kupp Alt Receiving Yards - 50+ Yards: -3000

It's been more than a year since Cooper Kupp finished a game with under 50 receiving yards, dating back to Week 14 in December of 2020. He was the NFL's top wide receiver this season for good reason, totaling 1,947 receiving yards and 16 touchdowns across 17 regular-season games. Kupp is also on the heels of back-to-back games where he put up 142 and 183-yard performances. Don't expect the league's top wideout to slow down under the brightest of lights.

Bet $5 to win $280 on either team to win Super Bowl 56!
