He's not quite the household name that his teammate Ja'Marr Chase is, but Tee Higgins has proven he's a flat-out stud. The second-year wideout has totaled 1,999 receiving yards and 12 touchdowns in his first two NFL seasons, and his postseason play is a huge reason the Bengals made it to Super Bowl LVI.

Now, he's a great dark-horse value to win the Super Bowl LVI MVP award.

Tee Higgins Super Bowl MVP Odds

FanDuel Sportsbook lists Higgins at +6000 to win the award, giving him the ninth-best odds in the game and the fourth-best odds on Cincinnati.

Higgins has been dominating one-on-one matchups recently. He's turned 19 targets into 13 receptions for 199 yards over his last two, outdoing Chase in all three categories during that span. There's a lot to suggest that trend will continue in Super Bowl LVI.

Assuming Los Angeles sticks Jalen Ramsey on Chase, something the shutdown CB has been campaigning to do, Higgins would see a lot of Rams CB2 Darious Williams. That's not good for LA.

You don't have to be a football genius to realize this is a mismatch. Higgins is a physical, 6-foot-4 receiver with a massive wingspan and catch radius, while Williams is 5'8" and about 30 pounds lighter. It's a mismatch on the eye test alone, but the underlying numbers back that up and then some.

Williams has been getting torched this postseason. He's surrendering a passer rating of 102.1 when targeted in coverage in the NFL Playoffs, allowing 9.8 yards per target and 18.2 yards per completion.

To put those numbers into perspective, his yards per target number would've put him in the bottom 25 among 274 qualified defenders in the regular season; the yards per completion would've been the third-worst mark in that same group.

Teams have clearly taken notice. Williams has been targeted 22 times in the last two games alone, giving up 12 catches for 233 yards. That means Sunday should be a busy day at the office for No. 85.

Higgins-Williams looks like one of the more underrated mismatches in this game. If Cincinnati exploits it properly, Higgins could prove to be a flat-out steal at 60-to-1 odds to win Super Bowl MVP.
