Total Touchdowns Super Bowl Prop Bet
FanDuel Sportsbook has set the over/under for the total touchdowns scored at 5.5. That means the under would would be the winning side if there is less than 6 total touchdowns in the game. The under is available at -118 while the over has odds set at -104.
Total Touchdowns Super Bowl Prop Bet History
Super Bowl history shows that this prop bet can be hit or miss. More than 5 touchdowns have been scored in seven of the last 11 big games, but that includes the under cashing in two of the last three.
Keep in mind that those two games did not even come close to cashing the over, either. While two high-flying offenses met in Super Bowl 55 last year in the Kansas City Chiefs and Tampa Bay Buccaneers, only four total touchdowns were scored. Two years ago, the Los Angeles Rams were held without a single touchdown as the New England Patriots won by a low score of 13-3.
Total Touchdowns Super Bowl Prop Bet Prediction & Pick
It's hard to overlook the fact that both of these offenses averaged 27.1 points per game during the regular season, which tied as the seventh-highest mark in the NFL. However, the Bengals and Rams have been stepping up on the defensive side of the ball during this postseason.
Less than five touchdowns have been scored in all three of the Bengals' playoff games as well as two of the Rams' three contests. It comes down to a lack of red zone efficiency. Cincinnati has scored 5 total touchdowns during the playoffs, but kicker Evan McPherson has nailed 12 field goals already.
On the other side, the Rams are averaging two touchdowns allowed per game during the 2021 postseason. Their defense has racked up 5 sacks and shut down opposing rushing attacks at every opportunity. These teams have proven that they are capable of playing high-scoring games without getting into the end zone too often.
