The Cincinnati Bengals will need to be firing on all cylinders on Sunday night if they want to lock up their first Super Bowl title in franchise history. Facing the Los Angeles Rams is going to be no easy task, but Cincinnati's depth of wide receiver talent gives them a shot to score on every snap.

All of the attention seems to be going toward rookie Ja'Marr Chase and Tee Higgins and for good reason. However, forgetting about slot wideout Tyler Boyd would be a mistake. The reliable sixth-year pro remains one of the most underrated players in terms of Super Bowl MVP odds.

Tyler Boyd Super Bowl MVP Odds

FanDuel Sportsbook lists Boyd at +10000 to win the award, which ties him for the 12th-best odds among all players and the fifth-best odds among all Bengals players. He may not be the flashiest of names, but Boyd could easily ball out in the slot against a weakened Rams' linebacker group.

Boyd is as trustworthy of a target that quarterback Joe Burrow has on offense. In fact, the 27-year-old has not dropped a target in the slot since Week 2 of the 2020 season (194 targets). Overall, Boyd racked up 828 yards and 5 touchdowns on 67 receptions during the regular season.

Keep in mind that Burrow is going to be looking to get the ball out early against a LA pass rush that generated pressure on 32% of quarterback drop backs in 2021. Quick-hitting throws is Boyd's specialty and could come in handy given the Rams do not want to let up big plays down the field.

Has a Wide Receiver Ever Won Super Bowl MVP?

A wide receiver has named Super Bowl MVP seven times, yet it has only happened once in the last 12 years. Julian Edelman of the New England Patriots earned the honors in 2019 by racking up 141 yards on 10 receptions and adding an eight-yard rush as well.

It's not unrealistic to say that Boyd could end up with a very similar stat line. After all, someone is going to have to step up on the biggest stage and etch their name in history on Sunday night.
