Field Goal (-105)
Evan McPherson has been on fire this postseason. He’s hit all 12 of his field goal attempts and is 3-for-3 from 50+ yards out. He hit a 58-yard field goal in the regular season and was a combined 9-for-11 from 50+ yards in the regular season.
Matt Gay was 4-for-5 from 50+ in the regular season with a long of 55 yards but has missed his only 50+ yard attempt in the postseason.
It seems as if McPherson may have to carry these underdog odds.
The Cincinnati Bengals' longest touchdowns were 14 yards, 16 yards and 41 yards while allowing a long touchdown of 33 yards against the Tennessee Titans. A field goal has bene the longest score in all three of their postseason games.
The Los Angeles Rams’ longest touchdowns were 7 yards, 70 yards and and 16 yards while allowing a long touchdown of 55 yards. Those looking at Super Bowl LVI odds may be relying heavily on the Bengals if they bet on a field goal and the Rams if betting on a touchdown.
With big play makers like Odell Beckham Jr., Cooper Kupp, Ja'Marr Chase, Tee Higgins and Tyler Boyd a field goal is the underdog. However, it may be the better bet, especially at a better price.
