Super Bowl 56 Trends Analysis

Based on trends, Cincinnati is the play to cover the spread. The Bengals have gone 7-0 ATS in their last 7 games.

In most of those contests, Cincinnati stepped onto the field an underdog. It’s particularly telling that the Bengals upset the 1-seed Tennessee Titans and the 2-seed Kansas City Chiefs on the road.

It’s also important to note that Cincinnati beat the Raiders by 7 as a -6 favorite in their wild card match. The Bengals also covered in their final 4 regular season games. So it makes sense to back Cincinnati if you are a trend bettor. The Rams’ trends make them a play against. But if we dig deeper, we can make a case to lay money on Los Angeles. LAR easily covered the -3 spread versus the Cardinals in the 34-11 wild card win.

The Rams then beat Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers 30-27 as a +2.5 dog. LAR didn’t cover in the 20-17 win against the 49ers, but the spread was 3.5. So the Rams didn’t cover by half a point. If you like LAR, the trends look ominous, but you can make a case to back the Rams ATS.

The total suggests an under game. The Los Angeles Rams lost 13-3 to the New England Patriots in the 2019 SB. But the Bengals have an excellent offense. So don’t base your total bet on trends alone. Also consider stats.

Top Stats to Know Heading into Super Bowl 56

Cincinnati Bengals’ Stats to Know

  • Cincinnati allows the same amount of rushing yards, 102.5, that they allow each game
  • Bengals rank seventh in points per at 27.1 each game
  • Opponents average 248.4 passing yards per while Cincinnati throws for 259 each contest
  • The Bengals had 22 takeaways and 21 turnovers during the season

Los Angeles Rams’ Stats to Know

  • Rams average 99 rushing yards per game while allowing 103.2 per contest
  • LAR averages 27.1 points per game
  • Opponents average 241.7 passing yards while the Rams average 273.1 passing yards
  • The Rams had 24 takeaways and committed 23 turnovers during the season

Super Bowl 56 Stats Analysis

Based on trends, Cincinnati is the play to cover the spread. The Bengals have gone 7-0 ATS in their last 7 games.

The stats prove how similar these two teams are. Both average 27.1 points per game. Both have taken the ball away 1 more time than they did turning the ball over. Both are led by former SEC college quarterbacks. The one stat that stands out is rushing yards. The Rams average less than 100 rushing yards per game, which makes sense. Cincinnati’s RB1 is Joe Mixon. The Bengals send one of the best running backs in the league to the field. The Rams take a more running back by committee approach.

If you add more weight to rushing stats than passing stats, the Bengals become the play. If you like passing stats more than rushing, you must consider the Rams because Stafford averages 273 passing yards per.

Like with trends, stats bolster the case to bet on both teams, which means you should use both stats and trends before deciding on which team to back. Also use your handicapping skill, meaning consider all angles, including how each quarterback has performed in big games and whether the coaches have made the right calls at the right time during games.

Study everything. Doing so won’t guarantee you make a winning bet. But it will help you find the Super Bowl 56 bet with the best chance of making you profit.
