Our Los Angeles Rams-Cincinnati Bengals player props look for the best value plays based on the top MNF odds from our best sports betting apps from the second game of Monday Night Football's doubleheader.

The Los Angeles Rams hoisted the Lombardi Trophy after beating the Cincinnati Bengals in Super Bowl LVI the last time these two teams met. This 2023 rematch could look vastly different if Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow misses the game with a calf injury.

Cincinnati is already struggling and is winless on the season. Meanwhile, Los Angeles won its opening contest against the Seattle Seahawks, but the Rams couldn't do the same during Week 2 against the San Francisco 49ers.

Here are our best Rams-Bengals player props for Monday Night Football to round out our NFL best bets for MNF (NFL odds via our best NFL betting sites; pick confidence based on a 1-to-5-star scale).

Rams vs. Bengals player props: Monday Night Football

Rams team total points Over 20.5 (-108 via DraftKings) ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Los Angeles is averaging 26.5 points per game over its first two contests of the season. The Rams posted 30 points during their win against Seattle in Week 1. Then they managed to hang 23 points in a loss against San Francisco and its league-best defense.

The Rams face a Cincinnati defense that's allowed 25.5 points per game to open its season. The Bengals surrendered 24 points to the Cleveland Browns in Week 1. They then coughed up 27 points to the Baltimore Ravens.

This line fluctuates across our best sportsbooks, with FanDuel posting the highest number at -118 for the Rams to reach 21 points. Grabbing this 10 points cheaper on DraftKings is your best value.

Puka Nacua Over 65.5 receiving yards (-110 via BetMGM) ⭐⭐⭐⭐

One of the most significant stories during the Rams' preseason was the health of Cooper Kupp. However, the outstanding play of rookie wideout Puka Nacua is softening the blow of Kupp's absence. 

The Los Angeles receiver has posted over 100 receiving yards in each of his first two games. He even managed to produce 147 yards against the 49ers' fierce defense. 

Nacua has been playing through an oblique injury for the past two weeks, but that obviously isn't hampering him. He still leads the Rams in targets, receptions, and yards.

Rams first drive to include 20-plus-yard offensive play (+200 via Caesars) ⭐⭐⭐⭐

The Rams produced three plays that exceeded this total during Week 1 against the Seahawks.

They didn't achieve the same overall success the following week against the 49ers. However, Los Angeles did cash this prop on a 20-yard completion to Nacua.

Cincinnati has given up five 20-plus-yard plays in 2023. Expect the Rams to take a shot early against a shaky Bengals defense. The team boasts enough weapons between Nacua, fellow receiver Tutu Atwell, and running back Kyren Williams.
