The Los Angeles Rams’ newly-acquired talent will headline Super Bowl 56, and no one may be more primed for a big game than receiver Odell Beckham Jr. We look at the top Super Bowl prop bets available for Beckham.
Beckham was a lost soul with the Cleveland Browns earlier this year, once again failing to build any sort of connection with QB Baker Mayfield and racking up just 232 yards on 17 catches over six games. When he was finally cut loose by the Browns and picked up by the Rams, everything changed.
Beckham caught all five of his regular-season touchdowns from Week 12 through Week 17. He averaged 11.3 yards per reception oer his eight games with L.A. He was immediately an impact player, and once the playoffs got going he was successfully deployed as one of their go-to guys.
Here are the top player prop bets for Odell Beckham in Super Bowl 56 (pick confidence based on a 1-to-5-star scale).
What are Player Prop Bets?
Typically, player props include a specific number with a total, and the bettor must predict whether the prop will land Over or Under the projected line.
Prop bets are a fun way to get action on the game without necessarily needing to pick a side. They’re often a more sustainably profitable endeavor than betting on the game outcome.

Over 61.5 yards (-110)
This one is the obvious bet to make if you want to back Beckham. This number is a few yards lower than what you’ll find at some of the other popular books and is mighty attackable.
Beckham has averaged 11.5 yards per reception or better in each of his three playoff games this year, and he went Over 61.5 yards in each of his last two games. With 19 targets in his last two outings, it’s safe to say the Rams have made him a staple of their offense opposite Cooper Kupp.

We’ll get into it a bit more later, but this Cincinnati Bengals secondary will be the weakest unit in the entire game. They’ve struggled to defend talented receivers like Beckham, and he should find plenty of success.
Under 5.5 receptions (-150)
I noted that Beckham has 19 targets in his last two contests, which have seen him go over 5.5 catches in both. I also want to point out that those are total outliers in the story of his entire season (and Rams career). He had more than 5.5 catches just three times this season. While two of those were in the last two weeks, he received double-digit targets just twice through eight games with the Rams.
While I think Beckham can have himself a game on Sunday, six catches is a lot to ask for when you consider the mouths that QB Matthew Stafford has to feed. I’d imagine running back Cam Akers gets involved in the passing game, and also think Van Jefferson will be heavily featured as a downfield threat.
Anytime TD (+140)
It’s crazy to think that Beckham has scored just six times this year, including once in the playoffs, but they all came with the Rams, and all since Week 12. The veteran wideout was able to find the end zone in L.A.’s Wild Card Weekend win over the Arizona Cardinals and has consistently been a threat around the goal line.
With the targets creeping up in the last two weeks, you can make a very solid case for Beckham getting into the end zone either on a quick slant or an explosive play.

Top Beckham Prop Bet
Longest reception Over 23.5 (-115)
Speaking of explosive plays, one of the things I have talked about all week is the fact that the Bengals had the seventh-worst explosive pass rate this year and ranked 25th in DVOA against the downfield pass. Their secondary is a huge liability, and it’s certainly vulnerable against someone of Beckham’s stature.
Beckham’s longest reception this year is 54 yards, and he’s had a game with a reception of 24 or more yards nine times, including the playoffs. Given the matchup and his season to date, this seems ironclad.
