The prop markets for Super Bowl LVI are starting to get hammered into shape as almost every skilled position player has their own set of numbers. Below, we offer up our top Super Bowl prop bets for Los Angeles Rams receiver Cooper Kupp.
For the first time since Steve Smith in 2005 and just the fourth time in the history of the league, Kupp took home the NFL’s receiving triple crown in 2021. He led all pass-catchers in the regular season in receptions, receiving yards, and touchdowns.
Nearly doubling the production of his next closest season (2019), Kupp benefited greatly from the offseason addition of QB Matthew Stafford.
Despite the massive target on his back, Kupp has led all receivers thus far in the postseason by racking up 128.7 yards per game, with four touchdowns.
Here are the top player prop bets for Cooper Kupp 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.

Kupp Super Bowl Props
Over 104.5 receiving yards (-110)
In shopping around sportsbooks I’ve seen variance in this market, with this number as high as 107.5 at BetMGM; so this is where I’m pouncing. Not only did Kupp average 128.7 yards per game through the postseason thus far, but he averaged 114.5 yards per game in the regular season.
Looking at the Bengals’ performance against the pass this season, where they ranked 26th in yards allowed over 17 games (4,222), look for another potential field day from the Stafford-Kupp connection. Facing a similarly quick WR1 a few weeks ago in Tennessee Titans receiver A.J. Brown, the Bengals were gashed for 142 yards and a TD in a game where the Titans largely focused on the run.

Over 8.5 receptions (+110)
Kupp had nine or more receptions in two of his three playoff games, and I’m calling for nine-plus again on Sunday. On the other side, the Bengals play a lot of Cover-3 and Cover-2 zone defense, which might limit the big plays, but should translate to a lot of receptions for Rams receivers underneath.
Look for Kupp to take advantage.
Alternate receiving yards Over 150 (+350)
We’ve already touched on some of Kupp’s eye-popping numbers, and where he ranks among the league’s best. Kupp also ranked in the top 10 in yards after the catch, yards after contact, and yards per target.
Add to the stacked receiving corps of Kupp, Odell Beckham Jr., and Van Jefferson the two-headed rushing attack of Sony Michel and Cam Akers, and Kupp should still get plenty of looks in this game, despite his obvious threat.
It would surprise no one if he ends up turning that triple crown into a quadruple with a Super Bowl MVP to boot.
Anytime touchdown (+100)
Listed as high as -165 at other sportsbooks, DraftKings is offering a boosted +100 promo that is just too good to pass up.
With a combined 20 touchdowns across the regular season and playoffs, it’s difficult to map out a game in my head where Kupp doesn’t find pay dirt at least once. Looking back at the Bengals’ three postseason games thus far, two of three WR1s scored a touchdown, and I don’t expect Kupp’s game to be any different.

Top Kupp Prop Bet
More yards than Atlanta Hawks total points (-115)
This prop pits Kupp’s final receiving yards number on Sunday vs. how many points the Hawks will put up against the Boston Celtics on Sunday afternoon. Since we’ve already discussed Kupp’s prowess, let’s look at the Hawks’ chances.
As of Tuesday, the Hawks are averaging 111.5 points per game following a recent surge that has seen them win seven of their last 10 games. They’ll draw a Celtics team that’s third in the league by defensive rating.
