The Super Bowl is America’s premier sports betting event. Some individuals bet millions (yes, millions) of dollars on the big game, which this year features the Cincinnati Bengals and Los Angeles Rams. Whereas most bettors focus on the typical odds (spread, moneyline, and totals), others will take their luck to the next level and increase their chances for a big return.
Nowadays, there are so many outcomes available on sportsbooks across the web that parlay bets have become an obsession; something almost too hard to turn down. Each team’s players are in the national spotlight and big storylines develop over the two weeks that lead up to the big game.
The parlay bets below will be hard to resist for Super Bowl 56. Each team has a variety of bets to choose from, but here are a couple of combinations that should offer a big return.
Best Cincinnati Bengals Parlay Bets
It was recently reported that the biggest bet for the Super Bowl is a $4.5 million bet in favor of the Cincinnati Bengals’ moneyline. Currently (according to PointsBet), that moneyline is at +165. For those who believe in the Bengals, these are great odds.
Yes, the Cincinnati Bengals are playing a Rams team that’s getting home-field advantage for the Super Bowl, but the Super Bowl is an expensive event that draws in people from all over the world, so this isn’t a normal home game for the Rams. Still, it’s a bit of a risky start to go +165 for the Bengals, so when you go down the line, it’s wise to pick an option that’s a little bit more of a safe bet.

You don’t have to go too far to find one: Joe Burrow’s pass attempts are right there. According to PointsBet that currently sits at 36.5 for the game. In Burrow’s last two playoff games he’s thrown over that amount, and with this game being in Los Angeles, against a Rams team that loves to air it out, you better believe the Bengals will counter through the air. I’d go for the over there as it sits at (-115).
For the final part of the Bengals parlay, I like Joe Burrow going for under 2.5 rush attempts. It might not be the most glamorous bet, but under 2.5 is currently at +100 odds. Burrow did have five rush attempts against the Chiefs, but the Chiefs’ defense has been suspect all year (as evidenced in the past two weeks).
In his previous two playoff games against better defenses in the Titans and Raiders, Burrow only rushed twice in each game. Going up against a front seven that includes the likes of Aaron Donald and Von Miller won’t be fun for Burrow and the Bengals’ offensive line. Therefore I doubt Zac Taylor will want to leave his quarterback exposed with run designs.
Bengals Parlay Bet: Cincinnati Bengals (+165), Burrow Pass Attempts – Over 36.5 (-115) & Burrow Rush Attempts – Under 2.5 (+100).
Best Los Angeles Rams Parlay Bets
The Los Angeles Rams currently sit as the favorite in Super Bowl 56 (-200). Not only do they have the better record (12-5 to 10-7), but they get the chance to play on their home field at SoFi Stadium. The home-field advantage has played a big part in the odds being in the Rams’ favor—but it hasn’t necessarily sealed the deal.
The Rams have often been criticized for having one of the league’s lackluster fan bases; with the big game not necessarily being “fan-friendly” when it comes to an economic standpoint, nothing is certain. Still, with their ferocious front seven and pass-heavy attack on offense, many believe the Rams could waltz away with this game. If that’s the angle, picking Rams to cover at -4 (-115) is a comfortable start to a parlay.
Now the next part of the parlay is a bit risky: my initial thought is it’d be foolish not to include Offensive Player of the Year Cooper Kupp in some way. The wide receiver has kept his dynamite season going into the playoffs where he has amassed 386 yards and 4 touchdowns in three games. This Bengals pass defense gave up the seventh-most pass yards per game this season, so you better believe quarterback Matt Stafford and Kupp are going to be connecting a lot.

In the regular season, both of these teams got off to slow first quarters on offense. Additionally, Kupp has yet to catch a touchdown in the first quarter this postseason—so it’s safe to scratch out that +475 for him scoring first.
Kupp has scored the Rams’ last touchdown in two of the three playoff games but hasn’t necessarily scored the last touchdown in the game, so don’t be tempted by that +550. As much as I want to take a risk, I think going with Kupp at -150 to score is the safe play.
But if we’re going for a bet with a higher return, I’d look for Odell Beckham Jr. to sneak in the end zone. This Bengals pass defense is pretty poor and a lot of focus will be on Kupp, so with Beckham at +140, he could very well find the end zone.
Finally, there was one more that stands out for the Rams’ parlay: over 3.5 touchdowns is currently at +160. I think the Rams score four touchdowns in a game that’ll likely be won through the air. With their esteemed offense at the helm, those odds look too good to pass up.
Los Angeles Rams Parlay Bet: Los Angeles Rams -4 (-115), Cooper Kupp Scores (-150) or Odell Beckham Scores (+140) & Rams Touchdowns – Over 3.5 (+160).
Best Super Bowl Game Parlay Bets
This one doesn’t lean toward any team—it’s just a parlay that I think can get big returns, centering on generic outcomes. The game total sits at 48.5, in a game between two offenses that love to throw. I like the final score to be Rams 28 – Bengals 24, so to start, I’d take the over on that which sits at (-110) on PointsBet.
Next, if the game is going to be 28-24, that should mean seven touchdowns. On PointsBet, over 6.5 touchdowns currently sits at +190. If you believe in that 48.5 over and consider that final score prediction—taking that +190 should be a no-brainer.

As mentioned, both these teams usually get off to slow starts; the Super Bowl can take that to another level: countless games have had odd starts. Once the nerves settle by the second quarter, I expect these teams to start getting a bit more comfortable on offense—before halftime adjustments.
For total second-quarter points, over 16.5 sits at (+110). I could easily see this game going 10-7 in one team’s favor for that quarter. So that one seems like a solid pick to top off this parlay.
Super Bowl Game Parlay Bet: Over 48.5 (-110), Over 6.5 Touchdowns (+190) & Over 16.5 2nd Quarter Points (+110).
These are just three parlay combinations of infinite possibilities. So make sure to check out plenty of great options on PointsBet and other sportsbook platforms.
