The day has finally come. 21 Sundays spent on the couch watching TV all boils down to this: another Sunday spent on the couch watching TV. Except for this time, the stakes are higher–for both the teams playing, and for you at home.

While the Rams and Bengals are duking it out for the Lombardi Trophy, millions of fans like you and me will be at home, stuffing their faces with food, and sweating out their bets. The American Gaming Association estimates that more than $7.6 billion will be bet on the Super Bowl this year, so if you find yourself rooting for a late-game field goal or an apparently meaningless first dow, just remember: you’re not alone.

 And this year, all throughout the regular season and playoffs, Oddsseeker has been your one-stop-shop for all things NFL. With picks, predictions, and best bets going out every week, Oddseeker was your best friend during this NFL season–and we’re not gonna stop before crossing that finish line.

So that’s why you can sign up for BetMGM sportsbook and use the promo code ODDSSEEKER to receive up to $1,000 in free bets upon registration. You can use those free bets on ANYTHING–but why use it on normal, everyday NBA action when you can be using it on this:

My Four Best Bets Coming Into Super Bowl Sunday

1. Over 3.5 Field Goals Made (+105)

Cincinnati Bengals rookie kicker Evan McPherson has made a total of 12 field goals so far this postseason, banging four through the uprights in each of his three games. That alone would hit the over here, but add on the fact that Rams kicker Matt Gay is averaging over two field goals per game so far this postseason, and it feels like a lock. Both head coaches (Zac Taylor and Sean McVay) hate to leave points on the board, so you should expect them to go for field goals more often than not. I expect this to hit, and fairly easily.

2. Over 5.5 Sacks (+105)

I’m running this one strictly off the assumption that Aaron Donald will be a menace in the first half of this game. While Stafford has been getting sacked almost twice per game so far this postseason, the main focus of this bet is Joe Burrow and the Bengals’ offensive line. Burrow got sacked NINE times in the Divisional Round against the Titans, but was limited to 2 and 1 sacks in his games against the Raiders and Chiefs respectively. In the regular season, Burrow was sacked 51 times and was sacked five or more times in a game on five occasions. This one may be a bit more of a sweat than the field goals bet, but I still have faith it’ll hit.

3. Joe Mixon OVER 25.5 Receiving Yards (+100) and OVER 3.5 Receptions (-160)

Look at me, giving out two picks for the price of one. I had a similar bet against the Titans that hit with ease, and I’m running it back this time around for the same reasons. If the Rams pass rush is as dominant as we think it will be, Burrow will constantly be looking to check the ball down to his running backs once the pressure gets too hot. In their game against the Titans, Mixon saw six receptions for 51 yards–which hits both of these overs. In fact, in his three playoff games, Mixon has gained over 25.5 receiving yards in all three, and has only failed to catch more than 3.5 passes once.

4. Matt Stafford OVER 5.5 Rushing Yards (-120)

It’s the Super Bowl. Weird things happen ALL the time–and is Stafford gaining 6 rushing yards even that weird? He’s accomplished the feat in all three of his postseason games but has only hit that number four times in the regular season. See, this is another one of those pash rush-related bets. If the rush gets to him, Stafford may be forced to scramble and can pick up some yards in the process. I mean it's ONLY six yards, it should be easy, right?
