2022 Super Bowl prop bets: First-half winner

The Los Angeles Rams and Cincinnati Bengals face off Sunday in Super Bowl LVI to determine who are this season’s NFL champions. While perhaps the most intriguing part of the game and the most intriguing bet that can be made is on the result, one can also wager on who will be leading after the first half. Will the Rams or Bengals end the first half in the lead, or might the game be tied?

Below, we look at the first-half winner Super Bowl prop bets with  NFL picks and predictions.

Kickoff is scheduled for 6:30 p.m. ET from SoFi Stadium in Southern California. The game will be televised on NBC.

First-half winner: Bengals (+150), Rams (-170), Tie (+1000)

Looking at the last 10 Super Bowls, two were tied at halftime: Chiefs-49ers two years ago and Patriots-Seahawks in the 2015 Super Bowl.

Two of the past 10 Super Bowl champs trailed at halftime. The Patriots rallied from 21-3 down to stun the Falcons 34-28 in the 2017 Super Bowl, and the Giants claimed a 21-17 victory over the Pats in the 2012 Super Bowl after trailing 10-9 at the break.

The other six times in the past 10 years, the eventual winner led at halftime.

The Rams have led at halftime in two of their three postseason games. Of their 17 regular-season games, they trailed six times at halftime and were tied twice.

The Bengals led at halftime in two of their three postseason games. They trailed at halftime in eight of their 17 regular-season games.

There isn’t much to be said about their regular-season performances, as each team led at halftime in nine games in the regular season and two of three postseason games.

But looking at recent history, the most likely first-half winner is the one who will win the game and lift the Lombard Trophy.

I believe the Rams will ultimately be the champions, so take the chalky pick of the RAMS (-150) as the FIRST-HALF WINNER.

However, consider sprinkling something on TIE (+1000): FIRST-HALF WINNER. The payout is too great to pass up. It could be worth a hedge, at the very least.
