On the whole, Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow showed why he was the first player taken in the 2020 NFL Draft.  Following a lost rookie campaign to injury, Burrow demonstrated proved he will be a Sportsbook asset for years to come.

Running back Joe Mixon rushed for over 1200 yards this season.  Thus, he kept defenses honest.  And then Ja’Marr Chase remains Burrow’s favorite target dating back to their LSU days of glory.  Chase cleared 1400 yards receiving with 13 touchdowns.

Defensive end Trey Hendrickson totaled a career-high 14 sacks in 2021.  Additionally, he had 12 tackles for loss.  Kicker Evan McPherson has been one of the most impressive players in the playoffs, with 8-8 on field goals.

Players to Watch

San Francisco quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo takes as much bashing as any player on the Super Bowl betting.  But he is one win away from his second Super Bowl in three years.

Specifically, Deebo Samuel is Jimmy G’s favorite target.  Samuel had a career-best 77 catches with 1405 yards this season.

Nick Bosa has emerged as a dominant NFL gambling defensive end.  To illustrate, Bosa has 15.5 sacks and 21 tackles for loss in 2021.

And then kicker Robbie Gould was 20-23 on field goals and ice-cold in heated clutch situations.

The Rams offered Matthew Stafford a lifeline for 2021 after years of going to waste in Detroit.  Stafford responded with 4886 yards passing and a 41/17 TD/INT ratio.  Stafford was heroic in leading the Rams back to victory last week at Tampa Bay.

Meanwhile, Cooper Kupp has blasted on the scene as an All-Pro receiver for Los Angeles.  Kupp was a hero at Tampa Bay and caught 145 passes for 1947 yards with 16 TDs this year.

Defensive tackle Aaron Darnold is arguably the best defender in the game.  He totaled 12.5 sacks and 19 tackles for loss in 2021.

To be exact, kicker Matt Gay was a sensational 32-34 on field goals.  He kicked the game-winner at Tampa Bay.
