At 6:30 p.m. on Sunday, February 13, the Los Angeles Rams and Cincinnati Bengals will kickoff Super Bowl LVI. Running back Sony Michel has had a few chances to standout with the Rams, mostly filling in for injuries to the players ahead of him on the depth chart. But with a three-headed backfield combo led by Darrell Henderson and Cam Akers, Michel’s odds of a big game are slim. Still, that doesn’t mean he can’t have an impact on the outcome. Below, we take a look at some of the best prop bets available for Michel’s performance in the big game.

Sony Michel: Best prop bets for Rams RB in Super Bowl 56
Under 4.5 rushing attempts (+105)
The Rams have tended to lean on a single running back most of the season, whether that’s Henderson, Akers or Michel when one of those other two have been out of action. With Henderson returning to action and Akers healthy, it’s really tough to see many touches for Michel.
Under 1.5 receptions (-160)
In the NFC Championship game, when quarterback Matthew Stafford threw the ball 45 times, the Rams backfield was targeted just three times, totaling two catches. Michel had one of those. With the expanded backfield and the Rams not throwing all that much to their running backs, don’t look for Michel to finish this one with two receptions or more.
