Cooper Kupp: Total Receptions

The Prop: 8.5 receptions
The Odds: Over +110/Under -140

There are no obvious reasons for this prop shading heavily toward the Under. Last we checked, Kupp was this season’s Triple Crown winner in catches (145), receiving yards (1,947), and receiving touchdowns (16).

For good measure, Kupp led all NFL playmakers in targets (191). Over a 20-game span, that breaks down to 17 games of nine or more targets. Kupp had nine-plus catches in 11 of 20 games. He also led all NFL pass-catchers in first-down receptions (89).

And in 14 indoor games, Kupp averaged 8.6 catches, and surpassed the Super Sunday total of 8.5 eight times.

So why is Under priced at -140? Because it’s almost assuredly seeing sharp action. But the Over at short plus money certainly feels possible.

Odell Beckham Jr.: Receiving Yards

The Prop: 63.5 receiving yards
The Odds: Over -115/Under -115

Say hello to a classic what-have-you-done-lately wager. Beckham has stealthily averaged 7.5 catches, 9.5 targets, and 91 yards in the Rams’ last two playoff outings — numbers befitting a No. 2 wideout for a championship-contending team.

However, in the previous eight games, Beckham averaged 42.6 receiving yards per outing, while topping Super Sunday’s 63.5 total only twice (81 at Green Bay, 77 at Arizona).

So, what’s the reality? Here are three factors to ponder, outside of Beckham needing adjustment time, after moving from the Browns to Rams:

— This season, the Bengals’ defense ranked 15th in receiving yards allowed to wideouts, at 155.6 yards per game.

— Rams quarterback Matthew Stafford has completed 71.2 percent of his passes in the last five games (119 of 167).

— Beckham had at least one catch of 20 or more yards (29, 20, 31) in each of his three postseason outings.

Van Jefferson: Longest Reception

The Prop: 17.5 yards
The Odds: Over -115/Under -115

This has the makings of an easy triumph for the Over crowd. Jefferson had at least one catch of 18-plus yards in 16 of his 20 games this season. And yet, that 80-percent proficiency rate hasn’t prompted much movement with various sportsbooks all week.

During the regular season, the explosive Jefferson notched 12 receptions of 20-plus yards, and four catches of 40-plus yards. And in his last 10 indoor games, Jefferson had a longest-catch average of 27.6 yards, and had eight receptions of 18-plus yards.

Cooper Kupp: Receiving Yards

The Prop: 105.5 receiving yards
The Odds: Over -115/Under -115

The prolific Kupp surpassed 105.5 receiving yards in 13 of 20 games this season (65%). In the Rams’ 14 indoor games, including road trips to Indianapolis, Minnesota, Arizona, and Houston, Kupp averaged 108.2 yards per outing.

Kupp also led the NFL with 30 receptions of 20-plus yards during the regular season, and he tied for the league lead with nine super-sized catches of 40-plus yards. In the postseason, Kupp recorded at least one reception of 25 or more yards against the Cardinals, Bucs, and 49ers.

And for the regular season, the Bengals’ defense ranked 15th in receiving yards yielded, and 20th in receptions surrendered to opposing wideouts.

Factoring in the above information, perhaps Kupp should be a stronger bet for the Over side.

Odell Beckham Jr.: First Reception

The Prop: 9.5 yards
The Odds: Over -120/Under +100

In 11 games with Los Angeles, Beckham averaged 9.1 yards on his first reception. And he only eclipsed 10 or more yards on the first catch three times (27 vs. Jacksonville, 13 vs. San Francisco, 17 vs. Arizona).

On the bright side, though, all three of those catches took place at SoFi Stadium, the home for Super Sunday. Plus, in the Bengals’ three playoff games, the opponent’s first catch went for 17, 11, and 14 yards.
