Will Joe Burrow or Matt Stafford throw an intercept in the Super Bowl?
With less than two weeks until the Super Bowl, we have some time to breathe and sift through the mountains of props and data leading up to the big game.
One interesting point for players that I wanted to dig deeper into was whether each QB threw an intercept during Super Bowl LVI.
WynnBET has placed the odds for Joe Burrow to throw one or more interceptions at -149, while the odds for Matthew Stafford are -164 to intercept.
Burrow’s interception rate more than doubled after 5 seasons of his interceptor rookie season. With just 10 games under him, that equates to 0.5 interceptions per game between 2020-21. This season, however, Burrow has made 14 regular-season games and finished the season 24th in the standings. While this is not great news for Bengals bettors, there is something worth noting here.
First, Burrow started the season as an interceptor with four picks in the first three games. Even so, Burrow shaped as the season progressed and failed to throw an intercept in the final four competitive weeks of the season. Burrow was unable to sustain that streak going too far into the knockout stages and has since been eliminated once in two consecutive games.
The Rams ranked sixth in the NFL with a throwback interception rate of 3.10%. LA also ranks eighth for defensive errors per game. I think if I Yes bet on one of these people to be picked into the Super Bowl, it would be Burrow. That’s not to say I’m expecting a bad game from Burrow. WynnBET Sportsbook his passing yards are now 277.5 and I like -115 for the sophomore superstar.
While Stafford is the top scorer this year with 41 in the regular season, he is also quite active in interception. It was a pity that after finishing second in the touchdown pass, he finished in 30th place in interceptions with 17.
For those of you watching at home, that’s exactly one game-per-game interception this season. In the knockout stages, however, Stafford cut his scoring tally and conceded just one of his last three. It must have been a relief for Rams fans after Stafford ended the year with three consecutive interception games where he threw a total of seven picks.
It’s worth noting that Stafford threw about half as many interceptions at home as he did on the road. This is important because the home team will attend the Super Bowl for the second time in history. Stafford had six interceptions at SoFi Stadium compared to 11 on the road.
In terms of Bengals, Cincy is the 9th team in the NFL for 2.56% interception and 14th in points per game of 1.4. Above average, yes, but not a staggering number for a Super Bowl team. The value will be on the BELIEVE side here and, if I bet on this prop, it will be on that side of things.
