Top 2022 Super Bowl picksAfter simulating every snap of Super Bowl LVI 10,000 times, the model is backing Cincinnati running back Joe Mixon to score a touchdown in the game at -111 odds. Mixon only received two red zone carries on Sunday against the Chiefs in the Bengals’ AFC Championship Game victory, but only three Cincinnati drives made it inside Kansas City’s 20-yard line. He was on the field for 75 percent of Cincinnati’s offensive snaps and finished with 21 carries and three receptions, so Mixon was clearly a central part of the Bengals’ offensive game plan.The Rams were able to put the clamps on San Francisco’s ground attack, but in the divisional round against the Buccaneers, Leonard Fournette finished with two rushing touchdowns. At times, Los Angeles has struggled defending running backs in the passing game, and Mixon caught 42 of the 48 passes thrown his way in the regular season. The Bengals’ offense features too many playmakers for the Rams to focus solely on Mixon.How to make 2022 Super Bowl parlaysThe model locked in Super Bowl LVI picks and says one side of the spread cashes well over 50 percent of the time.
