Lorenzo's Locks: Super Bowl 56

USA TODAY Sports reporter Lorenzo Reyes offers his three favorite picks of Super Bowl 56

LORENZO'S LOCKS: SUPER BOWL 56

The Super Bowl is here! This game will come down to strategy. Both head coaches know each other very well. Zac Taylor was once on Sean McVay's coaching staff. Lorenzo's sees this game being much closer than the public thinks. Cincinnati's offensive line will dictate the game. They have struggled overall and Joe Burrow has made the most of it having to scramble. It's not a sustainable way to win the game against Aaron Donald, Von Miller, and the Rams defense. Lorenzo like the Rams to win, but the Bengals to cover the spread.

The Bengals and Rams both have stellar offenses, one with veteran players, and one with young players still figuring out the stage of this game. Lorenzo sees this game beginning with a slow start. Both teams have shown they can play scrappy, defensive games. With both coaches knowing each other very well, Lorenzo is locking the under in total points.

As for Lorenzo's favorite prop bet of the entire game. With the Bengals offensive line struggles and Joe Burrow running outside of the pocket, this has lead to fewer carries by Bengals running-back Joe Mixon. The Rams ranked sixth in the NFL in rushing defense in the regular season and in Joe Mixon's last eight games, he's rushed for 65 or more yards only twice. Lorenzo is locking in the under on total rushing yards for Joe Mixon.
