Robert Woods SB53 Prop Predictions
Robert Woods had a good season for the Rams a year ago, but he was outstanding in 2018. He hasn’t gone off in the playoffs yet but could that change when the Rams take on the Patriots in Super Bowl 53? And what are the best Woods-related prop bets for Super Bowl Sunday?

Public Betting Trends
According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetNow.eu, the Patriots are 2.5-point favorites to beat the Rams. The total, meanwhile, sits at 56.5 points. As of this writing, 79% of the public betting tickets are on the Patriots to cover the point spread.
In four years with the Bills, Woods never had a 1,000-yard season. In 2018, Woods cracked the 1,000-yard mark when he hauled in 86 passes for 1,219 yards on 130 targets. He also set a career-high for touchdowns with six, which is one more than he produced with the Rams in 2017. An underrated receiver, Woods is a perfect fit for Sean McVay’s offense.
Robert Woods Super Bowl Prop Predictions
During the regular season, Woods averaged 5.38 receptions per game, 76.19 yards per contest and 0.38 touchdowns. He caught six passes in both wins over the Cowboys and Saints, although he was held to just 33 yards by New Orleans after recording 69 yards against Dallas in the Divisional round. He has yet to score a touchdown in the playoffs.

Robert Woods Will he Score a FIRST HALF Touchdown: Yes (3/1); No (1/4)
If you throw out Week 17 when he played on just 70% of the Rams’ offensive snaps, Woods recorded at least five catches in four-straight games. He also went over 60 yards receiving over that same span. Granted, he’s coming off a quiet game against the Saints but Woods is a good bet to bounce back in the Super Bowl. With Bill Belichick likely to take away Todd Gurley and perhaps even Brandin Cooks, I like Woods to go over for receptions and yards.
Robert Woods Total Receptions: Over 5.5
Robert Woods Total Receiving Yards: Over 72.5
