Odell Beckham Jr. made a huge impact early in Super Bowl LVI, scoring the first touchdown of the game and headed toward big numbers. That all changed when Beckham Jr. went down in the second quarter with an apparent non-contact knee injury.

Beckham Jr. reached back for a pass when his knee buckled and his cleat stuck in the ground. He instantly grabbed his knee and was helped off of the field.

The team announced he is officially questionable to return in the first half before ruling him out in the third quarter. According to multiple reports on Monday, Beckham Jr. is believed to have torn his ACL.

Beckham cashed at +900 to score the first touchdown of the game when he caught a 17-yard pass from Matthew Stafford with 6:22 left in the first quarter. That put the Rams up 7-0. He was +120 to score at any time. It was his seventh touchdown of the year after not scoring in any of his first seven games.

He caught two of three targets for 52 yards before the injury. His receiving yard prop is 63.5 yards for the game.

The Bengals responded with an Evan McPherson field goal, but a touchdown pass to Cooper Kupp pushed the Los Angeles lead to 13-3. Joe Mixon hit Tee Higgins for a touchdown in the second quarter to close the gap to 13-10.

The Rams were a 4.5-point betting favorite in the Super Bowl with a total of 48.5.
