Kevin Durant and Eddie Gonzalez Predict Super Bowl LVI

This week on “The ETCs,” KD and Eddie Gonzalez went deep on Sunday’s big game between the Bengals and Rams — and were divided on who’s getting the W.

There was a lot to hit on this week’s latest episodes of Boardroom’s “The ETCs” podcast with Kevin Durant and Eddie Gonzalez, from Iowa basketball phenom Caitlin Clark to the fast-approaching NBA All-Star Weekend to the art and science of the Instagram unfollow.

But no topic could overshadow Super Bowl LVI in Inglewood, California between the Los Angeles Rams and the Cincinnati Bengals, the second year in a row (and only the second time ever) in which a conference

As the guys got into discussing the game on the pod, Eddie quickly announced himself as a member of Team Joe Burrow. But his co-host? Not so much.

“I’m gonna go with the Rams,” KD said.

Eddie is a big believer in not just the Bengals’ youth movement on offense, however — he’s laying a bold prediction of a walk-off winner at the feet of Cincinnati’s rookie kicker out of Florida, Evan McPherson. He’s been one of the surprising breakout names of the postseason to the point of earning the nickname “Money Mac” on the strength of a succession of clutch performances against favored opponents.

The final score prediction from Eddie? 31-28 in favor of the Bengals. For those inclined to make a wager or two, that would both beat the point spread (Rams by 4.5) at FanDuel Sportsbook by more than a touchdown, but smash the over/under (48.5) by two scores.

And this whole field goal thing resonates with a man like Kevin Durant who clearly knows a thing or two about three-pointers. His score prediction is likewise a field goal-sized victory, but for the Rams by a final score of 20-17.If you’re riding with KD, you’re picking the Bengals to beat the spread, but banging the under.

So, just for fun, whose picks would hypothetically promise the biggest payoff?

  • Placing a $100 parlay bet on KD’s predictions — Rams to win (-205), Bengals +4.5 (-112), and under 48.5 total points (-108) — would produce a total payout of $442.38 at FanDuel.
  • Parlaying Eddie’s predictions — Bengals to win (+172), Bengals +4.5 (-112), and over 48.5 (-112) — would pay out $874.55 on a $100 bet.
