We give detailed predictions for the diffractive associated production of SUSY Higgs bosons and top squarks at the LHC via exclusive double pomeron exchange mechanism. We study how the SUSY Higgs production cross section and the signal-over-background ratio are enhanced as a function of tan β in different regimes. The prospects are particularly promising in the antidecoupling regime, which we study in detail. We also give prospects for a precise measurement of the top squark mass using the threshold scan of central diffractive associated top squark events at the LHC.
