The Super Bowl is almost here and it’s time to start placing those winning bets! Below, we’ve got four player props that we love heading into Sunday.
Patrick Mahomes – Over 38.5 Passing Attempts (-115)
In the biggest and most competitive games, teams need to play to their strengths. Ever since Patrick Mahomes took over for the Chiefs, the passing game has been Kansas City’s biggest strength on either side of the ball. With this bet, we’re expecting the Eagles to put up points and the Chiefs’ offence to be trying to keep up. Also, with one of the best defensive lines in the league stuffing the run game, using Patrick’s arm as much as possible may be necessary for Andy Reid and the Chiefs in this Super Bowl.
Travis Kelce – Over 6.5 Receptions (-175)
In two playoff games this year, Travis Kelce has made 21 catches. If Mahomes is going to be throwing the ball as much as we think he is, Kelce will once again be his top target. The veteran tight end may not be the fastest runner or make the quickest cuts, but the chemistry he has with his quarterback is unlike anything else in the league today. With Mahomes possibly still being limited in mobility, expect to see a lot of quick, short throws to Kelce in the middle of the field on option routes.
Devonta Smith – Over 62.5 Yards Receiving (-115)
Before Championship Weekend, Devonta had tallied at least 60 receiving yards in seven straight games. Since we doubt that Philly will be able to run out the clock for a whole half again this week, we’ll take the over on receiving yards for Smith in the Super Bowl. With A.J. Brown on the opposite side, Smith should be able to beat less talented cornerbacks more often than not with his great speed and sure hands. Another reason we like this bet is because it really only needs one big play. If Smith can catch a long pass downfield early in the game, the stress on this prop should be minimal.
Jalen Hurts – Anytime TD (+110)
Like the Chiefs with Mahomes, Philly will be trying to get Hurts to play to his strengths all afternoon in Super Bowl LVII. With fifteen rushing touchdowns on the season, Hurts has proven just how much of a threat he is in the running game all year, especially in the red zone. Behind one of the league’s best offensive lines, Philly provides him with a nearly automatic QB sneak play as well as a variety of well-designed run plays. We think he’ll advantage of at least one of these opportunities and turn into six points for the Birds.
