Are you a fellow better looking for extra action during this glorious Super Bowl weekend? Look no further than this article as I will list my favorite props and my picks for the 57th Super Bowl this weekend. So take a seat, log into your favorite sportsbook, and let’s win some money whether you have Kansas City Chiefs or Philadelphia Eagles odds.
#1 Eagles vs #1 Chiefs
My Pick: Chiefs Moneyline +104
Over/Under: UNDER 50.5 -112
This is going to be a great game. The Eagles are built well as a full team on both sides of the ball and they can control the trenches well. If I had to compare each team’s position groups they would go as follows: offensive line – Eagles, running backs – Eagles, wide receivers – Eagles, tight end – Chiefs, quarterback – Chiefs, defensive line – Eagles, linebackers – Eagles, defensive backs – Eagles, special teams – Eagles, coaching – Chiefs. Wow, that is a lot of Eagles, and you might be thinking why would I pick the Chiefs if I like the Eagles so much? It is because the two most important parts of a football team are the quarterback and the coach. Patrick Mahomes is unbelievable at the game of football, he allows Andy Reid to write up any plays he can imagine and Andy is not afraid to try them either. This combination is why the Chiefs have been able to host five consecutive AFC Championship games. Jalen Hurts is good and the Eagles have a great team, but Patrick Mahomes will win his second super bowl this weekend.
Travis Kelce O79.5 Rec Yards -114
Travis Kelce is Mahomes’ go-to guy in this offense and especially in the playoffs. In seven of Kelce’s last eight playoff games, he has amassed 95 yards or more. His one failure was the most recent game vs the Bengals where he had 78. I expect this trend to continue, or for him to at least reach 80 in the Super Bowl. Teams know he is getting the ball but they still can’t stop it. If you want you can add on a Travis Kelce anytime TD bet at -125 odds. He has scored in seven of those eight games as well. Kelce truly shines in the playoffs and in crunch time.
Jalen Hurts O49.5 Rush Yards -114
Jalen’s legs are what keep this team alive on any given drive. He has not hit this mark in any of his last three games but he has been dealing with injury lately. The number of yards and carries has been increasing though, and with this extra time off he will be more than ready to do whatever it takes to win his first Super Bowl. All it takes is one long run and he should hit this mark easily, but could still hit it if that does not happen.
Jerick McKinnon U22.5 Rec Yards -114
In the late regular season, Jerick McKinnon was collecting receiving yards at an incredible pace. Since the playoffs have started we haven’t seen much from him there with zero in the divisional round and 17 in the conference championship, as well as zero in week 18 of the regular season. I think this number has stayed high due to that impressive stretch we saw from him but lately, he has been underwhelming. I would take the under here.
Kenneth Gainwell O18.5 Rush Yards -114
Kenneth Gainwell was a disappointment this season from a fantasy perspective, but he is more than ready to help your wallets this weekend. In his last three games, Gainwell has rushed for 35, 112, and 58 yards, well over the 18.5 mark set for his line. I think he has proven he can be an asset to the team in these important moments and we will see him continue to get the rock this Sunday.
