Top Super Bowl LVII Prop Bets
As you have probably noticed for a long time, the Super Bowl represents a time when the betting really opens up. The area of prop bets, in particular, really takes on a new light at this special time of the NFL season. Normally, you have a pretty good choice of bets, mostly pertaining to on-the-field play. During the Super Bowl, that opens up even more, with virtually every aspect of game play having a wager tied to it. Beyond that, however, is a slew of other prop bets where the actual connection to the game is pretty loose.
Granted, this is a time to open things up a little bit. At the same time, we don’t need to look at the open-season nature of Super Bowl prop bets as a license to get nuts. We still like to use what got us here—football-related betting analysis. So, while we might take some more extreme stances than normal, we don’t want to get too far off the beaten path and start betting on the color of a halftime performer’s outfit or how many times an announcer will utter the word “nachos.” That doesn’t mean don’t take a stab if you have some insight on one of these goofier kinds of bets. But we’re going to try to keep it football-related. Here are some Super Bowl LVII prop bets we feel have some nice upside. Let’s take a look! (All Odds by Bovada)
Super Bowl MVP
There is no denying the quarterback-centric nature of this award. If a QB has a decent game on the winning team, it’s going to take a lot for him not to win that award. Still, it seems the odds have almost gone too far in favor of the quarterback. With Jalen Hurts getting +125 odds and Patrick Mahomes fetching a +135 quote, taking a QB has lost a lot of value. With the two QBs hogging up all the odds, it doesn’t take you too long going down the list to find some far more-appetizing returns. By the time you get to the fifth choice on this list, Eagles receiver DeVonta Smith, the odds already swell up to +2800. It almost makes it seem worth it to take a whirl on one of these other guys, and with the odds so tasty, you can spread it around a little.
Super Bowl MVP Picks: Travis Kelce (+1200), DeVonta Smith (+2800), Miles Sanders (+2800), JuJu Smith-Schuster (+7500)
Number of Different Eagles Players to Have a Rush Attempt
This is a tricky one, being that, for the most part, you can count on Jalen Hurts and Miles Sanders getting carries, with reserve backs Kenneth Gainwell and Boston Scott also seeing use. For this to go over, you’re going to need to see an injury where someone else gets used during the game or a hand-off to one of their receivers, something we’ve only seen four times this season. Maybe there’s a chance Scott or Gainwell don’t see a touch, making the more-chalky “over” seem like a dicey stance to take with receivers not really used on end-arounds very often. I just see four as a near-lock, making a push the most likely outcome, with the chance that the big game leads to one different kind of play, making it worth a stab on the over.
Pick for the number of Eagles players to have a rush attempt: Over 4 at -210 odds.
Made Field Goals
If this game goes according to form, meaning if the Eagles’ defense provides resistance along with the Chiefs’ defense continuing to show its fangs this deep in the postseason, a two-FG performance from either Philly’s Jake Elliott or Kansas City’s Harrison Butker doesn’t seem too wild. At +225 for either man, you could go with both of them and still do okay if only one kicks two or more field goals. A close game is forecasted where points might be precious, and I think there’s value with either Butker or Elliott in this spot.
Pick: Jake Elliott and Harrison Butker two or more field goals at +225 each.
Marquez Valdez-Scantling Stats Prop
We need MVS to go for 70 yards and a TD, with the Chiefs winning the game. Sure, the first-year Chiefs receiver has mostly been a disappointment this season. For him to have a big game against this defense seems dicey, as banking on MVS to deliver in any spot is hard enough. Still, we saw him step up with a big showing in the conference title game with 116 yards and a TD, with Mahomes looking his way in a big close game eight times. And yes, the Chiefs needing to win as slight dogs adds another layer of trickiness to this, but perhaps it is worth a whirl at +1150 betting odds.
Pick: Marquez Valdez-Scantling 70 yards receiving and a TD, Chiefs win at +1150 odds.
Chiefs Scoring Prop: Patrick Mahomes and Travis Kelce
OK, bear with me a moment because this is asking a lot. I just think the potential return might at least slightly surpass the improbability of this occurring. We need Patrick Mahomes to throw for 355+ yards, TE Travis Kelce to rack up 130+ receiving yards with two touchdowns, and for the Chiefs to score over 23.5 points. To be sure, it’s not a breeze against what seems to be a poor matchup against the Eagles’ defense. But Mahomes was tops in the league in passing yardage for a reason. With Kelce’s large target share and a chance that even rises against this defense, a 45-to-1 return on this doesn’t seem so shabby.
Pick: Mahomes 355+ yards, Kelce 130+ receiving yards and 2+ touchdowns, Chiefs over 23.5 points at +4500 betting odds. Bet your Super Bowl 57 props for FREE by scoring a 50% real cash bonus up to $250 at the bookie with the most SB prop bets: Bovada Sportsbook!
