When it comes to Super Bowl LIV the action will go far and beyond side and total wagering. As a matter of fact, props betting is nearly as popular. Compelling figures such as quarterbacks Jimmy Garoppolo and Patrick Mahomes will draw plenty of NFL betting action. While Raheem Mostert, George Kittle, Tyreek Hill, and Travis Kelce are, draws as well. Yards passing, rushing, totals, and touchdowns will all be on the board. Let’s examine some of the top props for Super Sunday.
Super Bowl LIV: Kansas City Chiefs vs. San Francisco 49ers
|Date and Time:||Sunday, February 2, 2020, 6:30 p.m.|
|Location:||Hard Rock Stadium, Miami, Florida|
|Chiefs vs. 49ers TV Coverage:||FOX|
San Francisco 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo
Jimmy Garoppolo may be a tad under-appreciated as an offshore betting asset and quarterback. However, San Francisco is a run-oriented team. NFL metrics have the 49ers ranked second for rushing yardage. And that factors into Garoppolo’s prop numbers. Consider total completions (21), passing yards (249.5), and touchdown passes (1.5). Ironically if the 49ers win Garoppolo may stay under those numbers.
Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes
Counter to that is Patrick Mahomes. Mahomes is posted at total completions (25), pass attempts (37.5), passing yards (305.5), and touchdown passes (2.5). Now the 2018 NFL Most Valuable Player would seem to stand a good chance at the over for all of those categories. Offsetting that is the impressive San Francisco defense. When it comes to the respective quarterbacks the winning team factors in. Garoppolo should stay under for the 49ers to win while Mahomes may have to go over for KC to prevail.
San Francisco 49ers Running Back Raheem Mostert
Namely, Raheem Mostert broke out in the NFC championship game as a hero. Mostert absolutely steamrolled Green Bay for 220 yards on 29 carries for 7.6 yards per attempt and four touchdowns. Mostert opened at rushing attempts (15.5) rushing yards (70.5) and longest rush (17.5). Most of all the question is if the Packers game was an anomaly or a portent of things to come? Mostert was not a dominant figure for most of the season for San Francisco.
San Francisco 49ers Tight End George Kittle
Super Bowl LIV features two of the best tight ends in football with Kittle and Travis Kelce. Kittle opened at total receptions (6.5), receiving yards (76.5), and (+140) to score a touchdown. In post-season, Kittle has just four catches for 35 yards and 0 TDs. Specifically, that is far below his normal production.
Kansas City Chiefs Tight End Travis Kelce
In contrast, Travis Kelce has been a force of nature in the postseason. Kelce opened at total receptions (6.5), receiving yards (81.5), and (-125) to score a touchdown in the game. So far in the playoffs, Kelce has 13 catches for 164 yards and three touchdowns. Fashion how Kelce went into Superman mode in the stirring playoff comeback win over Houston.
Kansas City Chiefs Kicker Harrison Butker
On the whole Harrison Butker is another potential game-changer. Butker opened at (8.5) over-under for points scored and (1.5) for total field goals. To be exact Butker kicked 34 field goals on the season. Most important of all he proved to be in the conversation as the best kicker in football. Butker may end up as the ultimate NFL betting asset if the game is close.
Super Bowl LIV Props Picks:
Travis Kelce over 6.5 on receptions, Harrison Butker over 1.5 field goals, Patrick Mahomes over 2.5 touchdown passes.
