OUR TOP PROP BETS FOR SUPERBOWL LIV
BET No. 1 – Patrick Mahomes Super Bowl MVP +100
Reasoning: The Super Bowl MVP market is pretty much a case of picking the quarterback of the team who you think will win the Lombardi trophy. Since 2000, a quarterback has won Super Bowl MVP 12 times, a wide receiver has won it 4 times and a defensive player 4 times. We all know what a special talent Patrick Mahomes is and if the Chiefs are going to be successful against this top ranked 49ers defense Mahomes will need to make some big time plays, he looks value at plus money.
BET No. 2 – Kendrick Bourne Anytime Touchdown Scorer +300
Reasoning: The 49er’s will have some success on the ground but they may struggle to punch it in around the goal line without Tevin Coleman, who had 7 TD’s during the regular season. George Kittle would be the obvious selection but the Chiefs and the public know that so we would prefer look elsewhere for value. Deebo Samuel at +140 had six touchdowns on the season but Kendrick Bourne was just one back with five and he’s double the odds at +300. Three of his five touchdowns have come over the last six games and that includes one against the Packers where they threw it just eight times. We really fancy Bourne at those odds to find the end zone in Miami.
BET No. 3 – Jimmy Garroppolo Under 239.5 Passing Yards -115
Reasoning: In the past two playoff games for the 49er’s, Garroppolo has totaled a tiny 17 completed passes for a combined total of 208 passing yards. Against the Packers he only attempted eight passes. Kyle Shanahan does not want the ball to be in Garroppolo’s hands if he can help it, he is happy handing the ball off over and over again. It’s been effective for the 49er’s this season and we’ve seen them drive the length of the field only calling running plays. Expect the 49er’s to run the ball again on Sunday and control the clock, keeping Mahomes off the field. The Chiefs secondary has been playing well of late, even if they do fall behind and Jimmy G is forced to air it out we are confident it stays under the 239.5 Number.
BET No. 4 – Team To Punt First – KC Chiefs -110
Reasoning: Even though the Chiefs have worked their way into the Super Bowl, they have started both playoff games on the wrong foot. Kansas City were down double digits to both the Houston Texans and Tennessee Titans early and expect the same type of start for the Chiefs. The 49er’s have arguably the best defense in the NFL and will want to shut-down Mahomes early doors. On the other side of the coin, the 49er’s have scored a touchdown on the opening drive in both of their playoff games thus far this season. Give us the team that starts the game on fire at bigger odds, the 49ers will force the Chiefs to punt first.
