It’s time for the last NFL football game of the season! As we are headed for Super Bowl LVII with the Philadelphia Eagles squaring off against the Kansas City Chiefs in what should be a tightly contested matchup.
The Super Bowl also means there are a lot of props to bet on ranging from the coin toss to the length of the National Anthem to the halftime performance to what color the Gatorade will be for the winning team. However, a lot of those bets are just fun bets and bets that we will not focus on.
Instead, I will give you guys my Top 5 Prop Bets for Super Bowl LVII. Last season our prop bets paid off as we had Cooper Kupp listed as one of our favorite bets for Super Bowl MVP. This season, I will list the Top 5 prop bets I like including which player I am taking for Super Bowl MVP for both teams. I will list them in order with my favorite bet being listed at the 1 spot. Let’s begin with number 5!
Travis Kelce will be the go-to receiver for the Chiefs in Super Bowl LVII and will be attacking the middle of the field which is the only weakness the Philadelphia Eagles have in their secondary. Kelce enters this game averaging 88 receiving yards per game in the playoffs this season. I look for him to be involved early and often in this matchup which is why I am taking the over 37.5 total receiving yards in the 1st half.
With Mecole Hardman and likely Kadarius Toney out for the Super Bowl, I look for McKinnon to be more involved in the passing game and I wouldn’t be surprised to see him line up as the WR3 in some formations in this game. As a result, I am taking over 3.5 total receptions for McKinnon in Super Bowl LVII.
If the Eagles are going to win the Super Bowl it is going to be because of their passing game as the Chiefs are below-average in passing yards allowed per game ranking 19th in the NFL in yards allowed with an average of 221 yards allowed per game. This is more of a value bet at a little over 25:1 and I could see Brown having a huge game against a banged-up secondary for the Chiefs.
If the Chiefs win the Super Bowl it will be by attacking the middle of the field with Travis Kelce who if lined up against a safety will have a chance to have his biggest game yet in the postseason this season. Travis Kelce enters this game having caught 21 of 25 targets for 176 yards and three touchdowns in the postseason this season.
The Kansas City Chiefs have one of the worst pass defenses in the NFL this season as they are allowing an average of 221 passing yards per game which ranks 19th in the league. In the NFC Championship game, the Eagles did not have to throw the ball much as the game was decided early in the 2nd half once Josh Johnson left the game with a concussion and Brock Purdy couldn’t throw the ball. However, in a game that should be a high-scoring game that is also projected to be highly contested, I look for the passing game to be the difference for the Eagles in this matchup and I look for Jalen Hurts to throw for over 1.5 total touchdowns in Super Bowl LVII.
