They are challenging to win but yield large dividends if predicted correctly.

If you’re a new sports bettor, the FanDuel Sportsbook offers an incredible betting opportunity for new users.

Top-3 Player Props:
Anytime TD: Leonard Fournette (+125) – Fournette has become the featured running back for the Buccaneers in the postseason, scoring in 2 of 3 games. The Buccaneers are one of the best teams inside 5 yards, an area where the Chiefs have struggled. I expect a conservative Super Bowl game plan to be in Fournette’s favor. TB rush for TD – YES at -155 also makes sense.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers over 2.5 sacks (+135) – The Bucs, who had the sixth-highest sacks per game in the NFL this season, go up against a Chiefs offensive line missing its top two linemen. Three of Kansas City’s five starting offensive linemen to start the season won’t play in the Super Bowl. This spells disaster for last year’s Super Bowl MVP, Patrick Mahomes.
Most Passing Yards: Patrick Mahomes over Tom Brady (-155) – This is reserved for a same game parlay only as the price is a little too high for my taste. The Chiefs’ path to victory will be on the arm of Mahomes. The Buccaneers defense is especially stingy against the run, the best in the NFL. Mahomes will be throwing.
Bonus Game Prop:
Tails (-103) – As I laid out in my guide to betting props earlier this week, this is a total sucker bet. That doesn’t mean I’m not going to follow the trend. Tails have won 5 of the last 7 Super Bowl coin tosses, representing a 71% success rate in that span. No matter what you read, there’s absolutely no strategy for this. But it’s the Super Bowl! Have some fun.
