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.

  1. Mahomes has taken 26 sacks, 17 sacks and 22 sacks in the last 3 years (regular season totals). They played an Alex Smith on steroids offense against the Bills (only 2 ‘deep’ passes). They haven’t had Mitchell Schwartz since week 2 or 3.

    Ok so they’ve lost Fisher (big loss). To put in context (and this is why Mahomes is even better than you think), Deshaun Watson has taken (these are off top of my heads) like 63, 46 and 49 sacks the previous 3 years (and they traded 2 1sts for Laremy Tunsil).

    Mahomes has spidey sense bros … I am not saying he won’t take 3+ sacks, he might. Tampa has a great front 4. I’m just saying … I’m not betting against Mahomes especially when all of the chatter is about how the front 4 is going to “pwn” him.

    …Good luck!

  2. He made this throw (and I referenced this once on Outkick already, but I rewatched the game so I know the play now) last week against Buffalo. He drops back and completely jukes a Bill that comes through unblocked through Mahomes LG, he then hesitates and steps up 2 steps and fires a BB to Tyreek wide open on the right side about 14 yards downfield, and as he throws, he feels the hit coming from his back and scrunches his shoulders at the exact right time to “soften the blow” from the Bill he just completely juked out of his pants. The dude just feels everything and I don’t even know how it is possible. He did a similar play earlier in the year against the Ravens that won’t make any highlight show but it was just breathtaking to see him feel pressure he has no business feeling or knowing exists.
