Super Bowl LVII betting is set to go down this Sunday! A plethora of betting options have been made available for NFL bettors to sink their teeth into over at PointsBet Sportsbook, and I’m here to break down all the position groups. Hopefully these recommendations add to the bottom line! We’ll kick things off with the quarterbacks and boy do we have a fantastic matchup in store for us with Patrick Mahomes set to square off against Jalen Hurts. One’s been here before while the other hasn’t. Each enters this tilt with injury concerns. However, one looks to have all his weapons fully healthy and ready to go while the other has Travis Kelce. I’ll let you figure out which is which ;) Without further ado, let’s dig into each QB1’s player props and see if we can’t make LVII that much more enjoyable!
Bet Super Bowl LVII QB Props at PointsBet Sportsbook
Patrick Mahomes Over 295.5 Passing Yards -115
Shop around for a better number with PointsBet currently the highest of the lot. I think Kansas City has its hands full in this matchup with an Eagles team that can expose its defense in a number of ways. As such, I expect the Chiefs to be on the comeback trail a bulk of this game which means Patrick Mahomes will be forced to air it out much more than Andy Reid would like. Even with Mecole Hardman out and JuJu Smith-Schuster and Kadarius Toney listed as questionable, No. 15 will put on a show provided his balky ankle allows him to do so against one of if not the most ferocious defensive fronts in the NFL. If he plays the full 60, Mahomes will surpass the 300-yard plateau with KC in catchup mode a majority of the match.
Patrick Mahomes Over 38.5 Passing Attempts -115
If my line of reasoning takes shape, Kansas City will be forced to abandon the run relatively early. As such, Mahomes will be forced to sling the ball all over the yard in hopes of coming up with quick scores to get back in the game. Mahomes has surpassed this impost in four of his last seven starts. The three starts he didn’t, Kansas City wasn’t threatened by the Seahawks, Raiders, or Jaguars. In the games they were, he slung the pigskin an average of 42 times per game. I believe they’ll be threatened on Super Bowl Sunday!
Patrick Mahomes Under 20.5 Rushing Yards -125
The Chiefs QB1 always seems to be good for a long scramble that puts him in a position to surpass his rushing yards prop. That hasn’t been the case recently and especially the last two starts working on a gimpy ankle. His high water mark over the last five starts has been 29 yards which saw him easily surpass his 15.5-yard impost. Though rushing QBs have been able to get to Haason Reddick and Co. this season, it’s tough to envision No. 15 evading the pressure for a long gainer working on a gimpy ankle. Shop around. I’m still comfy hitting under 19.5 with lesser juice at other shops.
While Jalen Hurts is already destined to get inked to an enormous contract extension this offseason, I still expect No. 1 to ball-out in his first Super Bowl appearance. With the Chiefs best cornerback – L’Jarius Sneed – possibly still feeling the effects from the concussion suffered in the AFC title game, I question as to whether KC has anyone else that will be able to limit the Eagles big three of A.J. Brown, DeVonta Smith, and Dallas Goedert. Throw in the pass-catching abilities of a recently hot Kenneth Gainwell into the mix, and Philly’s passing game is lined up to thrive against KC’s below average pass defense (No. 18). His rushing yards prop has been bet up to 50.5 since hitting the board at 45.5. Anything he gets on the ground will be gravy!
Jalen Hurts Under 10.5 Rushing Attempts -115 + Anytime Touchdown +105
Still dealing with a banged up throwing shoulder, I doubt Nick Sirianni elects to ride his prized quarterback like he did before the injury occurred in Week 15 at Chicago. Honestly, I don’t think game script calls for No. 1 to utilize his legs much in the second half; if ever! It’s a tough sell considering the Chiefs were one of the better defenses to target when banking on quarterbacks accumulating rushing yards (No. 28). I’ll fall back on game script however and expect Miles Sanders and Co. to get a bulk of the carries – after Hurts rewards his anytime touchdown supporters with a plunge into the end zone on one of those patented QB sneaks in the first half.
