Super Bowl 57 Kansas City Chiefs Prop Bets
The guys (@GamblingPodcast) give out their favorite Super Bowl 57 Kansas City Chiefs prop bets as part of their latest Super Bowl predictions podcast. They’re joined by Danny Solomon from the ‘Sorry We Love Football‘ podcast.
The infamous Octopus bet is mispriced and is currently 14-1!
There is a solid chance the Chiefs will look to establish the run early to help their passing game. They have a number of capable runners in Pacheco and McKinnon as well as Mahomes. To add to this likely running approach, there is a good chance Andy Reid will spread this love amongst all his talent. Skyy Moore has gotten plenty of recent love on reverses and Mecole Hardman and Kadarius Toney probably will not be getting these opportunities.
Due to all this running though, Patrick Mahomes probably won’t be throwing as much especially if the running works. In an effort to also protect him, he may struggle to get to his yards mark. Danny is the somewhat contrarian though as he believes the Chief’s first play will be a pass. Sean agrees, but he believes this pass will be an incompletion, which is priced very nicely at +220 for such a likely event as Mahomes is 1-2 on first passes in his two prior Super Bowls.
Danny once again proves contrarian as he believes there isn’t enough viable options for the Chiefs to space out their rushing attempts. To get Mahomes in a rhythm, he will probably dump off a low yardage pass early. For those that want to bet on Travis Kelce first touchdown, a good alternative is to take the tight end position as the first to score. In general, both tight ends have a good chance to find paydirt when Andy Reid gets creative.
If he really is trying to get creative as well as his counterpart Sirianni, they could have more than just their quarterbacks attempt a pass. All in all, its likely both teams will not drive down the field and score the first drive and punting is likely as everyone gets the jitters out. While it is likely the Chiefs score with a tight end first, it is also likely for the Eagles as well. The trend seems to be these playoffs that the tight ends will score first.
In the Super Bowl, Andy Reid will have to be aggressive and may do so by going for it on a fourth down. For all the running we discussed about the Chiefs, this did not mean they would do it to get into the endzone. The Chiefs have yet to record a rushing touchdown in the playoffs, and you are getting plus money for this. Yet, they are still going to score, and it will be at the hands of Pat Mahomes. If they do fall behind though, Mahomes could have to air it out more than expected. With his ankle injury though, you just can’t expect him to rush too much, resulting in not too many yards.
The Eagles will also be running the ball well as they have all year and might spread the love too. For how spread the love will be though, we might not see repeat scorers. On the other side, they will also get pressure on Patrick Mahomes, who likes to avoid sacks by hucking the ball up. One of these are likely to end up in the hands of the Eagles, and possibly more than one. Defensively though, the Chiefs can bring the heat, especially Frank Clark as he has all year.
His pass rushing mate Chris Jones also has had a good year and has the chance to dominate upfront enough to take MVP honors. AJ Brown has caused trouble all year and should cause trouble in this Super Bowl. If Jalen Hurts can hit him consistently and the Eagles run the ball well as well as the Chiefs, these quarterbacks should not experience many incompletions.
Butker is always good to take a good volume of field goals throughout the game and should be able to get 2. In the seemingly inevitable first punt for Chiefs, it should go well over 45.5 yards. As good as Butker has been though, he has had an issue with missing extra points. To align with Mahomes having a short pass to start off to gain rhythm, it is likely that a short pass goes to Jerick McKinnon.
Kramer has a strong belief that the Chiefs will score points solidly, especially in the second half. However, Sean thinks Travis Kelce won’t be getting many catches to help them get to the endzone as James Bradberry may be locking him up. If you expect the Chiefs to win, its hard to not expect Patrick Mahomes will also be the MVP of the game, the media loves him.
