We are down to the final game of the NFL season, the Super Bowl between the defending champions and the Kansas City Chiefs against the San Francisco 49ers—a rematch of Super LV. Historically, there are plenty of game trends that can be cashed in on, and below are three best bet prop bets to get down on based on Super Bowl trends and props history!

Super Bowl Trends, Props History and Best Bets
Best Bet: Last Team To Score To Win The Game -195
First, let’s start with a trend that has cashed in 13 straight Super Bowl games. The team that scores last in the game has won the Super Bowl in 13 straight! Whichever team you are rooting for, let’s hope they are the last team to score in the game!
Best Bet: Shortest Touchdown Under 1.5 -145
Another trend that has historically done well in the Super Bowl is the length of the shortest touchdown. Over the last 10 Super Bowls, the Under is 8-2. In other words, teams in the Super Bowl have been running the football into the end zone from the one-yard line.
In fact, this prop has cashed in four straight Super Bowls. There is always the chance that a defensive pass interference penalty can called to get in the endzone. As a result, the ball will be placed on the one-yard line.
I love this prop bet to cash in a fifth straight Super Bowl! I love this Super Bowl trend to continue cashing this year!
Best Bet: Totals Sacks Over 4.5 (+100)
A lot of the talk for both teams is how great their offenses have been this season. However, both defenses have played at an elite level this season. In fact, the 49ers and the Chiefs finished in the top 10 in yards per play allowed. Additionally, both teams ranked inside the top 10 in total sacks this season.
Further, the Chiefs finished the regular season as the #1 in sack percentage. I expect both defenses to be able to get the opposing quarterbacks.
Best Bet: Both Teams To Make A 34+ Yard Field Goal: Yes -135
In a game where I expect the Super Bowl to be a bit more defensive, I expect both teams to take the opportunity for field goals. Weather will not be a factor in this game since Allegiant Stadium is a dome.
Also, let’s not forget that Las Vegas is in a bit of altitude. Both of these teams’ kickers can make field goals from long range. Further, over the last six Super Bowls, both teams have made at least a field goal of 34+ yards.
