Prop bets are perhaps the most fun way of going about Super Bowl betting. And while there's a litany of props available across popular Super Bowl sportsbooks, we've narrowed it down to our absolutely favorite prop betting selections for the upcoming Super Bowl 57 pitting Kansas City vs. Philadelphia. Keep reading to get our expert picks!
Best Super Bowl 57 Prop Bets To Make
Out of literally hundreds of wagers available, we've honed in on four Super Bowl 57 prop bets. We think these next four are most worth your betting money:
Anytime Score Touchdown
Who scores a touchdown is one of the most popular prop bets available at the most-used betting sites for NFL. You can wager this specifically on who scores the game's first and last touchdowns — which are the more lucrative payouts — but we're instead opting for the anytime prop. When exactly this touchdown comes has no bearing on the outcome so long as it happens at some point. Here are the betting lines for several different players:
Look, the obvious betting choices are on Kelce and Brown, two premier players at their respective positions. While putting money on either isn't certainly a bad idea, we are not doing so, mostly because we saw value elsewhere (e.g. better possible payouts if correct). We're going to give you choices on each time.
The first is Smith, the perceived No. 2 receiver for Jalen Hurts. But is he actually? If you compare Smith and Brown's stats over the past nine games, they are strikingly similar. In that span, Brown has averaged 8.8 targets and 84.6 receiving yards, while Smith has averaged 8.8 targets and 81.6 receiving yards — so it's almost a wash. Yet, Smith has way longer odds than his counterpart which makes him awfully underpriced in our book.
We also have to pick someone from the Chiefs not named Kelce. One of the storylines to follow in the game's lead-up is just how healthy Patrick Mahomes' receiving unit is. During the AFC title game, three wide outs left with injury —
Toney, Smith-Schuster, and Mecole Hardman. That opened the door for Valdes-Scantling to have the most important game of his life. The ex-Packer finished with six passes for 116 yards and a touchdown. Like Smith, Valdes-Scantling current betting line is screaming value, especially after a clutch performance like that in the conference championship.
Over/Under 1.5 Hurts Passing Touchdowns
Let's turn our attention to the quarterbacks, both of which are hampered by injuries — Mahomes with a high ankle sprain and Hurts by a shoulder. For either signal caller, there's an over/under bet available on the number of PASSING touchdowns they throw during the Super Bowl. Each total is set squarely at 1.5. Of the two, we're leaning toward betting on the Hurts outcome. Here are the current odds for it:
|Over 1.5 TDs||-110||-110||-110|
|Under 1.5 TDs||-120||-110||-110|
Hurts was leading the regular-season MVP discussion up until he injured that right shoulder in early December. Since then, Hurts has managed only 504 yards passing and two passing TDs in three games. Not that Hurts has needed to do much, not with the Eagles defense leading the way. But either way, we're concerned with Hurts' play as of late. He's quite obviously not firing on call cylinders.
That's why we're betting the Hurts under here. Not only is Hurts not throwing the ball particularly well, but with him, there's always the threat of taking off and running near the end zone. He has 15 rushing touchdowns to 24 passing touchdowns this year. Hurts might get one passing TD (to Smith hopefully), but not two.
Over/Under 23.5 Points Kansas City
Here's another over/under worth considering — the Chiefs' total output. Oddsmakers have set the number at 23.5, which is about five under their season-long average (28.2) which was NFL-best. Regardless, the over is the clear-cut betting favorite as seen below:
|Over 23.5 points||-125||-125||-125|
|Under 23.5 points||+105||+105||+105|
We'll be completely upfront and say we're hammering the over. The Eagles' defense is no slouch, but they also haven't played a single elite quarterback this year. The best QB' Philly faced this year were Kirk Cousins, Trevor Lawrence, Dak Prescott, and Aaron Rodgers — none of which are near Mahomes level this season. If Prescott can go off for 347 yards and three touchdowns, as he did against the Eagles on Christmas Eve, then Mahomes can surely do similar.
Coin Toss Result
Alright, we couldn't help ourselves with this one. Look, the coin-toss bet is a complete crapshoot. There's no amount of research you can do that will remotely help you here cause it's truly a 50-50 bet with past results having zero significance. But it's such a unique bet to the Super Bowl that we had to put some money down — albeit a small amount. We're one of those that strictly abide by "tails never fails" so you know what way we're going here!
