2017 NFL Super Bowl 51 Defense Vs Defense Props

Written by on January 30, 2017

Will the Atlanta Falcons’ defense get torched by future Hall of Fame quarterback Tom Brady en route to an embarrassing Super Bowl 51 win? Will New England’s league-leading scoring defense be able to shut down Matt Ryan and the high-scoring Falcons? Will either team record a defensive or special team’s touchdown – and if anyone records an interception in Super Bowl 51, who will it be? If you’re interested in increasing your Super Bowl 51 betting bankroll on the value-packed, defensive-based props odds, then let’s get started.

2017 NFL Super Bowl 51 Defense Vs Defense Props


Total Interceptions By Both Teams

Over 1.5 -135 Under 1.5 +115 Analysis: The New England Patriots ranked in a three-way tie at a modest 15th in team interceptions this season with 13 while Atlanta ranked tied for 20th with a dozen. Right now though, I’m thinking both quarterbacks are going to toss one pick to the very least. This is a tough wager, but I’m going with the value-packed Over pick here. Pick: Over 1.5 Interceptions

Total Fumbles Lost By: Both Teams 

Over 1.5 +155 Under 1.5 -175 Analysis: The Patriots fumbled the ball a whopping 27 times this season compared to Atlanta’s grand total of eight fumbles. You may be a bit stunned like me, but the Pats apparently are more likely to fumble in Super Bowl 51, though I just don’t see two fumbles in Super Bowl 51. Pick: Under 1.5 Fumbles

Will There Be A Special Teams Or Defensive Touchdown? 

Yes +145 No -165 Analysis: No Patriots defensive player recorded a touchdown this season while Atlanta Pro Bowl linebacker Vic Beasley scored one and defensive end Adrian Clayborn score another. The likelihood is that no defensive touchdowns will be scored. Pick: No

Will Malcolm Butler (NE) Intercept A Pass? 

Yes +250 No -300 Analysis: Malcolm Butler had four interceptions in 16 regular season games this season, but may be due for one after going the last three games without snaring one. Butler intercepts Matt Ryan in Super Bowl 51. Pick: Yes

Will Ricardo Allen (ATL) Intercept A Pass? 

Yes +400 No -500 Analysis: Allen has two interceptions in 16 games this season and recorded one in both, the divisional round and AFC Championship against Seattle and Green Bay. Could it be that Allen makes it 3-for-3 this postseason? I say, yes! Pick: Yes
