Worse Super Bowl Props to Bet On
All Kicker Props
Kicker props aren’t the best wagers in the sportsbook. The main reason? Teams rely on kickers as a last resort. No NFL team wants to place their faith in a kicker. This is especially true for the Super Bowl. That’s why kickers are paid less than any other player on the field. There’s a second reason to dislike kicker props. Betting on kicker props requires predicting the flow of the game. It’s hard to predict the flow of the Super Bowl.
SB First-Last TD Scorer Props
Here’s another difficult prop to hit. The reason? Both coaches in Super Bowl LIV, Kyle Shanahan and Andy Reid are experts at strategizing against their opponent. If you believe Raheem Mostert gets the first TD, don’t you think Reid will have a way to counter that? Stay away from these props.
Most SB Game Props
Most game props are had to predict. Who kicks off first? Will the kickoff be a touchback? Team with the longest kickoff return? First offensive play from scrimmage? These are all fun props, but they’re not the best to play. It takes an Edgar Cayce level of fortune-telling to hit these props.
Best Super Bowl Props to Bet On
All Player to Player Comparison Props
If you made an ATS wager, you can add steam to your against the spread wager with player to player comparison props. If you like the Chiefs at -2, why not play Mahomes in this prop?
Most Passing Yards
Player to Have More Rushing Yards
Player to player comparison props are based on handicapping and previous decision-making. Look for props that back up your against the spread wager.
Super Bowl MVP
Patrick Mahomes offers +100 in the sportsbook to win MVP. If Kansas City takes Super Bowl 54, is there any other player who will win MVP? At +100, Patrick Mahomes is a massive overlay.
If you like the San Francisco 49ers, you’ve got options. Garoppolo at +250, Mostert at +600, and even Nick Bosa at +1600 are all great options. No matter who you like, Super Bowl MVP is a good prop / future wager to make.
All WR, QB, RB & Defense Props
All individual player props and defense props are great wagers. Kansas City backers could build a proposition wagering strategy around Patrick Mahomes. San Francisco 49ers’ backers could build a strategy around SF defensive player props.
Check out two good prop wagers one for the Chiefs and one for the 49ers. Go with the prop that backs up your ATS pick.
