Betting On Super Bowl LV Top Player Props
The entire selection of Super Bowl LV props at online sportsbooks such as BetOnline can be overwhelming as a complete list. The best betting strategy is to break them down into separate categories, such as scoring props, game props, team props, and novelty props. One of the best list of props to bet on include the players for the actual game. Player props run the gambit for both the offensive and defensive side of the ball. Going through the current list at BetOnline, the following three player prop options all offer some substantial betting value in the actual posted odds.
Patrick Mahomes Total Super Bowl LV Passing Attempts
The betting odds for Mahomes’ total passing attempts in Super Bowl LV favor the OVER at 41.5 at -125. The betting odds for the UNDER are set at -105. The reigning Super Bowl MVP for the Kansas City Chiefs is the NFL’s ultimate young gun. At the tender age of 25, he is poised to rewrite the record books if he hangs around as long as Tampa Bay quarterback Tom Brady. He put the ball up 68 times in two previous playoff games this season. With a comfortable lead over Buffalo in the AFC Championship, passing the ball was no longer a priority. He also missed a portion of the Cleveland game due to an injury. Mahomes’ season average for passing attempts was 39.2 per game. This includes a number of blowout wins. He put the ball up 42 times in the Chiefs’ come-from-behind victory against San Francisco in last year’s Super Bowl. In anticipation of another close game that turns into a shootout, he is going OVER 41 ½ this time around as well.
Tom Brady Total Super Bowl Touchdown Passes
There are five different options to bet this prop from zero at +800 to four or more at +375. The favorite on the board at +175 is for two touchdown throws. Going back over Brady’s stats in Tampa Bay’s three-game run to the NFC Championship, he threw for two scores in both the Washington and New Orleans games. He upped that total to three in the conference title game against Green Bay. During the regular season, Brady threw for a total of 40 touchdowns. He surpassed two scoring throws in seven of the 16 games. Taking everything into consideration, including the opposing team, the sweet spot in this prop would be three touchdown passes at +275. The final one could end up being the game-winner in such as tight matchup.
Super Bowl LV Most Valuable Player
The Chiefs are favored by three points to give Mahomes the edge in this prop at -115 odds. Brady is a +240 second-favorite to garner game MVP honors. Looking back at the Super Bowl MVP winner for the past ten seasons, a quarterback has won this award seven times. Brady has won four Super Bowl MVP awards heading into his 10th appearance in the league’s title game. As mentioned, Mahomes was named MVP in last year’s game. Betting this prop comes down to which team you have winning the game. Kansas City tight end Travis Kelce has the next best odds at +1000. He is closely followed by his teammate Tyreek Hill at the wide receiver position at +1200 odds. Things drop off from there with Tampa Bay's top playmakers (Mike Evans, Chris Godwin, and Leonard Fournette) at +3300. It still comes down to Mahomes or Brady throwing the ball. Going chalk in this one with another Kansas City win, Mahomes tops the list.
