3 Best Super Bowl 57 Rushing Prop Bets for Chiefs vs Eagles
FanDuel Sportsbook has hundreds of ways you can wager on Super Bowl LVII, and prop bets are always the most fun. It tends to be the novelty props (like Gatorade color) and the big-name passing props that get the most attention, but this is a really fun Super Bowl for betting rushing props.
Neither team is known for a traditional rushing attack, leaning on a workhorse, and both QBs can contribute with their legs just as much as with their arms.
Let's take a look at three rushing props to consider for this year's Super bowl between the Chiefs and Eagles.
Best Super Bowl 57 Rushing Props
1. Miles Sanders Under 61.5 Rushing Yards
Yes, Miles Sanders had a big game with 2 touchdowns in the NFC Championship, but he only had 42 rushing yards and his snap share has been trending down for seven consecutive games. With the three-headed monster in Philly's backfield emerging and Jalen Hurts averaging more rushes in close games, Sanders simply might not have the opportunity to get there. In Sanders' last four games decided by six points or fewer, he's averaged just 46.75 rushing yards. The spread on this Super Bowl suggests this will be a close matchup.
2. Jalen Hurts Over 10.5 Rushing Attempts
Building off the pick from above, the close spread suggests we could see more rushing from Jalen Hurts. The Chiefs are also terrible at containing the rush against opposing QBs. They surrendered the third-most rushing yards to quarterbacks this season. In games decided by seven points or less by the Eagles this season, Hurts went way over this prop in all of them except one, and that one was in Week 18 when he was playing hurt against the Giants. He has a minimum of 15 attempts in such contests thus far outside of Week 18.
3. Jalen Hurts Rushing TD (+100)
Jalen Hurts has been a touchdown machine when he rushes the ball over 10.5 times per game this season. In those eight instances, including the playoffs, Hurts has a total of 11 rushing touchdowns. He's even got one in both playoff games, and he only rushed the ball nine times against the New York Giants in the Divisional Round. This expected game script and given the Chiefs weaknesses against preventing QBs from rushing, it's got a Hurts big day on the ground written all over it.
