3 Best Prop Bets for Chiefs vs Eagles Super Bowl 57
Super Bowl LVII is officially less than a week away. The Philadelphia Eagles are slated as 1.5-point favorites over the Kansas City Chiefs, according to FanDuel Sportsbook's NFL odds. A spread bet is far from the only way for bettors to get in on the action during the biggest game of the year, though.
There are a ridiculous number of prop bets available on FanDuel Sportsbook. If you need some help cutting through all the noise and identifying value, here are three of the best props to back in Super Bowl LVII.
Chiefs vs Eagles Super Bowl 57 Prop Bets
1. Anytime touchdown Scorer: Travis Kelce (-125)
Travis Kelce simply knows how to show up when the light are the brightest. The four-time All-Pro averages 86.3 yards per playoff game and has scored 15 touchdowns across 17 career postseason contests. He has been quarterback Patrick Mahomes' favorite red zone target this year, too, with 2 TDs in the Divisional Round and 1 TD in the AFC Championship game. Keep in mind the Chiefs have played in 12 games this season with a point total set at 49 points or higher and Kelce has scored 12 touchdowns in those contests. This game is expected to be a shootout and the Chiefs finished second in red zone scoring percentage (70.5%). Head coach Andy Reid will draw up a play to get his TE open in the end zone.
2. Kenneth Gainwell - Rushing Yards: Over 18.5 (-114)
An unsung hero has emerged on Philadelphia's offense during this playoff run and that is running back Kenneth Gainwell. Gainwell came out of nowhere to post the first 100-yard rushing game of his career against the New York Giants and then racked up 48 yards against the San Francisco 49ers. Now he gets to face a Kansas City defense that gave up 4.5 yards per carry during the regular season (No. 19 in NFL). The Chiefs allowed two backups in JaMychal Hasty (36 yards) and Samaje Perine (22 yards) to hit the over on their rushing prop during the first two rounds of the postseason. Gainwell may only need 4-5 carries to cash this bet and he has seen 26 carries across the Eagles' two playoff games.
3. Isiah Pacheco - Rushing & Receiving Yards: Over 68.5 (-114)
Switching to the other backfield, looks for Isiah Pacheco to make a true impact in this game. The rookie out of Rutgers proved he is a dual-threat RB by racking up 95 rushing yards in the Divisional Round before logging 59 receiving yards in the AFC Championship game. Pacheco caught 5 of his 6 targets against the Bengals as Mahomes relied on him as a dump-off option more often due to a high-ankle sprain. The Eagles finished the regular season with with the 12th-worst rush defense DVOA rating in the NFL and allowed 120.1 total yards per game to the RB position. The Chiefs will want to control the clock early in this game, which points to Pacheco having the ball in his hands a ton.
