3 Best Chris Godwin Super Bowl 55 Prop Bets
By Max Staley
Chris Godwin has had an up-and-down postseason. Nothing showcases that better than this two-play sequence in the NFC Championship Game, when he followed up a dropped pass with an outrageous 52-yard reception on the very next play.
For bettors looking to keep a particularly close eye on Godwin in Super Bowl LV, there are plenty of Godwin-themed Super Bowl prop bets available on FanDuel Sportsbook. Here are three of the best options.
Chris Godwin Super Bowl Prop Bets 2021
3. Chris Godwin - Receiving Yards: Over 73.5 (-110)
As mentioned above, Godwin hasn't exactly been playing his most consistent football lately. But even Godwin operating at less than full capacity is enough to clear this mark. Over his last five games, he's recorded at least 74 yards four times, averaging a whopping 88.0 receiving yards per game in that time. He's also been getting a healthy amount of work, seeing an average of 8.8 targets per contest. If he sees around 9 targets again, the wideout averaging 10.0 yards per target should have no trouble clearing this mark.
2. Chris Godwin - Total Receptions: Over 5.5 (-128)
Despite the drops, Godwin has pretty clearly become Tom Brady's favorite target lately. He's averaging 9.3 targets per contest in three postseason appearances, topping Mike Evans (7.0 targets), Rob Gronkowski (2.3) and Cameron Brate (5.3). While Godwin has only recorded reception totals of 5, 4, and 5 in those games, respectively, that's likely to change. He had a catch rate of 77.4% in the regular season, but that has plummeted to 50.0% (14-of-28) in the playoffs. That dip is mainly due to an uncharacteristic increase in drops, and if he gets that issue under control, he shouldn't have much trouble reaching 6 receptions in Super Bowl LV.
1. Chris Godwin - Longest Reception: Over 23.5 (-112)
This total feels a little low. Godwin has recorded at least one 27-yard reception in four of his last five appearances, including three receptions that went for 45-plus yards in that time. He's also playing in an offense that prioritizes the long, explosive pass, as Brady led the NFL with a 9.1 average depth of target (aDOT) in 2020. In a game that the oddsmakers expect Tampa Bay to be playing catchup, Godwin should have plenty of chances to record at least 1 catch of 24-plus yards.
