Most Kicking Points Super Bowl Prop Bet History
Of course, it makes sense that the player who posts the most kicking points is usually on the winning side of the game. In fact, that has been the case in four of the last six Super Bowls. But that has not happened in either of the last two big games.
Both Harrison Butker of the Kansas City Chiefs (2020 season) and Robbie Gould of the San Francisco 49ers (2019 season) logged the most kicking points despite their team losing the game.
Most Kicking Points Super Bowl Prop Bet Prediction & Pick
It is hard to bet against the Bengals' rookie here. McPherson has been on fire as of late and recently set the postseason record for most field goals made without a single miss (12). He has accounted for at least 13 kicking points in each playoff game and has posted at least nine in each of his last seven games overall.
On the other side, Matt Gay has looked anything but sharp during the Rams' postseason run. He has missed two field-goal attempts during the playoffs despite missing only two during the entire regular season. The 27-year-old has posted more than 10 kicking points just once in his last five games.
It's worth noting that neither team has shown a tendency to go for it on fourth down in 2021. The Bengals and Rams both finished amongst the bottom 10 NFL teams in terms of fourth down attempts. That means both kickers are going to get opportunities, so backing the more efficient one makes the most sense.
