Super Bowl LVIII Betting Props to Consider
The sports world will have their attention on Las Vegas for Super Bowl LLVIII on Sunday. The Kansas City Chiefs are looking to win back to back Super Bowl titles, as they take on the San Francisco 49ers. We are here to discuss some of our favorite betting props to consider for the big game. These are props that we like based on their return value and the thoughts on how we feel the game may go:
Heads to Win Coin Toss: +100
Okay, so there are no real statistics behind this one that we can brag about. But, if you are looking for some fun betting on the Super Bowl, and want to get off to a quick start, take this bet. This is the best 30 seconds of pregame activity you will get all season. If you do want statistics though, heads is actually 27-30 over the last 57 Super Bowls. Some say tails never fails, but heads is the choice, and ready to take it for even money.
George Kittle First Touchdown +1000
Okay, so Christian McCaffrey is obviously the top choice for the San Francisco 49ers. He has been a touchdown machine all season long. But, with the Chiefs keying on him, why not a Brock Purdy to George Kittle toss into the end zone to get the scoring started? Sounds like a fun way to start it for Coach Shanahan and his crew. Kittle comes into the game at 10/1 odd to catch the first touchdown. Bet $10, win $100. We are game!
No Gatorade Bath +1600
The tradition always goes that the winning team dumps a Gatorade jug on the winning coach. Well, what happens if they forget? Or the game is competitive and it just does not get done? What happens if it does not happen at all? All of you betting a color will lose. We are going to go with the odds we like best here and at 16/1 odds take NO GATORADE bath for the Super Bowl on Sunday!
Travis Kelce Octopus +3000
What is an Octopus? A guy scores a touchdown, and then on the very next play scores a two point conversion. Kelce could certainly do this. Will the Chiefs need a two point conversion really is the best question for this situation. Kelce is a great candidate though with his big body and reliable hands. When you can get the bet at 30/1 odds, you take it. Let’s best YES for the Octopus at +3000.
Chiefs + 49ers First Drive = Punt +425
Why not? The game could start slow, right? Maybe not a quick three and out, but maybe a first down or two, and then the drive stalls. Then, the other team gets it and cannot get the ball moving. The first 5:00 of the game could certainly be full of no major scoring action. This seems like pretty solid odd for this bet. You can grab the bet at +425!
Brock Purdy UNDER 230.5 passing yards: +135
When it comes to player props, this is one of our favorites. We alt lined this down a little bit to get the +135. The Kansas City Chiefs pass defense has been outstanding. We would like to see how Purdy reacts to the biggest stage of his life. It will be interesting to see what his ball looks like early. We are going to take the UNDER 230.5 passing yards for Purdy in this one.
Isiah Pacheco OVER 90+ rushing yards: +265
Another prop that we alt lined to get better odds. We are going to take the Kansas City Chiefs running back Isiah Pacheco to go OVER 90+ rushing yards. That is a +265 bet. The running back gets a couple big games and goes for about half of it in the first half, with the second half being even better. Do not be surprised if Pacheco reaches 100 rushing yards in this game. He is the biggest key.
Safety in the game: YES +1000
This bet seems fun. And remember the Broncos and Seahawks Super Bowl started with a safety. You never know when the defense is going to pin the offense back and get to the quarterback in the end zone. Maybe one of the teams takes a safety late in the game for strategic reasons. Obviously, odds are against this happening, but at 10/1, this is one we are considering taking. The payout is solid for it to happen!
There you have it. Those are our Super Bowl LVIII Betting Props to Consider. We hope you enjoy the game, and we want to wish you the best of luck with all your betting for the big game. Thanks for hanging in with us the entire National Football League season and into the postseason. Until next year!
