Super Bowl 54 has its two participants as the AFC Champions Kansas City Chiefs take on the NFC Champions San Francisco 49ers on Sunday February 2, 2020 in Miami. We already have a game preview and pick out on the site, so this article will focus on the top prop bets on the board. This Super Bowl is very hard to pick, so if you don’t want to decide between the two teams prop bets are a great way to get involved.
Below are my top five prop bets for Super Bowl 54. All lines are from FanDuel Sportsbook.
Patrick Mahomes to throw first INT (+135)
I like the + odds here as I don’t see Kyle Shannahan putting Jimmy Garoppolo in the position to throw many interceptions. The 49ers will rely on the rushing game again and Jimmy G will throw a lot of short passes, so the + odds on Mahomes are nice here. Sure, Mahomes is probably the best quarterback in the league, but this 49ers defense is tough and I expect them to get at least one interception in this one.
Longest TD Scored – Over 46.5 yards (-115)
Tyreek Hill, Mecole Hardman and Deebo Samuel are three players who can break a 50+ yard touchdown at a moment’s notice. With this prop also including defense and special teams I expect this one to hit in the first half. Don’t be surprised to see Tyreek Hill or Deebo take an end around for 50+ yards and I would not be surprised if Mecole Hardman makes a big impact in the return game, so at -115 I like this prop a lot.
Game to be tied again at any point after first score (-105)
All we need is 7-7 or 3-3 and this game is over in the first quarter, so I am going to hop all over this prop. I wouldn’t be surprised if this prop cashes within the first 10 minutes of this game, so at -105 I really like this one. I am also going to throw some money on this game going to OT, so if I am going to place that wager I have to also place this one.
Travis Kelce – First Tight End to reach 20+ receiving yards – this is only between Kelce and Kittle (-120)
The way Travis Kelce has had one huge playoff game, against Houston, and one not so great playoff game, against Tennessee, but I think he goes off in this one. This is another prop that I would not be surprised to see cashed on the Kansas City first drive. Kelce can get this all on one play on the opening drive, so I like this at -120. Kittle is very capable of a big play, and monster game, but I expect the 49ers to rely on the rushing attack to start the game, so I expect Kelce to start off better in Super Bowl 54.
Under 44.5 total first downs (-115)
I expect big plays from Kansas City and a lot of running from San Francisco so I think under 44.5 first downs is a good play here. The only worry in this one is that San Francisco is so good at milking the clock and pick up 5-6 first downs every drive. However, I like the Kansas City defense to stifle them a bit and for this one to finish around the 40 first down range.
