Kenneth Gainwell has been the secret weapon for the Philadelphia Eagles in the postseason, and if you think that will continue, you have several betting options you can take advantage of.
In the first two playoff games, Gainwell has rushed for 160 yards on 26 carries, while adding in three receptions for 35 yards. He also scored a touchdown against the Giants.
His usage has also increased compared to his season average. He played 37% of offensive snaps in the Divisional Round and then 42% of snaps in the NFC Conference Championship.
Because of all those numbers, you’d think oddsmakers would set his prop bets at a relatively high number for the Super Bow, right?
Let’s take a look.
Kenneth Gainwell Super Bowl props
Kenneth Gainwell rushing yards
Kenneth Gainwell receiving yards
Based on recent performances, I love the OVER on both of these prop bets.
Gainwell has reached at least 35 rushing yards in three straight games, and he’s coming off a 26-yard receiving yard performance.
Miles Sanders, the Eagles starting running back for the majority of the season, saw just 30% of snaps in the Conference Championship Game. That’s 12% lower than Gainwell.
Gainwell is also clearly, and has been all season, the top receiving option out of the backfield.
Want to get really crazy? He’s available at 125/1 to win Super Bowl MVP.
It probably won’t happen, but don’t be surprised if Gainwell has a big game on Sunday.
