The Super Bowl is here which means one thing: bets.
There are more bets available on the Super Bowl than ever before, from coin flips to Gatorade color and everything in between. Let’s talk about prop bets and how we can cash in on the big game. Kenneth Gainwell and DeVonta Smith have had big postseasons, can they go over their props come Super Bowl Sunday? What about Jalen Hurts, the Eagles most dangerous rusher around the goal line?
Here are my three favorite Eagles player props for Super Bowl 57
Super Bowl 57 best prop bets
- Kenneth Gainwell OVER 19.5 rushing yards
- DeVonta Smith OVER 61.5 receiving yards
- Dallas Goedert anytime touchdown scorer
Kenneth Gainwell OVER 19.5 Rushing Yards
Gainwell has been a monster in the postseason, rushing for 150 yards in the Eagles two postseason wins.
Not only that, he saw nearly the same amount of snaps as Miles Sanders in the divisional round and more in the conference title game. Maybe some of that was due to the blowout nature of the games, but Gainwell took the opportunity and ran with it — literally. I think he’s earned more reps in the Super Bowl and this prop is far too low given his recent usage.
DeVonta Smith OVER 63.5 Receiving Yards
Hurts’ favorite target and former college teammate is built for big moments. The two time National Champion in college has a knack for big plays and this number is an overreaction to his postseason play.
While he stayed under this number in both games, that was due to the game script of the Giants and Niners victories, a combined 69-14 in the NFC playoffs. Against the far superior Chiefs, who can score to keep up with Philly, I expect Hurts to need to pass far more in this one.
Enter Smith, who went over this total in 10 of 17 games this regular season against a middling Chiefs secondary that allowed chunk plays to Tee Higgins and Ja’Marr Chase often in the AFC title game. It’s an unproven unit that Smith can exploit and get to this very safe total.
Jalen Hurts anytime touchdown scorer
The Chiefs have the third worst red zone defense in the league, and in close, Hurts has been the rushing threat for the Eagles.
Hurts rushed for 13 touchdowns in the regular season and in both playoff games. The team has run the most quarterback sneaks in the league and it feels that there is greater than a 50% chance that Hurts will find the end zone that these odds indicate.
