We wanted to give our friends at Monkey Knife Fight some love coming into the Super Bowl as some of the best bets aren’t traditional daily fantasy football lineups or Showdowns – they are prop bets.
Here are a few that we found that might be worth opening an account for.
Rapid Fire 3x
Patrick Mahomes vs Tom Brady (+30.5 yards)
When the Chiefs played the Bucs in the regular season, Mahomes had nearly 100 more yards than Brady. Last week Aaron Rodgers had 30 more yards than Brady. I am going to take the Mahomes in this one, with the Bucs ability to snuff out the run game, the Chiefs will likely throw the ball a lot, and this should keep Mahomes on top in this category.
The Pick: Mahomes
Travis Kelce (+0.5 yards) vs Tyreek Hill
There is certainly a case to be made for both Hill and Kelce, but Kelce is the much safer play. He had more yards than Hill, he had more 100-yard receiving games than Hill, and the higher yard per game average as well. That said, Hill is capable of 200+ yard games when things break right. That being said, I am taking the safe play in Kelce.
The Pick: Kelce
More or Less 3.5x
Leonard Fournette More or Less than 55.5 rushing yards
Granted 55.5 yards on the ground isn’t a lot, but Fournette passed that mark just 3 times during the regular season, and the Chiefs barely gave up more than 55 yards to Nick Chubb and the Browns who had running the ball heavily in their game plan. This should be under.
The Pick: Less than 55.5 rushing yards
Travis Kelce More or Less than 101.5 Receiving Yards
Kelce has been over 101 yards in each of the Chiefs playoff games, and about 50% of the games the Chiefs played this year. He should be over the 101-yard mark again on Sunday as he has an advantage over most defenders.
The Pick: More than 101.5 Receiving Yards
