Favorite Player Props for Super Bowl LV
With a game projected to be high scoring (over/under set at 56.5 points), it can be a smart strategy to take player overs for their props. If you envision a shootout, loading up on a few of the best players to have big games gives you a rooting interest in big plays.
For Kansas City, the stars are the trio of Patrick Mahomes and his top two pass-catchers, Tyreek Hill and Travis Kelce. Mahomes’ over/under is listed at 325.5 passing yards.
Hill’s receiving yardage total is at 92.5 yards, while Kelce’s yards are set at 95.5.
Tampa Bay has more of a balanced offensive attack. Tom Brady, going for his seventh Super Bowl win, has a yardage over at 295.5.
Running back Leonard Fournette’s over is listed at 47.5 rushing yards, while leading receiver Mike Evans needs just 63.5 receiving yards to hit his over.
If you prefer to root for players to score touchdowns, there are plenty of interesting bets to be made. While touchdowns are a bit more up to chance, it can be exciting when the offense gets in the red zone, knowing your player has a chance to score.
