After six gruelling months, we have reached the final, most important game of the season. The Super Bowl odds have shifted throughout the season, but now we have just the Kansas City Chiefs and Philadelphia Eagles standing. This is the first Super Bowl since 2017 where both the top seeds from the AFC and NFC will be competing, which means we have ample opportunity to win some NFL player props when visiting the best NFL betting sites.
We’ve picked out what we think are the three best player props available for Super Bowl LVII on February 12 at 18:30 ET.
Best Player Prop – Haason Reddick to Have the Game’s 1st Sack (+400)
Why Should I Bet It? – Reddick has been on a tear in the second half of the season, with 9.5 sacks in his last six games. He has been a problem for all teams of late, and particularly early in games this postseason. In each of the two playoff games against the New York Giants and San Francisco 49ers, Reddick got a sack in the first offensive series of their opponents.
Patrick Mahomes was sacked three times against the Bengals, and the Eagles led the league with 70 regular-season sacks. Frank Clark has got Kansas’ first sack in each of the two playoff games so far and is tempting at +800 with some NFL betting apps, but we think Reddick is the play here.
Best Player Prop – Travis Kelce to have over 7.5 receptions (+120)
Why Should I Bet It? – Despite being a tight end, Travis Kelce is the undisputed No. 1 receiver with the Chiefs. He is Patrick Mahomes’ safety blanket whenever he needs a key reception, which has been shown in the two playoff games to date. He’s had a combined 21 receptions for three touchdowns so far in the postseason. With the Eagles pass rush wanting to get to Mahomes quickly, he will need his safety blanket more often.
The last time the Chiefs made the Super Bowl, in 2021, Mahomes was running for his life because of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ ferocious pass rush. On that night, Kelce came up with 10 receptions. We think over 7.5 is more than doable and at positive odds with most sportsbooks, it’s one to take advantage of.
Best Player Prop – Dallas Goedert to score a touchdown (+140)
Why Should I Bet It? – Looking at the raw stats would suggest that Dallas Goedert may not be the best bet to score a touchdown in this matchup. However, a little deeper dive into this matchup could show us this could prove lucrative when wagering at US betting apps. He only had three touchdowns all season and has never really been a prolific touchdown scorer.
However, this matchup looks to be right up our street. Goedert has had 16 receptions in his last three matches, with one of those games seeing a touchdown scored. The Chiefs gave up nine touchdowns to the tight end position in the regular season. With their hands full on the outside covering A.J. Brown and DeVonta Smith, this could give Goedert the freedom to snag a touchdown and provide you with a profit.
With the Super Bowl being the biggest game of the season and millions of people worldwide tuning in, there will be any number of player prop bets available. Just open up your betting site accounts and find the NFL picks that are right for you.
