When it comes to the Super Bowl no player stands out more than Tampa Bay’s Tom Brady, who’s making his 10th appearance in the Big Game with six wins and four game MVPs. And I think it’s safe to say the Bucs wouldn’t be here if it wasn’t for him. No position in the game gets scrutinized more than quarterback and Brady has done just about everything during his storied career. So of course he’s featured in a number of props along with his counterpart Patrick Mahomes. It’s easy to think offense with two of the best at their position coached by the best offensive minds in the game. Because of that we’ll focus on offense.
Tom Brady Total Passing Yards
Over 301.5 ( +104 )
Under 301.5 ( -136 )
There is value on the OVER with this prop for a number of reasons. With two of the best offenses in the NFL we expect points to be scored. And there really isn’t anyone better at doing that than Brady. He closed the regular season by throwing for at least 348 yards in three games and had 381 passing yards in the wild card win over Washington. Against New Orleans and Green Bay the Bucs used turnovers to shorten the field and Brady didn’t reach the projected number. He had 199 yards against the Saints and 280 against Green Bay.
How the game plays out has a lot to do with all the player props. If the Bucs get behind you can expect plenty of pass attempts, which in turn lead to plenty of yards. We saw that situation unfold in SB LII when Brady passed for a record 505 yards in a loss to the Eagles. He’s thrown for over 320 yards in four of his nine previous Super Bowl appearances. There’s a chance Antonio Brown is in the lineup which bolsters Tampa’s group of pass catchers. Brown had 11 receptions for 138 yards in the regular season finale and has developed a close bond with Brady in their brief time. Brady got plenty of help from his line, which allowed just 21 sacks during the regular year.
Prediction: Over 301.5 ( -104 )
Tyreek Hill Total Receiving Yards
Over 94.5 ( -102 )
Under 94.5 ( -130 )
After watching Hill roast them for 269 yards in Week 12 and seeing the shifty receiver amass 272 receiving yards in two playoff games, Todd Bowles better have something drawn up to stop him. Tampa did a nice job in the NFC Championship neutralizing Davante Adams, who had just 67 receiving yards, but Hill is on another planet and will require special attention from the secondary. Hill had three 100-yard receiving games during the regular season and that’s why his projected total is where it is. But he’s a big part of the offense and his ability to avoid defenders and run away from them adds to his yardage total.
Tampa’s defense has been underrated all season showing just how good it is by getting past Drew Brees and Aaron Rodgers. The Chiefs will throw the football and with Tampa converging on Hill he will be held below the total. That opens up another wager, though. If Hill isn’t collecting the yards that means someone else is. Putting a few bucks down on Travis Kelce hitting the over is a good piggyback wager.
Prediction: Under 94.5 ( -130 )
Who Will Have More Rushing Yards?
Darrell Williams +20.5 ( -105 )
Leonard Fournette -20.5 ( -105 )
The teams ranked in the bottom third during the regular season in rush attempts so don’t expect to see a lot of handoffs. Williams rushed for just 169 yards during the regular season, but has been the go-to back in the playoffs leading the team in both games and totaling 130 yards. Fournette has been Tampa’s workhorse this postseason with 211 yards on 48 carries. I don’t anticipate the running game being a huge part of either team’s offense, so taking the plus yards on Williams looks like a good bet.
Prediction: Darrell Williams +20.5 ( -105 )
