Let’s take a look at some props for players to score a TD (anytime) and for MVP odds.
Our receiving, passing and rushing yard props will come later in the week.
To score a TD-
There will be at least 5-6 TDs scored in this one, so there is plenty of opportunity and value to be found.
D. Williams +150
I like Gronk at +225. He has had his fair share of red zone targets and seven TDs on the season. He has been quiet the last few games, but this is Gronk’s 6th SB and has 3 TD’s from Brady in Superbowls, so I think Brady will rely on this experience and for Gronk to get a TD. Another deeper sleeper would be Watkins at +260. He had 5 catches for 98 yards in the Superbowl last season, but no touchdowns. Watkins hasn’t played since December 27th but all indication says he is going to be ready to go for Sunday.
Super Bowl MVP-
Over the last 15 years, 10 QB’s have won the MVP, 3 WR’s, and 2 defensive players (both LB). A RB hasn’t won the award since Terrell Davis since 1998. Obviously, to win the MVP, your team needs win the game. Unless you think you can pull a Chuck Howley in Superbowl 5, who was the only player to win the MVP on a losing team.
Mahomes – (-105)
Brady – (+210)
Hill – (+1200)
Kelce – (+1300)
Fournette – (+2500)
Evans – (+3000)
Godwin – (+3000)
Mahieu – (+4000)
Pick- This is square, but I would bet on Brady or Mahomes. I give it a 90-95% that one of those two will win it, depending on whose respective team wins. A long shot for me would be Michael Evans at 30/1.
