Super Bowl Prop Bets 2020: National Anthem, MVP and Best 49ers vs. Chiefs picks


The producer who brought you the Super Bowl MVP Long Shot last year (Julian Edelman, 20/1) and last year's first touchdown scorer (Alshon Jeffery, 12/1) – along with many other winners – bring the next episode of never boring eternal prop bets saga.

Somehow we will survive without Tom Brady and Bill Belichick.

Here are some of the best and most entertaining tips for the Super Bowl:

National Anthem length

Under 1 minute, 59 seconds (+170): The end is a strong favorite (-250), probably due to Demi Lovato's 2-11 performance before fighting Floyd Mayweather-Conor McGregor in 2017. However, Lovato has also sung the anthem in three World Series games, all of which came in under 1:59.

coin toss

Cocks (-102): Tails rarely fails, winning five of the last six Super Bowls.

George Kittle receives yards

Under 73½, -110: Playing less than 100 percent could catch up with the tight end of the 49s. In the division round, he had 16 yards. In the NFC championship, Kittle got a pass for 19 yards.

Total number of chiefs to be achieved

Over 3½, +100: Kicker Harrison Butker is a matter of course. Patrick Mahomes shouldn't have a problem finding three more. Maybe he'll take part again. The Chiefs have scored at least four goals in four consecutive games, while hitting the mark twelve times this season.

Patrick Mahomes hurries around

Over 30½, -110: Mahomes has run four 50 meters this season. Most importantly, it has happened in the last two games. The playoffs have increased the urgency of last year's MVP and reduced its need to play it safe. Against a strong 49ers pass rush, Mahomes has many options to leave the pocket.

Jimmy Garoppolo attempts to pass

With 29½ pass attempts -110: San Francisco's quarterback has missed 30 passes in 11 of 18 games this season, including the last four competitions.

Robbie Gould shows

Over 7½, +100: The 49ers kicker scored at least eight points and 15 direct field goals in six direct games. The Chiefs are the league's eighth best defenders in the red zone – they allow touchdowns in 51.6 percent of the time – and could offer Gould several easy opportunities.

Attempted rush to Tyreek Hill

Over ½, +175: The quick receiver has at least one carry in eight of his last eleven games, including the Chiefs' two playoff games.

Team with the longest starting yield

Chiefs, -125: Mecole Hardman was fifth in the NFL with 26.1 yards per return, including a 104-yard touchdown.

Biggest head start

Under 14½, +110: The game will be close. The game stays close.

First touchdown

Kendrick Bourne (20/1): The uncovered receiver has the only touchdown reception of the 49ers in the playoffs and had five team-strong touchdown catches in the regular season, although it met for the first time on Halloween.

Travis Kelce (9/1): Although Kelce only had three catches for 30 yards in the AFC championship, he gained 10 catches, 134 yards and three touchdowns the previous week. Kelce's 136 destinations are the most attractive. Hill ranks second among the chiefs at 89.

Puppy bowl winner

Team Ruff, +100: They came through for me last year and I didn't see anything on tape that Team Fluff (-140) would be ahead of.

Will Joe Buck or Troy Aikman say "patriots"?

Yes, +200: It will turn out to be the first Super Bowl in four years without New England.

Lakers Stars vs. Deebo Samuel

LeBron James and Anthony Davis score against Kings Saturday (-1½) while Deebo receives Samuel Yards: The Lakers Stars are a barrier to score at least 50 points per game. The 49ers rookie receiver has only five times more than 50 yards in 18 games this season, including one in its last five games.

Super Bowl MVP

Tyreek Hill (25/1): Keep in mind that three of the last six MVPs were not quarterbacks. Hill is a major threat – his NFL-leading 17 touchdowns of 50 yards or more since 2016 are eight more than the second best in the league – are bankrupt and should benefit from Sammy Watkins’s strong postseason. Hill also has added value as a punt returner and has scored four such touchdowns in his career.

Raheem Mostert (8/1): Speaking of due, a running back has not won the MVP since 1998 (Terrell Davis). Mostert has no chance of repeating his 220-year dominance in the NFC championship with four touchdowns, but has averaged 5.75 yards per carry with seven touchdowns in the last seven games and will get even more chances now. Jimmy Garoppolo (+375) is also a strong game with a good chance for a quarterback – the position has won the award 29 times – in a coin toss game.

Who the MVP names first after receiving the award

Siegerstadt, 10/1: Here is a way to recognize Mahomes as the MVP winner. The chief’s quarterback thanked fans first after winning the AFC championship, and the team’s 50-year drought offers a greater chance than usual that God, family, teammates and coaches will be recognized later. The 49ers have not won a title in a quarter of a century and offer the same chance.
