Super Bowl LV BetNow Props Wagering Analysis 

Props sports betting can range from basic to absurd.  For example, you can bet on the color of Gatorade splashed on the winning coach.  Or situations regarding commercials and the halftime show.  You can even bet on heads or tails on the opening coin toss.  These are not scientific bets.  Instead, they resemble the wheel of fortune or keno.  However, there are numerous more serious prop bets, too at BetNow Sportsbook. 


Player to Score the First Points

The player to score the first points of the game Betting on Super Bowl is a traditional favorite prop.   Remember, the first points of the game can be a field goal as well as a touchdown.  To show, kickers Harrison Butker of the Chiefs and Ryan Succop of the Bucs are 5/1 favorites.  Chiefs running back Clyde Edwards Helaire is at 15/1.  While at 15/2 is KC tight end Travis Kelce and wideout Tyreek Hill.  Tampa Bay wideouts Mike Evans (14/1) and Chris Godwin (13/1) are intriguing picks too.  Perhaps the best value on the board is Tampa Bay tight end Cameron Brate at 28/1.  

Highest Scoring Quarter

The opening Super Bowl betting odds for the highest-scoring quarter are 1st quarter +450, 2nd quarter +125, 3rd quarter +450, 4th quarter +150, Tie +750.  Notice that the 2nd and 4th quarter prices are the favorites.  Cause by oddsmakers respecting the comeback ability of Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes.  So too, are the linemakers making a good read of the betting public.  

Super Bowl LV MVP:  Tom Brady +150, Travis Kelce +1000, Patrick Mahomes -120, Tyreek Hill +900

Super Bowl Most Valuable Player is among the most standard of props.  Also, this bet is among the most strategic.  It’s a prop with more to think about than what beer commercial runs first.  

Naturally, the quarterbacks are overlay favorites.  Tampa Bay’s Tom Brady and Kansas City’s Patrick Mahomes command overlay prices.  Bargain hunters will look down the list a little.  Kansas City tight end Travis Kelce is a smart target.  Kelce is Patrick Mahomes’ favorite target.  This KC tandem reads off and improvises with each other like none other.  

To summarize, Brady and Mahomes are too expensive to offer value.  Contrarily Travis Kelce offers impact ability at an excellent price.  

Passing/Receiving Yards Leaders in Super Bowl LV

Props on the passing/receiving yards leader in the Super Bowl is similar to a parlay.  The Mahomes/Kelce tandem are prohibitive 3/1 favorites.  However, if Mahomes has the most passing yards, but a player other than Kelce leads the game in receiving yardage, the prop bet loses.  On this prop bet, you have the option of taking players from different teams.  For example, you can get a combo of Mahomes and Tampa Bay wideout Chris Godwin at 10/1.  

Number of Touchdown Passes

Most of all, quarterbacks Patrick Mahomes and Tom Brady will generate unprecedented Super Bowl betting hype.  You can get odds on either quarterback throwing from zero to six TD passes in the game.  Likewise, you can even bet on BOTH quarterbacks at different TD pass totals!
