The realm of Super Bowl prop bets is largely intended for entertainment to capitalize on the millions of viewers that tune in to watch the SB each February. Proposition odds are cashing in on the Super Bowl with every snap, commercial break, or musical performance, but they can also provide intricate details regarding in-game statistical performances.
Based on the proposition bets posted at the top Super Bowl 55 betting sites, we can expect stat lines that look like the following for starting quarterbacks Patrick Mahomes and Tom Brady.
Patrick Mahomes Super Bowl 55 Stat Projections
- 331 yards passing
- 3 touchdowns
- 28 completions
- 21 yards rushing
Tom Brady Super Bowl 55 Stat Projections
- 301 yards passing
- 2 touchdowns
- 25 completions
We can also use the SB props posted at Bovada NFL Sportsbook to gain insight into the leading rushing and receiving yardage leaders and create a simulated box score to paint a full picture of what will go down on Super Bowl Sunday.
Projected Receiving Yardage Leaders For Super Bowl LV
- Travis Kelce – TE, KC – 103 yards, 8 catches, 1 touchdown
- Tyreek Hill – WR, KC – 94 yards, 7 catches. 2 touchdowns
- Chris Godwin – WR, TB – 76 yards, 6 catches, 1 touchdown
- Mike Evans – WR, TB – 64 yards, 4 catches, 1 touchdown
- Rob Gronkowski – TE, TB – 31 yards, 3 catches
- Cameron Brate – TE, TB – 30 yards, 3 catches
Projected Rushing Leaders For Super Bowl 55
- Leonard Fournette – RB, TB- 52 yards, 1 touchdown
- Clyde Edwards-Helaire – RB, KC – 33 yards, 1 touchdown
- Ronald Jones – RB, TB – 38 yards
- Darrel Wiliams – RB, KC – 35 yards
The above-projected stat totals imply an explosive passing attack from both offenses, while the running games will be less relied upon and will be mostly used to keep defenses honest.
Should either the Tampa Bay Buccaneers or the Kansas City Chiefs decide to lean upon their rushing options, they’ve got plenty of firepower available to them.
Tampa Bay features two running backs that rotate in and out to keep each other fresh. What’s unusual about their scenario is that both RBs have rushed for over 1,000 yards in the recent past for other franchises, and both can handle a full load of 30+ carries if called upon.
If the Bucs can manage to hold a lead late in the second half, then they can bring in bruiser Leonard Fournette to clean up the mess and punish a tired KC defense while allowing the final precious seconds to tick off the clock.
Fournette is a first-round talent, and despite his unceremonious release from the Jacksonville Jaguars earlier this year, he is now participating in Super Bowl 55 just a couple hundred miles across the Sunshine State from Duval County.
Tampa clinging to a second-half lead is a very big “if”. The Buccaneers will likely need to be in the lead to utilize the services of Fournette to any significant degree. As you can see by the projections above, the deadly trio of Patrick Mahomes, Travis Kelce, and Tyreek Hill for the Chiefs are positioned to light up the scoreboard something fierce.
We’ve got a hunch that SB LV will not be defined by a series of plays that result in “three yards and a cloud of dust,” so when you prepare your Super Bowl betting strategies, be sure to angle them toward the high scoring shootout that is projected above.
