It’s time for Super Bowl LVII and boy what a game it’s going to be between the Philadelphia Eagles and Kansas City Chiefs. Both teams finished as their respective conference number one seed and feature an MVP candidate that likely finishes first and second in the award. Underdog Fantasy has plenty of props we can take a look at so let’s dive in.
Underdog Fantasy NFL Promo: Jalen Hurts 0.5 Total Yards
Yeah, I think this is probably a good bet to go over.
Travis Kelce OVER 0.5 Receiving touchdowns
When you look at Travis Kelce’s postseason career, it’s insane. He’s played 17 games and has scored 15 touchdowns. Think about that for a second. He’s scored three touchdowns in two games this postseason, he scored in all three postseason games last year, and, scored in two of three during their Super Bowl run three years ago. He’s scored in eight of his last nine postseason games and the cherry on top was Tyreek Hill being around in past years if you’ve lived under a rock this entire season, Hill’s not around this postseason run.
The Eagles have allowed just three touchdowns to opposing tight ends and I understand it’s a tough match-up, but if he does get matched up with safeties in this game, that’s where the Eagles have been slightly more susceptible than on the outside trying to target Darius Slay or James Bradberry. Strong safety Marcus Epps ranks 70th of 89 qualified and lined up in the slot for 130 snaps this year. If Kelce gets that match-up at all, look for KC to exploit it.
Miles Sanders OVER 4.5 receiving yards
I know there has been a serious regression when it comes to Miles Sanders’ pass-catching this season, but the Chiefs have been beaten by running backs out of the backfield all year long. The 112 receptions by running backs were the most in the NFL and teams targeted their backers 136 times, obviously speaking to the type of defense Steve Spanuolo likes to deploy for Kansas City.
The 20 receptions this year for Sanders was a career-low and so was the 3.9 yards per reception, but for his career, he has a 50-catch campaign under his belt and has averaged north of seven yards per reception over his career. Yes, Kenneth Gainwell has burdened more of the pass-catching duties recently, but let’s factor in the game environments in the last two weeks. His number was called on more because of the blowouts. Sanders catching passes out of the backfield could be an interesting part of the Eagles' game plan.
Noah Gray UNDER 13.5 receiving yards
In every single game this year, Noah Gray has had at least one target and in all but one game, he’s caught at least one pass. That said, it hasn’t been many times he’s had multi-reception games. He’s been targeted more than once just one time since Week 15, including the postseason games, and on the year, he averages just 10.7 yards per reception. Gray is good for one catch per game, but that hasn’t always led to him stretching the field.
