This article will highlight eight prop bets on quarterbacks, running backs, wide receivers, and tight ends for the NFL Super Bowl that appear favorable based on the output of the Professor’s predictive model. The numbers and prices available are from DraftKings.
Joe Burrow, QB, CIN: 273.5 Passing Yards, 1.5 Passing TDs
Matthew Stafford, QB, LAR: 279.5 Passing Yards, 0.5 Interceptions
Quarterback Joe Burrow and Matthew Stafford have been clutch for their respective teams throughout the NFL Playoffs, and The Professor likes both to play at a high level in this game. The defenses they will face are not pushovers, and each team’s lead receiver could see a lot of the opponent’s best cornerback (Ja’Marr Chase vs. Jalen Ramsey, Cooper Kupp vs. Mike Hilton), but both teams have pass-catching groups that are deep enough to give their quarterbacks options if their top targets are slowed down.
