Mahomes vs Jimmy G Super Bowl LIV Props

Mahomes vs Jimmy G Super Bowl LIV Props

The big game this weekend features two first time Super Bowl starters in Patrick Mahomes and Jimmy Garoppolo. Mahomes is the reigning NFL MVP and was a possession away from a Super Bowl appearance last year. Jimmy G has won two Super Bowl rings as Tom Brady’s backup but hasn’t seen any meaningful playoff action until this season. Which QB will lead their team to a Super Bowl win?

Mahomes vs Jimmy G Super Bowl LIV Props

No matter if you prefer the strong-armed Mahomes and his penchant for firing off prolific TD passes or you prefer the more, ‘game manager-like’ Jimmy G, you’re going to have a great chance to cash in on both quarterbacks’ Super Bowl 54 props odds thanks to the fun-filled insight that you’re about to get.

Patrick Mahomes Super Bowl LIV Player Props Odds

Total Pass Attempts: 35.5

Let me ‘keep it 100’ by saying that his figure is super difficult to predict. Mahomes averaged 34,5 passes per game this season and he’s thrown an identical 35 passes in both of Kansas City’s playoff games this postseason. Having topped 35 passes in just six games this season, I’m going with the Under.

Total Completions: 23.5

Mahomes averaged 22.7 completions per game this season while completing more than 23.5 passes seven times. Mahomes has gone an eerily identical 23 of 35 in both of Kansas City’s playoff games this postseason. This time though, I’m going with the Over as I expect Mahomes to go 24 of 34 in Super Bowl LIV.

Total Passing Yards: 299.5

Mahomes has thrown for over 299.5 yards eight times in 14 starts this season while going 1-1 against this figure in the playoffs. With the 49ers running the ball a bunch in Super Bowl LIV to keep Mahomes on the sidelines, I’m going with the under here.

Total TD Passes: 1.5

Mahomes tossed at least two TD passes nine times this season while throwing five against Houston in the divisional round and three more against Tennessee in the AFC Championship. Stingy defense or not, Mahomes is tossing at least two TD’s in Super Bowl LIV.

Total Interceptions: 0.5

Despite the fact that he throws the ball a lot, Mahomes definitely isn’t a turnover-producing machine. With 11 career TD passes and just one interception in four playoff games, I say the likelihood that Mahomes tosses on in Super Bowl 54 is pretty damned low.

Jimmy Garoppolo Super Bowl LIV Player Props Odds

Total Pass Attempts: 29.5

Hahaha. Seriously? While Jimmy G threw at least 30 passes six times during the regular season, it’s clear that Kyle Shanahan has found his best method for success is to limit Garoppolo’s pass attempts as evidenced by the fact that he passes just 19 times against Minnesota in the divisional round and a stunning eight times against Green Bay in the NFC Championship.

Total Completions: 20.5

Uh…yeah…again…it’s not happening. Only six times has San Francisco’s franchise quarterback completed at least 21 passes this season. Play the Under here folks and keep it moving!

Total Passing Yards: 240.5

While Garoppolo has thrown for at least 241 yards 10 times this season, he hasn’t passed for more than 131 yards in the playoffs. Hell no…he won’t go – over this passing yards total in Super Bowl 54 against a Chiefs pass defense that has been absolutely rock-solid in the second half of the season.

Total TD Passes: 1.5

Jimmy G has tossed at least two TD passes seven times this season, but the odds are against him doing so against the Chiefs in Super Bowl 54. Nope, not gonna’ happen!

Total Interceptions: 0.5

Garoppolo tossed at least one interceptions in 11 games this season while finishing with a career-high 13 overall. He tossed one against Minnesota in the divisional round but didn’t throw one against the Packers in the NFC Championship, mostly because Kyle Shanahan wouldn’t let him pass the ball. Still, I like superstar defensive back Tyrann Mathieu to pick him off in Super Bowl LIV.

Super Bowl MVP Odds:  Mahomes +100, Jimmy Garoppolo +200

Unless Jimmy G throws a luck, game-winning TD pass, he’s almost certainly not going to be the reasons to 49ers pull off the upset over the favored Chiefs in Super Bowl 54. However, Patrick Mahomes is the prohibitive MVP favorite for a reason. Kansas City’s high-scoring offense runs through him! If anyone gets my vote here, it’s Patrick ‘Ma-homeboy’!
