Will speedster wide receiver Tyreek Hill have a game for the ages in Super Bowl 54? Could fellow Pro Bowl tight end Travis Kelce make his presence felt against San Francisco’s stingy defense or will the unheralded rusher Damien Williams be the driving force behind a potential Chiefs win in Super Bowl 54?
Kansas City Chiefs Super Bowl LIV Props
Whether you like the favored Kansas City Chiefs to reign supreme or come up just short of helping beloved head coach Andy Reid win his first Super Bowl title, there’s value all around if you plan on making a few fun-filled Super Bowl LIV props odds wagers on the AFC champions as they get set for Sunday’s season-ending Super Bowl showdown.
Chiefs Player to Score First Super Bowl LIV Touchdown
While Travis Kelce (+300) and Tyreek Hill (+310) are second and third to running back Damien Williams’ (+260) odds to score Kansas City’s first touchdown in Super Bowl 54, I’m going with speedy wideout Sammy Watkins at +600 to bring home the bacon here. This postseason, Watkins is second to Kelce in receptions (9) and just one ahead of Hill. While Kelce has scored a trio of touchdowns this postseason and Hill has added a pair, Watkins has racked up a team-high 190 receiving yards in two games while averaging a stellar 21.1 yards per catch. Watkins hauled in a 60-yard TD strike from Patrick Mahomes in the AFC Championship game and I believe he’s going to find the end zone first for the Chiefs in Super Bowl 54 as San Francisco devotes the vast majority of its defensive attention to the aforementioned trio of Kelce, Hill and Williams!
Tyreek Hill Receiving Yards: 61
Arguably the fastest player in the entire NFL, Hill has had a pair of relatively modest games this postseason. After catching just three passes for 41 yards and no scores in the divisional round, Hill did manage to haul in five passes for 67 yards and two touchdowns against Tennessee in the AFC Championship. While Hill will face some elite coverage against the Niners in Super Bowl 54, I am reminded of Jimmy Johnson’s penchant for fast players. Speed kills and Hill will beat the Niners deep at least once in Super Bowl 54.
Travis Kelce Receiving Yards: 41
The Niners will be focused on keeping the dangerous Kelce in check, but I feel like the Pro Bowler’s Super Bowl receiving yards odds are far too low here, making this wager one of the closer ‘sure-thing props odds bets on the board. After torching Houston for 10 catches for 134 yards and three touchdowns in the divisional round, Tennessee kept Kelce in check by limiting arguably the best pass-catching tight end in the league to just three receptions for 30 yards and no scores. Still, his modest last game leads me to believe that Kelce is going to want to show every0one that he, and not George Kittle, is the best tight end in all of football.
Sammy Watkins Receiving Yards: 50.5
As previously mentioned, Watkins has racked up a stupendous 190 receiving yards in two playoff games for an average of 95 receiving yards per game. Again, Watkins is almost a forgotten man in Kansas City’s explosive offense, but I’m, banking on the former Clemson star making his presence felt in a big way in Super Bowl 54.
Chiefs Total Points Scored: 31 +970
The Chiefs have scored exactly 31 points just once this season and that came in their Week 17 regular season finale against the division rival Chargers. Kansas City has danced all around the 31-point figure by scoring, 30 points, 32 points, 33, points, 34 points and 35 points in the AFC Championship game. Maybe it’s me, but 31 points just feels right to me!
