The San Francisco 49ers might be slight underdogs versus the Chiefs heading into Super Bowl 54, but that fact shouldn’t deter you from trying to cash in on the multitude of value-packed props odds surrounding the NFC Champions as they get set for this season’s NFL championship showcase.
Super Bowl LIV San Francisco 49ers Props
49ers Player to Score First Touchdown: Raheem Mostert +250
While it’s taken veteran running back Raheem Mostert five years to make a name for himself, the former Purdue University is definitely in the spotlight heading into Super Bowl 54 after rushing for a stellar 220 yards and four scores on 29 carries in San Francisco’s 37-20 blowout win over Green Bay in the NFC Championship game almost two weeks ago. The Niners are a run-first team that finished the regular season ranked second in rushing and Kansas City’s run defense has been mediocre at best this season. If the Niners are going to have any hope of beating Patrick Mahomes and the explosive Chiefs in Super Bowl 54, then they’ll look to run the ball early and often in order to keep Mahomes on the sidelines. Mostert has scored at least one touchdown in seven of San Francisco’s last eight games, making this this props odds wager one of the easiest to predict. Raheem Mostert is the pick to score Frisco’s first touchdown in Super Bowl 54.
George Kittle Super Bowl LIV Receiving Yards: 61
While pro Bowl tight end George Kittle has garnered a lot of love and many believe he is the best tight end in the game today, the third-year Pro Bowler has only managed to top 61 receiving yards five time in San Francisco’s last 10 games. With Kittle going three straight games of recording 19 receiving yards or less and Kansas City’s pass defense now one of the best in the league, I like the Chiefs from keeping Kittle from topping what looks like a relatively manageable 61-yard figure.
Raheem Mostert Super Bowl LIV Rushing Yards: 82.5
Mostert rushed for 772 yards and eight scores in 16 regular season games while averaging a stellar 5.6 yards per carry. However, Mostert only topped 82 rushing yards twice in the regular season and although he comes in off a jaw-dropping 220 yard, four-touchdown effort against Green bay in the NFC Championship, I’m banking on Kansas City stacking the box to stop Mostert while daring the mostly mediocre Jimmy Garoppolo to beat them through the air. I’m going with the under here, based simply on Mostert’s entire 18 games this season.
Deebo Samuel Super Bowl LIV Receiving Yards: 53.5
San Francisco’s impressive rookie wideout had 802 receiving yards and three scores in his debut season while topping 53.5 receiving yards five times, including the playoffs. While Deebo Samuel has been limited to 42 and 46 receiving yards in the 49er’s pair of playoff games this postseason, he’s also topped the century mark three times this season and I believe the Chiefs will focus a lot of their pass defense on stopping the Niners’ leading receiver in the playoffs. This one’s gonna’ be close, but I’m going with the over – just barely.
49ers Total Points Scored In Super Bowl LIV: 27 +790
While the Niners has only managed to score exactly 27 points once this season, it did come in the NFC divisional round against Minnesota. The Niners have scored 28 points once this season and 26 points on one other occasion while scoring 24 points twice. San Fran would like nothing better than to use their powerful rushing attack to chew up time and keep Patrick Mahomes off the field and that means they should end up somewhere in the 20s, like exactly on 27 points.
