2024 Super Bowl LVIII odds: Best player prop bets for 49ers-Chiefs

Welcome to Super Bowl week! 

As a fan, I’m pumped about watching this game between the San Francisco 49ers and the Kansas City Chiefs in Las Vegas. 

When it comes to how I bet on the Big Game, I wager on the Super Bowl in two simple ways. 

The first spot I like to wager is on quarterbacks if I feel there’s a big gap in talent. That’s the case in this Super Bowl. That doesn’t mean Brock Purdy hasn’t played well in this Niners offense. He has. But when it comes down to making plays in the biggest moments of Super Bowl LVIII, I’m taking Patrick Mahomes. 

So I have the Chiefs’ moneyline. It was the first wager I made after the 49ers beat the Lions. 

The second way I wager on the game is the prop market. However, I keep it simple. I just wager on props based on how I believe the game will play out. If it doesn’t go that way, I’m probably out of luck. 

Big note: I end up being on the right side more often than not. 

So, here goes. 

Fade or follow. Good luck!

Rashee Rice — Over/Under Receptions 6.5, Over/Under 66.5 Receiving Yards

The 49ers defense is static on nearly 80% of its snaps. It lines up, doesn’t move and just plays ball. 

That’s not a winning formula for playing well against Kansas City’s offense, even if the Chiefs’ receiving group isn’t elite. 

Mahomes is going to find holes in the 49ers zone defense. We’ve seen this season — and more specifically against the Ravens — that he’s got no issue getting rid of the ball quickly to gain yards.

Rookie wide receiver Rashee Rice turned into a legitimate target for Mahomes in the final weeks of the regular season and into the playoffs. His 20 receptions, 223 yards and one touchdown in the postseason are more than the rest of the Chiefs receivers combined. 

Rice has the second most yards after reception in the NFL this season, averaging 8.4 per reception.

I think Rice is the main target for Mahomes…
