With the biggest sporting event of the year just days away, bettors are locking in their final picks and finding room in their bank account for all the money they are about to make.
With so many options available some may feel overwhelmed. Not event has more betting options than the final football game of the year. With so many bets to choose from, here are three top tier moves to create the perfect Super Bowl parlay.
Super Bowl Match Details
Fixture: Kansas City Chiefs vs. Philadelphia Eagles
Date and Time: Sunday, February 12, 6:30 PM EST
Venue: State-Farm Stadium, Glendale, Arizona
Super Bowl Parlay Leg #1 – Patrick Mahomes Under 294.5 Passing Yards (-110)
This is a colossal number. While it’s not uncommon for Mahomes to throw over 300 yards, seeing a prop that high is rare. Mahomes threw for 195 yards in the Divisional Round against the Jaguars but 326 in the AFC Championship against Cincinnati. Additionally, he had ten 300+ passing yards in the regular season.
However, Mahomes has not faced a top-five defense this year. Taking on the number one defense in the league, he will struggle to move the ball. Bettors should expect long, methodical drives downfield. This game will not be a shootout, and Mahomes will finish with less than 294 passing yards.
Super Bowl Parlay Leg #2 – Under 53.5 Total Points (-160)
This will be a lower-scoring game than people are anticipating. (50.5) is one of the higher totals we have seen in Super Bowl history, but it’s understandable as two of the top three offenses of the year are competing.
However, these are also two incredible defenses. The Chiefs handled the Bengals’ eclectic offense well in the Conference Championship, and they will no doubt give the Eagles trouble. As previously stated, the Eagles have the best defense in the league, so they will keep Mahomes under control.
You can take an alternative line in a parlay, as the juiced odds won’t affect a bettor in the long run and will make the parlay more likely to cash. So there is no reason not to bump up the total a few points to add some insurance.
Super Bowl Parlay Leg #3 – Any Time Touchdown: Travis Kelce (-125)
Travis Kelce has been the go-to guy for Mahomes his whole career, and in the biggest spots, he knows he can rely on the tight end. With an inferior running game, the Chiefs will rely heavily on Mahomes’ arm, and when in the red zone, Mahomes will always look for Kelce.
As an added bonus bet, bettors may consider taking a long shot play on Kelce to win the MVP (+1600).
