The best aspect of the Super Bowl, in my opinion, is the games within the game. There is so much going on before, during, and after the game that makes the Super Bowl the most highly anticipated betting day of the year. While you can of course wager on the spread and total, there are numerous opportunities elsewhere to make money. One of those are on Super Bowl game props, which you can find at MyBookie.

The Kansas City Chiefs and San Francisco 49ers present what should be an entertaining Super Bowl. There are playmakers on both sides of the ball that should prove to create an exciting contest in Miami at Super Bowl LIV. It was really only a matter of time before Patrick Mahomes found his way to a Super Bowl, and after what happened last season in overtime against the Patriots in the AFC Championship, he wasted little time in responding.
Despite having to deal with a bad leg earlier in the season, Mahomes has been playing at full strength recently and it shows. He will have a sizable challenge against the 49ers’ defense, and a San Francisco offense featuring Jimmy Garappolo, George Kittle, and Deebo Samuel. I will have a prop bet article on the blog that deals with only Chiefs’ player prop bets, so be sure to check back for that. Head below for our free Super Bowl LIV game prop bets.

Super Bowl LIV Chiefs Player Prop Bets
Total Yardage Of The Longest Penalty
This penalty is basically looking at whether they will be a defensive pass interference call that results in more than 15 yards gained. A personal foul is a 15-yard infraction, so MyBookie has applied the hook to make it a DPI prop bet. They can take the half point, because I don’t believe it’s going to matter here. Mahomes is going to be aggressive against what is going to be an aggressive 49ers’ defense. He has averaged 8.4 yards per attempt, while completing 66 percent of his passes. That’s good for 3rd in the NFL with respects to yards per pass heading into the Super Bowl.
Keeping up with the Chiefs’ receivers is likely going to require their defense to be TOO aggressive in the secondary at times. I think this is going to be the most likely scenario for a long DPI call. Mahomes will look to stretch the field, and there will be ample opportunities for one of his receivers getting interfered with. Certainly, Deebo Samuel is a likely candidate to draw a call on the other side, so I think we’re going to get what we’re looking for on this bet. Garoppolo is 4th, just behind Mahomes with 8.3 yards per passing attempt. It may be juicy at -200, but I think we’re good for a win on this one.
Team To Score Longest Touchdown
This selection ties in to our previous prop bet. We noted that Mahomes is going to attempt to go deep and stretch the field with his bevy of receivers. The Chiefs are going to try and put the 49ers to sleep underneath, and then hit over the top with Tyreek Hill or Mecole Hardman deep. When it comes to the 49ers, they’re likely going to try and grind this game out and play keep away from Mahomes, at least initially. Garoppolo hasn’t had to do anything exotic in the playoffs. He passed for just 131 yards and 77 thus far in the postseason. Whereas Mahomes has connected for a total of 615 yards against the Texans and Titans. Raheem Mostert has been the star of the 49ers’ offense on the ground. I think the best opportunity for a deep touchdown is going to come from the Chiefs’ side.
What Will Happen First (Sack/Touchdown)
The question here is whether a sack or touchdown will happen first in the Super Bowl. It was a really slow start for the Chiefs’ pass rush early in the season. The Frank Clark signing looked like a major bust, but the rust came off and the Chiefs ultimately developed into a much better unit than last season. It was scary for a minute there, though. Chiefs’ fans thought they were getting the same defense as last season, but up-front, they were flying around in the second-half of the season. Clark ultimately finished with 8 sacks on the season to go along with 9 sacks for Chris Jones. Clark has already racked up 4 sacks in the postseason.
KC finished 11th in the NFL with a total of 45 sacks in the regular season. The 49ers are going to bring some pressure in the trenches as well. They were 5th in the league, having recorded a total of 48 sacks in the regular season. Arik Armstead and Nick Bosa combined for a total of 19 sacks, and as a team, the Niners have secured 9 sacks in the postseason thus far. Somebody on either side should be able to get to the quarterback before a touchdown is scored, which provides us with some decent value on a SACK to occur first in the Super Bowl.
Shortest Touchdown Made In Game
This is the Super Bowl and things are going to get difficult for offenses in the red zone. The intensity level for defenses gets kicked up ten notches around the goal-line. The 49ers and Chiefs will have to fight for every yard, and that likely means we’re going to have the ball on the 1-yard line at least a couple of times on Super Bowl Sunday.
A short run getting to the 1-yard line is probable. The NFC Championship and AFC Championship both saw scores go a 1-yard touchdown. There was also a 1-yard touchdown in Divisional Round between the Vikings and 49ers, along with a 1-yard score in the Texans and Chiefs matchup. That’s a 100% success rate in the playoffs for the 49ers and Chiefs. Look for a short 1-yard touchdown in the Super Bowl, too.
Team To Score Longest Field Goal
This bet comes down to the kickers, Robbie Gould of the 49ers and Harrison Butker of the Chiefs. Gould is the veteran that has been around the block in the NFL since 2005. The former Bear’s leg strength regressed significantly this season. He was unsuccessful from 50+ yards out, as Gould went 0/4 on attempts from that distance. His longest successful field goal attempt came at 47 yards. Gould is an aging 37-year-old kicker that can’t compare to Butker’s leg at this point in their careers.
From 40-49 yards, Gould connected for 6/8 field goals. Conversely, Butker’s range has extended out much further. The 25-year-old was 3/6 from 50+ yards with his longest kick going 56 yards. Butker was a perfect 13/13 from 40-49 yards. If there’s any doubt about attempting a long distance or going for it, the Chiefs are likely going to feel much more comfortable with Butker than the 49ers will with Gould’s old leg.
Whether you decide to tail or fade, best of luck on your Super Bowl game props betting! This is a matchup that I was hoping would come to fruition a few weeks ago, and fortunately we landed on the 49ers and Chiefs. There is a lot of talent on the field that makes this an enticing Super Bowl for prop betting.
