Having one of his best seasons of his career, Peyton Manning is one of the most entertaining players to watch, and is this years Super Bowl MVP favorite. Sports betting sites have a variety of different props available to bet on that are related to Peyton Manning (as well as Drew Brees if you’re interested). Betting on props can make watching the Super Bowl even more fun and exciting then it already is, and gives you a great opportunity to make some money. Below I have listed my favorite Peyton Manning prop bets for Super Bowl 44, as well as my personal free predictions on what to bet on.
Peyton Manning Super Bowl XLIV Prop Bets and Predictions:
Total Completions for Peyton Manning:
Over 25.5 (-140)
Under 25.5 (+110)
Prediction: Over 25.5
This one to me is a no brainer. In the Divisional Finals against the Ravens, Manning completed 30 of 44 passes. In the Conference Finals, against the number one ranked pass defense New York Jets, he went 26 for 39. Look for Manning to get at least 40 pass attempts, which he should be able to manage to complete 26+ of against this Saints secondary. Bet on Manning to complete over 25.5 passes (-140).
Total Interceptions Thrown by Peyton Manning:
Over 0.5 (-170)
Under 0.5 (+140)
Prediction: Over 0.5
As smart as Peyton Manning is with the football you have to believe that one of his pass attempts is going to be thrown for an interception against this Saints defense, who was third best in the NFL in the regular season with 26 interceptions. Keep an eye out for Darren Sharper to come up with a big INT in the game; he led the NFL this year with 9. Thrown a bet on Manning to throw at least one interception in Super Bowl 44 (-170).
Longest Completion Thrown by Peyton Manning:
Over 39.5 yards (-150)
Under 39.5 yards (+120)
Prediction: Over 39.5 yards
I like the over in this one. Peyton Manning should have a good game against the Saints’ secondary, who ranked 26th overall against the pass this year, with at least one 40+ yard bomb on Sunday. Look for the Colts to try and come out of the gate strong and catch the Saints off guard with a big pass play early in the game. Also if Manning can catch the Saints paying too much attention to Dallas Clark down low he’s very capable of burning the Saints secondary deep with Wayne, Collie and Garcon. Bet on Manning’s longest pass completion to be OVER 39.5 Yards (-150).
