Will Rob Gronkowski score a touchdown in the 2021 Super Bowl? Will there be a successful two-point conversion? Will a missed field goal hit the upright? Those are just three of the plethora of Super Bowl prop bets available leading up to Super Bowl 55 between the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday. Super Bowl prop bets are an incredibly popular form of gambling on the NFL's annual championship game, and the many 2021 Super Bowl props offer all kinds of unusual bets.
You can bet a dollar or a thousand on the pregame coin flip, how many passing yards Patrick Mahomes will have, and whether the game will go into overtime, among other NFL bets. With so much on the 2021 Super Bowl odds board, what are the top values for Super Bowl 55 props? Before locking in any NFL prop bets for Super Bowl LV, you need to see the Buccaneers vs. Chiefs prop predictions from the SportsLine Projection Model.
The model, which simulates every NFL game 10,000 times, is up almost $7,900 for $100 players on top-rated NFL picks since its inception five-plus years ago. It has also crushed its NFL prop picks this season, entering the 2021 Super Bowl on a strong 386-309 roll, returning a massive profit of almost $3,200 this season. Anyone who has followed it is way up.
The model ranked in the Top 10 on NFLPickWatch three of the past four years on straight-up NFL picks and beat more than 95 percent of CBS Sports office pool players three times during that span. Anyone who has followed it is way up.
With the 2021 Super Bowl scheduled for Feb. 7, the model has evaluated the NFL player props from William Hill and found 20 strong bets. You can only see them here.
Top Super Bowl 55 prop picks for Chiefs vs. Buccaneers
The model says Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady passes for fewer than 301.5 yards (-115). The 43-year-old Brady will be a major storyline in Super Bowl LV, as he is appearing in his record 10th Super Bowl in an attempt to win his seventh world championship.
Brady was held under 300 passing yards by both the Saints (199) and Packers (280) this offseason, as both defenses honed in on Tampa Bay's passing game. While Brady threw for 345 yards against the Chiefs in a Week 12 loss, Kansas City's pass defense has markedly improved since then and allowed an average of just 215 yards to the Browns and the Bills in the 2021 NFL Playoffs.
SportsLine's model says Brady will struggle against the Chiefs' pass defense, projecting that the future Hall of Famer will throw for only 274 yards, well below the over-under.
Another Super Bowl 2021 prop bet the model is all over: Buccaneers running back Leonard Fournette goes over 49.5 rushing yards. The former LSU great has shined in his second chance in the NFL after flaming out with the Jacksonville Jaguars to begin his career.
The oft-injured Fournette was cut by the Jaguars despite turning in 1,152 rushing yards in 2019 and latched on with Tampa Bay via a one-year contract. Fournette has shined as the featured Buccaneers back, piling up 103 rushing yards against Carolina in Week 2 and 93 yards against Washington in the wild-card round of the 2021 NFL Playoffs.
While backfield mate Ronald Jones II rushed for more yards during the regular season, it is Fournette who likely will get the start in Super Bowl LV against Kansas City. SportsLine model predicts after 10,000 simulations that Fournette will rush for 56 yards, easily clearing the over.
