Three of the 49ers' best playmakers all share the same receptions bar according to the latest 2024 Super Bowl player props. Christian McCaffrey, Deebo Samuel and Brandon Aiyuk all have an over/under of 4.5 receptions for 49ers vs. Chiefs, although the NFL prop odds differ among the three. Perhaps the most appealing of the three is Aiyuk, who scored his first career postseason touchdown in the NFC Championship Game, but hasn't been overly prolific in the NFL playoffs overall. Aiyuk has gone Under 4.5 receptions in his last seven postseason contests entering Super Bowl 58.
However, Kansas City has allowed an opposing wideout to have at least five catches in each of its three playoff games. Recent history indicates it won't be Aiyuk on Sunday, but does that mean you should instead back Samuel to hit the Over for your Super Bowl player props? Before betting any NFL props for 49ers vs. Chiefs or entering selections on sites like PrizePicks or DraftKings Pick 6, you need to see the NFL prop predictions powered by SportsLine AI.
Built using cutting-edge artificial intelligence and machine learning techniques by SportsLine's Data Science team, AI Predictions and AI Ratings are generated for each player prop. The AI predictions are determined by statistically learning from each player's historical data and then quantitatively evaluating the strength of the opponent's defense by assigning a numeric value out of 100 called a matchup score.
Once a prediction is formulated, the AI rating is generated using the prediction, the matchup score, and the odds of the market. For example, you could see a 5-star rating on an over bet if a player is facing a poor defense, their prediction differs from the line and there are favorable odds.
In addition, SportsLine AI is the first fully automated predictive model at SportsLine. It continuously refreshes on the most recent available data and can help you spot the biggest discrepancies in the lines. So far this season, SportsLine's AI PickBot has hit a whopping 1,674 4.5- and 5-star prop picks. Anyone who has followed it is way up.

Top NFL player prop bets the 2024 Super Bowl
After analyzing Super Bowl 58 and examining the many NFL player props, the AI PickBot says Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce goes over 72.5 receiving yards. San Francisco has allowed three different players to go over 70.5 receiving yards across two playoff games, with one being a tight end in Detroit's Sam LaPorta. Through the air is definitely the avenue to best penetrate San Francisco's defense as it ranks 14th versus the pass, compared to owning the league's No. 3 run defense.
The Niners have allowed tight ends, cumulatively, to go over 70.5 yards in four of their last six games. Kelce overwhelmingly dominates the target share amongst TEs on his team, and his track record makes the Over the value play. He's averaging 87.3 receiving yards this postseason and has at least 71 receiving yards in each of his last 12 playoff games. He also has had success against the 49ers, averaging 85 receiving yards in his three games against them with Patrick Mahomes as KC's starting QB. See more NFL props here.
