Best Super Bowl prop bets: Head-to-head battles

With head-to-head betting, you can take a player on the moneyline, spread, or bet on the combined total of both players’ output.

Jalen Hurts vs. Patrick Mahomes (-45.5) passing yards

While both of these quarterbacks are candidates for this year’s MVP, they come with vastly different styles.

Patrick Mahomes has been airing it out all season, averaging an otherworldly 308.8 passing yards per game, far and away the league’s best.

Meanwhile, Jalen Hurts was no slouch at 246.7 per game, but he also did a lot of his damage with his legs (50.7 YPG).

It’s a big spread when you factor in that the Eagles have the league’s top pass defense. The Birds only allowed 179.8 through the air per game, which should make this head-to-head battle a tight one.

Miles Sanders vs. Isiah Pacheco (+7.5) rushing yards

Philly’s identity is unquestionably its run game. The Eagles bulldozed teams all year long on the ground, averaging 147.6 yards per game.

Miles Sanders did most of the damage, racking up 1,269 rushing yards at 4.9 yards per tote. His 74.6 YPG average dwarfs Isiah Pacheco’s season average of 48.8, making this spread seem a little light.

The Chiefs did have the better run defense this season (107.2 YPG to Philly’s 121.6), but Sanders’ -7.5 handicap stands out, considering he averaged over 25 yards more than Pacheco per game.

Dallas Goedert vs. Travis Kelce (-36.5) receiving yards

Travis Kelce is a wrecking ball and has been Mahomes’ main man for years.

He had another stellar season, piling up 1,338 yards for a 78.7 YPG average. But this spread might be a bit bloated.

His counterpart, Dallas Goedert, is on the fringe of being an elite tight end himself. Goedert missed five games to injury but still put up an impressive 702 yards (58.5 YPG) on the year.

Let’s not forget that Kelce will be going up against the best pass D in the league, while Goedert will face a leaky (and inexperienced) Chiefs secondary.

Jake Elliott vs. Harrison Butker (-0.5) field goals made

With the number of touchdowns both these teams score, field goals are generally an afterthought. But when the game gets tight, you can count on one of these kickers having to come up big.

Harrison Butker sent the Chiefs to the Super Bowl with a clutch kick last Sunday and is now 5 for 5 in the playoffs.

Jake Elliott has been solid all year, missing just three kicks, but his services haven’t been needed much in two blowouts this postseason. The Eagles kicker has only been called on twice in two games and has made both.
