Why These are Harry’s Best Chiefs Super Bowl Prop Bets
The Kansas City Chiefs overcome double-digit deficits… twice… on their way to Super Bowl LIV. They spotted the Houston Texans 24 points in the Divisional Round before storming back with 41 straight points. Then they were generous and allowed the Tennessee Titans to take a 10-point lead in the AFC Championship game before eventually claiming a 35-24 victory.
Now they face the San Francisco 49ers in what is shaping up to be a great Super Bowl. Harry Gagnon is here to make it even greater for you by trying to put money in your pockets with his best Chiefs Super Bowl prop bets.

Best Chiefs Super Bowl Prop Bet No. 1: Patrick Mahomes Over 2.5 Passing Touchdowns (+105)
Mahomes is one of the most dynamic players in all of football and he has the ability to get to three touchdowns in the first half as he proved in the second quarter against the Houston Texans in the divisional round. He is a special player who has exploded in the playoffs and most of my reasoning for taking this is the safe feeling of taking the over; he is just so good at what he does and puts up huge numbers in big games and I see him doing more of the same in the biggest game.
Best Chiefs Super Bowl Prop Bet No. 2: Travis Kelce to Score a Touchdown
It’s fair to say that Kelce is the best tight end in the business (so long as you don’t count on tight ends to block). Kelce is a clutch player and continues to be an integral part of the success of the Chiefs offense. Kelce is worth a play, considering over the past four Kansas City playoff games he has 32 targets and four touchdowns.

Best Chiefs Super Bowl Prop Bet No. 3: Damien Williams to Score Two (2) or More TDs (+500)
Running back Damien Williams has played a big role when it comes to finishing off Chiefs scoring drives. Williams scored this past week and had three scores in the divisional round against the Texans. In the AFC Championship game last year against New England, he had one rushing touchdown and two more on the receiving end. Beyond that, Williams has scored in each of his last four playoff games with eight total over that stretch.
Best Chiefs Super Bowl Prop Bet No. 4: Sammy Watkins Under 47.5 Yards Receiving (-110)
There was finally a Sammy Watkins sighting last week as he scored a touchdown for the first time since Week 1 of the regular season. That performance may have been a one hit wonder since he has gone under 47 yards receiving in five of his last seven games. With Mahomes sharing the wealth all the time, Watkins has simply been the odd man out when it comes to hauling in passes and accruing yardage. In 12 games this season, he has had fewer than 10 targets a game. More than likely, if you are betting the over, it is only because you are banking on a big play downfield, and—from what we have seen this season—that’s probably never coming.
