- Patrick Mahomes is favored to throw both more touchdowns and interceptions than Jalen Hurts

Patrick Mahomes versus Jalen Hurts is a historic Super Bowl matchup in more ways than one. At a combined age of 51 years and 337 days, they’re the youngest signal callers in NFL history to square off for the Lombardi Trophy. Super Bowl 57 is also the first title game to feature two black starting quarterbacks.

Mahomes vs Hurts
Bovada allows you to bet a number of head-to-head quarterback props. Patrick Mahomes is heavily favored to throw more touchdowns (-250) than his counterpart. That’s simply because his 648 regular-season attempts dwarfed Jalen Hurts’ 460. However, Hurts is worth considering at +170 for more passing TDs, and at +110 for first passing score.
Philadelphia’s defense allowed the fewest passing yards in the NFL this season (179.8 per game). And no one permitted more passing TDs than Steve Spagnulo’s defense (33). Kansas City allowed 11 of 17 starting QBs to toss multiple TDs against them in 2022. We also like Mahomes for more interceptions (-130) and first interception (-140). While he’s already one of the greatest QBs ever to play the game, the 27-year-old threw two picks in each of his previous Super Bowl appearances.

Total Rushing Yards
|Jalen Hurts||48.5 (-115)||48.5 (-115)|
|Patrick Mahomes||18.5 (-115)||18.5 (-115)|
Two mobile quarterbacks
Jalen Hurt’s over/under for rushing yards is set at 48.5. The dual-threat superstar eclipsed that mark in only seven of 17 contests in 2022, while rushing for 833 yards and 15 touchdowns (an all-time record). The Eagles starter was held under 40 yards in each of his two playoff games. But, those games were blowouts. In a close battle, Hurts will have a green light to tear up a KC D that allowed the fifth-most QB rushing yards (444) this season.
We also like the OVER 18.5 rushing yards for Mahomes. The Eagles permitted even more rushing yards (448) to QBs than the Chiefs this year. And, the soon-to-be two-time NFL MVP will be forced to improvise to score points against one of the league’s best defenses.
|Jalen Hurts||36.5 (-115)||36.5 (-115)|
|Patrick Mahomes||37.5 (-115)||37.5 (-115)|
Both signal callers have a similar over/under for longest completion. Mahomes (o/u 37.5 yards) led the league in both 30-yard completions (27) and 40-yards strikes (12). And Hurts (36.5 yards) was right behind him with 23 passes of more than 30 yards and 11 deep calls over 40 yards.

The Chiefs secondary is certainly the more burnable of the two units, but Hurts’ deep-ball accuracy looked off versus San Francisco. Possibly due to his right shoulder sprain. We have more faith in Mahomes hitting his over, but it won’t be easy against Darius Slay, James Bradberry and company.
