First Touchdown Scorer Prop

Travis Kelce and Tyreek Hill Favored
Tyreek Hill (+500) finished second in the NFL with 15 touchdowns and crossed the goal line three times in the Chiefs 27-24 Week 12 win over the Buccaneers, so he’s the rightful favorite to score first in the Super Bowl along with teammate Travis Kelce (+500). The league’s best tight end caught eight passes for 82 yards in that same game against Tampa Bay with no spikes.
Operating as one of the NFL’s most dangerous red-zone weapons, Mike Evans (+900) is a screaming value considering he’s already caught two postseason TDs along with his 13 regular-season scores. Rob Gronkowski (+1200) has been limited to two receptions for 43 yards in three playoff contests this year, but only Jerry Rice (22) has more career postseason receiving touchdowns than Gronk (12), who also happened to enjoy his best game of 2020 against the Chiefs (6 catches, 106 yards).

While he hasn’t played since Week 16, Sammy Watkins (+1800) was a playoff stud for Kansas City last season, compiling 288 yards receiving yards and a touchdown in three postseason games. That includes a 5-for-98 line in Super Bowl 54 where he burned Richard Sherman for a crucial 38-yard catch late in the fourth quarter. Best Bet: Sammy Watkins (+1800 at Bovada)
Most Receiving Yards In The Game Prop

Value In Buccaneers Pass Catchers
With 1,416 receiving yards this season, Kelce (+130) finished only behind Stefon Diggs (1,535) in the entire NFL and 140 yards ahead of Tyreek (1,276), although Hill (+155) has outproduced him (282 to 227) in their two postseason games. The Chiefs also have the aforementioned Watkins (+1500) and big-play threat Mecole Hardman (+1700).
Through three playoff games, Chris Godwin (+700) leads the Buccaneers with 223 receiving yards, a pace almost identical to the 70 yards per game average in the regular season.

While he’s currently listed as doubtful for the Super Bowl after missing all of practice last week, Antonio Brown (+1400) is “getting close” to returning, according to Bucs coach Bruce Arians on Monday. Keep an eye on the situation as Mr. Big Chest went for 93 yards and 138 yards in two of his final three regular-season contests and has the Hall-of-Fame skill set to get behind Kansas City’s defense. Best Bet: Antonio Brown (+1400 at Bovada)
