NFL Betting: Over 500 Player and Team Props Tell Full Story of Super Bowl XLIX
The Super Bowl is renowned world wide as the pinnacle of football supremacy. It’s the most anticipated match in which the National Football League crowns a champion. It also happens to be the most fascinating time of year for the NFL betting community. This year’s New England versus Seattle clash is no different and with over 500 Super Bowl Prop bets there's lots to choose from. Let's discuss a few of the betting options.
Tom Brady and the Patriots only just hold the edge as 2-point favorites, and the total has gone down from 48.5 to 48. The great thing about the Super Bowl are the sheer variety of NFL props that sports bettors can get stuck into. You can bet on who will win MVP (Most Valuable Player), with Tom Brady at the top of the list at 9/5, and Russell Wilson second in line at 7/2. Or if you’re more interested in the actual game action, the Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch is favored to make the first touchdown at 11/2.
Looking around at the other available prop bets Bovada have total passing yards, and Brady’s total is 260.5 as we go to press; the over is favored (-130 on the moneyline). He topped that mark seven times during the regular season, but he wasn’t lined up against Richard Sherman and the Seattle secondary in any of those games. Russell Wilson’s total is a bit lower at 219.5. He’s able to count on Lynch for help with the offense.
