Super Bowl LII Best Game Props Picks

The Super Bowl is to sports betting what New Year's Eve is to partying. Everyone comes out to play. There are bets to be won by the seasoned pros who do this for a living, and for the every day fan who just wants to add a little extra flavor to their viewing of the big game. Heck, you don't even have to like or know football to get in on the action on Super Bowl Sunday.

That's what Super Bowl game props are for. You might not be able to decipher the difference between a flex defense or a cover two, but you can add and subtract. And in the case of many of the game props being offered by Bovada, the decision comes down to a case of simple math.

Let's look at a few of the game prop offerings on Super Bowl LII.

Total Touchdowns Over (5.5)

Bovada has set the over/under bar on combined touchdowns scored by the Patriots and Eagles at 5.5. That seems low, especially considering the Patriots and Falcons combined for eight TDs in Super Bowl LI. True, we will be seeing the No. 4 and No. 5 scoring defenses in the NFL in action, but Philadelphia just put up 38 points on the No. 1 defense in the league in the NFC Championship Game, and New England scored 24 against the No. 2 defense in the league. 

Who Will Score The First TD? Zach Ertz (+1000)

In seven previous Super Bowls during the Tom Brady-Bill Belichick era, the Patriots have scored the game's first touchdown four times. In their two previous Super Bowl appearances, the Eagles have split the first TD honors, but they did get into the end zone first in Super Bowl XXXIX against the Patriots. New England has a habit of falling behind in the Super Bowl, so logic says play an Eagle here. We like tight end Zach Ertz. and who knows, maybe his wife Julie will cry again.

Team to Score the Longest Touchdown Eagles (+115)

We like the Eagles here. The Patriots have proven susceptible to the deep ball all season long, and we can see Nick Foles finding Alshon Jeffrey to hook up for a long TD.

NE To Score a TD In the First Quarter No (-115)

This one is a gift - the Patriots have never scored in the first quarter in any of their Super Bowl appearances.

Who Will Have More Passing Yards? Tom Brady (-165)

Last season, New England's Tom Brady set a Super Bowl record, passing for 466 yards. He's averaged 295.8 yards per game through the air in his seven Super Bowls. Are you going to bet against the GOAT?

Foles to Have a Higher QB Rating Than Brady? No (-200)

Again, seriously - are you going to bet against the GOAT in the Super Bowl? 

Total Interceptions In The Game Under (1.5)

Here's an interesting equation. Bovada has set the total at 1.5. Eagles QB Foles has yet to be picked off in the postseason. The Patriots have yet to force a turnover in the playoffs, and no team has ever won the Super Bowl without forcing a postseason turnover.

Anytime Touchdown Scorers Amendola (+175)

There are any number of possible ways you can go with this wager. The next TD for Patriots tight end Rob Gronkwoski (-150) would be his 11th in postseason play and tie him for third all-time. Eagles running back LaGarrette Blount (+200) has 10 career playoff TDs. Patriots wide receiver Danny Amendola (+175) has averaged a TD catch every other game throughout his playoff history.
