49ers Super Bowl Prop Bets
- Christian McCaffrey OVER 130.5 rushing + receiving yards
- Brock Purdy OVER 12.5 rushing yards
- Fred Warner OVER 8.5 tackles + assists
Christian McCaffrey OVER 130.5 rushing + receiving yards
The 49ers path to winning this game is through Christian McCaffrey. The Chiefs rank 28th in opponent rush EPA and 25th in opponent yards per carry, giving up 4.5 yards per rush. As we all know, McCaffrey isn't just a weapon on the ground, but he's effective through the air as well.
I can't imagine a world where the 49ers win the game but McCaffrey doesn't put up a productive performance. I'll take the OVER on his rushing + receiving yards.
Brock Purdy OVER 12.5 rushing yards
Brock Purdy may have discovered his inner scrambler during these playoffs. He ran for 14 yards against the Packers and then ran for 48 yards against the Lions last week. There's plenty of reason to think that trend may continue in the Super Bowl.
With how good the Chiefs' secondary is, there's likely going to be times Purdy is going to drop back to pass and not find any of his receivers open. When that happens, he'll be forced to try to take off with his legs.
At just 12.5, I'll take the OVER on his rushing yards.
Fred Warner OVER 8.5 tackles + assists
Fred Warner is averaging 10 tackles per game in the playoffs and he's going to have to be on his "A" game to slow down this Chiefs offense. He'll be flying all over the field on Super Bowl Sunday. Getting plus-money on him to go OVER 8.5 tackles + assists is a great bet to make.
