2021 Super Bowl Player Prop Bets – Top Picks Chiefs vs. Buccaneers
The biggest sports betting day of the year is Sunday, with Super Bowl LV set to be played between the Kansas City Chiefs and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
The Chiefs -3.5 and the over/under of 56 haven’t changed much since they first hit the board following Championship Sunday. So if you’re going to play the main Super Bowl game lines, now is as good a time as any.
It’s also when it’s time to start looking at the best proposition bets and the online bets that focus on individual performances and player game awards.
Super Bowl LV MVP Odds
Quarterbacks usually win the Super Bowl MVP, and the online betting favorites for Super Bowl LV reflect that. If the Chiefs repeat, it will likely be an MVP repeat for Patrick Mahomes. If the Buccaneers win, Tom Brady is the favorite to be crowned the MVP for the fifth time.
If Tyreek Hill goes for 200 yards in the first quarter, as he did in the first meeting between these two, he’s a good bet. If Travis Kelce catches another 13 passes, as he did in the AFC Championship Game, he’s a solid bet.
Also, don’t sleep on Mike Evans, who caught a pair of touchdowns in the regular-season meeting.
You can also wager on which player will score the first touchdown of the game for either team.

Player vs. Player Props
Another favorite proposition bet is when you get head-to-head matchups on yards, receptions, and passing.
Most Receiving Yards
Most Passing Yards
Here are a couple of notes on these five individual matchups. Mahomes won the last battle of passing yardage.
Hill beat both Godwin and Evans. And it was Gronkowski besting Kelce 106-82 in what was easily his best game of the year.
Player Performance Over/Under
You can also bet on specific players and what you think their statistical thresholds will be for the game.
Mahomes is currently on the board with 27.5 competitions, 329.5 passing yards, and 2.5 passing touchdowns. You can bet the over or under on any of these lines.
The passing lines for Tom Brady are 25.5 completions, 299.5 passing yards, and 2.5 passing touchdowns.
The lines for Buccaneers running back Leonard Fournette are 49.5 yards rushing and 25.5 yards receiving. His backfield mate, Ronald Jones II, is on the board at 36.5 rushing yards and 10.5 yards receiving.
For the Chiefs, Darrel Williams is at 28.5 rushing yards and 14.5 receiving yards. Rookie running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire is at 33.5 yards rushing and 18.5 yards receiving.
