Super Bowl 54 Props: Watch Out For the Chiefs’ Wide Receivers
If you are looking for Super Bowl props, you may have some of your focus on the wide receivers of the Kansas City Chiefs. They are undoubtedly a dangerous bunch, bringing a lot of speed to the table. And between Tyreek Hill, Mecole Hardman and Sammy Watkins, it’s hard to determine who will be the most dangerous on any given play.
We are going to take a look at those wide receivers and what they can do. Remember that Super Bowl LIV takes place on Sunday at 6:30 PM ET at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens. And while Fox is televising it, BetAnySports customers get lucky. That’s because they can get real-time wagering by accessing what is available with Sports Betting Ultra.

2020 Super Bowl: Chiefs vs. 49ers Betting Lines
|49ers||+1 (-110)||54½ (-110)||EV|
|Chiefs||-1 (-110)||54½ (-110)||-120|
Here is a quick look at Kansas City’s dangerous trio:
Under 5.5 receptions -135
Over 5.5 receptions +115
This may be the most feared receiver in the game today. But he’s had to deal with a lot of off-field issues along the way. In his latest, Hill had been accused of child abuse, which brought him a suspension from all team activities in the spring. Ultimately, a district attorney was unable to bring a case against him. And the NFL could not suspend him. So Hill essentially got a clean bill of health. Well, not exactly. He did deal with some injuries and played only 12 games.
The numbers were not as astounding this year as they were last. That’s when he had 1479 receiving yards, averaging 17 per catch. This year, he pulled in 58 passes for 860 yards. He averaged 9.7 yards per target, with a 65.2% catch rate. These are all solid numbers. And there is not a defensive back in the NFL isn’t aware of what he can do.
This guy is all about the after-burner – over the last three seasons, he’s had more touchdowns of 35 yards or longer than anyone else. The big concern on the part of San Francisco backers is that Richard Sherman won’t be “shadowing” him. Sherman’s nature is that he stays on one side of the field, so the Chiefs may keep Hill away from him. That’s a strategy that may yield success.
In the spring, the Chiefs were worried about whether Hill would be able to play. So they made a deal, trading two draft choices to move up five spots. The result was a second-round selection of Hardman, who had begun his collegiate career as a cornerback before shifting to wide receiver. So coming into the season he had had only two years at the position.
Well, he has turned out to be better than just an “insurance” policy. Hardman’s shown value as a receiver, averaging 20.7 yards per reception. And he has taken over return duties, averaging 26 yards per kickoff return. Hardman was consequently voted to the Pro Bowl as a special teamer. He has averaged 18.5 yards per touch. And there is no question that the San Francisco secondary has to be well aware of where he is at all times.
Over 49.5 receiving yards -110
Under 49.5 receiving yards -110
There are a lot of observers of the Chiefs who are disappointed with Watkins’ production, considering the massive contract he signed. But he carries a lot of importance in this offense. That’s because he can take some pressure off Tyreek Hill. Remember that unlike Hardman, this is a veteran receiver, who can play out wide or in the slot. And while Hardman is considered a major speedster at 4.33 in the 40-yard dash, Watkins is not far behind at 4.4.
Admittedly the numbers are a little modest, as he had only 673 yards in receptions. And his catch rate of 57.8% is far below Patrick Mahonmes‘ overall completion percentage. But he had a big 60-yard touchdown reception to help seal the deal against Tennessee for the AFC title. It remains to be seen how much he’ll be matched up with Sherman, San Francisco’s top corner.
