Remember, a wide receiver won this last year. But more often than not it’s the winning team’s quarterback. So you can get Jimmy Garoppolo at +225. Or Raheem Mostert at +900, even though he’s probably not going to have near the game he had against the Packers in the NFC Championship. Or could he? If you want to go nuts you might even put a stray buck or two on Nick Bosa at +2500. It doesn’t happen often, but it happens. Remember Von Miller? Just saying.
Raheem Mostert will get you +650 to score the first TD. George Kittle will get you +900. I always like to take at least three or four of these guys and hope the one with the highest odds comes through. A decent SF longshot might be Emmanual Sanders, at +1600. Garoppolo will get you +4500. You never know.
Travis Kelce will get you +700 for KC, just behind Damien Williams. Tyreek Hill is +750. You could always put a smidge on Sammy Watkins at +1800 and/or Patrick Mahomes at +2000. Give yourself a decent amount of opportunities.
You think Damien Williams and Raheem Mostert will both score at TD at any time in the game? You would get back +155. Travis Kelce and Mostert is offering +220. And Tyreek Hill and George Kittle will earn you +325. They’re each worth looking at.
If you think the first pass thrown by either QB will be intercepted, you can get back +1000 on Jimmy Garoppolo or +1200 on Patrick Mahomes.
If you think somebody is going to throw a TD pass in the first quarter, Mahomes will get you +150 and Garoppolo +235.
Tyreek Hill to go over 77.5 yards on catches is +105. Sometimes he gets that in one or two plays. But he is going up against a really good defense. By comparison Travis Kelce is -112 at 74.5.
George Kittle to go under 5.5 receptions is +120. Kelce is +135.
Hill to have the most receiving yards is +275. Kelce is +350, Kittle +400. If you want more of a reach Sammy Watkins is +800. And he does go long.
For the first reception, Kelce is +550, Kittle +600 and Hill +750. Watkins would get you +900. Or you can get creative and make a reach for someone else.
If you think Raheem Mostert can do more of what he did two weeks ago, you can get back +525 if he rushes for 100 yards and scores two touchdowns.
If you think Richard Sherman is going to get one, it’ll get you +475.
KC’s Tanoh Kpassagnon, whom I covered when he played at Villanova, had two sacks in the AFC title game. If he gets one this time it would be worth +270. I have to support my guys. He’s also +675 to get the Chiefs’ first sack. All in.
For first sack, Nick Bosa is listed at +700, the second fave behind Frank Clark. I’ll take that shot. And Kpassagnon is +1400. I’ll definitely take that shot, and maybe cash on him twice.
I would also take a stab at Daniel Sorensen, who’s made so many big plays in the playoffs so far. And he’s +10,000. Time to see how much a buck might get you.
If Tyreek Hill records the longest reception, which track records indicate he very well might, he’s at plus +350 as the favorite. The other guy I would consider is Sammy Watkins, at +800.
Here’s the one I like: player to have a punt result in a touchback (including OT). Dustin Colquitt will get you +265, Mitch Wishnowsky +305. It’s hard not to see at least one touchback from somebody. Take both.
