Reid rented in Philly and bought in Kansas City. That should mean something.
Las Vegas has turned this event into a never-ending spigot of wagers, and I think this is the first year I’ll convince my fiance of the thrills of gambling (Rihanna‘s first song, of course).
While you can bet on anything from the length of the national anthem to the color of the final Gatorade shower, let’s not forget about the action between the sticks. FanDuel’s gotten quite creative this year and offers more ways than ever to put cash on the line.
Here are three pre-packaged bets offered by FanDuel that will offer you massive payouts while you watch the final showdown of the 2022 NFL season. Trust fall.
Kenneth Gainwell – Method of First Touchdown – Receiving TD
Acknowledging that the NFC Championship has a strange flow, Gainwell out-snapped starter Miles Sanders 31 to 22. The week prior against the Giants, they were almost equal.
Gainwell has averaged about two targets a game over the last three weeks and doesn’t have a receiving touchdown on the season. Still, it almost feels like Nick Sirianni has been showing us that he wants Gainwell heavily involved on Sunday.
I wouldn’t be surprised if Gainwell finds a way to spoil first touchdown props with a nice little screen scamper into the endzone.
Odds & Payout: you can find this on FanDuel Sportsbook at +1000 odds or $10 to win $100.
First Touchdown Scorer Combo – Travis Kelce or Jalen Hurts
Plus, if one of these guys scores first, it’ll put a little pit in your stomach watching the next drive. Through parlay, I find pain. Through pain, I find hate. Through hate, I live bet. Through live bet, the Force will free me.
Odds & Payout: +320 odds or $10 to win $32.
Philadelphia Eagles to Record 5+ Sacks vs. Kansas City Chiefs
Sacks haven’t been hard to come by for the Eagles in 2022.
It’s not surprising that the Eagles led the NFL with an average of 4.1 sacks per game, spearheaded by Haasan Reddick’s 19.5. Five total sacks don’t seem out of the question with a relatively hobbled Patrick Mahomes.
You’re getting solid odds, and you’re not even asking Philadelphia to win, although if they get to Mahomes five times, you’d think it was a good day.
Where to find: you can get this at +550 or $10 to win $55.
Quez Watkins – Anytime Touchdown Scorer
Quez Watkins has the same odds of scoring as the Kansas City defense. That doesn’t seem right.
Watkins doesn’t have a touchdown since Week 12 and only recorded one target in last week’s win over the San Francisco 49ers, but I’m betting this because it’s the Super Bowl.
If you bet on an AJ Brown touchdown, you’ll pull your hair out when Gainwell, Watkins, Jack Stoll, and Boston Scott all score. It’s the Super Bowl, and you don’t save anything, so I like the high-value afterthoughts over the stars.
Odds & Payout: you can get this at +750 or $10 to win $75.
Britain Covey to Return a Kick/Punt for TD
One for them, one for you.
This flat-out doesn’t make sense. Covey ranks 43rd in the NFL in total kick return yards but 8th in punt return yards, so there’s some upside. It probably won’t happen, but just imagine how smart you’ll feel when it does.
Odds & Payout: you can get this at +3000 or $10 to win $300.
