Here at PSN, we’re gearing up for a Philadelphia Eagles-less Super Bowl in Las Vegas & there’s never been a better time to get in on the action (I think that’s the DraftKings tagline).

We’re going through prop bets for the Chiefs and 49ers by each major position all week. I know you’re all absolutely enthralled by Taylor Swift and Travis Kelce, but leave some room in your tummies for the rest of the tight-ends playing on Sunday because we have some juicy props to fill that Blank Space in your bank account.

George Kittle | San Francisco 49ers

George Kittle | 47.5 Receiving Yards | O/U -110

The Kansas City Chiefs defense has bottled up opposing tight-ends in 2023-24, holding them to just north of 40 yards per game. Against the impressive Baltimore duo of Mark Andrews and Isaiah Likely, they allowed four total receptions for 31 receiving yards.

Kittle will make me eat my words, but against an arguably softer Detroit unit, he recorded a 27-yard performance on two catches. With the number of playmakers on this offense, it’s hard to feed everyone, and 47.5 yards feels a bit too daunting for my little heart. I’m hitting the under if I have to, but I’m likely staying away altogether.

PSN Pick | Kittle U/47.5 receiving yards

First TE to Reach 20+ Yards Receiving – Travis Kelce v. George Kittle | +285 for Kittle

I have to give it to FanDuel again for a bet with a fun twist. While I don’t think Kittle eclipses his over, it’s all too familiar watching Kittle make one big play early and revert to a sixth-lineman for the remainder of the game.

You’re getting plus-plus odds, and Kittle’s averaging 11.3 yards per target. One strong drive before the Chiefs even see the ball could have you cashing in before you see your first State Farm commercial.

George Kittle Total Receptions | 3.5 Receptions | (O -158 | U +128)

Tease me, taunt me… I like the action on the under 3.5 receptions for Kittle. It’s just low enough to talk yourself into, but in his last eight appearances, Kittles recorded under four receptions on five occasions.

We like to think this man’s running up and down the field, but the reality of 2023 is that the veteran tight end is recording less than 40+ receiving yards 40% of the time. When you look at receptions, the story worsens.

Kittle’s fallen short of four total receptions in 61% of his appearances this season, including the postseason. We like the under.
