Rams star running back Todd Gurley rushed for 10 yards on four carries during the Conference Finals. His Super Bowl rushing total is currently at 69.5 yards.
The Super Bowl is here, and that means it is officially the «Super Bowl» of player props as well, and Sports Interaction has you covered.
The smart way of selecting this winner is to select the quarterback of the winning team and place your bet. Nine of the last 12 Super Bowl MVP’s have matched this criteria. If the Rams hoist the Vince Lombardi Trophy late Sunday night, it could very well be because of him. By the way, Tom Brady’s number to win the MVP is -115, wink, wink.
Total passing yards – Tom Brady
In Brady’s two previous playoff games he’s thrown for 348 yards against the Chiefs, and 343 yards against the Chargers. Total Interceptions – Jared Goff Goff has had his ups and down this season at the helm of one of the best offensives in football. However, under the brightest spotlight one could get away. Goff threw an interception versus the Saints and 12 during the regular, perhaps one gets away from him on Sunday.
Total Rush attempts – CJ Anderson
This guy has saved the Rams season since his start on December 23. In four games Anderson has rushed for 466 yards and has averaged 20.5 carries per game. In fact, his lowest amount of carries was in the Conference finals against the Saints, but still managed 16 carries in that game. I expect him to fly over the post number at Sports Interaction of 8.5.
Total Pass Receptions – Julian Edelman
That number has increased to an average of eight receptions in two post season games.Edelman has been the perfect outlet for Tom Brady, as the star quarterback has targeted number eleven 23 times this post season. I expect it to continue in the Super Bowl and to go over the total of 6.5 receptions.
Total Pass Receptions – James White
Considering the Rams averaged 6.3 receptions against from opposition running backs during the regular season, I will risk it and say go over the total of 5.5 receptions for White .
Rob Gronkowski – Total Pass Receptions
Gronk has done basically everything he could in the NFL, and if this is his last game, the only thing left is a seat in the Hall of Fame. I don’t have any insight whether this is it, but considering he was utilized in a different capacity last game against the Chiefs, I expect a game from the big tight end that includes five to six catches. This is one of my easier selections, taking Gronk to go over the 3.5 reception total .
Total Receiving Yards – Sony Michel
When I first saw this number, I laughed, true story. In his last seven games, Michel has caught two passes, and only one in the last six games. I saw they continue that trend and Michel only does his damage carrying the rock. Go under the number of 5.5 receiving yards .
Total Rushing Yards – Todd Gurley I truly don’t think what we saw from Todd Gurley in the Conference final is the real Todd Gurley. Nobody could have predicted that one of the league’s best running backs would only rush for 10 yards and his team would get the win.
Total Rushing Yards – James White
Well, the same thing goes for James White, who doesn’t run the ball in this Patriots offence. If fact, White isn’t even the number two option of rushing the ball behind Michel,as Rex Burkhead has more carries than White in the last five games. White is a receiving back, and a very good one.
Total Rushing and Receiving Yards – CJ Anderson
It probably won’t happen, but still a great pick-up for the Rams. Anderson will be used quite a bit in this game, and if his numbers are any indication of usage in the Super Bowl,I’m predicting he flies for the number of 50.5 yards .
National Anthem – From the first note sung
My anthem pick is to go over the number of 105 seconds at -160. I also like Tom Brady at -160 to be the first quarterback shown when the anthem is underway.
Color of Gatorade – Poured on the game-winning coach
Although Lime/Green/Yellow is the heavy favourite in this category at +210, I’m going off the board and selecting Blue at +375.
