Tyreek Hill and Travis Kelce Both to Record 80+ Rec Yards (+135, BetMGM)
BetMGM has a two-player receiving parlay worth its weight in gold. The dynamic duo of speedy wide receiver Tyreek Hill and arguably the game’s best tight end in Travis Kelce have been offensive dynamos for Patrick Mahomes this postseason.
Tyreek Hill followed up a 110 yard performance against the Cleveland Browns with a gaudy 172 yard performance on nine receptions in the AFC Championship game. That’s an average of 141 receiving yards per game.
Kelce has been no slouch. He’s racked up 227 yards in two postseason games, including 109 yards against the Browns and 118 yards against the Bills.
Hill torched Tampa Bay for 269 receiving yards when the teams met this season, while Kelce contributed 82 of his own.
Tampa Bay’s defense is the real deal, but holding Hill and Kelce in check appears to be an unlikely task to complete.

Leonard Fournette to Rush for 50+ Yards and Bucs to Win (+250, DraftKings)
While Kansas City is likely to try to win the game through the air with reigning Super Bowl MVP Patrick Mahomes under center, Tampa Bay is more likely to go with a balanced attack. Bettors looking for additional value on a Tampa Bay win in Super Bowl 55 can get it with a parlay including lead back Leonard Fournette rushing for 50+ yards at DraftKings Sportsbook.
Fournette has rushed for at least 55 yards in each of the Buccaneers’ first three games this postseason on double-digit rushing attempts.
While his rushing attempts have dropped in each of Tampa Bay’s postseason games, it’s worth noting he’s seen an increase in targets in the passing game in each of those games. Assuming he sees double-digit carries, 50 yards should be a reasonable threshold to meet, especially if the Buccaneers are to win.
Travis Kelce to Record 75+ Receiving Yards and Score a Touchdown (+100, FOX Bet)
This is one of our favorite Super Bowl 55 player props.
Travis Kelce is arguably the best tight end in the entire league and his connection with Patrick Mahomes is indisputable. The tight end has found the end zone in six consecutive games dating back to Week 14 of the regular season, doing so seven times.
Not only does Kelce have a propensity for finding pay dirt, but he racks up big yardage in the passing game along the way. He’s had at least 98 receiving yards in five of his last six games and has had at least 75 receiving yards in nine of his past ten games overall. In the lone meeting between the teams this season, Kelce had 82 yards on eight receptions. Tampa Bay was one of just five teams all season to keep him out of the endzone.
We expect Kelce to be used as a safety valve for Mahomes and break at least one play of 20+ yards. He should also score a touchdown in Super Bowl 55.
Tom Brady to Throw the First Interception (-155, FanDuel)
Super Bowl 55 will feature one of the most highly-anticipated generational quarterback showdowns as Tom Brady’s Tampa Bay Buccaneers host the reigning Super Bowl MVP Patrick Mahomes. Both men had stellar seasons, racking up gaudy touchdown numbers while limiting turnovers through the air.
While Tom Brady threw more regular season touchdowns (40) than Mahomes (38), he also racked up more interceptions (12 v. 6). Mahomes hasn’t thrown an interception through two playoff games this season, while Brady threw all three of his postseason interceptions against the Packers in the NFC Championship game.
In the lone matchup between the teams this season, Kansas City intercepted Brady twice on 41 attempts, while Patrick Mahomes avoided a turnover through the air on 49 attempts.
Tampa Bay might look to establish their run game early, but Brady will eventually air it out and when he does, we expect Kansas City to force a turnover via interception.
