Patrick Mahomes Over 290.5 passing yards (-120) ⭐⭐⭐

Philadelphia has allowed only one quarterback (Dak Prescott) to throw for 300-plus yards this season, but Mahomes is on a different level than who the Eagles are accustomed to facing. Mahomes is the only quarterback in the league to rank in the top three in QBR vs. both man and zone coverage (per NFL Next Gen Stats). In addition, much has been made of Philadelphia's defensive pressure (it already ranks in the top three all-time in sacks for a single season), but Mahomes is as solid as they come when facing pressure. When under duress this season (including the playoffs), Mahomes ranks second in QBR, first in sack percentage, and second in yards per dropback. 

This line is up slightly from 287.5 earlier in the week, so we are not making this a four or five-star play as some of the value is gone, but we are still getting a much better number at PointsBet compared to the 295.5 found at DraftKings.

Patrick Mahomes -0.5 passing touchdowns H2H with Jalen Hurts (-120) ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

To clarify, this bet would cash if Mahomes ends up with more passing touchdowns than Hurts. The -110 odds seem favorable given that the O/U of 1.5 on Hurts' passing touchdowns is juiced to the Under (-125), while Mahomes' O/U of 1.5 is heavily juiced to the Over at -215. 

Entering the AFC Championship Game, Mahomes ranked first among all quarterbacks on throws inside the pocket in QBR (73), passing touchdowns (35), and first down percentage (42%). This hurt the Cincinnati Bengals, against whom he accumulated 80% of his passing yards from inside the pocket. 

Compared to Hurts, Mahomes has averaged more passing yards per attempt (8.0 to 7.8), totaled more touchdowns (49 to 39), and has a higher passer rating (105.5 to 100.6). With Mahomes also having plenty of Super Bowl experience that Hurts does not have, and with the Eagles being committed to the running game, we expect this bet to cash easily as a solid five-star play.

Patrick Mahomes to win Super Bowl MVP (+130) ⭐⭐⭐

The Chiefs are +105 moneyline underdogs according to the Super Bowl odds, so we are getting decent value for Mahomes to win Super Bowl MVP (compared to slightly worse +125 odds at DraftKings) if Kansas City is the winning side.

Mahomes ranks in the top four among all quarterbacks with at least 400 pass attempts this season in passing yards per attempt (8.0), touchdowns-to-giveaways (49-13), and passer rating (105.5); and the Chiefs are 16-3 entering Super Bowl 57. In two career games against the league's No. 1 pass defense (which the Eagles are this year), Mahomes is 2-0, his team has averaged 36.5 points per game, and he has averaged 332.0 passing yards while throwing five touchdowns to two interceptions. 

In what essentially amounts to a coin-flip game, we love the plus odds on this prop bets for Mahomes, as he will play a significant role if the Chiefs went on to the upset victory.
