Not often do we get to bet and compare what Cristiano Ronaldo and Real Madrid from Spain’s La Liga does in a competition with Mohamed Sanu and the NFL’s Atlanta Falcons, but that’s what we have Sunday with these cross-sport Super Bowl 51 props bets.
One unique niche of the Super Bowl is the menu of Cross-Sports props bets and popular sportsbook Bovada and the Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook here in Sin City offer some of the best in this market for Super Bowl 51.
Falcons Sacks -175 vs. Alex Ovechkin Points +135
Alex Ovechkin and the Washington Capitals face G Peter Budaj and the Los Angeles Kings at the Verizon Center. Ovechkin is averaging less than 1 point a game (0.92 ppg) heading into Tuesday’s skate against the Islanders and Los Angeles #5 in the NHL.
The lean is to NFL sack-leader Vic Beasley (15.5 sacks) and the Falcons total sacks here, with a possible 2-1 or 3-1 result. Remember, Tom Brady (Sacked 15 times) isn’t the most nimble-footed QB.
Free Pick: Falcons Sacks -175Best Line Offered: at Bovada
Brady Yards First Completion vs. Total Beanpot Goals
The L10 Beanpot tournaments in Boston have averaged 11.9 gpd—with a range of 8 to 15 goals scored—on Mondays with showdowns between Boston College, Harvard (BC 3-2), Boston University and Northeastern (BU 3-1) seeing 9 goals scored at TD Garden that day last year. So, a first Brady completion under 10 yards likely loses here while reception of 12+ yards will likely cash. Eventually.

Julio Jones Receiving Yards vs. Boston Celtics Points
Future Hall of Famer Jones—who had 67 receiving yards against the Seahawks but 180 yards in the NFC Championship vs. the Packers—will probably be targeted frequently by QB Ryan as he’s the go-to, sure-hands guy. The Boston Celtics (108.2 ppg) host the Los Angeles Clippers earlier Sunday (ABC, 2 p.m. EST). My guess here: Jones 111, Celtics 103.
Free Pick: Julio Jones Receiving Yards +110Best Line Offered: at Bovada
Sanu Receptions -½ vs. Real Madrid + Celta Vigo Goals +½
Atlanta WR Mohamed Sanu’s total receptions are at 4½ at Bovada (Over, Even) and with the high-flying Falcons expected to throw much, Rutgers-product Sanu should have at least 5 catches. And with CR7 and Real Madrid playing uninspired soccer of late scoring just 9 goals in L5 matches, we are confident Sanu receptions will be higher in this case.
