Super Bowl Sacks Prop Odds, Predictions & Over Under Odds 2023
A sack doesn’t always have the same momentum-shifting impact as an interception or fumble recovery – but for any NFL defense, it can be the difference between the opposing team scoring, and the ball returning to the good guys' hands. Super Bowl sack prop bets have become a staple at all of the best sportsbooks, and they’re also one of the most popular Super Bowl prop bets available.
Most bettors spend more time studying the Super Bowl odds than focusing on secondary prop markets like sacks. But wins are wins in the betting world, no matter how you come by them – and there are plenty of markets for those who like defensive-minded prop bets.
The majority of notable sports betting sites have capitalized on the steadily growing popularity of Super Bowl sack odds, expanding beyond just one or two must-have markets and providing customers with plenty of selection.
Our Super Bowl picks don't include a play on how many sacks the Philadelphia Eagles or Kansas City Chiefs will record, but we're happy to help you conquer this popular Super Bowl prop bet.

Super Bowl sacks prop odds: Player to record most sacks
(Odds updated Saturday, Feb. 11 at 4:30 p.m. ET).
Most Super Bowl sacks pick: Chris Jones (+500 via FanDuel) ⭐⭐⭐
Eagles linebacker Hasson Reddick has the shortest odds at FanDuel to lead the game in sacks at +430. For a guy who should be facing double teams from an offensive line that allowed the third-fewest sacks in the league this season, I’m not a fan of that value.
Chris Jones, though, was nipping at the heels of Reddick and the other league leaders in total sacks on the season and faces an Eagles offensive line that allowed 44 sacks on the year (T-11th-most in the NFL). Jones broke through in his last game with 2.0 sacks of Cincinnati Bengals QB Joe Burrow after being shut out in the Divisional Round.
Eagles linemen Lane Johnson and Landon Dickerson have missed practices leading up to The Big Game. Though both are probably likely to participate on Sunday night, a banged-up offensive line could allow more opportunities for Jones to break through with more frequency to cash this prop.
Super Bowl sacks prop odds: Over/Under
Bettors will have three main Super Bowl sack prop totals at their disposal at the majority of sportsbooks: Each individual team's sack number, and then the combined sack tally.
Here's a look at the current team sack prop odds for Super Bowl 57 (odds courtesy DraftKings Sportsbook, FanDuel Sportsbook, Caesars and PointsBet):
|Total Game Sacks||O5.5 (+116) | U5.5 (-152)||O5.5 (+100) | U5.5 (-120)||O5.5 (+120) | U5.5 (-150)||O5.5 (+115) | U5.5 (-140)|
|Eagles Team Sacks||O2.5 (-150) | U2.5 (+120)||O2.5 (-140) | U2.5 (+115)||O3 (+145) | U3 (-175)||O2.5 (-165) | U2.5 (+125)|
|Chiefs Team Sacks||O3.5 (+176) | U3.5 (-225)||O2.5 (+110) | U2.5 (-135)||O2.5 (-145) | U2.5 (+115)||O2.5 (-135) | U2.5 (+105)|
(Odds updated Sunday, Feb. 12 at 5:15 p.m. ET).
Both teams have been sack masters so far in the postseason, with the Eagles leading the NFL with eight sacks through two playoff games and the Chiefs right behind them with seven.
That's an extension of how both teams fared during the regular season. Philadelphia set a team record with a whopping 70 sacks in 17 games – 15 more than runner-up Kansas City.
Given both teams' track records of success getting to enemy quarterbacks, don't be surprised to see the majority of bets land on the Over across the board.
Super Bowl sacks props odds: Most sacks/first sack odds
It isn't just about predicting whether both Super Bowl defenses will make life miserable for the opposing quarterbacks – it's which team will do it better.
Here's a breakdown of two additional Super Bowl sack prop markets that garner attention (odds courtesy DraftKings):
*Bettors can also take "Neither" at +2200.
DraftKings also provides odds on whether both teams will finish with at least one sack:
Only two teams in the past 12 Super Bowls have finished with zero sacks – so while it could happen, bettors will understand why the odds are so heavily skewed toward both teams finishing with at least one quarterback takedown.
PointsBet and Caesars also have markets available for which team will record the first sack of the game with the following odds:
|First Sack Prop||Eagles||Chiefs|
Super Bowl "to record a sack" odds
Super Bowl team sack props are fun and all, but there's something extra-special about targeting one specific defensive player and watching with glee as he sends the opposing QB sprawling.
Here's an overview of the odds on marquee defensive players from both sides to record a sack in Super Bowl 57 (odds courtesy FanDuel):
(Odds updated Saturday, Feb. 11 at 4:30 p.m. ET).
Caesars also has this market available, and here are the odds for each of the following players to register a sack or not:
DraftKings and PointsBet are also in on the action, though they've created Over/Under lines for notable player sacks as you'll see here:
|Haason Reddick||0.25 (O -165 | U +135)||0.75 (O -155 | U +120)|
|Chris Jones||0.75 (O -115 | U -115)||0.75 (O -115 | U -115)|
|Josh Sweat||0.75 (O +100 | U -130)||0.75 (O +115 | U -150)|
|Brandon Graham||0.75 (O +205 | U -255)||0.75 (O +190 | U -250)|
|George Karlaftis||0.75 (O +185 | U -230)||0.75 (O +180 | U -250)|
|Frank Clark||0.75 (O +130 | U -160)||0.75 (O +125 | U -165)|
(Odds updated Saturday, Feb. 12 at 5:15 p.m. ET).
Super Bowl "to record a sack" prop pick
Haason Reddick to record a sack: No (+120) ⭐⭐⭐
With 16.0 sacks during the regular season and 3.5 more in the playoffs, Reddick is one of the most dangerous pass-rushers in the league. After the high-profile sack of San Francisco 49ers QB Brock Purdy in the NFC Championship Game, we’ve seen significant movement on Reddick’s line to record a sack in the Super Bowl.
His FanDuel odds have moved from -115 all the way to -164, prompting us to take the other side of that bet. Mahomes’ limited mobility following an ankle injury could be a factor that contributes to Reddick’s ability to put him on his backside, but I actually don’t see it as an advantage for this prop.
Because of Mahomes’ injury, the Chiefs have had multiple weeks to prepare a game plan that should involve getting the ball out of the quarterback’s hands quickly. Reddick was matched up with a backup tight end on the play that shifted the NFCCG dramatically. The Chiefs won’t make that same mistake Sunday.
Player to record first sack odds
Similar to how sportsbooks divide markets into "anytime TDs" and "first TDs", DraftKings, FanDuel and PointsBet offer sports bettors a chance to predict who will have the first sack of Super Bowl 57:
(Odds updated Sunday, Feb. 12 at 5:30 p.m. ET).
You can also find odds on FanDuel for which player will record the opening Super Bowl 57 sack for his respective team; here's a look at the Eagles' odds:
|No Sack Recorded||+650|
And here's a breakdown of the top Chiefs first sack candidates:
|No Sack Recorded||+410|
(Odds updated Saturday, Feb. 12 at 5:30 p.m. ET).
Player to record team's first sack prop picks
George Karlaftis to record first Chiefs sack (+700) ⭐⭐⭐
Aside from the dominance of Jones along the Chiefs’ defensive front, it’s been George Karlaftis who has made the most significant impact as a pass rusher in Kansas City.
After racking up just 0.5 sacks over his first 10 NFL games, Karlaftis has come into his own down the stretch. The rookie out of Purdue tallied 5.5 sacks over his final seven regular-season games. He also picked up his first-career playoff sack when he dropped Burrow in the AFC Championship Game.
If Jones doesn’t strike first, I think Karlaftis could be the guy to break through. There have been only two games out of his last eight in which Karlaftis has failed to post at least a partial sack. With that level of consistency, Karlaftis is a screaming value at fourth on the odds list of Chiefs players to record the first sack of the Super Bowl for their team.
Other Super Bowl Sack props
FanDuel has added a handful of sack-focused props to its Game Specials menu; they're one-way markets, unfortunately, but there are some ambitious ones in here:
|Reddick Sack + Eagles Win||+190|
|Jones Sack + Chiefs Win||+240|
|Sweat Sack + Chiefs Win||+250|
|Clark Sack + Chiefs Win||+280|
|Chiefs to Record 5+ Sacks||+370|
|Dunlap Sack + Chiefs Win||+370|
|Eagles to Record 5+ Sacks||+550|
|Chiefs to Record 6+ Sacks||+900|
|Eagles to Record 6+ Sacks||+1400|
|Chiefs to Record 7+ Sacks||+2100|
|Eagles to Record 7+ Sacks||+3400|
BetMGM also has a market with individual head-to-head matchups for which player will record the most sacks during Super Bowl 57. Here’s a breakdown of the matchups and odds:
|Chris Jones (-278)||Javon Hargrave (+200)|
|Nick Bolton (+215)||Fletcher Cox (-303)|
|Willie Gay Jr. (-250)||T.J. Edwards (+180)|
|Justin Reid (+105)||T.J. Edwards (-143)|
|Chris Jones (-400)||Fletcher Cox (+275)|
|Frank Clark (-250)||Fletcher Cox (+175)|

|L’Jarius Sneed (-200)||T.J. Edwards (+150)|
What are Super Bowl sacks?
What is a sack? Simply put, it's a tackle made on a quarterback behind the line of scrimmage when the QB is still in possession of the football.
Sacks can occur either when the quarterback is stationary in the pocket, or when he's on the move. A player is not awarded a sack if he tackles a quarterback who is ruled to have been attempting a rush; in this case, the QB is given negative rush yards, but not a sack against.
(Little-known fact: Before they were coined "sacks" in the 1960s, they were referred to by the NFL stat office as "dumps". Do with that info what you will.)
