Super Bowl player prop odds

Super Bowl 58 will provide sports bettors with plenty of opportunities to wager on the most notable players in the game – but you'll need to be patient, since the overwhelming majority of Super Bowl player props aren't available until the Big Game matchup is set.

What are player prop bets?

A Super Bowl player prop bet is a wager you make on an outcome of an event involving a specific player – but isn't tied to the actual game outcome. For example, you can bet on Patrick Mahomes to throw more than two touchdowns, even though it has no bearing on whether or not the Kansas City Chiefs win the game.

Touchdown props

Super Bowl touchdown props are among the most popular of any wager type for the Big Game (likely due to their simplicity). You can bet on a player to score a touchdown at any point in the game, or you can take a slightly larger risk and handicap whether that player scores the first or last touchdown of the Super Bowl.

Passing props

Quarterbacks get plenty of betting attention at the Super Bowl, so it's no surprise that most of the marquee sports betting sites have several markets devoted to the QBs. Passing yardage props are most notable, but you can also bet on whether a quarterback will finish above or below his touchdown pass or interception numbers.

Rushing props

You probably won't have as many Super Bowl rushing props available as you will passing props, but there's still a nice selection here. Here, you can wager on your running back of choice to go over or under his rush attempts or rush yards total; other options include the length in yards of the player's longest run, and how many combined rushing and receiving yards he'll have.

Receiving props

Wide receivers are a quarterback's best friend (next to offensive linemen, of course) – and as you might expect, they have their own ample Super Bowl player prop markets for your to peruse. You can bet on whether a wide receiver will surpass or fall short of his receptions or receiving yards line, or on the length of his longest reception in yards, among others.  

Kicking props

Despite what some fantasy football players might say, kickers are people, too! And yes, they have their own Super Bowl player prop markets, though these are far scarcer than other more high-profile positions. Primarily, you can wager on whether a kicker will go over or under his field goal total, the length of his longest field goal, and whether or not he will miss one.

Defensive props

The Super Bowl involves more than just accurate passes, powerful runs, and impressive catches. Strong defense can be the deciding factor between winning the NFL championship or facing a disappointing journey back home. Leading sports betting platforms emphasize the significance of paying attention to defensive plays for bettors. Bettors have the option to place bets on whether defensive players will exceed or fall short of their tackle or sack targets.

Live betting player props

Super Bowl live betting is one of the most popular wagering markets in the U.S. – and bettors can anticipate more live betting markets than ever before at Super Bowl 58. Live player prop markets will be among the hottest options available, and some sports betting sites will even offer microbetting opportunities like predicting whether the next play will be a run or pass.

Exotic player props

Any Super Bowl player prop market that hasn't been mentioned earlier is probably included in this category. The Super Bowl offers some unique and imaginative player prop betting options. For example, you might bet on whether a player's rushing attempts will be more than a specific NBA player's points in a game on the same day, or if a kicker will hit the upright during a field goal or PAT attempt.
