Super Bowl 53 Props and Odds
It has been an interesting season for Rams quarterback Jared Goff. He began the year like gangbusters, getting mentioned alongside Patrick Mahomes and Drew Brees as the league MVP halfway through the season.
However, he then started throwing some interceptions and then watched as his touchdown pass production plummeted. The Rams boast a talented pair of running backs in Todd Gurley and C.J. Anderson, and it’s possible Los Angeles rides them in the Super Bowl.
Then again, the passing game is what got Los Angeles to this point, and Goff looked impressive in the second half of the NFC Championship game against the Saints. The over/under for passing yards for Goff in the Super Bowl is listed at 278.5.
That number looks low, and the public agrees as the vig on this wager is set at -126 for the “over” to hit. Even though it is the slight favorite, that is the right choice.
Goff has only thrown for more than 278.5 yards in two of his past seven games so it doesn’t seem like the best bet off-hand. However, consider the scenario the Rams could be in.
The Patriots are the slight favorites and have an explosive offense themselves. If this one becomes a shootout, Goff will need to have a big game in order for the Rams to keep up. Additionally, even if Los Angeles falls behind, Goff will need to throw a lot. Even if Los Angeles loses, chances are good the passing yards will be racked up during the comeback attempt.
Super Bowl 53 Prop Pick
Our pick: Jared Goff “over” 278.5 passing yards in the Super Bowl
Reason: Last year’s Super Bowl was a shootout. Even though this one might not have as many points, it could still be an offense-heavy affair. The Rams have a great coach in Sean McVay who has two weeks to game plan a way to beat the Patriots. He is an offensive mastermind and should be able to put Goff in a position to succeed.
The total passing yardage for Goff is too low in this one. The public is on the right track as Goff should be able to surpass 278 yards in the Super Bowl. Much of this could be game script so those backing Goff should actually root for the Patriots to get out ahead.
