Everyone knows the Chiefs’ offense runs through Travis Kelce and Isiah Pacheco, but Marquez Valdes-Scantling could be the x-factor the Chiefs need to defend their title. He’s already come up with some big catches this postseason and our NFL betting picks expect MVS to come through in the clutch once again.
Has Marquez Valdes-Scantling regained the trust of Patrick Mahomes and Andy Ried?
After going through periods during the regular season where he was either non-existent or very existent for all the wrong reasons such as dropping a game-winning catch vs the Eagles, MVS appears to be back in the good graces of Kansas City’s offense. Given the current Super Bowl odds, the timing could not be better.
Like for every other player in this game, there’s an avalanche of betting opportunities for Marquez Valdes-Scantling odds, so let’s explore the best Super Bowl player props for him and then tie it into a same-game parlay.

Marquez Valdes-Scantling Super Bowl prop pick
Over 19.5 receiving yards (-110)
Marquez Valdes-Scantling has come up big the few times he’s had his number called in each of the past two playoff games, catching four balls on six targets for exactly 100 yards. The bulk of these yards came on two catches as he had a 32-yard reception vs both the Bills and Ravens.
As a result of the bounce back he’s had in recent weeks and his big play ability, I think Patrick Mahomes will look his way more often on Sunday against the San Francisco 49ers and he’ll go Over his modest receiving yard total of 19.5 yards at -110 over at FanDuel.
Helping matters is that the 49ers haven’t been especially strong against the pass during the playoffs. Jared Goff, in particular, was easily able to spread the ball around against them as five different Lions’ pass catchers had at least 20 yards.
Prop: Valdes-Scantling Over 19.5 receiving yards (-110 at FanDuel)

Marquez Valdes-Scantling Super Bowl same-game parlay
Marquez Valdes-Scantling Over 19.5 receiving yards
Patrick Mahomes 225+ passing yards
I like the Kansas City Chiefs to win for a variety of reasons. The simple reasons are that they have the better quarterback, the better big-game head coach, the better defense, and they enter this game in much better form than the 49ers who caught a lot of breaks against the Packers and Lions.
To big up that W, they’ll obviously need a good game out of Patrick Mahomes and I think he’ll throw for at least 225 yards. This is something he’s done in 14 of 19 games this season, including in six of his last seven games.
San Francisco wasn’t good in pass defense against the Lions in the NFC title game. They allowed 273 passing yards to Jared Goff but it really should have been a lot more if it wasn’t for a handful of drops and Goff missing a few wide-open pass catchers.
