If these cross-sport props are a little too inside-baseball for you (so to speak) consider checking brushing up on what is a TD prop bet. My favorite in the table above is the first on the list.

Celtics Will Outscore Kansas City Rushing Yards

At 2:00 pm ET on Super Bowl Sunday, the NBA-leading Boston Celtics visit the Miami Heat in South Beach. The Celtics are averaging just over 120 points per game, while Miami – which has one of the league’s better defenses – is surrendering just 110.8 while playing at the fourth-slowest pace in the league. When Boston’s team total opens on Saturday night, it’s likely going to be about 115.5 over/under.

Kansas City’s ground game was able to have its way with Miami and Buffalo in the first two games of the postseason (over 140 yards in each), but it came back to earth against Baltimore in the AFC Championship Game. The Chiefs finished with just 86 rushing yards during the 17-10 win, which was more in line with their season average of 104.9 rushing yards per game.

Against the 49ers defense, it’s safer to expect another result like the Baltimore game. San Francisco surrendered just 89.7 rushing yards per game during the regular season. Yes, they were absolutely scorched by Detroit in the NFC title game to the tune of 260 rushing yards, but that was an anomaly. This remains one of the best defenses in the league (fourth in DVOA and tenth against the run according to PFF) and,

Take the Over on Jersey Number of First TD Scorer

The over/under on the jersey number of the first touchdown scorer in the game has been set at just 22.5, with the over ever-so-slightly favored. In my opinion, it should be favored by a bit more. The over here gets you Christian McCaffrey (the co-league leader in TDs during the regular season), Travis Kelce (three in the past two games),  George Kittel, Noah Gray, Elijah Mitchell, and Kyle Juszczyk, among others. Basically, you’re getting every member of the 49er backfield (plus Kittel) and the best of the KC receiving corps.

The principal threats to cash for the under are Isiah Pacheco (nine TDs), Deebo Samuel (seven TDs), and Brandon Aiyuk (seven TDs).  McCaffrey (21) had nearly as many touchdowns as those three combined (23) in the regular season. Kelce’s subpar regular season, in which he recorded just five majors, is ancient history now. With a pair of touchdown grabs against the Ravens, he now has 19 TD catches in just 21 career playoff games, including 17 TDs in just 15 postseason games over the past five years.

Longest Drive Under 77.5 Yards

In five postseason games between them, the 49ers and Chiefs only have two drives longer than 77.5 yards. (KC’s first drive against Baltimore went for 86 yards, while the Niners had an 86-yard drive against Green Bay.) With touchbacks on kickoffs moved out to the 25, the opportunity for 78-plus-yard drives are just not a plentiful as they used to be.

And if these teams are pinned inside the 20, it’s going to be tough sledding moving all the way down the field against the opposing defense.  I’ve already touched on how good the San Francisco defense is, but the Chiefs are no slouch and have been playing their best football of the season in the playoffs. Kansas City allowed just 322 yards per game, on average, against Miami, Buffalo, and Baltimore, all of whom have top-six offenses in terms of DVOA. Brock Purdy’s up-and-down play of late doesn’t inspire confidence he’ll be able to mount 80-yard drives against this KC unit.
