TAMPA, Fla. – With Super Bowl 55 just about to get underway, those that are planning on betting on it could begin looking at the different player props that are offered for the game.

Total Passing Yards – Patrick Mahomes
- Over 326.5 -130
- Under 326.5 Even
Going into the Super Bowl, some might think that because this is the Super Bowl, that taking the Over for Mahomes passing yard is a given, however, that is not the case.
In the seven playoff games Mahomes has played, he has only thrown for over 300 yards twice. This over could be rather hard to hit for Mahomes, though he did throw for 325 yards in his last game, the AFC Championship.
There are some cases though that do back up Mahomes hitting the Over like how he has gone over seven times this season which does include a 462-yard game against the Buccaneers.
Total Touchdown Passes – Patrick Mahomes
- Over 2.5 -150
- Under 2.5 +115
The over is favored when it comes to Mahomes Super Bowl prop bet for passing touchdowns.
He has passed for over 2.5 touchdowns in seven games this year including one playoff game.
Speaking of Mahomes playoff games, he has hit the Over in four of his last six playoff games. Also, in those last six playoff games, he has thrown for 17 total touchdowns.
Total Passing Completions – Patrick Mahomes
- Over 28 -120
- Under 28 -110
As for the NFL odds for the total completions that Mahomes throws for, although the Over is favored, it is the Under where money can absolutely be found.
Looking back at how Mahomes has done during the regular season and these playoffs, he has only gone Over a total of six times.
As for how he has done in the playoffs during his career, he averages 23.5 completions and has only hit the Over one time which was in the AFC Championship where he had 29.
Total Passing Attempts – Patrick Mahomes
- Over 40.5 -145
- Under 40.5 +110
Patrick Mahomes passing attempt total is set right where it needs to be as he has hit the Over mark in seven of his last eight regular-season games.
However, in the playoffs has been a different scenario as he has only hit the Over in two of seven games. With Mahomes throwing the ball more often than not to close the season though, it might be wise to take the Over here.
Total Interceptions Thrown – Patrick Mahomes
- Over 0.5 +125
- Under 0.5 -165
Patrick Mahomes has been very efficient when it comes to how he has played in the playoffs. In the seven playoff games that he has played, Mahomes has thrown for just two interceptions, however, they did both come in the Super Bowl last year.
Also backing up the under is that Mahomes has thrown for just six interceptions this season which is tied for the fifth-fewest in the league.
All in all, based on his recent playoff performance, the stars are not aligning for Mahomes to throw for Over 326.5 yards but do look good when it comes to him throwing over 2.5 touchdowns.
As for his completions, being that his average in the playoffs is way lower than the total, the Under could be the more profitable bet to make. With over 40 attempts in seven of his last eight games, there could be profit here as well.
