Best bets for Emmanuel Sanders Super Bowl 54 props

We break down the Super Bowl 54 prop bets we like most for 49ers wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders on Sunday.

One way to get some skin in the game during the Super Bowl is betting on some individual player props. In this scenario, we don’t really care who wins and loses, we just want the player performance to beat out with the DraftKings Sportsbook has laid out. In this piece, we’ll go over some of those bets to consider for Emmanuel Sanders as the San Francisco 49ers prepare to face the Kansas City Chiefs in Super Bowl 54..

Total receiving yards OVER 40.5 -112

Since joining the 49ers, this has been a tough total for Sanders to hit the over on. In fact, since joining the team in Week 8, Sanders hit the over on this total only four times in 12 games. However, Sanders should serve a more pivotal role than he’s played as of late. The Chiefs secondary is a tough one to crack but he’ll draw the best matchup of the group against CB Charvarius Ward. In coverage, Ward has allowed just a 48.5% catch rate on 97 targets. However, when he has allowed a reception, they’ve gone for an average of 16.4 YPR. So while this is far from an ideal matchup, Sanders has the opportunity to gain some healthy yards if he can bring down a couple of catches against Ward.

Both players to score at least one touchdown (Travis Kelce & Sanders) +565

These types of props are quite interesting. If both players score a touchdown, you’ll be looking at quite the nice payday ahead of you at +565 odds. Kelce feels like a no-brainer since he enters this game with a team-leading 30% red zone target share on the Chiefs. Sanders is where it gets tough as he draws only a 6% red zone target share. Since coming over to the 49ers, Sanders has three of his six touchdowns on the season but has not reached the end zone since Week 14 against the Saints, a drought of five games. However, with such a high scoring game being projected, I have no problem pairing Sanders with someone like Kelce, who has been such a huge presence for the Chiefs in the red zone. If the 49ers are playing from behind, as the spread indicates, it should lead to more opportunities for Jimmy Garoppolo to throw the ball and thus, more red zone chances for Sanders. A couple of other combinations I’d also consider would be Sanders with George Kittle (+900) and Sanders with Damien Williams (+475).

Total Yards of Longest Reception OVER 17.5 -112

As I mentioned earlier, Ward has allowed an average of 16.4 YPR when opposing receivers have been able to catch something against him. Sanders has hovered around this number all season long while hitting the over on this number eight times. In a game where I expect the Niners to be more active in the passing game, this feels like an over we can take with confidence. When Sanders does get the ball, he’s averaging 47.5 yards per game and has snapped off some really deep shots as well. His season-long currently sits at 75 yards, which came in Week 14 against the Saints. Overall, he’s gone 30+ yards five times this season, which wouldn’t even need to be necessary to hit the over on this total. This number could easily be higher if the Niners were calling for more passing plays but with the lack of opportunities as of late, I like this at a really good buy-low spot.
