The San Francisco 49ers continue their march toward a championship but will have to get through QB Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs first. The 49ers have used a balanced approach to offense for most of the season, but have put an emphasis on the run game in the playoffs. San Fran hasn’t needed to throw the ball much by using the “Ground and Pound” strategy against the Minnesota Vikings and Green Bay Packers.
Because of this, Kittle has had a quiet 2019 postseason. He’s got a combined four receptions for 35 yards in two games. Granted, in the NFC Championship, the Niners didn’t need to throw the ball because Raheem Mostert was unstoppable. Still, we haven’t seen a big game from Kittle. Will Sunday night in SB54 be the time for Kittle to shine? With rumors floating around about contract negotiations, it’d be in Kittle’s best interesting to have a big game.
Super Bowl 54 fourth quarter recap
Kittle notched two receptions in the fourth quarter. One was a 12-yard reception while the other was an eight yard connection. Kittle fell short on a large portion of his prop bets and underperformed in the contest as far as the passing game goes. He didn’t appear to be a priority in the offense, and his final stat line shows that.
Super Bowl 54 third quarter recap
Making one more reception gave Kittle two catches for 16 yards on the night. San Francisco is up and should look to run clock, so it’s not likely that Kittle will be much more productive. The only prop bets worth monitoring are whether he scores at all (+110) or scores last touchdown (+900).
Super Bowl 54 second quarter recap
Kittle wasn’t a factor in the passing game in the second quarter. He finished the first half with one reception for 11 yards. He nearly made a big catch in the closing seconds of the half but was called for offensive pass interference. He’ll have to be much more productive on the back end to hit more prop bets.
Super Bowl 54 first quarter recap
Kittle hit two of his prop bets on his first catch. He recorded the 49ers’ first reception (+250) and also hit the over on total yards for his first reception (10.5). Kittle notched a first down with an 11 yard reception and appears poised to come on strong after underwhelming performances in the Divisional Round and NFC title game. He fell short of his first quarter receiving yards prop (16.5).
