The Super Bowl is set for this Sunday, meaning now is the time to get your prop bets in. With both teams featuring rosters filled with playmakers, there are a lot of fantastic bets to choose from.

Below, we are sharing the three players we like to score a touchdown in Sunday’s big games. We’ll share each player’s odds and the latest insights to help you bet confidently at Super Bowl betting sites.

Travis Kelce – TE Kansas City Chiefs

Travis Kelce had one of his worst seasons in 2023, but he has looked like his old self through three playoff games. The big pass catcher has 262 yards and three touchdowns in the playoffs. That includes the 116 yards and touchdown he posted against an elite Ravens pass defense.

Few defenses can contain the Mahomes-Kelce combination when its working as well as it has been in the playoffs. The Niners defense is good, but they have had issues against the pass, finishing fourteenth in the league in passing yards per game (214.2 YPG). They were beaten up by both Jordan Love and Jared Goff, causing both games to be close.

Kelce is once again playing at a legendary level, and the Chiefs will rely heavily on him.

Deebo Samuel – WR San Francisco 49ers 

Odds to score Super Bowl TD: +175 at BetMGM Sportsbook

The Chiefs defense will make their top priority containing Christian McCaffrey, opening up room for the team’s other playmakers to work. That will include Samuel, who brings a unique skillset into Sunday’s Super Bowl.

The Chiefs pass defense was one of the best in the league during the regular season, but Samuel is far more than a pass catcher. The 28-year-old is an excellent rusher who can break big plays off of screens or short crossing routes. As good as the Chiefs are against the pass, they were eighteenth in the league against the run (113.2 YPG).

The Chiefs struggles against the run also means they will need to overcompensate to stop McCaffrey. That will open up the passing game, especially for receiver screens. 

While Deebo hasn’t scored in the playoffs, he was also limited by injury. The receiver finished the season scoring nine touchdowns across the final seven games of the season.

Rashee Rice – WR Kansas City Chiefs 

Odds to score Super Bowl TD: +123 at BetRivers Sportsbook

Rice is a big reason why the Chiefs find themselves in the Super Bowl once again. The offense struggled through much of the season thanks to an awful receiving corp. The veterans were dropping passes, and it was costing the team games. Kansas City’s struggles allowed defenses to key in on Travis Kelce, further hurting the team’s ability to score. 

Those offensive struggles have subsided now thanks to the emergence of rookie Rashee Rice. He took over the role as the team’s top wide receiver, finishing with 938 yards and seven touchdowns. He has been a reliable target for Mahomes and will play a major role against a Niners pass defense that has been struggling.

While Rice has just one touchdown in the playoffs so far, he has faced two great pass defenses in a row in the Ravens and Bills. The rookie wideout will have an easier path against the Niners, and we expect him to respond with a big day that includes a touchdown.
