Miles Sanders was looking forward to moving to the top of the Penn State running back depth chart the last time the Philadelphia Eagles made the Super Bowl. This time, he’s the lead running back for the Eagles, who are favored to win Super Bowl 57. How well he plays could be one of the keys to a Philadelphia victory and something you can bet on.

Sportsbooks offer an extensive menu of prop bets for the big game, including several featuring the Eagles’ running back. But before we dive into some Miles Sanders Super Bowl props, let’s take a look at the line for Super Bowl 57.

Rushing Yards: Over 55.5 (-110 PointsBet), Under 59.5 (-127 BetRivers)

The Over looks like the way to go when you look at his body of work throughout the season. Sanders is the lead back in the Philly run game, led the team with 1,269 yards during the regular season, and ran for 55.5+ yards in 11 of 17 regular season games. Factor in the Chiefs’ lackluster run defense (107+ yards per game and 4.4 yards per carry allowed), and it does look like the Over is the way to go.

The Eagles are a run-first team, but Sanders is only getting about a quarter of the touches when they do (10-15 in 11 games; ran for less than 59 yards in eight). So far, in the playoffs, he’s gotten just two more carries than Kenneth Gainwell (28 to 26).

Take the Over if you think he’ll get 15+ carries in the game. Against the Kansas City defense, he should be able to get at least 60 yards with 15+ carries. But if you are not convinced he’ll get that many, go with the Under.

Our Pick: Under 59.5

Receiving Yards: Over 4.5 (-109 BetRivers), Under 10.5 (-190 PointsBet)

The Chiefs allowed the fourth-most yards to running backs in the passing game this season (112 receptions for 806 yards). So, if the Eagles throw him one or two, there is a solid chance he could find a seam and go for 10+ yards in one catch.

But the Eagles have targeted a running back in the passing game just 61 times this season; Sanders accounted for 26 targets, catching 20 for 78 yards. So, while it may be easier to find success in the passing game for running backs versus the Chiefs, don’t bank on the Eagles doing so.

Our Pick: Under 10.5

Receptions: Over 1.5 (+165 PointsBet), Under 1.5 (-185 DraftKings)

Sanders has had no receptions or one reception in his last seven games. Of the 19 games he’s played this season, he’s had 2+ in just six (the last time was on Dec. 4 versus Tennessee). The last time he got targeted more than once was back in Week 14 when he was targeted three times (catching one).

Don’t count on that changing for the Super Bowl.

Our Pick: Under 1.5

Rush and Receiving Yards: Over 63.5 (-113 BetRivers), Under 67.5 (-115 DraftKings)

Sanders could go for over 63.5 yards in the run game alone; he did in nine of 17 regular season games. He is not a big enough part of the passing game to trust that he can make up the difference with receiving yards (20 receptions during the regular season; one in the playoffs).

Our Pick: Under 67.5

Rush attempts: Over 12.5 (-105 PointsBet), Under 13.5 (-125 DraftKings)

Sanders averaged 15.2 carries a game during the regular season and had 17 and 11 in Philadelphia’s two playoff games. He had at least 13 carries in 11 regular season games but had 13+ in five of the last 11. Running the ball will help keep Patrick Mahomes off the field, but it may be asking too much to expect more than 13 carries.

Our Pick: Under 13.5

Longest Rush: Over 13.5 (-114 BetRivers), Under 13.5 (+102 FanDuel)

Sanders had a run of 13.5+ yards in eight regular season games and one of two playoff games. Against a questionable Chiefs run defense that allowed 47 runs of 10+ yards in the regular season and three in the playoffs, it is easy to see him breaking one free for a nice gain. But since it is hard to say how many carries he’ll get, the Under may be the better play here.

Our Pick: Under 13.5
