Just two teams remain in contention to hoist the Super Bowl trophy. The Kansas City Chiefs face the Philadelphia Eagles in Super Bowl 57 on Sunday. After blowing through their competition in the NFC, the Eagles are slight favorites over Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs with kickoff one day away.

There is a variety of Super Bowl rushing props being offered by sportsbooks across the country. If you’re uncertain who to bet on to win the game, consider betting on rushing props for the big game on Sunday.

Sportsbooks are expecting more bets and money on the Super Bowl this year than any previous year, with states like Ohio and Massachusetts recently launching sports betting. Spread, moneyline, and totals are the most popular way to bet on the Super Bowl, but prop bets are becoming increasingly more common among bettors.

Keep in mind, betting lines shift ahead of kickoff, so if the odds you’re seeing have moved from the ones listed here, the value may have been eroded.

Super Bowl 57: Best Rushing Props to Bet

The quarterbacks take center stage Sunday — as they always tend to do — but there’s more to bet than just their passing totals. Although fans may expect — or simply want — star quarterbacks Hurts and Mahomes to air it out, consider one of these rushing prop bets instead.

Jalen Hurts, Over 48.5 Rushing Yards

The Eagles’ star quarterback was an MVP frontrunner before a shoulder injury late in the season sidelined him for a couple of games. Hurts has been dangerous with his legs this season and in the biggest game of his career, expect him to utilize his feet once again.

Hurts failed to reach this total in either of the team’s playoff games this year, but with such dominant leads, the quarterback wasn’t put in many positions to test his legs. During the regular season when Hurts had to rely on his legs, he’s been incredibly effective, including a 157-yard performance on the ground against the Green Bay Packers.

Kansas City has surrendered the fifth-most rushing yards per game to quarterbacks this season. Burrow and Lawrence (neither of whom are at the same level of dual-threat ability as Hurts) rushed for 30 and 26 yards, respectively, against the Chiefs’ defense this postseason.

Patrick Mahomes, Over 18.5 Rushing Yards

There are concerns about Mahomes’ mobility stemming from an ankle injury suffered early in the playoffs. That concern is why the total is set relatively low for the NFL’s presumptive MVP. With two weeks of additional rest, there’s a chance his injury isn’t as big of a concern as expected — which would offer great value on his rushing prop.

Mahomes has rushed for more than 18.5 yards in ten of his 17 regular season games this year. Even with his mobility hampered, Mahomes wasn’t afraid to use his legs in the AFC championship. A key first-down scramble by the quarterback on the final drive — coupled with a late hit out of bounds — put the Chiefs in position to kick the go-ahead field goal.

The Eagles’ defensive front generated more sacks than any other team this year and fell just two shy of the NFL’s regular-season sack record. With pressure in his face, Mahomes may have no option but to scramble in key positions. Set relatively low, this is one of the best Super Bowl rushing props to bet on.

Isaiah Pacheco, Over 66.5 Scrimmage Yards

This favorite Super Bowl prop bet of ours isn’t strictly rushing yards, but is a bet on the combined total of rushing and receiving yards tallied by Chiefs running back Isaiah Pacheco. The seventh-round rookie has shot up the Chiefs’ depth chart and will figure prominently in the offensive game plan.

Pachecho is a favorite in the Chiefs’ backfield because of his explosive ability in both the rushing and passing game. The running back has out-carried Jerick McKinnon in the playoffs and saw a season-high 57% of snaps in the conference title game.

The Chiefs’ running back has totaled 121 yards on the ground this postseason, including a 95-yard day against the Jaguars. He’s also logged six catches on seven targets for 65 yards. Expect Pachecho to see the ball early and often, making his scrimmage yards prop one of the best Super Bowl 57 bets to make.

Chiefs vs. Eagles: Super Bowl Info

Both the Philadelphia Eagles and Kansas City Chiefs entered the postseason with among the shortest odds to represent their conference in Super Bowl 57. The two No. 1 seeds both had a bye during the opening round of the playoffs.

Kansas City came off their bye and faced the Jacksonville Jaguars in the divisional round. The Jags gave some fight late, but the Chiefs ultimately went on to win 27-20. In the AFC conference championship, it was a rematch of last year’s title game. The Chiefs, not without controversy, however, edged out the Cincinnati Bengals, 23-20.

Philadelphia’s path to Arizona looked a bit easier. Quarterback Jalen Hurts and the high-flying Eagles blew past the New York Giants in the second round, defeating their divisional rival 38-7. They faced a San Francisco 49ers team in the NFC championship that lost their starting quarterback early in the game. The Eagles went on to win 31-7.

Kansas City is competing in its third Super Bowl in four seasons. The Eagles are looking for their second Lombardi Trophy after winning it all in 2018.

Here’s details about the big game.

  • Date: Sunday, Feb. 12, 2023
  • Kickoff: 6:30 p.m. ET
  • Venue: State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona
