Eagles Super Bowl LVII predictions: Jalen Hurts, A.J. Brown props, plus more

Jalen Hurts props: Over 289.5 passing + rushing yards (-114 or better)

Thanks to the game script, Hurts has put up a modest 275 passing yards on a combined 49 attempts in postseason wins over the Giants and 49ers thus far.

The mobile quarterback gained 63 yards and recorded a pair of rushing TDs on 20 attempts in those games as well.

But he’ll likely be carrying out a much more aggressive approach in Super Bowl LVII, considering both the stakes and the firepower of the opposing offense.

Hurts averaged 297.4 passing + rushing yards over 15 regular-season games. while the Chiefs surrendered 269.5 passing + rushing yards per game to quarterbacks.

That said, the one comparable dual-threat QB that Kansas City faced with all his weapons was the Bills’ Josh Allen, who touched them up for 361 total yards.

A.J. Brown props: 1st Half TD scorer (+320 or better)

We’ve been waiting on Brown to rediscover the end zone since Week 17, as an unusual three-game drought that represents his longest since the start of the regular season.

Still, It’s not difficult to envision the star wideout crossing the goal line at least once against the Chiefs.

The Chiefs allowed 20 receiving touchdowns to wideouts during the regular season (T-most in AFC) and an NFL-leading 27 red-zone passing TDs overall.

DeVonta Smith props: Longest reception Over 22.5 yards (-120 or better)

Smith recorded a 29-yard grab in the NFC Championship game (albeit controversial) and he also posted a 40-yard reception in the divisional-round victory against the Giants.

Furthermore, Smith posted 18 catches of 20+ yards during the regular season, including four of 40 or more.

The Chiefs gave up just 11.4 yards per grab to wideouts during the regular season but did allow four completions of 23 yards or more against the Bengals and another versus Jacksonville.

Eagles team props: Eagles to record more interceptions (-134 or better)

The Eagles averaged an interception per game during the regular season, tying for third league-wide.

Meanwhile, the Chiefs corralled a much more modest 11 and Hurts threw only six across a career-high 460 pass attempts.

Conversely, Patrick Mahomes doubled up Hurts’ regular-season INT total with 12, and his 16.5% bad pass rate comfortably outpaced Hurts’ 13.0% figure.

Finally, consider the Chiefs’ top 10 pass play rate since the start of the regular season (61.9%), while Philadelphia is at the opposite end with a No. 29-ranked 49.96% figure.

With Mahomes likely to put the ball up more than Hurts, the chances of the Eagles notching more INTs is even stronger.

Super Bowl SGP picks: Eagles ML and Jalen Hurts Anytime TD (+223 or better)

The Eagles will likely have a healthier Super Bowl squad overall, considering three Chiefs wideouts suffered in-game injuries during the AFC title game.

Philadelphia also arguably has the stouter defense and an exponentially better wide receiver duo, so we can see the favorites coming out on top.

Then, Hurts scored a career-high 13 rushing TDs during the regular season and has added one apiece in each of the first two postseason contests.

The Chiefs also tied for the fifth-most rushing TDs given up to quarterbacks in the regular season (4).

While it’s a long shot and there’s an entirely different coaching staff/system in place, there’s always the non-zero possibility that Nick Sirianni digs into Eagles Super Bowl lore and fir his own “Philly Special” given Hurts’ athleticism.
