In today’s times, you can bet on just about everything when it comes to the league’s annual Super Bowl title tilt.
In addition to the ever-popular, ‘coin flip’ bet, you can bet on things like the outfits that halftime performers may potentially wear, the winning margin, total sacks in the game and a multitude of other fun-filled wagers.
However, there may be no better way to make a nearly guaranteed winning Super Bowl wager than by placing a wager on the stupendous 2014 Super Bowl player props odds that surround the league’s annual championship matchup.
Having said that, I am giving you a simple route toward making a series of winning wagers by simply making these easy to win Super Bowl 48 bets.
With game day quickly approaching, let’s get started.
2014’s Easy To Win Super Bowl Bets
Russell Wilson vs. Peyton Manning Touchdown Passes
- Russell Wilson +1/2 TD Pass +120
- Peyton Manning -1/2 TD Pass -150
Analysis: Manning threw an NFL record 55 touchdown passes during the regular season to Russell Wilson’s 26 TD passes (9th). Manning has also thrown two touchdown passes in each of Denver’s two playoff games this postseason while Wilson failed to throw one against New Orleans and tossed just one against San Francisco in the NFC title game. It’s almost a virtual lock that Peyton Manning wins this player props odds matchup.
The Pick: Peyton Manning -1/2 TD Pass
Peyton Manning Longest Completion
- Over 35 ½ Yards -150
- Under 35 ½ Yards +120
Analysis: During the regular season, Manning’s longest completion was 78 yards and this postseason, he has a 37-yard completion on his resume. I think Manning gets one completion of at least 36 yards in this one.
The Pick: Peyton Manning Over 35 ½ Yards
Most receiving Yards
- Doug Baldwin +15½ Receiving Yards -115
- Wes Welker -15½ Receiving Yards -115
Analysis: Doug Baldwin has prove himself to be an extremely talented wide receiver, but let’s be honest about it…he’s not going to get nearly as many chances to catch balls as Wes Welker in this contest. While Baldwin is the far more explosive receiver in this matchup, Wes Welker is a big-time veteran that will likely surpass Baldwin here because of sheer volume. Keep it simple and go with the guy that will catch more passes.
The Pick: Wes Welker -15½ Receiving Yards
Robert Turbin Total Rushing Yards
- Over 11 ½ -130
- Under 11 ½ +100
Analysis: I have no idea why this player props odds jumps off the page for me, but it does. Robert Turbin is gifted, but he hasn’t exactly been afforded a bunch of playing time as the backup to Marshawn Lynch, but I like him to get 12 yards in this game for some reason. I know Turbin has rushed for an identical nine yards in each of Seattle two playoff games this postseason, but I think it’s quite possible that he gashes Denver’s defense for one double-digit run alone as they put all of their focus on stopping Lynch a more powerful, but less elusive runner than Turbin. Besides, Turbin rushed for more than 11½ yards 12 times during the regular season.
Player to Throw First TD Pass
- Russell Wilson +140
- Peyton Manning -170
Analysis: I don’t think it takes a rocket scientist to know that it’s highly more probable that Peyton Manning throw a touchdown pass before Russell Wilson. Could the polar opposite take place? Certainly…it’s not like Wilson is chopped liver. However, what do you think the chances are that Manning doesn’t throw a touchdown pass first? Yeah…they’re not going to be very good. Keep it simple and don’t over-think this one. Back Peyton Manning to throw a touchdown pass before Russell Wilson.
The Pick: Peyton Manning -170 to Throw First TD Pass
