Super Bowl XLVII has a ton of great prop bets that you can wager on this year per the usual and below are five of my favorite stat ones that include players from both the Baltimore Ravens and the San Francisco 49ers.
(BAL @ SF) – Total Passing Yards – Joe Flacco (BAL) – Under 250½
The 49ers can\’t allow the explosive play in this game and will thus dare the Ravens to run the ball and work underneath. I like the under here for Joe Flacco as it relates to total passing yards.
(BAL @ SF) – Total Receptions – Bernard Pierce (BAL) – Over ½
Running back Bernard Pierce could figure to make a huge difference in this game as he has a great ability to gain the edge outside. He was only been thrown to 7 times during the regular season and once last week against the Patriots It only takes one catch to win this prop, however.
(BAL @ SF) – Longest Reception – Torrey Smith (BAL) – Under 28½
As I mentioned previously, the 49ers can\’t allow themselves to get beat many times in this game by the explosive play. They have to keep everything in front of them and thus Torrey Smith catching one 29 yards or more should be tough to accomplish.
(BAL @ SF) – Total Tackles & Assists – Bernard Pollard (BAL) – Over 6½
Bernard Pollard will most likely be a busy man on Sunday, especially if Colin Kaepernick takes off a few times. This is total tackles and assist and I think the Ravens safety should total at least 7.
(BAL @ SF) – Longest Rush – Frank Gore (SF) – Under 17½
The Ravens have allowed only 11 runs of 18 yards or more all season and Frank Gore isn\’t necessary known as a burner either. I like the 17 or under.
