Super Bowl LV cross-sport props: Will Durant outscore the Chiefs?

As if there weren’t enough prop bets to tackle in Super Bowl LV, BetaSoccer Bet has released a host of cross-sport props to take advantage of – if you’re willing to test your knowledge across multiple sports.

If not, we’ve done the legwork for you. Here are our favorite cross-sport props and where we lean on each.

(All events on Feb. 7 unless noted otherwise.)

Nikola Jokic + Jamal Murray points (2/6/21) vs. Super Bowl total points after 3 quarters

Jokic + Murray points -3.5 -110
Super Bowl points after 3 quarters +3.5 -110

The Denver Nuggets haven’t played their best basketball this year, but their two stars have – Jokic is averaging a career-high 26.1 points, and Murray is scoring 19 points per game as the second option. That adds up to almost exactly 3.5 points more than what you expect through three quarters on Sunday. To help matters, they play the Sacramento Kings, who have the worst defense in the NBA.

Pick: Jokic + Murray -3.5 (-110)

Nuggets points (2/6/21) vs. Tyreek Hill receiving yards

Nuggets points -24.5 -110
Hill receiving yards +24.5 -110

Denver boasts a top-five offense and is averaging 115.5 points per game. And, as mentioned above, Sacramento’s defense ranks dead last in defensive rating and is allowing 121.1 points per game. Hill’s receiving prop (94.5) is climbing by the minute, but he’d still have to have a monster game to win this bet. Don’t expect the Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ defense to let him do what he did last time these two teams squared off.

Pick: Nuggets -24.5

Kevin Durant points (2/6) vs. Chiefs points

Durant points -0.5 -110
Chiefs points +0.5 -110

The beauty of this prop is its simplicity. Durant is averaging 30.8 points this year, and the Kansas City Chiefs have averaged 29.6 points this year and are priced at 30.5 on Sunday. Both face a tough test defensively, though the floor feels safer with Durant, who’s scored less than 28 points just three times through 17 games.

Pick: Durant -0.5 (-110)

Liverpool + Manchester City goals vs. Patrick Mahomes + Tom Brady touchdown passes

Liverpool + Manchester City goals +1.5 +165
Mahomes + Brady touchdown passes -1.5 -185

You have to go all the way back to Oct. 17 to find the last time Liverpool allowed more than a goal in a Premier League match at Anfield, while Manchester City have recorded six successive league clean sheets and eight in their last nine. The reverse fixture between these two sides ended 1-1, with a similarly tight encounter expected Sunday. That’s a long way from the number of passing touchdowns we’ll see in the Super Bowl. Four should be the floor here, with five or six more likely. Lay it all day long.

Pick: Mahomes + Brady TD passes -1.5 (-185)

Iowa men’s basketball points vs. Travis Kelce receiving yards

Iowa men’s basketball points +4.5 +130
Kelce receiving yards -4.5 -150

Kelce has been on an absolute tear during the second half of the year, averaging 114 receiving yards per game since Week 8 with a combined 227 in two playoff games. Iowa’s offense has been cooking, too, but it hasn’t scored 100 points since Dec. 13 despite ridiculous efficiency, and it faces a slow-tempo team in Indiana. This should be a landslide for Kelce.

Pick: Kelce -4.5 (-150)

Phoenix Open winner final-round birdies vs. Travis Kelce receptions

Phoenix Open winner final-round birdies +1.5 +105
Kelce receptions -1.5 -125

If you thought Kelce’s receiving yards were impressive, he’s averaged 11.4 receptions in his last 10 games, with at least 10 catches in all but one of them. The middle of the field should be open for him on Sunday, and unless prime Tiger Woods is walking the course in the final round, Kelce’s total should be too much to overcome.

Pick: Kelce -1.5 (-125)

LaMelo Ball points + rebounds + assists vs. combined 1st-half points

Ball points + rebounds + assists -0.5 Even
Super Bowl 1st-half points +0.5 -120

Can anyone stop Ball? The Charlotte Hornets rookie is averaging 19.8 points in his last four games – which include his first two starts of the season – and he’s tallied a combined average of 32 points, rebounds, and assists in that span. That’s well over the first-half total of 27.5 for the Super Bowl. Give us the rookie.

Pick: Ball -0.5 (Even)

Blackhawks goals vs. Chiefs FGs made

Blackhawks goals -0.5 -140
Chiefs FGs made +0.5 +120

The Chiefs are attempting 1.78 field goals per game this season and have kicked five in two playoff contests. The Buccaneers are the stingiest red-zone defense they’ve faced yet, so two feels like a relatively safe assumption here. Meanwhile, the Chicago Blackhawks are managing just 2.41 expected goals per 60 minutes this season, and the Dallas Stars are allowing an even stingier 2.22. The Blackhawks have scored just once in each of their last two visits to Dallas, so don’t expect them to light the lamp on Sunday. A tie is the likeliest outcome here, so getting +120 is great value.

Pick: Chiefs FGs made +0.5 (+120)
