The Super Bowl is quickly approaching and those who bet online are having the time of their lives checking out the options on the BetUS sportsbook.
Those who get bored with the passing, rushing and receiving props can check out prop and future bets in other sports to compare value. For the ones involving the Kansas City Chiefs in Super Bowl 58, we are leaning on quarterback Patrick Mahomes and tight end Travis Kelce to deliver.
The Chiefs are listed by the NFL betting lines as the two-point underdogs against San Francisco in Super Bowl LVIII. The game is set for Sunday at 6:30 p.m. ET at Allegiant Stadium, the home of the Las Vegas Raiders. The Super Bowl will be televised by CBS.
Keep on reading for one of the best prop bets this week for the Chiefs and compare their value to props in tennis and golf.
No Prayer Necessary: Fade Sinner, Prop Up Mahomes
Tennis star Jannik Sinner is off to a sizzling start in 2024 after taking down 10-time champion Novak Djokovic in the semifinals on his way to winning the Australian Open. It was the first Grand Slam singles title for the 22-year-old Italian.
Sinner has advanced to at least the quarterfinals in each of the other three Grand Slam events and the BetUS sportsbook has Sinner priced at +150 to win two Slams this year.
When looking at the Super Bowl prop bets, Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes has +135 odds to be named the MVP of Super Bowl LVIII. He looks to join Hall of Fame quarterbacks Bart Starr of the Green Bay Packers and Terry Bradshaw of the Pittsburgh Steelers as back-to-back winners.
We like Mahomes’ chances of winning a third Super Bowl MVP award better than Sinner picking up another Grand Slam title.
Pass on Gauff, Cash on Mahomes’ Fourth-Quarter Prop
Will Patrick Mahomes save his best for last?
If the favored San Francisco 49ers can take an early lead, the Chiefs will have little choice but to throw the ball late in the game.
With a win Sunday, Patrick Mahomes will have won his second straight Super Bowl and third by the age of 28.
Tom Brady — the undisputed Greatest of All Time — has seven rings and won his third by 28 as well.
Is it time for comparisons?

That is just fine with Mahomes at quarterback for the Chiefs as long as his offensive line can keep him upright.
The moneyline is set at +175 for Mahomes to have more passing yards in the fourth quarter than in any of the other quarters. The second and third quarters were the most productive for Mahomes in last year’s Super Bowl, but that might change with the Chiefs facing the 49ers instead of the Eagles with the Lombardi Trophy on the line.
Those are the same odds for reigning US Open women’s tennis champion Coco Gauff to win at least one Grand Slam title in 2024. With the Australian Open already over, that gives Gauff three chances to deliver for those who bet online.
Bet on Kelce to Make This Cut
There has never been a tight end who has received as much attention leading into a Super Bowl than Travis Kelce of the Chiefs thanks to his relationship with singer Taylor Swift.
Even before the hype got out of control, Kelce established himself as one of the top pass catchers in NFL postseason history. When Mahomes needs to make a play, he is likely looking in the direction of his star tight end.
The moneyline is at -115 for Kelce to have 70+ receiving yards in the Super Bowl.
Golfer Cameron Smith has almost identical odds of -110 to make the cut in all four major tournaments.
Smith has missed the cut in two of his last three US Opens so it might be better to go with Kelce in this prop bet.
