I did Kansas City Chiefs’ running back Jerick McKinnon dirty last week with a Super Bowl prediction talking about his lack of usage in the current scheme. I failed to mention that while McKinnon is getting few rushing attempts, his production as a pass-catcher exploded over the final nine weeks of the season.
He is arguably the second most crucial pass-catcher behind Travis Kelce due to his touchdowns in that time. With numbers like McKinnon is putting up, we have to give credit where credit is due and talk about his abilities as a receiver.
Let’s check the latest Super Bowl picks, stats, injury reports and Super Bowl odds. We’ve got plenty of Super Bowl lines for you to consider.
Jerick McKinnon Over 20 ½ Receiving Yards, 2+ Total Receptions & Anytime Touchdown Scorer Same Game Parlay (+408)
The first two legs of this prop are tied together, meaning if one hits, the other will likely win. McKinnon totaled two or more catches in eight of his previous nine games and 13 of his last 15. His yardage is less consistent, but McKinnon has gone over 20½ yards in four of his previous seven starts.
If you prefer to play it safe, go ahead and just parlay these two props at +112. But if you are feeling spicy, I suggest adding McKinnon to score a touchdown.
JERRICK MCKINNON FOR SIXXXXXX 🔥🔥
CHIEFS LEAD 🗣

Despite falling out of favor in the ground game, McKinnon is putting in work as a receiver with a staggering eight receiving touchdowns in his final six games of the regular season. He and Patrick Mahomes have developed chemistry, and McKinnon has found a way to contribute to his team by doing things outside his job description. This Super Bowl bet reflects that, and it is much more likely than the combined odds suggest.
