Super Bowl LVIII Darkhorse Parlay Picks: Don’t Sleep On Rice, Aiyuk, Pacheco

As we wait until kickoff this Sunday, I bring you four top Super Bowl picks to make a killer parlay based on players that, even if not being household names, could still bring the heat and lead you to a betting victory.

Here’s a look at some NFL odds to consider!

Pick 1: Chiefs WR Rashee Rice At Least 1 TD (+120)

Trying to find a Chiefs receiver that can actually make a difference in Super Bowl LVIII has been no easy feat. All season long, Kansas City’s biggest offensive flaw has been the lack of firepower from its receiver corps.

But, as all hope is ready to be lost and Kansas City now has to deal with being Super Bowl betting underdogs, mainly because of its receiver corps performing in such an underwhelming way, enter rookie wideout Rashee Rice.

Rice has become Patrick Mahomes’ second favorite target after tight end Travis Kelce. Knowing San Francisco’s secondary is the team’s weakest link, Rice should be able to take full advantage of this and try to go for at least one score on Sunday.

If I had to dish out a Super Bowl prediction right now, the Chiefs making early and heavy use of Rice in the game is it.

So take Rice scoring at least once to build your strong parlay.

Pick 1: Chiefs WR Rashee


Pick 2: 49ers WR Brandon Aiyuk At Least 5 Receptions (+127)

I’m sure Brock Purdy is well aware that on Sunday he will have to bring his A-game when it comes to passing the ball against Kansas City. Not only because he’ll be playing one of the best cornerback duos in the league in L’Jarius Sneed and Trent McDuffie, but also because he’ll have Mahomes on the opposing sideline.

Considering Sneed and McDuffie will surely be looking to target Deebo Samuel and the eventual Christian McCaffrey pass plays, that leaves the door open for another 49ers receiver to get a chance to shine and pop off.

In San Francisco’s wins against the Green Bay Packers in the NFC Divisional Round and against the Detroit Lions for the NFC title, Brandon Aiyuk had only three receptions in each of the games.

I know, it doesn’t sound like much. Yet when you consider he had a combined 14 targets, it comes to show you the man gets plenty of love from his QB.

On Sunday, I’m willing to bet Aiyuk gets a fair amount of attempts once again, thus leading him to have at least five receptions and making this Super Bowl betting pick a lock to win.

Pick 3: Chiefs RB Isiah Pacheco Over 69.5 Rushing Yards (-124)

Being a starting running back for a team whose passing game has shown serious deficiencies all season is one thing. The chances of experiencing ups and downs are always there, but at the end of the day, everything seems to work out.

Being that same team’s starting running back going into the Super Bowl. Well, that’s a whole other story filled with gallons of pressure.

That is Kansas City RB Isiah Pacheco’s story heading into Super Bowl LVIII.

The good thing about this whole ordeal is that “Pop” – as Pacheco is known – doesn’t really seem to be fazed by the pressure and is ready to go off on San Francisco’s at-times struggling defense.

Having rushed for 89 yards against the Miami Dolphins, followed by 97 against the Buffalo Bills and 68 against the Baltimore Ravens, and scoring a touchdown in each of those games, Pacheco has shown his team can rely on him to get the job done on offense.

With his yard number set at 69.5 in our sportsbook, taking his over, as the Chiefs will likely give him the ball at least 15 to 20 times, should lead to very profitable betting results.

Pick 4: Total Under 47½ (-110)

Remember last year’s Super Bowl, where the Chiefs and Philadelphia Eagles ended up in an all-out offensive shootout.

Those were the good old days.

I know my tone might sound a bit pessimistic considering Super Bowl LVIII will once again have Kansas City, featuring Mahomes and Travis Kelce, facing a Niners offense led by Purdy, Samuel, McCaffrey and Co.

But considering the level of talent and overall dominance both defenses have shown throughout the season, betting the under in the total feels like a much better bet than expecting this to be a point-scoring fiesta.

Take Kansas City for example. Its defense held Miami’s high-octane offense to seven points in the Wild Card round. Afterward, it continued to hold its own against Buffalo in the Divisional Round and stymied Baltimore in the AFC title game.

San Francisco’s defense, on the other hand, has been more of a late bloomer in games, showing its best football in the second half of its last games.

In a game where both teams will be looking to take their time and manage the game clock as much as possible to secure a win, again, betting the under feels like the best Super Bowl betting option to go with.
