Jalen Hurts Higher than 21.5 Completions

  • Jalen Hurts was higher than this number in just five of 17 games played this year. However, I really like this line for the Super Bowl because of the matchup.
  • Quarterbacks averaged 36.7 pass attempts and 24.1 completions per game against the Chiefs this year.
    • That 24.1 completions per game figure is even getting dragged down because Malik Willis completed just five passes in Week 9.
  • In 15 of 19 games this year, the opposing quarterback was higher against Kansas City.
  • The only QBs lower than this number were:

Jerick McKinnon Lower than 22.5 Rushing Yards

  • Jerick McKinnon has five or fewer carries in four of his past five games.
  • McKinnon has seven or fewer rushing yards in four of his past five games.
  • McKinnon has only beaten this number once in the past five games when he carried a season-high 11 times for 25 yards against Jacksonville.
  • McKinnon is averaging just 1.8 yards per carry over the past five games.
  • The Eagles are not a great run defense, but they’ve been roughly league-average the past two months.
  • Clyde Edwards-Helaire was nearly activated ahead of the AFC Conference Championship game, and he should be active for the Super Bowl in two weeks.
    • Assuming Edwards-Helaire is activated, McKinnon’s rushing line should drop precipitously.

Patrick Mahomes Lower than 18.5 Rushing Yards

  • Patrick Mahomes will be three weeks removed from the high-ankle sprain come the Super Bowl.
    • Full recovery generally takes 4-6 weeks, so he shouldn’t have his normal mobility back yet
  • Mahomes was lower than this number in nine of 19 games this year.
  • Mahomes averaged 21 rushing yards per game during the regular season when fully healthy.
  • This line is similar to his season average, not baking in the ankle issue.
  • In the past two games with this injury, Mahomes has run three times for eight yards in each contest.
