Super Bowl LVII Prop Picks: Jerick McKinnon Provides the Early Value

Jerick McKinnon has been a surprise player for the Kansas City Chiefs this season with his versatility in the pass-and-run game. I couldn’t believe that his first rush prop was so low. McKinnon is very explosive and has great speed and elusiveness in his game. This honestly should be the easiest cash of the Super Bowl and let’s dive deep into this prop.

Super Bowl LVII Prediction

McKinnon has filled in nicely for this Chiefs' offense and has done everything they needed. The 30-year-old should be a breakout player for Kansas City on Sunday. Jerick should be able to do so by running the ball well against this Philadelphia Eagles team that is going to focus on the pass primarily.

McKinnon over 2.5 yards on his first rush is honestly way too low for someone like him. The style of player he is breaks runs with ease. The running back is a huge threat for the Chiefs and has 291 rush yards and averages four yards per carry on the season. Those numbers right there is the reason why this prop is too low.

The Georgia Southern product is sneaky because you wouldn’t expect him to get the ball by handoffs from Patrick Mahomes since he usually gets the ball in the passing game. That's one of the ways that he's a huge threat to the Chiefs.

McKinnon should easily cash this. The Eagles will not be expecting him to get the carry and he could easily break five yards on his first carry. Jerick's first carry will be money for all of us and I promise you that! So let’s cash this one.
