Super Bowl prop bet: Gronkowski highlights touchdown odds for Sunday’s contest

Advertisement

As one of Tom Brady’s favorite targets, Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski is a popular pick on the Super Bowl LII props board for Sunday’s game against the Eagles.

Rob Gronkowski was targeted 105 times and led the New England Patriots in the regular season with 69 catches, 1,084 yards receiving, and eight receiving touchdowns. Now that he is officially cleared to play in Super Bowl LII, Gronkowski is receiving plenty of attention at the betting window on touchdown props.

Gronkowski is going off at -150 to score a touchdown at any point on the Super Bowl LII props at sportsbooks monitored by OddsShark.com. This is a high premium to pay for a player that has averaged 0.75 touchdowns per game over his career, but there is no denying that the league’s top tight end – third at +900 on the Super Bowl MVP odds – is a major threat to find pay dirt in every game that he starts.

Brandin Cooks may offer a bit more value for Patriots backers at +110 to score a touchdown at some point in the game. Cooks put up comparable numbers to Gronkowski during the regular season with 65 catches, 1,082 yards receiving, and seven touchdowns and feels due for a big game after a slow start to the regular season.

Other Patriots options include Dion Lewis (+120), Rex Burkhead (+175), James White (+175), Danny Amendola (+175), and Chris Hogan (+225).

Philadelphia Eagles tight end Zach Ertz (+140 to score a touchdown in Super Bowl LII) and Nelson Agholor (+225) each had eight receiving touchdowns during the regular season while Alshon Jeffery (+175) led the team with nine. Jeffery also snagged two touchdowns catches in Philadelphia’s 38-7 win over Minnesota in the NFC Championship. Jay Ajayi (+150) and LeGarrette Blount (+200) will also try to reach the end zone out of the backfield.

Moving on to team scoring props, the Patriots are the favorite to be the first team to score in Super Bowl LII at -145 over Philadelphia at +115 and are also favored to be the last team to score at -140 over Philadelphia at +110.
