After a longer season than years past due to the extra regular season game, the Super Bowl is now just a mere couple of days away. All of the major sportsbooks currently list the Eagles as 1.5-point favorites in the big game despite the array of injuries for the Kansas City Chiefs at the wide receiver position. A big part of the reason for such a small gap given the circumstances is the presence of Travis Kelce and Patrick Mahomes. The two have established one of the most challenging to defend partnerships in football and are expected to have lights-out performances.
With all eyes expected to be on the Chiefs’ star QB and tight end, we put together a few of the Travis Kelce Super Bowl props for the big game that are available at all of the nation’s top online sports betting apps.

Travis Kelce Super Bowl Prop Bets
FanDuel: Kelce to have more than 7 Receptions (+110)
Whether the Chiefs get good news about one of their questionable wide receivers or not, Kelce will be a focal point of the offense. What makes this a good wager to consider is the Eagles’ pass rush. They led the league in bringing pressure this year, ending the season with 70 sacks, which is 15 more than the second-place Chiefs in that category.
The Chiefs usually slow down pass rushes with creative screens and motion plays. Considering their injuries, you can expect Kelce to get a lot of those quick and easy targets to take what the defense gives them and keep the chains moving. He will likely see an influx of targets as well, which sets him up nicely to cover this number.

Caesars: Kelce to Score the First Touchdown for the Chiefs (+300)
Injuries enhance the odds of just about every player prop bet for Kelce. Without WR JuJu Smith-Schuster, the Chiefs’ big play abilities take a major dip. WR Marquez Valdes-Scantling has made a lot of big plays, but he has benefited from the attention Kelce and Smith-Schuster receive. Without Smith-Schuster, it won’t be as difficult for the Eagles to contain him.
The injuries will force the Chiefs to complete longer drives, both in time of possession and distance to the end zone. However, once they arrive in the red zone, there is no option on the team better than Kelce, and the Chiefs aren’t going to let the Eagles take him away easily. Kelce has been targeted a league-high 29 times among tight ends in the red zone, which he cashed in for 10 touchdowns (also a league high among tight ends).
When you account for the additional targets he is sure to get in this game, you have to like the possibility of Kelce striking first for the Chiefs.

BetMGM: Kelce to have the Most Receiving Yards in the Game (+200)
Kelce’s abilities will be heavily relied upon in this game, but Mahomes will have a major say in his success. In addition to the creative plays the Chiefs unveil in the game, they’ll need Mahomes to make some of his timely, off-schedule plays to help buy Kelce some extra time in his routes. Mahomes is good for two to three of these plays per game, and with the Chiefs’ limitations, there is a good chance he will be looking for Kelce when he does. Between the off-schedule plays and taking what the defense gives them, Kelce could easily top the stat sheet in receiving yards for the Chiefs.
On the other end, Hurts hasn’t topped 200 passing yards in the playoffs, and the Chiefs’ pass rush may continue to hinder his timing in that part of his game while he continues to nurse his injured shoulder. That doesn’t bode well for Eagles receivers.
