Super Bowl 57 between the Eagles and Chiefs promises to be one of the best in recent memory, as it features two of the best quarterbacks in the league this season. Jalen Hurts was the betting favorite to win MVP most of the season, but a late-season shoulder injury opened the door for Patrick Mahomes to overtake him. Hurts still had an excellent regular season, compiling 35 total touchdowns and only throwing six interceptions.
Heading into Super Bowl 57, bettors will be looking to cash in on Hurts’ player props and hopefully come away on the winning side on a few of them. Below, we took a look at some of our favorite Hurts’ props, which includes his anytime TD odds and the over/under on his rushing yards.

Best Jalen Hurts prop bets for Super Bowl 57
Odds courtesy of FanDuel Sportsbook
Jalen Hurts UNDER 31.5 pass attempts (-114)
With Hurts still dealing with a right shoulder injury, we will take the UNDER on his attempts in the Super Bowl. The dual-threat quarterback is unlikely to be asked to throw 32 or more times against the Chiefs, especially if the Eagles can find their groove on the ground. Hurts faced this Kansas City team last season, where he completed 32-of-48 passes for 387 yards and two touchdowns. While it was nice for Hurts to have a big day through the air, it wasn’t a recipe for success, as the Chiefs won 42-30. If the Eagles want to win the big game, they will need Hurts to be used both on the ground and in the passing game. He has gone UNDER 31.5 pass attempts in nine out of 15 regular season games and easily hit the UNDER in both playoff games (24 attempts vs. NYG, 25 attempts vs. SF).
SUPER BOWL PROPS:

Jalen Hurts anytime TD scorer (+100)
With Hurts having almost two weeks to rest his sore right shoulder, it’s likely that he will be more involved in the running game, especially inside the red zone. Hurts scored last week against the 49ers and had a rushing touchdown in Philly’s blowout win over the Giants. During the regular season, the dynamic dual-threat quarterback scored a career-high 13 rushing touchdowns, with 11 coming inside the red zone. Bettors should pounce on this number because it could be -105 or -120 by Super Bowl Sunday.
SUPER BOWL 57 EXOTIC PROP BETS:
National Anthem | Halftime | Broadcast | Coin toss, more
Jalen Hurts OVER 10.5 rushing attempts (-112)
Since we don’t like Hurts to go OVER his passing attempts, the next best player prop to hit is the OVER on his rushing attempts. For the Eagles to win next Sunday, they will need Hurts to be on his A-game on the ground, which could open opportunities for RBs Miles Sanders, Boston Scott, and Kenneth Gainwell. The third-year quarterback has gone OVER 10.5 rushing attempts in seven out of 15 regular season games, and in those seven games where Hurts had 11 or more carries, the Eagles were a perfect 7-0. The Chiefs’ defense has seen their fair share of mobile QBs this season, and most had success on the ground. If Hurts can go OVER this number, the Eagles’ offense will be in good shape.

Jalen Hurts UNDER 49.5 rushing yards (-114)
Even though we like Hurts to score a rushing touchdown and go OVER his rushing attempts, we think he will go UNDER 49.5 rushing yards against the Chiefs. In the Eagles’ two playoff games, Hurts only had four and 39 rushing yards, respectively. The main reason for this is that they got contributions from Sanders and Gainwell, who were both effective on the ground. We could see the same game script play out in the Super Bowl next week. Hurts has gone UNDER in eight out of 15 games during the regular season, and when the Chiefs faced mobile QBs like Kyler Murray, Malik Willis, Trevor Lawrence, Josh Allen, and Bryce Perkins, they all failed to reach the 50-yard threshold. The only QBs to be effective on the ground were Russell Wilson (57 yards in Week 14) and Jarrett Stidham (50 yards in Week 18).
Jalen Hurts passing TDs: Exactly 2 (+240)
Finally, if you like Hurts to go OVER 1.5 passing TDs at -114 odds, why not try to get better ROI and more value by playing his exact passing TDs for +240 odds? There’s a chance Chiefs defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo will try to make Hurts beat them with his arm, which he’s proven he can do this season. The third-year quarterback has thrown at least two TD passes in eight out of 15 regular season games. Hurts also had a four-game stretch between Weeks 6-10, where he had 10 touchdowns and only one interception. Kansas City has a good front seven, but they are also young in the secondary, and that is where Hurts can get the ball to A.J. Brown and DeVonta Smith for touchdowns.
