We keep tabs on Jimmy Garoppolo’s performance and prop bet progress during Super Bowl 54.

The San Francisco 49ers and Kansas City Chiefs hit the gridiron in Super Bowl 54 tonight. Many believe that this will be a classic battle between two high-powered offenses. The Chiefs possess a strong air assault led by QB Patrick Mahomes and receivers Tyreek Hill and Travis Kelce. The 49ers haven’t needed much from QB Jimmy Garoppolo this postseason, opting to take advantage of the ground game and play solid defense. How will this impact how you approach Jimmy G’s player props on DK Sportsbook?

Well, for one, it puts Jimmy G in an advantageous spot if you believe the 49ers will win and you believe, in most cases, the QB wins MVP. Garoppolo is +225 to take home the award and if San Fran can win, his chances are pretty good. Still, it’s hard to envision a game script where Garoppolo torches the Chiefs secondary and the 49ers go on to win. If nothing else KC has great cover corners and safeties who should cause problems for the Niners WR corps.

Through two playoffs games in 2019, Jimmy G is averaging 104 passing yards per game with just one TD and one INT on 27 pass attempts. Those are statistics that Mahomes would put up in less than a quarter in some games. So clearly, if the Niners stick to their game plan so far this postseason, we shouldn’t see Garoppolo forced to throw the ball much.
