NFL: Tennessee Titans at Philadelphia Eagles Eric Hartline-USA TODAY Sports

The Philadelphia Eagles will square off against the Kansas City Chiefs in Super Bowl 57. Kickoff from State Farm Stadium in Glendale, AZ is scheduled for 6:30 p.m. ET while airing on FOX.

Eagles RB Kenneth Gainwell had a moderate role throughout the 2022 season. Sometimes he saw a handful of carries, and other games he only had one or two total touches. However, Gainwell has emerged in the playoffs, taking 26 total rushing attempts for 160 rushing yards and a touchdown in two postseason games leading up to Super Bowl 57. He had three receptions (five targets) for 35 receiving yards across those two games as well.

Gainwell has several Super Bowl prop bets listed at DraftKings Sportsbook. Here are some of the most notable options: O/U 20.5 rushing yards, O/U 4.5 rushing attempts, O/U 10.5 receiving yards, and O/U 1.5 receptions.

Fourth quarter update: Gainwell paid off for those who bet the over, but the Eagles would go on to lose the Super Bowl.

Third quarter update: Gainwell has officially gone over on every single prop listed. Hopefully he doesn’t lose a yard on a run, as he’s currently sitting at 21 yards on seven carries.

Second quarter update: Gainwell has gone over on rushing attempts and receptions, as he’s got six and two respectively. He’s gone over on receiving yards with 13, while he needs three more yards to go over on his rushing yards prop. Over bettors rejoice!

First quarter update: We’ve reached the end of the first quarter and Gainwell has two carries for four yards. His rush attempts prop will probably hit, although Sanders is back out there for the Eagles after briefly going to the locker room.

First quarter update: Gainwell appears to be getting more touches here, as he’s been on the field more than Miles Sanders for the first two drives. For those who bet overs on Gainwell’s props, it’s looking like those wagers will pay off.

First quarter update: Well, if you had Gainwell as the game’s first touchdown scorer, you’re probably quite unhappy right now. The running back appeared to have the score on a third and 3, but his elbow was short of the goal line. Jalen Hurts snuck the ball in on the next play to become the game’s first touchdown scorer.
