Mahomes ran in the first touchdown from 1 yard out with 31 seconds left in the first quarter to cash in at 14-1 odds at Caesars Sportsbook.
Bad beat for Mahomes rushing yards bettors
Total rushing yards by Patrick Mahomes (KC): Under 36.5
This was one of the most popular public bets, as it opened 27.5 at William Hill and got as high as 36.5. Mahomes had 44 rushing yards until the final drive of the fourth quarter, during which he took three extended kneel-downs -- and lost 15 yards. He finished with only 29 rushing yards, in one of the worst bad beats of the Super Bowl for bettors.
Over for Chiefs offensive players
Total rushing yards by Damien Williams (KC): Over 51.5
Total receiving yards by Sammy Watkins (KC): Over 49.5
Total receiving yards by Tyreek Hill (KC): Over 73.5
Most of Kansas City's skill-position talent came up huge, as Williams cashed his over with 104 yards on 17 carries and Watkins (98 yards on five catches) and Hill (105 yards on nine catches) easily went over their totals.
Under for big-time tight ends
Total receiving yards by George Kittle (SF): Under 73.5
Total receiving yards by Travis Kelce (KC): Under 76.5
Two of the best tight ends in football each didn't have big games, with Kittle (36 yards on four receptions) and Kelce (43 yards on six receptions) both staying well below their totals. The longest reception by either player was only 12 yards.
A big Kyle Juszczyk game
Total receiving yards by Kyle Juszczyk (SF): Over 10.5
Will Kyle Juszczyk score a TD?: Yes +650
If you were holding a positive Kyle Juszczyk prop, chances are that it cashed. The fullback caught three passes to soar over his total of 10.5 yards and scored a touchdown. He almost caught a second but was ruled down at the 1-yard line. Juszczyk scoring a touchdown wasn't a good result at Caesars, as director of trading Jeff Davis called it a "disaster."
Zion Williamson (Pelicans) points + rebounds (31)
Kansas City Chiefs total points (31)
Zion Williamson assists (1)
Patrick Mahomes TD passes (2)
Williamson had a good game, scoring 21 points and adding 10 rebounds in a 117-109 loss to the Houston Rockets. The high-scoring Chiefs were held down for three quarters by the 49ers' defense but ended up producing 31 points to push. Mahomes threw two touchdown passes, and Williamson had only one assist.
James Harden (Rockets) points + rebounds + assists (59)
Sammy Watkins receiving yards (98)
Harden nearly pulled off a triple-double against the Pelicans, scoring 40 points to go along with 10 rebounds and 9 assists. However, this prop was never really in doubt after Watkins' strong first half on the way to 98 yards receiving for the game.
Giannis Antetokounmpo points + assists (39)
Distance of first made field goal in Super Bowl LIV (38)
This prop at the Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook was as close as it gets. Antetokounmpo had a big game against the Phoenix Suns on Sunday, posting 30 points and nine assists. Robbie Gould got the 49ers on the board, kicking a 38-yard field goal with 7:57 left in the first quarter.
