NFL Super Bowl 51 Quarterback Player Props Odds

 
 

More Completions

Tom Brady (NE) +1.5 -110 Matt Ryan (ATL) -1.5 -110 Analysis: In whopping 33 career playoff starts, Tom Brady has averaged 23.8 completions per game. Over his last 32 regular season starts, Atlanta’s Matt Ryan has averaged 24.3 completions per game. Since the Falcons throw the ball a whole lot more than New England, I fully expect Ryan to win this matchup wager by three of four completions at the least. Pick: Matt Ryan

More Touchdown Passes

Tom Brady (NE) PK -140 Matt Ryan (ATL) PK +120 Analysis: In 142 career starts, Matt Ryan has averaged 1.6 touchdown passes per game while compiling a 7.1 TD pass percentage this season. In 235 career starts, Tom Brady has averaged 1.9 TD passes per game, but compiled a 6.5 TD pass percentage this season. I’m thinking Atlanta’s Matt Ryan is the pick again, mostly because the Falcons have such a pass-based offensive attack. Pick: Matt Ryan

More Gross Passing Yards

Tom Brady (NE) +20.5 -110 Matt Ryan (ATL) -20.5 -110 Analysis: Tom Brady averaged a stellar 296.2 passing yards per game this season and has averaged an impressive 259.8 passing yards per game in his career. Conversely, Matt Ryan averaged a phenomenal 365.0 passing yards per game this season while averaging a whopping 280.0 passing yards per game for his career. Again, the numbers don’t lie. Back Matt Ryan here. Pick: Matt Ryan

Who Will Throw A Touchdown Pass First

Tom Brady (NE) -130 Matt Ryan (ATL) +110 Analysis: This pick really doesn’t require any more historical data on both quarterbacks than what you’ve already red about. Still, I’m going with Matt Ryan in what is basically a 50-50 wager.

Who Will Throw An Interception First

Tom Brady (NE) +175 Matt Ryan (ATL) -200 Analysis: In seven career playoff starts, Matt Ryan has tossed seven interceptions although he threw just seven all season coming into Super Bowl 51 and none in his last six starts. In his 33 career playoff starts, Tom Brady has tossed a surprising 30 interceptions. Although Brady he threw just two picks during the regular season, he did throw two picks in the divisional round against Houston. Still, I’d have to say that Matt Ryan is more likely to fall prey to Bill Belichick’s defensive schemes than the other way around with Brady. Take Matt Ryan to throw a pick first. Pick: Matt Ryan
