Miles Sanders Player Props

As you well know, Sunday marks Super Bowl 57, the most exciting day of the year to people like us — NFL bettors.

The other thing you might know is that the Philadelphia Eagles have an incredible ground game. They rushed for an incredible 147.6 yards on average over the regular season, a number which has spiked to 208 over the postseason.

Miles Sanders has been one of the key reasons why this team have been so dynamic on the ground, and below we’re going to take a closer look at the Eagles running back and work out the bet way to bet on him for Super Bowl LVII between the Chiefs and Eagles.

Betting Picks

Sanders has been an Eagle since 2019, when Philadelphia drafted him 53rd overall in the second round of the NFL Draft. He’s emerged from the shadow of fellow Penn State alum Saquon Barkley, who also plays in the NFC East.

After three inconsistent seasons, Sanders finally went off. He’s played more games, had more carries, rushed for more yards and scored more touchdowns that any other season in his career. His 11 regular season rushing touchdowns this year is two more than he managed in the previous three seasons combined — in part due to his 2021 campaign, when he didn’t find the end zone in 137 carries.

There are a number of ways to bet on Sanders — you can go with an anytime touchdown, or delve into his rushing and receiving lines.

You can grab a +130 ticket on Sanders finding the end zone, or a +800 ticket if you’re feeling confident that he could do it twice. Sanders has scored two or more touchdowns on four occasions this year, most notably in the Conference Championship Game against the Niners.

Given that we saw two players — Cooper Kupp and Tee Higgins — score twice last year, I understand the appeal, but there is better value to be had elsewhere.

The +130 anytime TD is tempting with Sanders scoring in nine of 19 games, but given he’s scored in just one game in the past six, I’d avoid it.

His receiving yards line sits at 4.5 with most sportsbooks, but that’s a number he’s failed to meet 11 times 19 games. I lean toward backing the under, but again, we can find better value.

The hunt for a safer bet brings us to what Sanders is best at: Carrying the rock. The line for rushing attempts sits at 13.5 and that’s something he’s exceeded in 10 times this year — but just four times in the past 10 games. Again, I’d lean under, but we will tackle rushing yards instead.

Sanders line currently sits at 60.5 rushing yards and I’m smashing the over. He’s had at least 61 in 11-of-19 games, including one of the two appearances in the postseason so far.

The ground game is key for the Eagles and you can be certain they’ll rely on it in the Super Bowl. If you look at the victory in the NFC Championship Game, you can see that the Eagles backfield was a committee, with Kenneth Gainwell beating Miles Sanders in both carries (14 to 11) and yards (48 to 42). Not to mention Boston Scott got six carries for 21 yards.

This is the biggest game of the season, and it’s unlikely the Eagles will have such a large lead at any time as they did against the 49ers, so I’m confident that they’ll look to use their best back (Sanders) over the likes of Gainwell and Scott.

Don’t overthink this one, Sanders is the best runner on a team with an identity built around the rushing game. The Eagles will look to assert their dominance on the ground whether they are leading or trailing.
