What Will be More? Scottie Scheffler Round 1 Score (WM Phoenix Open) vs Isiah Pacheco Total Rushing Yards? (DraftKings)

Scottie Scheffler is one of the greatest golfers in the world and a deserving favorite to win the Waste Management Phoenix Open. A ball launcher off the tee box and cerebral around the greens, Scheffler will be in a position to set the tone early and pace the leaderboard. Because of his brilliance in the game of golf, that gives value toward Pacheco as he tries to beat Scheffler’s low score.

Pacheco’s rushing total prop is set in the mid 60’s, sitting around where Scheffler will score barring a catastrophe. Pacheco’s over was already enticing from the get-go as he is in a position to take advantage of a weak San Francisco 49ers front seven. Stopping the run has been an issue for the Niners all season long, coming into the contest ranked 26th in Def Pass EPA and 24th in Def Rush Success Rate.

Kansas City will look to establish the run early and often in order to open up the 49ers elite coverage, giving Travis Kelce and Rashee Rice higher quality gaps for them to exploit. With Pacheco being in a position to increase his usage, as well as Scheffler turning in a low score, take Pacheco’s over in what should be a run heavy Chiefs game script.

Best Bet: Isiah Pacheco Total Rushing Yards

Who Will Score More Points? San Francisco 49ers or Jimmy Butler vs Boston 2/11 (DraftKings)

After thwarting the Boston Celtics in last year’s Eastern Conference Finals, Jimmy Butler gets another chance to strike fear in Celtics fans hearts as they battle it out on the same day as the Super Bowl. The issue this time around is that the Miami Heat have clearly taken a step back in terms of production, coming into the contest ranked 22nd in Offensive Efficiency per TeamRankings.

That spells potential trouble against a Boston defense that has excelled at limiting opposing scoring success, ranking third in Defensive Efficiency. With the Heat struggling with consistency in the scoring department from their secondary scorers, expect the Celtics to zero in on Butler and dare someone else to beat them.

That gives value toward the 49ers to score more points than Jimmy Butler, especially with their advantage on the ground with Christian McCaffrey and a group of pass catchers who can scramble the Chiefs elite secondary. Their pace may be slowed down due to a heavy dose of the run, yet their ability to connect on explosiveness should more than make up for it in an effort to beat Jimmy Butler for this prop.

Best Bet: San Francisco 49ers

What Will Be More? Rashee Rice Receiving Yards +1.5 vs Houston Men’s Basketball Points -1.5 vs Cincinnati 2/10 (Caesars)

The Houston Cougars are once again one of the best teams in college basketball, sitting at No. 1 in Adjusted Efficiency per Kenpom. A majority of their success comes from their defense, ranking first in Adjusted Defensive Efficiency and by a large margin. While their defense is elite, their offense has steadily dipped as of late and now sits at 20th in Adjusted Offensive Efficiency.

Their regression on offense makes for an intriguing battle against Cincinnati as the Bearcats have put together a surprisingly successful season on the backs of their defense. They rank 17th in AdjD, now being in a position to routinely establish their defense in a slow-paced game. Cincinnati ranks 196th in Tempo while the Cougars rank 348th. With Houston dictating the pace, possessions are limited which minimizes scoring opportunities as well.

That bodes well for Rashee Rice as he comes into the Super Bowl with a prime opportunity to carry the Chiefs offense through the air. The 49ers boast elite coverage metrics, yet their success comes from shutting down the middle of the field. That translates more to limiting Travis Kelce, freeing up Rashee Rice outside the numbers as he gets singular coverage. Take Rashee Rice at +1.5 as the Houston Cougars scoring pace will take a hit against a stout Cincinnati defense.

Best Bet: Rashee Rice Receiving Yards
