Over 2.5 Players Favored to Attempt a Pass at Super Bowl 57

  • Super Bowl 57 has -125 odds to have over 2.5 players attempt a pass during the game.
  • Chad Henne attempted seven passes for the Chiefs in the Divisional round against Jacksonville.
  • The Eagles’ defense forced two 49ers QBs to be sidelined with injuries during the NFC Title game.

GLENDALE, Ariz. – Super Bowl 57 is set to be the matchup of the two number one seeds in the NFL with two QBs that will keep playing through injury.

Between Mahomes’ high ankle sprain against the Jacksonville Jaguars in the Divisional Round and Jalen Hurts’ shoulder injury that him miss two of the last three regular season games, online sportsbooks favor the over for total players with a pass attempt in the Super Bowl.

How Many Players Will Attempt a Pass?

  • Over 2.5 -125
  • Under 2.5 -105

During the 2022 regular season, there were two total games in that Mahomes was taken out and Chad Henne was sent into the game. Henne had two total pass attempts during the season but was forced to play a whole drive during the Chiefs Divisional Round game against the Jags.

When Mahomes first went down against Jacksonville, Henne stepped up and recorded seven pass attempts for five completions and a touchdown pass. While Mahomes played every snap for the AFC Championship round, a bad hit could require Henne to step in for a play or two in Glendale.

During the AFC Championship game, Mahomes was sacked three times and took five QB hits from the Bengals’ defense. The Eagles’ defensive line has been one of the strongest in the NFL in 2022 and managed to take out two quarterbacks in the NFC Championship round last weekend.

Haason Reddick has recorded six tackles, 3.5 sacks, and forced a fumble during the Eagles' two postseason games and his pressure could force Mahomes to miss a snap or two. The Eagles forced three players to attempt a pass last weekend making the over favorable at online NFL betting sites for over 2.5 players to attempt a pass during Super Bowl 57.

Could the Eagles Call Another Philly Special?

While Henne jumping in for a snap is the most likely outcome for over 2.5 players to attempt a pass during the Super Bowl, this bet could also hit from the Eagles calling another Philly Special. Even though he has not attempted any with Philadelphia, AJ Brown did attempt two passes during the 2021 season with the Titans.

If the Eagles do call the trick play during the Super Bowl, AJ Brown could be the perfect player to attempt a pass and hit the 2.5 over for total players to attempt a pass.

During Super Blow 56, Cooper Kupp for the LA Rams and Joe Mixon for the Cincinnati Bengals both attempted a pass, giving the game a total of four pass attempts.
