Super Bowl 57 Betting: DeVonta Smith Rec. Yds + Receptions

  • DeVonta Smith is all set for a potential breakout game in the Super Bowl.
  • Smith has a receiving yards O/U of 64.5 yards, which he’s hit nine times this season.
  • Each time he hit it, he had 5+ receptions, and his O/U for receptions is 5.5.

PHILADELPHIA - DeVonta Smith might be the most underrated receiver in the NFL – he racked up 1196 yards in the regular season as the number two receiver on a run-first team.

In the Super Bowl, he could have a star-making performance, and the online sportsbooks are offering odds on it.

DeVonta Smith Super Bowl Receiving Yards Odds

  • Over 64.5 -114
  • Under 64.5 -114

Smith has gone over 64.5 receiving yards in nine of his games played between the regular season and the playoffs.

None of his Playoff games, however, have seen him reach this number, as he fell short both against the New York Giants and the San Francisco 49ers.

One thing working in Smith’s favor is that Jalen Hurts’ passing yards O/U is currently north of 250 – far more than he had to throw in either of the previous Playoff games.

DeVonta Smith Super Bowl Receptions Odds

  • Over 5.5 +100
  • Under 5.5 -130

The amount of receptions Smith gets is a major determinant of the number of yards he gets – he thrives on high-usage games, and the online sportsbooks know it.

Since his role is to be something of an intermediate threat, this makes sense – he’s not burning people downfield most of the time, so he needs usage to rack up yardage.

Only two of his yards overs involved him receiving less than 5.5 passes – and those were both games in which he caught five.

However, all five of his lowest yardage games of the season saw him catch five or fewer passes.

In other words, these two prop bets are likely to go together. If Smith hits the over on receptions, he’s probably going to hit the over on yards, too.

It could be a good idea for NFL betting fans to bet with that in mind – taking the same side of each of these wagers, or parlaying them together if your sportsbook allows.
