Isiah Pacheco Super Bowl Props

The Kansas City Chiefs have relied heavily on Isiah Pacheco during their run to a second straight Super Bowl appearance.

The second-year back has amassed 63 carries for 254 yards and three touchdowns in KC’s three postseason games, giving Andy Reid’s offense some much-needed balance.

While most of the attention (rightfully) goes to QB Patrick Mahomes, Pacheco should again be one of the focal points of the offensive game plan against the San Francisco 49ers.

With that in mind, here are my favorite Isiah Pacheco props for Super Bowl 58.

Over 35.5 1H Rushing Yards (-110)

If the last few weeks are any indication, Kansas City will be eager to establish the run early against a San Francisco defense that had issues stopping the ground game against Green Bay and Detroit.

Pacheco rushed for 41 yards in the first half of the AFC Championship Game victory in Baltimore and gained 65 yards on the ground against Miami on Wild Card Weekend.

He failed to hit the Over in the Divisional Round against Buffalo (29) but was a bit unlucky as backup Clyde Edwards-Helaire hit a 28-yard run with one of his few touches.

The Rutgers product has seen his workload increase in the postseason, carrying the ball a season-high 24 times against both Baltimore and Miami.

Pacheco has also been a more efficient runner early in games this season, averaging 5.8 yards per carry (YPC) in the first half compared to 3.5 YPC in the second half.

Given his efficiency and the likelihood of volume, I like this play more than a full game Over in case Kansas City finds itself trailing in the second half.

Under 17.5 Receiving Yards (-120)

While I am interested in Pacheco’s potential as a runner, I’m a bit more hesitant to back him as a receiver.

The 24-year-old only went Over this number six times this season and failed to do so in all three postseason games, making a total of six catches for 27 yards.

Pacheco didn’t catch a single pass in Super Bowl 57 even though the Chiefs trailed for the majority of the game, and pass-catching back Jerick McKinnon made just three catches for 15 yards.

Pacheco could see more passing game action with McKinnon (groin) unlikely to suit up this time around, but he likely only clears this if Kansas City gets down big early, something I’m not anticipating given the close spread.
