At 67, Pete Carroll 'sculpting,' not getting stale 1h Brady Henderson. Sunday's strangest prop bets 0: I think the Pats game-plan is going to be one that features plenty of short passes around the line of scrimmage. There are going to need to be a lot of things go right for Blount to get more than 61 yards. My last pick leads into my next couple of picks in a way.
As I just alluded to, the Patriots are probably going to utilize quick short passes and avoid passing into the Seahawk secondary. That leaves some options underneath for Tom Brady. Hoomanawanui is a Patriot tight end that should be able to catch at least one or two passes to push him OVER 6 yards. In the opening round against the Ravens he caught 4 balls for 43 yards. Against the Colts he played a much smaller role with only 6 yards. But that 6 yards here would be a PUSH.
I suspect at a minimum he matches that again, but should end with around 20 yards in the Super Bowl. Note that the Seahawks were 3rd last in the NFL in allowing yards to tight ends. This is one bet that will have a chance to hit throughout the entire game. All it takes is one play to win this bet.
This falls in line with the reasoning for my previous pick. I actually think running back Shane Vereen is going to have a big impact in this game. Not only does he line up in the backfield, but the Patriots do like to spread him out as a receiver as well. Just look at the 50 yard touchdown he had against the Jets earlier in the season.
He also had a solid day of receiving against the Ravens and Colts. Against the Ravens Vereen caught 4 balls for 39 yards, and against the Colts he snagged 3 balls for 41 yards. Mahomes will break records Cincinnati Bengals. Roughing passer flags 'out of control' Green Bay Packers.
