Rex Burkhead SB53 Prop Predictions

Patriots Rex Burkhead Super Bowl 53 Props, 1/29/19 Predictions & Odds

Due to injuries, Rex Burkhead was limited to eight games for the Patriots during the regular-season. That said, he’s coming off a 12-carry, 41-yards, two-touchdown performance versus the Chiefs in the AFC title game. Will he also make an impact versus the Rams in Super Bowl 53 and allow bettors to cash in on some of his prop bets?

Public Betting Trends

According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetNow.eu, the Patriots are 2.5-point favorites to beat the Rams. The total, meanwhile, sits at 56.5 points. As of this writing, 79% of the public betting tickets are on the Patriots to cover the point spread.

Player Snapshot

Burkhead was supposed to play a significant role in the Patriots offense this season but injuries limited him to only eight games. When the regular season was over, Burkhead had just 186 yards and zero touchdowns on 57 attempts. He didn’t make much of an impact in the team’s Divisional round game against the Chargers either, rushing just four times for 12 yards and a touchdown, but he did rush for 41 yards and two scores on 12 carries versus Kansas City. He also caught all four of his targets for an additional 23 yards versus the Chiefs.

Rex Burkhead Super Bowl Prop Predictions

Burkhead averaged 7.13 rushing attempts per game when he was healthy during the regular season. Those 7.13 rushing attempts went for 23.25 rushing yards and he also averaged 1.75 receptions and 16.38 receiving yards per game as well.

Rex Burkhead Total Rushing Yards: O/U 22.5

Rex Burkhead Longest Rush from Scrimmage: O/U 9.5

Rex Burkhead Total Rushing Attempts: O/U 4.5

Rex Burkhead Total Receiving Yards on First Reception: O/U 6.5

Rex Burkhead Total Receptions: O/U 2.5

Rex Burkhead Total Receiving Yards: O/U 18.5

Rex Burkhead Total Receiving Yards on First Reception: O/U 6.5

Rex Burkhead Longest Reception: O/U 8.5

It’s like playing Russian Roulette when it comes to figuring out which running back the Patriots will lean on for a given game. Sony Michel is the team’s leading rusher while James White will be heavily involved in the passing game. So, what does that leave for Burkhead? He rushed three times for 18 yards, while catching one pass for 46 yards against the Eagles in Super Bowl LII a year ago. With that as a template, I’m taking the under on some of Burkhead’s props:

Rex Burkhead Total Rushing Yards: Under 22.5

Rex Burkhead Total Rushing Attempts: Under 4.5

Rex Burkhead Total Receptions: Under 2.5
