Tevin Coleman SB54 Prop Predictions
49ers running back Tevin Coleman was injured and knocked out of the team’s win over the Packers in the NFC Championship Game, yet is healthy enough to play Sunday night in the Super Bowl. That said, how effective will he be tonight vs. the Chiefs?
Tevin Coleman Super Bowl 54 Prop Bets
Rushing Attempts: 5.5
Rushing Yards: 23.5
Receiving Yards: 8.5
Touchdown: Yes (+200); No (-240)
Coleman was a full participant in practice on Friday and has been cleared to play tonight in the Super Bowl. He suffered a semi-serious shoulder injury in the NFC title game, one that knocked him out of the game in the first half. While Raheem Mostert is the favorite to receive the majority of the backfield touches tonight for the Niners, Coleman should at least have a small role in the game assuming coach Kyle Shanahan decides to use him.
That said, can we trust that Coleman will be used? Shanahan has praised the back for getting healthy enough to be cleared to play but that doesn’t mean he’ll be effective. And what happens if Coleman suffers a similar injury and is knocked out of the game early?
If you’re playing any of Coleman’s props tonight, the only way to go in my eyes is under. I see the game turning into a shootout anyway and thus, I’m fading a lot of the Niners’ rushing props, even with guys like Mostert who are healthy. If I’m fading Mostert’s rushing attempts, I’m leaning the same when on Coleman.
