How many yards will Matt Ryan throw for in Super Bowl 51 on Sunday?
According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, the over/under has been set at 324.5 for the number of yards that Ryan will throw for on Sunday. He also has an over/under of 38.5 for number of total pass attempts, plus an over/under of 2.0 for the number of touchdown throws. (Actually, you can wager on if he'll have up to 3.5 touchdown passes, with varying degrees of odds for each.)
There's an entire list of odds for how many yards Ryan will throw between on Sunday. For example, if he finishes with between 301-320 passing yards, bettors will win $700.00 for every $100.00 that they wager. His odds of throwing between 321-340 are also 7/1 and if he throws for 501 or more passing yards against the Patriots in Super Bowl 51, bettors will nab $1,500 for every $100.00 they wager.
There are also odds for the exact number of completions that Ryan will have on Sunday. The odds that he'll finish with 30 or 31 completions are 10/1, respectively, while the odds for 32 or 33 completions are 12/1, respectively. If he completes exactly 38 or 39 completions, bettors will profit $60.00 for every $1.00 that they wager.
OUR PREDICTION: During the regular season, Ryan completed 23.31 passes per game on 33.38 pass attempts. He also averaged 309.00 yards per contest with 2.38 touchdowns per game. When we factor in New England's defense, we project that Ryan will complete 25-26 passes on 39-40 attempts for 315-320 yards and two touchdowns. Thus, we like the under 324.5 passing yards and the over for pass attempts. We also see value in taking the 7/1 odds that Ryan will finish between 301-320 passing yards.
