The Super Bowl is next weekend, and it’s the last chance of the year for people to jump on sites like FanDuel and Draft Kings in order to try and make some money for the last time in the 2016 NFL season.
While it’s going to be a long couple of months until opening day 2017, there’s plenty to be excited about in terms of the last game of the season, with the New England Patriots in most books like fun88 being three-point favorites over the NFC reps the Atlanta Falcons.
While there’s only two quarterbacks to choose from in the biggest game on earth, there’s plenty of other players that could score you some bucks in the last game of the season.
Today we give you a quick rundown of the players we think you should look for, and what surprise players we think should be able to cross the goal line in Super Bowl LI on Sunday, February 5th.
First off, if there’s a QB to take, you have to take Tom Brady. He’s an experienced Super Bowl quarterback, and there’s no doubt while Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan has the wide out edge, you have to take Brady as it doesn’t seem to matter who is catching passing for him, he’s going to find a way to get to 300 plus yards and at least three touchdowns in the game.
As far as a couple surprise players, here’s some players to be on the lookout for in the game next weekend.
Chris Hogan WR Patriots – He may not be a surprise after the big game he had against the Steelers in the AFC Title Game, but look for Hogan to still be a go-to guy that Brady will look for, and we can see him catch 7-8 passes for 125 yards and at least one score from Brady, who seemed to look for Hogan all too often in the win over Pittsburgh.
Taylor Gabriel WR Falcons – This former Cleveland Browns receiver has been a huge part of the Falcons offense this season, and even though he at times has had drops, he can still make a big impact, as he’s been a big target of Matt Ryan this season for Atlanta. Gabriel is a good second or third option for the Falcons and should get plenty of looks Sunday.
Martellus Bennett TE Patriots – With no Rob Gronkowski, the Pats will have another tight end option in Martellus Bennett, who has filled in nicely this year. Look again for Brady to take a look near the goal line for the backup TE, and if the team gets into a pinch, look for a score or two for the Pats TE.
