Jerick McKinnon surprised many observers with his touchdown output this year, scoring 10 times in 17 games.

The veteran running back emerged as a major weapon in the red zone down the stretch. However, we’ve started to see usage shifts in the Chiefs’ backfield during the postseason.

With that in mind, let’s take a closer look at Jerick McKinnon props for Super Bowl 57.

All Super Bowl odds used in these props are current as of Wednesday, Feb. 8, at 3:30 p.m. ET.

Jerick McKinnon Rush Yards Prop

Jerick McKinnon: Under 19.5 Rush Yards (-110) at DraftKings Sportsbook

WAGER: 1 Unit

We saw the Chiefs start to use Isiah Pacheco more in the AFC Championship Game. The rookie played 57 percent of the snaps compared to McKinnon’s 39%.

Pacheco also had 10 carries, while McKinnon only had four. Even when McKinnon saw more usage, it was primarily in the passing game.

The fact that we have seen even fewer carries for McKinnon bodes well for the Under. If we look back at his game log, he has failed to eclipse this number in four of his last five games.

Jerick McKinnon Receiving Yards Prop

Jerick McKinnon: Under 20.5 Receiving Yards (-120) at DraftKings Sportsbook

WAGER: 1 Unit

We’ll add the Under on McKinnon’s receiving yards prop because he saw decreased usage in the passing game as well. The veteran caught 2 of 4 targets for 17 yards in the AFC Championship Game. Meanwhile, Pacheco saw a season-high six targets, hauling in five for 56 yards.

If we go back further, we see more of the same from McKinnon. He didn’t even see a target in the divisional round.

This is an emerging trend that makes you feel comfortable with taking the Under on this prop. Of course, there’s the risk that the Chiefs go back to McKinnon in the passing game, but the safer play is to bet against this outcome.
