In today's list, Lindsey Young offers up five Super Bowl prop bets, a player parlay bets and a fantasy lineup he's eyeing.

PROP BETS

You can literally find anything to wager on Sunday, from an entire list of Taylor Swift-themed parlays on DraftKings to the usual bets on the coin flip, national anthem, Gatorade color, etc. These are intriguing:

1. Quarter Bingo on DraftKings. There are many combinations, but if this one hits, a $5 wager nets you over $1,200 -- 1st quarter, Deebo Samuel receiving TD; 2nd quarter, Travis Kelce receiving TD; 3rd quarter, Christian McCaffrey rushing TD; 4th quarter, Patrick Mahomes passing TD.

2. Most passing/receiving/rushing parlay on DraftKings — Brock Purdy/Deebo Samuel/Isiah Pacheco. $10 would net $260. Not bad.

3. Each team to score a passing and rushing TD is +260 on ESPNBet.

4. Chiefs to score at least one touchdown and kick at least one field goal in each half is +450 on Caesars Sportsbook.

5. Christian McCaffrey to win MVP is +425 on ESPNBet.

PLAYER PARLAY

Again, there are hundreds of combinations to choose from, but this one would have a nice payout and it's got a reasonable shot to hit:

› Brock Purdy over 12.5 rushing yards

› George Kittle over 3.5 receptions

› Travis Kelce over 6.5 receptions

› Christian McCaffrey over 25.5 receiving yards

› Purdy at least one interception

FANTASY LINEUP

These are difficult, but if you hit the right combination (stick to the single entry contests), you can turn $5 into hundreds. Here's one on DraftKings using the Captain's Showdown contest that will likely not have a lot of usage:

› Captain — George Kittle. The captain spot costs more, but he accrues one-and-a-half more points than the other players, so pick wisely. Kittle, who is a big-game player, is much cheaper than the obvious picks, which allows us to get a better overall lineup.

› Flex — Christian McCaffrey. There likely won't be many winning lineups that don't have him.

› Flex — Patrick Mahomes. Even though it's hard to believe the Chiefs are underdogs, if they do get behind, it's likely Mahomes puts up huge numbers.

› Flex — Brock Purdy. The 49ers are going to try and establish the run, but I'm guessing Purdy ends up flinging it a bunch.

› Flex — Rashee Rice. With the 49ers focusing on keeping Travis Kelce under control, there will be lots of opportunities for the electric Rice.

› Flex — Ray Ray McCloud. At this point, we only have $200 to spend, so you don't really expect anything out of this spot (and hopefully won't need it). If Jerrick McKinnon is active, make the switch.

Happy Super Bowl!
