Kenneth Gainwell has had a strong postseason at running back for the Philadelphia Eagles, and sports bettors are betting big on him to keep it rolling in the Super Bowl.
One sports bettor bet $2,500 on Gainwell to win Super Bowl MVP at 125-1 at BetMGM, which would net that person $312,500. That comes after a bettor hit Gainwell at 250-1 last week at Caesars Sportsbook.
Gainwell has been a trendy player sports bettors have targeted, including our Iain MacMillian, as the Eagles second running back has been receiving action since betting markets opened.
As the Eagles stormed through the NFC, beating the New York Giants and San Francisco 49ers by a combined score of 69-14, Gainwell has built up a ton of momentum. He rushed for a combined 160 yards and a touchdown in the two playoff victories and has actually received more snaps than regular season starter Miles Sanders, 57 to 50.
One thing is for sure, if Gainwell pops off again in the Super Bowl, bettors will be going home happy.
