McPherson's Postseason So Far
McFearless aka Shooter aka Money Mac has been perfect in the playoffs thus far, nailing 4/4 attempts in each game so far including game winners against the Chiefs and Titans. He's now just one more 4/4 game away from breaking Adam Vinatieri's record for most playoff games with 4+ field goals made. And then there's the already-infamous line after his last warm up kick prior to trotting out to kick the game winner in the Divisional Round... “Ah, looks like we’re going to the AFC Championship.”
The narrative is certainly strong and he's been competing with Joey Franchise for headlines so he'll be well in contention for the award if his right leg is busy in LA.
To have the best chance of cashing this pick the game will likely need to be low scoring which looks unlikely given the strength of each offense but (and it's a big BUT) the last time the Rams made it to the Super Bowl in 2019 it was the lowest scoring in history (Pats 13-3 Rams).
It's patently obvious that the Rams are a completely different beast than the team who choked in Atlanta. In 2019 Kupp was out with a torn ACL, Jared Goff was under centre, there was no OBJ and they were facing Belichick and Brady. One thing is the same though and that's the same is Sean McVay and the way they came so close to collapsing to what would have been a career-defining comeback loss against the Bucs in the Divisional Round shows the Rams are still shaky on the big stages.
This bet adds a new angle for you to enjoy whilst watching the game. For the price of a cup of coffee you stand to win $380 (from a $5 bet) if the Bengals kicker delivers as he has done repeatedly since being drafted in the fifth round in the 2021 Draft.
Essentially there are three scenarios where McPherson can realistically be crowned Super Bowl MVP, none of which are hugely unfeasible and at +7500 that's pretty good going:
- He nails AT LEAST three, maybe four, field goals in a moderately high scoring game and neither QB lights it up
- He kicks a clutch 50+ yard walk off game winner (again)
- He goes perfect and/or kicks the game winner in a low scoring game
