Think the San Francisco 49ers had a tough loss Sunday night?

Try losing a prop bet because of three straight kneel-downs.

Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes had 44 rushing yards entering the final possession of his team's 31-20 Super Bowl LIV victory over San Francisco and proceeded to take a knee on three straight plays. That brought his rushing total to 29 yards, and David Purdum of ESPN noted the over/under line on the signal-caller's rushing yards was bet up as high as 36.
