Player Prop Bets
Patrick Mahomes O/U Passing Touchdowns
Over 2.5 Passing Touchdowns -122
Under 2.5 Passing Touchdowns -106
Winner: Over 2.5 Passing Touchdowns (-122). Patrick Mahomes 38 passing touchdowns this season were the fourth-most in the NFL and the Browns passing defense surrendered the eighth-most passing touchdowns. The Chiefs offense should be able to move the ball with ease in this game. Although Mahomes has only eclipsed the over for this prop in two of his last five games, take the -122 odds that he throws for three touchdown passes as the Browns defense will struggle to contain the many weapons the Chiefs have on offense.
Patrick Mahomes O/U Pass Completions
Over 27.5 Pass Completions -114
Under 27.5 Pass Completions -114
Winner: Over 27.5 Pass Completions (-114). The Browns defense is vulnerable through the air and this matchup is something the Chiefs will continue to attack throughout the game. This should be a high-scoring game and that should give Mahomes the passing volume he needs to complete over 27.5 passes. Taking the over on this prop requires some faith as Mahomes has not completed at least 27 passes in four straight games. However, if the Browns offense can keep this game within striking range there’s no reason why Mahomes won’t go over 27 completions comfortably.
Player Performance Double
Travis Kelce to have 100+ receiving yards and KC to Win (+106)
Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce showed everyone why he’s the best tight end in the NFL this season and has proved to be a lucrative bet for NFL betting participants. Kelce finished with second-most receiving yards in the NFL and should be one of Mahomes top targets in this game. Kelce has seen double-digit targets in five of his last six games and has eclipsed the 100-yard mark in three of those games. Bettors shouldn’t hesitate to roll the dice on this player performance double as Kelce will see the volume to record over 100 yards and the Chiefs should be able to win this game. The +106 odds for this prop are a good value for this bet and could even be a nice leg to add onto a parlay.
Kickoff for the Browns-Chiefs AFC Divisional Round game is scheduled for Sunday at 3:05 p.m. EST and will be broadcasted by CBS.
