Total Rushing Yards

  • Over 20.5 -114
  • Under 20.5 -114

A 20.5 rushing yard total on legal online sportsbooks might seem like too small of a number for McKinnon to stay under, however, he has been used less and less in the run game with his receiving game developing. In his last 10 games, he is averaging 19.2 yards on the ground and on the season as a whole, just 16.68 yards per game.

He has gone 6-4 with the under in his last 10 games and has stayed under in each of his last five outings with four of them staying at 7 yards or less. He has also only gone over five rushing attempts in just seven games this season.

Total Receiving Yards

  • Over 22.5 -112
  • Under 22.5 -117

Super Bowl 57 oddsmakers might have messed up in setting McKinnon’s receiving total too low. He’s been hot through the air all season for a receiving back with 27.84 rec. yards per game on the season with 31.7 ypg in his last 10.

In his last 10 games, he is 5-5 with the over, but in three games with a set total of less than 25.5 receiving yards, he is 3-0 with the over.

McKinnon’s involvement in the passing game this season is impressive to say the least being that he has the fourth most targets on an offense that ranks fifth in pass attempts per game (38.5) and third in yards per pass attempt (7.9).

McKinnon also has that big play ability that Patrick Mahomes looks for with 9 receptions of 15+ yards this season making it even more likely for the over.

Total Receptions

  • Over 3.5 +120
  • Under -157

While McKinnon’s receiving yards speaks for itself, his reception total tells a different story as he is making do with the work that he gets. He is averaging just over 3 receptions on the season at 3.05 and 3.3 in his last 10 games.

He has gone over just three times in that span and is 0-3 against a 3.5 receptions total in that span as well. He has gone over just five times this season and has lost some work to rookie Isiah Pacheco who has been efficient catching all but one target this season.

Anytime Touchdown Odds

  • Yes +175

His odds to score a touchdown should be slammed while they can be as he is second on the Chiefs in touchdowns this season with 10 total and has scored at least once in six of his last eight games. Those that have ridden his hot streak of touchdowns in his last 8 games could be up $1,000 in profit when betting $100 on him to score.

Six of his nine touchdowns in his last eight games have all come from the red zone as well and all six of them have been receiving touchdowns as well. One play that defenses have seen all season is a goal line shovel pass to McKinnon that usually ends in six.
