The AFC Championship game between the Cincinnati Bengals and Kansas City Chiefs is set for Sunday at 6:30 pm ET, and a major factor in the matchup is bound to be the play of Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow. Sportsbooks have already released odds on various prop bets related to Burrow’s play in the upcoming game, so let’s look ahead at some of the best lines available when Burrow and the Bengals take on the Chiefs in Kansas City.
AFC Championship Game Player Prop Bets: Joe Burrow
Over/Under Passing Yards (
In his two playoff games so far this season, Burrow has yet to exceed 250 passing yards in a single game. He did so only twice in his last five regular season games, but one of those came at home against the Chiefs in a 27-24 victory on Dec. 4. In that game, Burrow threw for 286 yards on 31 attempts against a Kansas City defense that gave up an average of 220.9 passing yards per game in the regular season.
Over/Under Passing Touchdowns (
In 16 regular season games, Burrow threw for two or more touchdowns in all but five contests. He threw for two scores in last week’s win over the Bills, and also had two in his last meeting with the Chiefs.
Over/Under Passing Attempts (
Burrow only hit 38 or more passing attempts in six of his regular season games, and in none of his two playoff appearances so far this postseason. He threw the ball only 31 times in his last game against the Chiefs, though his last three regular season games all saw Burrow top 39 or more passing attempts.
Over/Under Interceptions Thrown (
Burrow has yet to throw a pick this postseason, and only threw seven all regular season. Of those, four came in just two games, albeit ones in which the Bengals passing attack was especially active. The Chiefs’ secondary was in the middle of the pack on interceptions during the regular season, picking off 11 passes. The team has had one interception so far this postseason.
Over/Under Rushing Yards (
Burrow ran for 31 yards on six attempts last week against Buffalo. In the regular season, he went for more than 15 yards in six games, though the last time he surpassed that mark was against the Chiefs. In that game, he logged 46 yards – his second-highest total of the season. He also ran the ball a season-high 11 times against Kansas City.
Over/Under Total Passing and Rushing Yards (
Burrow has yet to go over 300 total yards in this postseason, but he did so six times during the regular season – including his 332-yard game against the Chiefs. In last week’s win over the Jaguars, the Chiefs defense held opposing quarterback Trevor Lawrence to 283 total yards on the ground and through the air.
