Player Prop Markets To Watch In The AFC Championship Game
Cincinnati Bengals at Kansas City Chiefs
Joe Mixon Rushing Yards Over/Under
Mixon went for 105 yards on 20 carries in last week’s road win over the Buffalo Bills, and he logged 50 or more yards in eight of the 14 regular season games he appeared in. Establishing the run early in the hopes of opening up the passing game will likely be a big focus of the Bengals’ offense, which could mean a lot of touches for Mixon. He hasn’t had less than 50 rushing yards in any game this season where he got 14 or more carries.
Travis Kelce Anytime Touchdown Scorer
Especially with Patrick Mahomes’ mobility limited by the ankle injury, look for him to rely even more on Kelce for quick completions. The Chiefs tight end has been a favorite red zone target for Mahomes and scored two touchdowns in last week’s game against the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Ja’Marr Chase Receptions Made Over/Under
Chase saw double-digit targets in most of the games he played in for the Bengals this year, and hauled in fewer than five passes in only one game all season. He caught six or more in 10 of the 12 regular season games he played in, and has 14 catches across two playoff games so far this postseason.
Isiah Pacheco Rushing & Receiving Yards Over/Under
Pacheco typically only gets a couple receptions per game for the Chiefs, but he’s a big part of the overall offense and has logged 60 or more yards in nine of his last 10 games. That includes a 101-yard day in last week’s playoff game, as well as 82 yards rushing and receiving (not counting 116 yards in kick returns alone) the last time these two teams met.
