NFL playoff best bets: The best prop bets for Chiefs-Ravens

The AFC Championship Game between the Kansas City Chiefs and Baltimore Ravens is the first of the two playoff games we will see on Sunday.

In addition to betting on the outcome of the game, there are a number of good prop bets you can make to add to the intrigue of watching and perhaps rooting for a particular team.

If you are looking for some prop picks, we have some below.

Odds come from BetMGM Sportsbook.

Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes longest rush OVER 12.5 yards (-115)

Mahomes doesn’t run a lot but he does in critical moments, and he will have at least one big run in this game.

Ravens TE Mark Andrews OVER 32.5 receiving yards (-125), alternate 50+ receiving yards (+210)

Andrews is coming off injured reserve, but 32.5 yards seems incredibly low for one of the best tight ends in the game and the security blanket for Lamar Jackson. He had a stretch of 5 games out of 6 with 50 receiving yards or more.

I love this ladder.

Chiefs RB Isiah Pacheco longest rush OVER 15.5 yards (-105)

Baltimore’s run defense is tremendous but Pacheco will break at least one run in the game. He has done it all through the playoffs so far.

Ravens QB Lamar Jackson OVER 0.5 interceptions (+110)

Jackson only threw seven interceptions all season but had three in the Ravens’ losses.

If the Chiefs are going to win (which I believe they will), they will need  a takeaway. I believe Jackson gets picked off once.

Chiefs win and Isiah Pacheco TD (+350)

Pacheco has scored in each of the Chiefs’ playoff wins this postseason. This is a reasonable bet with a very nice payout.
