KC Chiefs: 3 best prop bets for Week 3
1. Austin Ekeler – Receiving Yards (37.5)
Here’s the safest bets of all bets. The Chiefs coverage in the second level has been atrocious as the Chiefs watch Nick Bolton struggle as a rookie and Ben Niemann get caught in mismatches, which makes Austin Ekeler an excellent play. Until the Chiefs get Willie Gay back from injury, which could happen next week, it’s going to be a long day for the defense to try to stop opposing backs from being dangerous in the passing game.
Right now the over/under line is set at 37.5 yards for the game, but Ekeler is averaging nearly double that total over the last three years against the Chiefs with 65 yards/game. Take the over here and thank us later.
Pick: Over (-120)
2. Justin Herbert – Passing touchdowns (1.5)
As long as the Chiefs defense is looking like it is, it’s hard to believe a quarterback with the pocket presence and arm of Justin Herbert isn’t going to be stopped from finding his talented pass catchers in the end zone less than twice. This is almost as easy as the Ekeler bet. Take the over here as well.
Pick: Over (-210)
3. Tyreek Hill – Receiving Yards (83.5)
The line on Tyreek Hill’s receiving yards for the day is at 83.5, and we all know that he might reach that total in a single play from Patrick Mahomes. Having said that, the Chargers have figured out ways to minimize the damage in the last couple years from Hill, and he’s only eclipsed that total once in the last four times he’s played against them (and even then, it was 99 yards).
Here’s the thing: Hill can still have a solid game and come up under that total of 83.5. Go for the under here and know Hill can have his moments and still make you money in the end.
Pick: Under (-115)
