KC Chiefs: 3 best prop bets for Week 15
All odds listed come courtesy of WynnBET.
1. Justin Herbert – Passing Yards (290.5)
This feels like the sort of game in which the chains are going to be moving on a regular basis, which means yards, yards, and more yards. The Chargers can generate production on the ground and in the air, but the Chiefs should really challenge Herbert to be at his best. That could mean significant yardage for the young phenom.
The Chargers are getting back Keenan Allen from the team’s COVID reserve list and Mike Williams is healthy. Austin Ekeler is questionable, but it’s a major boom in the passing game if he’s healthy enough to play more than anything. That should mean a lot of yards for Herbert. The Chargers had 352 passing yards in the first game between the teams and only twice this season has the opposing quarterback not thrown for more than 290. Those totals were both 277 yards, so even the Chiefs’ best isn’t far from this total.
