The Kansas City Chiefs are looking to bounce back from their Week 1 loss when they take on the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 2, and there are a few ways that they can get it done. 

After watching Kansas City’s Week 1 performance, I believe there are a few ways to attack in the prop market – specifically with Travis Kelce and Isiah Pacheco.

Chiefs vs. Jaguars best NFL prop bets

  • Travis Kelce Anytime Touchdown Scorer
  • Isiah Pacheco OVER 12.5 Receiving Yards
  • Trevor Lawrence OVER 15.5 Rushing Yards

Travis Kelce Anytime Touchdown Scorer

There are a few reasons why I love this play for the Chiefs star tight end in Week 2

First off, Travis Kelce is a touchdown machine, hauling in a career-high 12 scores last season. He’s also had at least nine touchdown catches in four of the last five seasons. 

He is dealing with a knee injury, but that’s bringing the price of this prop down a bit, which makes it a must play in my book. Kansas City may limit Kelce’s snaps if he’s not 100 percent, but there’s no doubt that Andy Reid would want him out there in the red zone. 

Patrick Mahomes needs his most reliable target out there, and I wouldn’t be shocked if he looks Kelce’s way early and often in Week 2 if the tight end plays. 

Isiah Pacheco OVER 12.5 Receiving Yards

The Chiefs’ running back situation is an interesting one with Isiah Pacheco, Clyde Edwards-Helaire and Jerick McKinnon all factoring in for snaps. 

Pacheco was the clear leader in Week 1, and he actually made a big impact in the passing game, reeling in all four of his targets for 31 yards. 

Usually, McKinnon is the top receiving back for the Chiefs, but he made just one catch in Week 1 and also had a drop. 

With a prop number this low, Pacheco could clear 12.5 receiving yards with just one reception. I think this is one of the best values on the board in Week 2. 

Trevor Lawrence OVER 15.5 Rushing Yards

Yes, I have to throw a Jags prop in here, but it’s partially because of the expected return of Chris Jones. 

Trevor Lawrence is going to be dealing with more pressure in Week 2, and it could cause him to get out of the pocket and use his legs. 

Plus, Lawrence saw five (!!) designed runs called for him in Week 1 by Doug Pederson. Clearly, the Jags want to use him as a threat on the ground at times. 

He finished Week 1 with seven carries for 21 yards, and that included two kneel downs. I think if he sees similar usage, Lawrence could pick up 16 or more rushing yards.
