We're all over Patrick Mahomes in Bengals-Chiefs player props (Photo by Ian Johnson/Icon Sportswire)

NFL Championship Sunday is upon us, and with that, the Chiefs are set to host their fourth consecutive AFC title game. They have won it the last two seasons and are consensus favorites of 7-plus points to do so again this weekend, with a total of 54.5. Below are some of the best player props for the Bengals-Chiefs AFC Conference Championship Game, including the famous Same Game Parlay.

Check out the Same Game Parlay below that focuses on Patrick Mahomes’ athleticism and ability to run the ball. Unless this game gets out of hand early (possible), we see Mahomes running for some first downs. As far as I can tell, the only way Mahomes does not get over his rushing total this week is if the Bengals are non-competitive from the start.

Enjoy Championship Sunday and be sure to follow the advice of Furio from The Sopranos and …. Bet with your head, not over it.” 

Player Props For Bengals vs. Chiefs | AFC Championship Same Game Parlay +510👇

Patrick Mahomes anytime TD Scorer +260 + Over 29.5 Rushing Yards -105 (Caesars Sportsbook)

Caesars, which went live in New York a few weeks ago and Louisiana on Friday, is offering the best price on Mahomes to score a touchdown of any sportsbook on the market. The market disagreement, in fact, is massive, with some sportsbooks pricing Mahomes to score a touchdown at +160 or worse. Grab this anytime touchdown prop and bet ‘over’ his rushing yards again. He prefers to run the ball in big games. We hit this same parlay in the Gaming Today Playbook last week at +700, why not go back to the well again this week?

Byron Pringle Over 39.5 Receiving Yards +110 (DraftKings)

Between Kansas City’s secondary receivers — Byron Pringle, Demarcus Robinson, Mecole Hardman, Josh Gordon — it’s Pringle who has stepped up for the Chiefs. With a big target share and the trust of Mahomes behind him, Pringle is in a solid spot to get ‘over’ here at plus-money.

Patrick Mahomes Over 2.5 Passing Touchdowns +116 (FanDuel)

Locked in, at home, against a bad defense. Patrick Mahomes has hit ‘over’ 2.5 passing TDs in both playoff games. Expect Mahomes to hit his guys — Tyreek Hill, Travis Kelce, Jerick McKinnon, Pringle, and Hardman — early and often. The Chiefs have scored 36, 31, 28, 42, and 42 in their last five games. This offense is beyond elite. This prop should not be +116.  Anything lower than +105 is a pass.

Bengals Player Prop Bets This Weekend: Tee Higgins Over 70.5 Receiving Yards -114 | JaMarr Chase Over 85.5 Receiving Yards -114 | Joe Burrow Over 286.5 Passing Yards -114 (FanDuel)

All of these outcomes are intertwined, so the Same Game Parlay on FanDuel pays out only +344, so I will play these individually. Chase had 266 yards receiving last time these teams played, one of the all-time great games from a wide receiver. A similar game from both him and Higgins is of the utmost importance to the Bengals in order to keep it close.
