Odds: Chiefs vs Bengals Props
- Patrick Mahomes O/U Passing Yards
- Travis Kelce to Score 1st TD (+600)
- Joe Burrow O/U 2.5 Passing Touchdowns
Patrick Mahomes O/U 308.5 Passing Yards
Patrick Mahomes is putting together another MVP-caliber season, as he currently leads the NFL in passing yards and touchdowns. It’s the former stat we’re focusing on here, with Mahomes sporting a very beatable line against the Bengals.
There is no need to break down the Bengals‘ defense; Mahomes is basically matchup-proof as long as Travis Kelce plays.
Mahomes has gone over 320 passing yards in six straight games, and the Chiefs are 5-1 in that time. He is slicing and dicing defenses like a hibachi chef, and there is nothing special about the Bengals on D.

Travis Kelce to Score 1st TD
Kelce to score a TD is a winning bet. At this point, it’s almost a gimme that the league leader in TDs will score at least once on Sunday. With five touchdowns in his last three games and 12 on the season, it’s a safe bet.
But, much like crime, sure, bets don’t pay. The odds for Kelce to score are too low unless we specify which TD Kelce will score.
Kelce and Mahomes are so locked in right now that if they get the ball first, there is a decent chance that this one-two combo puts KC on the board early.
Joe Burrow O/U 2.5 Passing Touchdowns
While the Chiefs’ offense is top-notch, their defense does leave something to be desired. This is particularly true when playing clutch defense in the red zone, which has been an issue for this team dating back to last season.
It’s such an issue that the Chiefs enter Week 13 ranked dead last in the NFL in red zone scoring defense. The Chiefs allow opposing teams to score touchdowns 70.59% of the time inside the 20-yard line.
Meanwhile, Burrow ranks 2nd in the league in passing touchdowns (23) and has thrown three or more in three of his previous six games. In two games last season, Burrow totaled six passing touchdowns against the Chiefs.
