The Denver Broncos, Los Angeles Chargers and Kansas City Chiefs will all be in action this week as they face the Houston Texans, New England Patriots and Green Bay Packers on Sunday.
Wait, what about the Las Vegas Raiders? Let them rest, they’re on their bye week.
With the race for a wild-card spot in the playoffs continuing to heat up in the AFC, the Broncos and Chargers scoring a win this weekend is a must, all while the Chiefs continue to dominate the top of the divisional standings.
As we get ready for the action this weekend, let’s break down the top three NFL prop betting picks for AFC West action for week 13.
After Scoring Twice Last Week, Take Pacheco To Score, Again
One of the reasons Kansas City continues to be one of the top Super Bowl LVIII odds favorites is how it always manages to diversify its offense and spread the ball around to score from all angles possible. With that in mind, one player who has seen his stock and scoring numbers rise is RB Isiah Pacheco, who is coming off a two-score game against the Raiders last week.
Now, as the Chiefs get ready to square off against the Packers, a team which allows the seventh-most rushing yards, taking Pacheco to reach the end zone at least once, all while KC beats Green Bay seems like an easy NFL bet to back.
Be it through a rushing score, or catching a short pass from Patrick Mahomes in Green Bay’s end zone, take Pacheco scoring and KC winning on Sunday.
Herbert Should Have No Issue Passing for 250+-Yards against New England
LA lives and breathes for whatever Justin Herbert brings to the field week in and week out. The problem is, while all NFL betting lines fans were expecting for Herbert to pop off this season and lead the Chargers to give Kansas City a true run for the division, that hasn’t been the reality.
Still, in what could be a lucky break for LA, as it prepares to face a limping 2-9 Patriots team on the road, Herbert could be able to finally get a chance to let his arm loose and drop a 250+-passing yard performance once again.
New England is not a team you want to be running the ball too much against. Ranked as the seventh best defense against the run, why go through all the trouble?. Instead, passing the ball, something Herbert does pretty well, could work wonders.
With Herbert beating his over in passing yards in four of his last six games, the chances to score an online betting win here are many and plenty so go for it.
Run, Russell Run!
God bless whoever made the Broncos finally start playing good football instead of stinking, something NFL odds fans had become used to this season. While many people credit the team’s defense as the best unit Denver offers, not a lot of people have been talking about Russell Wilson’s resurgence as a trustworthy passer.
Yes, he’s not the QB he once was, that’s a fact, but still, the man has been putting in his work and showing some flashes of being able to be the offensive leader this team needs.
One way in which he has done so is by looking more and more loose with his feet, rushing the ball when needing to escape pressure and gaining some very important yards or downs.
After having cleared the over in rushing yards in five of his last seven games, and now having to face a Houston defense that let Kyler Murray rush for 51 yards, take this bet and rush to a win thanks to Wilson.
