Mahomes Leading the Pack

Patrick Mahomes might not have played for a couple of weeks but he should be ready to go this weekend at home against the Browns. Mahomes is the +150 favorite to have the most passing yards and when you consider his matchup compared to other quarterbacks, you can understand why.

The Browns gave up 501 passing yards to Ben Roethlisberger last week, though some of that yardage did come in garbage time. Nevertheless, the Browns are great against the rush but their passing defense is not as strong. Mahomes should be able to stretch the field with relative ease, facing the softest secondary among the eight remaining teams.

Divisional Round Betting Prop: Will Adams Lead All Receivers?

Don’t Expect Adams To Lead Receivers This Week

Davante Adams is arguably the best receiver in the league, with his 18 receiving touchdowns topping all wideouts this year. However, he has probably the worst matchup he could have in Rams cornerback Jalen Ramsey. Ramsey is the premier shutdown corner in the league and last week did a pretty good job on D.K. Metcalf. Expect Ramsey to go head-to-head with Adams for the entire game. Adams should get a bunch of targets but don’t expect him to lead receivers this weekend.

Best Choice: Travis Kelce

As mentioned above, Mahomes should lead all quarterbacks in passing yards this weekend, meaning that if you go with Kelce at +400 or Tyreek Hill at +425, you probably have a good chance to hit this as well. Kelce finished with the league’s second-most receiving yards this season (1,416), the most ever by a tight end.

There is no question that he is Mahomes’ favorite target and with the Browns probably going to play a two-safety look to prevent the deep pass to Hill, it should give Kelce plenty of field to work with.

Divisional Round Betting Prop: Top Rusher

Le’Veon Bell +1500

Kareem Hunt +2000
Gus Edwards +3500

Chubb Looking Like The Best Option

If the Cleveland Browns want any chance to win their game this weekend against the Kansas City Chiefs, they will need to run the ball effectively, control the time of possession and most importantly keep Mahomes on the sidelines. Chubb is one of the co-favorites at +350 odds to have the most rushing yards this weekend.

Last week, Chubb had 76 rushing yards on 18 carries. He did add 69 yards receiving, but this week the Browns will need him to reach the century mark in yards for them to have a chance.

Best Value: Lamar Jackson

A sneaky option is Lamar Jackson at +425 odds. Jackson led all rushers last week with 136 yards against the Titans, edging out Cam Akers (131 vs the Seahawks). No one rushes quite like Jackson, who has the ability at a moment’s notice to go from a dropback to breaking off a long run.

The Ravens are focused on rushing the ball and they will definitely need Jackson to use his legs against the Buffalo Bills this weekend. One factor to consider with Jackson is that his rushes are sometimes limited by the play of J.K. Dobbins and Gus Edwards. Last week, the two backs combined for 81 yards while Jackson ran 16 times.

Team Odds
Los Angeles Rams EVEN
Cleveland Browns +200
Baltimore Ravens +550
Tampa Bay Buccaneers +800
New Orleans Saints +950
Green Bay Packers +1000
Buffalo Bills +1200
Kansas City Chiefs +2000

Rams Look Like The Team To Bet Here

Among the six games last weekend, the Rams put up the fourth-most points against the Seattle Seahawks but it will be a different task this week facing the Green Bay Packers. The Rams are EVEN money to be the team to put up the lowest number of points, which seems right given that Jared Goff is still struggling to throw the ball accurately coming off surgery on his thumb.

The Rams benefited from a defensive touchdown last weekend, and that might be a source of points this time around as well. They have the best defense remaining and they will create havoc off the line and try to get in the face of Aaron Rodgers as much as possible.

Odds on which team will score the Most points
Team Odds
Kansas City Chiefs EVEN
Buffalo Bills +250
Green Bay Packers +550
New Orleans Saints +700
Tampa Bay Buccaneers +800
Baltimore Ravens +1000
Cleveland Browns +1200
Los Angeles Rams +1500

Don’t Bet Against the Chiefs

The Kansas City Chiefs will put up a ton of points this week. Andy Reid and Mahomes have been unstoppable after a bye, as seen in the numbers below.

I expect the other games to be much closer and low-scoring compared to the Chiefs-Browns game. The Chiefs are going to put up a ton of points in the divisional round, and that is why they are the EVEN-money betting favorite to score the most points this weekend.

OVER 203.5 -115
UNDER 203.5 -125

The UNDER Is The Call Here

As we enter the divisional round of the NFL playoffs, the remaining teams play much tighter as every possession counts. Last week the OVER hit in three of the six games. With two fewer games this weekend, I can see the UNDER being the call.

The NFL divisional round props for total points scored favor the UNDER 203.5, coming in at -125, so the oddsmakers see it playing out that way as well. Don’t expect another 85-point game this weekend. There are some good offensive matchups in the Buccaneers-Saints and Bills-Ravens but I don’t expect any high-scoring games this weekend. In fact, I don’t think a team will put up more than 31 points.
