AFC Conference Championship Cincinnati Bengals vs Kansas City Chiefs Prop Bets
First up is the AFC battle, with HC Zac Taylor’s young Cincinnati Bengals, the AFC North Champs, taking on the rulers of the AFC West, the Kansas City Chiefs, a matchup that should come with a whole lot of scoring, so that means the players’ stats should be impressive.
Here are five terrific player prop bets for this game.

1. Ja’Marr Chase, Tee Higgins & Tyler Boyd each to have 50+ Receiving Yards
|Ja’Marr Chase, Tee Higgins & Tyler Boyd each to have 50+ Receiving Yards|
The question here is whether Bengals QB Joe Burrow can be effective against this Chiefs’ 27th ranked pass defense and spread the ball to all his receivers equally, and given their growing connections, this one looks like it could easily happen.
2. Patrick Mahomes & Joe Burrow to combine for 600+ Passing Yards
|Patrick Mahomes & Joe Burrow to combine for 600+ Passing Yards|
Two of the AFC’s best young quarterbacks facing defenses that are ranked at the bottom of the league, so expect them to go pass crazy in this one and post at least 300 yards through the air apiece, a bet that seems too good to be true given the success these two offenses have had.
3. Travis Kelce or Ja’Marr Chase to have 125+ Receiving Yards
|Travis Kelce or Ja’Marr Chase to have 125+ Receiving Yards|
Regardless of how good these two superstar receivers are, catching 125 yards worth of passes is a lot of production, especially given that these two players will most likely be double-teamed the entire game, so bet no on this one.
4. Tyreek Hill & Travis Kelce to combine for over 200+ Receiving Yards
|Tyreek Hill & Travis Kelce to combine for over 200+ Receiving Yards|
The nice thing about these two KC Chief playmakers is that if you somehow manage to shut down one of them with chips and double teams, the other superstar typically shines from the lack of attention, so this bet looks to be a good one since, combined, these two are deadly.
5. Tyreek Hill to have a 50+ Yard TD Reception
|Tyreek Hill to have a 50+ Yard TD Reception|
Anyone who’s seen Chiefs WR Tyreek ‘Cheetah’ Hill play knows his specialty is using his world-class speed to break downfield past the safeties and cornerbacks for the easy catch and score, so take him to post a 50+ yd TD catch here the way he’s done 13 times since the start of 2016.
NFC Conference Championship San Francisco 49ers vs Los Angeles Rams Prop Bets
Play Fantasy Football Here!
Here are four excellent player prop bets for this one: Second game on the schedule is the NFC Championship game that has the wildcard San Francisco 49ers attempting to upset the NFC West champion Los Angeles Rams in their home stadium, although plenty of Niners fans will most likely make the quick trip south.
1. Cooper Kupp to Have 100+ Receiving Yards & LA Rams to score 33+ Team Points
|Cooper Kupp to Have 100+ Receiving Yards & LA Rams to score 33+ Team Points|
For this bet to work, Rams WR Cooper Kupp and his offense would have to shock the Forty-Niners third-ranked defense like no other team has, with San Fran only giving up 21.5 points per game in the regular season, so a yes on this prop bet would be a tough win to earn.
2. Deebo Samuel to have 1+ Rushing and 1+ Receiving TDs
|Deebo Samuel to have 1+ Rushing and 1+ Receiving TDs|
If the Forty-Niners are to beat the Rams’ high-powered offense, WR turned RB Deebo Samuel will have to have a special game, and only once this season has he scored on the ground and through the air, but that was in Week 10 while beating these Rams, so take the yes here.
3. Elijah Mitchell & Cam Akers to combine for 150+ Rushing Yards
|Elijah Mitchell & Cam Akers to combine for 150+ Rushing Yards|
These two young running backs from opposing teams are on the rise, but for them to have the type of games where the rushing attacks are both this successful seems doubtful, especially against the Rams’ 6th ranked and the Niners 7th ranked rush defenses who give up little ground.
4. Odell Beckham Jr & George Kittle to combine for Over 150+ Receiving Yards
|Odell Beckham Jr & George Kittle to combine for Over 150+ Receiving Yards|
Well, this bet is fun because these two playmakers are hot, and Rams WR Odell Beckham is now clicking with QB Matthew Stafford and San Francisco TE George Kittle is always good for some deep threat receptions, so take this bet and enjoy as these two playmakers produce.
