The Chiefs hope for a 17th straight win over the Broncos this Sunday. Snowy conditions are expected for the contest, though that suits Patrick Mahomes and Travis Kelce well.
Kansas City's superstar duo both dominated in the Chiefs' Week 6 win against the Broncos, with Mahomes throwing for 306 yards and Kelce hauling in nine passes for 124 of those yards.
With the two displaying perhaps their best chemistry in all their years together, I'm eyeing several player props for this rematch. Here are the best bets to make for Mahomes and Kelce in Week 8:
Best Bets for Patrick Mahomes
1. Mahomes Over 273.5 Passing Yards (-113)
Mahomes cleared this prop each of the last three weeks and has over 300 passing yards in each of his last three games against the Broncos.
Even if the weather is poor, that shouldn't impact Mahomes too much due to this new iteration of the Chiefs' offense that prioritizes short passes instead of deep shots.
When the Chiefs played the Broncos in a blizzard in 2019, Mahomes threw for 340 yards. He's weather-proof, especially against a defense that ranks 31st in opponent yards per pass attempt (7.9).
Averaging 288 passing yards per game on the season even with a poor 203-yard effort against the Jets, Mahomes is in line for another 300+ yard passing day and I'm thrilled to get his prop at this number.
2. Mahomes Over 23.5 Rushing Yards (-113)
Mahomes has cleared his rushing prop in six of his seven games this season. He's using his legs more than ever before and I'll keep taking his over here until oddsmakers adjust.
If the weather impacts Mahomes' ability to throw, I like this prop even more. He had 31 rushing yards in the Week 6 game, averaging over 30 per contest this year.
Denver is dead-last in the NFL in opponent rush yards per attempt (5.5) and the team's leaky defense will allow Mahomes to run rampant.
