Best Bets for Travis Kelce in Week 9

1. Travis Kelce OVER 79.5 Receiving Yards (-110)

Kelce is on an absurd, historic pace in his age-34 season and should keep things rolling in Week 9.

If you didn't catch this week's New Heights episode, it's safe to say Big Yeti is locked in. With at least nine targets in six of his seven games, Kelce is Mahomes' clear most trusted target and should be heavily relied on this Sunday.

According to Pro Football Focus, the Dolphins run zone coverage over 73% of the time but rank in the bottom 10 in the NFL in yards allowed per zone coverage snap (7.53) and yards allowed per zone coverage target (9.2). That'll give Kelce plenty of room to find space and pile up yards.

Miami hasn't fared well against opposing team's top receiving targets. AJ Brown torched the Dolphins for 137 yards and a TD while Stefon Diggs had 120 yards and THREE scores. Shoot, even Adam Thielen caught 11 passes for 115 yards, finding the end zone as well.

Trust in Kelce to deliver in a huge moment on an international stage.

2. Travis Kelce to Score a TD/Chiefs to Win Parlay (+180)

FanDuel Sportsbook offers the ability to parlay a player to score with a team to win and that's exactly where we're going with this second Kelce bet.

You'll note that those three receivers I named in the previous section all found the end zone. The Dolphins are a quick-strike offense and don't emphasize controlling the clock, allowing opposing offenses plenty of possessions. That gives Kelce a huge boost, as you can't stop his connection with Mahomes for long before the duo finds a weakness to explot.

Dating back to the playoffs last season, Kelce has a TD in seven of his last 10 games. If the Chiefs win, as I believe they will, it's likely Kelce gets at least one score in the process.

After calling on himself to play better, you can bet the seven-time All-Pro is ready to deliver.
