The Chiefs square off with the Dolphins on Saturday in NFL Wild Card weekend and fans hoping to score a BIG payday have several options.
Poor weather conditions are expected for the contest, allowing bettors an opportunity to cash in. While I ordinarily recommend backing Chiefs' stars to have huge games, I expect this to be a defensive slugfest.
With that in mind, let's look at my best bets for Patrick Mahomes, Travis Kelce and Isiah Pacheco for this playoff showdown.
Best Bets for Patrick Mahomes, Travis Kelce and Isiah Pacheco vs. Dolphins
1. Patrick Mahomes OVER 249.5 Passing Yards (-115)
Yes, it's cold. The weather will be frigid with wind chill approaching 20 degrees below zero, but Patrick Mahomes is not new to poor conditions and has a lot of previous success in this kind of weather.
In 14 career playoff games, Mahomes fell short of this prop just twice. The Dolphins are dealing with a slew of injuries and their pass defense is falling apart. Over the last three games, Miami surrendered a whopping 10 yards per pass attempt.
Contrast that to the Bengals, who were dead-last in opponent yards per pass attempt this season (7.6). This is, quite frankly, one of the worst defenses in the sport due to the injuries. Patrick Mahomes will take advantage of it.
This is an opportunity for Mahomes to cement his legacy against a defense ripe for the picking. I believe in him, do you?
