Our Chiefs hope to rebound from last week's difficult loss to the Eagles, taking on the hated Raiders on Sunday afternoon with a chance to bury Las Vegas in the standings.

Patrick Mahomes had a subpar game for his standards, while Travis Kelce found the end zone but fumbled late when Kansas City had a chance to put Philadelphia away. Should bettors depend on the two stars to bounce back?

What about Isiah Pacheco, who had one of his best games of the season despite the loss?

Let's look at my best bets for all three offensive cornerstones, starting with the two-time MVP.

Best Bets for Patrick Mahomes, Travis Kelce and Isiah Pacheco in Chiefs vs. Raiders

1. Patrick Mahomes OVER 21.5 Rushing Yards (-115)

This line is way too low given how much Mahomes is using his legs this season. Frankly, I thought we'd see the prop set closer to 26.5 or even 27, so to get 21.5 is a slam dunk.

He's cleared this number in eight of Kansas City's 10 games, averaging 29.6 rushing yards per game on 6.2 yards per attempt. The Raiders rank 27th in opponent yards per rush attempt (4.5) and that's with star defender Maxx Crosby, who is questionable for the contest.

Mahomes' rushing has been the most consistent part of the Chiefs' offense. In a game Kansas City will want to find an offensive identity early, you can trust Mahomes to run around a bit and clear this prop.
