The stage is set for an epic clash between the Chiefs and Ravens in the AFC Championship game in Baltimore on Sunday.
We saw Patrick Mahomes and Travis Kelce connect for two TDs in the epic win over the Bills in the Divisional Round and I'm expecting another monster game between the two superstars, though I also think the Chiefs will lean on standout running back Isiah Pacheco just as they have the last couple of weeks.
Let's look at my best bets for the three offensive focal points for the Chiefs as Kansas City gets set for a huge game.
Best Bets for Patrick Mahomes, Travis Kelce and Isiah Pacheco in the AFC Championship Game
1. Patrick Mahomes OVER 240.5 Passing Yards (-115)
Mahomes has played in five AFC Championship games and thrown for at least 294 yards every time. He shines brightest in the biggest moments, and this line is way too low even though the Ravens' defense is ferocious.
The two-time Super Bowl MVP averaged 9.3 yards per attempt against the Bills and I anticipate the Chiefs will need to score to keep up with the Ravens.
He's cleared this number in four of his last six games. While he fell short against Buffalo, that was more of a productive of the long, sustained drives the Bills pulled off. Lamar Jackson's Ravens have more of a quick-strike ability and I think the Chiefs will have a longer time of possession than last week, allowing Mahomes to get enough plays to go over.
2. Patrick Mahomes OVER 1.5 Passing TDs (-120)
I'll happily take Mahomes' passing TD prop every single time it's only at 1.5. He had a pair of TDs to his most trusted target, Travis Kelce, last week and would've had a pair of TDs to Rashee Rice the week prior if not for a bogus block in the back penalty.
He's thrown multiple TD passes in eight of his last nine playoff games, averaging nearly 2.5 TD passes per game in that stretch.
Mahomes shreds top defenses unlike any QB we've ever seen. I'm trusting in Mahomes in a big spot and love getting the value on the over 1.5 at reasonable odds.
