The Chiefs were disappointing on offense in Week 16, suffering a disastrous loss to the Raiders that stunned all of Chiefs Kingdom.
Nonetheless, I have full faith Kansas City will put forth a better effort this week with the AFC West division crown on the line.
Let's look at my best bets for the Chiefs' three offensive stars below.
Best Bets for Patrick Mahomes, Travis Kelce and Rashee Rice in Chiefs vs. Bengals
1. Patrick Mahomes OVER 266.5 Passing Yards (-115)
Mahomes threw for only 235 yards last week, but the Bengals are the worst team in the NFL against the pass. Thus, I expect a big day.
Cincinnati allows 7.7 yards per pass attempt. Mahomes cleared this prop in each of his previous two games prior to the Raiders meltdown and should heavily rely on Kelce and Rice to defeat this Bengals' defense.
He's still the best player in the sport and should be furious after last week. Mahomes throws for 300+ on Sunday.
2. Patrick Mahomes OVER 22.5 Rushing Yards (-115)
Mahomes was Kansas City's leading rusher last week, putting up 53 yards on a season-high 10 carries.
It was his first time running around in a few weeks. Not so coincidentally, it was the worst game the offensive line played all season. Against a powerful pass rusher like Trey Hendrickson, I'm not optimistic about the offensive line's outlook this week.
In a game the Chiefs absolutely have to win, you can bet Mahomes will run around and clear this prop with ease.
