Three Best Bets for Sunday: Patriots vs. Chiefs Props

The Patriots enter Week 15 coming off of a 21-18 win vs. the Steelers, and, as 8.5-point underdogs, will look to make it two in a row this Sunday vs. the Kansas City Chiefs.

As you know, you can bet the spread, money line, and total every week at FanDuel Sportsbook, but there are also plenty of exotics and props to wager on as well to try and get your money’s worth.

Here are my three favorites for this weekend’s game:

Anytime Touchdown

The Pick: Rashee Rice +185

Outside of tight end Travis Kelce, rookie wide receiver Rashee Rice has been Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes’ favorite weapon in this Chiefs offense.

A second-round pick out of SMU, the 6-foot-1 speedster has hauled in 59 passes for 663 yards and a team-high six touchdowns this season and has been a lightning rod in an otherwise pretty stagnant Kansas City offense.

I like their leading scorer, at plus-money, to get in the endzone on Sunday.

Ezekiel Elliott Rushing Yards

OVER 62.5            -114

UNDER 62.5        -114

The Pick: OVER 62.5

Ezekiel Elliott turned into the Zeke of old last week in Pittsburgh with Rhamondre Stevenson out, tallying a season-high 29 touches (22 carries and 7 catches), 140 total yards, and a touchdown. 

“I feel good,” the running back said following the win.

68 of Zeke’s 140 yards were on the ground, a number I think he can not only match, but surpass that, against this Chiefs run defense on Sunday.

Patrick Mahomes Alt. Passing Yards

The Pick: 300+ yards +320

Patrick Mahomes has started four games versus the Patriots in his already legendary career, and has thrown for over for 300 yards just once. I think he bucks that trend on Sunday.

While Belichick has seemingly had the two-time MVP and two-time Super Bowl champions numbers, the Chiefs have their backs against the wall this weekend having lost their last two games and four of their last six. Mahomes does everything he can this weekend to get Kansas City back to their winning ways, and that includes a 300+ yard performance.
