If you're looking to get a little more creative with your wagering this weekend, there are a ton of NFL prop bets available on FanDuel Sportsbook. Here are three of the best prop bets until more player props are published for this Bills-Chiefs championship game.
1. Alternate Total OVER 60.5 (+200)
Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes seems likely to be cleared from concussion protocol to make this play. Running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire's return would help but not be as critical. These are the two most productive offenses in the AFC. The Chiefs average 417 yards per game and 29 points per game while the Bills average 386 yards and 30 points. That includes the playoffs this season. Despite the Bills' worst offensive performance coming in a 26-17 home loss to the Chiefs in Week 6, the rematch looks like a high-scoring game. See the Chiefs' two games against the Raiders as your guide when both teams scored at least 30 points in those contests, and similar in the Chiefs-Panthers game. Watch the Kansas City weather before making your bets, as the forecast could get ugly, but the Bills are familiar with that weather too. Buffalo will keep attacking a suspect Chiefs defense, and the Chiefs No. 1 offense and pass offense will have similar success again as it did in piling up 466 yards in the Week 6 win at Buffalo.
2. First Half Total OVER 26.5 (+100)
You'll be feeling good about the first prop bet bet when this game clears the first half hurdle and total. The Bills scored at least 16 first half points in six of eight road games this season. Do you believe the Chiefs will do similar at home in this big game? Me too. Over 10.5 total points in first quarter is also a play.
3. Spread / Total Points Parlay Chiefs -2.5 and OVER 54.5 (+260)
We've make our case for a higher scoring game. Now it's which team will win. if Mahomes starts, that's Chiefs. If you prefer the Bills and like the over and analysis, then you can parlay the Bills (+2.5) and over and get +300 odds.
