Chiefs Prop Bets 2021: Team Bet Picks

Chiefs Over 12.5 Wins (+110)

All odds for Chiefs Prop Bets 2021 bet picks are provided by PointsBet. PointsBet offers a Risk-Free Bet for up to $2,000 for new players.

The Chiefs are fresh off a 14-win season and have recorded double-digit wins in six out of their last seven seasons, five of which came before Patrick Mahomes became the starter. Since Mahomes took over under center, the Chiefs have won at least 12 games in each of his first three seasons.

During this past offseason, the Chiefs went heavy on offensive line, re-signing Austin Wylie, adding left tackle Orlando Brown Jr., guard Joe Thuney and center Austin Blythe, while also drawing guard Kyle Long out of retirement. As for the draft, they used a second-round pick on Creed Humphrey, who was one of the top interior linemen prospects in the entire class. Basically, they went all in on protecting Mahomes, who was running for his life in an underwhelming 31-9 Super Bowl loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers last February.

Beyond their much-improved line, Mahomes and the Chiefs have loads of star power on offense in Tyreek Hill, Travis Kelce, Mecole Hardman and Clyde Edwards-Helaire, among others. Head coach Andy Reid also knows exactly how to use these weapons, which has helped the Chiefs sustain one of the best offenses in the NFL.

On the other side of the ball, two-time Super Bowl Champion defensive coordinator Steve Spagnulo leads this talented group that was ranked No. 16 in the NFL last year. Despite their middle-of-the-road standing, they have championship experience and are loaded with talented personnel including Chris Jones, Frank Clark, Jarrad Reed, Juan Thornhill and Tyrann Mathieu.

The bottom line is, when it comes down to recent history, it is a no-brainer to take the over at 12.5 wins for the Chiefs in 2021-22.

Chiefs Prop Bets 2021: Player Bet Picks

Patrick Mahomes To Lead NFL in Passing Yards (+425 )

To no one’s surprise, Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes is the leading favorite to take home the NFL’s passing yards title next season. According to Pointsbet, Mahomes has the best odds at (+425) ahead of Dak Prescott and Josh Allen.

Although Mahomes led the NFL in touchdown passes with 50 back in his 2018 MVP campaign, he has never led the league in passing yards. However, he has thrown for over 4,000 yards in each of his first three seasons as a starter, as well as eclipsing the 5,000-yard mark in 2018.

Mahomes has dealt with several injuries in the last two seasons, so if he can play a full 17-game schedule this year, he is a strong candidate to lead the league in passing yards for the first time in his career.

Travis Kelce To Lead NFL In Receiving Yards (+2000)

One sleeper pick to record the NFL’s most receiving yards in 2021-22 is tight end Travis Kelce. The 31-year-old already holds a number of NFL records, including recording the most receiving yards in a season by a tight end with 1,416, the most 1,000-yard seasons by a tight end with five and the most 100-reception seasons by a tight end with two.

At this point, the only thing the Super Bowl champion has left to accomplish is leading the NFL in receiving yards. According to Pointsbet, Kelce is a wise sleeper selection at (+2000) odds.

Clyde Edwards-Helaire To Lead NFL In Rushing Yards (+5000)

Another sleeper pick is Chiefs running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire, who has (+5000) odds to take home the NFL’s rushing title. Edwards-Helaire had a strong rookie season in 2020 with 831 rushing yards on 181 attempts to go along with four touchdowns in 13 games. He also had 36 receptions for 297 yards and a touchdown.

Unfortunately, Edwards-Helaire’s promising first season was de-railed by a hip and ankle injury in Week 15. While he was able to come back for the playoffs, he did not have the same impact. In two postseason contests, the rookie tailback had a total of just 89 yards and one touchdown.

Now, in a healthy sophomore season, the LSU product will be expected to take the next step in a high-powered Kansas City offense.
