Travis Kelce AFC Championship Props 2022 | Prop Bets For Bengals vs Chiefs

Last Updated: Jan 28, 2022

After a thrilling, unforgettable 42-36 overtime win over the Buffalo Bills on Sunday, the Kansas City Chiefs (14-5) will turn their focus to qualifying for their third straight Super Bowl when they host the Cincinnati Bengals in the AFC Championship Game on Sunday.

The Chiefs enter the game on fire, with 11 wins in their past 12 games, and are averaging 42 points per game during the playoffs so far. A big reason for Kansas City’s success this year was star tight end Travis Kelce, who remains one of Patrick Mahomes‘ top weapons.

Let’s dive in to find the best Kelce prop bets for this weekend’s showdown against Cincinnati.

Please note that all NFL gameday odds and lines are current as of 11 a.m. ET on Thursday, January 27.

The Bengals are allowing just 247.5 passing yards per game through their two postseason wins over the Tennessee Titans and Las Vegas Raiders but have not had to match up against as dynamic a skill-position group as the Chiefs have in Kelce, Mahomes, and Tyreek Hill.

This expects to be a shootout, so expect Kelce, Hill, and Mahomes to go off and take the Over quickly before the lines drastically change.

Kelce’s been a touchdown machine lately, scoring six TDs over his past five games and has 10 touchdowns in Kansas City’s past nine playoff games. When the Chiefs get down in the red zone, Mahomes is usually quick to find his big, athletic tight end, as he did for the game-winning touchdown in overtime of their win against the Bills on Sunday.

The Bengals typically bend but don’t break defensively, but it’s hard to matchup against the 6-5, 256-pound tight end, especially while also needing to account for Mahomes, Hill, wide receivers Byron Pringle and Mecole Hardman, as well as running backs Clyde Edwards-Helaire and Jerick McKinnon in the red zone.

Plus, Kelce is a big-play scoring threat as he proved on his 48-yard touchdown late in the first half of the Chiefs’ Wild Card round win over the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Bank on Kelce finding the end zone again for our NFL bet of the day.
