The Baltimore Ravens run the ball more than any team in the NFL.

They led the league in attempts and yards and are continuing that trend so far in the playoffs.

Aside from quarterback Lamar Jackson’s wizardry with the ball, the tandem of Gus Edwards and Justice Hill have given Baltimore a formidable 1-2 punch at running back.

Here’s a look at some Hill/Edwards props to consider for Baltimore’s AFC Championship Game matchup against the Kansas City Chiefs.

All Conference Championship odds used in these props are current as of Monday, Jan. 22, at 12:30 p.m. ET.

Baltimore Ravens RB Prop Pick of the Day

Gus Edwards Rushing Prop

Gus Edwards: Over 39.5 Rushing Yards (-110)

Bet365 Sportsbook • WAGER: 1 Unit

Edwards has had at least 40 rushing yards in three straight games and should benefit if the Ravens take a first-half lead. The Chiefs allowed 182 rushing yards to the Bills in their 27-24 win in the Divisional Round, including 61 to James Cook and another 40 to Ty Johnson on just seven attempts.

The Ravens will no doubt establish their running attack to see if the Chiefs can stop them. KC will probably try to force the Baltimore backs and receivers to beat it, since Jackson had 100 rushing yards against the Texans on Saturday.

Justice Hill Rushing Prop

Justice Hill: Over 29.5 Rushing Yards (-114)

FanDuel Sportsbook • WAGER: 1 Unit

I’d also consider a receiving-rushing combo prop for Hill, who averaged about 38 all-purpose yards per game. But given Johnson’s ability to get outside against the KC defense, plus Hill’s 66 rushing yards against the Texans, taking the change-of-pace back to produce at least 30 yards seems like a no-brainer.
