Hayden Hurst did a decent job filling in the void at tight end for Cincinnati after C.J. Uzomah departed in free agency, catching 52 of 68 targets for 414 yards and two touchdowns.
The veteran has seen an increased role in the playoffs, combining for nine catches, 104 yards, and one touchdown across two games.

Hayden Hurst Receiving Yards Prop
Hayden Hurst: Under 35.5 Receiving Yards (-101) at Caesars Sportsbook
WAGER: 1 Unit
We’re getting an inflated number on Hurst due to his strong showing in the postseason. We have to remember not to overreact to small samples like two games of playoff action.
Hurst averaged 31.8 receiving yards per game during the season, so this prop is already above his usual production. He went Under this total in eight of his 13 regular-season games.
While I understand the appeal due to Hurst’s recent usage, I like the value at -101 odds in taking the Under on the fifth option in this offense.

Hayden Hurst Receptions Prop
Hayden Hurst: Under 3.5 Receptions (+123) at Caesars Sportsbook
WAGER: 1 Unit
The Over on 3.5 receptions is more likely to hit, as he did average four catches per game during the regular season. However, the value is too good to pass up at +123 odds.
Remember, we’re dealing with a player who put up a 14.32% target share this season. That ranked 17th among tight ends.
There’s an easy path to an Under here, especially if the Bengals run at a higher rate to keep Patrick Mahomes off the field, which seems likely.
