Week 3 of the NFL Season culminates tonight with the Chiefs vs Ravens and Matt has a few props from DraftKings. Much like Baltimore, KC has an explosive offense rife with player prop value.
Patrick Mahomes OVER 1.5 TD Passes (-215) parlayed w/ OVER 295.5 Passing Yards (-135)
The Chiefs, despite their insane offensive production, will likely struggle to get much done on the ground against the Ravens defense. This leaves a lot more for on Mahomes’ shoulders tonight to continue his superstar play.
In his 33 career starts, Mahomes has thrown two or more TD passes in 23 of them and with this games’ shootout potential, he might hit that mark before the half.
Oddsmakers are aware of that and, naturally, have set the odds so that we really need to parlay this to mae it worth our while.
The next leg aligns a lot with the first and is based on what I project to be Mahomes’ passing totals.
Much like my other props for this game, I’m really banking on this game being a shootout.
Mahomes openend the season with a bit of a dud as far as passing yards go, barely hitting the 200 mark against the Texans. But the young star bounced right back and layed a 300+ yard game on the Chargers last week and I think he hits the ground running (or pasing) again tonight.
Travis Kelce OVER 69.5 Recieving Yards (-112)
Travis Kelce is a beast of a tight end, especially when he and Mahomes face the ravens. In two career games together, Kelce has reeled in 15 targets for 166 total yard.
See, despite their usually stellar defense, the Ravens have always had issues with opposing tight ends.
2020 thus far has been no different with the Ravens surrendering 15 catches for 14 yards and a pair of TD’s in their opening 2 weeks to tight ends.
The Ravens should be a bit worried considering that Kelce has already been ripping it up and is coming off a game where he snatched nine of 14 balls for 80 yards and a TD.
I fully expect the 1-2 combo of Mahomes and Kelce to keep this offense moving tonight and will be betting on both to play big.
