AFC Championship: Shopping Lines For Player Props

  • Josh Allen’s rushing yards are set at 36.5 on Bovada.
  • Patrick Mahomes total touchdowns thrown is set at 1.5 on DraftKings
  • Stefon Diggs’ total receptions for the game is set at 7.5 on MyBookie.
  • Tyreek Hill’s total receptions for the game is set at 5.5 on BetRivers.

KANSAS CITY – With the AFC Championship Game on the horizon, bettors should begin shopping lines on the player props for the game in order to make the most beneficial bet. Different online sportsbooks offer tons of different odds on different players.

Some of the more popular player props on legal sports betting sites could be how many yards a player will rush for or how many touchdowns a quarterback will throw. With that said, bettors should analyze the betting lines on different books. Some of the top players in the AFC Championship game that have player props are Patrick Mahomes, Josh Allen, Tyreek Hill and Stefon Diggs.

Starting with Josh Allen, he is clearly one of the best dual-threat quarterbacks in the NFL so it only makes sense that in addition to his normal passing yard and passing touchdown player props that there are also NFL odds on his rushing yards as well on different sportsbooks.

Josh Allen – Total Rushing Yards

  • Bovada – 36.5 Over -150
  • FanDuel – 37.5 Under -115

Comparing Allen’s rushing total from Bovada versus what they are on FanDuel, bettors can cash out on either side as the totals are similarly set. However, bettors looking to bet the Over could look to take it on FanDuel as it is seen as the slight underdog in terms of the odds while on Bovada, the Over is heavily favored.

Looking at the odds on the Under, bettors can find more money betting on it on Bovada rather than FanDuel as the Under is sitting at +115 odds on Bovada while FanDuel, they are favored at -115.

Looking at Allen as a rusher this season, he has hit the Over mark in five games including the playoffs. Being that the Chiefs passing defense has seen better days, it might be worth it to take the under on Allen’s rushing yards on Bovada as he could see an efficient day throwing the ball which means he could rush for fewer yards.

Moving on to the reigning Super Bowl MVP Patrick Mahomes, the different sportsbooks have player props for his total passing touchdowns in the game.

Patrick Mahomes – Total Passing Touchdowns

  • MyBookie – 2.5 Over -125
  • BetRivers – 2.5 Under -125

When betting on Mahomes total touchdown passes, both sites offer nice payouts here as well. When betting on the Over, BetRivers actually has his odds of hitting at a slight longshot with +102 odds while on MyBookie they are heavily favored.

As for betting on the Under, it is favored on BetRivers at -125 while MyBookie has them listed at -115. For those that have the gut feeling that Mahomes will in fact stay under, which he did in his first time out against the Bills, it would be well worth it to take the odds on MyBookie rather than the ones on BetRivers.

Looking at the Bills star receiver, Stefon Diggs, there are player props available on his total receptions going into the game.

Stefon Diggs – Total Receptions

  • BetOnline – 8+ -143
  • DraftKings – Over 7.5 -130

Betting on Diggs’s reception total could get a bit tricky when looking at them being that BetOnline only offers an Over for this line whereas DraftKings offers the standard Over and Under.

Then again looking at the line on DraftKings, bettors could find more money betting on DraftKings as they have the less expensive line at -130. Even for bettors looking to take the chance on the Under for Diggs’s reception total, with BetOnline not offering an under, DraftKings is the way to go.

One of the more popular player prop bets to make is on the total receiving yards that a receiver will have and in this case, what better player to look at than the Chiefs star wideout, Tyreek Hill.

Tyreek Hill – Total Receiving Yards

  • Bovada – 85.5 Over/Under -115
  • BetRivers – 77.5 Over -134

If there is one thing that bettors should know about the Chiefs receiving core, it is that Tyreek Hill is one of the most explosive receivers in the league. That being said, it is surprising that his total is set where it is on BetRivers. Something else to point out is that the Over is the heavy favorite on BetRivers and on Bovada, it is the standard -115 which would offer a nicer payout.
