Sunday Night Football's upcoming matchup promises to be one of the most-watched games of the week, and we've carefully analyzed the odds to present our top prop picks for Chiefs vs. Jets, supported by the best SNF odds available.

The New York Jets are trying to shake off the loss of their future hall-of-fame quarterback. Instead, they will try to salvage a new love story with Zach Wilson, their 2021 first-round pick. New York is 1-2 entering this game having lost their last two games. 

After the Detroit Lions surprised them in the season opener, the Kansas City Chiefs secured victories against their next two opponents. The Chiefs aim to extend their winning streak against a struggling Jets squad, as they are 8.5-point favorites on Sunday Night Football.

Here are our best Chiefs vs. Jets player props for Sunday Night Football (NFL odds via our best NFL betting sites; pick confidence based on a 1-to-5-star scale).

Chiefs vs. Jets player props: Sunday Night Football

Jets Under 0.5 1st-quarter points (+100 via BetMGM) ⭐⭐⭐⭐

The Jets scored an average of 14 points over their first three games, ranking them dead last in the NFL. None of their 42 total points were scored within the first 15 minutes of the contest. New York hasn’t even crossed the 50-yard line in the first quarter in any matchup this season. 

On Sunday night, the Jets take on a Kansas City defense that hasn't allowed either of its last two opponents to score in the game's opening frame. Overall, the Chiefs have surrendered an average of 13 points per game this year. The only points they gave up in the first quarter this season were via a touchdown to the Lions in the opener.

Chris Jones to record a sack + Chiefs to win (+110 via FanDuel) ⭐⭐⭐⭐

Chiefs defensive tackle Chris Jones logged 2.5 sacks in his first two matchups this season. Last week, he had one of his team’s three sacks against the Chicago Bears. Two weeks ago, he made 1.5 sacks on Jacksonville Jaguars QB Trevor Lawrence. The star defensive end comes off 15.5 sacks in 2022.

He should get plenty of opportunities against Wilson, who's been sacked eight times this season. Wilson was taken down behind the line of scrimmage three times in each of his last two contests. He was sacked twice in Week 1 after entering for the injured Rodgers. 

Kansas City won two straight games while the Jets are on a two-game slide. The series is tied at 1-1 over the last two matchups in the Mahomes era, with the Chiefs the last to win.

Jerick McKinnon anytime touchdown (+230 via Caesars) ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Last week, Chiefs running back Jerick McKinnon scored his first two touchdowns in 2023. He did so having only five total touches on the day. He ended the regular season last year riding a six-game scoring streak. McKinnon had a TD in his only career game against the Jets as a member of the San Francisco 49ers in the 2020 season. 

Surprisingly, New York hasn't surrendered a touchdown to a running back this year, either rushing or receiving. However, Kansas City scored nine total TDs over their last two meetings with the Jets. The Chiefs piled up five touchdowns last week vs. the Bears.
