Joe Burrow Under 279.5 passing yards (-115) ⭐⭐⭐⭐

The Chiefs allow more than 220 opponent passing yards per game but gave up more than 280 passing yards only once since Nov. 1. Granted, Burrow was the one to that did it, but that was during a Cincinnati home game. Will he find the circumstances playing at Arrowhead as favorable?

In last year’s AFC Championship Game in the same venue, Burrow threw for just 250 yards--enough to beat the Chiefs. A similar script could unfold Sunday, as the Bengals look to win the possession battle by deploying running back Joe Mixon with regularity as they did against the Buffalo Bills last week.

This line seems inflated, considering Burrow hasn’t cleared 250 passing YPG since Christmas Eve. So this isn’t a knock on Burrow--I just don’t know that Cincinnati needs him to be a hero to stay competitive. To get the best value on this prop, target the Under at DraftKings (279.5 yards, -115 odds) rather than FanDuel (277.5 yards, -114).

Joe Burrow Over 17.5 rushing yards (-114) ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Burrow is mobile in the pocket but he’s not the kind of guy you think about when discussing running quarterbacks. Still, he has the knack to do whatever it takes to win in the big moment.

He ran a season-high 11 times (46 yards) in a win over the Chiefs earlier this year. In 2022’s AFC Championship Game: five carries, 25 yards. Last week against Buffalo: six carries, 31 yards. Clearly, he’s got it in his bag and uses it when he needs it.

In what could be another active rushing day for Burrow, the FD line at 17.5 rushing yards is incredibly attractive. At -114 odds, it’s friendlier than the alternate line of 20+ yards (-115) at DK. If the odds inflate beyond or the number reaches 20.5 rushing yards, this play would be four stars.

Joe Burrow 2+ passing touchdowns (-180) ⭐⭐⭐

Given the consistency of Burrow’s passing performances this season, this prop is a viable bankroll builder Sunday.

Five of six games where Burrow threw fewer than two touchdowns this year featured a total below 45. In matchups with a total north of 45 points, Burrow went 8-for-9 on this line. The Chiefs, meanwhile, allowed more passing TDs than any other NFL team this season (33).

The odds aren’t especially attractive, but make sure you maximize your ROI with DraftKings' line (-180) instead of FanDuel's option Over 1.5 passing TDs (-188). If the odds dip to -160 or better, this becomes a four-star play.
