Raiders vs Chiefs MNF Prop Bets Tonight

1. Josh Jacobs - Receiving Yards: Over 18.5 (-105)

Josh Jacobs has typically been more of a traditional running back throughout his career rather than a pass-catching back, but that's changed in recent weeks. He's been heavily involved in the Raiders' passing game over the last two games, hauling in 10-of-11 targets for 62 receiving yards. While Hunter Renfrow's absence probably played a part in that, head coach Josh McDaniels has always loved designing passing plays for running backs going back to his time with the New England Patriots. In a game that should feature lots of throwing from both sides (especially if Las Vegas falls behind early), look for McDaniels to dial up a few more passing plays for Jacobs in the backfield and help him reach this total for the third straight week.

2. Clyde Edwards-Helaire Any Time Touchdown (-105)

Clyde Edwards-Helaire has been Kansas City's most prolific touchdown scorer thus far, leading the team with 5 TDs. He's tied with Travis Kelce for the most receiving touchdowns on the team (3) while also adding a pair of scores on the ground. The running back's success in both the passing game and the ground game makes him a good bet to find the end zone again. He's already scored in three of his four games this season, so we love the value here hovering right below plus odds.

3. Chiefs Total Points: Over 30.5 (-106)

This one's pretty simple: The Chiefs score a ton of points, while the Raiders give up a bunch of points. Kansas City leads the NFL in scoring and is averaging 32.3 points per game this year after shredding the stingy Tampa Bay Buccaneers for 41 points in Week 4. Meanwhile, Las Vegas is allowing 25 points per game, which is the ninth-most in the NFL. The key to this prop is Patrick Mahomes, who's dominated the Raiders throughout his career. The Chiefs are averaging 37.4 points per game in his eight career starts against them and have gone over this number in seven of those contests. Expect Kansas City to roll at home and light up the scoreboard in primetime.
