3 Most Enticing Long Shot Prop Bets for Titans vs Chiefs AFC Championship Game
This year's AFC Championship matchup is set, with the Tennessee Titans checking in as 7.5-point underdogs against the Kansas City Chiefs, per FanDuel Sportsbook.
In addition to the typical betting lines available on the game's result, there are plenty of great prop bets to target this week.
If you're looking for an especially high potential payout, these long shot prop bets look like interesting ones ahead of Sunday's matchup.
1. Patrick Mahomes & Ryan Tannehill – 3+ Passing TDs Each (+1100)
Tossing 3-plus touchdowns is nothing new for Patrick Mahomes, who has already done so six times this season — including a 5-TD outing last week. Ryan Tannehill has also done so three times in his 10 starts, and while his playoff numbers have been uninspiring, he should be in for a bounce back here. The Titans will likely be forced to throw the ball as sizable underdogs here, and Tannehill's third highest single-game passer rating this year came against the Chiefs in Week 10. Plenty of scoring is expected in this one, with a 52.5-point over/under, and that means both QBs could be in for big games in a shootout.
2. AJ Brown - 100+ Yards & 1+ TD (+600)
Being an underdog isn't great for Tennessee's chances of a Super Bowl berth, but it is great for AJ Brown's potential stat line. Tannehill threw 35-plus passes twice in the regular season, and both times came in losses. He has averaged 34.0 attempts per game in losses compared to 21.9 per game in wins. Brown's highest single-game target total also came in a loss in Week 15, when he turned 13 of them into 8 receptions, 114 yards and a TD.
3. Derrick Henry - 100+ Rushing Yards & 100+ Receiving Yards (+1600)
Derrick Henry doesn't get involved much as a receiver, but there are couple things working in his favor for this prop. Like Brown, his volume should increase simply from the likely increase in total targets available this week. KC Also allowed big receiving numbers to opposing RBs in the regular season, giving up the third most receptions (6.3) and most receiving yards (59.4) per game to the position. Henry's big-play ability also holds up in the receiving game (he set a career-best mark with a 75-yard reception in the regular season), so he doesn't need a ton of catches to blow up for a big total. Add in his obvious rushing upside, with over 100 yards in seven of his last eight games, and this may not be as crazy a bet as it seems.
