The Kanas City Chiefs have returned to the AFC Championship Game for the third year in a row. They'll be hosting the Cincinnati Bengals this time around, looking to get revenge for a Week 17 overtime loss. FanDuel Sportsbook is currently listing the Chiefs as the 7-point home favorites over their opponents.

Here are three of the best prop bets for this AFC Championship Game showdown, courtesy of FanDuel Sportsbook.

Bengals vs Chiefs Prop Bets

1. Travis Kelce - Any Time Touchdown (-155)

This prop bet worked out well last week for Travis Kelce and there's a good chance that it will again. The 32-year-old tight end has been a scoring machine lately, finding the end zone in each of his last five games. That's bad news for a Bengals team that hasn't defended the position all the well this year. While Cincinnati did hold Kelce to just 25 yards on five receptions in Week 17, he did score a touchdown in that contest. A third straight trip to the Super Bowl is on the line for the Chiefs, making it likely that Patrick Mahomes will often look for his favorite weapon once again.

2. Joe Burrow - Passing Yards: Over 287.5 (-114)

Joe Burrow may have not had a passing touchdown against the Tennessee Titans in the Divisional Round, however, he did throw for 348 yards in the win. That brings his average passing yards to an impressive 390.8 over his last four outings. Considering Burrow torched the Chiefs defense for 446 passing yards less than a month ago, he has a realistic chance of doing it again. He's hit the over on this prop five times in his last seven games and doesn't show any signs of slowing down. With this game projecting to be a potential shootout, stick with the over for Burrow.

3. Joe Mixon - Rushing Yards: Under 57.5 (-114)

Despite being Cincinnati's No. 1 running back, Joe Mixon hasn't exactly produced eye-popping numbers as of late. He's finished with 65 or fewer rushing yards in each of his last seven games. That isn't even to mention that he's finished with the under on this prop in each of his last three games. On the other hand, the Chiefs have been great at shutting down opposing running backs lately. Melvin Gordon is the only running back to rush for 58 or more yards against Kansas City in the team's last four games. With this game likely being a high-scoring affair, the Bengals could put priority on the passing game, making Mixon a likely candidate to finish with the under.
