Week 9 of the 2022 NFL season features an intriguing AFC clash between two 5-2 teams on Sunday Night Football as the Tennessee Titans take on the Kansas City Chiefs. FanDuel Sportsbook is expecting a blowout despite the identical records, favoring Kansas City by 12.5 points at home with Ryan Tannehill potentially sidelined for Tennessee.
Sunday Night Football Prop Bets
Here are three of the best prop bets for the Titans vs Chiefs matchup, courtesy of NFL odds on FanDuel Sportsbook.
1. Derrick Henry - Over 88.5 Rushing Yards (-114)
After a somewhat sluggish start to the season, Derrick Henry is back in full beast mode. He's topped 100 rushing yards in four straight games, including a ridiculous 219 yards on 32 carries against the Houston Texans last week. Henry's carries have increased every game since Week 2 as the Titans' offense has become increasingly reliant on its star running back. If Tannehill sits again, Henry will be in line for another massive workload. The Chiefs have one of the better run defenses in the NFL, but Henry only needs to average around three yards per tote to hit this prop if he ends up getting close to 30 carries again. Don't expect a minor foot injury to slow him down, either.
2. JuJu Smith-Schuster - Over 55.5 Receiving Yards (-114)
JuJu Smith-Schuster and Patrick Mahomes finally started to click before Kansas City's bye last week, with the former hauling in 12-of-13 targets for a whopping 237 receiving yards over the last two games. Look for them to pick up where they left off against Tennessee's soft secondary, which is allowing the ninth-most passing yards in the NFL this year. Smith-Schuster has exceeded 55 receiving yards in four of seven games this year, so look for him to have another big day leading the Chiefs' receiving corps.
3. Travis Kelce - Anytime Touchdown (-140)
Travis Kelce has been a touchdown machine this year, racking up an NFL-leading 7 receiving touchdowns over his first seven games. He's currently on pace to blow away his previous career-high of 11 scores from 2020. When the Chiefs get down in the red zone, there's nobody Mahomes trusts more than his big tight end. Kelce's consistently high volume (7+ targets in every game) makes him a great bet to find the end zone this week, especially against a Titans defense that is exploitable through the air.
