The Kansas City Chiefs are on the cusp of making their third straight Super Bowl appearance. However, they will need to take care of business against the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday first. Wide receiver Tyreek Hill is sure to play one of the biggest roles in this AFC Championship matchup.
With that being said, here are three of the best Tyreek Hill prop bets for this highly-anticipated NFC clash, courtesy of FanDuel Sportsbook.
Tyreek Hill Prop Bets
1. Total Receptions - Over 6.5 (-148)
Hill was clearly quarterback Patrick Mahomes' go-to target in the passing attack during the Divisional Round. The elite speedster saw a team-high 13 targets and hauled in 11 of them for 150 yards and 1 touchdown. Keep in mind Hill has already played against the Bengals this season, bringing in 6 of his 10 targets in a Week 17 loss. It's not unrealistic to say he could see double-digit targets again in what is expected to be a high-scoring game (54.5 point total). Overall, Hill has racked up at least 7 catches in five of his last six playoff contests. The 27-year-old has a tendency to ball out when it matters the most.
2. Longest Reception: Under 24.5 (-114)
This one is tough to decipher given Hill has posted 30-plus yard receptions in each of his first two playoff games. However, the numbers back it up. The sixth-year pro has logged a reception for over 24 yards in just seven of his 19 games this season. That includes a game against Cincinnati in which his longest reception went for 17 yards. Hill makes his living off of running away from defenders and finding the open gaps in the defense. That may be hard to do against a Bengals team that has given up just 10.2 yards per completion this season (T-No. 12 in NFL). Trust the numbers and back the under here.
3. Most Receiving Yards in CIN/KC (+350)
Targeting Hill to have the most receiving yards in the AFC Championship is worth a shot at +350 odds. This matchup is filled with talented pass-catchers, but Hill only trails Cincinnati's Ja'Marr Chase when it comes to total receiving yards in 2021. The Chiefs have proven that they are not afraid to rely solely on the passing game and that should give their No. 1 WR a ton of opportunities to rack up yards after the catch. It's worth noting that Hill has posted over 100 receiving yards in four of his last six playoff games. His experience playing in the biggest moments gives him a leg up on the competition here.
