- There are two player props offering betting value in the early game on Saturday's NFL playoffs slate.
- This piece will focus on Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes and Chiefs RB Damien Williams.
The Chiefs and the Colts meet at Arrowhead for what is the highest-totaled game of NFL Division Weekend, and we’re checking in on two of best prop bets for the clash.
Kansas City enters the game as a 5-point favorite, hinting at a script which will have their offense dictating things from out in front. While that could mean big things for a chasing-the-game Andrew Luck, the Fantasy Labs Props Tool is leaning toward the unders on the Indianapolis gunslinger, so we’ll pivot to the other side of the ball.
And unfortunately for our collective blood pressure, than means going short on Patrick Mahomes and holding on for dear life.
