Cleveland Browns vs. Kansas City Chiefs Prop Bets And Predictions

Can Chubb and Hunt carry the Browns to success again

Chubb has been a huge part of the Browns offense this season. In the last two games he carried the ball 32 times for 184 total yards. Kareem Hunt has also seen 18 carries in that time, averaging 43.5 yards per game in the past two weeks. The Browns need to control the clock and keep Patrick Mahomes off the field. Their running game offers them the best opportunity to do just that.

The Chiefs allow an average of 122 rushing yards per game this season. They have been better since the bye, but both the Denver Broncos and Los Angeles Chargers were able to top 100 rushing yards against them in the past five weeks.

1u – Nick Chubb over 67.5 rushing yards @ -110

1u – Kareem Hunt over 31.5 rushing yards @ -115

Can Jarvis Landry and Austin Hooper find the end zone again?

Landry has been proficient in scoring touchdowns in recent weeks. The Browns WR has five total touchdowns in the past six weeks. Since Week 12, Landry has seen 52 targets (8.7 per game) and has been heavily featured in the Browns offense. His ability to line up all over the field will make him tough for the Chiefs to keep quiet over the course of 60 minutes. Given his current run of form, look for Landry to find himself in the end zone once again.

1u – Jarvis Landry anytime touchdown @ +200

Hooper is also on a superb run, having scored four times in the past six weeks. In the last three games he has averaged 10.3 targets per game. The Chiefs have allowed nine touchdowns to the tight end position this season. That is tied for the sixth-most in the league. They have also allowed the fourth most yards to the position, putting the over in play for Hooper’s receiving yards.

1u – Austin Hooper anytime touchdown @ +260

1u – Austin Hooper over 38.5 receiving yards @ -120

Some longer shots on the anytime touchdown market could include Harrison Bryant (+650), and Donovan Peoples-Jones (+550). For the Chiefs, Sammy Watkins is the best value of the regular options at +260, but the Chiefs as a team carry very little value in this game.
