NFL handicapper Stuart Durst takes a look at the AFC Championship game between the Kansas City Chiefs and Cincinnati Bengals. He eyes his best bet on Ja'Marr Chase for the game here.

Kansas City Chiefs vs. Cincinnati Bengals AFC Championship: Ja’Marr Chase Player Prop Pick

While I originally started out with the idea of writing about a Ja’Marr Chase explosion game, going for 100 yards and a touchdown against this Chiefs defense, I pivoted. While you guys don't need a genius to tell you about how Chase can have a ceiling game against this Chiefs defense, considering the rookie finished the season by going 11-266-3 versus the Chiefs, I think we found an even better spot to attack.

Ja’Marr Chase Longest Reception Over 26.5 (-130) (Bet $130 to Win $100)

*Odds Available at FanDuel at Time of Publishing*

This is playable 27.5 yards for 1 Unit or 28.5 yards for 0.5 Unit.

Chase has been one of the best downfield targets in football this year, and his connection with his franchise quarterback, dating back to their LSU days, is abundantly clear. While the Chiefs defense is keenly aware of what Chase can do to them, I expect him to see everything this Chiefs coaching staff has left in the playbook. That's the beauty of the longest reception prop here, Andy Ried can do everything in his power to scheme around Chase, but all it takes is one broken play for the rookie to make his mark on this game. 

Chase is already two for two on the biggest stage, grabbing 57 and 28 yard catches in his first two playoff games. He's only seen the Chiefs once this season, but in that 266-yard performance, he did in fact cash this bet. Chase has been Mr. Reliable in this market all season, and I expect that connection between him and Joey Burrow to be on full display this week.
