Top NFL player prop bets for Chiefs vs. Raiders
After simulating Raiders vs. Chiefs 10,000 times, the model predicts that Mahomes goes over 275.5 passing yards at a -117 payout (risk $117 to win $100). Mahomes is averaging one yard more than the bar at 276.5 yards this season, but his career numbers against the Raiders should inspire much more confidence. The 2018 MVP has averaged 318.3 passing yards versus the divisional rival, which is his second highest against any team he’s played at least three times.
Six of his eight career games against the Raiders have gone over 275.5 passing yards, and Vegas’ defense this year would lead you to believe it will be seven of nine after Monday. While the Raiders boast a top-10 run defense, they rank just 22nd against the pass. Similarly prolific QBs like Justin Herbert and Kyler Murray have already gone over 275.5 yards versus them this year but neither of those two can match Mahomes’ arm talent or receiving options. The model has Mahomes falling just shy of 300 yards, but his 296-yard projection makes the Over the smart prop pick. See other NFL props here.
