SNF Prop Bets For Week 2 – Chiefs at Ravens

Patrick Mahomes leads the NFL MVP odds 2021
Patrick Mahomes will be licking his lips at the prospect of a wounded Ravens D that gave up 435 yards to Derek Carr in Week 1

We get an early-season mega-matchup between the Kansas City Chiefs and Baltimore Ravens on NBC’s Sunday Night Football. In this article, I will identify the three best SNF prop bets for Week 2 on the market for profitability in the Chiefs-Ravens game.

While it is tabbed as a high-profile matchup, the Ravens are dealing with numerous injuries, and that will certainly influence how this plays out. Everyone’s eyes will be on the quarterback matchup, as it should be. In fact, it’s one of the better fantasy opportunities that both sides will see all season, considering we’ll see plenty of points on the scoreboard.

Top Sunday Night Football Prop Bets For Week 2

Kansas City Chiefs -3 (-3.5 at PointsBet)

Ravens WR Marquise Browns, T Ronnie Staley, CB Chris Westry and DE Derek Wolfe all did not practice on Wednesday, potentially making this an even-more dubious task on Sunday night. OL Tyre Phillips was also carted off and will likely miss some time. More importantly, the Ravens didn’t look that great against the Las Vegas Raiders in the opener. Not to mention, that was a wild game that will have the Ravens’ emotions running high, and sometimes that is hard to come back from on a short week.

Raiders QB Derek Carr was able to pass for 435 yards and two touchdowns against Baltimore in the opener. So, what do we expect Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes to do? This is an advantageous spot for both WR Tyreek Hill and TE Travis Kelce, who had a combined 17 catches for 273 receiving yards and three touchdowns.

It’s also worth noting that Ravens QB Lamar Jackson is 0-3 in his career against the Chiefs. If Brown and Staley aren’t healthy enough to go, he could certainly be looking at an 0-4 blemish.

Mark Andrews, Over 4.5 Receptions (+125 at bet365)

Kansas City has struggled in the past against tight ends and Andrews’ prop number looks solid enough to be confident he’ll cover the over this week.

Notable Mention: Sammy Watkins – over on receptions, if you can find a book laying it (at the time of writing, nobody was touching this one!) Watkins will be gunning for receptions against his former team. If you spot land on an odds grid somewhere (most likely BetMGM), take the over!

PointsBet Same-Game Parlay:
Chiefs Over 30.5 + Chiefs ML (+153)

The Chiefs should clean house in this game, based on the different injuries to the Ravens. The yards the Ravens gave up against the Raiders in Week 1 will have Pat Mahomes owners purring in any fantasy line-ups and we expect him to go off on Sunday night to see the Chiefs rack up the points and bring it home on the moneyline.
